Just as most of us are pulling out our warm Fall/Winter 2012 fashions, the fashion capitals of the world – New York City, London, Milan, Paris – are celebrating the visions of both established and emerging designers. From uber designers like Diane Von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Celine, and Calvin Klein to this year’s hot and new designers like Naeem Kahn, Anthony Vaccarello, and Moon Young Hee, the Spring 2013 Collections are exciting and fresh.
There were some trendy accessories on the runways, like the Google Glasses (aka Google Goggles) on the Diane Von Furstenberg runway and peep-toe, knee-high boots at Ferragamo. And, there was plenty of evidence that BIG is still in: big jewelry, including the statement necklace and decorated wrists; shoes and boots with chunky high heels; colorful scarves and handbags (updated as the clutch). Thankfully, most of the accessories we have in our closets will complement the new Spring styles.
5 trends seen throughout the Spring Collections include:
• Stripes of all stripe
• Lots of white with lots of black
• Bright colors
• Dresses over pants
• Embellishments on dresses, pants, tops
In addition to matching 2012 accessories with 2013 fashions, it’s safe and stylish to don anything that’s asymmetrical, with bold graphics, or midriff-baring.
