Key Winter Trends for 2013
Knits are huge this year, they are no longer something that you’ll find in your grandma’s closet. You’ll find sequins, studs and different textures that you’ll love. From polkadots, animal prints and on-trend graphics your knit is sure to make a statement this winter.
We’ve been seeing embellishments around for a while now however they are stronger and structured in winter styles and you’ll notice they’re everywhere. Wear your embellished pieces with a simple outfit, it sure will make you stand out. And if you’re wondering if the embellished look is too young don’t as they are plenty of age appropriate styles.
Metallics are huge this winter. If you think bold and shiny allover metallic pieces just aren’t you, try metallic mixes to still keep up with the trend. Dress them down or add black for a great night time glam look.
There are plenty of graphics around this Winter and it can be a little overwhelming if you normally stick to the basic whites or black and only splash occasional colour. So start small and introduce small pieces of Graphics to your outfit, such as a scarf. And s you feel more comfortable with the trend go for larger pieces such as a dress.
