Top Fashion Trends for 2013

The runway round-ups for spring 2013 are here, and the verdict is in. The do’s and dont’s of fashion have progressed yet again. It is time to say goodbye to your winter wardrobe, and replace the jackets with some pretty dresses.

In case you do not want to start your year with a fashion faux pas, here are the top ten most anticipated trends for 2013.

Bermuda Shorts

Bermuda shorts are no longer a fashion accessory that belongs solely to the opposite gender. This spring, the ladies can make a statement with a classy pair of tailored Bermuda shorts. Pair these shorts with a formal top or a knee-length dress. If you want a more casual look, a printed T-shirt like would do. StylinOnline and other online retailers sell printed T-shirts.

Monochrome Outfits

Black and white has always been the unbeatable color combination. Monochrome is back, and as dominant as ever. The runway for spring 2013 was brimming with black and white outfits. It is a 2013 fashion trend for both men and women, so stock up your closet with all things monochrome.

The trend is not limited to outfits only, but accessories like shoes and handbags are also enjoying the classic color combination.

Peek-a-boo Dresses

This spring, the motto is ‘dare to bare’. Peek-a-boo dresses are making an appearance on the runways. Dresses with spontaneous cut work were a rage, as seen on the Jason Wu 2013 runway.


The stripes trend is an all-time favorite among fashionistas for being so classy and uncomplicated. Give your figure a streamlined effect with some bold stripes. This is one trend that will follow you around for the entire spring/summer of 2013.

Japanese Outfits

Give your wardrobe a touch of Asia with a silk Japanese style dress. Japanese cuts, motifs and embellishment were seen on runways for Etro, Prada and Emilio Pucci. Undoubtedly, pure silk has made a comeback as the statement fabric for 2013.

Funky Sunglasses

What is summer without a pair of statement sunglasses? This spring, the eyewear is flashy, funky and colorful. Pointed frames and bold colors are predicted for the 2013 eyewear.

All Things White

White is everywhere this spring; on dresses, suits and flowy gowns. White was used as a standalone statement on the runway, without the help of any other colors. Pair a plain white dress with subtle accessories this spring.

Sheer Fabric

Sheer Chantilly, lace and chiffon is back to give your spring a fresher feel. Undoubtedly, these are the most happening fabrics this spring to give the outfits a more feminine touch.


This trend keeps coming back for good. Spring 2013 will be at its best with denim clothing and accessories. The runway was brimming with collared denim shirts, skirts and pants.


Last but never the least; ruffles are probably the biggest fashion statement this year! Seen on major fashion runways like Gucci and Chloe, ruffles are already a big hit on red carpet events. Wear oversized ruffles with a sleek silhouette and slick hair styles.
