Santee Alley Spring Trends

Spring 2013 is already making it's way into Santee Alley. We expect to see lots of bright colors and graphic denim, with shades of bright pastels taking center stage over last year's highlighter yellows and pinks. We're predicting seafom (the light green color pictured below) and coral to be THE colors for spring. Not surprisingly, we've noticed a lot of mixing and matching between the two colors on tops, dresses, and even bottoms.

Still hanging strong are studs and spikes. Fall's favorite trend can be adapted for spring by choosing lighter fabrics and colors. Using a studded belt to accent a top keeps the outfit stylish without going overboard. We also really liked this white, studded mini dress. The studs help accentuate the waist and curve lines, while giving a little edge to an otherwise very feminine look.

Graphic jeans are also coming back this Spring. We expect to see much brighter, bolder patterns than last season. For the very fashion daring, we currently have metallic faux leather skinnies and leopard print skinnies available in The Alley. While flower prints and colorful graphics tend to be more casual, these can be dressed up for going out or dressed down for hanging out, and who doesn't love a good pair of all purpose pants?

All the styles shown above are available at Stylin' Fashion located at 1053 Maple Ave. You can enter the store from Maple or Santee Alley. Stylin' Fashion offers a large selection of women's clothing, including mall brands like Forever 21 at discounted prices. For purchasing or pricing inquiries please contact the store directly at 213-746-7009.

Styles LA

By far our favorite display in Santee Alley is the back wall of Styles LA (located at 1042 S. Santee Alley) where the latest styles and trends are always on display. Styles LA stands out for their superior quality fashions and fair prices. Plus they have dressing rooms, and a great selection of knits and scarves for this chilly winter weather. We definitely recommend  you visit them at 1042 inside the Santee Alley.
