It’s maddening to buy clothes that have a one-season shelf life. We spend a lot of time shopping for clothing, that we might only wear for a short amount of time. I’m always interested in getting more mileage out of things, even trendy items, which by their very nature are short-lived (maybe 2-4 seasons, i.e. all-white has been going steadily for about 3 seasons and is heading into 2013 as strong as ever).
With the Spring 2013 runway collections wrapping up in Paris, next year’s trends are already starting to crystallize. Since most of us are still shopping for this season, why not kill two birds with one stone? You can add a few forward-looking trends to your closet right now, that will have you ahead of the curve come March.
I got a kick out of the Dries Van Noten spring collection this year. He makes me want to pick up some plaid and relive the 90s. His layering techniques and materials are masterful. Click the link above and see how he turned grunge into a posh affair.
My Spring Fashion Pinterest board is up to 141 looks. If you want to see what else is trending, go take a look and get ahead on your shopping.
