Wardrobe Must-Haves: Spring/Summer 2013
The various Spring/Summer runways were overflowing with new trends for the New Year. The most common inclusions for designers were mixed prints, leather, lace, wool, nautical stripes, and embellishments such as feathers and exaggerated ruffles. Colour trends included splashes of red, purple, pastels and green as well as a return to the basic greys and blacks. Although glitz and sparkle were seen in some designer’s collections, the masculine look was still overpowering with dark military greens and dark denim still gracing the catwalk.
Colour Pops and Pastels
Bold, neutral colours will always be in style and offer stability and depth to any outfit. A bright, plain red skirt that is seductive and sensual or a dark, anchoring blue blazer are staples for the modern woman’s wardrobe. These colours are also perfect for colour blocking, a trend that is not on the demise for the upcoming Spring/Summer season.
Also trending in 2013, especially for Springtime, are colourful prints and pastels. Pastels are subtle and uncomplicated to wear and can be worn from head to toe or paired with another bright colour. Have a look at Zalando who offer a range of pretty pastel clothing for women. Match your look with pastel accessories (i.e.: your handbag, pumps, and nail polish) for a cheerful and distinctive look.
Ruffles, Frills and Lace
This season is all about being classy, chic and elegant – think classic Audrey Hepburn style. The ruffle and lace trend has been carried over from 2012 because these delicate adornments partner immaculately with other in-season trends. Team modern day functionality with a hint of femininity by wearing a silk ruffled skirt or a blouse with a frill collar. Or, wear a sheer chiffon white lace dress to evoke a romantic and innocent aesthetic. A classic and demure lace dress can be found in the range offered by Zalando.
The trends for 2013 are both captivating and incredibly beautiful. The trends are bright and bold yet feminine with light palette and fabrics being the central trend. The outfits were accompanied by sleek up-do’s and simple, chic makeup.
