Go Bold or Go Home: 2013 Fashion Trends!

Bold bright colours and prints dominated the fashion world in 2012 and it looks like they are not going to die down anytime soon. Now that 2013 is upon us, let's talk this year's fashion trends! Of course, I will not be purchasing these designer ones. Don't think my wallet could handle that kind of dent. In situations like this is when topshop and H&M come in handy and  that's when bargain hunting starts!
1.   Bermuda shorts: You want to pull off the slouchy, cool girl look; well now there is a solution.   Bermuda shorts are the only way to go! Yes ladies, this year we can all pull off those cheek-baring cutoffs; flattering and ultra-chic. Do you dare?

2.   Black and White: Strong black and whites, are back. The great thing about black and white is that they can be pulled off at any budget and can be worn all year round. Its a WIN WIN situation!

3.   Bold Stripes: Time to take those simple stripes for a spin! When worn head to toe, they are just plain cool and when worn with navy, they are naval chic. What's not like!

4.   Peekaboo: Love to show a bit of skin, well this year you are in luck. Daring cutouts, high splits and midrif bearers are sure to make you stand out of the crowd!

8.   Flats and Low heels: 90s pointy heels are back, better than ever. These lady like heels are a lovely option to have at hand. I definitely need a pair; cheap one at that haha.

So there you have it, a new year with some amazing trends. Its all about getting graphic, rocking pencils dresses and neons, 90s nostalgia which is all about looking scruffy and time travelling back to the 60s.Time to embrace your Individuality, Recklessness and Creativity. Be Youthful!
