First of all, this spring the military designs of winter will carry over, only this time they will worked into lighter materials. You cannot go wrong with any spring jacket or raincoat that has a military barred style down the front or buttons across the breast. Although you can still get away with short hipster raincoats, the style is slowly switching towards longer below the butt length and even down to the knee if you pair the coat with a nice pair of suede or leather boots to lengthen your legs.
Next up in spring designs is the abstract trend, which is also sometimes referred to as the architectural design, and is lighting up the catwalks across the globe. The essence of this womens fashion trend is sharp cuts and accents that really make a shirt, dress, or skirt look sharp, edgy and modern. Traditionally if you stick to soft hues with sharp black edging or accents you will be ok, but if you want to push the fashion envelope you may want to create your own abstract clothing by pairing solids with sharp jewelry that stands out across the clothing.
Speaking of dresses, this season in womens fashion length is very important as very short and very long is way out. Although last autumn may have been filled with tights and short sweaters creating the mini look, minis are still very much out and you need to be careful to choose a more modest length if you want to be in fashion. While mid thigh lengths are ok, the best cut for most dresses and skirts during spring will be gently above the knee although there is room for a little variation. Extremely long is also back out so try to avoid the flowing look.
Finally, if you the last thing that you will need in your closet this spring are some floral prints, but not the large floral prints that make you look like drapes. Instead, choose floral prints that are small and detailed and appear more like prints then flowers. Pair this look with a military jacket or tunic shirt and you will have a look that will easily make you pop out to anyone walking by on the street. Toss in some boots and you will be just about as close to the runway as you can get while strolling through your daily routine.
