By Claire

Spring is fast approaching, and it’s high time to start getting ready for warm weather with a host of fun trends. From mint colors to pastel palettes and neon flourishes, we’ve got what’s hot for spring, plus how to wear it and where to buy it!

How to Wear it:

Add some flavor to your wardrobe with a few key minty pieces (yum!). Whether you rock a sweater like Kanye, or a full on dress like June Ambrose, you can’t go wrong:

How to Wear it:

Color block with flair or throw a neon blazer over a black jumpsuit a la Lala. Though mixing with neutrals is surely safe, you truly have fun when you go neon on neon. Wear a bright pair of pants with a pink belt, or go the Nanette Lepore route mixing punchy green with bright orange.

How to wear it:

Layer your pastels with spunk–don’t be afraid to look like a chic easter egg. If you’re more demure, pair a baby blue blazer with jeans like Dwyane Wade:

How to Wear it:

How to wear it:

There really is no wrong way! Purchase a dress fit with its own peplum, or take a cue from Kerry with a peplumed blazer. Bonus: this style helps conceal pudgy tummies. Win/win:

    I’ve been a neon girl for the past 3 years, but I’m dying to get some mint pieces into my wardrobe. I went on the hunt for June’s dress today and they only had a size 2! I have a few vintage peplums that I love and pull out from time to time and I just ordered a tangerine dress last week. Spring, here I come!

  13. binks says:

    Love it all except peplums I just can’t see it working on a curvy figure without adding bulk :(

  14. Jaz says:

    Everything except the peplum. I cant see it working on my very bottom heavy figure, I get the sense that it would make my hips bigger

  15. mak says:

    i’m really feeling the peplum. gotta get shopping!

  16. krystel says:

    Love it all

  17. Tea Todd says:

    I love all these trends. Will I wear them? I don’t think so. But I really love the orange dress Jennifer rocked. I will try that look for sure. The peplum shirt I will not be rocking, already have hips don’t need to add to them.

  18. Lish says:

    I love all the trends. I own a pair of mint stone washed jeans from Forever 21 I paired it with a white tank and a loose fitting zebra cardigan.

    Today at work I went bright. I wore a bright teal pencil skirt. A white french cuff button up blouse and a HOT pink blazer…I’ve been having alot of fun lately!

  19. Ayana says:

    I love peplums! They make my h-frame look more curvy!

    I don’t think Solange can do any fashion wrong–get it girl! I can’t wait to incorporate mint and neons, those will be perfect for the “Haute” Houston weather.
