With Spring just a week away it’s time to talk trends. This season, I’m rounding up the 10 most wearable trends from fashion week. Every Thursday, I’ll be doing a video showing different ideas on how to wear the trends at home. You can subscribe to my channel to watch them first! I’ll also be posting them along with affordable shopping options on the blog. Here are the ten trends we’ll be covering in the Sydne Style Spring Trend Guide…
#1 Spring Bomber Jackets

A bomber jacket is a great transitional piece. You can wear it over sweaters when it’s still cool out. Then throw it on over a camisole and jeans for spring nights. I love how the jackets gave an athletic vibe to girly dresses and skirts on the runway.
#2 Floral Dresses
(Tadashi Shoji, Nicole Miller, Jason Wu)
Florals for spring certainly aren’t new. But they were everywhere! And there are flower prints for every type of fashionista. You can go feminine with embroidery, edgy with floral designs on netting or artistic with watercolor flowers.
#3 White Shirt Refresh
(Monse, Zac Posen, Delpozo)
This season the timeless white shirt is getting a refresh. Designers showed the button down worn off the shoulder, tied up into a bustier and even cut into a skirt. It’s all about reworking the classic staple.
#4 Lingerie Inspired
(Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Balenciaga)
Designer were heavily influenced by the bedroom for Spring. To get the look, you can try a pajama pant with a tank, a pajama skirt with jeans or even a silky robe worn as a jacket. But my favorite way to wear the trend is with the slip dress. It has a ’90s minimalist vibe, simple yet sexy.
#5 Cold Shoulders
(Milly, Proenza Schouler, Preen)
It’s all about the shoulders for Spring. Basically anything is in from off the shoulder to strapless. But a major trend is the cold shoulder, which are basically cutouts on sleeves. It’s a great to show just a slip of skin.
(Boss, Valentino, Proenza Schouler)
From dresses and top to skirt and pants, there were pleats all over the runway. My favorite way to wear the trend is with a micro pleat, to create a soft volume in spring dresses and skirts.
(Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Reem Acra)
Stripes are lining up in every direction for spring… and in every color, too! You can go classic nautical with blue and white or taste the rainbow in a multitude of colors. I love using stripes to my advantage. While vertical stripes elongate the figure, diagonal stripes create the illusion of curves.
#8 Tie Dye
(Altuzarra, BCBG, Thakoon)
Thanks to everything old being new again, tie dye has made a comeback. The retro print is fun in a sun dress but can also be sophisticated when worn on sleeker silhouettes.
(Balmain, Alexander McQueen, Michael Kors)
There are a bunch of trends for spring that include ruffles. One is Spanish influence: think about the red dress emoji! Another is the Victorian trend, which is continuing from fall. However you wear it, ruffles are a fun way to add movement and drama to your look.
(Alexander Wang, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein)
Thanks to the athleisure trend continuing to be oh so popular, sneakers were one of the biggest shoe trends on the spring runways. I love how designers paired kicks with dresses for a sporty vibe.
