2013’s hottest fashion trends

Comment on this story
  1. Everyone on the front row at fashion week was armed with an iPad or mini laptop, so make sure you protect yours in style.
  2. Yellow was THE colour on all the catwalks and one that Hollywood stars have firmly established as a favourite.
  3. Red is the new black. Its time to swop that LBD for an LRD. Tone it down with a neutral pair of peep toes.
  4. All aboard the Orient express for 2013. Prada, Emilio Pucci and John Galliano did it and so can you. Update any outfit with obi belts and vivid printed skirts.
  5. Its all about the monochrome, whether its stripes, checkerboards or squares, all stylishly demonstrated by Karl Lagerfeld. Chessboard chic has never been so fashionable.
  6. Furs, hairy, shaggy, beads, threads, lace ... texture makes a come-back on everything from pretty prom dresses to sky-high mini skirts.
  7. Ladies, prepare to bare. Chanel showcased a beautiful array of cropped jackets and short shorts and Zara have been quick to follow suit, so you can get leggy for less.
  8. Tailoring is key and the perfectly lined pencil skirt will add some serious class to any outfit. Ditch the mini skirt for the office and channel Oscar de la Renta in a tight, knee-length style.
