I’m looking forward to getting rid of all this snow so that the Spring/Summer trends of 2013 can really start to be worn. Most stores are now starting to get their preliminary drops of all the new-season wares and it’s so exciting!
Some trends can be embraced now though and that’s exactly what I’m doing with this H&M dress. Actually purchased just before Christmas (and luckily too as its now mostly sold out), this dress ticks a lot of boxes – easy to wear, stunning and versatile. You’ll probably know by now that I’m not that led by trends but it ticks this box too… Monochrome.
Monochrome is set to be huge this season with anything going from stripes, zigzags, geometry and checks, so long as its black and white. Stripes would be my favourite from the above and I love how Anna from South Molton Street Style has referred to them as Beetlejuice Stripes!
I already own a couple of items that I shall be reusing, a Zara Blazer, a couple of geometric dresses and a Theory Maxi dress, but there are some bits I have my eye on too. Take a look at my Pinterest board for my wishlist/inspiration for this trend. I’m thinking I may have to get my Mum to make me a gown similar to the Oscar de la Renta one… just because. Gorgeous.
I’m wearing my H&M dress with:
Black Opaque Tights – Wolford
Black Studded Wedge Trainers – Ash
It is very similar, as Anna said, to the Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. Very similar. Quite a good buy for under £20.
Have you embraced any of the SS13 trends yet? Which are your favourites?
