As we eagerly await the day we can retire our winter wardrobe for the season, we love looking forward to all the spring fashion trends that lie ahead! And this year, spring fashion encompass everything we love about spring – pastels, bright colors, and fun prints like florals and paisley – and a whole slew of styles that we didn’t realize how much we’d love until we saw them in our stores.

From sweet, feminine styles to structured, utilitarian looks, spring’s biggest trends have something for everyone. Scroll down to see the five trends we can’t wait to add into our wardrobe rotation this season, and learn our tips for incorporating them into your own!

Earthy Tones

We were excited to see earthy tones like olive, tan, and ivory standing their ground as the must-have neutrals in spring’s color palette. In addition to these neutrals making a reliable foundation for pairing with some of the bolder colors trending this spring like red and hot pink, they can also create soft, springtime looks all on their own.

To dress head to toe in earthy tones this spring, try a jumpsuit in olive or navy, then finish off the look with ivory or tan slides and a panama hat.

Feminine Frills

With feathers, fringe, and ruching all staking out spots on spring’s list of top trends, it’s clear that detailing is stealing the spotlight this spring. One of our favorite hemline details we keep spotting in our stores: frills. Ruffles’ more subdued counterpart, frills are a feminine touch that we’ve seen dressing up t-shirt sleeves, midi-dress hemlines, and tank top necklines this season.

Go all into this girly trend with a frill-trimmed, floral dress. Then contrast the softness of this look with a pair of metallic slides, with metallic being another trend you’re sure to see a lot of this spring.

Bright + Bold

With tie-dye, color blocking, and neon being three of spring’s biggest trends, it’s no wonder that the hottest colors this spring are bright, bold, and daring. Some of the top colors we’ve been seeing in our stores are red, pink, and every shade of yellow under the sun, and while these bright hues can be easily paired with neutral tones for a balanced look, we’re all about mixing bold shades this spring.

Dive into the bright and bold trend with a full-length maxi dress or jumpsuit, or mix together two bold colors like lavender and yellow for a contrasting look.

Utility Styles

Function meets fashion in spring’s most comfortable trend. Cargo pants, utility jackets, and boiler suits are just a few of the pieces that are making waves as part of this bold, yet practical utilitarian look.

Jump right in with a khaki jumpsuit or full boiler suit, or ease into the utility trend with just a single piece, like a jacket or pants. But whether you go all in or just scratch the surface, try adding our go-to touch of feminine flair: a bold, red lip.

Find this utility jacket at Evereve.


From tanks to totes, artisanal detailing is appearing in spring styles of all kinds throughout tons of our stores. Reminiscent of the beach and 1970’s fashion, crochet and macramé designs are making a comeback just in time for the warmer weather.

We love this spring trend for how well it lends itself to chilly Midwestern spring days. This chic, knit style that transitions well between temperatures makes crochet a can’t-miss trend for spring.

Try your hand at a variety of crochet styles. Layer an open-weave cardigan over a pastel dress for a sweet, springtime look, or go for something a little more structured like a crochet tank accessorized with bold jewelry.

Find this tank at francesca’s.
