I Spot Micro-Trends Like It's My Job, and These 4 Are About to Blow Up

You're probably aware to some degree of the biggest trends this season. (You're a Who What Wear reader, after all.) But in this series, I'm zeroing in on pieces I'll call micro-trends. These are more hyper-specific iterations of what's trending at large, and I've become somewhat of an expert at spotting them. (Okay, it's basically a pastime of mine at this point.) Once you discover this month's micro-trends, consider yourself an insider.

Warm weather is on the horizon, and it has the fashion world dreaming up their coolest summertime looks (this editor included), which means that the round of fashion micro-trends I've spotted for April is full of styles I'd probably pack on a beach vacation. In today's roundup, you'll find the soon-to-be It shorts, sunglasses, and ankle-baring shoes that are just now starting to bubble to the surface. Each piece is all about the details but will have a big impact on the trend-o-sphere in just a few months' time.

I'm about to share four of these micro-trends that are emerging on the scene this month. From the Instagram feeds of my favorite influencers to the new-arrivals section of the most forward brands and retailers, keep reading to discover and shop all the fashion micro-trends of the moment.
