Window shopping is one of my favorite past times. Sometimes I just want to get out and be inspired, so I take a stroll through the local mall and gaze at the window displays. The spring trends for 2013 seemed boring when I saw them in the fashion shows and magazines, but I’m enamored of the new looks now that I see in store windows. The minimalism that walked down the runway has been transformed into something fun with bright colors. Meanwhile, classic navy stripes bring some seriousness to all the joyful prints and hot colors.
Navy Stripes and Denim Blue
Navy blue seems to be the solid dark color of choice this spring. It’s used in both wide and narrow stripes and mixed with color and pattern. Denim and chambray never go out of fashion, but they seem especially appealing this spring as a foil to all the clean bright colors and prints displayed in store windows.
Pink and navy blue look great together, and the retailers are taking advantage of this crisp, clean color way in window displays all over my local mall. Pink is also being mixed with white and used in pretty floral prints to great effect.
Neon Brights in Yellow and Green
Neon looked like a flash-in-the-pan last year but rather than fading away into just another fad it seems to be really taking hold this year. Brights are hot and pink especially so, but neon green and yellow are everywhere as well.
