In spring summer 2013, we see that the casual dressing trend is going much further. Brands that always focus on classic elegance like Ferragamo and Valentino are dumping dress shoes for trainers. Alexander Wang and Versace are putting strong emphasis on sports theme. Prada and Burberry are steering the sandal-suits combination in this season. Even loungewear hits the runway with silky fabrics, vertical stripes and loose cut epitomizing the style.
Shorts are going shorter this season to a mid-thigh length. Denim is making a revival after gone from fashion scene for a while. For print, we see an interesting tendency for using diamond-like shapes to form pattern.
On the colour palette, it won’t be surprised that navy becomes mainstream after a military season in FW2012. Beige and white are also designer’s favourite choice. All-white outfit is already a key trend in womenswear of SS2012, and it is not likely to go away in the coming seasons.
