Spring is officially here even though it doesn’t look or feel like it yet. Maybe, hopefully, by the time you read this it will feel a lot like Spring. I am definitely in the “I am so done with winter now” camp and have decided to stop complaining about the weather and turn my attention to Spring fashion. Stores everywhere are displaying the best of their Spring collection and it’s looking good. We are headed to Clearwater Beach, Florida in two weeks and I am taking some of my favourite Spring 2013 trends with me. Here are my top 5 items and the trends that they represent:
5. Trend: POP OF COLOR, GO GLOBAL
Designers love tapping into colourful and sensous items from all over the world. And by the time spring finally rolls around a lot of us are craving that little pop of color too, right? These Pakistani bright coloured bracelets present just the right amount of colour and culture and I plan on wearing them with a plain black top and cropped jeans.
4. Trend: STRIPES
My favourite kind have always been the nautical inspired navy blue and white stripes. They are crisp and classy. I got this beach bag a few years ago, actually it was a free gift with purchase from Lancome and it has become my go to travel beach bag. It is the perfect size and has just the right amount of stripes. And it looks perfect on my shoulder with most beach gear.
3. Trend: STUDS, EMERALD GREEN
Studs give any outfit a little edge and personality. This Spring I decided to go with this Reitmans casual top with stud accents on the shoulders. Bonus: I bought it in the colour of the year – Emerald Green.
2. Trend: BLACK & WHITE, GRAPHIC
What I love about this trend is that it’s simple and elegant and most of us have a black and white piece in our closet. This spring it’s all about pairing black with white. I normally wear this dress with a bright coloured belt and sandals but this year I am going with a black belt and black/white Houndstooth print shoes.
Nothing makes me feel more like spring than flowers. I fell in love with these floral palazzo pants – they are pretty, feminine, flowy and seem oh so very Florida. And they are super comfortable. That’s the best combo right – fashion and comfort together? I am going to be wearing these with my coral coloured Franco Sarto Flatforms (Also a shoe trend this Spring).
What I am enjoyin’ most about this year’s Spring fashion is that enough trends are mainstream enough for a lot of us to enjoy and I found a lot of these trends already in my closet. I only bought a couple new pieces (Emerald stud top, Floral pants).
Would any of the above trends make your top 5 list? Maybe a trend I didn’t include like lace or leather? What are you most looking forward to wearing this spring?
