Trendspotting for Spring 2013

The weight of "what to buy/wear/toss" for Spring 2013 is cumbersome as warm(er) weather is several months away and not yet on our radar. We are all consumed by post-holiday weight loss anxiety, New Years resolution making and breaking, and the ice that threatens to break our windshield like an eager, klutz of a petty thief. However, we must go into that no-no place of optimism, short-sleeved shirts, and spring fever or vanquish into the abominable abyss of chunky sweaters and gaudy goulashes...forever.
Here are the trends spotted by Suburb Chic for Spring 2013! I am breaking this up into three separate posts for length (your Internet ADD is probably as bad as mine): clothing, accessories, and beauty. Today is clothing, wohoo. Let's observe, obsess, then overspend!

There seem to be so many huge trends as well as micro-trends (like peplums, bralets, and drop-waist dresses) that it's hard to go wrong. Multiple trends in one look also appeared on the runways; for instance, graphic abstract prints + 60's mod accessories. Really, it's all about statement-making...no matter what your mind is, speak on it this Spring & Summer. YOLO right?!
