It’s official: you can shed your winter layering tactics, it’s finally time to start thinking about spring fashion! So we’re here to welcome the season of wearing stylish clothes again with our spring fashion top style tips.
Tip #1 – Invest in classics.
Who doesn’t love a shopping spree? But this year, when you’re treating yourself to new clothes, invest in classics that never get old.
Start with spring style staples like trench coats, rain boots, and tote bags. These pieces provide good cost-per-wear average as their core style rarely get updated. It makes them a perfect style item to have in your closet year after year.
If you’re the kind that likes their statement pieces to be unique, then check out London Fog x Jeremy Scott’s Classic Double-Breasted Trench Coat (Hudson’s Bay). We’re loving their take on the classic trench coat!
Coach and Michael Kors are always a favourite for bags that never go out of style. For clothes, we love shopping at AllSaints, Joe Fresh, Banana Republic, Ever New, American Eagle, GAP, Club Monaco, and Forever 21.
Tip #2 – Try out trends.
As much as we love having a style staple in our closet, following spring trends can be fun too. Keep an eye on your favourite stores for colours, styles, and more.
Not sure you can pick out trends yourself? Follow your favourite fashion publications to see what you like. At Rakuten.ca, we love Shopstyle’s favourite picks of the month and style highlights. They always give us ideas on how to follow a trend and give it our own spin.
Fair warning: don’t follow every trend or you run the risk of ending up with items that you’ll only use a few times before they go out of fashion.
Our advice: stay true to your style even when following a trend. Try one piece and see if it works for you – like a specific colour, shoe, or accessory. Stick to what you think you’ll be comfortable in and can carry well. Athleisurewear is one of the most universally flattering fashion trends out there so feel free to try that first.
And if you buy something that you decide isn’t for you, pass it on to a friend. People love receiving gifts and having to try a spring fashion trend without spending money on it is always welcome.
