How To Add Spring Fashion 2018 To Your Winter Style

Gosh folks, I feel slightly hesitant to already write about the spring fashion 2018 as I want to embrace the winter fashion fully. BUT I know that the majority of you are eager for spring to arrive and also the fact that the fashion weeks starts today, so already have a full month of fall/winter clothes ahead. With that said, let’s talk about how you can add spring fashion 2018 to your style:

Trendy Elements

There are quite a few interesting trends that are coming for spring, or should I say evolving? You’ll recognize quite a few styles from past seasons and if you’re a fashion person with a love for trends, you might already have a few of these items in your wardrobe.

The Color Red – The first trendy detail, which also is a classic color, is red. The red shade has been major in the fashion world, fully exploding last fall. Adding pops of red to your outfit is a great way to energize the winter style. Perhaps the most fashionable way of going for red is doing so in the monochromatic way. If you don’t have clothes to do so fully, a red sweater is energizing enough!

Statement Sweaters – A second trendy idea that will help you embrace the spring style this winter is to go for the statement sweaters. The statement can truly be about whatever, from the sleeves to the color or the trendy statement texts. If you followed the ruffles or the statement sleeves, you’re pretty much good to go. A way to make a statement with your regular sweater is to add a pin or some embroidery to make it pop! Get some inspiration from this article onΒ the men’s fashion fall 2018!

Monochromatic –Β Already mentioned in the red style, the monochromatic look can be done in several ways. Perhaps in classics as grey or camel? An all white monochromatic outfit feels both crispy and stylish for the winter style but also one that translates to spring fashion. If you want to go for the colorful life, an all yellow, orange or perhaps green will carry you through! Keep bringing it up, but ultra violet is the color of the year and surely a fun challenge!

Dark Floral Print – Lastly, would it even be spring if I didn’t mention some florals? Eh, probably not! The floral prints are generally darker during the colder months and lighter for spring and summer. This is not completely the case for spring 2018 as the dark florals, from a trend perspective, seems to be the go-to choice! They’ve been popular for the embroidery trend but also mesh and other transparent materials that have been matched with details of flower prints! With that said, if you want to stay on the trendy side, you’re safe to bring out the darker florals (or continue using them). The darker florals are also a nice balance of florals representing spring and the darker colors representing fall/winter!

Stylish Elements

Now let’s talk some more about timeless, stylish, pieces that one always can rely on for every spring season. Elements of style that often pops up in one shape or another – it’s how the fashion mentality goes, certain details are always returning!

Pastels – The brighter shades of the color scale are surely reliable for creating a spring feeling a few months ahead. You have the classic dove blue but also baby pink, the classic peach and the beloved mint green. It’s easy to reach for the darker colors during winter which makes the pastel shades a great contrast. I wrote an appreciated article on how the pastels relate to the darker shades, which might help you in the styling jungle!

Lighter materials – I know I’ve been going non-stop about statement materials the past months, but as genius as the typical fall textures (faux fur, knitwear, faux leather etc) are, there are stylish spring/summer materials too. Lace, crochet, mesh, organza, viscose are all examples of this. A favorable way to break off the heavy winter layers is to go for the lighter materials. Faux leather pants are a chic match with a delicate lace blouse. Or a blouse in viscose works well with a faux fur jacket! Picking these materials in lighter colors calls for the double effect!

Midi lengths – Fine, it might only have been in the last seasons where the midi lengths have become cool again. Culottes, midi skirts, midi dresses? I’m here for it! I do mention the specific length in the style section as I do think that the style will stick around and also that many of us have pieces in this length. The length is also great sign of spring, perhaps being too early to go sans tights, but adds a nice flow. Especially if you go for a dress or a skirt in a chic pastel shade or perhaps a floral print? Anyways, don’t forget to contrast the length with some fierce boots!

