Spring 2014 Fashion Trends

This weekend a co-worker asked me some of the Spring 2014 fashion trends I would recommend for her to incorporate into her wardrobe and spring style. It sounded like the perfect topic for a post!

When a new season rolls around, it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking you need to rush out and buy a new wardrobe. The transition from winter to spring is particularly exciting as we anticipate the end of dreary, cold days and packing up our sweaters and boots. We just experienced the spring forward with daylight savings time. The days are a bit brighter and longer, and the dream of pedicures and bare legs is soon to be a reality. It’s not hard to get caught up in the heat of the moment (no pun intended) and splurge on new spring things for your closet.

Avoid breaking the bank and crushing your monthly budget. I’ve got 4 simple ways to incorporate spring fashion trends into your existing wardrobe, all under $100. Don’t feel pressure to try them all. Pick a few that speak to you and fit your lifestyle!

*Although Pantone named Radiant Orchid the 2014 Color of the Year, Dazzling Blue is the Top Color for Spring 2014!

BONUS: The Basics

White is an essential color for any spring wardrobe, any year. Having a great white pant, a crisp white blouse, and a well-fitting white blazer is the easiest way to have a perfect spring wardrobe. You can build any outfit around these go-to pieces. Inventory your closet. Do you own all three? Need to add one of these basics to your closet? Look for these white spring essentials with a 2014 trend-twist!
