2017 Spring Fashion Trends

Looking cute this spring is not going to be hard to accomplish. #HipNewJersey has a few trends that everyone should know before they leave the house this season.

Do you want to look stylish and comfortable when going to school, work or running errands? Athleisure is the best way to accomplish that. Athleisure wear is an acceptable way to wear your gym clothes outside of the gym.

We all remember Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s take on denim fashion, thank goodness we have figured out how to move past that. Denim jackets are simple and complement various outfits. 

Ah stripes! I know a lot of us are afraid to wear stripes – but donโ€™t be. Stripes are in this spring and we are loving them. This season, the bolder the better.

Is pink the new black? Maybe not, but having a few pink staple pieces in your wardrobe is a must. A pink jacket or a pair of pink pants can turn any outfit into a fashion statement.

Miss Selena Quintanilla created the bustier look that we love and now itโ€™s coming back. Showing off your bralettes are everything this spring. Pairing your bralette with high waisted pants and a denim jacket makes for an ultimate go-to look. Another way to show off your bralette in a more modest way is to throw on a sheer top.
