Accessories still have an original vibe and the golden lips symbol we saw on some handbags for resort 2013 is still emphasized. Accessories are the one place where the brand gets playful and the creative shapes are one clear proof of the ingenuity that transcends the otherwise serious and classy allure the new looks carry.

Jeans Trends 2013

If, like us, you stayed away from navel-grazing cuts in favour of styles that rested on your hips for fear of looking like you were wearing mum-jeans, it's time to rethink your sartorial strategy.

 Ida's longer lines equal a leaner silhouette that tucks you in at all the right places. It's slimming and sleek, even with a print! With black and silver swirls, Kaleidoscope is baroque styling at its best, while Strawberry Dreamtime's pale pink and white mix is sure to be a sell-out come spring.

Fashion Trends 2013

Sheen Queen

 As seen at: Jonathan Saunders, Christian Dior, Mary Katrantzou, Viktor & Rolf, Burberry Prorsum, Diane von Furstenberg

 How to wear: The trick to iridescent fabrics is to ground them with a simple neutral hue by day and a bold, solid colour by night.

Pencils At The Ready

 As seen at: Erdem, Roland Mouret, Christopher Kane, Burberry Prorsum

 How to wear: Ladylike and demure or sexy and sophisticated, the pencil skirt is fashion gold. This season it takes centre stage in clashing colourways and on-trend patterns.

Zac Posen Dresses 2013

Dresses, whether we're talking about the cocktail ones or spectacular evening gowns, have the power to turn every single look in the right direction and become the instant spotlight. Sexiness blends with classiness for an outstanding effect. Femininity radiates through each and every single one of the designs that marks the new season creations.

Even leather gets beautifully interpreted to match the spirit of the new collection and makes the most of the new season options. Gorgeous mermaid dresses steal the spotlight and Maria Callas proved the perfect muse for refined alternatives that cannot go unnoticed.

Playing with volume is the key concept that becomes skillfully reflected throughout the new season alternatives and which gets the absolutely desirable impact in the spotlight. With the gowns ensuring the wow factor by themselves, there's little need for accessories to make the final impact.

Juicy Couture Dresses 2013

uicy Couture is continuing its venture into new terrain with its pre-fall 2013 designs and the result is hot, hot, hot! The brand's decision to rethink and reinvent its style has worked as apparently the designs provide a higher dose of variety appropriate for a wider age group.

Long gone are the days when the iconic velour tracksuit dominated the Juicy Couture offerings as nowadays the brand concentrates on bringing chic garments that vary from comfy jeans and shorts to flirty dresses, fabulous blazers and stylish tees. However, the outfit that helped push the brand to fame, the tracksuit, is also present although it takes on a more subtle presence that gets lost in the sizzling up-to-date silhouettes that dominate the collection.

 Juicy Couture's creative director, LeAnn Nealz, decided to take a fun and flirty, almost summery approach to style with its pre-fall 2013 collection, which seems a bit of a gamble since most designers chose to incorporate autumnal pigments in their designs. However, the bright color palette of the collection, combined with down to earth elements and patterns, gives Juicy Couture that certain 'je ne sais quoi' that conquers from first glimpse.

Roberto Cavalli 2013 Collection

We can always count on Roberto Cavalli to take us through another style dimension and makes us forget the winter chills and instantly create a strong desire to rock some of the hottest ensembles shown regardless of the season.

If the Roberto Cavalli resort 2013 collection managed to give us an idea of the current trends endorsed, the new campaign highlights the true style potential of the creations shown. The added sexy vibe is more obvious than ever and Anne Vyalitsyna and Karolina Kurkova prove the perfect choices for bringing out the label's spirit in its entirety. It wouldn't feel like Cavalli if there wasn't a wide array of intricate prints to choose from and the label sure knows how to play on its strengths and keep its fans pleased yet yearning for more at the same time.

 Aside from the iconic animal prints that the label has become so well known for, the label now tackles a more abstract perspective that falls right in line with the fabulous new style direction most major style influencers are headed to.

Oscar de la Renta Dresses 2013

Femininity is an expected allure when talking about Oscar de la Renta and the pre-fall 2013 collection certainly didn't fall short as far as expectations are concerned. With balance and sophistication both expressed differently throughout the collection, with both uber elegant alternatives and less formal style options, the label gives a well rounded perspective of the defining style elements that will mark the upcoming season.

Retro vibes become instantly distinguishable and '70s style once again shows its potential to dazzle through the multifaceted creative approach. Still, the options aren't as romantic and as girly as one might expect. For the most part, things are fairly balanced and subtle and proportions are perfectly defined in order to draw attention precisely to the desired features.

The abstract touch that began defining the Oscar de la Renta spring 2013 collection print-wise will still be popular in the final days of the warm seasons of the next year. Dresses and skirts are must haves in the retailers book and the options are as diverse as they can get.

Max Mara Spring 2013 Collection

A timelessly elegant allure is certainly a desirable attribute that the label explores through a simple modern perspective where minimalism is valued and its principles are put to good use. Proportions vary generously and contrast is easily achieved as oversized pieces are combined with more body conscious ones for maximum style impact.

The color palette is surprisingly consistent and the focus towards prints and noticeable distinctive textural details is kept to a minimum. Still, we manage to see that the label still focuses on animal prints for a luxurious and sophisticated vibe that will outlive the seasonal trends. The relaxed fit and the occasional masculine touches with little eye-popping details might seem a little simplistic on their own, yet proper accessozing changes the perspective significantly.

 Though the accessories stay in the timeless style zone, the options provide a sense of completion and a fab touch.

Their high quality, practical touches and incredible appeal will enable you to sport the pieces for a multitude of occasions.
