With New York, London, and Milan Fashion Weeks coming to a close, I thought I’d give a little inside scoop on the trends seen in London. From the homeland of famous designers like Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney, I noticed metallics, 3-D florals, shades of yellow and orange, sporty/athletic looks, and sheer trends (among others). Some of the best looks I’ve found I will definitely encourage you to emulate, and I’ve found a few places that have these trends in stores!
The articles that I’ve read emphasize the need to wear sequins in daylight. I totally agree with this! I’ve done projects in class relating to sartorial looks and fashion-conscious ladies have worn patterns and sequins together. I absolutely love this trend. I just recently dusted off my sequin flats to wear with my colored denim and such.
This trend was huge for Spring/Summer 2013. As a devout fan of anything floral, I would wear any sort of 3-D prints. Erdem sampled 3-D prints with neon embroidery and appliqué. House of Holland featured plum sequin flowers scattered down a matching silk shirt and trousers. I noticed a girl wearing royal blue shorts, booties, and a white top from American Apparel this weekend. I was absolutely thrilled to notice this trend in a more affordable setting.
Orange and Yellow
Orange and yellow was also a huge trend on the runways of London. Topshop Unique showcased a daffodil yellow trouser suit and Antipodium featured a vibrant orange dress. Even though I’m not a huge fan of each color, I do like them mixed together. I found a website called the Trend Spotter with several photos of this trend. How would you wear these colors?
