We may well still be in the midst of winter, but when it comes to fashion, it’s never too early to start thinking about new season trends. And what’s more, you don’t have to wait until spring to start wearing them. Ensure you’re one step ahead of the curve by working our favourite SS13 trends today.
A perennial fashion favourite, monochrome made a welcome return to the SS13 runways. At Helmut Lang and Jason Wu models dressed in black sleek cigarette trousers matched with white tailored top. Alexander Wang saw crisp white shirts contrasted with black slit leather shorts, while statement stripes prevailed at Marc Jacobs.
Work monochrome into your off-duty portfolio now by teaming Alexander Wang’s chunky jumper with a pair of black cigarette trousers. Then, as daylight fades, slip into Peter Pilotto’s Christina designer dress for a patterned punch after dark.
Get a heads-up on SS13’s hottest hue with statement shoes and bags from Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang or go bold and embrace the look in Alexander McQueen’s silk blend Intarsia dress.
If you’re going to invest in one item, make it a pair of trousers. From slouchy silk trousers at Lanvin to patterned pants at Diane von Furstenberg, the message was clear – trousers are the key silhouette of the season.
Go patterned or pale in the day with Diane von Furstenberg and McQueen, then slip into Lanvin’s wide-leg silk trousers when cocktail hour calls.
