The 2018 spring fashion trends range from the whimsical to absurd. We’re talking see-through everything to sequins to gigantic plaids! It can be challenging to apply runway styles to everyday life.

The Haute Life is to the rescue! We’re here to help you sift through the silliness and find what’s wearable. Here are a few trends to give you get a head start on your spring wardrobe!

The Anorak Jacket

Anorak jackets of all shapes, sizes, and materials were seen floating down the runways. We like this simple jacket from Target. The major characteristic of the Anorak jacket is the drawstring around the waist, even though the jacket is midlength. We love the flattering cut! And at just under $50.00, this jacket won’t tap your spring fashion budget!

Anything Hot Pink

A punch of color is just the right medicine to cure the winter “blues.” What color? HOT PINK baby! From cosmetics to workout gear, Barbie’s favorite color is brightening up everything this spring. Here are a few suggestions on how you can inject a little bit of heat into your wardrobe.

JIMMY CHOO Shocking Pink Romy 100 Pumps – $625.00

A Denim Jacket

We consider the denim jacket a staple item. It goes with everything from sweats to the little black dress. We truly hope all of our fashionista friends have at least one in their closet. If you don’t, this is the season to invest. And you don’t have to spend a ton. Head to the Gap and grab yourself one of their icon denim jackets, you’ll never know how you survived without it!

A Sequin Tank

Sequins aren’t just for the holidays, sparkles are everywhere this spring! But, let’s be honest, a full-on sequin suit might be a bit much. Try adding just a pretty little sequin tank or cami to your closet. Even better, try it underneath that new denim jacket. 😉

Ruffle Hem Jeans

Ruffles have been making waves for the past few fashion seasons. Only now, they have rippled all the way down to pant hems. We don’t know if this trend will stick, but we think this fresh take on the bell bottom deserves a little press.

A Checkered Skirt

You’ll definitely want to “check” this print trend off your fashion list. Plaids and checks are all over the place! But, don’t let this trend make you go mad, just go easy on the plaid! 😉 Try adding just one piece to your wardrobe. We love this checked midi-skirt from Zara. Oh, and doesn’t that denim jacket just go perfectly with this too?
