With spring in full swing, it’s time to get your head in this season’s style game. Luckily, we’ve rounded up six strategies for mastering all of the season’s trends, inspired by looks seen on Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Bosworth, Louise Roe and more of your favorite celebrity style-setters. Take a page out of our spring fashion playbook, and you’ll be sure to hit the mark this season.
Spring Trend #1: Beading
If winter was sequin central, this season is all about beading. Iridescent and delicate-looking, beading gives your look a touch of refinement. Look for embellished pieces like the beautifully beaded peach-colored Valentino dress that Jennifer Lawrence wore to the Hollywood Reporter event honoring Academy Award nominees this year. She looked like a breath of fresh air with this soft coloring and subtle shimmer from head to toe.

Spring Trend #2: Black and White
Spring might conjure thoughts of pastel Easter egg hues, but this season’s hottest color combination is actually more like a lack thereof. Black and white is dominating the celebrity color palette, as Hailee Steinfeld demonstrated at the Coach benefit for the Children’s Defense Fund. We love the way she made a black pleated BCBG skirt more seasonally-appropriate with a white mesh Topshop shell and white Coach sandals.

Spring Trend #3: Abstract Prints
Louise Roe actually put two spring trends together at the Bulgari event honoring Elizabeth Taylor—graphic striping, a carry-over trend from winter, and this season’s craze for abstract prints. Her BCBGMaxAzria dress featured a monarch-like orange print and was given a futuristic feel with a white leather harness detail. Go for dresses, skirts and pants in a mosaic of this season’s chaotic prints—and don’t be afraid to combine them!
Spring Trend #4: Metallic Accessories
This spring, go for the gold and incorporate metallics into your outfit through shiny accessories. Metallic shoes, like the pumps Jennifer Lawrence was wearing when she was snapped leaving Nizomi Restaurant, are especially on-point and add instant polish to any outfit. Snap up a pair of heels and flats in heavy metal so that you can easily work the look for both daytime and evening.

Spring Trend #5: Two-Piece Sets
Kate Bosworth put a look from her own collaboration with Topshop in the spotlight at Coachella, and showed her spring style know-how in the process. Two-piece sets, like the cream-colored, laser-cut suede tank top and shorts she wore, are a must-have for your spring wardrobe. Falling somewhere between a sundress and a shorts suit, this look is put-together enough for a dressier event but easy enough to just throw on and head out the door with a pair of sunglasses as your only accessory.
Spring Trend #6: See-Through Bags
Solange Knowles is always on-trend, and her look at the Diesel Edun Studio Africa event in L.A. was no exception. The singer wore printed Edun shorts and a blouse by Theyskens Theory, but what really elevated her outfit to noteworthy status was her bright orange lucite CC Skye clutch. See-though bags are a hot item this season, and a conversation-starting way to add interest to your look—just be sure to only pack things you’re OK with showing off!
