Spring Style Round-Up: 12 Trends To Try Now

By  March 20, 2013

March 20th marks the first day of spring, and while we’re sure you’ve already begun incorporating this season’s best trends into your style, it’s now officially time to make the transition into a new warm weather appropriate wardrobe. From the runway to reality, check out our 12 favorite fashions from the Spring 2013 catwalk that should be strutting their way into your closet.

1. Dressed Up Neon: Highlighter yellows, blinding greens, and hot pinks; these brights are being featured on structured silhouettes and timeless pieces this season, allowing for neon to take a turn towards sophistication and stylish. [Glam Chic]

2. Ankle Strap Heels: From the runway to the red carpet, our favorite shoes for spring are showing up everywhere. So chic and ultra sexy, get leggy with a head turning pair (or eight) in a single strap style for your next evening out. [Glam Chic]

3. Lady-like Baseball Caps: This borrowed-from-the-boys classic gets an upgrade this season with feminine prints, bold materials and a softer structure. Skip the team logos and make a statement with this new style. [She Finds]

4. Mint Madness: From strands to style, this season is all about the romance of pastels, preferably the magic of mint green. The haute hue made it’s grand appearance on the Diane von Furstenberg and Tibi runway. [Glam Chic]

5. Mini Split Wrap Skirts: With an asymmetrical hem and a split that shows a bit more thigh on one side (subtly, that is. Sorry Angelina Jolie), this season’s mini wrap skirt is one of the most interesting trends on our radar. Learn how to style this standout piece with time for sunny, leg flaunting weather here.

6. Garden Party Florals: Feminine florals in bold prints, with dainty embellishments, and covering unique silhouettes are some of the styles blooming this season thanks to the looks from the Valentino, Dries Van Noten and Bottega Veneta catwalk. [In Style]

7. Comic Relief: KA-POW! KABOOM! Have fun with your classic pieces, like t-shirts and pullovers, by choosing a style with a bit of a comic kick this season.[She Finds]

8. Strapped Up Gladiator Boots: No swords or shields needed to accessories these arena ready shoes; marching down the runway for Spring 2013, calf climbing gladiator boots in sky high heels turned spectators’ heads on their own. Rocking these babies are easier than you’d think. Find out how after the jump. [Glam Chic]

9. Bold Stripes: We were seeing stripes up and down the Spring 2013 runway, and not just your standard horizontal or vertical kind. Bold black and white lines, chic chevron prints and colorful zig zagging patterns showed up on the runway and are an easy style to incorporate into your closet as well. [Glam Chic]

10. Accessory Transparency: Every 90s heart jump for joy! Fashion megastars Valentino, Dolce and Gabbana and Balenciaga all featured plastic and plexiglass accessories in their 2013 shows for the season, from futuristic wrist cuffs to see-through clutches. [Glam Chic]

11. Short Suit Style: The short suit is an easy look that is flirty and playful, yet still put together. Try a printed style in a fresh print in tune with spring. [Harper's Bazaar]

12. Statement Sunglasses: 2013 is all about exaggerated frames, quirky temple pieces and crazy glass colors thanks to the standout spring and summer sunnies by Anna Sui and 3.1 Phillip Lim at New York Fashion Week. [Glam Chic]
