Have you ever noticed how the colors in fashion change to reflect their season? Think about it: Summertime is warm, bright, and happy, bringing along bright neons and fun patterns. In the autumn, the leaves change colors, and everything starts turning dark. We have neutral colors such as browns, blacks, tans, and darker greens and reds. Winter turns everything everything cold and dark, with fashion trends and colors generally having a darker feel.
What about spring? Springtime is the time of rebirth– Plants start regrowing, flowers start blooming, trees start re-gain their leaves, and animals either come out of hibernation or migrate back to the northern states. The weather isn’t as nearly as cold as it is in during the winter, but not quite as hot as in the summer.
Pastels are invading store window displays and racks right now. The colors are soft, fun, and girly. Don’t worry– even if your style isn’t super girly, you can still work these colors into your closet while staying true to yourself (although, you might decide that change is a good thing and switch up your style for a season).
Check out the gallery below for some super-cute pastel styles from Von Maur:
This light gray swing dress is perfect for spring! The color isn’t too light or too dark, and it’s super comfy. If it’s a little chilly outside in the morning, throw a sweater over it (see next picture).
The same gray dress with a light/pastel pink sweater thrown over it. Perfect for chilly mornings and school dress codes!
A lavender dress a floral printed lace-y “sweater”. The pastel colors are perfect for spring and the “sweater” makes it appropriate for school.
The same lavender dress with a plaid shirt thrown over it. This makes it a little more casual and is probably more practical for school.
I love this black-and-white-striped skater-style skirt! You can never have too many skirts for springtime. The mint green tank gives this look just enough color (and the straps are wide enough to comply with most schools dress codes!).
This purple T-shirt dress is literally the most comfortable thing on earth. I seriously want one in every color. The jean jacket is perfect for those chilly spring mornings and freezing classrooms.
Okay, so most schools have rules against wearing hats, but this outfit would still be super-cute without the floppy sunhat. Wide leg and bootcut jeans are coming back, and the light pink blazer is cute without being overly dressy. Add the hat for a weekend day shopping with your friends.
Another huge trend for this spring is floral print, which only makes sense with all the flowers blooming outside. The gallery below features some cute new styles from Von Maur and Forever 21.
Skinny jeans are always in style– they look great on everyone with anything. This floral cold-shoulder tank and cream vest/sweater is perfect for a weekend day full of shopping with your friends.
This white/cream floral dress is perfect for spring– the colors are just bright enough, and the flowers are super-cute. The wide sleeves are cute and comfy. I’d wear this to school, but make sure it’s long enough so you don’t get in trouble!
Who says you can’t wear black in the spring? This dress is super cute and perfect for spring. The flowers brighten it up and make it fun and girly. Throw a sweater or jean jacket over it for school, and you’re set for the day!
White is a super spring-y color. This white skirt with pastel flowers would be perfect for school with a tank and matching sweater!
Another trend I’ve been seeing lately is suede and faux-suede. I love thins trend and how it looks, however, I personally think it’s something to be worn in the fall and winter. The material is, and looks, too heavy for the warmer weather of spring. Forever 21 has some cute things on their website that you can check out!
