Here is what we are hearing from the fashion runways for 2013…
There will be a very big “back to basics” theme, which includes black and white colors and lots of stripes. The black and white is personally a favorite of ours here at NYZ MODA! Why you ask?… well you can literally accessorize it any way you want!! And you know we LOVE to accessorize!!
Now, when I noticed the stripes on the runways, it reminded me of a late afternoon in the Hamptons, lounging on my private yacht enjoying the sun…well at least that’s what I think it would be like… In real everyday life, the stripes whether black and white (which there seems to be MANY of) or nautical themed is a trend that can carry over for many seasons and years which is a plus for your wardrobe! And, it just reminds me of the days of Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn and their oh so classy and timeless look! (Great Style Icons)
There were also some floral as well as prints that well honestly are a necessity sometimes…I mean who doesn’t want to feel cute and carefree in your favorite floral print dress or shirt or pant suit (yup we just said it…pant suit…which honestly looks very beachy resort style and so cute with a nice pair of wedges).
Another trend…LEATHER!! …. while leather is not a favorite. The runways were booming with leather looks…from your basic leather pants to dresses to shirts and some very daring coats. And while I personally can’t do leather, I think it is a look that (if done the right way) can be fantastic! It makes a statement on its own and is a powerhouse!
The overall feeling I got from the runways and just kind of searching around is that you can create an absolutely fabulous look without overdoing it with sequins, sequins and more sequins. Now, that doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing sequins ever again, it just means that we can be more creative in the way we showcase all that bling. Sparkles will always be a girl’s best friend.. I mean who really doesn’t like to feel like they’re walking the red carpet sometimes…but creating a fabulous look with the right sparkle this year is about making it as easy as possible whether it’s collar embellishments or funky patterns mixed in with some beading.
The big color of the year which I’m sure you have heard or will now be hearing about…….(drumroll please) ….is EMERALD GREEN!!! which please give me a moment while I shout with joy… YES!!! WOOHOOO!! I LOVE IT!! ….okay, so back to what I was saying, emerald green is literally one of my FAVORITE colors! I think why I find it so appealing is because well you can wear it no matter if you are a red head, blonde or brunette. It is in my opinion a universal color that needed to be recognized..so thank you fashion world!!
Now to our favorite part……. Jewelry!!!!
The jewelry and accessories we see in 2013 will continue to include all the bright and fun colors that are just so eye catching and ELECTRIC! but also some black and white, which like the apparel, can come in many different forms, stripes, and patterns. I personally love white jewelry in the summers!..it just makes me feel sooo..…TAN! haha!
Also, a newer and more updated trend for jewelry will be “all that metal fun” which includes all of our amazing metals and some metallic..from gold to silver to rose gold and more! What we absolutely LOVE about this is that you can mix your other accessories from past seasons…like your neon bracelets with metal or metallic pieces like a cuff or bracelet to create a fun and unique piece that has been updated for the season. Some of the my favs have been MK’s rose gold watches which are beautiful! and some fabulous metal cuffs! So easy to wear!
What is so awesome about accessorizing this year is that you can create so many interesting and unique pieces JUST FOR YOU!! Just in the way you wear them together or what you pair them with! It makes every outfit special and different.
…….. it’s baaaaackkkk……….or in this case……..still here! ARM CANDY or ARM LOVE or STACKED or whatever people like to call it. Basically mixing all types of bracelets, bangles, cuffs, a watch etc to create your own statement. It is still here and going strong. It will continue to be big within the next year whether it’s mixing huge chunky color pieces or mixing smaller bracelets and bangles…which to put it simply…WE LOVE!!! I know we have already said this many times but being able to have some sort of arm style is just so UNIQUE and makes every person’s personal style noticeable. AND I love this! I love to see what clever thing someone will think of that I would never have put together. It creates and emphasizes every person’s creativity and style whether it’s simple, bold, fun, trendy, or just whatever!
There’s so much to work with this year! No doubt we’ll all stay trendy in 2013! See you guys tonight at 8 PM CST! Didn’t you hear? It’s auction timeee!!
