March marks the beginning of warmer weather, longer days, and most importantly—spring fashion. The relief of putting away your puffer coats and thermal underwear and bringing out lighter layers is unmatched, as we’re often able to express personal style better when function gives way to form and it’s not so frigid out. 

According to stylist Chelsea Volpe, expressing your softhearted side is in, with fabrics like lace and tulle being at the forefront of spring trends. We’re also predicting that quirky and playful accessories will trend hard, as folks find new ways to reinvent themselves in accessible ways. And of course, throwback fashion is still on top, including styles from the ’70s, ’90s, and early 2000s. 

Read on to see the fashion trends that will take over this spring, along with some of our shopping picks for each look.

Sculptural Sandals

Statement shoes are on trend this spring—more specifically sandals that look like works of art. These colorful slippers have a unique energy and shape, making you look fashion-forward even with the simplest outfit. We love that even though they appear complicated, they’re usually made with rubber or other flexible materials for a comfortable, supportive fit.

Whimsical Hair Accessories 

While there’s been an emphasis on basics and simple silhouettes in clothing, accessories are becoming more fun than ever. Whether it be sequin scrunchies or cartoonish pins, we’ll definitely see people expressing more color and charm with hair accessories. Decorative claw clips had their moment in 2022, but this year, playful hair clips and barrettes are becoming more and more popular.

Delicate Lacework

New York–based stylist Liv Schreiber says that romantic pieces are definitely in for spring—and what’s dreamier than lace? Expect to see a lot of pieces that have lacework or lingerie-inspired tops and dresses. You could say this is a daintier extension of the balletcore trend—which was going strong all of 2022—and will most likely continue into spring of this year.

Tulle Ruffles

In the same airy, ephemeral vein, tulle is another trend you’ll see making waves this year. It’s been on the cusp of the cycle for a minute, but expect to see it everywhere once the weather gets a little warmer. You might think of tulle as a material that should be reserved for formal events, but there are plenty of ways to dress it down—like pairing a white T-shirt with a tulle skirt or wearing casual sandals with a tulle minidress.

Aughts Business Casual

Say goodbye to dopamine dressing and logomania—early 2000s basics are back and even better than they were before. Instead of vibrant patterns and designer monograms, we’re bringing back muted tones and simple but elevated silhouettes à la Miu Miu in the early aughts. Pieces that are perfect for the office are considered everyday wear with this style, which consists of knee-length or midi skirts, basic tanks, and oversize blazers. Schreiber also notes that there will be more of an emphasis on flawless tailoring and fit. While keeping up with trends can get tiring (and expensive), this one has classic items that will remain stylish through every cycle.

’70s Eyewear Frames 

When it comes to eyewear this year, bigger is definitely better. If you’ve been on the fashion side of TikTok lately, you’ve probably noticed that oversize, square-shaped ’70s-style glasses are back on trend with a modern twist. You can channel the disco decade by wearing a vintage pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses or buying a pair of everyday frames to add a retro feel to your ensemble.

Viva Magenta 

Since 1999, the Pantone Color Institute has chosen a color it feels embodies the climate and culture for the year ahead. This year’s pick is Viva Magenta, which the Institute describes as a shade that “revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression.” The bright purplish-pink shade is definitely bold, and you’re bound to command attention wherever you go while wearing it. For a spring look, pair a magenta piece with muted colors or pastels or wear a magenta set to really stand out. We’ve already spotted the color on the runways, so we’re sure it'll be everywhere this season.

Skinny Scarves

’90s fashion continues to dominate the 2020s trend cycle, and skinny scarves are the newest accessory to make a comeback. There’s not one bit of utility to this accessory, but they add a bit of stylish playfulness to your outfit nonetheless. A sequined option is the season’s must for your going-out outfit or you can wear a basic, solid-colored scarf for a chicer, classic look.
