Sunshine or Snow

Spring has arrived #inthefold and us #foldgirls are praying the weather will follow. Seems questionable, I know, as I’ve just come inside from scooping snow off my porch. So… I guess I really don’t know when spring will make its appearance and stay, but what I do know is that we must dress as if it is and then it will come; I promise!


Here are some of my favorite spring fashion trends pulled together by a few of my go-to, most forward, fashion bloggers. These looks are sure to brighten up any snowy day.


For color, wear clean pastels or the boldest version of any hue:


olivia palermo | @oliviapalermo | ash green + ash blush


julia engel (gal meets glam) | @juliahengel | cherry blossom + chiffon


olivia palermo | @oliviapalermo | burnt orange + cyan teal


caroline huang maguire | @carolineinnycity | pops of neon in every shade



Accessorize blazers with a belt or wear it as a dress:


aimee song | @songofstyle | blazer worn alone +  belted


tiffany jais | @flauntandcenter | blazer worn as a dress + belted



Wear plaid, the most trending pattern, fitted, oversized or as outerwear:


caroline huang maguire | @carolineinnycity


lyn slater (accidental icon) | @iconaccidental



Layer all your looks:


olivia palermo | @oliviapalermo


caroline huang maguire | @carolineinnycity



Wear all shades in monochromatic fashion or with color on color (tone on tone) pairings:


aimee song | @songofstyle | shades of marigold


lyn slater (accidental icon) | @iconaccidental | red + raspberry


aimee song | @songofstyle | shades of red currant


aimee song | @songofstyle | monochromatic look: nude to rose to brick to garnet (bottom to top)



Just for fun, try a little tie dye or acid wash:


caroline huang mcguire | @carolineinnycity  



jasmine garnsworthy | @jasminegarnsworthy | acid wash pink (ulla johnson top + in store)




And for the win, please try print mixing with stripes, leopard, gothic florals, tweeds, and all other patterns imaginable:


maria helena bordon meireles | @helenabordon


reese blutstein + courtney trop |@double3xposure + @alwaysjudging 


jenny cipoletti | @margoandme




I believe these looks are so good that it will shake mother nature back into her seasonal place. So do me a favor #foldbabes; start wearing spring now and put that fashion energy into the air. Spring will show up when we least expect it, I just know it!
