Khaki is one of the biggest “colour trends” for AW13. The best part? It can be flattering for every body shape and personal style. Here’s how it’s done
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of research into 2013 trends. And by research, I mean poring over blogs, watching online runway shows and flipping through magazines... Tough life, I know!
In the upcoming AW13 season, one thing I'm seeing is a focus on specific colours in a variety of shades, rather than a palette of different colours. Colour trends are great as you can look on-trend without losing your personal style.
The first colour to hit the stores in preparation for the new season is khaki. If you dare, shake it up with a splash of camo, and keep an eye out for more 'colour trends' coming soon.
This look is perfect for pear shapes. The slim pants are more flattering than a boot or wide-leg, and the statement stripes draw the eye to your top half. The light knit will also add volume to balance your bottom half without being too bulky.
