Thigh High Dresses with Over Dresses.
Hem lines are getting shorter, but that doesn’t mean you have to be immodest about it when shooting for a badass outfit for spring. But, how do you achieve this look?
- An under dress or skirt that comes to mid-thigh or higher.
- A sheer over dress that has a longer hem line. Lace or sheer linen work well.
- Keep it monochrome. Make sure both top and bottom layers are within the same color family.
- Accessorize with color. Wear a brightly colored heel or jewelry to polish off this look.
Waist Cincher Fashion.
Embellishing the smallest part of your body is one of the most badass fashion moves you can make. But, that is more the case with trending waist cincher fashion.
- Pick your layers. Choose a simple skirt or jeans and wear your corset as a top.
- Once you pick your base layers, pick out either a thin corset for an elegant line or a thicker waist cincher for a bolder look.
- Accessorize to play up the corset. Use complimentary colors to your cincher to draw attention to it.

Whether you’re in the army or just like a little bit of edge, army inspired looks are in this spring.
- Camouflage is a staple. Choose the right tones for your skin when looking for a good piece.
- Accentuate the pattern with solids in complimentary colors with your accessories.
- A spiked or studded boot goes well with this badass outfit.
Strappy Heels and Gladiator Sandals.
It isn’t often that I’d tell you to center your outfit on shoes, but there’s nothing more badass than a gladiator or their sandals. These strappy sandals can easily be paired with a dress, skirts, or shorts. They stand out and can dominate a look. When dressing around your gladiator sandals, make sure to pair it with neutral accessories, and for a bold look, stick to a monochrome look.
Sports are popular, and in their own right, badass. But, there’s nothing more badass than a woman who’s secure enough to dress in sports inspired fashion when the trend hits the market this spring. Whether you’re dressing for football, baseball, or even if you want to take on a skater edge; it’s a great tomboy look that makes any woman look badass.
90’s Necklines are back.
Neck lines are often times ignored when it comes to dressing for spring. Usually you’re thinking about the dress or the top that you want to add to your wardrobe and not the neckline style. But, this year 90’s necklines are back and are making a statement in a badass way. These classic and classy neck lines can easily be paired with chunky chokers or other accessories to liven them up.
Fray the Edges.
Frayed edges and worn hems have been popular for years, and this spring 2015 is no exception. In fact, frayed shorts are all the rage when paired with an oversized sweater and cami for a hipster chic look.
Puppet on a String.
Strings have made it to the top 25 list of must-have trends for spring fashion on New York Fashion week. And by strings, I mean anything with seemingly useless strands of cloth that hang and bob and weave as you move. These can be found in the form of dresses, shorts, skirts, or graphic tees that have been altered to have a visual interest with strings attached. Of course, pairing your fringe accented clothing with neutrals or other textures will be important.

Bermuda shorts make a Comeback.
You may not need to vacation to the Bahamas to get this look, but you’ll feel like you’re vacationing when you add a trendy Bermuda short into your chic new look. Pair it with an oversized graphic T, tank top, or a flannel top and you’re ready to hit the streets in this casual look.
Asian Flair with Kimonos.
Asian fashion is back in this spring, and that means that kimonos are all the rage. But, that doesn’t mean you have to wear a traditional kimono to have a badass outfit. In fact, there are kimono inspired dresses and tops that pair well with leggings or tights as well.
Stripes are everywhere.
Stripes are a staple, but it seems that they are a huge focus this spring. While they’re intimidating at first, there is no reason to fear wearing stripes of all shapes and styles, especially when you treat them like a neutral. They can be paired with just about any outfit that you can think of and will help to create a cohesive and badass look.

Polka Dots and Spots.
Spots and dots are everywhere with this classic print. Whether you want to rock it like a rockabilly or prefer to dress it down for a casual look; dots are in and can be worn in any aspect of your outfit. If you’re feeling a little bolder, try an all-over print dress. If you’re still a little too timid to go all out, pick up some polka dot accessories such as chunky bangles or a necklace.
Beat the Rain With Ponchos.
Ponchos are a great way to get a boho chic look while out in the rain. Layering is a traditional and beloved way of dressing for spring, but trendy ponchos are a great way to create an overall badass look.
Patches everywhere! Whether you’re creating a DIY project or prefer to purchase your outfit pre-made, patches are an amazing way to add a little flair to an already awesome outfit. Patchwork is a solid trend this spring.

While an all white outfit was in for the winter season, another trend-rocking fashion statement is a monochromatic black look. Take different textures, shades, and styles of black and layer it on thick for a badass and edgy look.
Fringe, you love to hate it or you love it without complaint. It can however be seen in this fashion line up for this spring. It has an interesting visual appearance that helps to create texture in just about any look. If you pair a fringe shrug over that sleek little black dress you’ve created a whole new edgy outfit that you can wear out on the town.

Floral is King.
Floral prints are a staple no matter the season, but bold and abstract floral prints are definitely in this year. From painteresque pansies to richly colored roses, layering an edgy floral dress with some leather accents is a great way to get a well balanced outfit.
Jeans, they’re a staple. But, denim isn’t just confined to the world of loose fitted, skinny, or boot cut. Denim is making a comeback in a big way with vests, skirts, and many other wardrobe staples that can be paired with just about any pattern or solid you can think of.
