The Top Trends for Spring 2013

We're only weeks away from spring--I know, I know...very exciting! Time to put away the sweaters and bust out some fab new, warm-weather looks.

I've done a little research and have found the top three trends of the season.  They're all Sassy Fashionista Approved (so, no fashion faux pas here) and are very wearable.

Stripes, Plaid and Squares:
The season's hottest print is all about geometric shapes.  Squares, stripes, and anything linear is not only gracing the runway, it's also an easy and flattering trend for everyone. With a couple of carefully places lines and shapes, you can easily give yourself the image of having a perfect hourglass figure.  It's a good way to trick the eye, and it's fun to play around with different shapes!

Metallic, Iridescent and Sheen:
Metallics showed their face last year, but they're back and better than ever! I'm not talking sinply gold and silver--there are high-sheen hues out there that are unexpected and gorgeous.  Metallic blue is one of my favorite picks.  With this trend, it's best to stick to accessories.  Approach with some caution as shiny fabrics can look cheap, in a "disco ball" sort of way. Keep that in mind, and you should be all right!

Flower Power:
Per usual, flowers are in this season. What makes this year different? We're seeing a lot of prints that give a nod to the 60s.  Anything remotely hippie-chic can easily be worn with this trend. Pick an adorable floral top and pair with skinny jeans. Head-to-toe floral is a bit much.
