Top Spring Fashion Trends
Brrrr! That winter wind just keeps whipping through the trees and wreaking havoc with my hair, not to mention my lovely spring wardrobe! I know, I know, it's way too early to be tucking away my snuggly sweaters and fleece-lined boots, but I am soooo ready for a little sunshine and warm weather! And since it appears I won't be seeing much of either for the foreseeable future, I'll just have to make do with a little fashion expedition: The search for the most wearable trends for Spring 2013. The girls here at She She Me have searched high and low, far and wide and come up with a few of our favorite trends for Spring!
Sheer & Peekaboo Pieces
So many gorgeous fabrics and styles this spring — you’ll have no problem finding something sexy to wear: Daring cutouts, midriff-baring separates, leg-baring slits, and sheer fabrics were all over the runway. The beauty of this trend? There’s a peekaboo option for every body shape (and level of modesty) up for grabs.
I love spring’s big, bold, uncomplicated stripes! With denim, they’re all-American; with navy, they’re nautical-chic; and worn head-to-toe, they’re just plain cool. Bonus: You’ll definitely be able to wear them for seasons — even years — to come.
Spring’s sporty dresses — with their flirty full skirts, casual roll-up sleeves and figure-flattering fits — are going to distract quite a few guys this season, we guarantee it. We love them because they work just as easily with wedges and high-heel sandals as they do with comfy canvas sneakers.
The slouchy, cool-girl shorts that were all over the New York runways this season are perfect for every girl who never felt like she could pull off those cheek-baring cutoffs so beloved by the masses. They’re ultra chic, fam-friendly, and flattering; seriously, what’s not to love? Looks great with a pair of strappy flat sandals!
Black and White
“Spring trends” might typically call to mind Easter-egg colors and happy-go-lucky floral prints, but this season, designers put the emphasis on strong black-and-white looks (And yes, there were a few floral prints, too). Appropriate to wear year-round, easy to pull off at every budget, and sleek enough to work at the office or on date night, this trend, in apparel and accessories, is sheer perfection.
Flats and Low Heels
Sexy ’90s pointy heels are back and have been modernized with everything from dainty ankle straps to exquisite florals. There will always be a moment for four-inch pumps (and that moment is date night), but these ladylike heels are such a nice option to have on hand; as well as these adorable flats. Extra cool points if you wear them with slouchy boyfriend jeans or Bermuda shorts to brunch with the girls.
It just isn't spring without fabulous floral's! There is always something so fresh and ladylike about bringing blooms to the forefront of fashion. This spring you'll find florals everywhere from dresses, silky scarves and accessories, to skinny jeans, sweet flirty tops and shoes! Just remember, a little floral goes a long way — no need to look like a walking flower market!
Well my dears, time to get cracking! Winter is on the way out and spring is almost here!

She She Me's Favorite Things
Love Lady Gaga's New Perfume - FAME
Now that you've seen the starts walk the Red Carpet at the Golden Globes, and the Oscars are just around the corner, Kerry Washington, Scandal star, was interviewed by E! and raved about being a huge fan of Lady Gaga’s perfume, Fame. Kerry said, “I literally was one of the first people in the world to have her Fame perfume…I am obsessed!”
This perfume is literally one-of-a-kind. It is black! Seriously! It becomes invisible once airborne. I love the press description of the perfume.The scent is haunted by tears of poisonous belladonna. The bitten "death cherries" that have created dark beauty for time eternal. Balanced with a black veil of burning incense. The obsessive, opulent note is brightened by dripping honey and luscious apricot nectar brushed with saffron. A glorious floral layer of crushed jasmine sambac and pressed tiger orchid tops the scent with bruised beauty.
