Here’s presenting to you the hottest trends in street style for 2013.

1. Leather Skirts 2013

A must have for all leather lovers! The trend of leather skirts is not an entirely new concept; however, 2013 gives a new dimension to leather skirts in terms of length. We have tried leather minis and short skirts and it’s now time for knee length and below knee length leather skirts.

These leather skirts are patterned around a body hugging waist line that flares up towards the bottom. Leather skirts are best paired with short t-shirts and buttoned down blouses.

Oversize handbags are an inseparable part of street style because you can stuff as many things that need to go along with you, in style. You need not worry about loading up your hands with things you need to carry and can just stuff everything into the most stylish oversize handbag.

Oversized Handbags

Oversize handbags are meant for a casual look. Considering the trend in 2013, light colored oversize handbags like white, blue, pink and yellow are in vogue.

5. Knitted Jackets 2013

For the months of winter, knitted jackets do a great job with protecting you from the chill as well as making you look fashionable. This look is a complete “no-no” for the summer, but it certainly is a great way to beat the winter chill with a cool fashion statement.

6. Jumpsuits 2013

Want something you can jump into with ease and take to the streets in no time? If yes, then jumpsuits are the thing for you. Jumpsuits get trendier with each passing year. And while 2012 saw a rage in floral jumpsuits, we can tone it down a few notches with trendy mono colored jumpsuits. Long or short doesn’t matter, both are quite trendy and in vogue for 2013.

7. Floral Wide Leg Pants 2013

Taking the trend of floral and printed leggings forward is the trend of floral wide leg pants in 2013. With floral prints that are pretty much in trend all year through and with the trend of wide leg pants resurfacing in 2013, wearing floral wide leg pants is the most fashionable way to combine both these trends and give you a modern, edgy look.

Street Style 2013

8. Distressed Denims 2013

The trend of torn jeans acts like an eclipse. They appear, disappear and reappear and disappear and appear again and the cycle continues. Distressed jeans are trending in 2013 with classic blue denims ripped along in length for a rugged street look.

Living a busy life, always on-the-go, our favorite stars manage to somehow look inspiring even when they are sporting laid-back off-duty attires. Leaving the red carpet glamour behind, when the celebrities hit the streets they become just like anyone of us. Except maybe for the “being followed by the paparazzi” part that’s missing from our daily scenario. Other than that, there’s a great deal of fashion inspiration and styling tips to be learned from their unique experience, and that’s what we plan on doing today. So if you’re stuck on ideas, this series of articles could eventually turn out to be extremely inspiring when it comes to reworking the wardrobe.

Taylor Swift is the undisputed queen of those feminine garments touched by a vintage flare, styled with bold red lips and the most adorable hair do’s. Currently promoting her latest country album entitled “Red“, the singer has been spotted looking gorgeous these past couple of weeks and here are the street style looks that we loved most.

Taylor-Swift-Street-Style-01

The beginning of November caught Taylor Swift promoting her newest album in London. Spotted as she was leaving the hotel, the country star looked flawless in a super pretty ensemble, perfect for a busy day out in the city. We fell in love with her French Connection Polka Dot sweater featuring a cute cat detailing, that she teamed with a cropped pair of Theory Testra Tailor pants.

A pair of dainty O Jour ballet flats and a large whiskey colored preppy brown satchel perfectly complemented the cozy look. Taylor finished off her lady-like appearance with a pearl necklace, orange lips, a classic pair Ray-Ban shades and a lovely braided up-do.

On the same day in London, Taylor was photographed leaving her hotel again, but this time donning one of her signature garments that consisted in a feminine and quirky NW3 Dice Print with contrast collar shirt dress. The casual frock was styled with a pair of cool black tights, the preppy satchel and the same O Jour ballet flats. Taylor also kept the bright colored lips and the fancy braided up-do for the day. Perfectly adorable ? We believe so.

