2013 Spring/Summer Fashion & Colour Trends

At last spring is almost, less than a week away, (touch wood) here.  Well, only technically.  1st of September is officially the start of Spring Season in South Africa, but in Cape Town, according to me, it only really starts closer to mid-October.

Cape Town Fashion Week was about 2 weeks ago, therefore I’ve decided to do some research on all things ‘hot’ this upcoming spring/summer season by looking at local and international catwalks for inspiration and ‘guidance’.

This is what I’ve concluded:

  • You are a dedicated follower of fashion.
  • You are not afraid to stand out in a crowd.
  • You wear the latest cutting edge trends and fads, and you usually know what it will be before it becomes main stream.
  • You are adventurous with your wardrobe, never boring or stuck in a style rut.
  • Your look changes with every season as new trends come and go.
  • Most of your clothes is only worn for one season.
  • Your style is always changing.
  • You love shopping, fashion TV, fashion magazines, and you always keep an eye on what celebrities are wearing and the latest looks on the catwalks.
  • You shop anywhere that stocks the latest trends and are happy to mix low-end chain store pieces with high-end couture pieses.

Examples are Paris Hilton, Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker.
