Trends to watch out for: Spring 2013
The Helmut Newton Effect, or as we like call it “The Leelo look”. How can anyone forget Leeloo’s infamous straps in the film “The Fifth Element”. BCBG and Hervé Léger dominated the runway with this trend. You can save the world, and look fabulous while doing it! I guess the future really is here. We’ve been ready for this look since 1997!
Stripes are back, but they’re not the straight edges you remember. These lines are curving and going every which way, and they’re growing on us. Although abstract, it’s like wearing a piece of modern artwork. Oscar De La Renta gives stripes a classy edge on an elegant ball gown we are all ogling over.
Sheer Genius! There’s nothing wrong with showing a little skin, especially after being covered up all winter long. Look cool in sheer button ups, or mix and match with patterns. This trend is classy, and edgy at the same time. Nicole Miller gives this look a hard edge, while Cushnie et Ochs makes the perfect modern day Jackie O dress.
