Teen Style

Fast fashion doesn’t have to mean frivolous, and even though most teens are working on a tight clothing budget, there are plenty of stylish pieces out there that only look like a million bucks. The best spring pieces are versatile enough to be layered for chillier mornings but light enough to transition into summer. Here are some tips for picking on-trend spring styles that can be worn in a variety of ways.

Sleeveless Style
One of the biggest trends for guys this spring is an update on a tried and true classic: the hoodie. This spring’s most fashion-forward hoodies lose the sleeves for a look that’s both stylish and practical for the often stifling late spring and summer temperatures. 

Floral Fantasy
Florals have been in for a couple of years now, but this spring’s florals are bolder than ever before. 90s-inspired spaghetti strap maxi dresses with bright, bold patterns look great layered over a turtleneck for cooler spring days, but they look just as chic with no undershirt when the summer weather sets in. Floral rompers are still hot this spring.  Look for V-neck styles in lightweight fabrics.

White Out 
Solid white sneakers for guys make for a hard-to-miss statement piece this spring. While it may take a little effort to keep them clean, white sneakers can really dress up a causal look. This year’s hottest styles are throwbacks, like Vans or Air Force Ones. Some guys are even taking it one step further with all-white ensembles: white tee shirt, white jeans or track pants, and white sneakers make for a clean, retro look. 

Go Graphic
Crop tops and crisscross necklines have ruled the teen fashion scene for the past few years, but this spring is all about the tee shirt. The best tees this season are fitted, solid color tops with a simple message written in bold, black font. Such simple tops are the perfect counterparts to sheer maxi-skirts, flouncy tulle, or high-waisted paper bag pants. 

Let It Shine
This year, sequins make their bold transition from special occasion formalwear to daywear staple. Some of the most stylish looks this year feature unexpected sequins: on denim, adding an extra touch of romance to flouncy dresses, and even making casual skirts a little bit cooler. Pair a sequin skirt with a graphic tee for a look that’s runway ready. 

Purple and Pink
2018’s Pantone Color of the Year is called Ultra Violet, a rich, romantic purple; but pink is demanding just as much attention . . . and not just your everyday pinks and purples.  Shades range from crepe to flamingo, and periwinkle to wine. Pair any of these shades with black or white for a stunning contrast.
