Okay so now the its officially autumn, I thought I’d take a look at the trends that captured the SS13 catwalks to make us long for a warmer time..

I’ll start with the trend that I most enjoy; the short paired with a jacket to make the perfect casual look. 


 At Paul & Joe it was a monochromatic affair with the perfect day to evening outfit. The mis-matched prints and the monochrome work really well for taking this look from the office to the cocktail bar. Paul Smith reminded us of those oh-so stylish travellers that manage to look uber chic whilst still remaining comfortable and casual. Finally, Victoria Beckham’s 60s inspired miniskirt and matching jacket are perfect for summer and a great excuse to get the pins out! As someone who loves clothing which is both stylish and practical, the short suit will be creeping its way into my wardrobe come next summer. 

Secondly, lets take a look at the BRIGHTS that graced our catwalks this season… 




Burberry Prorsum offered us a gorgeous mix of natural colours from green lace to the ensemble picture which is reminiscent of a summer berry mix which is as delicious as it is stylish! Reem Acra had a similar idea with this gorgeous red dress which I can almost guarantee will be witnessed on some red carpet event next awards season (my bet is on Olivia Wilde at the Met Ball/Oscars). And we can’t discuss colour without drawing on Marc Jacobs latest effort at Louis Vuitton which consisted of a sunshine yellow catwalk and numerous looks in the same colour. Yellow is a hard look to pull off, but I’m going to make it my mission to get something bright yellow in my closet next year!

And quite possibly the biggest trend from the SS13 shows (of which almost every designer had something that would fit into this category) is WHITE. 



The most obvious trend this year was the whites that were on show. In as many ways as we can describe that the fashion industry impacts almost every other industry in some way, we can now say that the launderette business will be booming after next summer when EVERY remotely stylish woman in the world will be needing her whites doing, and doing well. The cleanliness of the trend is the best part. In the messy world that we live in, feeling clean and fresh can always make us feel so much better and so by combining that with the glamour and the drama that is a necessary part of fashion, this trend and the creations that came alongside will be a huge influence on the wardrobes of so many women come next may.