On November 17, Taylor Swift joined Selena Gomez for dinner at the Osteria La Buca restaurant. For the occasion, the country singer kept things simple and comfortable by sporting a knitted sweater featuring white and black stripes, a pair of dark denim fitted jeans and a cute pair of Ralph Lauren Collection Quintessa velvet loafers. What seems like Taylor’s favourite bag of the month, the large whiskey satchel, her signature red lips and a casual bun, added the final touches.

On November 21, Taylor proved once again that she has maybe on of the most fashionable, but always comfortable travel-ready styles, being photographed at the Narita International Airport in Japan. The blonde beauty effortlessly mixed a Ralph Lauren slim fit cable cashmere sweater in Antique Sage, with a pair of Ralph Lauren Atlantic Leather patch jodphur.

The Ralph Lauren Collection Quintessa velvet loafers, the preppy leather satchel and bright orange lips complemented the smart and sweet travel ensemble.

Shoe Trend Spotlight: Metallic Accents

The Spring 2013 Runways may have been filled with delightful attires, structural pieces, daring ensembles and ethereal gowns, but behind each impeccable design, we spotted bold, modern and eye-catching accessories in ruling metallic accents. The biggest shoe trend of the upcoming season has already picked his next fashion victims, all charmed by the mesmerizing metallic footwear that currently rules the fashion scene.

A pair of statement heels and an empowering attitude is all it really takes to rule the world, and we, much like everyone else, already fell in love with the metallic trend. The silver and gold numbers represent the most inspiring fashion direction envisioned for spring and summer. Runway favorites, street style and red carpet magic, off-duty takes, they’re all here, ready to convince you to join the fashionable “mad for metallic” crowd. Embrace the futuristic twists!

2013-Shoe-Trend---Runway-Metallic

Spotted on the Runway. It was the Spring 2013 collections that really set the tone for the metallic notes that completely transformed the usual footwear into a loud and modern statement. Either they were paired to the beautifully layered looks in the Chloe collection, the checked patterns in the Dries Van Noten one, or to the soft but edgy silhouettes featured in the Giambattista Valli presentation, the metallic heels shined bright on the catwalk, all on their own. Balmain, Viktor & Rolf and Rue Du Mail are just a few of the other established fashion houses that played upon the futuristic accents in their Spring 2013 collections.

Red-Carpet---Metallic-Shoes

Celebrities Love the Metallic Shoes. It was only the next natural step for the celebrities to start sporting the modern shoe trend on the red carpet. Alicia Keys emphasized her elegant look with a pair of Gianvito Rossi mirrored silver patent leather pumps for the 2012 European Music Awards.

Zooey Deschanel styled her pair of gold metallic pumps with a navy blue mini dress, and a retro bouffant on the red carpet, while Emma Roberts attended the Rag & Bone flagship store opening in Los Angeles, wearing a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Fall 2012 golden pumps.

Street Style - Metallic Shoes

Street Style Magic. The streets belonging to the biggest cities in the world provided us with the most inspiring examples yet, on how to style the metallic shoes, even during the cold season. A splash of gold on the heels, a pair of silver pumps, subtle touches of color, skinny jeans or black tights, make the trend appear wearable, stylish and beyond modern. There’s something about a metallic pair of heels that screams high-fashion, and no, you don’t have to be a world renown blogger attending the Paris Fashion Week to rock this trend.

Metallic-Shoes---Off-Duty-Glam

Off-Duty Glam. Luckily, the metallic craze is not only centered around high-heels and platforms. Gold and silver flats make for the most intriguing and chic accessories when paired with flattering silhouettes, earthly tones and clean lines. They add a touch of eccentricity and femininity to even the most simple and plain outfits. It’s the perfect way to stay fashionable and comfortable, without looking like you’re trying too hard. After all, the real beauty lies in the little details, right?

