WHAT PRINTS, CUTS AND SHAPES TO LOOK FOR IN 2013
One of the most enticing aspects about the new year is the prospect of pushing reset, replay and renew on your styling outlook. We’re not saying you should do away with what you already own and what you’re currently wearing; rather, we’re giving you a heads-up on what’s on tap for 2013. While the Fall ’13 collections have yet to show themselves (February, er, Fashion Month is but a month and some weeks away!), we’ve got more than enough Spring and Pre-Fall fodder to make some very informed observations about the silhouettes, prints, hemlines, and inspiration that will (and should) be on your radar in the year ahead. Listen, sex appeal — whether it be subtle or overt — reigns supreme, taking shape in the most revealing dress cut-outs and the sweetest sheer overlays. Denim is having a moment (you’ll see what we mean inside), designers are culling serious inspiration from the Far East, stripes aren’t just for the classicist, and leather is — more than ever — a versatile luxury.
