Whether we choose to consciously compute the fact or not, how we look does impact the way we feel. It may be that we dress to a theme that evokes a mood, that we choose to pull on something that incites a certain confidence within us, or that we – for no definable reason at all – simply fall in love with a particular piece of clothing or accessory. Either way, the reality is that a large part of how our style evolves each year has to do with the clothing, hair, beauty and accessory trends sweeping fashion, sweeping the runways or the magazine pages or the streets. Not because we have to follow them, but because they inspire us. Each year we analyse what’s happening in the fashion world as a way to understand where the trends are coming from, where they’re going, and – should you so choose – how you can adapt them to your own personal style, in a way that suits you.
So for 2013 what to expect? Read on after the break to discover the latest on the year’s fashions.
