It’s that time of year again.
Beginning on February 7, Fashion Week seems like it has just passed by. And now that we are overwhelmed by the abundance of beautiful clothes from couture and ready-to-wear lines, it’s time to start planning our wardrobes for fall.
Designers everywhere from Alexander McQueen to Marc Jacobs to Louis Vuitton had phenomenal shows. And somehow, in all of the chaos of eyelash curlers, glitter and frantic models, the designers managed to present fashion-lovers with a wide variety of trends.
In fall 2013, keep a lookout for harem pants, chic silhouettes, flannel jumpsuits, loud colors and prints, leather and an abundance of embellishments and embroidery.
Mostly every trend will trickle down from previous trends, so items that were bought from previous seasons can be used in the fall, too.
On the runway, magazine editors and celebrities took extensive notes, and are probably already planning how they want the designers’ looks to translate into their own taste.
Though spring collections have just been displayed in area stores, fashionistas have to be one step ahead of everybody else.
That’s what makes fashion week so unique. Everyone watches the same shows, but they created different looks based on their own taste.
Spring is quite early to begin planning outfits for the fall, but there are so many trends that it’s necessary to find out which you adore and which items you wouldn’t dare own.
