Spring Fashion Trends for 2013

In a few short weeks, the clocks will change, the snow will begin to melt, and the first signs of Spring will be imminent. In anticipation of a fresh new season, it’s fun to look ahead at the spring fashion trends that we get to enjoy this year.

From bold prints to understated elegance, there’s no shortage of interesting and eye-catching pieces this season to play with. Featured here are five fashion trends that evoke a chic and sophisticated quality to them.

1. GRAPHIC STRIPES: This season, you might think you’re seeing jailbirds all over the place. But, don’t let your eyes fool you… one of the most popular spring fashion trends that’s taking over are wide stripes. Whether they be in a horizontal or vertical pattern, nothing gets attention like this striking print.

2. RUFFLES: Feminine and flouncy, ruffles are making a comeback this year. If the exaggerated ruffles shown on the runway are too much for you, try a modified version in the form of a delicately ruffled dress or blouse. This style looks especially sweet in a chiffon or silk fabric.

3. MODERN TUXEDOSTaking a cue from menswear, the updated tuxedo (for women) is a chic and stylish look that always looks smart and sexy. If a full tuxedo feels too traditional for you, why not coordinate the jacket with a pair of jeans, for a downtown evening look?! Even though the modern tuxedo is one of the top spring fashion trends this season, it’s a timeless classic that will become a staple in your wardrobe.

4. DUFFLE BAGS: The sister bag to the always practical tote bag, duffle bags are a great way to stash extra items in your purse (such as an iPad or documents), and even works as an overnight bag (for those last-minute weekend getaways).

5. SLIDE SHOESFrom kitten-heeled sandals to comfortable and cute wedges, the easy to wear slide-into-it shoe will become your go-to shoe this spring.

      Hi Brittany! Thanks for your comment. Go back and get that skirt! Rule of thumb for shopping – if you keep thinking about an item long after you leave the store, you should go back and buy it. If you forget about the item (days later), it shouldn’t be in your wardrobe.
