Florals are in for spring 2013. Pair them with a solid-colored skirt or solid-colored pair of pants.

Bright colors always look great with a bold necklace or belt.

Skinny pants paired with a top with a great line are always a hit.

Bolero-style skirts are flowy and just the look for spring in South Florida. Pair these skirts with solid tops so the lines do not compete with one another.

Pair floral shorts with a button down and some great pumps. This is a great everyday look.

Floral tops as well as floral shorts are fun trends for the spring. It looks so beautiful to see flowers blooming in the spring and also appearing more on ensembles everywhere. Floral tops are romantic and look especially great on blouses, but even look good as tanks, tees, etc. Floral shorts are great options for Miami where wearing shorts nearly all year-round can get boring. Patterned shorts are typically unexpected looks and they are feminine and can be a great complement to a springtime tan (natural or otherwise).

Bright colors are attention getting and also scream optimism. Have fun with the options but just don't go overboard with the look from head to toe as that look has passed from the neon head-to-toe trend (of course neon is not completely out of style for spring - just focus on accent pieces rather than a full look). Skinny pants still hold strong - no surprise since they are versatile and sexy and open a world of styling possibilities. Bolero skirts are in for spring. Enjoy the trend while it lasts as it is one of those looks that tends to go in and out of style very quickly since it is such a specific look and the trend really spreads like wildfire. When items are so trendy, it's best to never spend too much money on them, which is another great reason to shop from a boutique such as Mina Miami Beach.

Mina Miami Beach boutique is a trendy fashion boutique in the North Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach. Aside from the great merchandise, this shop stands out because the great-looking styles also happen to be very affordable. Michelle, Monica or Marianne assist customers with their shopping selections as well as with great tips for styling and pairing ensembles. They run their shop remembering all of the elements that make boutique shopping in person a really good time. Aside from regular shopping hours, Mina hosts fun events from time to time such as trunk shows. Their last trunk show was even promoted by Latin Grammy-nominated sensation Pitbull.
