Floral
The floral trend is coming on strong for Spring 2013. We saw it on the runways, and now it's huge in the real world. One of my favorite pieces is the J. Crew Collection silk pant in Painter's Floral. Find them at J. Crew Polaris and Easton for $495.

Monochromatic
Be bold! This is for the fashionista who doesn't mind making a statement-a very chic one. Color on color is modern and fresh. Take this look straight from the Gucci Spring 2013 show. Order from your favorite sales associate at Saks Fifth Avenue; shirt is $1,250; pants are $1,200; and bag is $1,050.

Nautical
You don't have to vacation in Capri to get in on the nautical trend. But you can look like you do! Michael Kors is the best at doing nautical for the everyday woman. Accessorize your look with his canvas and leather trim Hamilton tote. Find it at Nordstom for $298.

Embellished
What are our wardrobes without a little sparkle? As seen on the runways of Fendi and Alexander McQueen, embellished is hot for Spring. Support local and get your bling on with this KiK Vantage pullover for $118. Dress it up with a pencil skirt and heels, dress it down with denim and flats.

Leather
Speaking of supporting local, stop by Thread on Grandview for this Graham & Spencer leather jacket for $812. Spring leather is light, airy, and this is the perfect piece to thrown on over a cocktail dress on a chilly night without compromising your look.
