It’s that time of year again – Spring Forward! While none of us like losing an hour of sleep, especially on the weekend, we are very excited about that extra hour of daylight, the warm weather to come, and of course, Spring Fashion! Back in October, New York to Paris hosted Spring fashion weeks and teed up the Spring 2013 fashion trends. To get you excited for Spring, we’ll be bringing you the very latest wearable trends. On the runways, Kate Spade offered fun pops of color, 60′s silhouettes and bows, bows, bows. Kate Spade featured bow-ties, bow prints, bow appliqués, and bow accents on shoes, purses, you name it. Below is a sampling from Kate Spade’s Spring 2013 selection and a number of ways to embrace the bow trend yourselves! So have some fun and bow it up!
KATE SPADE SPRING 2013 BOW TREND: You Can Wear That!
From bow ties to bow appliqués, Kate Spade put a new spin on an old classic – the man’s bow-tie. Which interpretation of the bow-tie suits your fancy?
BOW TOPS: You Can Wear That!
These adorable bow tops put a playful spin on the traditional bow. From bow neck-ties to shoulder-ties, these bow tops add some interest to traditional feminine blouses. These blouses are sophisticated for work, but flirty enough for a date night. Any style works – what’s your favorite?
SIDE BOW TOPS: You Can Wear That!
If you prefer a subtle bow detail, these tops offer a trendy bow touch at the shoulder or even the hip. These tops are sweet and cute – perfect for brunch or a day of shopping.
BACK BOW TOPS: You Can Wear That!
Take the bow detail from cute to sexy with these back bow tops that show some skin with a bow-tie detail to finish the look. These tops are sexy enough for a night of dancing!
BOW DRESSES: You Can Wear That!
Sometimes bows aren’t as obvious as you would think. Choose a color-blocked bow detailed dress or a monochromatic look – these dresses add some interest to an otherwise simple dress. Mix it up a little with these dresses!
BOW EARRINGS: You Can Wear That!
Studs are a thing of the past. Bow it up with these stud bow earrings in a variety of metals and colors. If you prefer statement pieces, try on these chandelier stone earrings or these intricate silver bow detailed earrings. Put these on and we assure you – people will be looking in the right places, if you know what we mean.
BOW RINGS: You Can Wear That!
Who needs a diamond to tie the knot? These rings add bow details to stones, beads, or painted metal. In gold or silver, these rings will adorn your hand and show people you’re a gift.
BOW NECKLACES, CUFFS, & WATCHES: You Can Wear That!
If earrings or rings weren’t enough for ya, we have bow necklaces, cuffs, and even watches. Take your pick – bows are making a statement in every piece of jewelry.
BOW SHOES: You Can Wear That!
We saved the best for last – bow details are abound on shoes! Whether you like pumps, flats, or sandals, we have bow-detailed shoes for each of you! Our absolute favorite is the strappy red sandal with ankle bow detail. If we could wear these shoes everyday, we would. But, if red is not your color, try a navy satin sandal with bow detail. For some bling, we have a black sandal with gold ankle bow detail.
If strappy isn’t your style, try these gold bow or color-blocked peep-toe pumps. For a new twist on a classic pump, try these suede or patent leather pumps with ankle-back details. Last, but not least, we have flat options as well – bling bow flip-flops and ballet flats with ankle bow straps or toe detail.
We just love shoes, don’t you? There’s a reason Mr. Big proposed to Carrie with shoes. Nothing says love like shoes.
