Every season new trends come and go, causing fashion savvy girls to revamp their wardrobes to keep up. Have no fear this spring though: this list of trends will put you on the map as the it-girl for fashion, fun and everything trendy.

 1. Anything Lace

Lace has been the go-to staple all winter, so if you already have this style then you’re already ahead of the game. All things lace- lace skirts, shirts, shorts,wallets-  have made a clean transition into spring. Looking for some extra oomph? Pair a see-through lace top with a nude colored bra - seemingly second skin lace is very hot right now.

2. Loose Causal Crop Top

Crop tops were all the rage back in the 80's, and recently over this past summer, the midriff baring trend is back in full swing. This time, however, the style is loose and comfortable. Wear your crop top with shorts and motorcycle boots or throw one over jeans as you run out the door - no matter what you pair it with, this look works!

3. Patterned Tights

Tights are always in trend - in the fall, winter, spring, whenever! One way to amp up your tights is to pick out some black or grey patterned ones. Pair these with some acid wash cut off jean shorts for day or a black bandage skirt and high heeled booties for a night out!

4. Simple One-Colored Scarf

Scarves may seem like they are for warmth in the winter but in the spring, this style can pull together an entire outfit. By keeping the colors simple and the materials light, spring scarves are popping up everywhere - with a summer dress and military jacket or with shorts and a cute hat. Bonus, this trend can be used again in the fall!

5. Classic Side Satchel

Cross body bags are not only incredibly useful for keeping you hands free when shopping or strolling along the beach but they are also getting a stylish make-over this spring, making them even more versatile. The style has been popping up for the past year but this season, the twist is to add some classic prepster appeal to your cross body bags. Anything horse-riding related is a must buy!
