Spring 2018 fashion trends - the hottest trends this season, all in one place

You guys, spring has officially arrived! (Although I'm not sure Mother Nature has gotten the memo.) Nor'easters aside, today we're talking springtime fashion by breaking down our top five favorite trends of the season. 

Just pick up one (or all five) of the styles below to instantly update your look for spring 2018. Scroll down to find out what's trending.

Pastel Jackets

So long, drab outerwear. Hello, gorgeous pastels. Jackets with a subtle pop of color are going to be huge this season, and they offer a chic reprieve from the typical dark, drab neutrals often worn during colder months.   

Pick one up now, then wear it immediately. It's the perfect piece to take you through the winter-to-spring transition.  

Vertical Striped Everything

We love a good stripe, and spring 2018 has turned the tried-and-true print on its side (literally!). But don't be wary of vertical stripes... the graphic up-and-down lines are actually ultra-chic.

Want to ease into this look? Opt for a classic thin pinstripe. Feeling daring? Go for a thicker stripe in multiple hues.

Ruffle Sleeve Tops

A t-shirt is a staple in every girl's wardrobe and the hottest styles this year feature ruffled sleeves. What we love about this trend is how accessible it is. There are tons of options out there—from bold and voluminous to chic and understated—in every color of the rainbow.

If you feel like you're in a bit of style rut, buy one of these. It'll instantly kick your go-to jean-and-tee combo up several notches.

Ditsy Florals

We can't talk spring trends without including a floral print, and this season is all about the ditsy floral, a.k.a. a teeny-tiny flower print. Don't let the small scale fool you, though. Whether you opt for a breezy top or tailored shorts, this print packs a big punch style-wise.

Off-the-Shoulder Swimsuits

When it comes to swimwear trends, off-the-shoulder bathing suits are going to reign supreme throughout 2018. All sorts of bikinis, tankinis, and one-pieces have been given the cold shoulder treatment, and the resulting styles range from retro to ultra-modern, plus everything in-between.

The only downside? These suits could result in some odd tan lines. So go for faux and use a high SPF sunscreen (which is something you should already be doing, of course).

Your turn!
