We all know the fashion world is a rapidly evolving industry. So, in order to get the latest trends, we really need to stay on top of what’s happening on the runways. The catwalks are bursting with fabulous styles hot for summer this season, so here is what you should be aiming for on your next shopping trip.
Short Suits. If you’re on a budget and need to limit yourself to only a few new items this season, make sure one of them is the short suit. When worn with wedges from Very this style looks extremely flattering and is an ideal summer set-up. Such attire is easy-to-wear, office-appropriate and incredibly versatile.

Sport Style. At last, a dress we can wear with flats and retro trainers – the sporty dress. This style is universally flattering and looks great on almost any body shape. The slight bodice creates the illusion of a slimmer waist, whilst the flirty A-line skirt allows fashionistas to show off their tanned summer pins. Wear with wedged trainers for the ultimate in sports luxe.
Flats and Low Heels. 90’s style is back with pointy-toed heels. Yet, in 2013, they’ve been treated to a cool contemporary twist--think everything from cylindrical heels to cutesy ankle straps. The comfortable lower heel means these can be worn all day long, making them a very versatile addition to your wardrobe.
Wild Life. In the past, garments embellished with animal prints and patterns were thought of as outlandish, over-the-top and statement fashion pieces. Today, however, they’re the new neutral. Choose to wear these prints head-to-toe or otherwise, add a subtler hint of pattern with a statement scarf, bag or shoes.
Statement Sunglasses. If you want to make the road your runway, invest in a pair of statement shades. Think loud, retro specs and shapes that are a little different from the norm. If you feel your outfit is slightly subdued, a pair of oversized sunglasses will instantly add a supermodel-like edge.
Sail Away. Once again, the nautical trend is back for 2013 and is the perfect attire for a European city break. Pair with paisley shorts and sandals for a laidback, on-trend style or go for a full-body nautical look for more impact. (photo by fashiondivadesign.com)
