Change up your wardrobe and get rid of those neutral colors: Spring fashion is here and a new trend emerges among Penn State students as the weather warms up.
Since green is such a popular color for winter, sage green or pastel green is popular this spring, according to student Corey Steinruck.
“I know that the colors definitely change from winter to spring,” said Steinruck (senior-accounting and entrepreneurship). “I think for this season, pink gum, tangerines, and almost green tennis balls will be popular.”
Lila DiPaolo also said green will be popular this season, along with several other colors.
“I think green sage types are still popular, and cream oranges,” said DiPaolo (an advertising freshman). “[I think] we’ll see a lot of things this spring and summer. “
Maddie Kuzmich says she has prepared her wardrobe for spring by adding more color.
“Since winter is so neutral, I have to order things that are more colorful,” says Kuzmich (sophomore-biobehavioral health).
Additionally, DiPaolo hopes to see a number of matching sets and monochromatic outfits this season.
“I’ve seen a lot of two sets with tank tops and shirts,” said DiPaolo. “I’ve seen it all over social media, and it’s usually monochromatic.”
Steinruck and Kuzmich say they think the matching set will be popular as a casual outfit this spring.
Baggy pants are hugely popular in winter, and looser trousers seem to still be around, according to Kuzmich.
“I think the baggy jeans trend will be around for a while, for a reason [all trends] a little back and forth, “said Kuzmich. “It’s the 2000s kind of stuff, and then it’s skinny jeans – I feel like the trend is just picking up and dropping a little.”
Steinruck says he has worn baggy jeans with a lower waistline than a high waist. He also said that trousers are also likely to be popular this spring.
“The switch from sweatpants to trousers and more to the classic business casual look seems to be popular this season,” said Steinruck. “Everyone is adjusting from really comfortable clothes to being more professional and cheerful.”
Ji Zhang said skirts and dresses are likely to appear this spring as well.
“Since the vaccine came out and the pandemic recovered, I think for some people, they might want to dress up more,” said Zhang (sophomore and English literature student). “I think when the weather is warmer, more skirts and dresses will be worn.”
Steinruck agrees – she says she’s seen more skirts too.
“I must have thought it was a miniskirt and shorts [will be worn] to show off your feet, “said Steinruck.
Overall, the big trend this spring seems to be brighter colors, matching sets, and more sustainable use of textiles and color blocking.
“Unique textiles and patterns are very popular this season,” said Streinruck.
Moving on to the summer, some students said the spring trend would be brighter in color.
“I think pastel colors, but with summer shades like orange and pink, will be popular this summer,” said DiPaolo. “I also think a lot of the runway fashion of the ’90s is being regenerated, along with platform shoes.”
Kuzmich said he thinks there will be more patterns this summer too.
“Another thing I saw on TikTok [that might be popular] Many of the patterns, “says Kuzmich,” are not very floral but a kind of ’70s vibe with stripes. “
Trending or not trending, DiPaolo says every fashion season is about finding and embracing your own personal style.
“Last spring, I was in middle school, so I didn’t really express my style as much as I do now, that’s stupid,” said DiPaolo. “I’m just getting more comfortable in clothes in general, and I feel like I’ve developed a lot of my sense of style since last spring.”
