New England Vintage Chic: 10 Spring Trends To Love + Hate

It's that time of year again! NY Fashion Week has hit! Whether you’re into fashion or you will just be paging through your favorite tabloid magazine, you can expect to see a new set of fashion trends this spring. To break it down for you, here are what the trends for Spring 2013 are shaping up to be, and whether they're to love--or to hate.

Spring 2013 Trends To Love

Black and White: Not your typical happy-go-lucky spring colors, but I’m loving it. No need to switch out your dark winter colors (brilliant). Plus, this trend is easy enough for the everyday gal to pull off.

Flats and Low Heels: Finally, wearing flats and low heels are in! No need to squeeze your feet into high heels and feel uncomfortable all day. This trend better be here to stay!

Shorts Suits: Ladies, put your skirts away and pull out your shorts. Turns out this look was on dozens of runways and is the perfect blend of masculine and holy hotness. I love this because you can mix and match what your already have in your closet.

Bold Stripes: In my mind, stripes never go out of style. So, this doesn't seem like a “new” trend, but we’ll take it.

Colors: Yellow, royal blue and white on white are the all the rage for this spring. Bright, clean and fresh - Love it!

The Trends That Are Questionable:

Peekabo Pieces: For some reason, I just can’t see the everyday woman wearing a dress with her skin peeking out. The idea of this trend is super chic and sexy, but I’m not sold.

Gold Evening Wear: You can never go wrong with gold, but implementing evening wear into the everyday will be tough. Feeling so-so about this one.

The Trends To Hate:

Exaggerated Sizes: Why would I ever want to put on a dress or pair of pants that made me look four sizes bigger than I am? This trend seems horrific and needs to end at the end of the runway.

Crop Tops and Bralettes: The only thing that comes to mind when thinking of crop tops is Jennifer Lopez dancing in the movie Selena. Bras are great... under a shirt. Period.

Bermuda Shorts: The Bermuda shorts that hit the runways of NYC looked uncomfortable and odd. I’m all for a loose pair of khaki Bermuda shorts, but what looks to be the newest trend is frumpy and frightful. Hopefully, the look of the runway will be toned down for the everyday gal. 

Taylor Kloss lives for the hunt—to find that one-of-a-kind piece that no one else has and to put amazing outfits together on a tight budget. To share her passion with the world and encourage shopping at vintage, thrift and consignment stores, she blogs on New England Vintage Chic, a journey of her adventures, advice, styles, and reviews of local second-hand stores throughout New England.
