Throw in a bright color such as yellow, pink or electric green to your outfit. Instead of focusing on pastels, go bolder. Neon colors are in, and these make your outfits pop.
Go For Brighter Colors

Niagara, which is a denim-like blue, primrose yellow, and lapis blue are the top three trend colors for 2017. Close behind them are flame, which is a red-orange, island paradise, which is a cool blue, pale dogwood, greenery, which is a yellow-green, pink yarrow, kale, and hazelnut. Pink as a whole is going to be big this year.
Fashion Trends of 2017
Slogan T-shirts are big this year, and they have a feminist flare to them. Look out for these tees at just about any retailer. Find slogans such as “Free to Roam” and “Be Your Own Hero.” These T-shirts have an air of empowerment to them and are great for a more casual look. Hoodies continue to be popular. They are sportier this year instead of the street styles the last time these made a hit in the fashion world. Look for floaty dresses with sequins on store racks. One-shoulder tops and dresses are here to stay. Clothing with vibrant stripes contain elements that are big, bright and bold. Knit dresses featuring stripes should make waves as new fashions hit retailers. One interesting trend this year includes wearing robes out in real life. Stores stock robes that are more laid back as well as evening robes. These evening robes will take more of the style of a fancy dress, while still being technically a robe. These aren’t traditional robes like you would wear around the house after you take a shower.
Spring Jackets and Layers
To go along with the warming weather, you’re going to want to layer your clothing. Not only does layering keep you warm as you shed your winter jacket, it presents a way to mix and match portions of a wardrobe. Keep your lighter jackets or knits out as the weather begins to lose its bite. These plaid pieces still look great in the spring. Consider brighter colors for your spring jacket to add a pop of color when you retire that winter coat for the season.
Leggings Are Your Friend
Black leggings are a great staple to have in your wardrobe. While it’s not warm enough yet to have your bare legs out, you can still wear a shirt dress or sweater dress. Leggings keep you warm while maintaining versatility to pair with many different options. They are an ideal wardrobe option to transition your outfits into spring.
Wide-leg pants are great for spring as they are both trendy and comfortable. These maintain great for air flow as well as for styling them with high heels. They also work great with a variety of different tops.
Sunglasses and Accessories
As you peel off the hats and scarves, you can use other accessories to take their place that work well in spring. By simply adding sunglasses or jewelry, this lightens up your look. Accessories allow you to show more skin as the weather warms, and these side items showcase different stuff in your fashion arsenal as you do. Plus, they are an incredible way to add a splash of color to your wardrobe.
