Fashion File: Spring Trends

Last week I talked about Spring essentials, but this week let’s talk about Spring trends and all the styles and pieces that are going strong for the season.

1. OFF-SHOULDER: If there’s one kind of top you should definitely be picking up for the warmer days is an off-shoulder one. This is the perfect sexy meets sweet style that you won’t get enough of!

3. SUEDE: If you ask me, the top three fabrics you should have in your closet for this Spring and Summer are eyelet, denim and suede. If you feel you’ll get hot in this fabric don’t fret!! There are so many great options in faux versions that you’ll love! I’m particularly smitten with this Talula Morton Jacket  and these Wayf Faux Suede Shorts!
