The Mood Of The Week(End)

The holiday look.

Totally in holiday mood this week. This simple and fresh outfit shows exactly my feelings in these hot days in Italy: relaxed and happy.
The oversize striped shirt is been one of the most wise and guessed purchases I have made lately. Love it!

Trends – Great expectations for the warm season 2013

I spent the last few weeks in my coat,¬†walking on the streets of an iced cold London, or glancing at the park outside the window, drinking hot chocolate, covered by blankets. I enjoyed the snow…yes, I did…but I am also beginning to look for the good weather and wondering when I will start to dress up in a more ‘summery’ way.

In the lack of a warm weather, but still with the desire to finally change a bit my dress code, I go around the city, observing what the shops offer for the new season, browsing through the websites, catching new trends, making lists of what I like more.

As you will probably know by now, here at GOOSEBUMPS Mag, as the nerds as we usually are, when we make lists and wishlists, we do it in a proper way. And of course, also in this case I could not resist to the need to make one.

So here is a list of the SS 13 trends that attract me more, while waiting for the Spring to come.

Cannot wait!

1.A LOUD PARTY OF PRINTS

This is a quite exciting way to wear clothes. Stripes with dots, squares, flowers, and other different kind of drawings and patterns, mixed in the same outfit, even in the same single item. I like this style because it is colourful, it is fearless and it gives you the chance to experiment and try different combinations and options. The risk: wearing different pattern all together apparently without any specific rule, but reaching a wonderful final result is the most difficult rule to follow. Try this at home (and outside if it works).

2.GEOMETRIC BLACK&WHITE

Mainly defined by lines and squares, only two (non)colours, the perfect couple: black and white. Like an optical effect, the black and white combination is back again even more exciting and interesting. What can I say? We can not live without it!

3.A SQUARED WOMAN

The attraction of the squares is always powerful, mixed with the right colour combination and shape is a winning choice. Let’s play chess then!

4.PSYCHEDELIC GARDEN

Like in the Rococo’s Trompe L’Oeil and gardens, this SS season’s prints are a triumph of flowers. Patckworks, applications, patterns, textures…the flower theme is shown as a rich psychedelic garden: bold and bright colours are mixed with a wide range of flowers and plants that in there grow wild.

5.BOYFRIEND(LY)

Baggy-high waisted trousers, boyfriend blazers, oversize masculine jackets, buttoned up shirts, men’s style shorts. This is definitely my favourite trend: menswear for women, mixed with a pair of high heels, a stretch top or a skirt…silmpy fantastic!

6.SAND AND POWDER

In all their shades sandy colours always have a big appeal on me. They can match with everything and with every skin colour. It is definitely a fascinating colour and big trend for this SS 13.

7.TARTAN

It is a pattern that we are beginning to see now, coming from the last pieces of this winter, but I definitely believe that Tartan will be a strong trend, specially from next winter. I have not had enough of it!

8.BIG VOLUME

Oversize and structured jackets, shirts that seem three sizes bigger than the normal size, extra volumes on shoulders and shirts. To me big volumes equally matching with ‘tight’ volumes in my everyday outfit is a choice that I can not give up.

9.BLUE

Wow, let me say that: blue is having a massive impact as a new upcoming trend! All the shades are accepted (navy blue is my favourite). This colour gives more dimension and and almost ‘life’ to clothes. Perfect to match both with clash colours and pastel/nude/light colurs.

10.OVER-THE-TOP SHOES

I could not not avoid to include shoes. Season after season shoes are having a part ever more important  and almost a separate and unique role in the total outfit. Here the selection from the fashion shows, but if you go straight to the High Street you will have a really good time finding eccentric and fascinating shoes.

Let’s spend a (worthy) word about – H&M+Brick Lane Bikes

Here something juicy for both fashion and bikes lovers.

The Scandinavian Company H&M and the (east) Londoner bicycles brand, Brick Lane Bikes, have put together their strengths with the purpose of creating something special for the today’s man. On 7th March 2013 will be launched a men’s collection inspired by the urban cycling scene.

There could not be a better time for such a wise move: cycling in London is not just a quick way to get around the city,  but has now become a big trend and a lifestyle. So why not to feel completely cool while cycling? H&M has provided to this need creating pieces that can be worn on and of the bicke, using organic and recycled materials, understanding the sustainability and the practicality of cycling.

Here you go…let’s have a ‘cool ride’ !
