Time to put those winter coats back in storage! Spring Break is upon us, and it’s time to get hip with the latest trends for this glamorous week. Stop by the outlet mall on the way to the airport and grab these styles before you head out on your trip!
1. The Y2K Look
The early 2000s were defined by styles with bright colors, bold patterns, and tie-up halter tops. This Spring Break, embrace the 2000s with some flare jeans, tightly-braided hair, and pastels. If you weren’t around to experience the Y2K look yourself, make sure to pair a lot of crop tops with oversized cardigans, wear low-slung jeans (flare optional), and go for soft, fuzzy pink shades on just about everything.
There is a lot of freedom in this look, and you can style it up or down depending on the occasion. A few Y2K-inspired pieces are the perfect addition to your Spring Break look book.
2. Green Shoes and Accessories
For some reason, green is everywhere this year. Green shoes, scarves, gloves, and other accessories are really pushing it to the next level this spring. Choose a chunky knit cardigan in a lovely green color, or go shopping for some neon green heels. Green swimsuits are also in – including suits with large tropical leaves and flowers. You’ll be good to go with green this spring break, so pick up some of your greenest accessories before you go.
3. Neon Color Variations
Even if you aren’t a fan of green, go with neon pinks, yellows, and other bright, vibrant colors. Neon colors are going to be everywhere throughout the spring and summer, so now is the time to jump on this trend. Make sure to choose neon colors with more neutral options. Black and white go with just about anything, but greys can be great as well!
4. Gender Neutral Cuts
It looks like 2022 will be a big year for gender-neutral cuts. Look for more styles that appeal for all genders, such as button-ups, oversized t-shirts, and jeans that don’t emphasize the shape of your hips. These styles are still being fine-tuned as we go into the summer, but you can always get a head start. To match other trends, try a neon button-up with white or cream pants and some neon green shows. Everyone else will be struggling to keep up!
5. Slip Dresses
Slip dresses are comfortable, flowing dresses that resemble slips worn in years past. These dresses are extremely wearable, and you’ll love throwing them on under a blazer or chunky knit sweater. On your vacation, these dresses can be some nice casualwear, and you can dress them up for a dinner out as well.
6. Saturated Tie Dyes
It’s been a while since tie dye was fully in style, but this spring it’s coming back in a big way. Instead of looking at tie-dye shirts, however, you should set your signs on tie-dye patterned dresses, overshirts, and more. Instead of choosing neon or bright colors here, you’ll want to go with highly-saturated jewel tones in big, bold splashes. It’s a modern twist on an old favorite!
7. Floral Mini Dresses
Mini dresses are having a moment, and spring break is the best time to take advantage of them! Choose a flowing, floral mini sundress for best effect. If it’s a little chilly, pair it with a light-colored denim jacket. Grab a big sunhat and oversized sunglasses to really complete the look. This mix of casual and classy is sure to make you shine on your spring break vacation.
8. Swimsuit Wraps
Don’t forget a wrap or cover-up for your swimsuit! This year, crochet and knit items are still some of the biggest options in town. Grab a lacey crochet cover-up or a knit wrap to keep with you on the beach. You’ll enjoy having some way to cover up when it’s time to get out of the water.
