Los Angeles Fashion Week Spring 2013 Review

The Spring 2013 collections for LA Fashion Week were the perfect representation of SoCal’s laidback and eclectic fashion scene.  LA designers did not disappoint, showcasing lines that will surely lift your spirits come springtime!  Here are some of the hottest trends that hit the LA runways:

Snow White

Soft shades of white, ivory and cream dominated the runways during LA Fashion Week.  From classic to bohemian silhouettes, key looks were updated for spring with an airy, feminine flair.

Sheer collared blouses, high waisted skirts and sheaths were romantic but refined at AGAIN and Luciana Salamone.

Whimsical maxi dresses in luxurious silk and lace were highlights at Mike Vensel and Odylyne, adding a modern and elegant touch to this key style.

Pretty Prints

From geometric to flirty designs, vibrant prints were in full swing for spring 2013.  Printed pants were both cropped and billowy, proving to be a strong statement piece for fashionistas.

Ladylike florals showed up on skirts and cropped jackets at Basil and Living Doll Los Angeles, pairing beautifully with sheer tops.

And fanciful dresses were adorned with artsy motifs at Naven, reminding us all why we all love spring!

Denim Remastered

The essential fashion item, denim, had a complete makeover for spring 2013.  While jeans are a style staple, Louis Verdad took this versatile fabric to new heights.

Denim suiting was sexy and sophisticated, with shorts, peplums and lace adding to the refreshing designs.

Caplets and bomber jackets in lightweight denim will be the perfect outerwear for the warmer season ahead.

And the LBD may have new competition with this denim number, a one shoulder belted dress with a full lace skirt!
