SS13 Trend Report!

Hi Guys! 

This is one of my favourite posts to write, a look ahead at the new season at what styles, colours and trends came of the catwalk last September. 
It is always really good when the new season starts, don't get me wrong I did love the winter vampy, leather and black styles, but it is really nice to start focusing on new pieces and  I always find that it fuels my passion for fashion, as when you have been used to the same styles for a while your inspiration starts to run low. 

So, I am super excited about this SS13, as there are lots of gorgeous trends to give our wardrobes a new lease of life and it's not all spring/summer pastels like you might expect. One of the things I am most excited about is the accessibility of this seasons trends, they are all really wearable and will quickly and easily be built into your everyday looks. 

(And that is the thing about trends is that you can't be a slave to them, it is just how you adapt them to your own personal style)

So, here is the main highlights of what we will be lusting over this spring! 

Stripe it Lucky 

Whether they are vertical, horizontal or slanted, stripes are the hottest look for this season. Michel Kors and Marc Jacobs showcased them in gorgeous everyday casual/preppy styles and then Oscar De la Renta showed us how to take stripes to a glam new level! Whether it's day or night stripes will be your best friend! 

All White 

This is my personal favourite trend, you all know how much I love wearing white dresses, so when I saw white hitting the catwalk my fashion heart did a flutter! Victoria Beckham's white sporty skirts and dresses, were perfect for the summer, think both beach and city chic, and Chanel channelled everything that is timeless and classic about wearing this colour, it might upset the bride but you can wear white this wedding season too!
 I love it and can't wait to start (adding) to my white collection. 

Swinging 60's

Louis Vuitton was the real trailblazer of this trend, the entire collection was a nod back to short skirts, checks and beehives. What I really love about this style is the little extras that make the look, like the head bands and belts that will instantly update you look.

Eastern Promise

Eastern/ Asian influences have been over the catwalk for the past couple of seasons and see no sign of moving. Prada's stunning prints and Obi belts firmly put them on the map for SS13. We are already seeing this on the high street with kimonos popping up in Topshop and ASOS already. 

Monochrome Magic

Don't think this summer is all about pastels, Black and white is defiantly the colours to be seen in this season. The bold and bright contrast is actually really refreshing and will be so easy to build into our existing wardrobes. I loved Jason's Wu's quite formal and structured take on it, maintaining beautiful lines while being  season appropriate, so clever. 

And as well as all these fab designs to get your shopping teeth into there is also some other specific styles to look out for! 

All of these "micro2 trends can be mixed in with the 5 big ones above, which is the most exciting part of putting looks together, you can pick and choice what you like and don't like and more importantly what suits you. For example if you are a lovely petite lady, then the bermuda shorts may not be for you,as it might stunt your legs, but you will look amazing in a sheer blouse. 

Well, I hope you like my report and I hope it comes in handy when you are hitting the shops for your new season pieces. I would love to know what you are most excited about buying and what are your favourite trends!
I am currently in the busiest week ever, I have got a really big work presentation next week and there is soo much to do for it. But I made sure I left time to watch the Golden Globe red carpet! I love the awards season and seeing what amazing frocks everyone wears, there was some stunning dresses on Sunday, I especially loved our own British Michelle Dockery from Downton, who wore a beautiful Alex Vauthier dress.
