We’re not even through with Winter yet, but the world of fashion is already fixed on the Spring. Classic trends like pops of color, color blocking, and whimsical maxi dresses are expected, but Spring 2013 is bringing in a few new trends to keep an eye out for.
Don’t be afraid to show some skin. This coming Spring, designers are making it okay to dress sexy in the daytime too. Every body type can pull it off, so be a little more daring. Fun fabrics like lace, and subtle cutouts on shirts or dresses are enough to do the trick. Designers like BCBG Max Azria and Diane Von Furstenberg can show you how to encompass it into your wardrobe.
Stripes are back with vengeance. Designers love the look of bold stripes for the springtime. This trend is easy to encompass in a shirt, shorts, or even simple accessories. J. Crew and Oscar de la Renta encompass the trend throughout their collections.
Fun colors aren't the only way to dress boldly for the Spring. This coming season, look for exotic prints to sprinkle into your wardrobe. Unique prints can be combined with any other Spring trend and make for the perfect outfit. Vera Wang and Derek Lam are loving this idea.
Who says nice suits are only made for men? Fashion certainly doesn't. The unexpected trend of females in suits is popular for the coming Spring – full length suits and short suits too. Take a few tips from Mulberry and Mary Katrantzou for this one.
All Over Leather
Although the leather trend has been popular for the Fall and Winter, it’s sticking around for the Springtime too. Leather pants and jackets are easy to pair with sheer tops, creating a balance of textures. Jason Wu and Holmes and Yang brought in this trend throughout their collections.
Keep these top five trends in mind in the coming moths, and prepare to sprinkle them into your wardrobe when you’re shopping for a revamped Spring look. They’ll guarantee a few fun, show stopping outfit creations.
