It’s here! Warmer weather, chirping birds, green grass, bunnies hopping across your lawn: Spring has arrived and so have the new spring trends in fashion, beauty and more. Not only does the weather change with each season, but so do you! Your mood, your style, your beauty routine…are you ready for a spring “face lift”?
Spring brings with it the desire for brighter colours, fresher looks and a time to step out of our bulky sweaters and embrace a lighter vibe. Eager to get started?
Teen Mashup has you covered ! From home decor to the latest fashion styles, we have gathered a list of what is trending this spring. It’s time for a change so let’s hop to it.
Spring Trends | Beauty:
The latest spring trend is all about your skin but better! Lightweight, fresh and radiant steals the show. M.A.C. jumped on board (or set the trend as they are known to do) and just released their new “Next To Nothing” collection. Perfect timing.
This collection features Next To Nothing Face Colour: an extremely sheer foundation (retails for $38.00 CAD) available in 9 shades. Also available is The Next to Nothing Powder / Pressed (retails for $32.OO CAD). It is a creamy, lightweight powder that beautifully sets makeup without adding colour or coverage. The powder is also available in 9 complimentary shades. This collection delivers a radiant luminosity to the skin without the over-dewiness that can make one look oily or greasy. Kudos to M.A.C. for also making this collection oil, paraben and sulphate free.
The hot trend for this spring: bright, colourful and glossy lips. Peach, electric orange and fuchsia are all the rage. Revlon’s Ultra HD Gel Lip colours are the perfect addition to your makeup collection.
This collection features vibrant color pigments and a creamy mango and whipped vanilla fragrance. No more dry, matte lips guys and gals. These lippies also include an intensely hydrating formula made with hyaluronic acid.
Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Though we love nudes too, why not hop into spring sporting a glossy, bright lip? Be vivacious and have fun!
Shaggy hair is back ! Thing 1970s rockstar but updated !
The messy, layered look is in! Great for all hair types and textures, this look is easy to maintain and effortless to style. Decide if bangs work with your face shape. If not, go for a middle or side part. Be daring and try out some new hairstyles. After all, it is just hair and it will grow back, so why not try something new?
Spring Trends | Home Decor:
Want to spice up your room a little bit? Well Teen Mashup has some tips for you!
Metallics are a hit everywhere: from eyeshadow to lipsticks, but do they work for room decor? YES ! Adding little hints of copper throughout your apartment or bedroom can really put you in the spring and Tumblr spirit. Think bookends, jewelry trays or plant holders as simple and affordable ways to brighten up your space. Luminous and rich in colour, these accent pieces bring a touch of glow and warmth to a room.
Leave the Pastels for Easter Eggs:
Pastels may be the standard go-to for spring, but we love the classy and timeless look of navy embossed bedding . This rich and strong colour can make your comfy bed stand out and scream unique and interesting. Now think of adding a copper accent piece to this room. A match made in heaven.
Spring means new growth and life ! Bring that life inside indoors as well by adding climbing plants to your room! This is an easily way to fill up that some extra wall space, add a pop of colour and give a calm vibe.
Spring Trends | Fashion:
Florals, whether we love them or hate them, will always be a spring trend. We included one as our feature image for all you floral lovers but won’t share the obvious flowery dresses or overalls here. Instead, let’s put the bouquets down for a bit and check out some new trends which are hot right now for Spring 2017.
Yes, ruffles are back. They were a thing of the past but as the tulips peek through the spring earth, ruffles too have returned for a new season. Ruffles, like blue eyeshadow, should be limited. Go overboard and you can look like a parisian parasol. On the other hand, a wardrobe piece with just the the right amount of frills can be very elegant and classy or flirty and fun. Choose a style that works best for you.
Paper Bag Pants:
You may be thinking, “What the heck are paper bag pants?!?”. Well, we are here to tell you they cinch up around the waist similar to how a paper bag looks when you twist it closed. We are also here to tell you that THEY ARE HOT FOR SPRING! These lightweight pants are available in a wide array of styles, patterns and fabrics. Pair them with a heel or boot for a hip/chic look.
Though mini backpacks are still trending, they are simply not that functionable. If you want a bag that holds more than a cell phone, credit card and pack of gum, these Herschel bags are roomy and you guessed it, FLORAL ! Yes, floral backpacks are a major hit for the Spring. They always have been and are here to stay. They’re cute , fun and perfect for school, sleepovers, day trips and more. Who wouldn’t like to strut their stuff with one of these beauties on their backs?
In the Summer of 2016, the bandana trend was a major hit. They’re BACK! Use them as a hair accessory, choker, wrist or ankle cuff. Get a longer size and use it as a belt with the perfect festival denim shorts. Tie one around the strap of your bag for a cute and fun replacement to the pompom clip. The options are endless.
