Spring/Summer 2013. top trends.

Saturday, May 04, 2013

Right after Spring/Summer 2013. fashion weeks which took place last year across fashion capitals I wrote bit by bit about noticeable trends in color, cut and style which took over the runways and consequently stores and the streets with first rays of sunshine coming out.

Since I got a couple of questions on where to find a specific trend post, I thought it might be helpful to summarize them all in one post which might serve you as a useful cheap sheet when you decide to go and update a bit your wardrobe for warm days ahead.

A number of my girlfriends with more classical, feminine and elegant style have been sporting this trend for years now but all white trend has definitely made a big come back, not only in summer dresses but also in smart business wear.

I wrote a number of posts with inspirational pieces on this trend: Summer Whites  | Spring whites | White Spring ahead!

Monochrome or graphic trend for me is one of the key trends this season. For majority, most memorable monochrome trend will be Marc Jacobs's for Louis Vuitton black or white squares but Michael Kors, Balmain and Oscar de la Renta also played with black and white graphics this season, we have seen all from harlequin to stripes and squares.

I wouldn't actually say floral print is a trend which comes at goes much, it is a Spring/Summer staple and we can see it every year more or less but what I really like this season are beautiful floral digital prints featured also on sportswear in many collections.

Warmer season always brings out colors from our closets but for this season across collections we could have seen pieces in basic, primary colors: red, blue, yellow and green, with my favorite being bright lemon yellow. I am definitely a mood dresser so the moment the sun is out, I am in a good mood and  my closet screams with bright colored jeans and Summer dresses. I covered the topic of bright warm weather colors in this recent post Colors of Summer.

I feel like Michael Kors was the boldest when it comes to using color in his SS 2013. collection.

This is my third favorite trend next to all white and floral print. I also love to wear deep V cuts to my top pics are pieces from Celine's SS 13. line but I also love Calvin Klein and Nina Ricci for smart and elegant business wear with a tease. This was from RTW side, however on the more artsy part of the fashion - couture, the master of cage match is Sarah Burton for McQueen with her 'bee keeper' collection.

Aside of a cage match there is also so called peekaboo or see through trend which is quite similar when comes to tease, sheerness and playfulness, only patterns and fabrics are a bit different.

On a more structural side we could notice deep V cuts (like on above photo of Celine piece) and a whole lot of ruffles which create a really nice volume, romantic Spring flower feel and playfulness to the dresses.
Chloe did some wonderful ruffle pieces my favorite of which is bellow white piece with both ruffles and V deep V cut, but there is also now famous Balenciaga ruffle bottom dress which was featured in many advertorials after it was shown on runway.

Most dominant collection for this season when it comes to bright metallic colors was Burberry collection with purses, trenches and skirts in rainbow color spectrum. I have recently wrote a post - Metallic inspiration about wearing metallic as day-wear in Spring/Summer season. For me personally Burberry metallics are a bit to loud and I prefer mine to be in silver and gold shades.

On top of my favorite 7 top trends for this SS 2013. season, there are of course more prevalent trends worth mentioning such as leather pieces, traditionally popular pastel colors, bright neon details, oriental prints and cuts, boyish shorts and sporty bomber jackets as well as rich blue, green and azure sea colors with warm Summer vacation months approaching.

What are some of your favorite SS 2013.trends lovelies?
