Cheers & Sparkles for SPRING!

Your senior portraits tell that story of this time you’re in right now. And to look back + show your children someday…Show them for nostalgia’s sake and for some giggles, looking back at the popular trends of the day. That is most definitely part of your high school story!

Nostalgia…You’re gorgeous smile in that sheer black top

Good Giggle… TWO WORDS – Parachute pants {may they never return to the style rotation}

I am always here to help fashion up your wardrobe for your senior pictures, Howevaaaa, if you’re just looking for 5 new spring trends to try out I’ve got your styles in this post today. I keep my eye on the trendy + classic outfits that can help you express your style + personality. And I love to shop😉

I tell my Hubs it’s for my business {and that’s partly true}, but he also knows that in the urban dictionary next to “Retail Therapy” there could be a photo of me with my shopping bags.

SMP Side Note:: If the current trends or styles don’t fit your personality no big thing! You do you and make your own style! I’m here to photograph YOUR one-of-a-kind senior story!

Alrighty then…On to the fashion show!

1/ Graphic Tees

These have been on the fashion radar awhile, and they’re back again for spring. The reason they keep popping back is because they are so versatile. They have quirky + fun sayings. They are great to wear alone with shorts, or under a jacket with jeans. You see them EVERYWHERE, but with so many different designs you can express your own unique style.

Do you want to support small + local businesses in this trend? I’ve got you styled {well, they’ll get you styled}::

SMP Style Idea:: Pair a graphic tee with distressed jeans + colorful sneakers for a casual, fun everyday look.

I’ve done an entire shoot with inspirational graphic tees ➠ The “Inspiration is T” post shows you all the fun.

2/ Wrap Skirts

The Who What Wear site did a neat twist on the 2021 Spring fashion list and included wrap skirts, which I’m totally on-board with this season. Short or long, solid or patterned, this drops into the MUST HAVE category this Spring. I love Emma’s black gingham skirt she picked for one of her outfits.

SMP Style Idea:: Check out all the wrap skirt + urban styles on my High School Senior Girl Pinterest Board

One stylist in the article wrote her opinion that wrap skirts are in – holes in your shirts are out. And that’s the beauty in fashion…One girls love of holy shirts is another gals cold breeze nightmare. {and I said, “nightmare” in that Brooklyn accent Marisa Tomei used in My Cousin Vinny.}

Can you hear her too?

3/ Floral Prints Big + Small are BACk!

They are EVERYWHERE! And they add a soft touch to your jeans, sparkle up a dress, and dress-up a t-shirt. Where do I begin to show you all the places to find this versatile trend?

Always + always, in one of the local boutiques I linked above. {Shop small now, so it doesn’t disappear later}

But you can also find some light, balloon sleeve ones at Target + Forever 21 right now.

Think pastel colors mixed with leggings or shorts + accent with beaded bracelets. In The Grove Designs makes the cutest personalized bracelets.

SMP Style Tip:: When picking out your floral, think about what colors flatter you best. Florals can get busy, don’t let them overpower you


The polka dot tank dress or drape-style tunic with bohemian flair is one of the 5 trends you need for spring. This flowing tunic dress below runs short, so it looks great as a longer top or short dress The flowy sleeve looks perfect on longer-armed gals.

SMP Style Tip:: Pair this with an over the knee boot for spring, or a sandal for summer for an on-trend look.

5/ Go Pink

The easiest of the 5 trends you need for Spring is the color pink! If you’re looking for bright + cheery this Spring that look no further then all the pink out there in shirts, T’s, shorts, dresses, accessories…

If you’re not quite ready to get a bold palette, you can add peeks of the color to your outfit collection. Grab a pink bandana, or hat with pink lettering.
