Trends to Watch: Summer Fashion Forecast

By May 10, 2013Fashion News

Summer is finally here and to make life a little bit more relaxed for you we prepared a fashion forecast.


This season bold colors are some of the top trends: red, orange, bright yellow, blue and emerald-green. American Apparel got the right color palette (and prints) we want for upcoming Summer days and nights.

Animal/jungle prints

We moved on from the military trend straight into the jungle and animal kingdom. Mix patterns and prints wildly in your outfit or add one or two accessories. Kenzo (zebra cap) and You Must Create (shorts) are more than happy to guide us right.

All white

White can’t go wrong this summer. No need for the most expensive labels, keep it clean and simple. ADYN shows us how white and white becomes the new black.

Tie dye

During all the fashion weeks we’ve seen this year, a common trend has become quite clear: tie-dyed menswear. It is nothing new, but it has definitely made a strong comeback in the fashion world. You could go for a tie-dyed suit or perhaps it is enough to add a pair of shoes or socks to your “All white look”. Topman gives us some good-looking options.

They are everywhere this spring & summer: from Topman, Zara and H&M on the high-street to hipster brands including Hentsch Man, McQ Alexander McQueen and Raf Simons to mention a few. Yes we have seen the florals before, in all possible and impossible colors. But this season we find a more classic and “natural” look to the floral prints.


The monochrome trend is bringing us back to black and white. Overall, the 2013 monochrome trend has no pattern combination rules so the possibilities are endless. It can include everything from spots, checks and stripes. Try pairing contrasting patterns or pairing the same prints in different sizes.


Many designers are showing wearable designs, simple pairing of a white top and black trouser. This is an easy look to work, classic and perfect for anyone who is on a tight budget.
