This year’s Spring Style Guide is significantly different than last year’s for many reasons, and we couldn’t be happier about that. 12 months ago we were confused and completely oblivious as to where the year would bring us, but now that we are approaching a light at the end of the tunnel, our style is too. Don’t get us wrong, nobody expects you to jump right into full-on formal-wear after wearing sweatpants all year, but we’re spicing it up and providing something for everyone this time around.
The Neutral Color Palette
Let’s start with your spring color palette, because it’s not business as usual–which means you don’t have to worry about filling your wardrobe with florals because it’s all about neutrals this season. You can take that however you want to: dark neutrals, light neutrals, brown, chocolate, etc. So don’t start freaking out when you start seeing neutrals take over the fashion game. For the record, we’re totally on board with this.
Mono B: We LIVE in this neutral, half-zip, long sleeve crop by Mono B. It’s a go-to piece when we pair our Mono B light-neutral joggers with it, which are one of the most comfortable, high-waisted, flattering joggers you will ever wear in your life. When was the last time you saw flattering joggers that compliment your curves in all the right places? Oh, and… they have pockets.

Numi: When wearing anything with an extreme high-waist, you’ll want to pair it with a slim-fitting crop top that is made for any body type, which is what Wear Numi strives for–something for every body type. And–shocker–our favorite Wear Numi top is their off-the-shoulder brown crop top because of its versatility. Dress it up or dress it down with your favorite leggings or joggers, that’s the beauty of it!

Swim into Spring
What’s a Spring Style Guide without the latest swimwear trends of the season? This is where SWIMINSTA, our favorite new swimwear company, comes in. As a serial mom-preneuer, you will want to celebrate and get behind the new line from Andréa Bernholtz, who also happens to be known for co-founding the luxury collection Rock & Republic.
There are many reasons to love this swimwear. It’s flattering, eco-conscious, sexy, and supportive, with pieces that are made for movement with adjustable, personalized fits that come in sizes from A to DDD. In addition to those benefits, SWIMINSTA has a discrete “Try At Home” option, so shoppers can choose a selection of suits to try and decide which to keep and send back the rest. Do you know any other swimwear company that offers something like that? We need more of these options in our life. Lindsey rocked this sexy number to the beach AND played beach volleyball in it. It’s wearable and supportive for any occasion or mood you’re in this spring.

Slip into Something More Comfortable
Have you ever had such an appreciation for house slippers until being in quarantine? Chances are, you’ve worn yours down to their last thread and it’s time for a new pair because your feet aren’t being supported around the house. After seeing Terrelique Premium House Slippers on Instagram, we knew we had to have them. Do they slightly resemble shower slippers you wore to the bathroom in your dorm room in college? Sort of. But, they are SO much more than that. These premium indoor slippers feel so nice against your feet as you walk around the house because they’re built to keep your feet active and comfortable at the same time. The comfort level is state-of-the-art and something you’ll never be able to live without again. And let’s not take away from the fact that they come in the perfect neutral color to match everything else you’ll be buying this season. Are we seeing a trend here?

If you’re looking for more of a traditional slipper, Bearpaw is the answer. These cozy and stylish slippers are one of the trendiest slippers in the game because of their criss-cross shape in the front, material built for cozy comfort, and blush color-tone. This shape was made popular in lockdown as demand for slippers went up, and our favorites, the Women’s Brielle Slippers, are only $19.99. These fuzzy slippers add a little extra love to your feet as they’re completely wrapped in faux fur from the upper to the lining of the footbed. These bring the word cozy to another level and are the perfect gift for Mother’s Day–which is closer than you think!

The Wide Flares
We would NEVER tell you to throw away your skinny jeans, but Gen Z might have gotten something right when it comes to spring trends this season: the “wide boot-leg.” But we can’t give them too much credit for “trend forecasting,” because we know history repeats itself when it comes to style–and this look has been around for generations. Rest assured, we’re here to help you embrace this trend and actually like the way it looks on you. The key is to look for the “Slim Fit” option, because it won’t give you the “frumpy” look we all fear if we plan on going all-in on this. A slim-fit brings a sleek look that pairs nicely with heeled ankle booties, and will fit and compliment you in all the right places. Mark our worlds, boot-cut denim will be the most popular style you see this spring, but it’s all about how you style it.

These Boots Are Made for Walking…
Speaking of boots, just because we’re in Florida, we aren’t left out of boot trends! We still don’t want to be too hot, so ankle booties are highly encouraged, but if you’re traveling to a colder climate, we encourage you to go all-in on the white boot trend. Is anyone else getting gogo dancer vibes? Like we said, history repeats itself… especially in the fashion community.
White High Knee Boots are great because they’re extremely versatile and can go with so much that already exists in your closet. You can do a lot with these boots by wearing them with a patterned mini or midi dress, a fun pair of leggings, or opt-in for a slouchy boot style if you want to go effortless but still add a sleek sexy touch.

We hope this article brought you a little something of everything for what to wear this spring especially since we’re still in this “weird times” transitional phase. It’s was important for us to bring you sustainable options that are “on-trend,” but will also compliment your new wardrobe and lifestyle!
