Top 5 Fashion Trends of Spring 2013
April 19, 2013
1) Emerald Green
As the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013, emerald green has been taking over everything from clothing to shoes. With spring in full bloom, this vibrant color is the ultimate spring shade. To make this color pop, wear it with neutrals such as black, white, taupe and gray. If you’d like to opt for prints, try bold patterns such as stripes, polka dots and florals.

2) Thin Rings
Take a break from last year’s statement jewelry with this season’s trend of dainty skinny rings. The thin metal band is perfect for accenting an outfit without taking away from the overall look. You easily incorporate your own personal touch, thanks to the chic simplicity of this type of ring. If you’d like something a little more bolder, try wearing multiple thin rings on the same hand for an edgy touch.

3) Watercolor Prints
Patterns that emulate watercolor paints have a delicate and whimsical look, so it’s no surprise that this trend is spreading quickly. The artistic nature of watercolors can add a laid back, cheerful vibe to even the most basic outfits. When styling watercolor prints, wear simple jewelry in coordinating colors to let the garment do the talking.

Flower prints and motifs will always have a place in fashion. Come spring time, floral patterns are an absolute must have. An appropriate color palette for the season would include bright shades and pastels. If floral prints are a bit too much for you, tone it down with flower earrings or a patterned clutch. Regardless of your taste, florals can add that spring touch to any ensemble.

5) Ombre Shorts
Interestingly enough, ombre has been a trend that has been around for several seasons. This year, it’s all about the dip dyed denim shorts. From white to denim, you can find shorts featuring a bright color suits your style. Whether you’re lounging at the pool or attending this year’s music festivals, ombre shorts are a great fun way to stay cool and fashionable.
