Spring 2013 Fashion Trends

Chinese new year is just around the corner. Have you done your new year shopping? If not, perhaps you can add some of the following spring fashion items/elements into your shopping list!

#1:  Short suits
This is the hot key for spring fashion 2013 in most fashion webpages. It is simple to match and yet look really trendy. You can choose darker color such as black or navy blue for attending formal events or brighter color like vintage pink or bright red for afternoon high tea with besties.

#2: Peplum
Peplum is refering to a short flared, gathered, or pleated strip of fabric attached at the waist of a woman's jacket, dress, or blouse. To have a chic look, you can get a peplum dress or match a peplum top with a body-con skirt. If you want a casual look, a pastel color peplum top with shorts will do. 

#3: Bermuda shorts
If you are a pants lover, you might love bermuda pants - slouchy, cool-girl, flattering shorts. Too bad is that it might not really suits Asian with smaller body figure like me. Match it with a pair of heels will be better.

#4: Bold stripes
Vertical or horizontal stripes? I think you can go for either one or even have both in one piece! Matching a bold stripes over-sized top with a pair of skinny jeans and loafers are trendy enough for you to go out.

#5: Shoulder-cutout top
This gonna be a must-have item especially for those korean fashion lover. It's been a while in the market but I think it will last for at least one season!

How about shoes?
For flats, I will definitely go for loafers because it's easy matching and suitable for most people. By the way, I'm planning to get a pair of sneakers too!

However, being stylish or fashionable is not by putting all these elements in one shot. We ought to mix and match. I believe most girls will spend at least 15 minutes on matching their outfits before going out. Headache huh? There's a solution actually - It's a website where you can create and design your own look easily.

Here are some examples created by me :D
