We often talk about wardrobe basics and essentials, but today we’re going to talk about some fun spring trends to consider adding to your wardrobe this season.
None of these will be new to you most likely, but it’s always nice to have a comprehensive list in one place. Once you feel like you’re set with your spring wardrobe essentials, you may want to take a look at this list of spring fashion trends and consider adding one or two to your closet.
6 Top Spring Fashion Trends
#1. Bell Sleeves
It’s all about the sleeves this year, and bell sleeves are taking the world by storm. Go big or go home! This isn’t the most practical trend going right now, but it is fun, and almost anyone can wear them. You just want to take note of the placement. If you have wide hips, you may not want a long bell sleeve that draws attention to the hip area, but there are some short bell sleeve tops as well. On the other hand, I am busty, so I avoid bell sleeves that are aligned with the chest area; I prefer an elbow-length bell sleeve or longer.
Here are some cute bell sleeve styles that I like:
#2. Cold-Shoulder / Off-the-Shoulder / One-Shoulder Styles
If it’s not about the sleeves this season, it’s about the shoulders! The off-the-shoulder and cold shoulder styles are back for another season, and I’m also seeing a lot of one-shoulder pieces this spring.
The cold-shoulder style is nice in that you don’t need a strapless bra. If you want to embrace the off-the-shoulder or one-shoulder styles, I just ordered this strapless bra, and I love it. I wore it one night in Savannah, and it stayed up and didn’t feel terribly uncomfortable. I walked all over town in this thing, so I can attest that it stays put. It runs a bit small. I tend to fluctuate between two sizes, and I needed to go with the larger in this bra.

#3. Raw Hem / Step Hem / Cropped Flares
The tops aren’t having all the fun this season. We’re also changing up our pants — namely the hemlines. If you love denim as I do, you have likely noticed the trend towards raw hems and step hems. Crop flares are also trending. As much as I love my denim, I have been hesitant to jump on the bandwagon with these trends. I do like the raw hems and released hemlines, but I’m not crazy about the step hem, and I just cannot abide the idea of a cropped flare. That said, I could not leave them out of a post on spring trends, so here we are.
I’m linking some popular styles below. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one!

I like this trend because you can wear stripes as bold or as subtle as you like, and almost anyone can wear them. The trend this spring is towards seaside stripes — think beach umbrellas and weathered awnings.
Here are some of the striped styles I’m loving right now:
For many years, I wouldn’t be caught dead in a floral print, but florals have been gaining in popularity for the past few seasons, and they’re all over the place this spring so I finally decided to dip my toe in the trend. I like to mix a feminine floral with a tougher distressed denim as seen HERE. Give yourself a few bonus points when you mix stripes and florals.
Here are some floral styles I like.
#6. Wedge Sandals
Wedge sandals have been trending for a few seasons but they’re as hot as ever in 2017.
Here are some of my faves:
