An Illustrated Guide to Spring's Must-Know Trends

Sponsor Content Created With Frye

Can we all agree that the best time to start shopping for spring is right now? We’ve been huddled under our puffer coats for far too long, and now that the temps are rising, we’re itching to peel off those extra layers. We just can’t stop daydreaming about all of the bright colors (pink!) and fun silhouettes (ruffled tops!) our closets will soon be filled with.

If you, too, have spring style on the brain, take heed: We’re breaking down the four spring trends you need to know, with some help from our friends at Frye. From unexpected shapes to a new take on bohemian dressing, our illustrated guide to spring has a little something for everyone.

Deconstructed Shirting

If there’s one trend we’re especially excited about embracing for spring, it’s this one. There’s something undeniably fun about deconstructed shirting, and versatility is an added bonus. From ruffles to unexpected asymmetrical off-the-shoulder variations, you can take this look from the office to Sunday brunch. Finish off your look with sleek, minimalistic accessories to juxtapose the detail of your top.

Athleisure 2.0

If you’ve kept an eye on the street style scene this past year or so, you know that the laid-back Vetements effect is alive and well. And for spring, elevated athleisure shows no sign of slowing down. Add in a handbag with on-trend circular hardware and your look is set.

Bohemian Beauty

This season, the bohemian trend takes on a more feminine feel with bold pinks and soft, breezy fabrics. We love pairing this look with a pair of Western-inspired ankle boots; it’s the perfect combination of soft and tough.

Touch of Military

Fall’s heavily military-inspired silhouettes get a spring update. We love adding details like a corset belt over a trench coat and a slouchy pair of boots. The look is street-style approved and, like all the best trends, superbly practical.

Nayiri is Who What Wear's senior fashion editor for branded content and based in her hometown, Los Angeles. It all began in 2014 when she landed an internship at the company and never looked back. While she does love writing her fair share of fashion stories, her heart really belongs in the brainstorm room, where she has fun strategizing different ways to create content with our fashion partners so that you engage with the brands you know and love. Her style tends to be more classic (she loves a good black-and-white look with gold accessories), and white pumps are kind of her thing. If she had to pick one person's wardrobe to raid, it would be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's, and she also has a major obsession with interior design. She's a mom to a 1-year-old baby girl named Sophie, and she fully plans on training her to spot fashion trends by the time she's 10. That's all!
