Love them or hate them, fashion trends can infuse and inspire your sewing with new colors, silhouettes and accessories you might not otherwise explore. Spring is a great time to try new things, experiment and have fun with fashion. Here are our top trends to try this spring.First, a word about color: all the colors are in, so do you. From pastels and bold pops to sheers and prints to sequin and fringe trim…now is your chance to embrace your inner extra!
If spring is long where you live, consider a classic trench coat in a feminine pastel or a bold hue. We particularly love the Luzerne Trench by Deer & Doe – a nod to the classic trench with plenty of modern upgrades and details. You can find more inspiring looks here.
Wide-leg pants are here to stay…and we’re not sad about it! We’ve gathered styling ideas for a balanced silhouette. And perfect timing: join the Emerson Crop Pants sew along this month and make a pair with us!
Layer on the sheers with a spring kimono. Read our latest round up for info on our top kimono pattern picks, find the perfect sheer in your stash (it’s not going to sew itself!) and sew one up for a bit of instant drama.
Fun mules, clogs and sandals might be the best thing about warmer weather. Hack a high-end look by adding pompoms to basic black mules or flats. A couture look that doesn’t cost a fortune!
Another nod to a classic silhouette, pencil skirts are back. This wardrobe staple is perfect for spring soirees and super easy to dress up or down with the right top and accessories. Wear it to the rehearsal dinner AND the wedding, friends! Here at SN headquarters, we’ve got more than a few pencil skirts on the spring sewing docket.
Change up your standard bag situation this spring with a fanny pack. This one took a while to wrap my head around and it might not be for you, but there’s no denying it: these bags are everywhere this spring! From leather to sporty canvas to embroidery-embellished, fanny packs are stylish and practical for warm weather adventuring.
When in doubt, just add ruffles. Unless you’re team flounce…then add flounces!
