Spring Trends at MyWardrobe

It's that time of year when the sales are ending and there are new items on the racks each week. I always have difficulty shopping at this time because I'm still unsure about what the Spring trends are. I wouldn't want to spend money on something not in style and then watch it hang neglected in my cupboard! Luckily, Mywardrobe.com has created a style guide and categorized their new pieces based on the hottest trends to look for this Spring. Enjoy :)

The 60s are making a comeback through shift dresses, A-line cuts trapeze shapes and peter pan collars in BRIGHT colours

Here is a modern take on a 60s-cut inspired dress.

Prints were all over the catwalks for Spring 2013 and you can wear them head-to-toe matched, mis-matched, or one piece a print and the other a block color. The rules are lax - just have fun with this trend!

Loving these prints and the way the model is wearing them - Off-duty chic done right!

Indulge in a new silhouette this Spring- Volume! Wear oversized shirts, skirts, or dresses. 
The key to this look is to offset the volume by pairing it with something slim and fitted
(e.g. a bubble skirt with a tight top) so you don't end up looking too frumpy!

This TIBI dress will look good on because the top is fitted and only the skirt is big and ruffled.
The color is absolutely FABULOUS! 

Leather is still very on-trend this Spring - wear it as much as you can before it gets hot out!
Choose coloured leather to look even more stylish

This classic THEORY leather jacket in green will instantly update your outfit

Designers have been influenced by sports wear this season and bring us clothes 
using tech fabrics, mesh panels, stripes, and zips. 
Avoid looking like you are going to the gym by teaming pants with high heels and 
dresses with funky trainers
I like the way this bomber jacket by THEYSKENS' THEORY is teamed with skinny jeans and ankle boots. Very sports chic and flattering at the same time

Stripes, checks, grids, circle prints, monochrome and loud colours and motifs are IN. 
This is a trend that I might not be able to wear but be BOLD and try it :)
I like this silk Andy Warhol printed poncho and would wear it to an post-beach party like Blue Marlin

MY ADVICE is to buy what suits you- don't be bullied into buying items that make you look bad but are trendy. You will just end up looking off. There are some really great trends this season so purchase wisely and enjoy your updated wardrobe! :)
