Spring is coming up and it’s a great time to refine our fashion skills for the upcoming season. For those of us that have a bit of trouble coming up with outfits this season, here are some important tips on what you can do to refine your fashion sense.

One thing that’s imperative this season is denim. Denim has started to make a huge comeback in the past couple of years, and people are starting to make their own creative choices with it. One thing that is a big “no” is “denim-on-denim”. Although, some might say that wearing different shades of denim, for example, light-washed jeans with a dark-washed long sleeve shirt is a good fit. But if you’re thinking about wearing dark washed jeans with a dark washed top, please, put the outfit down, reevaluate what you’re doing, and find other options.

This year, as the spring shows rolled out, one thing became very, very apparent; 90’s jeans are coming back.

Now, when you hear someone say 90’s jeans, you’re most likely to think of JNCOs, but that’s not exactly what 90’s jeans are. Think more of a raver or skater girl type of jeans. However, aside from just jeans, you can expect to see people showing off their true style wearing denim skirts, shirts, dresses, and more.

Another thing that you might be wondering about is colors… Colors are such an essential part when it comes to fashion. The Spring 2016 Fashion color palette is one to die for. It evolves from snow white to a more leafy green to a crimson red. In between, you can find colors more on the metallic side and certain colors that are silky-like. Some of the top 10 colors for this upcoming season are ‘Rose Quarts’, ‘Snorkel Blue’, ‘Buttercup’, ‘Green Flash’ and my personal favorite, ‘Fiesta’.

Moving on from the color palettes, you can expect to see a lot of plaid this season.

“Gingham will always have a place in our hearts (and on the runways) but this season, designers are saying, ‘supersize me.’ We spotted large plaids at Thakoon, Marissa Webb, Brooks Brothers, Victoria Beckham, and Wes Gordon, to name a few,” Nikki Ogunnaike, Senior Fashion Editor at Elle Magazine reports.

Lace, Lace, Lace! Lace is back and better than ever. Lace is being used in so many different ways this season. Aside from being used for blouses and shirts, designers are incorporating lace into their designs for dresses.

“A sensual lightness lingered through the spring collections, as designers rendered transparencies, lace and lingerie to reveal an introspective beauty,” reports Mayte Allende, fashion reporter for Womens Wear Daily.

A lot of the lines that you can expect to be seeing this season differ from Marc Jacobs, Kendall and Kylie, Ralph Lauren and DKNY to more extravagant designers like Céline, Balenziaga, Oscar de la Renta and Hood By Air.

It really looks like designers are incorporating more kind, serving up the romantic, eye-catching, and ornate fashion styles this year.
