Punxsutawney Phil has spoken: Spring is coming--to retail stores, that is. Before you step blindly into the sea of pastel and paisley, consult our Spring Trends 2013 Guide. We?ll be rolling out four weeks of shopping how-tos to help you sift through the trends that are worth your while.
First up, leather. Here?s what to look for:
Boxy Shapes Skintight leather pants are a thing of the past. This season we?re embracing comfortable leather in a more minimalist (read: breathable) shape. We love this cropped top ($398) from Tibi and this simple leather tee ($69) from Tinley Road. Wear either over a white button-down now and pair with an A-line skirt later in the season.
Bright Colors Your black moto jacket will always be in style, but that?s not to say all leather has to feel tough. Experiment with colored leather like this feminine coral dress ($498) from Rachel Roy or this vibrant pencil skirt ($495) from Milly. Don?t sweat the warmer temps--both items are surprisingly airy.
Embellishments Not ready for a full-blown look? Wear leather as an accent, like on a casual military jacket ($158) or a patterned top ($114). Cutouts--like the ones on this Nicole Miller blouse ($71, on sale)--also add a fun twist. Still, a word to the wise: Less is more.
