As in my recent blog post this week ‘If fashion were a time machine’, I talked about how fashion jumps ahead a few seasons to promote the pre-seasonal trends – and let me assure you, they’re fabulous. 2012 was a great year for fashion but 2013 holds a massive range of trends. Designers graced the catwalks with their new seasonal designs from Oriental –dimensional. The seasons of 2013 are sure to blow your socks off! Here’s a summary of what fashion has in store for you this new year:

Checkmate – Add confidence to your style with the checks this season:

Oriental Prints – The Oriental prints are making a comeback from 1909. Fashion is travelling to the East with these Oriental prints! With the likes of Prada, Dior, Dolce & Gabanna and so many more sporting the trend, Oriental is sure to capture your heart with its designs. The Oriental prints are based on naturalism, ranging from flowers, dragonflies, birds and more. There’s no denying that the Japanese and Chinese are the masters of the Orientals. Their elaborate detail and sense of ‘calm’ make a sure contrast to some of 2013’s other trends. So keep your cool this year.
