1. Black & White Pattern
A timeless classic, so don't be afraid of buying some B&W striped or pants or ckeckered top because this trend tends to make its comeback every once in while.For those of us who can't afford Balmain or LV, go visit Zara, they even have a wannabe version of that awesome Michael Kors Blazer.
Flowers are always a classic trend for spring, but this time it presents itself with some twists: mixed with B&W, another strong trend for this season (Etro); fabricflowers skirts gloriously paired with plaid accents (Dries Van Noten); black and white tropical floral-print with red embroidery ( Isabel Marant) and floral tangerine print patterned with lilac lace (Erdem).
Another S/S classic, but for this season is more of a suit situation (loving that one from Calvin Klein Collection) rather than those boring beachy maxi-dresses. I must confess that I personally have never tried the whole white look, but this season I'm determined to give it a go. A total white look is not completed without the perfect white sandals, white handbag and a light dewy makeup. Oh and how sick is that Christopher Kane jacket, ugh!
The ruffles were a common denominator for the S/S '13 runways, we could spotted on a lot of collections like Prabal Gurng, Gucci, Balenciaga, Petter Pilotto, Chloé, Givenchy, J.W. Anderson, etc. The garments presented frills around the neckline (Givenchy), along the sleeves (Gucci), at the end of sleeves and on skirt's hem (Peter Pilotto and Balenciaga) and through the whole garment ( Prabal Gurung).
This trend is already on almost every store there is so go go go!
5. Asian Influence
The far Eastern trend came to us for this spring in the form of beautiful origami pleats, robes accentuated at the waist with wide belts simulating kimonos, dresses with sharp-edged shoulders and wide piping like samurai's battle garments and exquisite bomber jackets/kimonos with Asian military motif embroidery something only Peter Dundas could achieve.
