Style Statement: A Spring Clean
After a few false starts, it seems that the new Spring/Summer season is finally upon us and with it a whole host of new and exciting trends to look forward to. Whether you are after super-feminine pieces with vintage accents or love to add a bit of an edge to your outfits, we have put together a Magnifeco guide to all the SS13 investment pieces you could possibly need.
From ladylike to androgynous and all the varying shades in between, the SS13 catwalks had a little something for everyone. As always, florals were a popular choice, with designers from D&G to Marni embracing a love of nature. Nancy Dee has combined delicate oriental-inspired botanical prints with soft pastels perfectly this season with this Elizabeth wrap dress.
1990′s grunge also made an appearance in a big way, with tie dye, ombre prints and denim the perfect way to make a statement. Edun has worked these two trends beautifully with these cargo pants. Crafted from pure silk for a featherlight feel, they feature an etched poppy print on a khaki base for a global and more edgy effect.
Staying with prints, 1960′s style inspired by art and culture of that time has been a real favourite amongst designers. Whether the print is checkered, striped, spotted or chevron- monochrome is key, bold and the name of the game. Why not combine this striking trend with volume and structure in the shape of this Roxy Top from People Tree?
Shapes went statement this season, with voluminous and tailored pieces favoured by the likes of David Koma and Stella McCartney. Ideal for light layering and creating a look of your very own, this semi-sheer top from Asquith London is cut in a box shape that is perfect for combining with bold colours. Add to it these striking yet smart shorts from Komodo in an electric green hue for a playful combination.
If you want to make a statement but aren’t quite sure how to pull it off, ease yourself in gently with this gorgeous top from Edun. Cut in a relaxed yet structure shape with bold shoulders and asymmetric lines for a subtle 1980s look, it is finished with matching sequined embroidery that is ideal for accessorising. Team with this gorgeous Envelope Clutch from Lost Property of London for a clash of crisp white, colour blocking and acid yellow.
