Spring is right around the corner, temperatures are creeping up, and consumers are itching to put away their winter coats (even though it’s still freezing in a good chunk of the US). From Mardi Gras to spring cleaning to casserole recipes, there’s no shortage of seasonal trends for brands and influencers to incorporate into their content calendars this coming month.
