Spring 2013 Trend Report

With the wrap up of Spring 2013 fashion weeks around the world, the trends for the upcoming season has been revealed to the masses. A number of designers shared similarities in what they believe will be hot commodities in the future. After sorting through ( a lot!) of pictures covering the runways, I've come up with a list of must haves for spring.

The color next season just might be no color at all. Designers like Brood, Marc Jacobs, and Juan Carlos Orbando (pictured left to right above) showed how dynamic the contrasting colors can be. The color duo also bleed over onto other trends of the season, including the always spring worthy floral and art deco prints.

Stripes played a big role on the runway. Dolce and Gabana, Jonathan Saunders, and Marc by Marc Jacobs all brought out their own colorful lines to the stage. I'll be looking forward to the trend, along with playing between the contrasts of stripes and dots, a forbidden combination that can work quite nicely if put together correctly.

Last spring, it was all about peak-a-boo backs and midriff revealing tops. Next season, it's a combination of the two. Dresses and tops will look great with cut outs in the front. If you're one for a bit more modesty, try the cut out look with sheer coverings, just as Nicole Miller and Jason Wu (left and center) brought to fashion week. Feeling daring? Go for a dress like Erdem's (right) as a nice addition to your summer dress wardrobe.
