With Spring being only a few days away, it’s time to start prepping our wardrobe for the season change. Here is a round up of the top 10 fashion trends for Spring 2013.
(Oscar De La Renta, Michael Kors, TopShop)
Strips are literally everywhere! From the runways of Lanvin to Michael Kors, this trend will add a cool and casual touch to your spring wardrobe. Weather you decide to choose horizontal or vertical stripes, thats strictly up to you but remember to choose wisely. Horizontals will make you look wider while vertical stripes will elongate your body.
(Gucci, Gucci, Chloe)
Ruffles are not only girly and fun but super fabulous! If you are looking to make a stunning statement this spring, pick up a few pieces and remember, with this trend bigger is better!!!
Black and White
(Givenchy, Alexander Wang, Jason Wu)
When someone thinks of spring, floral prints and pastels usually comes to mind but not in 2013! This year, designers are all about black and white (ok, some floral and pastels too but you get my drift). This trend is extremely sleek and easy to pull off. Wheather you are at the office or on a hot date, this trend will carry you through.
Leather in the spring? Absolutely! A luxe leather piece is essential to your spring shopping list. This sturdy fabric comes in ligher weights and rich colors just for warmer weathers. Oh and remember, leather is an investment item so not only will they be great for the spring but they are also great trabsitional pieces for the other seasons as well.
Regardless if its animal, floral or global, prints are a must have in every fashionistas wardrobe this spring. You can mix and match them for a funky look or if you are a little more reserved, wear just a print dress or one piece with a solid item.
(Derek Lam, Peter Som, Balenciaga)
If you’re a fitness nut or just simply blessed with great abs, cropped tops are for you! You can rock them with anything from boyfriend jeans to high waisted skirts. Fab!
(Rag & Bone, DKNY, Chloe)
These slouchy shorts are ultra chic and very flattering. They are perfect for fashionistas of every shape and size. Paired with a cute top and your favorite flats for a very cool spring look!
Flats and Low Heels
(Peter Som, Marc Jacobs, Peter Som)
Ok lets be honest, high heels will always be sexy (I am definitely a fan of those 5 inch stunners) but back in style again in a big way are flats and low heels. What I love about these heels are the fact that they provide a nice option to have especially during the daytime. They come in all colors and pattern so they will compliment any spring outfit. So why not leave those uncomfortable high heels for night time fun and choose a more practical and comfortable shoe (still stylish!) for the day?
(Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Matthew Williamson)
This look was all over the runways here in New York. It’s very versatile and office-appropriate, and the best part? It comes in all price points!
(Chado Ralph Rucci, Christopher Kane, Emilio Pucci)
And last but definitely not least, the sheer panel trend. This look is ultra feminine and gives you a sexy look and a beautiful silhouette without being too sexy. Sheer panels can be found in pants, dresses, tops etc. Paired with a solid piece, this look will work for both days and night.
So now that you know what the top trends are, it should make it easier for you to update your wardrobe and enter Spring…fashionably. Till next time 🙂
