Log into 2013's Biggest Fashion Trends!

A new year brings on many great things. New beginnings, resolutions to a better you, and our favorite, new fashion trends! Read on below to see some of our favorite fashion trends and let us know in the comments on the Barbizon of Akron Facebook Page what you would do to make these styles your own!

Stripes
Stripes are all the rage this year! Almost every designer from Marc Jacobs to Christian Louboutin have incorporated them into their 2013 lines. We at Barbizon of Akron think they're simply to die for!

Feather Manicures
These quick and easy manicures scream "STYLE!" Start with a base coat, add a top coat, press the tip of a feather into the top coat, let dry for 30 seconds, clip the remaining portion of the feather that is not on your nail, and seal with a second top coat! These are simply beautiful!

Emerald
Simple as that, everything emerald! Pantone has announced Emerald as the 2013 color of the year (they must have really enjoyed Oz the Great and Powerful). From clothes and accessories to nail polish to eye shadow, you can rock this color all year round! The Barbizon of Akron staff has already begun rocking it.

Haute Hair Accessories
A lot of people think that style statements come from clothes; this year we can prove it also comes from hair! Grab yourself some big bows and ribbons, or if you're a bit more daring, try out a tiara or over-the-top flowers to pin into your up-dos. Make the accessories as big as you can handle and really make a statement!

Sporty Dresses
With flirty A-line cut hems and cuts that show off beautiful shoulders, sporty dresses are all the rage for 2013. They are the ultimate outfit for 2013 as they can be worn with just about anything. Dress them up with cute accessories and heels, or keep it casual in a pair of cute sneakers. It's all up to you!

After seeing the 2013 spring trends, Barbizon of Akron wanted to share the love and help everyone find a new style to help them express themselves! We really hope this blog helps and that you found some cute ideas to try out. Shine on, Barbizon of Akron!
