Trend Forecast: Spring 2015

Tori Delhagen, Junior

It has been a long, long, loooong winter thanks to Punxsutawney Phil once again seeing his shadow. Many of us are not sorry to soon wave goodbye to winter and say hello to spring. But before the snow finally begins to melt and the temperatures rise, it’s important to transform your wardrobe for the new season. As this season approaches, there are a few new trends to look out for. Here’s to warm weather, pastels, spring cleaning, and a new beginning to your fashion wardrobe.

 

Baby(doll) Got Back

It’s old news that the 90’s have made a raging comeback in the market, which is great news for us 90's kids (sorry, 2018). For the past year, 90's fashion has been consistently featured on our 21st century streets in the form of those oh-so-charming mom jeans, overalls, and crop tops. So what's up next from the decade that just won't die? Well, spring 2015 is bringing back those baby doll dresses. Get ready to say goodbye to ice (Ice, Baby... get it???) because with the right amount of lace and frill this spring, you’ll be ready to take on the heat.

Make like Corbin Bleu and Keke Palmer, and Jump In to spring 2015

If you’re not very daring in your wardrobe, a jumpsuit may seem intimidating to pull off. Although the jumpsuit became popular in 2014, it is still a hit this year.

Jumpsuits are a perfectly achievable look for anyone to wear. With jumpsuits being one piece, you’ll never have to worry about matching your top with your bottoms (which means less work... c'mon, I don’t think it can get much better than that). And jumpsuits are super versatile-- they can be edgy with bold heels or feminine with the slightest girly touch. Designers such as Dior and Ralph Lauren have jumpsuits on the runway paired with belts, scarves and bold jewelry. If you’re still not convinced that jumpsuits are in, actress and style icon Emma Watson was spotted sporting a stunning white jumpsuit at the British Fashion Awards in December. And, as we all know, Emma Watson does no wrong.

See, I told you that "shirt" was a dress, MOM.

Another just as wearable option this season is the shirtdress. It is so easy and flattering. If you're unfamiliar with the trend, a shirtdress is a pretty tricky concept to grasp, so bear with me while I walk you through it: a shirtdress is basically an oversized shirt worn as a dress. Earth-shattering, I know. Although shirtdresses are meant to be slouchy, they can be paired with a belt to give you more shape and pull the outfit together. 

Disclaimer: Make sure your shirtdress is actually a certified shirtdress, and not just a baggy shirt that's a size too big. As iconic as it might be, Buzz Mag is not responsible for any Marilyn Monroe moments gone wrong thanks to a particularly strong gust of wind.

Speaking of dresses... White and gold?

As far as colors go this spring, you can't go wrong with all white everything. As long as you style the outfit right, you can never have too much white. The color yellow has also made it on Glamour’s 2015 wearable fashion trends. And, okay, so maybe it's not exactly gold, but yellow has been seen all over the runway, as seen on the model below walking the runway at Michael Kors during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015. Although yellow can be hard to style, it can be the perfect burst of color.

The new year means a fresh start to be the best you can be. Whether that be hitting the gym, working harder in school or making, changes in your wardrobe, now is the best time to do it. While you’re doing your spring cleaning, make sure to add some new pieces in your wardrobe and never fear to be a little bold.
