Introducing the best fashion trends you need to know for spring and summer 2013. From high contrast black and whites, to comfy sportswear separates, see all of the season’s top trends from high fashion runways.

Black and white

The opposites attract! In spring 2013 designers put the emphasis on crisp style in high contrast meaning the classic black-and-white looks. Seen at every other fashion show, the back-to-basics looks are ready to wear all year-round be it in the office or during the date night. The easiest way to recreate the trend is a monochrome bodycon dress.

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.

This season, the must have fabric of every it-girl’s wardrobe comes in minimalistic yet ladylike silhouettes, and fun-loving rich colours.
