Spring 2013 promises to be a season filled with fierce fashion and bold styles. And now that the start of the spring season is upon us, it’s time to shelve those winter wears and opt for a more bold and brighter future. Here are five of my favorite trends for spring.
|Earn your stripes (and rock em!)Stripes, one of the hottest trends for 2013, were all the rage on fashion runways. This geometric gem is a year-round favorite and designers everywhere are incorporating bold stripes into their spring lineup in a huge way. And with so many styles and colors to choose from this fashionista fave will likely be THE look for the season.STYLE TIP: Black & white stripes can be flattering to most figures, so consider opting for this contrastingly chic duo when rockin this trend.|
|Make a statementStatement pieces have always been on the top of my list of season must haves. And with bold neutrals hitting shelves this spring a well placed statement piece can quickly turn any look from OK to OMG in an instant.|
|Lovely in laceI’m absolutely in love with the lace trend! This lady-like fabric is making a chic comeback for spring so be sure to incorporate lots of lovely lace into your ensemble.STYLE TIP: Be careful not to go overboard with too many contrasting lace pieces at once. After all, you don’t want your outfit to look too busy, or —even worst— looking like a placemat at Grandma’s dinner table.|
|Fabulous floral printsAnother one of this season’s hottest trends, floral prints are sprouting up everywhere! Florals are brighter, bolder, and in full bloom this spring, so show off your flower power and add some pretty petal print pieces to your wardrobe. Try saying THAT fast!STYLE TIP: Go big or go home! Not only does a big floral print make a statement but it just looks fabulous! Also try mixing bold florals with solids or stripes. This will help break up the botanicals and still give you enough bloom without looking like you just stepped out of a greenhouse.|
|The bold & the beautifulWhat’s spring fashion without a splash of color? Posh pastels are a no-brainer for spring, but this season show off a bit of your fearless side and opt for a deeper yet brighter shade instead. Bold and bright tones dominated the runways so adding haute hues will keep you on trend and looking fab all season long.|
