Most designers and the well known labels have once again taken inspiration from the classic designs of the 1960s. The era where “Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis” set the trend for classic fashion. In regards to colour, the spring of 2013 will usher in lots of black and solid crisp white fashions, and tons of black and white combinations. Be ready to see lots of soft shades of white, neutrals, as well as all the predictable pastels in the shops this spring. Again this year the colour red will hold its own, paired with navy and white, to give fashions that “all American look”. As for the last four years, stripes remain and were all over the spring collections. One more big trend - lace. Lace is being added to fashions in the most peculiar places. It is being used as never before. It is popping up not only in evening wear and lingerie, but ready to wear - not to mention it’s covering shoes, and handbags, you name it...

Black and white fashions remain the big winner this season, most fashion designers have added articles of clothing in tones of black and white,. Many designers adding just a splash of colour to the black and white combination, red being one of the popular additions, as well as cheery yellow. Let’s face it - you can’t go wrong with the traditional classic black and white outfit, and designers know this little fact, and continue to cash in on it.

So, what’s one of the most popular item of clothing for spring/summer 2013? Think ladylike dresses, and A-line skirts.

However, this season fashion designers have also given us all kind of fun fashions. Fashions that will offer wonderful vivid prints, stripes, and geometric prints - not to mention some great new takes on animal prints. The main theme this spring is somewhat tailored, classic, with a touch of bold, and edgy added into the mix.

Stripes - Stripes seem to hold a place in fashion year after year. This spring be ready to see stripes being worn from head to toe, in the most unlikely match ups.

Trousers - the new waist line falls just below the waist, and is very flattering on most figure types. In regard to trouser style, anything goes, from the very skinny to the very flared leg.
