This is the season we have all been waiting for; goodbye winter, hello spring! It is time to spice up your wardrobe with bright colors and prints, any bold or neon colors will leave all eyes on you.

There are so many different looks to choose from, so make this spring all about being daring and different. This is what makes fashion fun, you have the freedom to express yourself through your wardrobe and you can take all of your favorite pieces and make a statement. With that being said, let the shopping begin.

Jump right into this spring by making sure you have all your key spring essentials. Throw your boots to the back of the closet and swap them out for your favorite wedges, flats and sandals. Don’t forget to add a bright polish on your toes to have them compliment your cute, new shoes.

From the runway to campus, I have seen many women rock wide leg trousers. I absolutely love these pants because you can pair them with anything from a crop top, blouse or a statement tank. You can transition the wide leg trousers from a more sophisticated look to a relaxed weekend look, depending on what works for you.

High waist denim is definitely a must have!  For the ladies who are looking for a way to help elongate your frame, high waist bottoms are the way to go.Sometimes high waisted pants can be a hit or miss for curvier women, but it all depends on the color and cut of the bottoms. It is important to keep in mind while shopping for your new spring wardrobe to find pieces that will flatter your shape.

You can strut the streets this season with a trendy pleated skirt or printed trousers. You definitely can’t go wrong with pastel colors, and there are so many playful patterns to choose from, whether it is strips, floral or chevron. Don’t be afraid to make your wardrobe pop with bold prints.

When shopping for trendy outfits, don’t forget how important it is to be comfortable, so find your favorite mid or maxi skirts or dresses. If you want to go for a sportier look, mesh pieces may be what you are looking for. Depending on your style, blousy shorts, tailored trousers and light dresses are perfect for the spring, and before it gets too hot you can still have fun with layering.

Last but not least, you can’t forget the key essentials, trendy sunglasses, bold nail and lip colors, hair accessories, jewelry and a statement bag. Bring out the fashionista in you this season by accessorizing and making sure you have all your key spring essentials to make this season a complete success.
