Welcome to Spring/Summer 2013.
If you are a ‘clear’ colour type you are going to be spoilt for choice and I have a feeling your wardrobe will double in size! Why? – Well Spring/Summer is all about bright, clear, neon shades; bold shades with the upmost clarity, all essential for a ‘clear’ colour type. Not only are you given the eye-popping shades but you have monochrome in abundance; stripes of all widths and sizes and prints in bold black and white, chequerboard squares. It is essential for ‘clear’ colour types to wear their colours in contrast so what more can I say, Spring/Summer 2013 is ‘your time’!
Do not dismay if you are of a ‘soft’ or’ light’ colour type for the catwalks have thought about you too. Pastels also hold their own, appearing alongside the bright and the bold. To emphasize the light and the airy, sheer fabrics flit through many designs giving the idea /illusion that summer is just around the corner..(illusion or should I say delusion..I’m just trying to remember my last summer….)
Dolce and Gabbana have really homed in on the idea of summer heat and, along with their breathtaking stripes, a rich coral persists, reminding me of Spanish summer heat. This is helped along by their vast range of what I call ‘holiday bags’, little wicker and raffia baskets that can be found down near the beach.
There are little gems for every style personality this season. The dramatic and creatives can indulge in the daring squares and geometric boldness of Louis Vuitton, the romantics (at least the modern romantics) may fall in love with Chloe and Dior.
The Classics amongst you, I’m sure, will be mesmerized by Chanel(remember to push your boundaries a little)
and all the natural style ladies may gain inspiration from Jil Sander, stylish but so easy to wear.
The ‘city chic’ style types?? Well you know what to do I’m sure! You will pick the best from all there is to offer, you adore all that is current, sophisticated and stylish. So much to choose from. Watch out for my next article on Spring/Summer in the high street.
