1. Stylish Backpacks
Spotted on the runways for spring, you can't go wrong with a backpack purse, as pointed out by Marie Claire. Perfect for mommies and those without children, there are plenty of places to stash your stuff in this beautiful satchel in Pantone's Limpet Shell, one of the top ten colors of 2016. This vegan leather backpack purse is by popular designer Matt & Nat, and you could pair it with neutrals and colors alike. It's tailored enough for the office and casual enough for a weekend jaunt.
2. Cold Shoulder Tops
No, cold shoulder doesn't mean I'm encouraging you to dis your friends, but I am suggesting you could potentially show a little more skin and let the sun shine on your shoulders. The adorable and flattering crochet knit top from ASOS is perfect for rising temps and looks super chic with minimal effort. Pair with jeans, shorts, or capris for an outfit that's on trend for spring.
3. Raw Hem Jeans
Glamour reveals that raw hem jeans are a spring wardrobe essential, and this light coral pair is about as hot as they come. Skinny jeans are popular, but this bell bottom style will add an unexpected flair (pun totally intended) to your outfits this spring. The gorgeous color looks a lot like the Peach Echo hue from Pantone and would work very well paired with a variety of solids and prints. I especially love these worn with platforms and wedge shoes.
4. Feminine Lace
Lace was all over the spring fashion runways and this stunning lace dress is just the piece to get you through the busy events season this year. Perfect for weddings, brunches, church, baby showers, and more, this frock from Self-Portrait in Pantone's Serenity is one you don't want to pass up! Accessorize with a pair of strappy heels and a box clutch, or dress it down with a pair of espadrille wedges and a matching handbag.
5. Flirty Florals
As highlighted by Lyst, the classic pointy toe slingbacks pictured above from Ann Taylor are simply stunning. This shoe style is in for spring and these are perfect for the fashion forward woman and momma on the go—quickly slip them on and you'll be out the door. Pair these Scuba Blue-hued flats with shorts, skirts, skinnies, and just about anything else you can dream up for a beautiful pop of flower power.
I hope these five looks for spring will have you inspired to seek out some new pieces for your wardrobe. This just shows that popular runway styles can be both trendy and totally wearable at the same time. From lovely Pantone colors to feminine details, the season is full of beautiful surprises.
