Monday, October 07 2013

From New York to Milan, we've covered the hottest trends that graced the runways and now we have Paris to bring us some of the most exciting trends. Fashion month is always hectic and if you're in the field that we are, then you know that being on top of the trends is one of the most important jobs we have. Don't worry we've done most of the work for you!

Get used to having to wear your sunglasses into you're favorite store! Metallics were seen everywhere this season and I think it's safe to say that they're here to stay! It's almost as if a metallic is now a neutral and we don't care to disagree. It can be worn to work or a night out, as separates or a dress, and it most definitely can be used to accessorize. Embrace the sheen because this spring, these frosty metals are going to be a staple!

One of the easiest ways to have a chic outfit this spring is with matching separates. We have already seen this trend off the runway, but it came with a POW on the runway this season. From typography to florals to line work, there is a matching set for everyone! There's no need in trying to break a print up because it's socially acceptable to wear a print from head to toe! Well, when it's appropriate, we don't need another Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala disaster!

The slip dress. Are you having flashbacks? Clueless and Calvin Klein haunting your dreams? It's a good thing! The 90s are back and the slip dress is the perfect way to celebrate. This easy breezy dress can be styled up and down and around the corner! With it's super thin straps and varying hemlines, spring will have a flurry of soft fabrics competing will it's growth of beautiful flowers and sunny days.
