Fashion Trends You Can Use

Orange pants, patterned pants, funky shoesToronto Fashion Week in March led us into this season’s spring fashion trends.  You may think you can’t keep up with the latest in women’s or men’s styles, but everyone can find something that suits their personality.

Here are some hot new trends. Check out how you might make them work for you.


Today’s Fashion Trend Making it work for you
Neon colours and “colour blocking” on dresses: neon yellow, green, blue, pink, orange Wear an ultra thin, neo bright belt, a bright T-shirt or neo bracelet
Crocheted everything and lots of lace, from vests, dresses, shawls and hats. Dig out that 1970’s vest from your closet, or for just a bit of flare, opt for a crocheted handbag in a neutral colour.
Fringes in single and multi layers on skirts, capes, dresses and jackets. Choose a single fringe, and if you pick a fringe
on a skirt, keep it at knee length to avoid a costume-look.
Pointy pumps and ridiculously high heels in bright colours. Choose pointy pumps with a kitten heel for a more comfortable look and feel. Scale down the heal but pick out a pump or sandal in a bright colour.
Prints, prints, prints, mixed with stripes and colours on everything from pants to skirts
and dresses.
Enjoy the beautiful prints but accessorize gently, with a single coloured shoe and a neutral handbag.
Men and women: Bold coloured jeans in blue, orange, yellow, red. Also for men, the return
of desert boots and sneakers in bright shades of suede and canvas.
Wear with a simple, single-colour long top or tunic and a simple low healed shoe or sandal. Bright coloured shoes suit everyone, but make the shoes are the single statement in your look. Opt for neutral pants or skirt.
