While you’re still praying for spring’s swift arrival (and the trends it brings!), designers already have their eyes on what you’ll be wearing for fall. And while we love spring and summer for their warmer temps, nothing beats fall trends. Fall is the “January of fashion” (remember from the September Issue?), and the 2013 fall trends are already starting to trickle in. It’s like back-to-school shopping – but SO much better.
As New York Fashion Week wraps up, we’ve been following the shows closely for emerging fall 2013 trends — and there are some huge stand-out trends that have us ready to fast-forward 2013. Most notably, there’s a huge upgrade on mixed media (it’s all about fur and leather, plus everything but the kitchen sink), and we can’t get over the insanely awesome ’90s hip-hop and grunge mash-up. Meanwhile, major brands like Tory Burch and Tommy Hilfiger are churning out textured skirts, and as expected, there are some trippy prints from Marc by Marc Jacobs and Diane von Furstenburg. Oh, and did we mention the beloved fall 2012 color oxblood is getting a facelift? Click through the slideshow below to see what you’ll be stocking your closet with come fall.
