Hi guys, this is a collaborative guest post with Diana Baulmi from becomegorgeous. The feature focuses on Top Trends for Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 .
Okay, so we're still in a summery state of mind... However, when it comes to our style, we must admit that we have already started our hunt for the perfect cold-weather season goodies. So, once we've spotted them, we've decided to share them with you as well. So, are you guys ready to take a peek at the hottest trends for autumn/winter 2012-2013?
This season, it's time to take your fashion approach to a whole new level and think all-things-opulent! Yes, baroque seems to be the number one trend that could be seen on numerous shows such as Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Aquilano.Rimondi! Elegant and luxurious, baroque statement-making embellishments add interest and a slightly intimidating touch to your ensembles!
We're so happy to announce you that the military trend is back again ( Altuzarra, Tommy Hilfiger, Moschino, Victoria Beckham, Burberry Prorsum). Therefore, get ready to be promoted to a higher sartorial rank and choose glam trench coats and jackets, but also skirts and dresses!
Have you ever been to China? What about Japan? This season, bring the Far East into your wardrobe through prints, flowers and colors that remind us of stunning geishas and brave samurais. Zac Posen, Jason Wu, Proenza Schouler are some of the designers who gave their own modern interpretation to the traditional Asian theme.
What's that? Oh, that's a sharp and uber-classy masculine-inspired look! Indeed, the already renowned androgynous trend is still going strong this fall being reinterpreted by designers like Stella McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent, and Prabal Gurung. It's all about smart blazers, pants and straight coats! So cool and super duper easy to rock!
Knits and leather
We cannot imagine a perfect winter without cozy knits. Comfy yet chic, chunky or super-soft, there are many the reasons for which knits are considered as wardrobe staples during chilly days. For fall 2012, we've spotted knitted pieces at Nina Ricci, Alexander Wang, and Mary Katrantzou. Besides knits, another wearable trend is leather (Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy).
Red and blue
Winter dressing shouldn't be all about boring grays and blacks. So, this season step out of your comfort zone and have fun with your styling choosing eye-catching brights. And by this we mean notice-me-now red (Sophie Theallet, Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg, Zac Posen) and blue (Ohne Titel, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Stella McCartney).
