The Fashion Capitals: What they’re wearing in Spring/Summer 2013
With a new season on the horizon, we can only expect great things for the Spring/Summer 2013 fashion scene. From the finest fashion capitals of London to New York to Paris comes impeccable taste, so what’s on the radar come March? Read on for a quick guide to some major trends of the season and find out what those celebrated designers are doing.
As part of the best-of-British fashion clique, Stella McCartney has truly made a name for herself across the globe, especially in her beloved hometown amid the British capital. This spring and summer, expect to see some extremely fashionable swimwear dominating the high street, as inspired by McCartney’s love of bold prints and cute designs. Polka dots will be perfect for turning heads on a hot summer holiday, while floral bikinis in pastel colours will create the ultimate girly-girl beach look. One-pieces will be bang-on-trend too, so look out for extravagant designs in dark colours with beautifully wrapped bodices and plunging necklines to show off those curves.
The fashion hub of the USA will be raving about ethereal chic this spring, as influential fashion elites such as Donna Karan pave the way for light and floaty dresses in ocean blues and mint greens. This look is perfect for a stroll across Central Park on a warm summer’s day or a cool evening out with friends. Furthering this sophisticated ‘sea goddess’ look will be the dominance of the embellishment craze: think pearls, lace, mesh, silky collars as well as flowing peplum trimmings, and you’ve got it! In terms of colour, there’ll be a lot of creams, champagnes, greens and blues so make sure that you keep an eye out if you have a keen eye for Newyorkian fashion!
Embrace effortless Parisian style this spring with a liberating loose-fit look. Follow the likes of Dior and go for dynamic full skirts in chiffon or metallic satin, paired with a smart masculine blazer or waistcoat to add an androgynous edge. Make sure to steer away from body con: next season it’s all about flair in France amongst a mix of midi, maxi and mini lengths. Dior has experimented with an array of colours, from lilac to acid green to all-black ensembles, so get creative with colour and make sure that you get it right! A black jersey dress paired with sunnies oozes Parisian glamour but don’t be afraid to go for something eclectic and exciting to mix it up a bit!
Regardless of whichever city you find yourself basking in this spring and summer, make sure to be daring with your style and remember these top trends in order to prevail as a fashionista wherever you go.
