Have you noticed how magazines love to make preposterous claims? 158 trends you need now! How can anyone digest so many ideas in one season? Better yet how can one incorporate so many trends into your closet? So, I’m leaving the crazy trend forecasting to others, and simplifying trends to the average woman. Here are five key pieces that will get you through the spring and summer months , without sending you in a wild goose chase, that you can incorporate into your existing wardrobe. 

  1. The Ruffled Top: Spring is a cascade of ruffles and flounces. Their femininity transcends temperature and trend, an easy transition into fall 2017. So embrace the thril of the frill. Wear it with jeans, dress it up in the evening with a dress or with a simple T-shirt and shorts. 
  2. The Floral Dress: April showers bring May flowers. The spring/summer catwalks served up an eye popping bouquet of florals. From mini dresses, printed pants, skirts or anything else that retailers could put a flower on, these florals are all about having fun and embracing the joy and romance of summer. 
  3. The Effortless Romper. Both playful and practical, this one piece outfit is a fun and flirty.  The romper goes from day to night or even doubles as a swimsuit cover up. Over the LBD? Break the routine and choose the romper, a perfect choice for date night or a cocktail party. 
  4. Washed Out Jeans: Straight, skinny, boot cut, flare, frayed, high-wasted, doesn’t matter which is your favorite, you want to do it in a light washed denim. Try to always pair it with a dark hued top, so that the light color pops and make this a staple for spring. 
  5. The Denim Jacket. Tried and true, the Denim jacket elevates all the above mentioned styles this spring/summer. Toss it over your shoulders and your floral dress, layer it over your ruffled tee and mini skirt, try it in bright white or buy one that’s distressed and has that worn vintage feel. However you do it, just do it. 

So prepare your closet for some bold colors, bolder prints and more frills than some of us have seen in a while. Try the above trends and watch the fun loving, romantic woman pop up in all of us.
