Spring is the time of new beginnings, so what better time for trying out a fresh new look? Cultivating a new look doesn’t need to mean buying a whole wardrobe of new clothes, current trends are just that- trends, and were once a trend before and will be again. Recycling your old clothes into new outfits rather than excess buying is a great step towards sustainability. Here are some probably-own-already ideas to incorporate into your new aesthetic this spring, and how Uufey shoes can match your spring style to bring you fresh fashion with orthotic comfort.
Trend 1: Never say no to neutrals
Neutrals have risen in trend over the last few years with shades of beige, cream, brown, pink, and grey being popular neutral colours to build a small but interchangeable wardrobe. Minimalism and capsule wardrobes have become increasingly popular lifestyle choices for sustainability and have lent to the rise of colour-coordinated aesthetics from monochrome and now to neutrals. Colour-coordinating an aesthetic means clothing can be mix-and-matched, giving outfit versatility without a huge collection of different pieces. Neutrals are a perfect new look for spring after winter hues. Pair our Chemin Grey Orthotic Trainers with a beige monochrome outfit for an on-trend neutral look that gives all-day comfort and a warm spring feel.
Trend 2: 2000’s Nostalgia
The early 2000s trends have been making a comeback 20 years later as Gen Z and young millennials take on the style of their childhood, bringing some forgotten styles back into the latest looks. The early 2000s style was experimental, fun, and colourful, so is it any surprise that in the new ‘anything goes’ fashion culture of today that it’s making a re-emergence? Low rise jeans and embroidered denim, as well as tie-front tops and co-ord outfits, were all seen in early 2000s celebrity street styles that are back in for 2022. Tie-front cardigans are a perfect spring look and a great way to add some nostalgia to an outfit, and low-rise and wide jeans can add some 2000s chic to a modern look. For more inspiration, think early 2000s Gwen Stefani, J.LO and the members of Destiny’s Child.
Here at Uufey, we think our Sarah Zest Ankle Boot is a perfect matchup for a nostalgia inspired look. With a utility boot design, this classic style has been around since long before the 2000s and its timeless appeal made it through then and beyond. The early 2000s footwear was all about colour, chunky soles and stand out style, and Sarah Zest has all of these. Match Sarah Zest with wide-leg jeans and a tie-front cardigan for all-day supportive comfort and a cute, throwback fit.
Trend 3: Bringing back blazers
A classic blazer is a great outwear choice for spring that can take you from preppy to a more unique and original look depending on your outfit. Classic and timeless choices never truly leave the fashion sphere, but they make a bold ascension from time to time. Big blazers are the next thing from 2022, a natural progression from the oversized streetwear and shoulder pad outfits as seen over the last few years.
Cill Cut-Out Bootie is the perfect addition for a blazer outfit, Cill is a bootie built for style and comfort, giving sensitive feet cushioning and support. The brown leather and suede classic cut-out ankle boot style match any preppy and structured outfit whilst adding a modernising look with a thick rubber sole designed for stability. Wear an oversized blazer over ripped jeans with Cill Bootie for a fashion-forward preppy and grunge style fusion.
Whatever your aesthetic choice, Uufey’s footwear range with modern classic designs and orthotic comfort will have a shoe or boot for you and whatever your footwear needs.
