When spring arrives, we’ll already know what the weather forecast will be. (Spoiler: April showers bring May flowers extreme humidity, and a muddy walk to class. RIP.) 

The fashion forecast, however, isn’t as predictable. What spring fashion trends are we going to start seeing on our feeds, in magazines, and on campus? (And more importantly, how can I get them? #QTNA!) The change of the season is always *so* exciting, with new pieces from our fave stores dropping and sparking inspiration to start mentally styling them with the staples in our closets. Not to mention that it’s pretty awesome when we can finally trade our oversized (and totally overworn) sweatsuit in for a new spring ‘fit that’s on-trend.

Curious about what those spring trends are going to be? We’ve got you covered. Check out what styles we expect to see *everywhere* this season, and get inspo on how to include them in your wardrobe.

It’s coming up roses

Get ready to stop and smell the roses because roses are going to be *the* accessory this spring! Whether they’re worn as flirty earrings or topped on a shoe to make a statement, roses are the perfect accent to add to every outfit. 

If you want to rock some roses, we love the Flourish 3D Heels from kate spade new york.  You’ll definitely stand out in these bright red suede mules. Plus, the rosettes will really bring a simple outfit (like some light-washed jeans and a fitted white tee) to the next level. 

Purses with personality

Ever since we started seeing bows everywhere (tied in hair, worn as necklaces, pinned on shirts), it’s almost as if there’s been a universal agreement that we’re going to start having more fun with our fashion. For so many months of the winter, we chose to wear all-black outfits — and as chic as we looked, it didn’t allow the other sides of style to show. So why not add a purse with personality to your wardrobe to help show off your personality?

This Lily Wicker 3D Frog Crossbody​ is the best way to be more playful with your outfits and introduce more color (and quirk!) into your everyday look. We’d wear this spring critter with a front split maxi denim skirt, a crisp white, fitted oxford shirt, and some heeled slides in a neutral color. Hop on over to your cart and make this frog crossbody your new bestie!

Shh…it’s quiet luxury 

Quiet luxury is a super popular trend that we’ve been seeing all over our social feeds for the past few months, but it’s definitely not going anywhere — and TBH, we’re not mad about it. ICYMI quiet luxury includes basic but classic pieces that are well-tailored and are usually in neutral colors

This trend is also commonly expressed with structured handbags, so this Boxxy Crossbody is definitely the purse to add to your collection if you want to enter your quiet luxury era. This small tote made from color-block lamb leather will look great with beige, straight, wide-leg, denim pants, a white tee, and a tan sweater draped over your shoulders.

The NYC glamour girl

NYC is more than just a city known for its fashion — it’s also great inspo for all of your fave ‘fits, like the ones that highlight the newest trend: the NYC glamour girl. In case you haven’t jumped on this fashion bandwagon yet, it’s a little mob wife meets trendy maximalist, and we’re seeing fashionistas everywhere embracing this stylish vintage-inspired look with bold red nails, faux furs, and glamorous accessories

If NYC is totally your vibe (even if you don’t actually live there), then you absolutely need the Morgan Matchbook Embossed Small Bifold Wallet, which has fellow fashion gurus obsessing over it. (So much so that it went viral online and sold out! But don’t worry, it’ll be back in stock by March 2024.)

The matchbook designs are reminiscent of a vintage Big Apple and include things like a martini glass, a record, and a slice of pizza (aka a total city staple!) This wallet is compact, which makes it perfect for fitting in any clutch or purse you grab on your way out the door, and is made with scratch-resistant Saffiano leather so it’ll last long enough for it to actually become vintage one day.

It’s time to put your beloved winter coats and turtlenecks back in storage because spring is almost here! To add more pieces to your wardrobe and to try all the spring trends, head to katespade.com
