Spring 2013 Trend Report

So I usually am not one to necesarilly “follow” all the upcoming trends to every season. Its more about taking whats popular and “in” and adapting it to your style and aesthetic. You can use pieces that you already have in your closet (sparing your wallet) and just splurge on particular items that really pop out for the season (ex. a really great pair of on trend pants that can be paired multiple times). Here are some of my favorite trends for Spring 2013.

Checkered/Diamond Print

Seen all over the runways, this trend is classic yet still made modern by combining it with structured fits and bright bold colors.

You can style this look in bold dress form or in a more subtle version with a checkered top, solid print blazer and jeans.

Leather

Leather is transitioning its way from fall attire well into spring 2013 with newer styles and cuts to choose from. Keep it light weight with different brighter tones (neutral or even red leather works) and take advantage of the warm weather by incorporating the popular cut out look.

Florals

It wouldnt be spring without the incorporation of some florals. After all april showers do really bring may flowers! Pair them with neutrals for a flirty casual feel, or mix and match different floral prints for a different spin on the classic.

Black and White

Although its an unsual concept, the stark contrast provides a fresh new visual look for the season. Any shape or cut works as long as the color combo remains intact. Try a color blocked top that already incorporates the trend, or pair your own separate pieces for a cohesive look.

Black & White Georgette Top- Forever 21 $17.80

Spring into this seasons trends!

  1. I really love the garden floral infinity scarf from Charlotte Russe in your post and almost bought it last year. (Kicking myself now for not) Did you purchase it? If so let me know if you are willing to part with it and I would love to buy it from you!

    Thanks
