Spring buys

There's only a month left until spring begins, and that means we're getting close to ditching our winter coats and scarves (and yes, turtlenecks). The good news is, spring has a bunch of new styles up it's decently shorter sleeve.

Here are five of my spring 2015 favorites including links, so you can go online shopping and daydream about warmer weather as you are hiding from the cold!


1. Wide leg pants and culottes are going to be huge (ha) this spring as the runway has been reinventing the 70s. I'll be pairing mine with tighter fitted tops as well as sportswear influenced t-shirts (see: number 4) to avoid looking too much like my clothing came straight off Party City shelves. Culottes are also a bit like glorified gauchos, and a nod to the mess that is the early-mid 2000s clothing is always interesting.

Zara culottes. $59.90
2. Midi skirts are one of my favorite spring wardrobe additions. I got into midi's last year after ordering this white ASOS gem and lusting after a tutu inspired one (which are likely to still be seen on the streets come April). This season, however, I've fallen for the more polished look of the fitted midi, which can be paired and layered with just about anything so you can feel justified spending your money on it.
3. Off the shoulder tops, as seen on the Michael Kors spring runway and in American Apparels near you, will be a popular new way to get yelled at in high schools across America as even more shoulder is shown in class.
4. Athletic shoes/socks/clothes/everything will return again to the mainstream after becoming widely popular on street style blogs last year. Neutral colored athletic shoes (Nike or Adidas brand are favorites) can be paired with almost any outfit imaginable, and adding athletic socks to a usually fancy outfit can be a way to dress down clothing. On the runway, sportswear can be seen through lots of mesh paneling, which is perfect for keeping (and looking?) cool as spring and summer start merging together and you begin to melt. 
5. Neoprene fabric isn't just for wet suits and the ultra cool Triangl bikinis found all over Instagram. This season, we can see the material (also known as scuba) as the main ingredient in beautifully structured skirts, dresses, and tops. The thick material is is perfect for pleating and also poking when you get bored.
