You would think after a lifetime of loving nautical and classic we would be growing somewhat tired. Nothing could be further from the truth! Ladies, may I present the list of 5 absolute clothing must-have pieces that will be in heavy rotation in your spring 2013 wardrobe.
Denim shirts are having a bit of a comeback. The effortless tomboy-chic choice for spring is also the most fashion-forward alternative to a cardigan or sweatshirt (see DKNY). To elevate your effortless-chic style, choose the fitted western shirt. If you are lucky enough to find a tie-dye version, you can call yourself an it-girl already.
The forever favourite biker jacket gets a cool modern redux in warm-weather leather version. Blending edgy streetwear and the on-trend attitude, this spring biker style jacket is your #1 essential for a go-anywhere look. Wear it with everything you like, for example a printed dress unless you choose a biker jacket in a statement-making print (as seen in Christopher Kane).
Classic trench coat
If there’s one item a woman can’t live without in spring, it’s a great trench coat. Invest in classic elegance with a traditional tailored trench, which counts as a sophisticated, multi-season investment. Although most of you will go safe with a creamy neutral iteration, some may go trendy with a breathless metallic trench coat we’ve seen at Burberry.
If you’ve been in the stores in the last few days, you may have noticed something: stripes and nautical themes popping up. This trend reffers to Michael Kors’ spring 2013 collection abounding with many fresh, trend-conscious nautical looks. The immaculate choice for recreating the trend is a sailor-inspired stripe top.
One of the latest fashion trends that have been taking the catwalk and the red carpet is peek-a-boo. This trend brought a lot of playfulness to the 2013 Grammy Awards (remember Katy Perry in a revealing mint Gucci column?). So why don’t you take inspiration from Alexander Wang and get your sexy back in a laser cut dress yourself?
