If you hadn’t already noticed it in many of my blog posts, I’m kind of obsessed with the current trends this season. Spring is one of my favourite seasons, as it presents the atmosphere with warm weather, yet there is still a chill lulling around. Alike fall, you are able to sport transitional, as well as summery pieces, which add a great mix to your wardrobe! This is why spring is one of my favs.

In a few of my posts, some of the key trends this season have been mentioned par moi, but I have still left a few out. Here is what is #trending this season (yes, you may pronounce that “hashtag trending”).

Florals, bright colours, easy fabrics and leather jackets, cut off jeans, sandals and sneakers are all key parts of the warmer trends. Florals are normally a key part of women’s collections, but are actually really evident in men’s this year! The Hawaiian-vacation-inspired look is taking the scene lately, and I love it. Popping up in silk bombers, jeans and tops, floral prints are on point, and something to look at dudes!

As mentioned in previous S&L posts, fringe is a big trend in women’s fashion this year. In handbags & accessories as well as RTW (or “Ready To Wear”, for the fashion illiterate), fringe is swishing up on the scene, literally. It adds the Coachella-festival-esque feel to any look, and instantly makes you feel like you’re dressed for hot, summery weather! So fringe it up ladies!

Evident in both men and women’s collections, the mesh and sportswear-inspired style is really on trend right now! Don’t be afraid to throw on your Nike sneakers, an old jersey, and a leather baseball cap. You are totally allowed to wear these outside of the gym or the touch football game!

And as the warmer times come around, we are always yearning to whip out a leather jacket! It doesn’t matter what the style, a leather is a leather, and goes with everything. We have the perfect weather right now to sport a leather jacket, so take advantage (and look fab doing so)! And no look is complete without a leather, or sass 😉

Leather has also of course been taken up in many other garments, like hats and bottoms. I just purchased a pair of leather shorts in an athletic cut, which blends sporty with its edgy look. They are also definitely not an item to be missed (guys, and girls of course), so check those out for the spring & summer seasons!
