As London Fashion Week is well and truly along the way and the trends for SS13 are being showcased, I thought it would be good to share what my favourite trends for the current season are and what I will be taking my inspiration from.

Through these images and some extended research of my own, I narrowed my favourite trends of this season down to the following:
Purple/Oxblood – very deep reds and dark purples are most definitely the most prominent colours of this season. With the harsh, cold weather that we should be expecting, wrapping up in darker colours may make us feel that bit warmer, and with it not being as dark as black, these colours help to keep our wardrobes a tad more chic.
Leather – a daring take on modern fashion as leather is used to toughen up feminine pieces. Whether it is a piece on its own or as an added feature to a garment, it automatically transforms any look. It is a good way to add dimension to an outfit, whether dressed up or casual.
Oversized – this trend can work its way into any other trend adding something a little bit different. Using the contrast between something baggy and something fitted adds an edge to an outfit.
Military – a modern take on a vintage style. A way for women to adopt a masculine manner with sharp and sophisticated looks. With dark greens, khakis, greys and blacks, androgynous silhouettes are created. A lot of different types of women can take on this trend, making it perfect for this season as we begin to layer up for colder weather conditions.
