So if you’re wondering what’s on trend this coming season, you may be pleasantly surprised by the mix of familiar looks and wildcard picks by the most renowned designers. The spring/summer collections of these designers may be the only chance you get to combine crisp whites with psychedelic camouflage...
So here they are, the key trends to try;
It’s not just for brides any-more. One of the most clever trends that designers could ever bring back is the all-white craze, which helps you stay cool during the sizzling summer months. But this trend is more than just functional -- it’s a way to look stunning and crisp, no matter what the occasion. Acne previewed their bright white collection a while back, complete with fun twists like a white cowboy hat and knee-high lace-up platform sandals.
Colour-blocked designer handbags:
This trend first popped up two years ago, but it seems that designers aren't quite ready to let it go -- at least when it comes to handbags -- and neither are we! Colour-blocked bags are a great way for the fashionably timid to play with geometrical shapes without having to commit to an entire outfit. Try Paula Cademartori’s Silver Satin Tatiana bag for an accessory that strikes the perfect colour-blocking balance.
Ditch your pinstripes or the referee look for a bigger, bolder pattern. You can wear them in any direction, and it’s more fun if you forego the classic black and white combination. This season, colours like reds and neon greens will be everywhere, so why not try one of these with an ivory or grey offset?
We know, prints are more of a classic than a trend, but the way designers are doing them in 2013 is what makes them unique. From abstract camouflage to hallucinogenic florals, prints this spring and summer are all about innovation of pattern and strategic use of eye-popping colour. One of our favourites is Mother of Pearl’s Millennium Bloom Pallus Dress.
For a trip back in time that’s not so extensive as yearning for 60s fashion, look no further than your yesteryears. Most of us were in our teens or early 20s in the decade of grunge rock, the revival of woodstock, and the heyday of MTV. But fun pieces like gold chains and midriff-baring tops, which can become a more age-appropriate look when paired with another 90’s look -- high-waisted trousers -- will instantly make you feel like a kid again.
My Favourite is the 60's of course, some things never change for me;-) I am also keen to experiment with more whites this year too!
