Bring on spring!! Don't get me wrong, I love my winter moments. Bundling up in endless layers, sipping on a hot latte-- but basking in the sun and strappy kitten heels are my secret love language.
The whole atmosphere of spring is unbeatable in my book. Picnics, flowers, iced lattes that are actually refreshing and not freezing my fingers off, light layers, strappy shoes, and a glimmer of summer? It just feels so "Romeo/Juliet" romantic without the drama.
01 - Pops of Color
This spring, bright colors are stealing the show. In accessories, in bold statement pieces, and especially in green, blue, and orange.
Electric Green/ Forest Green.
02 - Low n' baggy
Listen, I don't always agree with the trend -- but I think it deserves a chance. Think a low rise but with a certain bagginess that gives your waist a snatch effect.
Don't stress, it's nowhere near the 00s' quarter-inch low-rise zip that we all fear.
03 - Low n' flow
On the same rising trend of the low-rise, we have low-rise flows skirts. Most I've seen have been ankle or maxi, but there's been a sprinkle of mid-calf here and there-- and I have to say it does not disappoint with a fitted tee, crop top, or bra top.
04 - The return of the Micro
First came the mini-- and now the micro. NYFW runways brought a lot smaller than mini. I predict a surge of micros coming our way.
05 - Tall Boots, babyyy
And following micros, is one of my favorite shoes to pair with-- tall boots. It feels so 70s go-go but modern and balances the micro with the *perfect* amount of leg.
06 - Moody Chic
90s grunge meets the "clean girl" aesthetic. Giving us this effortless chicness of a femme fatale 'fit. It's like a 2-for-1 deal where both sides get to come out and play.
07 - Platforms
We're all about to have our tall-girl era. Platforms are everywhere; sandals, sneakers, boots, heels, etc! I'm ready to channel my inner Bratz Doll and strut around.
08 - TY, Jen An
Boob is back! Thank you, Jenifer Aniston, Kendall Jenner, and all of those who participated and paved the way for the return of the bra-less era. Big, small, we love to see 'em all.
The controversial trend of the 90s is nipping its way into the 20s. While we've seen more gals out and about for quite some time, it's picked up some recent traction from Kendal Jenner to Dua Lipa, even branching out into the influencer world. We're talking ultra sheer, fitted, loose, from the side, etc -- the tatas are out and ready to play.
*As of 1/17/2023, Facebook and Instagram lifted the ban on bare breasts on their platforms.*
I've always been a big supporter of the braless aesthetic, and I always will. It's such a boost of confidence, self-love, freedom and femininity that certain things can't replace.
09 - Bra tops
When we're not, not wearing a bra, we're wearing bras as tops. I'm thinking a bra with low-rise jeans or a maxi skirt would just be muah *chef's kiss*. Throw a blazer or a moto over and there you have it. A femme and bold look.
