Spring 2016 Trends

Megan Atkins

‘Tis the season before spring, when all through the gym, spring breakers were stirring for a booty like Kim’s. The tilts have been made and flights have been booked. As for the fashion forecast, here it is; take a look. 

Spring has officially sprung, but since this is Iowa, there’s no guarantee the freezing cold is over. While the weather forecast is out of our hands, the spring fashion forecast has arrived. Here is a list of trends that suit a wide variety of different styles:

Baseball caps

Baseball caps offer a good way to add a pop of casual to any look. As seen on Kendall Jenner, a baseball cap can be worn with a sleek, monochromatic outfit. Baseball caps also provide the perfect excuse to not attempt dealing with bed head.

The caped shoulder

This trend makes a regal statement for any occasion. It can be dressed down with skinny jeans or dressed up with pumps. However worn, there’s no denying the satisfaction of strutting the streets with a cape.

Bell sleeves

The ’70s are making a comeback with bell sleeves. For a more bohemian vibe, add a braided hairdo to complete the look. What’s next? Tassels and go-go boots?

Suede skirts

This fall trend is continuing into the spring. A suede skirt adds texture and excitement to any plain tee. It looks stunning with thigh-high boots or lace-up flats.


From colorful New Balances to a pair of white Adidas, sneakers are seen worn with boyfriend jeans, T-shirt dresses, etc.  

Lace-up flats

Lace-up flats provide the perfect combination of edgy and cute, not to mention comfortable. Don’t let the laces scare you; many pairs are offered with a zipper in the back.
