Even though some of you are still bundled up in a winter coat, spring will be here before we know it. So, now is the perfect time to familiarize yourself with the upcoming trends. I know, I know, you’ve already got enough on your mind. But, don’t worry; we’re here to give you the bullet points and make it easy. It’s vital that you know what the trends are in order to be “that mom” – the one who always looks modern and sophisticated, even when she’s dropping the kids off at school. To that end, wearing outfits that are current is the most effective way to look (and feel) your best.

Each season brings many trends, but not all of them are appropriate for a mom. So, we’ve sorted through the list and singled out the ones that will be most conducive to your lifestyle. Armed with this knowledge, you’ll be able to identify the latest styles in stores and make purchases with confidence. (Watch for our upcoming shopping posts focusing on some of these trends in the coming weeks.)

Wearable spring fashions for moms:

  • Stripes (of all colors, not just black and white)

  • Sheer fabric

  • Ruffles (especially unique, architectural ones)

  • Leather

  • Floral/botanical prints

  • Colored lace

  • Black and white patterns

  • White (depending on the age of your children, this may or may not be an option)

  • Asian influence

  • Sporty dresses

  • Bright hues (especially royal blue)

And speaking of colors, every year Pantone sets the standard for the colors  for each season. Below are the shades for spring 2013. Keep these in mind when shopping for your new on-trend clothes and accessories.
