3 Favorite Trends for Spring 2013

3/12/2013 Unknown 0 Comments

I'm so excited for the spring to come in and warm things up! Just over the weekend here in Indianapolis, we got a taste of the warmer weather as it got up in the 60's. It felt nice and refreshing and inspired me to take a walk in my neighborhood park. It made me think of shopping for new threads for the warmer weather as well! I'm ready to start incorporating some of the hot spring trends that were showcased on the runways back during fashion week in the fall. I also read about a few in the latest issue of InStyle magazine. Here are 3 of my favorites:

Calm, Coral and Collected:

The first trend I'm excited about is wearing coral, which has always been a favorite of mine and looks great on my skin. It's the perfect mix of red and orange and definitely heats things up. I would try the color in fun textures like silk, leather and lace. I love how the color brightens up the day and definitely stands out. Try it in a more fiery red for a bolder look.

Funky Florals:

The always classic floral print is almost a given during the spring season, but it's always a winner as well. It's perfect for that feminine and romantic touch to any look, but this time around the prints are a bit more tough and edgy. I'm always a fan of prints, so this was an easy choice trend for me. I would try the print in dresses or break it up in separates like skirts, shorts, tops and accessories. Get the look below:

Sheer Story:

This final favorite trend is more for the daring. Push the envelope with a little sheerness or cutout effects. A great example was Kelly Rowland's Grammy dress - it had material in all the right areas, and the sheer panels made it a sexy standout on the red carpet for many. The key to this trend is choosing a body part to reveal (or partially reveal) to create an illusion. Make sure you find a garment that fits correctly and don't overdo it with the cutout's and sheer effects to avoid taking the look from chic and sexy to trashy. Less is always more!
