Following us from season to season is animal print. It’s become our favorite neutral. Keep your wardrobe fierce with all the prints: leopard, zebra, tiger and my personal favorite, snake. How to wear: You’re meant to have fun with this one. Animal print shoes glam up any outfit. Turn heads with a leopard coat. You can tone the prints down with black or pair with bright colors.

Color blocking will be a big hit this Spring. I asked my fashionista friend, Hayley Smith, how she wears it. “Color block? Yes, please. I’m wearing a grey sweater, grey pants and grey heels right now”. How to wear: Stack your outfit with different shades for a more professional look or go bold by wearing split complementary colors.
“Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” We know pastels are in no way a new trend. However, pastels are going to be everywhere and we’re living for it. Update this pastel look by going sheer. Wear a darker bralette for eye catching contrast. We also love the texture in this lavender sweater, shop the distressed look here.
Neon made an appearance in 2009. Now it’s back and not just for the Kar-Jenners. You’ll feel bright and beautiful in this neon tank. This trend can be intimidating. If you want to be a little more subtle, you can accessorize with a neon belt or handbag. Hot magenta and bright orange are my personal favorite neon colors.
HEAD TO TOE EARTH TONES
Beige, Beige, Beige! When you need a break from neons and pastels, make a monochromatic statement in beige. Hayley says, “I love earth tones, wearing it head to toe is an easy simple chic look.” Swap out your LBD for a neutral look. If you’re really feeling adventurous with this trend, check out this jumpsuit.
This is my go-to for a cute, casual look. The plus side? It’s super easy. A rocker tee is a must have basic for the season to throw on with jeans and some jewelry. Shop the look here.
There you have it, sis. Get in on these trends early to start your spring semester with style. We can’t wait to see how you work it.
