The Spring Trend Checklist: 10 Stylish Trends to Try

We're days away from it officially being spring! And lucky you if it feels like it where you live! ;) I'm hoping the weather begins to get the hint that spring is coming and warms up ASAP, because with all of these stylish spring trends for 2018, I'm ready for some cute clothes! Spring fashion is in full force everywhere you look and these 10 fun trends are ones you have to add to your wardrobe this season:

1. Straw Accessories

I love that all sorts of straw bags, shoes and accessories are so trendy and "in" right now! There's a style for everyone's taste and there's so much more than just straw beach bags. And I know I'll be packing for summer vacations around these fun straw accessories all summer! ;)

2. Pretty Pastels

Nothing quite screams "spring" like some bright and colorful pastel buys! These pastel shades often make the trend lists each spring, but we're seeing lots of shades of pretty pastels this year and I am all about it:

3. Bright Florals

If a pattern makes you smile, you know it's a good one. Now more than ever, floral prints are all the rage! I think the best part about it is there's so many different floral prints out there so there's something for everyone to appreciate and love to pull out of their closets this season.

4. Shades of Yellow

Now I know yellow isn't for everyone - it really never has been for me either! It's one of those "hit or miss" colors where the shade is everything, but it's everywhere this season and the more I see it and the more styles I see it in, the more I want to learn to love it! It definitely has everything to do with your skin tone and what shade of yellow you choose but it's definitely worth a shot this season, here's some of the cutest I've seen so far:

5. Gingham

Gimme all the gingham! Any store you walk into (or sign onto if you're shopping online, lol!) you'll see tons of gingham prints like these:

6. Polka Dots

'70s style is back and so is polka dots!! It brings back so many memories of when I was little because I remember loving polka dots when I was younger and Limited Too was where it was AT! It's back and classier than ever!

7. Preppy Pinstripes

As a die hard New York Yankees fan, I think this has to be my favorite trend yet. This is another one you see a lot of in almost any store you walk into - my favorite is the light blue and white pinstripes that gives such a pretty, preppy and chic look for spring:

8. White Handbags

This is by no means a new trend, but there's so many new styles out there this season that's bringing white alll the way back! You can never go wrong with a white handbag that you can use all spring and all summer long. These beautiful buys are great to add to your shopping list:

9. Eye-Catching Eyelet

Something about a white eyelet top with flutter sleeves just screams spring! There's no shortage of this pretty, almost lace-like detailing for spring 2018!

10. Circle Bags

I am ALL about this circle bag trend!! A lot of the most popular circle bags so far have been straw ones so it does kind of overlap, but there's a ton of bright colored bags that you need to see too:

Out of all of these exciting spring trends, here's what's in my cart (or already in my closet!) for the spring, and what you absolutely need to add to your spring wardrobe:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

There's been no shortage of straw circle bags this season, but this one is only $29! It's the cheapest I've found and still super cute. This cute floral romper (#3) is the one featured above, and it's so super cute - the ruffles make it so fun and it's great to have as the weather begins to warm up!

What's your favorite spring 2018 trend?


  1. So nice outfits! :) I am waiting for cleaning my closet, so I can recycle some clothes and get some new for spring or summer.

  4. Polka dots and pinstripe are so me! I remember getting a hand me down Limited Too polka dot skirt that I wore until I literally could not get it to zip at all anymore. It was a sad day when I passed it on to a friend. I love the vintage-y modern looks.

  5. I'm suchhh a fan of straw hats and accessories!! also LOVE those fun bright sneakers you picked out with the florals! how fun!!

  19. Yay for Spring! Loving all your picks, especially the florals, which are on-trend every "season" where I live. Aloha!

  21. I can not wait to wear straw hats and straw pumps. Florals are also on my wishlist. Great suggestions xo

  23. My favorite trend definitely has to be the yellow! I love how the color looks on me!

  24. And this is why Spring is my favorite! So many pretty patterns and colors!

  25. I love yellow for spring! It's such a happy color, especially right after all the cold, winter weather. I just can't wear it, so I'm living vicariously through everyone who CAN pull it off!
