Most buzzy fashion trends typically have a shelf life of one season, but every once in a while, a few come around that outlast the rest. A trend's staying power is attributed to the wearability and timelessness of the pieces that define it (no buyer's remorse to come). Lately, I've seen an abundance of spring trends, but I can already predict which will stick around for a while. Quiet luxury, maximalist styles, and sporty-chic are the talk of the town (and a few of my personal favorites as well). Each one is different from the next, but all deserve a rightful place in our wardrobes. J.McLaughlin has everything you need to test-drive what I'm naming this season's most wearable trends. It's my go-to brand for apparel that's classic, unpretentious, but still elevated for everyday wear. The brand's commitment to traditional silhouettes and high-quality fabrics ensures that even the "trendiest" pieces will have lasting power in your wardrobe. Keep scrolling to shop my selects.

I'm starting out strong with arguably springs's most talked about trend: quiet luxury. You've probably seen this come up all over social media, but I'm here to break it down for you. It's an aesthetic that's all about chic, elevated wardrobe essentials. At its core are well made basics like the Savi Sweater and classic Rue Linen Blend Dress you'll find below. This style is all about giving off that luxurious feel without being flashy. You won't find a logo or identifiable print in sight, and that's how I know this trend has major longevity.

Next up, we have a maximalist moment for those who are all about bold colors and wearable patterns. Spring's blooming flowers always inspire me to dress more colorfully, so this is the perfect time to add some playfulness back into my wardrobe. From the rich pink suit to the floral-printed dresses, these are the items your spring wardrobe is begging for. Join me in pushing my black winter uniform to the back of my closet and opting for these joy-inducing pieces instead.

To close, we have sporty chic, which was popularized during the pandemic when we turned to outdoor activities like tennis and pickleball to fill our time. We turned those courts into our personal runways with matching sets and sleek athletic sneakers. This trend is all about pieces you can wear on and off the court and still look polished. From sporty dresses to functional skorts, these pieces from J.McLaughlin fit the category perfectly. It's athleisure stepped up a notch, and with warm weather upon us, there's no better time to test out this trend.
