So far, 2013 is shaping up to be an interesting year in the fashion world! The theme seems to be ultra modern twists on old styles from hair and makeup to accessories. Interested in switching up your style this year? Here's what you need to know about accessories:
1. Heavy Metal
Heavy metal is IN and we're not talking about the music! Designers coated everything from shoes, handbags, baubles, to eyelids in metallic for 2013's hottest trend. In the market for a great pair of metallic pumps? If not, you should be! They are the Ruby Slipper of 2013. Regardless, shine on in bronzed or silver accessories this year to take home the gold in great style!
2. Small Statement Bags
2013 is the year of the mini statement handbag. Pops of color and fun patterns harmonized with funky designs - like Chanel's lego-inspired clutch, make up the trend. Feel free to bury that Mary Poppins bag in the back of your closet this year. Clutches and mini handbags are a fun and practical accessory to be toting!
3. Chunky Heels
Ladies, you can stop struggling in those stilettos - for now! Designers are switching up their heel game to boxy, chunky shapes in 2013. Not only are they inspired by years past, but some designers are playing with the shape of the heel to modernize the look. What do you think? Classic is best or funky, modern twists for the win?
4. Candy Coated
Spring 2013 trends have shocked us with dark, edgy looks, but it wouldn't be spring without pastels, would it?! This season, designers are sticking with pastels but turning up the volume on color. We are loving the idea of pairing light, airy colors with bright pops of yellow, pink, purple, and green. We like to think of them as "power pastels". Will you be dabbling with this bold, bright, and playful trend this spring?
2013 is a fun year to play with trends. Have fun, experiment with bold styles, and BE CONFIDENT! The best advice is to own your look and stop worrying that you can't pull it off. You absolutely can with the right attitude! Strut your stuff this spring and remember what the season is all about: Rebirth.
For the love of style,
