As seasons change and winter rolls in, so does that time of year that every fashionista adores: new trends! This means a new wardrobe and a fresh new look.
So what’s hot for 2013? Here’s a guide to make sure you have all the essentials to help you keep up with the fashion world this season.
Leather, leather, and more leather! As seen on the catwalk during fashion week, this sultry material will be a must-have for Winter 2013. From leather gloves to belts and shirts, Yves St Laurent’s catwalk was abounding with leather accents.
Hot tip: For the perfect look, indulge in a bold pair of leather leggings with leather gloves. Top this outfit off with a faux-fur vest over a white blouse et voila! You’ve just created your own fashion-forward ensemble!
Whether you’re a daring creature or the definition of innocence, this next look is perfect for all. Metallic accents were famously showcased on the Givenchy and Chanel catwalks. Chanel’s noted signature piece was a dainty pair of metallic tights, while Givenchy’s catwalk was awash with shiny beaded embroidery and fringes.
Hot tip: Head out and purchase a pair of metallic tights and throw on a knitted sweater dress. For a subtle yet modish look, tie this look together with a long gold pendant necklace and matching bracelet.
For the finishing touch, every outfit needs to be tied together with the right accessories and shoes. This season’s must-have shoes are thick-heeled pumps and booties, and of course the timeless thigh-high boots. As fashion is renowned for recycling, you can take your thick belts and necklaces out of hiding and put them to use again.
Hot tip: To keep warm, throw on a thick knitted scarf, with a matching woolen beanie, and long gloves.
Now that you’re up to date with the latest trends, give your wardrobe the makeover it’s been yearning for!
