Spring fashion trends — where do we start?
As with most years, the Spring 2018 runway shows shocked and awed but left us with one big question: it looked amazing on the runway but how can I wear that in real life? And do I even want to?
According to Glamour, wearing bike shorts with pretty much everything is “‘90s-Meets-Kardashian”. While exposed shorts may look great on the runway and a few of our favorite Kardashians/Jenners, it’s not one of the spring trends we want to wear to the office or incorporate in our everyday life.
We studied the trends, separated the “hell nos” from the “maybes” and “love its” and then looked to a few of our favorite style experts (otherwise known as our favorite Instagrammers) to see what spring trends they chose to follow and how they wore them. They didn’t fail us when we previously looked to them for advice on outerwear trends, and we have full confidence in them now as well.
Here’s a roundup of our favorite (realistic) spring fashion trends and how to incorporate them into your everyday wardrobe:

What goes around comes around … Fringe adorned the closets of some of our favorite ‘70s style icons and made a slight comeback in the ‘90s, so it should come as no surprise that it’s back with a vengeance this season. We saw hints of its reemergence in 2017 but it is in full force now.

And yes, fringed denim counts, too (duh), as Lorna of symphonyofsilk showed us back in 2016:
