Sensational Spring 2013 Fashions - The Short Skirt is Back

In just a couple of weeks, people will turn back their clocks and wait for the warmer weather to arrive.  Spring has almost sprung and it is time to revamp your wardrobe.  The trends from last year are finally simmering down.  For several seasons we saw the maxi dress, single shoulder gowns and thicker materials. While your old favorites are still in fashion, there are some exciting new trends to consider.

Be A Gossamer Goddess

Gossamer layers and high low hems are definitely the look for this spring.  Airy fabric that subtly shows your silhouette fits in equally well at a garden party as it does for an evening on the town.  Look for natural hues such as sage, lavender and sand.  Embroidery and beads give it a Bohemian look coupled with hoop earrings and dull metallic flats.  The shiny metallics from last year are toned down and work well with this earthy look.  Makeup should be moist in earth tones with a beauty balm foundation.

It's All About Black and White

Classic black and white are back in full swing.  Rather than choosing one or the other, the key is wearing them both.  Blocks of black and white as well as paisley prints are being featured.  The look works well with the new pointy toe pumps and a pair of sparkling crystal earrings.  Add sheer red lipstick with bold blush and a highlighter for a dash of daring color.

Short Skirts are Back

For several seasons, long evening dresses were the only option. Now short cocktail dresses are in back in style. If you have fantastic legs, it's your time to shine.  Wear the shorter skirts with platform pumps and chunky jewelry.
