With the current weather, it might be hard to believe that spring is right around the corner. However, in just a couple of weeks, everyone is going to be talking about the warmer temperatures and the newest fashion trends. If you’re a trendsetter, then you might want to stay ahead of the curve and begin creating your spring wardrobe right away. These ten ideas will help to give you a bit of an edge this season as you enjoy looking your best while showing off a bit of talent as you DIY some of your favorite looks to save on money.
1. Monochrome Colors
This season, monochrome colors are going to be one of the best options for you. Monochrome colors are very easy to achieve as well. If you don’t want to work with complementary colors, then you can always wear the same colors together. However, if you do like to use more than one color in your attire then there are lots of options available to you. You might start with sewing together colors for a nice monochrome color block design. This can help you keep things simple and minimalistic while also offering lots of fun to keep your look the envy of all of your friends.
2. Add Floss
Floss is one of the latest trends and is also one of the easiest to achieve. By floss, we don’t mean small threads that hang from your clothing. Rather, the floss will be slightly large and will hang from the clothing in various different places. Sometimes, it may even create a woven or netted appearance. More often than not, the floss can be created from old shirts or other fabrics that can be cut and sewn to a garment. Floss is perfect to add to the bottoms of tops, or in areas that have been cut from a top or bottom. The look of floss adds a bit of pizzazz to your style and will help you feel stunning as you take on the day.
This upcoming season, sparkle is going to be the way to go. One of the best ways to describe this trend is to simply turn yourself into a disco ball. You can achieve this look in many different ways though. One of the best ways is to simply add some sequences to your style. These are fairly simple to sew or glue onto clothing, so you can truly customize your look. However, you can also purchase fabrics that already have a sheen to them. Another option is to glue on rhinestones, small mirrors, and other accents to give your clothing the sparkle that you love.
Nets are going to be a huge part of this year’s spring and summer fashion scene. Although classic netted stockings are going to be a great option to work with this trend, you will also find that there are other options to choose from too. One of the most popular trends is to add netted items over your clothing. You may have a netted overlay for a dress or skirt. You can even add netting as sleeves for some of your clothing. This will definitely help you create a wonderful appearance that is easily made at home. On top of that, you can even add accessories to the mix, included netted purses. There are lots of tutorials to choose from, so you can pick your favorite types of netting and work with the material of your choice.
Love them or hate them, stripes are going to be the way to go as you prepare your spring wardrobe. For most, there tends to be some form of stripe hanging out in the wardrobe even if it might get pushed to the back of the closet. This season is going to be all about owning the stripe though, so have fun with it. It doesn’t matter if you’re working with a horizontal, vertical, or even a diagonal stripe as there are plenty of great ways to keep your style fresh even if the stripes you own are from a few decades ago. You can also make your own stripes using different fabrics. This is a great way to build a skirt that suits your own personal style. Of course, if you really want to make your own striped clothes, there are lots of great ideas and tutorials to choose from.
6. Corset Top
If you’re looking for a more cat walk-friendly style then adding a corset to your look is going to keep you at the height of fashion this season. You can wear a corset in so many different ways too. On cooler days, pair it with a sleeved bodysuit or blouse for a vintage look that never goes out of style. If you’re looking for a trendier look then add a simple corset to your favorite bottoms. You can choose from classic Victorian corsets to simple black corsets that slim and create sheer elegance. This look even allows you to take it to a more formal level when you pair it with a flowing skirt of the same color.
7. Floor Length Styles
This season, elegance is definitely in style, which you will be able to see in the clothing that you choose. Most looks are going to offer bottoms that flow to the ground though. You have plenty of options to choose from here. For instance, if you go with a dress, whether it is formal or not, then you’re going to find many with long skirts. This makes it very easy to mimic the designs if you want to work on styles on your own. Of course, you can also pull off this effect if you choose to go with gaucho pants. These can easily be made with a pattern at home, but you can also find items to spice up in thrift stores.
8. Wide Pants
For the first time in a long time, skinny jeans aren’t at the height of fashion. This might be a shock to those that have skinny jeans for miles in their closet. This season, wider pants are going to take over. One of the most popular items is going to be bellbottoms, but you’ll find a huge selection of boot cut jeans, and jeans that are baggy and comfortable. However, when it comes to pants, the best thing you can do is find what works best for your body. If you prefer the look of skinny jeans, then rock it. You can learn all about finding the perfect pair of jeans for you online, which can save you some money if you don’t want to explore lots of options. If you do want to step away from skinny jeans, you can always alter the jeans that you currently have. Try cutting the seam at the bottom of your pants and adding flairs to improve your style. You can also add lots of patches and other fun designs to help you stand out.
9. Cut Out Styles
Moving in from autumn, cutouts are still going to be a great style to suit your needs. The best thing about cutouts is you can make them out of just about anything. If you have a top that needs new life then simply add some cutouts to improve on its beauty. You can cut out the neckline, side pieces, and so on. You can also do this with dresses, skirts, jeans, and almost anything in your wardrobe. Cut-outs are great for formal styles too as long as you carefully work with the item. Of course, you might want to check out some tutorials before you commit to making your own cut-out styles.
10. Cozy Hoodies/Jackets
You might be surprised to find out that cozy is in this season. One of the most fashionable things you can invest your money in for this spring is a hoodie. Don’t worry about a form-fitting option here, as the cozier the hoodie the better. Of course, hoodies aren’t the only option to suit your needs. You will also find that jackets will also cater to your fashion desires. Long raincoats, baggy coats, and simple designs with extra fluff are truly going to keep you looking great. With the pandemic still happening, the cozy look is going to be one of the best ways to show off your love of fashion.
You will find a huge selection of items to choose from this spring. The clothing is perfect to suit your budget while still allowing you to show off your creativity. On top of that, you will find a lot of the items on the list that are easy to make or already in your wardrobe, which will save you a lot of money as you transition into the new season.
