The opposites attract! In spring 2013 designers put the emphasis on crisp style in high contrast meaning the classic black-and-white looks.

Once again, featherweight sheer fabrics (especially in white), daring cutouts, midriff-baring separates, and Angelina-inspired thigh-high slits are all the rage in spring and summer! The beauty of this trend lies in the elegance – sexy peekaboo designs are tasteful, feature the high level of modesty and show just a hint of skin. Lustworthy.
