Spring Summer 2013: Trend Alert!!

By Tinacolada @StyleScribbles
The key trends to shine out this ready-to-wear show were:
LACE- going to be big next year; if you want, experiment with crochet and net and lace along with tulle and other light weight fabrics and give it your own twist. Try to work with accent pieces or accessories with this trend (think Jason Wu, Christopher Kane and Alexander Wang for a modern twist on a classic such as this one)
Big Floral and Paisley Prints-Statement PrinTs are the big trend and the bigger the better (think Etro, Anna Sui, Thakoon, Mara Hoffman, Prada)
Structured Pieces- read: Corsets!! cinched waists, empire and princess seams, enhanced shoulder and hips, clean cuts and obi belts. (references are everywhere on the runway, check out cropped jackets, peplums, waist belts, leather mixed with softer fabrics, etc. Some designers to check out include but not limited to: Vera Wang, Zac Posen, Calvin Klein...)
European, namely, French references, along with influences from mid- nineteenth century and the eighties- VintAge is the new ModeRn this summer! (think: Marc Jacobs, Thakoon and more..) Check out the suspenders inspired seams and panels from the BCBG show or the scarfs and sweaters tied around the waist from the Marc Jacobs show for retro impressions!
Acid tones of Yellow and Green leading on to GOLD- a very promising color as seen on the RTW2013 runways: everywhere from DKNY to Vera Wang, Betsey Johnson, Jonathan Saunders, Burberry and many more.
Sportswear Influences
Stripes and Checks, combined at times with paisley and floral motifs
Shades of the Sun- especially ORANGE and its hues are big for SS2013, it is a fresh new summer color to appear and can be a shocking electric bright or in pastel peachy tones, as per your style preferences. (think Rachel Zoe, Betsey Johnson, Peter Som, Paul Smith, Burberry,
