We’ve analysed the runways and made our style predictions. Check out our pick of the hottest fashion trends for 2013 now.
A return to femininity dominates the fashion trends for 2013
The hourglass shape is back in a range of '50s-inspired pieces featuring A-line skirts, belted waists and pretty details on collars and sleeves. Ruffles also get the thumbs up. Another feminine hit is the re-emergence of lace. Featured on the ramp at Giambattista Valli and Burberry lace tops, skirts and pants are all fashion favourites this year.
Graphic prints are one of the hottest fashion trends for 2013
Spotted on runways at Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton graphic prints crack the nod once again. This time round the look is all about being bold. Try jailhouse-style black and white stripes, checkerboard patterns or symmetrical swirls for maximum appeal. The key to working this look is to keep accessories to a minimum and let the print shine in once key piece. Try a striped blazer with a pair of black leggings for a chic look.
Revive the '90s grunge – a favourite fashion trend this year
The grunge look is equal parts slouchy and girly – the perfect balance of toughness and sweetness. Think floral prints and dainty collarless blouses with edgy biker jackets and boots. Even the humble T-shirt gets a feminine twist with slash necks and sheer, soft, flowing fabrics for a modern grunge look.
Throw a spanner into the works by suiting up
Structured blazers and tailored pants are also another winner in the fashion trends for 2013 – as long as they’re worn separately. Mix things up by wearing this look with another trend, like opting for a blazer with a '60s-inspired graphic print or wearing your tailored pants (slim fit darling) with a lace blouse.
Accessories that lead the way in fashion trends for 2013
No outfit is complete without accessories! The following items make a huge fashion statement this year:
- Oversized statement clutch bag
- Rustic cuffs
- Baseball caps
- Skinny belts
- Metallic shoes
Colourwise you can’t go wrong with Emerald green Pantone’s colour for 2013.
