The Freshest Spring Style Ideas for Women Size 14 and Up
Although we’re still technically in the season of bundling up in puffers and fuzzy coats, what really warms our hearts is the knowledge that spring is almost upon us. We’re more than ready to strip off the bulky layers and trade out our thick knits for some spring-ready styles—especially those of us on the East Coast who’ve had a taste of it this week. Therefore, we went ahead and started breaking down what specifically we’re excited to wear.
Obviously, spring trends for the size 14+ set are the same as those who wear sizes 0 to 12. The difference, however, is how much more challenging the shopping can be. So, consider the below your sartorial guide and shortcut to the newest trends—no digging around necessary. We’ve scoured the market to bring you only the coolest, most current picks to keep your new seasonal wardrobe exciting.
The Trend: Mellow Yellow
Every season has a statement shade that rises above the rest, and yellow is absolutely having its moment in the sun. The lemony hue immediately brightens up any outfit, so give it a chance to shine by pairing it with your favourite neutrals, or go head-to-toe glow with a monochrome masterpiece.
The Trend: Mad for Plaid
Plaid is typically an autumn perennial, but it’s making a surprising splash this spring. Although there are many types of plaid, the front-runner this season is glen plaid, aka Prince of Wales check. This paler plaid pairs perfectly with pastels as well as vibrant hues.
The Trend: Lavender Dreams
It might be the Ultra Violet effect, but lately we’ve been tickled, well, purple over this pretty pale pigment. While all pastels seem appropriate in the springtime, we’re bumping this lovely lavender to the top of our list.
The Trend: Get Dotty
Polka dots are fairly ubiquitous in fashion, but this season’s take is timeless. Whether micro or mega, go for a classic black-and-white spot. For those who crave a mixed-print moment, pair with a contrasting black-and-white print like stripes or chevron.
