Winter 2013 Fashion Trends: A Focus on the Bright Young Things
There’s nothing like sparkly statements, wintery hues and rich patterns to put one in the mood for this chilly time of year. Tis the season to be opulent and gives you a reason to be sentimental. These gorgeous and chic looks will help inspire your winter wardrobe.
A classic, sophisticated and instant pick me up, white has a place in your wardrobe every winter. Nothing is more appealing or perfect for the season than a white hot suit, as seen at Valentino, Celine and Stella McCartney.
Accentuated with an array of gleaming buttons or bold with a striking collar, the key is to feel fun and unique. For a softer look, try a cream silk that will leave you feeling confident and feminine. Contrast white hues with straight sleek hair or eyes accentuated in dark sultry hues.
Fashion this season is all about sparkle and shine! Jazz up an outfit with glittery tights or jewel smothered tops. Dolce and Gabbana’s winter collection is full of embroidered dresses and shiny gold numbers for a low key touch. These high end watches and bangles can be an inspiration and are perfect for making any look modern.
Wear jewelry in your hair. Taking less than five minutes, pin a cluster of jewels in an undone bun or tuck an emerald flower behind your ear. Little diamond bobby pins are effortless and pretty to tame flyaways. For a look that evokes fantasy, drape a charmed necklace along your hairline or add an ornate tiara.
Few things are more dramatic than the contrast of black and white. This winter it won’t be uncommon to see girls stealing their boyfriends’ suits with this mafia inspired trend. Dress up a black silk bodysuit or black tie pieces with heels and a shiny clutch. The menswear influence has hit 2013-2014 runways this winter and were seen at Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and Vivien Westwood.
With sequined blazers, silver satin numbers and cloque dresses with foil pleats this trend truly reflects the eclectic spirit of the season. Silver is dressy in an understated way and goes great with this season’s popular hues, such as purple fuschia, bright yellow, tomato red, chocolate, soft pink and cobalt blue. Dress up your outfits with tinsel-toned accents or a frosting of silver spangles. Show off this trend in a cute metallic mini or pair a silver lame skirt with opaque black stockings.
Leather is a staple that never goes out of style. It has such universal appeal and looks great on all ages. You don’t have to be edgy or young to wear it and it has become a standard day to night wear. At Chanel, leather coated legs were seen as a type of stocking tucked into boots while smooth leather was like a second skin at Celine. Soft leather works over a lightweight dress and adds spice to any outfit. There are so many different versions available so it’s easy to find a color, cut and type of leather that works for you.
The best thing about fashion is you are free to be creative and there are no rules. As long as you have fun and feel good, go for it!
