Spring Trends

I’m not a fashionista, nor do I claim to be, but still I get a bit excited to see what people will be wearing for the new season so I decided to look at Glamour’s “Spring 2013’s Most Wearable Fashion Trends” (http://www.glamour.com/fashion/2012/09/spring-2013-most-wearable-fashion-trends?slide=2#slide=1) Some trends are adorable, while others are odd.  I’m going to do a quick run down the list and talk about these “trends”.

1. Bermuda Shorts

I can see some girls rocking this look, but to me it’s a bit too vacationy and not at all feminine or appropriate for everyday wear.

2. Black and White

When is black and white not in?  It’s possibly the most wearable color combination- it’s appropriate from the office to a nightclub.  Not seeing this so much as a trend, but still a do!

3. Peekaboo Pieces

Been seeing this trend a lot this fall and I’m loving it!  It’s perfect for the warmer days in Spring!

4. Statement Sunglasses

Haha.  Okay not this crazy, but still statement sunglasses are fun and playful and definitely Spring!

5. Bold Stripes

Of course!  There’s not much to say, but stripes are a fun and simple way to spruce up any outfit!

6. Luxe Leather

I like how faux leather can “toughen” up a look, but not sure if it’s for everyone or “springy”

7. Beautiful Beading

Really, really pretty and adds a touch of glamour.  I don’t know if I’m into it, but I can definitely see others rocking this trend.

8. Short Suits

Um… I don’t like it at all.  I think it looks odd and not appropriate for work or anything really for that matter.

9. Sporty Dresses

Cute and casual. I’m loving it.

10. Flats and Low-heels

Yes and no.  I love flats, but I don’t know how I feel about low heels.  I find wedges to be a cuter option over low heels.  That being said, I’m way more into the sneaker wedge trend this season!

For me, I’ll be rocking more of a sporty/casual look this season, without buying new clothes!  I’m up for the challenge!

 

What trends are you excited for this season?

  1. Reblogged this on trendbytes and commented:
    I’m with Material Detox on most points…like the beading for ‘Downton Abbey’ style, and for cool shades, check out http://www.warbyparker.com (prescription too). Shorts suits are a laugh…you seriously can’t wear them anywhere. Love flats and wedges. The only low heeled shoe that’s worth writing about is a Roger Vivier type pilgrim look…very Belle du Jour. I would have added spring cashmere to that list, and a floaty skirt or dress…

  2. A very well-rounded list. These are practical and comfortable everyday wear. I could see myself in one or two of these trends, especially the beading skirt, like trendbytes mentions, for Downton Abbey and as well as the upcoming movie The Great Gatsby. Do you happen to know where the beading skirt is from? I want to get one 🙂

      1. that is OMG CRAZY expensive…i’ll look for an alternative. but the beading and finish and quality looks gorgeous. thank you for the tip!
