Spring 2013 Trend Report

New York Fashion Week has come and gone, like a whirlwind! I spent the past couple days looking at all the collections and figuring out top trends for next season. I always find it so interesting that even with all these designers creating independently, we are able to find trends that are common in their collections!

Also, as a budget shopper, I love the timing of NYFW. You get to know about next season's trends, just in time for the end-of-season sales! So,  take advantage of the fab discounts and stock up for next season!

That said, here are the top trends, emerging from the NYFW runways, for Spring/Summer 2013 -

Black & White
Elizabeth and James, Naeem Khan, Bibhu Mohapatra

Diane von Furstenberg, Cushnie et Ochs, Michael Kors
Diane von Furstenberg, Chado Ralph Rucci, DKNY
