Get on-trend for 2013  !

While high fashion may do well on the start of year catwalks, predicting which will be the key looks to filter down to the high street can be difficult. Surprisingly, popular looks from recent seasons include the Peplum, which exploded onto the high street in 2011 and has not lost any momentum as we passed through 2012. In terms of shoes, creepers and the more elegant creeper style platforms have been massive on the streets as fashion continues to reclaim the sixties via the nineties.

So what’s going to be big this year?

Let’s find out what the key predictions are for 2013:

Paisley might be the only print to be seen in for 2013. Try a paisley-print cotton sundress for when the weather warms up, or a slick shirt teamed with mannish trousers to work two trends at once.

Don’t panic: if paisley isn’t your thing, you can choose between geometric or floral prints to stay on trend. Fashion icons should be Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton (as well as the women of Mad Men) and look out for citrus colour prints for the ultimate homage to sixties fashion.

Floor-length gowns are going to be big this year and creating an elegant silhouette is going to be key. This season’s dresses have to go all the way down to the ground. Look out for kimono-style gowns for the ultimate in opulence.

Oh my Goth! Goth continues to be influential this year but don’t let it get you down. Colours are black and white, obviously, and choose leather to maximise the 50 Shades of Grey influence.
