STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Spring Trends and Summer Fun

Style Advice of the Week

What are the current must-haves for spring? A sleek jacket and a whole lot of denim are items to dream about right now. For a runway reference look no further than Jil Sander’s spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection. The show favored tailored jackets which have been a huge hit this spring. However, the options for spring jackets does not simply stop with a killer blazer. Other options include a raincoat, windbreaker and a motorcycle jacket. This week’s Fashionista’s jacket fits right in with the trend.

The other spring trend that is flourishing right now is denim. It is everywhere, denim jackets, ombre shirts and, my personal favorite, jeans. This is an interesting trend for the spring season, because denim is typically a fall trend. It was found in a cropped cut on the J Brand fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection runways. However, I’m not complaining, I love this trend. This Fashionista works this trend by wearing a cropped pair of light blue jeans.

She accessorizes with a tribal printed backpack. This accessory is cool and festive for the season, because it supplements the laid back feelings of this sunny weather. It is also a popular print during festival season. The print has a bohemian style that reminds me of last’s month Coachella festival. Therefore, break out your tribal prints and you will be ready for festival season this summer!

Jackets and denim are trendy right now. Perhaps you can add a tribal printed accessory to the mix in anticipation for the summer fun.