Miranda Kerr Rules The New York City Streets

They say chic doesn’t ever come effortlessly, but all it takes to realize that for some ladies it’s practically impossible to get it wrong, is having a quick look at Miranda Kerr‘s impeccable fashion style. Now that the temperatures have dropped considerably, it’s only fair to begin seeking comfort in the process of gathering inspiration for the seasons to come, especially when that inspiration is described as timeless. The 29 years-old supermodel is maybe the best dressed celebrity when it comes to street style, raising the bars pretty high for anyone willing to follow on her footsteps.

Whether she attends a business meeting, or she simply enjoys a walk with her son, Miranda always manages to somehow look flawless. Her candid shoots look like pages torn out from a high-fashion magazine, and that’s why we decided to celebrate Miranda’s effortless style with five of the most beautiful looks she recently wore on the streets of New York. Get ready to steal her style, to find out why are her outfits always head to toe perfect, and what she loves to wear.

Miranda-Kerr-01

Miranda Kerr debuted her fashionable month of November in Manhattan, photographed as she was headed to attend the rehearsals for the 2012 Victoria’s Secrets Fashion Show. The Australian supermodel sported a chic but undeniable sexy ensemble, rocking a pair of black leather over-the-knee boots from Hermes’ Fall 2012 collection. She paired the boots to an Alexander Wang gray tweed mini-dress featuring black side panels and long sleeves, and to a super chic wool blend double breasted Givenchi coat. A pair of Flint Hasta Luego sunglasses and a Givenchi black leather duffle, perfectly accessorized Miranda’s stylish ensemble.

On November 6, Miranda Kerr sported a fashionable and beyond inspiring layered look while in New York City. She took on the streets wearing a sheer gray Isabel Marant Fall 2010 sweater, under a Chloe patchwork mid-blue denim shirt that she topped with a gray Isabel Marant Khan tweed coat. Miranda kept her look edgy and color coordinated, by incorporating a pair of Maison Martin Margiela black leather high-waisted shorts into the stylish outfit. The same Givenchi “Antigona” black leather duffle, a pair of feminine Miu Miu Fall 2011 cat eye sunglasses, and a pair of Isabel Marant berry suede and leather boots complemented the modern look.

Miranda-Kerr-03

Proof that even the celebrities have their favorite wardrobe items that they love to wear on repeat, Miranda Kerr took another spin on her gray Isabel Marant Khan tweed coat, and successfully inserted it into a slightly more casual outfit. She paired the elegant coat to a blue denim button down shirt, and to a pair of Nobody “Cult” dark blue skinny jeans. To add a touch of fun to her minimal look, Miranda opted for a pair of leopard print loafers, and a retro pair of Stella McCartney two tone sunglasses. A luxurious Cartier Juste Un Clou nail bracelet, and a Burberry the Barrel suede nubuck leather bag added the final touches.

Miranda-Kerr-04

When these gorgeous images of Miranda Kerr surfaced the internet on November 12, I think every woman that saw them must have wished to take her place for at least one day. Fashion met perfection when the supermodel walked the New York streets in her Victoria Beckham three-quarter sleeve sheath dress featuring a V-neckline, styled with a Miu Miu boxcalf leather belt. The Miu Miu Fall 2011 cat eye sunglasses, a pale blue Prada Pyramid Accordion frame leather bag and a pair of beige Lanvin pointed-toe asymmetric leather pumps completed the flawless look.

Miranda-Kerr-05

The most recent pictures of Miranda Kerr spotted the supermodel at the Milk Studios on November 14, together with her super-adorable son, Flynn. For the day, Miranda chose an elegant all-black ensemble with just a hint of cobalt blue. She matched a black mini-dress to a black Isabel Marant Fall 2010 wool cocoon coat, and to the black leather Givenchy “Antigona” duffle. The Linda Farrow Luxe black and natural python sunglasses, and a pair of Pierre Hardy colorblock suede sandals emphasized the modern appearance.

Needless to say we are completely in love with Miranda’s style, beauty and attitude.
