One of my favorite activities to do is research upcoming trends to stay on top of the fashion world. The trends I will be sharing with you all are a mix of my predictions and what I have pulled together from runway shows and online articles. I have placed the trends in order of what I believe are the most prominent and important trends to know this upcoming spring/summer season.

Saturated Colors: Think of a box of crayola crayons. Now think about what the colors look like in a typical box. Well, color is going to be huge this season, not just any color though, bright colors like blues, greens, reds, and yellows. In my opinion, the best trendy way to wear bright colors is to pair them together. What I mean by this is wearing red on red or blue on blue, it will really make your look different and make you stand out.

Americana: Who doesn't LOVE to show some American pride? This season it's time to bring out the red/blue and stars/stripes. There are so many fun ways to pair these colors together like wearing a sheer red shirt with a denim skirt. Stars will be found on shorts, shoes, and even earrings but are a great way to add spice to your outfit. Stripes will also be found on pants, blazers, etc to give an outfit some extra flare.

Tassel Earrings: Tassel earrings can be preppy but fear not! These can go with any style this season and add a statement to an outfit. I recommend wearing them with a dainty necklace and jumpsuit.

Mixed Prints: This is one of the coolest trends I saw on the runway this season. I'm talking about mixing florals and polka dots, stripes and stars, but on ONE item of clothing. The pants in the picture below incorporate polka dots and flowers, in a subtle, contemporary way.

Ruffles: Ruffles add a feminine touch to any outfit and look so cute paired with even more ruffles or masculine pieces.

Funky Sunglasses: Sunglasses are always a hot trend to stay on top of! Small shades are this seasons style and especially ones with colored frames and black lenses. 

Denim on Denim: Denim never dies! This season, pair denim jeans with a jean jacket for a fresh, trendy look.

Fanny Packs: It's music festival season! That means lots of fanny packs will be coming out as they are easy to carry around and keep your belongings safe anywhere you go. 

Jumpsuits: Even though the jumpsuit trend started a couple years ago, they have grown rapidly as a closet necessity. They are easy to throw on and can be dressed up with heels for going out or dressed down with some sneakers for a casual look.

Solid-Color Wedges: Wedges that are all one color are the new in sandal style for the summer. Wedges are comfortable and can be paired perfectly with a pair of fun boyfriend jeans or flowy pants for a more beauty look.

These are all of my favorite trends for spring and summer of 2018! Let's rock them together and make sure to check out my latest YouTube video showcasing all of the trends.
