Is Your Wardrobe Spring Ready? Ideas For Your Spring Wardrobe

All winters melt into spring and Australians are welcoming it with a fashion hymn. For months now, we've been wrapping ourselves in winter maxi dresses and we made sure that our cupboard had at least one stunning winter party dress. But, now that the days are getting longer and the promise of summer is in the air, we are once again, scouring the internet for spring clothes for women.

As it has been years now, there isn't really what we can call the fashion trend of the season. Runways have seen hemlines that range from the micro-mini to maxi overdresses that sweep the pavement; colors that range from bright primary colors to hot pink and neon green, and of course, black. Big shoulders are in, and some are so humongous, the wearer won't get through every door she encounters. With cut-outs that display acres of skin on the one side and voluminous dresses that could fit two people at once, fashion is getting increasingly eccentric.

Let's look at what the coming season has in store for us. 

The Colors For Spring 2022

You can't go wrong if you go bold. Think Valentino's all-pink collection for spring/summer 2022. Celebrities like Zendaya, Anne Hathaway, Ariana Grande, Gigi Hadid, and Glenn Close have embraced the hot color. Deep fuchsia is the specific hue. You also can't go wrong with lime green, used to full effect by Valentino, Stella McCartney, Versace, and a host of top designers. The color makes for a perfect party dress.

If you like solid blue, yellow, and orange better, you won't be out of step. Go ahead, wear the color you like best as long as it is bright and happy.

There is one exception though. Hailey Bieber, Kourtney Kardashian, and Jessica Alba, and other celebrities have been seen in soft yellow outfits by designers like Chloé, Proenza Schouler, Max Mara, and Jil Sander.

Choose Your Length

Micro-minis, midis, and maxi skirts have all graced the runways recently. Fashion designers, social media influencers, and runway models are all looking elegant in longer skirts, especially the flattering midi. Pair it with a loose-fitting jacket and you're perfectly fitted for work. Or wear it with another eternal favorite: the tank top for a more casual look. 

Shop for your spring midi dresses at Australia's largest marketplace for ethical and sustainable clothing brands

This Chantel mini dress by Lakeyo available on Local Threads ticks many of the spring 2022 boxes: length, color, and cutout look.

Ballet Flats Are In

The spring season brings great news for those of us who feel unsafe teetering on high heels. Ballet flats are all the rage. Popular in the late nineties and early 2010s, leading designers Miu Miu, Tory Burch, Simone Rocha, Molly Goddard, Chanel, and others have put these little darlings back on trend during the latest autumn and spring runway shows. 

They are just the right fashion accessory for fashion-savvy Australian women who need a pair of practical shoes during the hot Australian summer. This versatile footwear can add pizazz to last year's office outfit and still look good for an after-work drink at the local pub.

Cutouts Are Still Here

We first saw cutouts a year ago, and since then, the trend has grown in size, literally and figuratively. Some of the cutouts that celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Bella Hadid, Anne Hathaway and a host of others have been seen in have been riskier than risky. Check out the Kendal Jenner spring wedding guest dress and the Kourtney Kardashian swimsuit on Instagram. 

When you go shopping for a spring cocktail dress, look out for a cutout in one of the season's favorite colors.

Crochet It

Everything you can wear from shorts and tank tops, to mini and maxi dresses, as well as handbags, bucket hats, and baklavas can be crocheted and worn this spring and summer. Add to that the sexiest bikinis you have ever laid eyes on. 

And the word is that the younger generation is not forking out dollars to buy these items; they are making them. GenZ started their love affair with crafts during lockdown to combat boredom and anxiety, and their videos on TikTok have propelled the craft to high fashion runways.

There is something for everyone: bold rainbow stripes and bold checked patterns that look just like the ones retired ladies make for charities are all popular. Our favorite is a simple maxi spring cocktail dress in white yarn. It looks light, elegant and sexy at the same time.

Celebrities that have donned crochet outfits by fashion designers include Gigi Hadid, Jasmine Tookes, and Megan Fox.

This outfit by Love & Light the Label is knitted, but it gives the same feel and look as a crocheted item, plus it features fringes, which is another big look for spring 2022.

Dig Out Your Denim 

It seems like the more fashion trends come and go, the more denim stays the course. For both men and women, loose-fitting jackets and Cargo pants are in this spring. Most of us are relieved that denim remains such a dependable staple year in and year out, because we all have a pair that we just want to keep on wearing.

This year's silhouette is loose, wide, and low-slung. If that's not in your wardrobe, simply team what you have up with a loose denim jacket or a denim vest. And if you have a maxi denim skirt, dig that out as well for this season, or find one in a local thrift store.

Halterneck Season

Halternecks are back in a big way. This shoulder-baring style is sexy, yet elegant. A floral spring dress in a lightweight fabric is the ideal garment for a day out on the beach and can be worn with great success late into the evening. Designers like Rejina Pyo, Michael Kors, Valentino, Christian Siriano, Chanel, Dior, and Tory Burch all had halternecks out on the runway and many celebrities are donning the style. s

Like denim, this is another basic that comes around every few years and is always welcomed by style lovers.
