What to Wear This Spring

Spring has sprung!  Update your wardrobe with these wearable spring fashion trends.

Spring Fashion Trends 2016 that you will actually want to wear/ Running in a Skirt

Hi everyone!

I’m doing a little happy dance about the arrival of spring on Sunday.  This is my absolute favorite time of the year.

Since I consider myself a wannabe fashionista, I try to keep up to date with current fashion trends.  It’s so pretty to look at what is on the runway each season. Let’s be honest though, some of the stuff on the runway just doesn’t work in real small town life.  Even if you life in a fancy city, you probably can’t and don’t want to actually wear most of that stuff.  So I like to search the styles and shops to find which trendy looks are actually attainable and wearable for the new season.

This is what I’ve come up with for Spring 2016.  Happy Shopping!

What to Wear Spring 2016

Front Button Denim Skirts

If you are looking for a quick update, consider one of these front button denim skirts.  They are the it skirt of the year!  You’ll be able to use this year-round.

H&M Denim Skirt or BCBG Generation Denim Skirt

Off the Shoulder Tops

I’m hoping to get one of these off the shoulder tops soon.  They are super cute and such a fresh look for this year.  Some of the tops are a bit over the top, but these looks are balanced and cute.

Nordstom Rack <— need this in my life

Vince Camuto <—Such a classy way to pull this look off!

Urban Outfitters


Yellow is once again the it color of spring.  I love it in a cardigan this year.  I found three similar options for you at different price points.

JCrew Jackie Cardigan, Also available at JCrew Factory HERE.  Budget find at LOFT.<–less than$25


The runway had all sorts of romantic looks this spring.  From lacy 90’s inspired slip dresses, Victorian button ups and lace the looks were love inspired.

Dillard’s, budget version at H&M HERE.

Nordstom, Lace Detail Dress <—less than $90


Asos Romper <— I can’t get enough of this romper.  Someone should buy it 🙂

Lace Up Flats

These lace up flats are going to be big this season.  I love how they are ballet inspired.  I found a couple different options at different price points for you.  Lots of color options are available.

Steve Madden, also available at BP at Nordrom

  1. Love those flats! I used to work at a woman’s shoe store and the only thing I truly miss is the deep discounts on Steve Madden ahah

    I am a fan of all of these trends you posted. Love the embroidered dress, and love the cold shoulder tops, especialy with the straps so you dont worry about the top being too low. I love lace up flats , just dont own any. I should correct that!
    Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads tuesday

    I’m looking for a dress for graduation right now–I was eyeing that blue lace dress! 😛

    Love that blue dress and blue vince camuto top!!! Thanks for the fashion update – I need some new items in my wardrobe!

    I’ve always wanted to own some off-the-shoulder stuff. Maybe this will be the year I try it!

    LOVE that blue off the shoulder shirt! It’s so classy but yet fun!

  7. I love spring clothes, but I feel like a lot of late 80’s early 90’s trends are coming back which scares me a bit, lol. Is big hair going to come back too? 😉 Hope you are doing well!!

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2016 at 11:13 am - Reply

      I hope not! The punk styles of the 80s are certainly back! I can’t believe the grunge-like flannel tied around the waste is back…. wow!

    I certainly enjoy spring too. One thing I especially like
    about living here is that we have 4 distinct seasons.
    I will be celebrating my dad’s birthday this Sunday
    with my family. Hope you have a nice weekend
    despite that it will be ironically turning much cooler.

      It is nice to have such pretty seasons. Hope you are staying warm today.

    I love the off the shoulder trend this season, so fun for summer!

    Love, love, love all the off-the-shoulder tops, but especially that gorgeous drapey blue one from Vince Camuto.Is wearing cute, strappy bras with them a no-no?

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2016 at 11:10 am - Reply

      I think if the straps were cute enough and didn’t look too bra like– intentional really, it could work! They make a lot of bras these days for that purpose 🙂

    off the shoulder is definitely in! Loving the looks!

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2016 at 11:09 am - Reply

      Thanks MB! I love the look too. Hope you are having a nice weekend.

    Love that front button denim skirt!! And yellow is my favorite color, so I’m especially stoked to see that it’s trending!

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2016 at 11:08 am - Reply

      I want that denim skirt too. Not that I don’t already have enough of them…. haha 🙂

    Ya know… I thought spring had arrived in NYC, but it’s supposed to snow this Sunday! What the heck?! The second it gets nice for good, I’m getting myself that blue lacey dress, though!

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2016 at 11:08 am - Reply

      Doh! Hope you are staying warm this weekend. And that dress would look fabulous on you.

    Cute clothes! I love off the should tops, but wearing a strapless bra sometimes can be pain.

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2016 at 11:03 am - Reply

      SO true. They are a lot more comfortable than they used to be though!

    I’ll have to get back to you in just a few weeks. 😉 I haven’t seen my real wardrobe in many months, and I’m excited to pull everything out again!
