The Best Spring Fashion Trends For Your Student Wardrobe

Zoe Kramer January 19, 2023

In these cold months, there’s nothing better than looking forward to the promise of a sunny spring. And what better way to feed that anticipation than planning what to wear? There’s a sense of escapism in browsing items for warmer weather when it’s still bitterly chilly outside. Plus, you have the added bonus that when spring does finally roll around, you’ll be all set with a wardrobe ready to go. So here are some of the best spring fashion trends to look for as you shop.

Sheer Layers

Sheer fabrics have been in for a while now, but they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. This is great news for anyone who already has some sheer pieces in their wardrobe. It’s breathable, layerable, and can be used in many artistic ways, so it’s no wonder this type of fabric is so popular. It’s great for outer layers of tops and skirts.

Asymmetrical Skirts

Another great addition to your student wardrobe this spring is an asymmetrical skirt. These drapey skirts can vary in length from mini to maxi size, but always create a super unique and interesting shape that’s flattering on all body types. You can find one as part of a dress or pair it with a tank or halter top.

Another spring fashion trend to incorporate into your wardrobe is sequins. Sequins have gone in and out of favour for decades, but what’s really so bad about a bit of sparkle? Sequins are a great way to add some pizzazz to your wardrobe for spring. A sequinned dress is perfect for a celebration or a night on the town. That is, if you can keep yourself distracted from all the lights you cast everywhere as a walking disco ball.


Pastel colours are a little more traditional for a spring wardrobe, but this year is all about silver. And what better way to wear it than as a fun and shiny top for clubbing? You can take inspiration from the faux armor that’s all the rage or keep it simple and classic. Metallics aren’t always the easiest to wear, but they can be truly stunning when you pull them off.

Pockets, Pockets and More Pockets

Womenswear and pockets don’t have the best history. Whether it’s a conspiracy to get women to buy more bags or simply a stylistic choice, most women’s pants have shallow, barely usable pockets, if they even have pockets at all. So the return of cargo pants is very much welcome.
