I sure don’t have a crystal ball but the people over at Fashion Snoops do! That’s why I attended their forecast session at the Magic tradeshow in Las Vegas recently. The fashion industry always has to be one or two seasons ahead. The four trend forecasts are: Mod World, Spice Trail, Glam Grunge, and Provincial Picnic.
I realize we are about to start Spring 2013 but why not get a jump start and shop the Spring/Summer 2014 trends ahead of time? I perused one of my favorite stores, Zara, and below are my picks. The runway looks (left) and comparable Zara looks (right).
Tips on how to wear trends for your body type
Boy: Use patterns, stripes and details like ruffles and sequin to create the illusion of curves.
Pears: Bring attention to your top! Stay away from striped pants and other loud patterns on the bottom.
Curvy: Bring attention to your waist using belts or color blocking and favor garments that are diagonally cut.
