I get it, we’re in lockdown, no one is seeing us, and pressing skip on all the cute spring trends this season might be appealing. But, I don’t know about you, I love spring fashion. The lightweight jackets, floaty dresses and vibrant colours, I just love the spring vibes. So although we can’t go outside for this spring season, I wanted to show you five spring trends for this season that can easily be incorporated into your lockdown wardrobe. This idea was totally inspired by Petite Ellie’s Youtube Video all about spring trends in isolation so I definitely recommend giving it a little watch.
Something I also wanted to mention in this post was that I was able to put together all of these outfits and find these spring trends from my wardrobe without having to buy anything new. I understand this doesn’t apply to everyone, but what I did want to encourage was that you don’t need to splurge on a whole new wardrobe to follow the trends, have a look at what you’ve got and get creative with it!
Who doesn’t love a bit of pastel colouring, am I right? It’s cute, feminine and super on-trend at the minute. I am constantly seeing so many cute co ords and knitted tops in a whole bunch of pastel shades from lemon yellow to mint green and I want them all.
Whether it is a pastel knit you have, as I do, or a cute bralette or even a pair of trousers, you can easily incorporate that into a lockdown wardrobe. Keep it casual and comfy, my two favourite things. For instance, I paired this pastel, cropped knit, originally from Topshop, with a pair of joggers. Super basic but it is a subtle was of staying on-trend. I also thought that these joggers matched nicely because of the lighter tones, definitely giving me the spring lounging vibes.
I love a good matching set, don’t get me wrong, but this is definitely getting out of my comfort zone. But… colour blocking is huge this season, especially in the neutral tones.
In my spin on things though, I wore my Lounge leggings with a khaki t-shirt dress from H&M and just tucked it in. Super simple but comfortable for the climate right now. Plus I think that khaki is always such a great alternative to grey or black, it is still muted and easy to style, plus super flattering on every skin tone. You could do this with any colour though. If you have loads of pink in your wardrobe, get crazy and just pair pieces together. They aren’t suppose to match, but I think it is a really good way to test and trial new outfit combinations.
I love this trend so much because I think that it is so flattering. Obviously drawstrings are every girl’s favourite way to snatch the waist and make pants fit, but this time they are on the top. Think of a crop with a drawstring to add a bit of shape but also give an oversized vibe, yes it is dreamy.
This outfit is an all Gymshark look but so many high street brands are now selling tops just like this. I love this one though, it is black, long-sleeve, super simple and I love the way they look with these leggings. You either love or hate these leggings, but I think they are fun and a nice pop of colour. I also love how high waisted they are, as they just flatter that drawstring top, making the waist look smaller than what it is.
This is definitely a very ‘me’ spin on this trend, turning it into yet another sporty outfit, but I am definitely not much of a sheer person. When it comes to lightweight fabrics that may reveal a little, I tend to chicken out, but I thought I’d share it nonetheless and in a more modest way. This idea of sheer fabric is perfect for spring, it is lightweight, easy to wear and super feminine so I think that this would be accessible to so many people.
Personally, I took it down a more casual route, taking a mesh gym top and styling it with a printed sports bra underneath. This would look great in the gym, if they were open, but also for lockdown. Comfortable but also following the trends, which is the entire theme of this post. Anyway, I think this is a super easy take on the sheer features trend. Mesh is more modest than a completely sheer fabric but I think the white still adds that lightweight, feminine vibe.
Ending on a bit of a weird trend, but I have been seeing it loads recently and that is showing off a bit of your bra. Once again, you can take this in so many ways, and you may have guessed it, I took it down the loungewear/ sporty route. But even a bralette with a cardigan or a backless top with some bra strap details, you can do so much with this trend.
I took my low cut sweatshirt from Puma and just styled it with a high neck bralette. Super simple but I actually really like the way it looks. It adds that little extra detail without being too revealing.
I would love to know what you thought of this post and the trends I’ve included.
