As we gear up for Black Friday, we should make sure we get the wardrobe essentials for this season! Based off the Fall/Winter 2012-2013 runway shows, let’s take a look at some of the featured trends.
Prints: Runway shows were big on prints and patterns this season! Oriental looks were back in style with intricate embroidery bedecking dresses and jackets, and reserved florals and delicate art-inspired designs were featured by designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Jason Wu, Miu Miu and Valentino. Luxurious brocades also participated in this trend.
Leisure Suits: The prints trend continued into leisure suits where patterns popped and drew the eye. That’s what we call bold and beautiful! These suits look good as a set, but also offset monochrome and solid colors quite well.These suits often came paired with the ever popular slim fit trouser.
Peplums: Peplums made it big on the catwalk this year, mostly in darker, more mature colors. Many make for exaggerated hiplines, and are featured in suit skirts and cocktail dresses.
Oversize: Make it big! The oversize look is back. Large tops, wide coats and jackets, billowy pants all made an appearance, and capes were also a favorite of the season.
Classic Winter Materials: Favorites as ever, leather and fur are a-knockin’ at our door again! Leather goes well with the gothic trend that ran the runway shows, and make for a classic look with gloves, which also had their own presence on the runway. Velvet also made a comeback, soft, sophisticated and retro.
