Black and white pairings were all over the spring 2013 runways; from black and white graphic-print dresses to just mixing the solid colors together, the trend was shown in just about every way. Most of us already have plenty of black and white pieces in our closets; start pairing the two together and everyone will think you’re right on trend.

Recycle Your Fall Leather

If you happened to stock up on any leather pieces this fall, they’re staying strong as a trend through spring, too! Now, that doesn’t mean you should bust out those leather leggings, but if you did invest in a cute leather top, transition it to spring wear by pairing it with a light, spring skirt.

Show Your Stripes

Designers like Oscar de la Renta and Michael Kors had a love affair with stripes this spring season, which is great for us because that’s a trend that’s accessible at any price point. Pull out those striped tops and dresses from your closet because this spring, they’re back in vogue.

Think: White

Nothing screams spring like bright white, and designers loved the non-color this season. Go ahead and thrift through your closet for your best LWD for a fresh, fashion forward look. Have some fun pairing white with metallic, colored or even print-heavy accessories.

Bring Back Florals

Florals? For spring? We know…it’s groundbreaking. But hey, that just means whatever floral-prints you’ve invested in in the past can likely be revived once again! Not a fan of an all-over print? Try an accessory like this floral-print scarf, instead.

What spring fashion trend are you most looking forward to?

    Great post. Easy, nice images, and now I don’t have to buy a ton of mags (having no clue about the trends being out of the loop and in my own headspace). Found you via The Style Confessions.
    BONUS — black + white striped moto jacket = four trends in one garment + add a floral scarf = EVERYTHING (and maybe you won’t look like a trend salad).
