What better opportunity to go on a shopping spree than a change in seasons? Lucky for us, 2013 has a ton of trends to choose from. The overall vibe for Summer 2013 is to take your own personal style and expand upon it. Feeling a little lost? Here are a few key trends to get your shopping spree off on the right foot:
The race is on for most stylish partygoer, and the current frontrunners have streamlined their outfits with stark black and white, donning the color combo on everything from formal gowns to fierce skinnies. For a chic and simple look, stick to minimal makeup in shades of nude, as seen on the Balenciaga runway in March. Or be daring by adding pops of bright color for a va-va-voom look that’s sure to grab attention. Our favorite? A rich, matte red lip, a swipe of mascara and matching fire-engine nails. The high-octane look is the perfect way to earn your fashion (racing) stripes.
Now that the winter blahs are behind us, we’re wishing that our homes could reflect the freshness beyond our windows. “By the end of winter, I’m craving color, freshness and things that make me feel renewed,” says Chicago-based interior designer Anthony Michael.
Spring has (almost) sprung, which means it’s time to whip wardrobes into warm weather shape. We’ve got a simple solution: Move over those bulky winter sweaters and make room for pieces from eDrop-Off’s exclusive Fashion Vault collection. Starting April 12, eDrop-Off — the Chicago-based luxury online consignment destination — will be featured in an eBay ReLove Fashion Vault auction, a sale of one-of-a-kind pieces from high end designers.
Who needs a knight in shining armor when you can suit up in your own glimmering metallic gown? Take a lesson from these heavy-metal ladies, who are rocking vibrant silvers, golds, bronzes and even radiant colors with metallic finishes. The high-sheen fabrics grab attention, but it’s the accessories that drive the look home — power up with lustrous silver or gold jewels, belts and shoes.
