Spring is just around the corner and I am so excited about some of the trends seen on the runway for Spring 2014! One of my favorites is the pastel trend. While one of my favorite colors to wear is black and I love my neutrals, adding color into your wardrobe can be so much fun. These are some of my favorite picks for spring. I made sure to choose some affordable pieces, but I could just not resist adding those baby blue Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and I love those Valentino sunnies. I’m sure there will be similar styles popping up at more affordable locations this season.

Two more trends seen on both the runway and street style are crop tops and midi skirts. And although the mention of crop tops may remind you of belly baring Britney Spears circa 1999 with “Hit Me Baby One More Time”, don’t worry! The more recent crop top trend is much more wearable and less risque, mostly because the tops are slightly longer, normally hitting just above the belly button and are best paired with skirts or pants that are a little bit higher waisted. Click here if you’d like to see how I wore one of my favorite crop tops.

I have yet to search out the perfect midi skirt, but petite ladies beware! This trend may be more difficult to pull off because skirts that hit below the knee have a tendency to cut us off and make us look shorter, so find that perfect heel and make the trend more wearable.