Folks! How do you add spring 2018 to your winter style? Drop a comment below! Xx

  1. We’re talking about Spring fashion already? Well I guess spring is just around the corner and will be here any minute now. I do like the dark florals. I think they’re really pretty and sort of gives an edge to them. xo

    • The dark florals are just so pretty though, love them! Xx

  3. Hey there, hope you’re having a good weekend πŸ™‚
    Can’t wait for all the upcoming trends, new garments and editorials that are coming. Actually I would love to see some fashion week summary up on The Fashion Folks, I don’t know about you but sometimes the flow of information is just too much haha!

    Also I wanted to thank you for the last comment you left on my blog. I congratulate you for deciding to focus on your website, because at the end of the day this is all that truly matters and is something that you control 99,99%. Being honest we are not sure if Instagram could just disappear and delete all of our photographs, sometimes we just spend too many hours creating content for it and we must understand that this platform is not under our control. I wish you the best on your blogging career and I must say you’re doing it amazing by now πŸ˜€

    I always love to stop by your site and get inspired by all you share with us πŸ™‚

    Have an amazing week ahead!

    • Awww you’re the best Pablo! I did the first review today and the summary of nyfw will be up on friday!! I hope it’s wise too, though I need to find a balance between focusing on the website and promoting it, but right now I’m doing pretty well with SEO and Pinterest, so I shall keep the focus there. Thank you for all the love, you’re a gem!! Xx

  4. Oh these kind of stylings are actually some of my faves right now! I am already in such a spring mood so I try to incorporate as many spring elements as possible πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing those tips – I am wearing some pastel tones right now!

    • That’s lovely Carmen, I need to do more of that for sure! Xx

  5. I feel that very same conflicting feeling haha: wanting to make the most of the season we’re in, but desperate for the brighter, sunnier and warmer days ahead that Spring brings! I love your suggestions, particularly dark florals and introducing pastel colours πŸ™‚ Have a fabulous weekend!

    • Hahah well that’s what the transition period is for huh? Best of both worlds sort of haha, Xx

  6. I love thinking about how to add some spring into my wardrobe now… can it just be spring yet? I do have some red but could use more, and you KNOW I need more sweaters πŸ™‚

    • Hahah I dooo, and I expect you to show some chic ones soon! Xx

  7. Yes, yes, yes! I’ve been having a major sweater obsession lately and I have to contain myself because H&M’s section is so good this year. I’ve gotten a few styles that I love that some sort of cool design and of course, I have a red one, which I LOVE so much! One way I’m excited about transitioning to spring with my winter pieces is by injecting some white. I’ve just purchased these white mules that I’m looking forward to wearing with some of my moodier winter pieces and colors. It really brightens things up as you say. I also love the idea of pastels, too. I was going to get rid of these coral pants I’ve had for what seems like forever and haven’t worn that much, until I started to randomly think about them and what I can pair them with and now I look forward to wearing them come spring. Thanks for sharing these suggestions with us, babes, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

    • What, coral pants sounds crazily interesting?! You’re gonna have to create an outfit with them soon and show on the blog! Xx

  8. This post is so for me – because I just can’t wait for spring! Bring on those dark florals and ultra violet monochrome. The only thing I’ll have to really work on is keeping red in the mix. I’m ready for something darker or more neutral! Have a fabulous weekend! xx

    • Haha that’s lovely Quinn, one of the best periods is now indeed! Xx

  9. These are wonderful ideas! I’ve been loving the statement sweaters this season! Dark florals are perfect to bridge the gap between winter and spring too!

    • The statement sweaters are lovely, especially when they add a pop of color! Xx

  10. I love pastel colors even though jewel tones suit me so much more. Statement red might be my favourite. It’s always classic but I don’t intend to stop wearing them. Dark florals are so nice for spring, but hard to pull off in Florida… it’s already 25c here. >.< Which is your fave?

  11. Although I am ready for the milder weather, I am still embracing winter fashion. But, it will be lovely to wear lighter clothing soon. I love florals and spring style elements. xx/Madison
