Enhance your style in the new year by embracing these fashion forward trends that will keep your wardrobe fresh, chic and modern.
Sheer is a trend that inspires all of the fashion go getters. Fashion editors Jade Frampton of Elle and Marissa Rubin of People Stylewatch both list this as a favorite trend for the new year. The simple sexiness of showing a bit of skin can be embraced in blouses, dresses and skirts.
Metallics, also one of Elle editor Jade Frampton’s picks for 2013, are on the up and up. A pair of gold cocktail shorts or trousers adds a bit of sparkle to a modern night on the town look.
Paillettes are another great way to make an understated look stand out. They add a classic shine, particularly when used on an LBD or black cardigan.
Fashion editor at Interview Magazine, Jessica Mycock feels a wide leg trouser is a must-have for every woman’s wardrobe. Ideal for cocktail and the office, changing up the shape of your pant provides a much needed sense of variety.
The cape is the rising star of outerwear. Loved by celebrities and editors alike, a good cape can be used as a cover up for a night on the town or as a statement piece for casual dressing during winter months.
