Spring/Summer 2013 Trend & Forecasting booklet broken down by colour, mood, and silhouette. It will borrow its vintage sentiments from the Mediterranean, lending a feminine softness to career-wear that will also extend to day-wear more broadly.

A renaissance of art and culture point to the Mediterranean for exceptional creation and style ethos for spring / summer 2013.

  • The key pieces predicted to shape spring 2013:

1- Belted floral dresses

Moving away from corporate looks for the office, spring 2013 offers up the belted floral dress as a primary. Expect a feminine in shape and longer hem (think above the knee to midi length). Work-appropriate it may be, but we expect to see the ladylike belted floral dress worn for many an occasion through the season.

Belted floral dresses go well with a nice pair of earrings Big or small, clip or pierced.This look is all about whatever style and colour that you fancy, you may complete the  look with a beautiful bracelet jewellery too. Though forget about a necklace!

2-Collarless blouses

Whether high-necked or plunging, soft collarless blouses replace stiff business shirts for a sensual Mediterranean mood.

Collarless blouses go well with  24inch length necklaces, and preferably multi-stands necklaces either with gemstone or without.

3-Slash neck tees & dresses

T-shirts get a luxe makeover in delicate fabrics and slash-neck cuts.

Long necklaces work stunning with slash-neck cuts, you can go with designer jewellery chain or gemstone one.

4-Boucle Suiting

Spring 2013 Chanel with boucle jackets and suits…  skirt suits or short suits.

skirt suits or short suits go well with a  20 or 18 inches either multi-strand necklaces with mix colour of gold & silver, that goes beautifully with any kind of skin tone; or a gemstone one if you fancy more colour.

  • Key hair trends SS13

The sleek and straight hair trend  and the deep side-parting is back!

Start with clean, wet hair and a high-quality fine-toothed comb. You’ll want to part your hair closer to your ear than the top of your head to achieve that deep side-parting look. Part your hair all the way to the top of your head and simply comb straight down on either side, then proceed with styling it how you want – whether it be flowing straight, loose waves or riotous curls, just be sure to keep your deep side-part dominant.

For the hair trend of SS13,  the statement necklace  or  statement earrings plays an important role of your key accessories.You don’t have to be wearing an evening gown to make these work;  wear them any time of day or night.

  • Key beauty trends SS13

Thick dark brows, smudged eye-liner, nude lips and pale face was the beauty look at Spring 2013 shows. The SS13 beauty look is very simple yet there is an inherent strangeness and mystery to it. You can also transform it from a day to night look by simply adding a little bit more blush on your cheeks and some gloss on your lips.
