You have to shop around and compare the best deals, go to thrift stores, and do those extra steps to ensure you’re getting the bargain.

It would look great with some booties or boots for a casual school/work look, with a denim jacket over it.

 

LAVENDER

This color is the epitome of spring for me.

I absolutely love pastel colors, don’t you?

Lavender colored the runways this season –

It’s one trend that I can stand behind.

Breezy and light, it can be worn in chillier weather with layers, or by itself when it starts getting warm.

DARK DENIM

Dark denim hit the runways this spring, and is trying to let us know that denim on denim is okay.

It’s even more than okay –

It’s encouraged.

The key to the denim-on-denim look is having varying shades of denim.

This is where the dark look comes into play –

Let’s begin with dark denim pants.

These ones from H&M are affordable, don’t look like your average jean, and look comfy AF.

TASSEL EARRINGS

This trend has been huge for the past 6 months, and doesn’t show any signs of going away.

I’ve noticed that these earrings look great on most people –

And they add an element of stylishness to any outfit.

Minimal effort for maximum style.

I’m a big fan (no pun intended) of these fan-style tassel earrings.

They look especially great with curled hair and minimal makeup.

Make sure your colors don’t clash, because these earrings usually are a bright color.

These earrings from H&M are the typical tassel style.

See what I mean about bright colors?

These would look amazing with a white spring dress.

 

X-MEN STYLE SUNGLASSES

You know the ones I’m talking about –

The sunnies that look kind of space-y, kind of cat-eye?

This style is taking over –

I’ve been seeing them all over Instagram, magazines, you name it.

These ones from Forever 21 have that rimless look, and are a skinny cat-eye.

They look very X-Men to me.

If you want more of a retro vibe, take a look at these from Forever 21.

These have a white rim and a very narrow shape.

 

RETRO SPORTY

Activewear was one of my favorite trends last year, and it’s here to stay.

This spring, the trend is updated with more jackets and more vintage sporty items.

Think 80’s or 90’s sporty looks.

This classic tee from Adidas is the ideal tee for this trend –

It’s updated with a gold foil design and can still be worn with your favorite jogger.

To layer, grab an anorak jacket.

There were bright colors and different styles.
