Spring Fashion Trends with the Charlotte Today Show


Spring weather is starting to arrive here in Charlotte...albeit very slowly!  I hope you are enjoying some nice weather wherever you are.  Speaking of spring, on my most recent segment on the Charlotte Today show, I highlighted some of the hot fashion trends for spring.  If you are new around here, I am an occasional fashion contributor on the Charlotte Today show which airs every weekday on NBC.  I really enjoy going on the show and am so thankful that they keep asking me back!

I recruited 4 friends to be models for the segment and three of them are blogger babes here in Charlotte.  Miranda from Miranda in Charlotte (Instagram & Blog), Anna from Peppered In Style (Instagram & Blog) & Rachel from Queen City Chic (Instagram).  I have linked their Instagrams and blogs so you can give them a follow!  My friend Andrea (who is not a blogger) was the fourth fabulous model.

I partnered with a local boutique, Lizard Thicket, to provide clothes for me and the models.  They have a great selection of affordable clothes, accessories and shoes and I love that they have pieces that you won't find anywhere else.  Lizard Thicket is located at Blakeney Shopping Center in South Charlotte and they also ship for those of you who are not local.


We shared a variety of spring looks that incorporate some of the hottest trends in fashion for the season.  One trend we are seeing this spring is EMBROIDERY.  My beautiful embroidered dress that I wore from Lizard Thicket is a great example of this trend.  Embroidery can be incorporated in to many pieces you wear - tops, dresses, skirts and even shoes!  I found some affordable embroidered pieces online HERE, HERE & HERE.


We are seeing florals everywhere for spring and a FLORAL MAXI SKIRT is such a versatile piece.  You can pair it with a tee and denim jacket like Andrea did here, and wear it with a tank as it warms up.  Andrea's entire outfit is from Lizard Thicket, and I found some other affordable floral maxi skirts HERE & HERE.  


TWO-PIECE SETS are popular this spring, and I love this one that Rachel wore during the segment. Sets like this will keep you nice and cool as it warms up and they are easy to mix and match with other items. Rachel could wear her top with jeans or a denim skirt and pair the skort with a t-shirt.  Her set came from Lizard Thicket & I found a set online HERE.  


I love this dress that Miranda wore from Lizard Thicket during the TV segment.  It incorporates the floral trend that is always popular this time of year, as well as another trend I am loving - RUFFLES!  Ruffles on a dress or top add a touch of femininity to any piece and you can go subtle or bold when wearing them.   I found some cute ruffle dresses online HERE & HERE.  


Anna featured several spring trends in her look.  NEON, GRAPHIC TEES & FLARE JEANS are all really popular right now.   Neon is popping up everywhere lately and you can find it in tops, sweaters and even shoes.  Anna's entire outfit, including her neon green cardigan, is from Lizard Thicket, and I found some affordable neon items HERE & HERE.  Graphic tees have been popular for a while and the trend doesn't seem to be dying down any time soon.  I found some options HERE & HERE.  The last trend I wanted to highlight for spring is flare jeans.  You can find them in white like Anna is wearing, as well as the traditional blue denim.  Flares can be very flattering and help elongate the legs, which I am all for!  Check out some flare options HERE & HERE.
