    Skinny jeans, colorblocking, babydoll dresses… there are only a few of the trends that have crossed that threshold from seasonal novelty to multi-year staples. And the just-finished spring '13 shows at NYFW presented lots of fresh, new trends that have real potential to last.

    While we didn't see a directional shift like last year's obsession with athletic wear, we did spot quite a few silhouettes, colors, and styling quirks that have had a chance to settle and mellow, meaning tons more wearable, flattering options for you. From macrame that's actually sexy to a new way to play with perforation, we've got the spring '13 trends that deserve some of your precious closet space.
