Top Ten Fashion Trends for Spring 2013

Spring fashion has arrived! If you’re looking for new spring outfits, here is my list of spring trends to incorporate into your wardrobe this season.
1.     Bermuda Shorts:
The slouchy, cool-girl shorts that were all over the New York runways this season are perfect for every girl who never felt like she could pull off those cheek-baring cutoffs. They’re ultra -chic, fam-friendly, and flattering. They come in a variety of textures and styles, ranging from denim to silk from designers like Oscar De La Renta to Tommy Hilfiger. . Seriously, what’s not to love?
2.     Black and White:
Spring Trends might typically call to mind Easter-egg colors and happy-go-lucky floral prints, but this season, designers are putting the emphasis on black and white looks. Appropriate to wear year-round, easy to pull off at every budget, and sleek enough to work at the office or on a date night with your friends and family, this trend is the definition of wearable.

3.      Short Suits:

The Fall Trend of wearing suits to work has been upgraded. The short suit is one of the hottest trends on the runways in New York City and is the ideal blend of sleek versatility with a masculine edge. They are purposeful, office-appropriate, and I’m betting you’ll be able to find all-star versions of this must-have fashion trend at every price this year at your favorite boutiques.
4.         Leather:
Leather in the summer? Why yes. Yes, indeed. The sturdy fabric has carried over from fall to enter into our spring lexicon thanks to lighter weights, brighter colors, and skin baring cut outs. To wear this well, go for perforated or sliced leather looks, or strapless tops that allow for a bit of ventilation.Time-honored and fashionista-approved, a luxe leather piece is more than worth adding to your spring shopping list.
5.          Stripes:
Whether sliced vertically or horizontally, stripes, some nautically inspired, will be sure to set off your wardrobe with panache. It’s all about bold combinations for Spring trends. Layer stripe on stripe, or take it easy with a lined dress. They are just plain cool and you’ll definitely be able to wear them for seasons to come. Note: horizontal stripes can make you look wide, while vertical stripes make you appear long and lean. Your choice!

6.           Global Prints:
After Fall’s whirlwind of brocade, fur and embellishment, it was no surprise to see a little razzle-dazzle on the spring catwalks. You could see the global influences spanning from India and the Middle-East to Russia, and it made for some seriously stunning evening wear. Get rid of those shiny sequined mini dresses and tight spandex pants and push them in the back of your closet. You won’t need those for a while. These prints with beautiful beading and patterns are sure to impress anyone this season!
7.            Sporty Dresses:
Spring’s sporty dresses with their flirty A-line skirts and shoulder-showcasing bodices—are guaranteed to grab everyone’s attention.  They work just as easily with wedges and high-heel sandals as they do with comfy canvas sneakers. Go all Saved by the Bell with the addition of a collegiate cardigan or letterman jacket.
8.             90’s Revival:
Brace yourself for the 90s revival in fashion this year! Considered one of the worst dressed eras in human history, the decade is making its comeback on runways in New York and in Europe. This street style includes: jumpsuits, logo loving tops, pants emblazoned with labels, overalls, tie dyed separates and cropped blouses which can help you get the look without being too obvious.
9.            Peek-A- Boo Pieces:
Speaking of date night, this spring you’ll have zero problems finding something sexy to wear: Daring cutouts, midriff-baring separates, up-to-there splits, and sheer fabrics were all over the runway. The beauty of this trend? There’s a peekaboo option for every body shape and is up for grabs.
10.           Floral Prints:
Yes, flowers in spring skews obvious, though this season, step it up a notch. The prints are edgy bordering on grunge with flowers winding down the center, which will draw the eye in, creating a slimming illusion.
