- I’m a celebrity stylist, so I’ve got a good idea about what looks will be trending this spring.
- Scarves and long gloves can elevate your outfit with light layers.
- Yellow, lilac, and hot pink are all popular colors you should expect to see everywhere.
It’s finally time to start letting go of our winter layers and adding more pops of color for spring.
As a celebrity stylist, I know the scoop on what you should add to your closet, from fun colors and scarves to cardigans and gloves.
Read on for 10 fashion and beauty trends you should expect to see this season, plus how to embrace them for a fun, finished look.
Scarves come in many prints and patterns
Scarves offer a stylish way to choose your level of modesty, and I’ve fallen in love with them.
It’s important to note that scarves can also go beyond fashion, and people of different cultures wear scarves for different reasons. Growing up in Serbia, formerly known as Yugoslavia, I saw many women cover their hair in scarfs tightly pulled under their neck to hold against the rain and snow or keep their curls in place after a salon run.
I think scarves can be functional and stylish and I recently wore a hot-pink silk one with a fun print and matching outfit.
Yellow is coming back brighter than ever
It can be intimidating to incorporate such a bright color into your look, but you can start with makeup.
In fact, your eye-shadow palette can be the critical starter in this look. Everyone knows a New York gal lives for an easy beauty trend, and I like Jason Wu’s colored eye shadows that have the right amount of hue to help add sunshine to your day.
Lilac is the pop of color your closet is calling for
You can date this trend back to the mid-1990s when pastel colors were huge. Lilac was all over teen magazines and runways.
In 2018, I sourced this color while styling a client and truly enjoyed pairing it with matching trousers and an Alfani mock turtleneck.
If you’re looking to add this shade to your closet, start with a nice T-shirt, sweatpants, or trousers. Since the color isn’t very loud, it’ll fit right in with your wardrobe essentials.
A feathered hoodie is the closet upgrade you didn’t know you needed
Hoodies can give you a soft touch after a long day and they’re great for running errands. Options with fun, feathered tulle on the shoulders can help upgrade your look.
I own a nude feathered hoodie and pair it with matching snakeskin pants and colorful shoes.
You can also dress this look down with a pair of sneakers or nice flats.
Cardigans of all shapes and styles are the go-to this season for completing your look
Cardigans are the perfect go-to when getting ready for work, running errands, or going out with friends. And now they’re trending in a ton of styles, colors, and textures.
You can wear the piece with a pair of jeans and belt it to add some style and shape, or you can toss it on top of your favorite dress as a fun layer.
Long evening gloves aren’t just for fairy-tales
Aside from her glass slippers, Cinderella’s long, white gloves were a great fashion moment, and now this trend is coming back in a modern way.
I recently wore cheetah-print, faux-leather elbow-length gloves with a two-toned dress, and they sealed the look.
You can also tone this look down by pairing gloves with a denim jacket with rolled-up sleeves and bottoms of your choice. It’ll still look just as fun.
Pleated skirts are more than just a school trend
Now is your time to grab a couple of pleated skirts for the spring and summer. They’ll be a seasonal essential.
Perfect for the workplace or an everyday fit, pleated skirts can be worn with your favorite sneakers or a cute pair of open sandals.
You can easily dress them up with a belt, T-shirt, and cool pair of heels.
Hot pink is back and here to stay
I love all things pink, so it’s already a color staple in my wardrobe that I wear almost every other day.
The color is bold, so it’s natural to feel unsure about how to wear it.
Recently, I paired pink leather joggers with a matching crew-neck sweatshirt that was trimmed with fur along the sleeves. I broke up the look with a pair of cow-print boots and a scarf with a different color story.
Cargo pants are an exciting Y2k throwback
Cargo pants have made a comeback, and they’re a comfortable bottom to add to your back-to-work wardrobe.
I jumped on this trend, living in the nostalgic feeling of myself in high school trying to wear cargos with crop tops.
I recommend elevating the look with a purse, a cool pair of shoes, or any other accessories that make you feel your best. I like wearing them with a pair of heels, a hoodie, and an orange fuzzy jacket.
