4 Fashion Trends All Females Need To Know About Before Spring Starts

Earlier this week, we provided the guys out there with a list of the five fashion trends they should keep an eye out for this spring. But, don't worry: Ladies, we definitely didn't forget about you. The spring season is upon us—please tell us you've been outside and felt it today!—and it's time to make sure your wardrobe is just as hot as the temperature's starting to get.

With that in mind, we wanted to make sure the females out there are getting themselves (and their closets!) right for the change in season. And to help you out we came up with a list of the four fashion trends females need to be mindful of this spring. Check them out and then get ready to step your fashion game. Because you don't want the guys out there showing you up, now do you? Girl, you be killin' 'em!

 

1. Color blocking

The key to looking great this spring: More color! And not just a singular color like in years past. Instead, shirts, skirts, and springy dresses will use color blocking to maximize the brightness of the outfits that you put together. Put simply, color blocking occurs when different colors are mixed together on the same outfit using large swaths of fabric to create a stylish look. As a result, it'll be hard for people to keep their eyes off you when you step out in color blocking clothing.

2. Graphic and tribal prints

When you're not stepping out in an outfit that incorporates color blocking, there's a good chance you'll want to wear something that contains graphic and tribal prints. Like the article of clothing shown here, these prints are exactly what they sound like and they'll spice up any outfit you wear this spring and add tons of personality to any look. 

3. 1970s-inspired silhouettes/long-flowing skirts

Skip the ultra-mini skirts that have been fashionable (or, at least, popular) in the past and go with a skirt that's got some length to it. Leave a little more to the imagination this spring with a long-flowing skirt.

4. Sheer fabrics

Peek a boo! (Sorry, we just had to...) Sheer fabric is the final trend you need to know about right now. While there is a little bit of an emphasis on covering up this spring, there's still plenty of room to introduce fun, flirty looks into your wardrobe thanks to the abundance of sheer fabrics that are used in many of the clothes coming out this season. If you've never done sheer before, give it a try. And if you have? Well, you already know the deal. It's gonna be a super stylish spring—just as long as you keep these trends in mind.

The Father Of A Sandy Hook Shooting Victim Committed Suicide

The father of a first-grader killed during 2012's Sandy Hook school shooting committed suicide.

Jeremy Richman 49, was found dead inside his office space Monday morning (March 25). Local authorities said the medical examiner's office has not confirmed a cause of death.

Richman, a trained scientist, and his wife Jennifer Hensel launched the Avielle Foundation after his 6-year-old daughter Avielle Richman. The foundation is committed to providing funding for the neuroscience behind compassion and violence.

In a 2017 interview with NPR, Richman discussed the heartache he and his wife experienced in the years following Avielle's murder. “It was like a ghost limb syndrome, you know, where you keep thinking ‘Where’s Avielle? Do we need to pick her up?’” he said. “And every day you’d have this [realization] that I don’t have a child, and I don’t have to parent. That was just brutal.”

Richman also said with each new shooting, it just resurrected raw emotions.

“Right after Newtown we had the Boston bombings, and then we’ve had Charleston, Orlando and over a hundred school shootings, some of which make the national news and some don’t,” he said. “Every time this happens it breaks a heart and it chokes us up. To be honest, though, now it comes with a fair degree of frustration and anger because things aren’t changing fast enough. I really get sick of ‘thoughts and prayers,’ and ‘our hearts go out.’ That’s not going to change anything. What I need to hear is: ‘My heart is broken, and my boots are on the ground to fix it.’ ”

Father Who Also Doubles As A Sketch Artist Surprises Daughter With Stunning Portrait Of Her As Mona Lisa

The Mona Lisa has seen many variations over the years from Lego mosaics to a "Melanated Mona." The latest remix comes from a talented sketch artist who recreated the iconic painting by switching out Mona with his daughter.

On Saturday (March 23), Laurence "Sketch" Cheatham posted a video of his daughter's reaction to his homage. While using his daughter's own stunning photograph, Cheatham's elegant take almost left his daughter speechless. "That's me! Oh my gosh, I'm the Mona Lisa," she said in awe. "[This is] so cool. Thank you. Oh my gosh. How did you do that?"

In between her amazement, Sketch shared how it took three months to create his now-viral image. His talents don't stop with the new Melanated Mini Mona Lisa. A quick look at his Instagram page shows his life-like portraits of celebrities like Beyonce, Rihanna, Drake and the late Tupac Shakur.

He's also lent his talents to social justice with a poignant sketch called "The League." The image includes an angelic look at victims of unjust police killings like Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Samuel DuBose and Michael Brown.

Take a look at the adorable viral video and amazing work from Sketch below.

"The League" Please share this with your friends. I want to get this drawing out as far as it can go. Recently, I found a picture of this man holding this sign and it spoke to me. This drawing was inspired by the recent tragedy of Sandra Bland. I wanted to honor those who lost their lives and at the same time show that not everyone is racist and that we're not alone in this. Peace to Sandra Bland, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Samuel DuBose and the many others. Feel free to tag and share. #justice #sandrabland #ericgarner #samueldubose #trayvonmartin #michaelbrown #art #drawing #blacklivesmatter @caradelevingne

Lil Wayne's 1999 Rap Notebook Is On Sale For $250K

If you have $250,000 laying around and fancy yourself a Lil Wayne fan then you can own his rap notebook from 1999.

Weezy was about 17 years old and part of the beloved rap group the Hot Boys when he penned his lyrics for songs "We On Fire" and "I Feel."

The owner of the notebook told TMZ he found it inside a car once owned by Cash Money. As a dealership employee, he rummaged through the backseat and located the prized possession.

Photos of the notebook show water damage, which the owner said was nearly destroyed during Hurricane Katrina.

The notebook was stored in a box in his garage and when the Category 5 storm hit, he evacuated. When he returned much of his belongings were destroyed except for the book. Moments In Time will reportedly handle the sale of the rare find.

Moments In Time has sold several hip-hop artifacts. In 2017, the company sold three pages in which the beloved rapper penned the lyrics to his classic "Dear Mama." Each page priced at $25,000. The company also sold the vehicles Biggie and Pac were killed in.

Weird flex, but okay.
