After being introduced to the new Nokia Lumia 920, and the amazing range of colours these phones come in, I was reminded of New York Fashion Week (NYFW) and all the amazing spring trends I spotted outside of the tents. Naturally, this prompted me to jot down my personal spring shopping list to make sure that I’m ready not only for Toronto’s own fashion week, but for the warmer weather ahead. Not surprisingly, my list included a lot of colour. Here are some fun spring 2013 trends that I can’t wait to try this season, and hope you might like as well!
1. Graphic Black and White
Stripes, checks, dots, you name it! Graphic black and white prints are certainly having their moment. And as someone who’s obsessed with stripes in general, this trend feels mighty refreshing to the usual pastels that inevitably come each spring.
2. White Pumps
For the last few months, it seems that every stylish person out there has been obsessed with white pumps. Celebs like Kerry Washington, Carrie Bradshaw…errr…SJP and Rihanna, among others, have all been spotted wearing this trend on red carpets everywhere, and why not? Classic white pumps are just as easy to pull off as the boring black ones, but feel a lot more current.
3. Mirrored Shades
Another trend I spotted during NYFW was mirrored shades. In vibrant shades of blue, orange, yellow, pink, [insert colour here], mirrored shades come in every colour imaginable, and look cool and refreshing. I love classic Wayfarers as much as any other person out there, but this spring I will be mixing it up with a fun pair of blue mirrored shades.
4. Colourful Bags
While I may not be able to afford a Chanel bag in every colour of the rainbow, this spring I am planning to pick up a colourful clutch or two to inject some much-needed excitement into my wardrobe. If your budget allows it, Chanel spring 2013 bags are exceptional! Lego-inspired whimsical clutches and colour-blocked quilted flap bags; this is what dreams are made of!
5. Statement Outerwear
Whether you are a leather-jacket girl or a peacoat lady, this spring is all about statement outerwear! Red leather jackets, fuchsia muppet-hair coats, metallic blue trench coats – pick a fun topper, and wear it with confidence.
Whether you are into graphic prints or love a little pop of colour in your accessories, spring trends are only a guideline, not a rule. Start small, with a fun yellow phone or perhaps with a funky blue clutch, and make each look your own.
