Nothing makes you feel better about the cold weather than the idea that Spring actually WILL be here soon! Before you know it, it will be time to dust off your warm weather clothing and figure out what items you need to keep you up to date with current trends. Then you can go shopping!
I have scoured the internet looking at runway shows and reading trend reports and narrowed all that information down to my top ten favorite trends for girls and tweens. Enjoy!
Coordinates – Now is not the time to shy away from matchy-matchy. One trend report likened this spring to bringing back Cher’s style from Clueless with matched sets! How fun. Who can forget her yellow plaid skirt suit? Luckily all of our bags with interchangeable panels make coordinating your handbag with your outfit a snap.
Pastels – The big color palette of the season is pastels. Peaches, pinks, cool blues and mints. Very pretty and feminine. Our suggested FB panel to wear is the Lily in white or yellow.
Metallic – Gold, silver and bronze is not just for the Olympics! You will see metallic in clothing, shoes and handbags. Our suggestion on how to wear the metallic trend for Spring in your accessories? With the Trixie panel in gold or silver.
Neon – It may be hard to imagine neon as subdued but the neon trend that you will see in Spring 2014 is a little more icy than in the past. We suggest snapping the Cita onto your denim handbag to express yourself while having fun with the neon trend.
Sequins – Embellishments on clothing and accessories is the name of the game. Paillettes cover clothing; or just a sequin trim or even bejeweled ruffles. Our suggestion for this trend is the chic Kimberley panel with linear sequins.
Layered Statement Necklaces – Buy a beautiful statement necklace (or two) and pair it with your favorite simple tee or buttoned down blouse. Think bright and chunky! Claire’s has a great selection.
Printed Shorts – You will see printed shorts all Spring and Summer! The patterns you’ll want to try are floral, stripes, graphics and denim. We saw some great options at Nordstrom.
Graphic Patterns – Updated multi-color stripes and polka dots are just a couple of ways you’ll see graphic patterns. And you’ll see them everywhere – from clothes to shoes. The Liz is how we would snap your handbag into making a statement.
Floral – There will be all kinds of floral prints out there. Tropical blooms; floral with a watercolor or illustration feel; florals in embellishments; retro florals prints; garden blossoms; photo real prints and even a floral / animal print mix. Our suggestion for how to rock the floral trend? With the Kiana panel snapped onto a Flying Buttress girls’ bag.
Laceless Sneakers – Every girl loves shoes. And every girl loves being comfortable. So what every girl loves even more is being comfortable in super cute shoes. The fashion gods have listened and given us some of the cutest sneakers to wear. And our options are plentiful – you can go with plain or you can go with printed sneakers. Sperry Top-siders even had glittery ones!
