Spring Fashion Essentials That Will Spice Up Your Wardrobe (No Floral Included)

It’s finally spring and I’m so glad to be done with winter. Although Toronto experienced a mild winter compared to previous years and my love for coats, I am happy I don’t need to layer up so much. You’ll see in my spring lookbook how much of a shift my style is when it’s spring. It’s full of lighter colours and more feminine pieces. For this post, I thought I’d share 5 spring trends that I’m looking forward to!

I was pretty against the whole fishnets under tights trend in the beginning but like all trends, I end up getting curious and at least wanting to try it out. I’m not a fan of the bigger fishnets which is why I was so against it (considering that’s what mainly fashionistas have used when trying out this trend) so when I saw that there were smaller ones, I knew I’d like them. I ended up getting a pair from Dollarama (thanks Carolina for the tip) because I’m not trying to pay more than $5 for fishnets, let’s be real here. $2.50 at Dollarama is where it’s at.

I recently received this scallop detailed suede skirt* from SheIn. I absolutely love the detailing on it! It’s a simple scallop cut but I think if there were some floral detailing or pattern along the scallops it would be even cuter. I paired this one with a light sweater since it’s a bit cold still. There’s even scallop cuts on trench coats at Club Monaco which are adorable!

For years, I’ve wanted a lavender, baby blue or a pastel pink trench coat. I thought (and still think) they are insanely adorable but I did notice how common it was for people to get those colours (especially the latter 2 I mentioned). When I saw this sage green one from ASOS last year, I loved how unique it was so once it went on sale I had to get it. I love how even though it’s a coloured trench coat, it’s still pretty versatile compared to if I got a pastel pink one! It’s also so much more fun than the typical cream one I own! Also, the photo I showed is a little sneak peek to my spring lookbook πŸ˜‰

I’ve been obsessed with embroidered jeans since last year and I’m so glad the trend is continuing this spring. Last year they mainly had red and yellow embroidered jeans but now stores like Topshop and Storets have been coming out with other colours for the embroidery. I recently got a pair from Dynamite that will be featured in my spring lookbook so I can’t wait for you to see that!


White jeans is one of the pieces you see a lot of people wearing during the spring. I mean it’s obvious by my “Little to No Effort” post from last week that lighter colours (almost all white) were common in all 3 outfits. Instead of sporting just a plain pair of white pants, I recently received these lace up ones* from SheIn. They’re such a statement piece and I have no other way of saying this but they are just flat out COOL. I’ve been trying to purchase more bolder pieces in terms of style/cut instead of prints/patterns and colour!

As a bonus, here’s an #OOTD for you featuring the same lace-up pants from SheIn and an embroidered blouse* from there as well πŸ™‚

    I've been loving fishnets! I've always loved the lacey, more edgy tights. Wearing them under ripped jeans is my favorite! And scalloped detailing is so cute! I hope I can actually get a couple pieces with it this season.

    Thank you so much!! I've already photographed an outfit wearing fishnets so that will be posted as soon as I'm done shooting the other outfits for it πŸ™‚

    Yesss love them!! Never thought I'd be into that trend!

    I have yet to wear them under ripped jeans! I've seen a lot of people do that but I'm not into having huge rips so I'm not sure if it'll give off the same effect. The scallop hem is such a cute and subtle detail but still versatile at the same time which I love πŸ™‚

    I love the pink scalloped skirt! I cannot get into the embroidery trend, but you pull it off so well! I feel like I'd look cheesy. Love the SheIn pieces – I am addicted to that site! πŸ˜›

    Omg you probably can pull it off!! The embroidery trend is amazing and I guarantee you'll be addicted once you start πŸ™‚ YES, the quality is much better than you'd think!
