9 Trends to Look out for in 2013 ...


The most popular trends to look out for in 2013 range from simple and classic looks to those that are a little bit more outrageous.

There’s plenty to look forward to in the New Year as we leave all things peplum and oxblood behind in 2012.

It’s definitely a case of out with the old and in with the new.

If you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe in the New Year, check out these top trends to look out for.

1. Stripes


One of the top trends to look out for in 2013 is something that is a staple in many wardrobes already.

This year will be the year of the stripe.

Breton stripes, vertical stripes, coloured stripes, zigzag stripes – anything goes when it comes to this pattern.

2. Emerald Green

Emerald Green

Emerald green is officially the colour of 2013.

This beautiful hue is the perfect statement colour for both day and night.

It’s a nice change from the light and bright colours that have dominated past seasons.

Add emerald green pops of colour to your outfit with accessories like jewelry and bags or go bold with an emerald green dress or top.

3. Multipurpose Clothes

Multipurpose Clothes

These days it seems like we’re always on the go.

Multiple outfit changes throughout the day seem really impractical.

So, this year will be about clothes for all occasions.

Things like all day street wear that will take you from day to night will be your wardrobe saviours.

Stock up on things like chic blazers, tailored pants, and dresses that will see you through a range of occasions.

4. Glow in the Dark

Glow in the Dark

Alexander Wang’s glow in the dark Spring/Summer 2013 collection sure got us talking.

Is this the way forward for 2013?

I’m guessing so, since Wang seems to be one of the key trendsetters year in and year out.

Whether this trend is practical or not is another matter entirely!
