How to: Mix spring trends

Florals, and sports, and colours, oh my! As an indecisive person, I can never stay set on my favourite spring trend to wear. So why decide? Why not wear them all at once instead?

One trend that has been around for a few seasons now is florals. They're pretty and typically feminine. But somewhere along the line of our re-ignited obsession with the 90s, styling florals to be more edgy came into play. Which ties in really nicely with the athletic trend. I'd also like to distinguish that the athletic trend is really "athletic-inspired". Walking around in yoga pants and a varsity team hoodie doesn't count as fashion. But when you're borrowing from those ideas with graphic print t-shirts and baseball caps. And bright colours are always in style for spring. Always. Sure, certain colours are more popular than others during different years, but you can never go wrong with a pop of colour after a dreary winter.

So I've put together this set that showcases how you can throw the floral, sporty, and bright trends together. The great thing about a plain t-shirt with some simple text is that it can be paired with any floral pattern. Layering this look with a light denim jacket really ties the look together by adding a bit of edginess to the florals while maintaining a pretty vintage quality. Then, just add a colourful bag or clutch for some spring cheerfulness and grab a pair of floral sunnies. Finally, slip on your favourite pair of plain sneakers to top off the athletic look. And there you go- a great look to go exploring around town, and with sensible shoes. Hourray for no more arch-killing heels!
