The only thing constant about fashion is the fact that it keeps changing with the seasons, and you’ve got to keep up with that if you want to be fashionable. After all, you can’t exactly really wear boot-cut jeans, when skinny jeans are the trend.
Here are the latest trends, as forecasted by the fashionistas, about to take the world by storm.
For the ladies
Ladies, think back. The 70’s style denims with the slight flare leg is back! Make sure you have a pair of light-colored 70’s inspired denims to team with a cute top/blouse.
Summers are hot, and to help you be cool and still look hot – lace dresses and kaftans are back in vogue. If you’re apprehensive about wearing a see-through lace dress, team it up with a camisole or slip of a complimentary color. Kaftans with their loose flowy material makes for perfect choice in summer and spring. For kaftans, you can wear a unitard underneath.
The spring seems to be the season of bright and vibrant colors. Look pretty as a flower, with some skinny jeans in bright hues of red, blue or green. Or team a simple dress or jeans-tee outfit with a skinny leather color belt or some color platform shoes. Colors are back, and you can’t really rock the fashion world with some dull colors.
Feeling your outfit is too plain? Weave a vibrantly printed scarf around your neck to give yourself that extra edge. [It’ll keep your neck warm in the winter times too]
Cute is back in vogue too. Look every bit the cute, innocent girl with a pinafore dress or a cute leather skirt. Dress up in some flowery sun dresses or a brush-stroke print skirt. Fashion for 2013 is going beyond the usual, incorporating in brush-stroke prints and bold metallic dresses – 2013 is all about making a statement.
Cutes-y headbands and earrings in shapes of butterflies, kites, footwear or guitars are all part of the charm.
For the men
Hot from the runways of Milan and Paris – blue is definitely taking over black. Instead of the standard black shirt+ jeans combo, it’s time you add in some color – and blue spells royalty [in some shades] and calmness in some.
No more bright colors – let the womenfolk handle that. You can dazzle in some pastel shades of pink and blue and impress your date. Add a bomber jacket or motorcycle jacket for that ‘cool’ look. It’s a good time to invest in some camouflage wear too. Women have a weakness for men in uniform and your camouflage pants can do the trick.
Boat shoes or colored wingtips – you have to make the right choice. While you can never go wrong with a pair of boat shoes or some sneakers – colored wingtips have the potential of ruining your image. Make sure you don’t match your wingtips – instead build around it in different shades.
While we know that clothes aren’t everything – it certainly helps a person boost their image. You can’t really make friends or impress your boss with last year’s fashion – you have to dress to impress. This year’s fashion is getting bigger and bolder.
