Spring has Sprung! The season’s three key trends and how to wear it ♥

Ah, printemps. It appears that she is finally paying Paris a visit…and Parisians can hardly contain their excitement! Stylish ladies have already ditched their fur coats and wool tights for silk dresses and bare legs, preparing themselves for the season's trends. Why not, as the fashionistas we are, follow their lead? In lieu of the vernal equinox, here's a guide to the three essential trends of Spring 2013 (and how to wear them!) After all, an afternoon stroll in the Tuileries and a walk down the runway are essentially synonymous, non?

STRIPES Image Image

The Spring/Summer 2013 collections were full of vertical lines, be it on tops, skirts, dresses,

or shoes.

Monotone is in, but pick soft pastel stripes if you’re looking for a girlier look. Pair with metallic or sparkly clothing for a gorgeous and chic look, or with frills and ribbons for a flirty feminine look. It’s perfect for a walk along the seine (or perhaps even a cruise!)

LACE Image Image

Romance filled the air as lace paraded down the runway, adorning dresses, blouses, shorts, skirts, and whatever else. Black lace in particular was popular, giving feminine looks a harder and sexier edge- pair this with structured outerwear and high heels for a sleek look. For a more elegant yet sophisticated look, opt for a lace dress with cutouts; pair with dewy makeup and voluminous hair to complete the look.

FLORALS Image Image

It’s almost a cliché, but florals are a classic spring staple, and this season was no exception. Stellar looks from the runway includes the floral pantsuit from Paul & Joe and the mod colorful mini-dress from Moschino, both pictured here. The pantsuit is perfect for the sleek and sophisticated; a structured bag and stilettos will enhance the chicness of the ensemble. The mini-dress look, which would be perfect for a picnic or a lazy afternoon walk, can be completed with a pair of cute ballet flats (repettos, anyone?) and a cute headband. Which look or trend did you girls like the most? Let us know in the comment section below!
