This doesn’t mean that traditional black leather is out of style, but colorful leather is here to pack an even bigger punch. Colorful leather materials are being used in tops, dresses, pants and skirts and can be found everywhere from designer stores to local boutiques.

A Floral Reinvention
Florals for spring are not a groundbreaking trend since fashion-lovers have seen it for years and years … and years. But, this spring, expect a reinvention of the typical floral trend as big-name brands are introducing new types of florals to the masses. Psychedelic florals, tropical florals and tiny florals have taken over Instagram feeds all over the world. The psychedelic florals focus on a massive geometric-like floral design with neon detailing, while the tiny floral design includes small embroidered or printed florals on a single garment.

Chunky Chains
This super-sized jewelry trend was seen on the 2020 spring/summer runways of Brandon Maxwell and Chanel and has quickly become a necessity when it comes to a modern streetwear look. Try pairing a chunky silver or gold chain necklace with other metal necklaces to achieve a chic, yet edgy look. Just remember; the chunkier the chain, the better.

Long Lariats
Big-name designer brands such as Versace, Celine, Isabel Marant and Pyer Moss have brought back the infamous lariat necklace, a jewelry trend that hasn’t been seen in a few years. Available in an array of styles including gold, silver or jeweled, the long lariat necklace worn with a deep-V shirt, dress or suit is sure to create a bold statement this spring.
