Time to put away the gloves and parkas.  The hour’s been set ahead and spring’s just around the corner so let’s figure out what’s blooming in this season’s trends.  Plus we’ve found some great finds from one of our go to curvy girl shopping sites, ASOS.

After seasons of skinny jeans and 80s and 90s inspirations, it’s time to look even further back into the looser silhouetted 70s. Pull out those flares, invest in a flowy dress. Let your hair hang!

Try these ASOS Matelot Flare Jeans.

And don’t forget to keep a long let it all flow maxi dress as a staple in your wardrobe this summer.

Or if that’s too long, there’s nothing wrong with a tunic.

For full on 70s glam, pick up a playful jumpsuit.

Make a statement with lace. And it doesn’t have to be a meek, wallflower statement either. The spring runways were overrun with laced fabrics and they evoked everything from the polite, proper schoolgirl to the edgy punk chick whose lace embellishments helped to up her cool ante.

If being sweet is your tune, try this waisted peter pan number. Perfect for that summer walk in the park.

But what if you want to be a little naughty? For a sexy night out, slip into this curve hugging one sleeved dress.


And for something in between, how about this Paprika dress with lace details and cut out lace detailing in the back. Now that’s what we call a nice surprise!

Get a little funky with this lace trim shift.

And if you want to keep the lace to a lovely little minimum, there’s nothing wrong with this little black dress that avoids being boring with its collared lace flourishes.

Or if you want to do lace with your jeans, how about pairing this delicate bed jacket over a cami for that breezy soft touch.

Another option if you want to tone down the trend- this tace trimmed trapeze top. Perfect with a pair of skinny jeans.

Cardigans aren’t immune either from the trend!


Bold colors and color blocking scream confident woman who knows how to have fun! Try on these looks if you’re looking to compete with the summer sun for cheerful, inviting brightness.


This striped maxi dress brings out the laidback summer chick in all of us!

We love the color blocking, and the pleats add an interesting polite twist to the whole affair.


And these color block number evokes easy youthfulness.


For more interesting color contrasting geometry.
