Welcome Spring. We’ve been waiting for you. Finally time to trade in your snow boots for sandals, and if you’re trapped in the latest East Coast freeze, maybe just keep the boots nearby and handy. A lot of exciting things are walking down the runway and Find&Save knows just where to get them all. Here are five of the biggest trends to look for this spring.
Hip to be Square
This is my personal favorite trend this season because geometric prints never seem to go out of style. Get your color fix and find something bright with the pattern in white. Don’t try to wear too many prints at once, choose your piece and keep everything else in your outfit fairly neutral. Throw your hair up in a high bun and you might just be mistaken for the hottest new fashion designer out on her lunch break.

Great White Attack
What goes well with white? Answer: more white. This is one of the hottest trends on the runway. Head to toe white gives you the clean modern look that everyone is trying this spring. White pants are having their moment right now and bonus points for wide leg leisurely-looking pants. If the stark white is too much for your taste, soften it up by adding a lace into the mix or a laser cut pattern. The white will bring out the natural colors in your face, so play up your lips with a red or coral lipstick.

Big bold black and white prints are still running strong. Try something knee length or floor length to use this high contrast pattern to its full potential. Keep your hair simple and your make up fresh and light. You may be borrowing colors from the zebra, but black and white prints will ensure you’ll stand out from the herd.

And what would be spring fashion without the flowers. Florals are a given for the spring, but try them in chiffon for an extra breezy look. Also try floral prints where you wouldn’t really expect it: shoes, shorts, purses, pants, etc. Flowers are no longer limited to just dresses and skirts.

Pastel’s Never Passé
Here’s another typical spring staple. Find solid colored pastel pieces and throw all together in the same outfit. Lavender, pale orange, and baby blue? Why not? Mix and match to your heart’s content. Nothing dames spring like just the palest pop of color.
