So you’re probably wondering why I’m writing this after the polar vortex half of America just suffered through. Maybe I’m just a little too excited for warmer weather, and I know I’m not the only one. I’ve been waiting for the days where I can go outside and not freeze my butt off within three seconds of stepping outside my door, but honestly I’m just excited for the new fashion trends. I’ve got all of the latest essentials and trends to keep you up to date for this spring. (if it ever comes)

Platform Shoes The 70s trends are slowly coming back and I am HERE for it. Whether its sneakers or sandals, I have been seeing girls wearing platform shoes all around campus more and more everyday and I think it’s such a cool look. Here are some of my favorites.

Superga Acot Linea Sneaker

Vince Slip-On
Alohas Sandals Vegas Camel

Flare Pants Keeping on with this 70s trend, flare jeans, or pants have also made their way back into the fashion world, and yes, I’m also 100% here for this also. I’m a huge fan of “fun” jeans so finding a cool pair of pants can do wonders to any outfit.

Revice Venus Flares Star Jeans

Wrangler Retro Crop Flare
Rag and Bone Ruth Super High Rise

Statement Jewelry If I’m honest, I was never a big jewelry person until recently and now I’m obsessed. I’m super into statement earrings and bracelets and they can really up your outfit game within seconds. I wear tiny hoops everyday and the same rings and necklaces and it just adds that flare.

Luv AJ Baby Amalfi Tube Hoops
Argento Vivo Cross Drop Hoops
Star and Moon Drop Earrings

Crossbody Bags I’ve always loved crossbody’s for the spring. They’re big enough to hold your daily essentials, and it’s not like you’re lugging around some huge duffle bag everywhere you go.

Gucci Soho Disco Bag
Free People Indie Flap Bag
See by Chloé Mini Joan Bag

Animal Printed Anything Something I haven’t really gotten hooked onto yet is the whole cheetah print vibe that’s been happening recently but I think it’s so chic. Cheetah print, tiger print, snakeskin, you name it I’m here for it.

UO Heidi Surplice Tank
Revolve Lioness Cypress Pants

Who else is ready for warmer weather? I need sunny and 75 ASAP.
