The New Year is here and now is the time to see what fresh beginnings the year has in store for us ahead of time.
Here are the fashion predictions – the cuts, the prints and shapes that will be followed most.
Ultra textured and Embellished Outfits
Floral textures are expected to hit the racks sooner or later. This will rule the roost in Spring 2013. From midi skirts to blazers, bright floral textures will come alive in the creations of that season. Pants will also be part of the race with monotone cutouts adorning them. Designers have also created embellished dresses in sheer and satin fabrics. Pastel shades will be the colors to watch out.
Last year’s low hemlines have inspired designers to incorporate this in the outerwear this year. Bomber jackets have got a makeover with Roland Mouret turning their color to red and shortening them with shiny zippers. Two piece dresses in the colors of spring have been created with free sized waist coats. Geometric prints, air brushed prints and sleek vinyl jackets are some of the textures used in this section.
Missing from the fashion scene in the recent past, the tomboy shorts make a comeback this year. They are expected to replace the minis and bring modest hemlines to the fore. Geometric prints, stripes and plain denims will be the textures of choice. Three piece outfits will be more popular with matching outerwear and contrasting tops. For all those who look for effortless fashion, this is the trend to follow.
The last year was all about fabric. The coming year will be more about textures. Ruffles will be a prominent part of the fashion world in 2013. From shouldered dresses to maxi dresses, ruffle-infused designs will sizzle the ramp. Some of the designers have taken inspiration from traditional Flamenco dresses and incorporated it in their fashion creations.
Some of the designers decided to take the double-breast outfit idea to a different level. They experimented with the design in all varieties of tops, maxis and dresses. The results have been stunning and very unique. Originally a part of blazers this concept has been extended to pantsuits and skirt pieces. The idea is to give the formal outfits a bit of a styling and make them more powerful.
