BTAC’s 2013 Trend Forecast

January 5, 2013

The new year may have just begun, but the fashion industry is, as always, a step ahead.  The fashion forecasters are out in full force. With the spring/summer shows already over, we’re looking at the top trends for early this year. Here are our picks for what’s going to be hot in 2013.

Short suits

The business staple gets a casual makeover with shorts and sassy tops underneath. This one here from Michael Kors combines this trend with another popular look for this season: black and white stripes.

Bomber jackets

This badass jacket gets a girly twist with unexpected colors and feminine detailing like the flowers here for Loewe, the Spanish leathered goods brand.

Bermuda shorts

The reign of the short-short is over! Longer shorts that fall at mid-thigh are cute and classy, like this white pleated pair shown here in the Chloe show.

Funky sunglasses

 Express your silly side with fun sunglasses like these from Diane Von Furstenberg.

60s Inspired

Candy shop-sweet colors and retro silhouettes are in.  Combined with bows and a ladylike bag screams the femininity Kate Spade is so well known for.

Other trends we’re looking forward to include pencil skirts, sheer cutouts, neon prints and Japanese-inspired looks. We again wish you a Happy New Year, and the best of luck working these up-and-coming fashion statements!
