Spring Fashion Essentials

Spring 2013 marked our calendars weeks ago, but Missouri is just now kicking winter flurries to the curb and welcoming beautiful weather. It’s finally time to break out this season’s trends, and CGM has the dish on spring 2013’s fashion must-haves!

Ankle Strap Pumps

Many would think that a sandal with wild designs and crazy molds would make our list of spring essentials, however, this year, an elegant, yet sexy heel has stolen our hearts. We’ve seen fashion-forward celebs like Rihanna rock this simple sandal throughout 2013 and stylish Missourians -- eager for warm weather -- will finally be able to debut this coveted shoe themselves!

60s Sunglasses

Designers have taken the mod design of retro sunglasses -- made famous by John Lennon -- and altered them into fresh, fun and bold accessories! Eye-catching sunnies were huge on fashion week’s runways and 60s sunglasses are the perfect way to make a statement this spring!

Splurge: Illesteva
Save: Urban Outfitters
Bargain: Nasty Gal

Vegan Leather Shorts

Leather is making a swift transition this year. Instead of the leather pants and jackets we frenzied over during the winter, adorable shorts, dresses and peplum tops thrive in vegan leather this spring. Leather shorts in different styles, colors and detailing will be a favorite go-to item this season!

Splurge: Rag & Bone
Save: American Apparel
Bargain: Nasty Gal

Printed Trousers

Soft fabrics and bold prints always rule spring fashion and it’s no surprise this season an array of printed trousers are filling retail store racks and our hearts. Paisley, reflecting designs and geometric printed pants paired with contrasting ankle strap pumps, a pair of bold 60s sunglasses and a lightweight blouse will make the perfect ready-to-wear spring 2013 ensemble!
