Spring 2013 Trend Guide: What You Should Buy Now

Now that you've adequately cleaned your closet and begun to prep your wardrobe for spring, it's time to decide which of the fun trends you'll want to incorporate into your closet for the new season. There are many, and you don't have to (nor should you) toss on every single one, but it can be fun to try them on for size and see which ones fit into your personal style aesthetic. Here are some of the options from which you can choose!

Go Green {Mint + Emerald}
Gorgeous greens are so in for spring, with emerald green being the color of the year, and mint continuing to be a pastel Du jour. (p.s. Statement necklaces are sticking around as well--particularly, the long bubble styles--adore!)

Black and White
Black and white appears to trend every season, yet designers keep coming up with fresh ways to present it. This season the duo appears in wide stripes, bold color blocked combinations and graphic prints.

Colored Denim
I was not personally a believer in this trend until I tried an uber comfy pair of green jeans from H&M. The fabric in some colored jeans is a bit softer and more malleable than regular denim and they feel great on. So I am happy I get another season to wear them (and to acquire more!) They're a fun way to add color to even the simplest attire.

Graphic Pants Suits
Celebs and models, including Solange (above) have been getting all matchy matchy in graphic print pants suits. It's certainly an eye catching way to punch up the classic pairing. Note: you may want to save the full suit for a glamorous evening out; make this look more appropriate for a conservative office by wearing the pants and jacket separately.

Polka Dots
Get spotty again this season with polka dots! I think dots are so much fun--especially when rocking a little 'dot on dot' print combo as pictured above. They're awesome for spring attire, but for spring home decor and accents as well!

Florals continue to be SO in for spring, but 2013's floral prints are big, bold and graphic. Try toning them down with a solid color if full-on floral feels like too much.

So let's hear it: which of these trends will you shop for spring?
