Spring is in the Air!!

By Ashley Harris

With New York Fashion Week coming to an end, it’s safe to say that I’ve been thinking about what trends I need to be shopping for this spring. Since I don’t plan on walking the runway anytime soon, I thought of some ways to easily incorporate four of spring’s biggest trends into my everyday apparel.

Pretty Pastels
Pastels are huge for spring and there
are plenty of ways to incorporate this trend into your everyday apparel. My favorite garment for spring are Comfort Colors pocket T-shirts. They are so comfortable and come in plenty of great colors. While I wouldn’t consider them to be true pastels, they still offer plenty of colorful yet washed out shades. I promise, you can’t go wrong with this garment!

Extra Tip: Choose a design that uses pastel colors or a lot of white and it will be sure to add that extra bit of bright spring pop to your look. 

Show Some Skin
It’s spring, time to finally show some skin. Let me tell you, nothing tops these great athletic shorts made by Boxercraft. Constructed of 100% polyester they feature an inside tie cord, hidden key pocket and built in support briefs. If you get them in a neutral color they can go with practically anything. 

Want to step it up a notch? Add a monogram! It’s an easy way to take them from “athletic shorts” to “everyday shorts”. They come in a large range of colors and will be a great addition to your spring wardrobe.

Go for Grey
Grey is a great color choice for spring. It is brighter than black, but not as much of a summer look as white. It is also sure to make a statement, whether used with a custom screen print, embroidery thread color, applique (better known as block letters for Greeks), or for the garment itself. 

This Bella Flowy T-shirt is made to be comfortable and fashionable. Its relaxed fit has drop sleeve design making it a perfect tee for casual wear. 

Shown here with a Delta Delta Delta design. Let us customize your T-shirt order for you making grey your neutral color for spring. You won’t be disappointed.

Blooming Floral
I know we are all looking forward to the flowers blooming this spring, so why not create some blooms of your own? The perfect way to add some floral into your looks are through your designs. 

If you are looking to create a t-shirt using appliques or Greek block letters, add a Lily Pulitzer or Vera Bradley inspired print to the mix. You could do the same for a screen printed T-shirt. 

In this example we custom cut the two color Greek Block letters that were then stitched to the T-shirt. Just think how cute your spring break or spring bid day shirts could be with some blooms! 

To the right is a Comfort Colors tank in Citrus color. The Greek Block letters compliment the shirt perfectly. These were a huge hit with Alpha Chi Omega and could be customized for your sorority letters.
