spring 2013: stripes, contrast, and black & white.

here is a 3 for the price of 1 trend recap for spring. stripes (vertical and horizontal) were on almost every runway. as we know, especially here in new england, stripes are a staple for every spring and summer. 

this season, they were a little different. they were mostly shown in verticals or in the next trend here, contrast prints. many looks were mixes of vertical and horizontal stripes, mixes of widths and sizes of the stripes, as well as stripes mixed with similar patterns in similar colors. 

the third spring trend here, i think, is pretty obvious. black & white. these two colors together are going to be major. if you have been out shopping in the past few weeks, you see this combination popping up everywhere already. whether it is together or mixed with pops of neons or pastels, black & white is making a bold statement. this look is easy to get with things you probably already have in your closet and is certainly easy to find at all price points. with your choice of accessories, you can make this look either super edgy for the weekend or classic enough for work.

whether you choose to wear these three trends together or just one or two at a time, you can see from the options above that it will be easy to work these into your spring wardrobe.
