This past month, the ModCloth buyers and I have been busy at trade shows all over Europe and the U.S., on the hunt for exciting new items to bring to the site this spring. Though it’s tough to choose from all of the amazing designs we’ve seen, there are definitely a few trends that stand out!
I believe nothing is ever truly in or out of style — it’s all about wearing what you love and making it your own. But, these retro-inspired fashions are re-emerging as some of my favorites — and I couldn’t wait to share them with you!
Nothing says spring like picnic plaids! It’s one of those trends that never really goes away – and when the weather gets warm, it’s especially fun to pull out this nostalgic pattern. I love the references to the 50s!
Everywhere we went in Europe, we spotted lots of colored denim — so much pink and green! In past seasons, neon ruled colorblocking trends, and though it’s still really cool, we’re seeing lots of great, fresh pastel options for spring.
Another resurgence of a 50’s trend that I’m currently obsessed with is novelty animal prints! All of us at ModCloth are constantly inspired by the animals around us, and I’m no exception. I’m constantly snapping photos of Winston, and my house is full of vintage animal-themed finds. Why not extend them to my closet, too?
What trends are you looking forward to trying out this spring?
