Now that winter is slowly winding down, it’s time to assess the many—many!—looks that were displayed on Spring 2013 runways—and gauge which are worth investing in this season.

Cascading hemlines, collars, sleeves, shoulder detailing, and everything in between received flouncy, feminine treatment on Spring 2013 runways. We're betting ruffles—which might seem daunting at first—will be one of the season's most ubiquitous hits.
Everything from basic T-shirts to slim-cut skirts got foiled on spring runways—meaning extra-shiny, crinkly, and metallic. Interestingly, the shades weren't limited to typical silver and gold, but also included springtime shades like punchy yellow, lilac, blue and pink, as seen on this Burberry look.
