People watching is always a grand activity and way to figure out what’s currently in style, as well as get inspired. Amy from Midtown Girl is here to talk about the street style she has spotted for the spring, and give you ideas of what you might want to include in your spring wardrobe. Be sure to check out her lifestyle editorial blog focused on dating, pop culture, fashion & style and New York City living.
The Spring season is in full bloom when it comes to street style looks – and I mean literally! Strong floral patterns are definitely a huge trend this Spring, worn in a variety of patterns and showcased in various statement pieces of an outfit. So pick one floral piece as your Spring statement for the day and be ready to use the city streets as your own personal runway!
Also seen in Spring street style trends are the pairing of ‘opposites’ within an outfit. The* pairing of ‘opposites’ consists of mixing & matching fabrics of different weights & textures*. So even if you decide to wear just one color (like black, in the street style pic below), it makes for a fabulous way to keep your Spring outfits looking fresh, fashion-forward and garner that coveted street style status.
What kind of shoes are fashionistas wearing for Spring? They have been spotted on the streets wearing wedges in bold colors, adding just the right touch of ‘zhuzh‘ to their outfits. Especially in NYC, a bright cheery wedge will lift & refresh an all black outfit into the current season.
In addition to wedges,* gladiator flats* have made their presence on the streets as well – here in gold leather – for that perfect pop of color & touch of glamour!
One of the most traditional looks for Spring include the classic & wardrobe staple – the trench coat. The trench is the perfect layering piece for Spring, as it can be worn short or long, sleeves rolled up or left down, collar popped or not. A trench is one piece that every *fabulush girl should have in their street style wardrobe – it is the key to *instant-chic!
Spring is all about color, combinations and an explosion of florals, so have fun with your street style looks – get dressed, get out, get noticed!
