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.
Seen all over the runways, this trend is classic yet still made modern by combining it with structured fits and bright bold colors.
Forever 21 $8.80
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 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.
Faux Leather Cut out Crop top- Forever 21 $19.80
Leather Effect Shorts- Zara $60
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.
Scalloped Hem Floral Shorts- Charlotte Russe $24.99
Garden Floral Infinity Scarf-Charlotte Russe $9.99
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
White Open Cutaway Blazer- Forever 21 $32.80
So their you have it! Just some of this seasons top trends to try and incorporate when styling yourself for spring. Remember to assess your items and utilize what you already own in order not to break the bank trying these out.
Spring into this seasons trends!
