Even if the weather across Europe currently disagrees that spring is on the way, the pages inside the Northern Hemisphere’s magazine titles are all to happy to usher it along. And why not: an excuse to throw ourselves headfirst into spring 2013’s trending fashion themes couldn’t come too soon.

In Marie Claire Belgium you’ll find one such editorial by Hicham Riad that embraces spring with open arms: bold colour, bucketloads of light, and an optimistic sentiment permeate every shot. Milou Sluis in short bangs and classic makeup has a 60s vibe; looks ready to step aboard a luxury yacht in a billowing striped trapeze dress; and inspires spring beauty in winged out blue eyeshadow.
