Fall 2013 Trend Report

Over the past few weeks we’ve been keeping a close eye on the various fashion weeks that have taken place internationally. From New York to Paris, and everywhere in between, we’ve been compiling what we believe to be next seasons hottest trends. Better to start thinking earlier rather than later, right? After doing so, we’ve have compiled a list of eight of our favourite trends that we’ve seen on the runway for Fall 2013. Take a look below to see what our Fall 2013 fashion trends are.

Alexander Wang, Chanel, DKNY, Gucci

Next season we can expect to see a whole lot of “Boxy Outerwear”. Perfectly Ideal for the colder months as they leave room for being practical and layering underneath. A very 60’s vintage inspired trend.

Oscar de La Renta, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Reed Krakoff

Move over black! Gray has become the new neutral for Fall 2013! Using different shades and fabrics of gray and compiling the perfect outfit head to toe, looking chic this fall will be no issue.

Ann Demeulemeester, Calvin Klein, Hermes

This fall you can easily make a huge statement by wearing a leather top. This is a great alternative to bring a bit of a harder edge into your wardrobe without going over the top.

Oscar de La Renta, Ralph Lauren, The Row, Victoria Beckham

The “Luxe Tux” is a great way to wear a suit while still looking feminine and sexy. With a variety of different ways to style a nice jacket and pant, this trend leaves room for interpretation allowing you to find what works best for you. From a vintage look to a modern look, this is perfect for Fall 2013.

Mulberry, Saint Laurent, Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria Beckham

"Modern Plaid" is a great update to the regular (sometimes farmer) looking plaid that we’re used to seeing. From smaller scales to larger ones, this trend will definitely help you stand out and looking fashionable.

Christian Dior, Moschino, Vera Wang

We’ve seen the “Peplum” trend for the past couple seasons, and we are definitely not complaining. This trend is fun, flirty, and feminine. It has been revamped in various ways for Fall 2013 and we couldn’t be more excited.

Emporio Armani, J. Mendel, Ralph Lauren, Tadashi Shoji

The “Velvet Dress” is going to be the perfect Holiday Look this season. We can already feel is. This trend brings the perfect vintage feel and flair that we love in fashion. From long to short, we cannot wait to be rocking this come fall.

Gareth Pugh, Vanessa Bruno, Victor & Rolf

A great, simple trend for Fall 2013 is wearing White on top and black on bottom. This trend leaves a tremendous amount of work for every fashionista to bring their own spin to it and make it work. This will definitely be our “go to”!

We have to say, hearing athletic chic was back, we cringed a bit reminiscing of girls en masse wearing sweatpants and hoodies with bra strap headbands. HOWEVER - we must emphasize the word chic in this equation. 
Even if you never wanted to be Sporty Spice back in the day, you can still get your athletic chic on with a killer pullover - such as our Handsome City Hall hoodie or with some 3.1 Philip Lim drawstring pants. Don’t forget the kicks! The pink Pumas are the ones we mentioned earlier this week and of course, what look is complete without a “totes Wang” handbag?

Trend of the Week: Collared Shirts

While the collared shirt is more of a classic than anything, how it always seems to adapt itself into the current trends’ aesthetic makes this key piece a fashion marvel. Having gone to a school with a uniform, the trend then was to roll up the sleeves and have the top button(s) undone - making the shirt look as casual as possible.

Britney Spears was probably the inspiration that caused us to go to such, as my mother would call “sloppy,” lengths. Anyone with buttoned-up cuffs or collar was considered, well, a ‘nerd’ or social pariah. Paired with a uniform skirt to the knee, or GASP past the knee, the person in question was either a tad odd or hadn’t yet learned the ropes.

Now, fast forward to the workplace, the collared shirt is a key way to show the world that you’re a) professional and b) know what you’re talking about.

The current iteration of the collared shirt is buttoned-up the whole way (maybe those so-called “nerds” knew what they were doing). Collars are definitely a big focus for designers and in most of the Fall 2021 RTW shows there was nary a collarbone in sight.

We can even look forward to the collared shirt trend come fall.

Cocoons on the Runway

We hope the winter weather isn’t getting you down. How about an easy, minimalistic way to bring your stylish spirits back up? Take a look at the “Cocoon” style. This season designers chose a unique silhouette to showcase many of their designs. Whether it was done in a big way with outerwear, or in a small way with sleeve detailing, the “Cocoon” silhouette was predominant on the runway this season. Check out how designers such as Alexander Wang, Jil Sander, Prada, Stella McCartney and others brought this style to life on the runway.
