How To Stay Ahead In The Fashion Stakes
Fashionistas will know that in order to stay up-to-date with the latest trends, the hippest designers and the hottest styles, tuning into the latest runway shows is a must! Regardless of whether you are lucky enough to attend the shows themselves, or are viewing them on the big screen, learning what's hot and what's not is imperative when it comes to restyling your new season wardrobe.
You should begin this task by investing in a few ensembles using this year’s on trend hues. If you're not quite brave enough to alter your entire wardrobe, use accessories to inject a little colour. Statement bags, scarves and shoes will instantly update pre-season ensembles, whilst colourful jewellery will add a much-needed splash of interest to an otherwise simple outfit.
If you are only able to invest in one new outfit, make sure it's something that makes a statement and of course, something that is on trend this season. If payday hasn't quite reached you, opt for a loud accessory instead. Arm candy can make or break an outfit and an oversized bag in a bright shade can update a look instantly.
Vivid orange and royal blue are two shades to look out for in 2013 and both look great with a tan, making them great investment hues for those planning a quick getaway. Glam ladies beachwear is big on the catwalks this season and this year, bright appears to be better. Opt for 50s style high-waisted bikinis and one-piece, cut-out swimsuits.
Chandelier style earrings and studded shoes are a few of the other trends to buy into this season - both will allow you to update a number of pre-season styles without going to the expense of an entirely new outfit!
When donning the earrings, wear your hair high - this will allow you to show them off to their full potential. Studded boots look great when worn with wet-look legging and skinny jeans in a hot hue such as red, orange or blue.
