With inflation still looming, comfort, DIY and fun (yes, fun!) take center stage with these spring trends.
10 Spring Trends Made for Loving
Some trends, for better or worse, never change. Among them: spring cleaning. Take it up about 100 notches in the convenience department with Roomba’s new Combo j7+. It’s the world’s first hands-free 2-in-1 vacuum and mop robot that identifies and avoids obstacles like pet waste and cords so there’s less pick-up needed before cleaning starts. Plus, it will cut down on the need to hire cleaners and nack significant others about how they’re not doing their household chores.
Selfcare continues to be a big trend and while we all wish daily professional massages were realistic, that isn’t typically the case. Instead, this season it’s about “small luxuries” like Sockwell. The brand makes socks to provide bunion relief, help with plantar fasciitis, reduce swelling or simply to add everyday comfort – and they come in classic as well as fun, seasonal prints.
We’re the first to admit that some days falling head first into a Costco-size bag of something we rather not be eating is inevitable. If we’re going to stress eat, however, let’s at least have healthy(ish) snacks on hand.
This year has seen the launch of countless amazing ones, like LesserEvil’s Space Balls. We have a particular sweet-spot for starting with a handful of savory Interstellar Cheddar (non-dairy and organic) followed by sweet Cinnamon Sugar Stardust because… balance, right?
Home decor doesn’t need to be pricey. There are plenty of fun, creative and even customized ways to add life and personality into your home this spring.
Case and point Stickerapp, which allows you to make custom stickers, labels and decals starting at just $10. We love using them to have photos of loved ones or artwork from our children scattered around the home in unique ways.
Speaking of custom, Poolside is the trendy St. Barts-inspired brand beloved by celebrities like Gwyneth Palthrow, Romee Strijd and Emily Ratajkowski and their French market totes embellished with cheeky pop culture references are the perfect investment piece to stay on trend this spring and beyond. We’re partial to the XXL size, which can be customized with up to 30 characters.
You won’t miss your coffee run one bit with the illy Electric Milk Frother, which can turn your boring ‘ol drip into a gourmet creation. It can even make hot chocolate with the touch of a button along with hot or cold foamed milk or simple warm steamed milk.
Meal prep has become part of the modern day vernacular. Whether you’re doing it for school lunches, the office or for your post-gym nosh we love the b.box lunchbox.
It was designed with kids in mind, so it’s the ultimate in leakproof (i.e. perfect for a bag that will be thrown around), it has multiple compartments including ones large enough to hold a sandwich or a whole piece of fruit (including an apple or banana) and a “wet section” with a silicone seal to prevent spills.
Plus, a removable tray, an included ice pack and removable slider to give more compartment options.
We could certainly all use some sparkle right about now, which explains the rise of the disco ball handbag trend. Add a dash of effortless sparkle to just about any after-dark outfit with a standout style from Khaite, the Olivia Crystal-Embellished Suede Tote.
Budgeting is a major factor driving trends this season and Windsor Vineyards makes it easy to give a thoughtful gift even when counting coins. Use their complimentary custom labels to dress up any bottle of wine, starting at just $12.
This spring a confidence boosting uniform will certainly include stirrup pants. Popularized by the likes of Victoria Beckham, they can easily be dressed up or down for a pulled together yet relaxed look that’s perfect for this in-between season. We’re loving LESET’s version, Rio High-Rise Slim Stirrup Pants, because of the comfortable elastic waistband and flattering slim leg.
