This spring season has been sooooooo cold! It feels like winter! I am so used to March starting to offer with warmer weather, and opportunities to wear skirts, dresses, and shorts! This year has been really cold, so I have been living in jeans and lightweight jackets to get through the chill.
Military jackets are an ongoing trend which fades in and out of fashion every year. This year the military green jacket is very en vogue; so there are tons of cute ones on the market! When I spotted this version of a spring military jacket, I instantly fell in love with the 3/4 sleeves, and relaxed silhouette. It is so comfortable!
Spring 2018 is almost here! In the fashion world, it’s in full swing! This means we all need to get our closets in order before we head out to the malls and start shopping. The last thing we want to do is buy something we already own. Um, yes, I’ve done that before; so, I want to make sure you don’t make my mistake!
There are a few trends this spring 2018 season we can find inside our closets. This is good news because it means we can all save a little bit of money when shopping for the spring season. Yay! It’s almost like free clothing! Well. . .almost. . .
Many trends from last spring, and the spring before, are back in style. So, let’s dive into our closets and shop until we drop!
Pointy Toe Pumps
You know you have at least one pair stuffed in the back of your closet! Pointy toe pumps are hotter then hot this spring 2018 season, so dust off those pointed toes and bring them front and center. They are your IT shoe of the season. Love that!
Cult Gaia Ark Bag
Did you buy a Cult Gaia Ark bag last year? If so, fabulous! It’s still a hot bag to wear this year. Also, since circles, bamboo, and straw, are all hotter then hot in the handbag world for the spring 2018 season, the Cult Gaia Ark bag fits in perfectly. It’s a half circle, and it’s bamboo; perfection!
OMG! So groundbreaking, right?! You know you have something with a floral print somewhere in your closet, or stuffed in the back of that drawer you never open. Pull it out, iron it, and hang it front and center in your closet. Florals are hotter then hot for spring. Who knew?! Haha 😉
OK, you might not have yellow in your closet, but then again, maybe you do? Yellow has always been around, and it started to become popular last year. So, perhaps you have one yellow item floating around somewhere in your closet. Or, maybe a couple of years ago you jumped on the yellow handbag trend. Fabulous! Pull it out, and wear it often. Yellow is anything but mellow this season!
As you know, Ultra Violet is the color of 2018. It is extremely similar to 2014’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid. Chances are, you have something purple from 2014 hanging in the back of your closet; or perhaps a fabulous purple handbag sits in your archives. It’s time to bring it back to the front of your closet because purple is everything this year. Love!
White handbags are a huge trend this spring season. White handbags also happen to be a classic summer handbag color. There is a really good chance you own a white handbag. Dust it off, wear it often, and be fabulous.
Not a new trend at all, but the denim outline of the season no less. Keep those girlfriend jeans in the front of your denim drawer, they are the ultimate denim style this season. Don’t have a pair? No worries, put your boyfriend jeans in the dryer and voila! Shrunken boyfriend jeans equal a new pair of girlfriend jeans! Haha, No really, I’ve done it and it works.
Stripes were hot last year, and they continue to be hot this year. Wear all the stripes! Mix your stripes, or wear them stand-alone; either way, you will look fabulous.
You know you own one! It’s the ultimate jacket of the season. If you feel like it is too plain, add some sequins or bedazzle it with pearls; instant update! Love it!
You know those purple skinnies are still in the back of that drawer you never open. Bring them out, because colored skinnies are baaaaa-aaaaaack! Any color of jean is fabulous this season, so wear whatever you have, and you’re set!
Of course, there are many more trends this spring 2018 then what I have mentioned, but these are the easiest trends from past seasons to shop from your closet. Now that you have found what’s hot for spring in your closet, you can buy that circle bag you have been eyeing with all the money you saved! Love!
Just in case your closet is missing something:
What will you buy for spring now that you saved a ton of money and found most of your spring 2018 wardrobe in your closet?
Well, you know, I’m a sucker for anything blue! Chanel released four spring 2018 nail polish colors mid-season, and this new blue one caught my eye. It’s a light navy color, which fits perfectly into spring’s classic color palette.
Over the years, Chanel has released plenty of versions of navy blue nail polish. This isn’t a ground-breaking, or earth-shattering, color; but it is a really pretty navy blue. It isn’t a super dark navy, like Chanel typically releases in the fall season. Bleu Trompeur nail polish is a medium navy blue, which is lighter then other navy colors in Chanel’s nail polish line.
I tested out Chanel Bleu Trompeur nail polish for spring 2018 with one base coat, and two coats of color. I did not use a top coat. I have found that Chanel nail polish doesn’t really need a top coat anymore; since the release of their longwear collection a few years ago. Like with other Chanel colors, Bleu Trompeur is long lasting, and gave me a week before chipping. Love that!
If you are looking for a neutral yet non-conservative nail color this spring 2018 season, then Chanel Bleu Trompeur nail polish is for you! Navy is an easy color to wear with all color groups from the spring palette. Since Blue Trompeur isn’t a classic pink or red hue-yet it still acts like a neutral color while it gives off a playful, avant-garde vibe; which is a great way to to be neutral, without wearing a neutral. Love it!
You can find Chanel Bleu Trompeur nail polish for spring 2018 online here.
What do you think of this color for spring? Will you be rocking it? Or do you prefer more of a classic hue such as pink or red?
