2013 Fashion Trends
TREND #1: LACE
Lace was huge on the runways for spring. It is definitely a return to delicate, feminine dressing. I love the idea of lace detailing on skirts, pants and coats. Lace tops are great to pair with a structured blazer to offset the sweetness. A super easy way to integrate the lace trend into spring is a lace tight!
Sixties graphic prints like stripes and checkerboard were huge on the spring runways. Strong prints were sent down the runway in all silhouettes, from gowns to minis to suit sets. The best way to integrate this into your spring wardrobe is piece by piece. A strong jacket or blazer pairs well with a dark jean or cropped pant where as a skirt or pant goes well with a classic button down or a super soft t-shirt in black or white. You can keep your whole outfit graphic and on trend without turning into an optical illusion!
It is equal parts slouchy and girly with a great mix of patterns and proportions. It’s about a balance of texture and toughness. An example would be to sport a soft floral with structured, reinterpreted biker jacket.
For spring, layer a great knit over a delicate dress and add a great boot. Mixing prints like floral and plaid with a solid in between is also a great way to step into this trend!.
Four Wardrobe Must-Haves
1) A black leather moto jacket. This is an Elle wardrobe staple for all seasons. Leather adds great texture and toughness to almost all pieces of a woman’s wardrobe. Cool with jeans, pencil skirts or over dresses – always a great investment piece.
2) Skinny dark jeans (slim cut). Denim finds its way onto every runway season and it’s why it’s on the trend list each season. Dark denim is seasonless and a necessary addition for spring. Pair it with a blazer or leather and add accessories to go from day to night.
3) A blouse or skirt with ruffle detail. Ruffles and romantic details were huge this spring! Tone it down with a ruffle detail on a blouse for a bit of romance without being overwhelming.
4) A structured blazer. Another major trend this past spring was suiting. We love the idea of breaking up a suit to still keep it cool! Pair it with jeans and a t-shirt to keep the ease.
Don’t forget that this year designers are emphasizing ACCESSORIES!!While color blocking has been a huge trend in both accessories and apparel over the course of 2012, the trend continues with a larger emphasis on accessories for the spring 2013 season. Designers showed color blocking on top handle satchels, daytime clutches, shoulder bags, wallets and shoes paired with both solid colored apparel and prints on the spring/summer 2013 runways; showing the importance of the trend in accessories.
