Winter is still here but spring fashion is starting to hit the stores. Spring 2013 has many exciting trends, but choose your picks wisely. Being a fashion slave is not only tacky but it also breaks the bank.
Luckily, some of next season’s trends have a classical appeal which guarantees them staying power. Plus, they can be easily worn with other pieces from your wardrobe.
Here are the top 5 spring trends for 2013 that are totally wearable:
1) It’s Black, it’s white
One of the classiest color combinations, black and white is perfectly appropriate for any day-to-day situation. A black and white ensemble looks professional in the office, sophisticated in a dinner party and edgy in the dance floor. Plus, black and white pieces go very well with other items from your wardrobe. Invest in a pencil black skirt and a silk white shirt, which are versatile and timeless pieces.
2) Earn your stripes
A long time staple of French style, stripped clothes never seem to be out dated. Pick stripes with your favorite color and you are instantly trendy. Watch out when using this pattern as a bottom, the stripes call a lot of attention to this area. For a safe, flattering approach, pick a stripped top or scarf.
3) Flirty ruffles
There’s nothing like ruffled edges to give subtle bounce to an outfit. They look playful on a blouse and alluring on a skirt. But if you are unsure about this trend and just want to try it out, look for cheaper alternatives. See if they mix well with the other pieces of your wardrobe. If they don't, you needen't bother spending more money on this trend.
4) Suit up
The power suit will be all the rage this spring. Inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s Le Smoking, the all black suit will make business women everywhere trendy and polished. It is worth investing in the whole ensemble, because you can always wear the pieces separately. Plus, black goes well with every color, so you can get creative and add colorful accessories to the suit.
5) Short heights
Tall girls rejoice! This will be the season of short, pointy heels mixing the comfort of a flat with the classiness of a pointy toed shoe. To play it safe, choose shoes in either neutral colors or in colors that can be worn with most of your clothes.
