Spring is a time for new beginnings and a season filled with vibrant colors, unique fabrics, and the hottest styles. From designer created temporary tattoos and flashy sunglasses to lace fabrics and shiny shoes, the following are the most current must-have trends for the upcoming season.
Attention grabbing frames lead the pack for sunglasses this season. Traditional styles are a thing of the past and oversized, ornate frames are the popular accessory every fashionista should have on-hand. The runways showcased not only the newest trend in frames; they have completely transformed their design making the glasses adjustable and hingeless. Designers have created unique frames with floral prints, stripes and reflective lenses all sure to turn heads throughout the warm season ahead.
Temporary Tattoo Art
One of the hottest trends to hit the runway this season is temporary tattoo art. Chanel, Beyonce, Betsey Johnson, Rodarte and Jean Paul Gaultier have all launched their own line of temporary tattoo art. This is a simple way to change your look and take it to a new level. The funky and fun creations are the ideal accessory to any outfit, and they are suitable for any occasion. If you’re looking to make a strong fashion statement, the powerful tribal tattoos are a great way to get noticed. Other temporary tattoo creations resemble dainty pieces of jewelry and are best adorned on the neck, ears, wrist, ankle, shoulders and legs.
Not only is this an appealing way to accessorize, the designer tattoos are extremely affordable. If you’re looking for an upper end style, you can even find a 24k gold creation for special occasions such as a graduation, prom or wedding. In tune with this new trend is a brand new social site called TattooYou, where you can not only get the latest designs, but vote on artwork submitted by illustrators and tattoo artists to determine which styles will become the next temporary tattoo.
Black and white is at the forefront in color this season and can be seen in a variety of outfits such as striped skirts, patterned dresses and polka dotted shirts. You can also freshen-up your wardrobe this spring with emerald green. This vibrant color makes an excellent pairing with natural beige and ecru. Green accessories can also spruce up any outfit such as a scarf, heels or jewelry.
Lace and Peplum
Lace is the latest dainty fabric making an appearance this spring and can be seen in feminine tops, skirts and dresses. Designers are even using this antique look in stylish coats, shoes and accent pieces. Also gaining popularity down the fashion runways this season is peplum. From jackets and pants to tops and even swimsuits, this ongoing trend is still an obsession with some of the most popular designers.
Shiny shoes of metals and gold are lighting up the runways throughout Europe. This is a fresh and fun fashion statement for your feet and can be shown in flats, heels and sandals. One of the easiest shiny colors sure to blend with any outfit this spring and summer is copper. It can be simply paired with black Bermuda shorts, a white sporty dress or cream colored skirt.
As the seasons change, designers can bid adieu to drab colors and styles from fall and winter. The warmer weather brings brilliant shades, temporary art to adorn your body and a host of fabrics and styles sure to bring sizzle to the most popular months ahead.
