Spring Fling – Trend Talk

Welcome to another edition of Thursday Fashion Files! The official start to spring is so close you can taste it. The weather is warming, the days are getting longer and we’re shedding our winter layers as far as fashion is concerned. This is the perfect time for a spring fling – let’s talk about trends!

Spring Trends 2024

Spring Fling – Trend Talk

I think we are conditioned to tire of things after a few months -maybe because every 3 months we officially begin a new season? Although I cannot be sure I can tell you how excited I am at the start of each new season – even living in FL where be pretty much have just two seasons – hot and hotter. I am so easily influenced by what I see and I can hardly wait to wear the clothes, shoes, and accessories to help me live my best winter, spring, summer, and fall life!

One of my favorite past times is watching YouTube videos and I have been enjoying all the trend talk lately. But you know what I have noticed? I can go from watching one video about spring trends to another and one YouTuber will tell me oversized anything is out and the next YouTuber tells me oversized is in! My head is left spinning!

The Trends I’ll Follow

My goal is never to be the trendiest gal but I do want to be fresh and relevant. Especially as a mid lifer I think it’s important to be current. Think of it this way – you update your technology why not your clothes? When a style or a particular color is trending it’s more readily available and accessible. I try my best to select the trends that really work on my body type, my style personality, and my lifestyle. Not all trends will for me but there are some trends I’ll follow for sure!

Metallic Everything

Metallics are everywhere! From clothes to accessories to make up you cannot go wrong. Silver or gold or both – it just doesn’t matter when you add a metallic you’ve updated your style! I bought this silver tee recently and think it will be great with shorts as the weather heats up.

Thin stripes, wide stripes, horizontal or vertical, stripes are on trend this spring! My feeling is that there’s a stripe for everyone so if this speaks to you, go for it!


Preppy never really goes out of style because it’s a style in and of itself. But, since it’s more popular or trendy this spring we are seeing more of it! I enjoy the Johnny collar sweaters and shirts as well as a cute rugby top. A sweater thrown over the shoulders is another nod to the preppy style.

Tailored Pieces

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love a blazer! In my opinion it’s hard to find anything else that does what this miracle piece does to elevate, accentuate, and pull together a style. Besides blazers, vests and trousers are also on trend for spring! I really enjoy wearing these pieces with sneakers to suit my casual, work from home lifestyle.

Let’s Talk Shoes

Sling backs and kitten heels are two trends we’re seeing a ton of! I’m so happy too because they are both so wearable. Platform sneakers are another trend I cannot get enough of; I’ve only purchased one pair and have had to restrain myself more than once.

A Few Others

My problem with trends is that sometimes I jump on them at the tail end and don’t get the cost per item where I’d like it to be. However, last fall I jumped on the denim midi skirt trend and the crochet sweater trend – I’m thrilled to see they are both back for spring!

Trends I’ll Skip

There are a few hard no’s for me. I enjoy them on others but they don’t work for any number of reasons and I don’t force it – I seem to remember a time when I probably did! However, with age comes wisdom and now I feel just fine about passing.

The first trend I’m skipping is barrel jeans. I’m not a fan but I have seen several taller women they look wonderful on! I’ll admire from afar! Bows are really trendy right now but they won’t work on my hair. They also kind of creep me out – they look a little adolescent and at 55 those days are long gone – ha!! I’m sure there are a few others but these are the ones that come to mind immediately.

How are you feeling about 2024 spring trends? Anything catch your eye? Any hard no’s for you?
