While the world feels like a different place than it did just a few weeks ago, one thing remains unchanged: dressing up can be a whole lot of fun, and even help create a sense of normalcy. Shaking up your closet with a few on-trend pieces is a great way to keep things fresh for spring. Whether you’re yearning for the light-hearted vibe of breezy fabrics, the functional ease of utilitarian chic or ’70s-inspired silhouettes and patterns, we’ve got you covered. Also on the menu? Balloon leg jeans and chunky chain link accessories. Read on for the full scoop on this season’s hottest trends, plus a few affordable options to shop now.
Trend: Breezy Fabrics
Breezy fabrics are an easy way to get your wardrobe ready for warmer days. Eyelet—this season’s prettiest detail—has been given a new look via bright colours and sculptural shapes, while crochet garments have also made a comeback, endorsed by high-fashion labels like Alexander McQueen and Fendi. If you're looking for a delicate look, pointelle—a type of lightweight knit with lace-like openwork—is also big this spring.
For a laid-back vibe, pair these must-haves with other easy-breezy textures, like denim or brushed cotton.
