Warm Weather Leather – Spring 2013 Trend

Leather was huge this past fall and winter and the trend stays strong through spring with lots of options for warm weather leather. Available in a multitude of colors and shapes, you'll be able to find leather jackets, skirts, dresses, and shorts to suit whatever your style maybe.

Choose an unexpected shape like high-waist pants, a trenchcoat, or shorts in a flirty hue, a nude, or a shiny metallic. Steer clear of anything with tough details like studs, laced-up sides, or grommets—this is a ladylike vibe. Pair it with delicate silk or lace, or even more leather, and opt for a super-sheer body shaper, such as Spanx’s Skinny Britches, to slip on underneath. 

Here are my picks for warm weather leather items to wear in your everyday life!

Mad about Florals – Spring 2013 Trend

Loving the modern floral prints popping up all over the place. Definitely feels like spring is around the corner.
Embrace this uplifting pattern either in small doses like shoes, belts or bags or in larger doses likes pants/jeans, dresses or tops. Either way, you'll attract tons of sunshine!

Since these prints are a bit edgy and already full of personality, best to wear minimum accessories, stay away from anything too pretty, and maybe leave your hair a bit messy!

Here are my picks for modern floral items to wear in your everyday life!

Ooh La Lace!

Lace is still the protagonist of the season. There is nothing more feminine and sexy than a lace dress. Besides the classic colors nude, black and white, there are so many options available from jewel tones to metallics to neon lace this season. Thanks to its sexy and elegant characteristics, lace can make anyone look graceful, girly and fashionable
I am loving lace dresses with a leather jacket and a pair of black ankle booties for a glam rock look for the evening!
Here are some of my favorite lace dresses......

Holiday Style: Sparkling Silver

This is one of my favorite Alice & Olivia dresses as it is the perfect combination of sparkle and ruffle. To make it holiday party appropriate, wear it with the season's hot color, burgundy, accessories. The Chanel Camillia brooch is gorgeous and would look awesome pinned to the waist. Keep your hair lose and wavy, add a dramatic eye and lip and you are bound to be the talk of the party!
