Spring is just around the corner (uhh next week hello? Where has 2018 gone?) Spring is by far my favorite season, and we’ve already started to get a little taste of warmer weather here in Austin. My favorite part of a new season starting is all the new trends to try out. I’ve rounded up all of my favorite spring trends for 2018 and breaking down my picks for you.


This is probably my favorite of the trends – sheer everything please.



Might not be the most comfortable look as the weather gets warmer, but satin has a classic and elegant look to it that can step up any outfit.



Smocked pieces always have a playful and childlike feel to me, which is one of the reasons I love this look for spring.



Gimme all the metallics, all the time.



I definitely think this trend will die out faster than others, but I’m loving the look right now.



Notable colors for the season: dusty pastels, bold prints, lavender, red & pink combo and “gen Z yellow” (Is it really the next millennial pink?)



I might sprain my ankle again in some of these, but I’ll look good doing it at least. Chunky “Dad” sneakers are also in- dig out your Skechers for some Balenciaga vibes.


Keep an eye out for fringe, square necklines, punk styles and the 90s making a major comeback as well this season. I don’t know about you, but so far I’m loving all of these trends and super excited for spring to begin. What are your favorite spring trends this year? Let me know on my latest insta!



Fall Trends | The Lipstick Tales

Off the shoulder top | Off the shoulder romper | Lace choker | Jeweled choker | Victorian top | Layered slip dress | Ruffled sweater | Ruffled dress | Velvet sandals | Faux fur vest | Booties | Saddle bag | Floral Dress

Fall doesn’t start for almost another 2 weeks, and it will still feel like summer for at least another month here in Texas, but I couldn’t help getting excited about all the upcoming fall trends! Although I personally prefer spring as far as seasons go, I am looking forward to not being judged for being “out of season” with dark lips and black nail polish. All of the fall trends I found while researching are right up my alley style-wise, so you can bet I’ll start wearing these as soon as possible! I decided to make a little guide of all my favorite trends even though it’s still a bit early so you have some insight to how to prep your wardrobe for the new season.

Good news for all of you choker lovers, this trend isn’t going away anytime soon. I’ve been eyeing more embellished looking chokers lately, like this one and this one, especially since embellished and adorned pieces are going to be big for fall too. Off the shoulder tops have been in for a while, but they are going to be having an even bigger moment this fall. Considering fall is still pretty warm here in Texas, I’m sure this trend will be seen for a while!

Faux fur seems to always be big for fall, but keep an eye out for fur that makes a statement in fun colors and patterns. Textures will be important this fall, and these velvet sandals are my absolute favorite product on this board! I have these that are similar and they are the most comfortable heels I’ve ever owned.

Overall, these trends don’t necessarily scream “fall,” much like the seasonal trends we’re used to. I’m definitely looking forward to layering pieces in new and fun ways and can’t wait until the weather starts to cool down here. A few other trends to look for include metallic touches, suiting, velvet everything, plaid, and shearling.

Which fall trend is your favorite?
