Marie Claire Sets Spring Trends 2013

Marie Claire UK
March 2013

The March edition of Marie Claire UK has everything we need to know about Spring's upcoming trends. Their chicly studio~shot fashion spread features stunning model Nico O, styled by Jayne Pickering, in the ideal guide to the most modish looks and key styles for the season. 

Ruffles. Gucci introduces us to oversized ruffles and key-hole cut-out necklines in this vivid floral swirl silk print dress from their enticing SS13 collection. Hot pink ankle strap sandals and a bejewelled neckpiece accompany this look.


See-Through & Checks. Nico models what is an increasing popular trend already on the red carpet. Louis Vuitton imposes a series of see-through checks and block prints for Spring. She wears a white sequined bodysuit with checked silk cut-out skirt and leather pumps.


Sicilian Holiday. We have Dolce & Gabbana to thank for taking us on a journey through Italy with their expressive prints. Nico is beautiful in a black lace and silk organza print dress with puff sleeves. Chunky colourful raffia earrings add to the charm of this trend.


Luxe Sport. Of all 80 looks from Chanel's Spring 2013 collection, this was the last one I expected to see in editorial. But I am glad it was selected as it shows the sports luxe side of the famously feminine French label. Nico wears a white cotton blend zip-up quilted jacket...sprinkled with a few glass pearls...it is Chanel after all.


Power Prints. There are few to rival Peter Pilotto when it comes to creating innovative and clashing geometric prints. For this editorial, he serves up viscose skinny striped patterned pants with a frilled peplum cut-out top. Matching heels are by Nicholas Kirkwood.


70's Glamour. Nico displays retro elegance in one of my favourite looks from the Saint Laurent Spring runway. Channeling the glamour of the 70's, she dons a black silk crepe gown with chiffon tiered ruffle shoulders and a wide leather belt. Edgy leather gloves and a fedora style this sophisticated look.

Metallics. This season, metallics are seeped in vibrant colour as seen on the catwalk of Dior. Nico is striking in a lustrous striped orange, green and lilac silk strapless dress with trailing hemline. The metal-strap heels are the real scene-stealer here.

White Out. Another imperative trend for Spring is all white from head to heel - the perfect lightness to subdue those hotter days. Nico is dressed in a silk shirt and white leather trousers with intricate cut-work, which is from Roberto Cavalli's SS13 collection.

Twisted. It was Christopher Kane who turned coiled twirls of plastic mainstream, using an unusual fabric and braiding it into something wearable. Nico wears a pastel pink plastic silk dress with complex textured twists of fabric. 


Geisha. The Oriental trend is one we've seen across many Spring 2013 runways, with a strong Japanese influence at Prada. This white silk satin look features delicate origami folds and floral emblems. I somehow don't see the shoes becoming a chain store convention.

Embellishment. Bringing a dose of glitziness to Spring, we see ornate embellishments find its way onto trousers and tops & not just evening gowns. Lanvin showcased this exquisite black cotton and silk organza ensemble with structured shoulder and metallic choker. 

Which of these Spring trends are you most looking forward to?

I really think 70s Glamour could be an interesting trend and I love the hot pink and orange colour combination of the Gucci dress which makes me immediately think of summer holidays in the sun! I'm just looking forward to wearing fewer layers!

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

Oooooh, I LOVE all of these, so dramatic!! I think my fave trends are D&G's folksy prints and the metallics you've showcased with Dior. Not soooo sure about the cutouts, but then I am a bit of a wimpy. And I am all over the embellishments vibe right now, both in fashion and in our home - love it!!

Jacy said...

Oh my word....so stunning! That first dress is my new obsession!

Katie Q. said...

I think the see-through checks at Louis Vitton are visually really interesting, just maybe something that might be hard to translate to real life. (I do like how it looks though!) I think the super embellished bodysuit has to be hands down my favorite, it almost looks like armor, it's so substantial looking! It's really different and refreshing from all of the sequin pants that were so popular a while back. The seventies drama look is one of my favorites as well, I love seventies inspired lines and looks and this one has such a dark, almost Gothic romance look to it.

I love the black and white with the power prints. Those are my favorites!

Bee-zee said...

Guess what, travelling again, I can't complain, but sometimes it's tiring... but now back to the web again - my on and off love :)
I was so "lost in space" that I was going to complain "where are my favorite Friday Frills every Friday?" Then I noticed it's Thursday... one more smile :)
You know me... I loved ruffles and Sicilian holidays! But in fact I never stopped wearing that style, so I will be very happy when it finally comes in some weeks!
I also knew I would find the best covering of the Oscars here! Congratulations!
