Spring Summer 13 Trends : Part 2

Following on from last weeks SS13 Trend Report here are a few more of my predictions for SS13

Trend - Shift Style Tailoring
L-R Antoni & Alison, Mary Katrantzou, PPQ, Matthew Williamson

I am a huge fan of shift dresses and tops and I feel they suit most body shapes. Length can vary to suit the wearers taste and confidence levels but most designers kept the skirt either knee or mini length. You can channel a modern 60’s vibe like at PPQ or make a shift more exciting with patterning as seen at Mary Katrantzou.

Trend - Stripes
L-R Paul Smith, PPQ, Temperley London, Zoe Jordan

Stripes were everywhere. Mixed with another print, bold, thin multi-coloured, monochrome you name it you can wear it. Stripes can be a great tool for accentuating your figure too, slimming you down or lengthening you if you need it.

Trend - Beige and Blush
L-R Burberry Prorsum, Felder Felder, J. Js Lee, Maria Grachvogel

Beige and Blush tones are perfect spring shades, light and airy but again you have to be careful which shade of these you choose. Wear with white for a perfect casual evening outfit, switch out your usual cream top for a beige one with jeans or even wear blush shoes to give the illusion of leg length.

Trend - Jackets

Jackets are your SS13 go to cover up. Leave the cardigans at home ladies and instead opt for a lightweight jacket that nips in slightly at the waist. Tailoring is looser but still has shape, sleeves worn between mid-forearm and wrist, though is you do want a shorter length take your mid-arm length and push up to your elbows as seen at Zoe Jordan for a casual feel. 

I hope having done these reports it will help you pick out some of the trends you would like to incorporate into your wardrobe. Remember to keep your own style and not try to replicate something. Originality is key to being stylish. As I said last week these are just the trends I have noticed and are therefore by no means what will be coming in but I am looking forward to seeing if I’m right about any of them.

Which of these trends will you try? What trends do you predict for SS13?
