Street Style: Black & White @ New York Spring 2013 Fashion Week

Yes, it’s all about black & white! We can already draw a conclusion –  this trend is certainly ready to take over: the classic black & white combination. For the Spring 2013 collections, the designers have come with less or more different approaches of this combination but one thing for sure, is that we’ll see a lot of these two colors in the wardrobe. And the street style pictures taken on the street of New York during the fashion show seem to suggest the same.

Spring 2013 Trend: STRIPES

With the first fashion week coming to an end, we can already make a blueprint of the main trends that have been announced for the next year. The first one, that caught my attention immediately, was the use of stripes. Either horizontal or vertical, mixed with other graphics and prints, present not only on the clothes, but also on the accessories, the stripes have won the first spot in many designers’ collections. Michael Kors, for example, uses the stripes as the main element of his Spring 2013 collection. (pictures via: vogue.com)
