The best thing about attending Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is getting a sneak peek at what we’ll all be wearing next summer. So to help get you excited about warm weather fashion, we’ve curated our top 10 trends for spring summer 2013/2014 here in Australia.
1. Cobalt Blue
This electric shade of blue was on everything from hot summer dresses to bold monochrome suits.
2. All White
This is one of our favourite summer looks, so we were very excited to see crisp whites dominating the runway.
3. The ‘Jacket Cape’
An on the shoulder, off the arms way of wearing your jacket that’s great for those who oppose winter fashion – it’s like wearing a jacket without the commitment.
4. Side Parts
The middle part was nowhere to be seen this year with side parts working their way into everything from straight and sleek down styles, to low ponytails.
5. Summer Suits
Glamorous pantsuits in colourful prints and solid shades stormed down the runway with plunging necklines and bare midriffs.
Our signature shade featured heavily throughout the collections in soft pastels and tropical brights – we couldn’t get enough.
Neoprene is no longer just for wetsuits – designers showed off their skills creating ball gowns, swimwear and structured skirts out of the material.
8. Mirrored Sunglasses
The mirrored sunglass trend is going to be huge this summer with mirrored lenses in every colour of the rainbow.
9. Nineties Cool
With grungy flannos tied low around the waist, to sleek minimalistic looks reminiscent of the Kate Moss/Calvin Klein era, the nineties was in full swing.
10. Pajama Dressing
Shirts and pants got all matchy-matchy, with flowing silk used to create luxe pajama-like outfits made to see more than just the bedroom.
