Spring/Summer Trends of 2013

Hello Beautiful Ladies,

I live in Canada, so the fact that Spring and Summer might actually be arriving is so exciting. I thought I would share some of my thoughts on the upcoming trends.

Strips

Not just any kinds of strips, but sexy strips. I’ve always been a fan of stripes but they must be worn properly or else they can make you look bigger than you want to. If you are larger try wearing vertical stripes rather than horizontal, or wear stripes that accentuate your curves. For example, the dress below, the strips face in towards the waist making you look smaller.

Sheen

I’m not sure how I feel about the trend. I feel as though it could work or it could look awful. It might be one of those things we look back on and go “what was I thinking.” I do however feel that it can be played down and add some dimension to an outfit. I really like the outfit below because this shirt from American Eagle isn’t too crazy, but it has a cool effect.

Graphic Prints

This trend is bold. It might not work for everyone. I believe that it all depends on how you play it up. You can go all out and have a dress that is a full print. However, if that is too much for you just wear a shirt with the print and play it down with a solid colour short and cardigan. I love this look from Forever 21.

Whites

I love whites, expceailly as a lace dress. I just think it looks so innocent and cute. I also love that you can really play up your accessories when you have a simple colour. Maybe add a statement necklace. This dress from PacSun is exactly the kind of white I love to wear. Also, I think a great pair of white shorts or capires would look create with a graphic print shirt.

Fluorescent

I am all in when it comes to bright colours. I think summer is the perfect time to wear the brightest thing in your closet and that is why I am so excited about this trend. Again, this is one that some people might be afraid of, but if you do it right you will find that you can work this trend as well. I love this high-low (another trend) dress from Forever 21.

60s Style

We all know how styles come and go, and them come back again. Well this summer is no exception. The 60’s and 90’s are coming back. I however am more fond of the 60’s style. We have already seen this trend coming back with the Peter Pan collar (ask any of my friends, I am addicted.) Forever 21 and H&M have some great choices for this trend, but I found like lovely number at TopShop.

There are many trends that are going to be happening the summer, as reoccurring as well. I find that different people like different trends, but  I don’t want you to be afraid to try something. If you think something in fun, try it.

If you don’t want to spend too much money on a trend, hit up a thrift shop and see what you can find there.

Just have fun with your fashion.

Let me know in the comments below some trends you are looking forward to.
