Spring forward: 10 must-have looks for spring

It’s almost time to leave those jackets, beanies and boots behind and exchange them for your floral-printed shirts, shorts and sandals.  Here’s a list of some of the must have pieces for your spring wardrobe.

Adidas Superstar Low-Top Shoes | For Him and Her

Yep, you heard us right!  It seems that these throwback kicks have come back to rock the fashion world!  The great thing about these shoes is you can wear them with almost any outfit.  They are perfect for your school-look and are actually quite comfortable for those long walks around campus.

Short Sleeves Floral Button Ups | For Him

It wouldn’t be spring without floral print!  Add some style to your outfit by pairing it with a cool floral printed button up.  Because this is one of the hottest men’s styles for the spring – you can easily find tons of options for almost online shop or local retailer; however, we do suggest that you visit PacSun.  PacSun not only has a large selection of floral button ups, but the store offers them at very affordable prices that you can’t beat.

Off The Shoulder Crops | For Her

As if crop tops weren’t sexy enough…you now can add another layer of sexiness to your crop by wearing the off the shoulder style.  This style is perfect for those nights out when you want to keep it simple but add a wow factor.  Where can you find these trendy little tops?  Visit stores like Charlotte Russe, Americanapparel.net or GoJane.com.

Sporty Sets | For Her

While you may not even know the difference between a free throw and a lay-up – it won’t matter when it comes to rocking some of the hottest basketball teams.  One of the biggest fashion trends this spring is sports paraphernalia.  From a Chicago Bulls matching crop top and leggings to LA Lakers bralettes and sweatpants, these looks can immediately turn a boring everyday look into a sexy, sporty look that will have all the eyes on you!  Forever21 is our suggested spot to find this style for all under $25.

Tinted Sunnies | For Him or Her

Spice up your eyewear game by grabbing a pair of tinted sunglasses. The great thing about this style is higher-end ray bans are not the only way to go anymore – there are tons of stores that offer cheap and trendy tinted glasses for under $20.  Find your tinted sunnies in nearly every color like blue, orange, green, and our favorite silver!  We suggest visiting places like Urban Outfitters, Aldo, and Call It Spring to find the cheapest deals!

Canadian Tuxedo | For Him or Her

Chances are, you already have some blue jean items in your closet, so this look should be very affordable. The “all jean” look is definitely in this season and you can wear it in so many different ways.  From jean skirts to ripped denim pants – you can pair your blue jean button up with almost any jean button to pull off this fashion forward look.  And we suggest visiting some of your favorite thrift stores to find awesome blue jean apparel.  It seems that they usually have just the jean item you’re looking for.

Strappy Sandal | For Her

It’s time to let those toes hang free and actually begin shaving those legs again!  It’s spring, which means it’s time to show a little leg by pairing your favorite shorts with a trendy strappy sandal.  What makes the strappy sandal fun is that you can find a strappy sandal in nearly any style like lace-up, faux leather, suede, flat and even strappy sandals with heels on them.  Go out and grab you a pair before they are gone!  We suggest you trying sites like Forever21.com, Hm.com, and Boohoo.com to find affordable prices.

Jogger Set | For Him

And the jogger reign continues!  This casual style doesn’t seem to be leaving anytime soon, so you may as well join in on the fashion fun.  Grab a matching jogger set to pair with your favorite athletic shoes.  Not only will you be trendy but you will also be very comfortable.  This is one of those trends that you don’t have to work hard to pull off, so it’s perfect for those who may not be the best at finding “the perfect fit.”  One thing we do have to mention though… this look is definitely a casual look and not a look that works for all situations.  We wouldn’t suggest you wear a matching jogger set to a higher-end restaurant or bar.

Tasseled Kimonos | For Her

Kimonos are great ways to turn your boring look that is runway ready!  Of course, if you are going to do kimonos in the spring…do it right.  Find yourself a light, floral kimono to throw on over your jeans and basic shirts to make a fashion statement.  You can never have too many but we don’t suggest you wearing them with every outfit.  Remember, too much of anything is never a good thing.

Recycled Jeans Turned Shorts | For Him or Her

Go to your closet, pull out those old jeans you haven’t worn in months and start ripping!  Turn your jeans into some awesome rocker shorts full of fringe, rips, cuts that you would normally pay $50 or more for in the store.  We understand that you are in college and you may not have the funds to always buy those little fashion pieces that you would love to buy which is exactly why DIY shorts is such a great way to go.  We suggest using light colored denim and denim you won’t miss if you make a mistake and have to toss them.
