Fashion Trend Updates for 2013

A new year not only means a new start, but also possibly a whole new wardrobe revamp. But that requires quite a bit of money which most of us can't spare. So why not just start with a few distinctive pieces to kick start another chic and stylish year?

1) Cropped Outerwear

So last year was all about showing off your mid riffs in cropped tops but don't be in a hurry to get rid of those as they will still be as popular in 2013. However, something new to consider and add on to your collection will be cropped outerwear. Think jackets, sweaters, blazers etc.


THOUGH IT'S A BIT TOO OUTRAGEOUS FOR EVERYDAY WEAR, YOU GET THE IDEA HOW YOU CAN TRY TO ADD ON SOMETHING LESS FANICIFUL TO YOUR OUTFIT.

2) Metallics

Shine on with metallics! This is another trend that has been revived on the runway season after season, so you can be sure it's worth an important place in your wardrobe now. Besides the usual gold and silver, we can see some other more unique shades like metallic pink or blue. And the best part is that it's not only just limited to your outfits but it works just as well on your accessories and even your nails!

3) Monochrome Prints

Last year was a burst of bright colours and floral prints but this year has taken a more somber tone with monochrome prints.
