Women`s Spring 2013 Fashion Tips

This spring is all about bright, vibrant prints and simple silhouettes. From ALL white ensembles to printed floral feminine dresses, spring trends are eye-catching, but not overwhelming or difficult to interpret into wearable everyday outfits. This spring, slip into something cool to wear, but boldly colourful.

Patterned Dresses

This spring, you don`t have to choose between different dress lengths – maxi, midi and mini styles are all the rage. All lengths are acceptable this spring so if you like or loathe those pins there`s a style for everyone, whether your dress`s hem is grazing your toes or your kneecaps wear with comfort and confidence. What matters is what`s printed on the dress, as this season is all about vibrant colors and bright prints.

Imagine how wonderfully fresh you`ll feel after slipping into a bright floral frock, or bold tribal or oriental inspired summer dress. These styles are perfect for the spring, because the silhouette is simple yet striking and the pattern is loud and colourful to mimic your personality traits. Dresses can be dressed up for evening or down for daywear and if you`re planning on wearing one to work, team it with a simple cover-up and a pair of nude coloured heeled court shoes.

Collarless Jackets

Spring jacket trends are collarless. This means you`ll be forgoing the folded-over collar, in favor of a wider neck. Not only is this look more comfortable and easier to wear than collared styles, they`re also very stylish and fashion-forward. You can pair collarless jackets with printed tank tops, fitted shift dresses, skinny cropped trousers and city shorts.

Jackets can also be seen in bold patterns too this season. Derek Lam`s catwalk eye-catcher is incredibly expensive at $1,690, but does feature this season`s most important trend, which sports a large star pattern, in black and white color blocking. This jacket is a lusted after piece with its loud, colour-blocked pattern!

Jackets make the perfect spring cover-up and can be worn with pretty much anything. Favourite denim items are going to make jackets appear more casual and with patterns this loud, it`s likely you`ll want something to tone down the noise. Jeans are the perfect match for a spring jacket, when in relaxed or smart casual setting, while a simple pencil style skirt will create a fashionable outfit for work.

Neutral Bags

This season is all about bags that match what you`re wearing. White is an excellent neutral colour for this time of year and goes well with this season`s brighter colour options. Consider a drawstring pouch teamed with a maxi-dress or a shorts and tank top combo for a more casual look as well as bags that have long straps and sit at the hip!

Wearing a designer bag will always make you feel like a million dollars if your budget allows and Longchamp leather bags will always be one of those classic staple items. This springtime look is best purchased in a neutral white or a loud canary yellow, why not consider Longchamp`s Le Pliage Cuir medium-sized bag. This bag is one of those springtime essentials and will look fabulous with your newly purchased patterned jacket. Plus, this is the perfect bag to leap into summer with, as it falls in line with some of our fave summer fashion trends!

Wedge Shoes

Wedges are back and they`re cuter than ever with this spring`s fun heels in solid colours. Why not team a vibrant coloured dress with a pair of neutral wedge heels for an effortless smart casual look? Don`t let the height of wedges put you off, as there are lots of different styles to suit everyone and it`s true, they`re one of the most comfortable shoe styles you can actually walk in! They`re also a great versatile shoe style that will work with every trouser length, skirt and dress style. Other wedge colours that are hot this season are red, black, cognac and soft yellow.

Finally, our last shoe style to report on this season is the Oxford Flat. These shoes are designed to be more comfortable and ideal paired with jeans, colourful chinos or a flirty feminine skirt. Oxford Flats have a beauty that`s in the eye of the beholder and not everyone can pull off this unique look, but those who can wear it well with individual quirkiness. If you`re looking for a new springtime shoe style then this could be the one for you.
