Trends For Spring, To Wear In Winter (Part 1)
Spring / Summer 13 trends have long hit the catwalk, and we are already looking forward to light evenings and hanging out in the warm weather. The only problem is many of us will have a low post-holiday budget and with winter very much in action, it is hard to think about what we may be wearing in a few months’ time. The additional annoyance is availability; as transitional and resort products available in stores now may not be around when the seasons fall.
There’s no need to delay with these up and coming trends. Why not start buying key pieces that can be worn now, and re-positioned into different outfits throughout the rest of the year? Within this series of posts there will be guides to accessible spring / summer fashion that can be re-mixed into your winter wardrobe. So you can make a statement now with clothing that will still be relevant later on.
