Trend Report | Spring 2015

It’s easy to know what this year’s spring trends are… simply Google “Spring Trends,” but it’s another thing to know exactly how to wear them and what to wear them with. That’s why this year I’m going in depth and not only telling you what this spring’s hot trends are going to be, but I’m also going to give you some tips on how you can wear them on the streets of Tampa Bay.

1. Trend – Culottes

Culottes were seen all over the spring 2015 runways, although most I believe that majority of the women are not big fans of this trend.

Honestly, I did not like culottes when I first saw them styled on the runways, but after further consideration and seeing them styled a few different ways, I think when worn right they can be very chic.

Tips for wearing culottes:

1. The bottom hem needs to hit your leg at the right spot, look for a pair that fall somewhere between the bottom of your knee and your mid calf.

2. Wear your culottes with a form-fitting top to avoid looking like a bag lady, see first picture below.

3. Opt for classic colors and patterns to keep them looking sleek.

2. Trend – Fringe

Fringe was a huge trend on the Spring 2015 runways, we saw jackets, skirts and purses all covered in fringe. Fringe is no longer just for cowboy boots or flapper dresses.

Tips for wearing fringe:

1) Opt for fringe details, such as an accent detail on a jacket hem.

2) Stick with fringe accessories. If you don’t want to have to brush your clothing maybe try a fringe purse or fringe boots.

3. Trend – Flares

Many 70s style trends are coming back into the forefront of our fashion, first it was an 80 revival, then the 90s, now the 70s are back and all those flare leg pants are going to be put to good use once again.

Tips for wearing flares:

1) Really go for and play up the 70s vibe with a fun hat or a great pair of sunglasses.

2) Find a pair that isn’t too long or too short and if you’re having trouble finding a pair that is perfect just have them tailored.

4. Trend – Shirt dress

I love when the fashion gods take a break from the crazy and give us a nice simple trend. A shirt dress can be worn by all body types and ages.

Tips for wearing shirt dresses:

1) Find new ways to wear it by layering vests, jackets or even skirts on top.

2) Find a classic color that can easily be combined with other colors.

3) For a different look, wear it unbuttoned over a crop top and shorts.

5. Trend – Statement Earrings

I have never really been an “earring person,” for some reason I just never really loved the way they looked on me, but that’s all been changing and it has a lot to do with all the new fun earrings that have been trending lately.

Tips for wearing:

1) Keep the rest or your jewelry very simple.

2) Wear your hair pulled back in order to show them off.

6. Trend – Colors

This season there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. If all other trends fail, stick with the colors below and you’ll be good to go.
