Monarch Style: Best Bloggers to Follow in the Spring
Spring is right around the corner, which means an inevitable surplus of pastels, ruffles, dresses and floral galore. Along with students, bloggers adore spring fashion because it’s the perfect time to break out the pastel colors and feminine fits. But before delving into spring fashion, getting to know bloggers’ personalized style and why they love spring fashion is a good place to start.
After the chilly weather and deep, sultry colors for fall and winter months, spring creates a breath of fresh air. All of the light pastel colors are bursting with creativity, inspiring a fresh outlook on style for the season. Most fashion bloggers blossom in the spring because of the romantic, airy raptures that this season brings.
Perhaps one of the best trendy blogs to follow for fabulous spring style is Emily Herren of Champagne and Chanel. Herren’s style is continually simple, girly and perfect for campus wear. She is a southern blogger who constantly wears pastels and emphasizes in all things chic. She continually wears trendy clothing—like off-the-shoulder tops, rompers and over the knee boots, but pairs them with pieces that are reusable.
The most appealing factor about Herren’s fashion is the comfortable versatility and color palette. She specializes in incredibly simple, yet adorable outfits. Minimal patterns, a nice pair of jeans and perhaps a slight heel or flats are all you need for class. The pastel and floral colors she clads herself in represent the girlish side of effortless spring fashion.
Another blogger for superb spring fashion is Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific. Seldom seen in sneakers and jeans, Eadie is your go-to for exceptionally high class and chic fashion. Her specialty lies in the luxurious and classy style of light pinks and midi skirts. If you prefer girly to grunge, Eadie is your gal.
Although the extravagance and neat nature of her fashion could be a bit superfluous for simply going to class, she provides the inspiration to look chic regardless of brand and the height of your heel. She fervently wears pastel hues, dresses and skirts, dainty heels and hardly any ripped denim. Her style certainly emphasizes the posh and collect side of feminine spring fashion.
For a put-together but more practical approach to spring campus style, Alyson Haley of Sequins and Things provides cute, concrete outfits for everyday use. Haley posts numerous types of outfits for special occasions, fitness, everyday wear and several affordable pieces. The wide-ranged versatility appeals to the student on a budget who still aims to look stylish.
Enough about individual bloggers, let’s talk about the best spring flings for the wardrobe that they all wear. Obviously, pastel colors are a given, but what about patterns? Floral, gingham, polka dots and embroidery are absolute musts. Embroidered blouses are particularly appropriate for spring, given the oncoming of blooming flowers. They are especially in style at Francesca’s and Freepeople.
Also currently trending are ruffled tops and dresses, off-the-shoulder and loosely fit. Perfect for a date night or simply a nice switch from jeans, these dresses are designed for the lighthearted season of spring to display a fun and stylish look. They pair perfectly with dainty heels or strappy sandals when the weather warms up.
Thanks to bloggers’ innovational and eclectic styles, finding the proper pieces for a fresh spring wardrobe is easy. A few pastel blouses and romantic embroidered dresses are a nice switch from the darker colors and heavy sweaters of winter and fall. Happy shopping!
