The thought of summer may seem a lifetime away, but it’s never too early to begin stocking your wardrobe with the latest summer trends. After the Spring/Summer 2013 collections were revealed in late 2012, there was a lot of buzz created about some of the key trends displayed. Here are my top five favourite trends and how you can incorporate it in your wardrobe.
This style is definatly not for the faint-hearted! These outrageous, bold prints are really a head turner. These prints vary from futuristic squares, continental patterns and the timeless leopard print. Being worn as an oversized top or dress, the trend can be easily worn with plain jeans or matching print items.
Bringing back the sixties
The sixties are back! Which means your inner Twiggy can be born. The mini dresses, the black and white spots or strips combo, this is the ultimate chic look - this trend promises to be a hit on the high street, being incorporated by Topshop & the online giant ASOS. So grab your round sunglasses, prepare your beehive and put on your checked coats!
Florescent Bold colours
Wanting to make an impression this season and stand out for the crowd? Well, this may be the trend for you! Like the Graphic Content trend, this is not for the faint hearted minimalist. Bright pinks, yellows and greens are hot this season and can be easily worn with a bright pair of jeans, a dress or shoes to give you that ‘wow’ factor.
The Bomber Jacket
One of the key fashion items this season – the bomber jacket has had a fashion makeover, being fashioned in silk, leather and satin & defined with a mixture of prints and patterns. The jacket can be worn simply with jeans or to give an edge to your look with a leather skirt.
And finally, we’re brought back to the nineties! The light washed jeans, the slogan jumpers and PVC hats give the trend a fun edge. The grudge look can be worn simply as a slogan jumper and shorts or, as Balmain styled, use a jumpsuit!
