Floral trend: Willow print

SS13 trends are highly influenced by eccentric and Japanese inspired florals, like the willow print in these skinnies from YMC (see previous post about the brand here).
Many designers looked East for spring/summer 2013, and we saw in both fashion shows and high-street a rise in Oriental inspirations: kimono prints, silky textures, origami shapes...
YMC has interpreted this trend in a very unique way, by using those Oriental prints on casualwear (skinny jeans, bomber jackets, jumpsuits and sweatpants). They have evolved from a military/utilitarian wear focused brand, onto a softer and feminine style.
I personally love the jumpsuit of their SS13 collection, but if you want to keep it subtle, you can pair these skinnies with an electric blue knitted jumper to brighten it up.

I wanna go surfing

Clover Canyon surprises me with every collection they launch. Already presented to you earlier this year, the upcoming collections, including Fall 2013, are a bliss to the eyes: landscapes, symmetrical prints, folkloric inspiration, all presented on a colorful tornado.
But what I wanted to show you is this MUST HAVE (yes, I really must have it) "endless summer" neoprene skirt. Prints are on trend, so let's embrace them!
Don't need to go for the all prints, matchy-matchy look. You can wear it with a plain, sorbet color jumper or T-shirt if it's warm enough, and substitute the court shoes below with wedges or sandals. Top it up with a gold statement necklace and you'll be ready to go with the soft, summery flow.

Enjoy the ride.
