Bright clutches for spring 2013

The daytime clutch has been a staple in almost every Fashionistas’ wardrobe over the past two years. This go-to handbag has earned popularity due to its simplicity and natural versatility. Daytime clutches, in many cases, can go from day into evening in a snap; making dressing for the office, then the evening, while on the go-easy! Love that!

The daytime clutch is still hot for the spring 2013 season, and this season, just like in spring 2012, the daytime clutch is bright, bright, brighter than bright! Spring 2013 is all about three types of colors; vivid pastels, bright colors and neon hues. That means, two-thirds of the daytime clutches for the spring 2013 are bright or neon hued! Put your sunglasses on, it is getting bright in here!

If you purchased a brightly hued daytime clutch in spring 2012, you are all set for the spring 2013 season; unless of course there are more colors you wish to purchase! Then by all means, go shopping! Otherwise, if you do not have at least one bright clutch in your closet for spring 2013, this is the perfect time to invest in a fabulous, bright daytime clutch!

New York designers continued to show bright colors for fall 2013, so buying a daytime clutch this spring will make a great investment for the year. When shopping for the perfect daytime clutch in a bright hue this season, look for colors which will continue from spring into fall.

The most versatile colors for the 2013 year include Emerald green, cobalt blue and red. These three colors can easily be purchased for spring 2013 and carry into fall 2013; possibly even through winter 2014! Love that!

Orange, yellow and bright pink are also fabulous colors for spring 2013, although they may not be as versatile when fall 2013 hits. Something to think about while shopping

Spring 2013 trends: bright colors

Although pastels are a hot, up and coming color trend for the spring 2013 season, the bright color trend from 2012 is showing no sign of slowing down. New York and Milan designers favored the playful color palettes for their spring/summer 2013 collections and store buyers have followed suit by stocking shelves and racks with bright colors and even neon hues.

The bright colors from 2013 have carried into spring 2013; this means Fashionistas everywhere can shop their closets for spring before heading out to the store. Save money, love this!

For spring 2013, the most popular bright hues include pink, green, cobalt blue, blue, yellow and splashes of orange. Although emerald green has been the color of the year, shoppers have also been flocking to bright, candy pink for spring 2013. Hmmm . . . looks like emerald may have a little competition this season! Thankfully green and pink look quite nice together, so there shouldn’t be too much competition 

When shopping for colors this spring 2013 season, look for colors which are on the rise and will carry you into fall 2013. Emerald green and blue are two colors which have already been spotted in fall 2013 collections. These colors will make good investment purchases for the year. Pink, whether bright or pastel, is also an up-and-coming color which will make a good investment. Orange is starting to fade, so it is a good color to keep from last year, but try not to overbuy for 2013; it has not shown itself to be important in the fall 2013 collections yet.

Bright colors are easy to wear through accessories or apparel. If you are too shy to wear a bright dress or top, look for a bright pair of pointed toe pumps or a brightly colored daytime clutch. This is an easy way to add a fabulous pop of color to your wardrobe and these items can be worn with several different outfits. More bang for your buck! Fabulous!

Spring 2012 fashion trends for men: the bright suit

With the bright color trend in full swing for spring, it is no wonder that the trend translates into the world of men’s fashion. Normally found sporting black, navy or charcoal suits, men will be shying away from the boring suit of yesteryear and going full force into expressing their inner Male Fashion Maven by sporting bright and bold suits. That’s right, fashion forecasters, such as the ones at Pantone have declared that men will be bright this spring and summer. We can only hope.

Bright and colorful ties, shirts and handkerchiefs have already popped up in traditional black, navy and charcoal men’s suiting, but now, the color is transferring into the suit itself. It should be interesting to see if this trend ends up on the street. Will men push their traditional, boring suits which they have been wearing for the past thirty years into the back of their closets? Or will men laugh at this trend and continue to follow color trends with their tie, not their entire suit. It should be interesting to see if this trend takes to the street. 

What do you think? If you are a man, will you dare to go pink, yellow or some other bright hue or will you stick to navy blue? Ladies, do you want to see men as bright as you? Leave a comment below or join us on Facebook or Twitter to discuss!
