Welcome to 2013! As we embrace the new year, we can't help but look forward to amazing new trends and fresh looks to update our wardrobes.
Curious about the hottest looks for spring? We're one step ahead of you!
Over the next few days, we'll be revealing our top 12 spring fashion and beauty looks to inspire you. From head-turning new trends to the must-have nail color, we'll dish on all the upcoming looks you need to know about.
Let the countdown begin:
12. Global Chic: There's a wonderful worldly influence happening in fashion this year—so savvy readers take note! Gorgeous prints and patterns inspired by faraway destinations like Asia and Africa are all the rage, and we're enamored of this exotic infusion. Head scarves, colorful accessories and beaded motifs add exciting interest. Try a woven tote bag, quirky floral frock or a colorful beaded belt.
11. Bold Black & White: The classic color combination will be more present than ever in the coming months, and we couldn't be more excited! Taylor Swift demonstrates how adorable the trend truly is; and we love how many ways there are to interpret it into a unique look that reflects your individual style. Given its popularity at Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and Moschino runway shows, we're predicting this powerful look never goes out of style. Flaunt your fashion sense in a modern maxi dress, checked sweater or chic peplum top.
10. Side Bangs: Gorgeous Kate Middleton got a head start on this hot hair trend, and we're loving it's face-framing effects. A flirty side bang is alluring yet sophisticated and adds interest to the eyes—without making a drastic change.
9: Delicate Leather: Good news, gals! Our cold weather staple is sticking around well into spring. The luxurious fabric is taking a different feel for spring: lightweight, feminine and perforated, as seen all over the spring runways at Chanel, Mulberry and Jason Wu. To ease your way into this trend, try on a pair of faux leather leggings, a slick leather T-shirt or flirty studded dress.
