I’m not sure I can say it enough.  THE OVERSIZED BLAZER.  It’s been around, it’s staying around, you need to try it.

French vs. American Style: The Blazer

The oversized blazer works with so many outfits and is the perfect layering piece for spring. So buy one, and if you don’t like it, I’ll eat my words. Or buy you a coffee. I’m that confident in the powers of the oversized blazer.

2. Knit Polo/Shirt

The knit polo or knit shirt is a very trendy item for spring, and they look ultra-chic with jeans or a skirt.  They give me Wes Anderson vibes, and honestly, I”m here for it. 

Try pairing it with a relaxed pair of jeans and square toe boots, or a midi denim skirt for a nod to the ’70s. 


3. Trench Coat

Trench coats are classic staples, but they find their peak popularity in spring. They are perfect for layering, and for the fickle weather moods of spring.

You can go with a more structured trench or a more relaxed trench, and both will look on-trend for this season.  I love adding a bold color with my trench, as it spices up a basic outfit.

4. Square-toe shoes

Square toe boots were big for fall and winter. And square toe sandals are having their moment for spring.

These shoes are the epitome of chicness right now, and I personally put them up there with the oversized blazer in the “you need to try this” category.

If the idea of square toe heels scares you, opt for a simple strap version which is usually easier to pull off.


5. Cardigans

Cardigans are a big spring fashion trend.  Especially any cardigans that feel like they are from the 1990s or 2000s.  [ 90s style outfit ideas to adopt now] 

Both fitted cardigans and looser cardigans are popular right now, so the decision just depends on what look you are going for.

I love throwing on a cardigan with a pair of jeans and keeping it effortlessly chic.  Plus, they are a great layering piece for spring as well. [ 5 spring outfits, 1 pair of jeans ]

Circle bags and moon bags are a huge spring fashion necessity. They add geometric interest to a basic outfit and they scream polished fashionista.

Both hard structure circle bags and soft circle bags are popular right now. So the decision on which to adopt is yours. But, if you want one fashion hoarder’s opinion, I say try BOTH!


7. Leather, especially colorful leather

Leather is going to be a hot novelty for this season.  And colored leather will also be popping up.  I say invest in a piece you love and will wear past this season as well. Leather items can be pricey and I suggest investing in classics you love so your investment is a sound one.

Leather shorts will also have a lot of enthusiasm around them, so if you’re bold enough, pick up a pair and try them this spring.

8. Blues- all things blue

Blue is EVERYWHERE, just start looking around.  Baby blue, cobalt, and even iterations of turquoise are holding their dominance in the fashion world.

You can go monochromatic with this color, or use it as a pop of interest.  And, if you need help with monochrome styling, click here. LINK

This trend is carrying over from 2019 and I love the feminine vibes, so I approve its’ place in spring trends 2020.

This is a great element to pair with the oversized blazer because it adds a bit of femininity to your outfit and creates a nice balance.


10.  Men’s white blouse

The classic men’s shirt is a great staple to have in your wardrobe. So if you haven’t tried it yet, I suggest you steal one from your boyfriends (or SO’s) closet now. 

I find pairing it with a pair of jeans and square toe sandals to be a winning outfit combo for almost any activity. 

TIP:  IF you want to tuck the shirt in and you don’t want to tie it the front you can follow these steps. Get a ponytail holder and loosely gather the back of the shirt and secure it.  Then button the front of the shirt. And tuck it into your pair of jeans. Gently pull out a bit of ease from around the shirt/waistband.  Loosen hair tie by pulling up gently.  This works best with jeans that are not skin tight.

11. Low top sneakers

Fashion has gifted us comfort this season, appreciate it! Because just like that six-inch heels might be in fashion next season and we will ache for the days when we could have been wearing low top sneakers.

Spring fashion trends are about being transitional and fresh and the classic sneaker imbues that perfectly.

I love adding a classic sneaker to a spring dress or silk skirt for an easy, effortless look.
