As a new year begins the search for new fashion trends quickly emerges.


There are a lot of new looks, materials, and something for everyone as they move through each season of the New Year. But if you want to be stylish you have to know what is hot and what is not. You need to discover what is trending in 2013 from head to toe, and where you might be able to find these styles.

According to Glamour Fashion slouchy, cool-girl Bermuda shorts were seen on many of the major New York runways this year and are very hot for the upcoming spring and summer seasons. You can find high end retailers who sell these shorts. But you can also find women’s plaid slouchy Bermuda shorts for around $33 or even denim for under $30.

Color is also very important in fashion trends and this year it looks like black and white color combinations are in. Go Jane has a number of club dresses that incorporate this color trend. They have the cross printed black and white cut-out dress, the printed cut-out knot dress, white bodied with black trim zip-up body con dress, an asymmetrical draped dress, and a black and white tribal printed cut-out dress.

For something a little more upscale and less casual peekaboo pieces are daring, but in demand as well. Consumers could find a glitter print tube dress with a semi-sheer lace inset at the bust for under $30. Or how about a mesh inset embroidered mini dress with mesh insets on the sides, chest, and back for under $50.

Bold stripes will be big for both men and women’s fashions in the next year. Michael Kors has a Mix-Stripe Jersey dress for just under $1,000. Or for men you can find the Elie Tahari heather grey Yuma strip stretch ‘larry’ tee for $49-88.

Leather is also a trend that men and women both will see a lot in 2013. Cole Haan offers men an earth brown washed leather motorcycle jacket for $334 on sale. Or for women an Elie Tahari black leather ‘andreas’ asymmetrical zip leather jacket for $240 on sale.

Bright colors will be a trend for men this year. Ralph Lauren doesn’t disappoint with his fashions for men or women in this trending category. You can find everything from his signature Polos in bright colors to his custom fit Chambray or bright colored plaid shirts for men. For women, you can find cropped leather 888 bright pink jeans; lime colored silk Crepe de Chine jumpsuit, or Blue Label stretch paisley skinny pants.


Accessories are equally as important when looking at fashion trends and in 2013 “statement sunglasses” will be the thing. Prada ‘Baroque’, Michael Kors aviators, and Tory Burch oversized glasses will definitely be among this newer fashion trend.

All of these trends and so much more will be the next big thing in 2013. Make sure to shop smart and you can find all of these and other hot trends for any sized budget.
