Three Styles To Watch Out For In 2013

This season, there are three major styles taking the runways by storm: tomboy, hipster and grown-up. Here are all the ensembles you need to perfect them.

Gone are the days of tomboys looking a little on the messy side--this season’s tomboy style ensembles are bang on trend! By day, wear wool trousers with a cotton shirt and skinny necktie. Finish the look with metallic brogues, acetate glasses and a striped knit. Both hair styling and make-up should be kept to a minimum.

For an evening soirée, wear polyester trousers in a hot hue with a silk sleeveless shirt. Add accessories such as a diamond necklace, beaded bracelets and a statement leather clutch in a neon shade. To make the outfit pop, match with bold tiger print stilettos.

For an off-duty style, switch the heels for suede loafers, the shirt for a cotton cardigan and the jewellery for a leather watch, a striped canvas belt and a cotton baseball hat.


For daytime events, wear a jacquard skirt with a cute cotton shirt and silver flats. Finish the look with a leather clutch, a diamante watch and acetate glasses.

For an evening affair, swap the skirt for a lace and velvet dress and team with patent leather flats. Alternatively, wear tailored black shorts with an on-trend white blazer. Create interest with a pony-hair clutch and a crystal and metal ring.

For a weekend break, swap the heels for distressed leather boots and the blazer for a leather biker jacket.

Grown-up Glamour

Instead of the average suit, a wide variety of designers are showcasing a newer and fresher style. Womens playsuits are an alternative and an easy-to-wear ensemble that requires little effort. Dress the outfit up with statement shoes, jewellery and a belt or keep it simple with flats and minimal accessories.

For something a little dressier, try teaming a silk and wool mix skirt with a patterned sheer shirt and leather kitten heels. Dress the outfit up with pearl bracelets, cocktail earrings and a sequined clutch. For a more relaxed look, switch the skirt for a pair of jeans.
