Step out of the shadows and into the bright, bold light of this year’s loudest fashion trends. In 2013, the runways of Paris, Milan, London and New York lit up for the spring, summer, autumn and winter designer collections for year round decadence and fun. Use the following looks to highlight an outfit or dress from head to toe to make a colourful entrance.Outerwear
The autumn designer collections saw coats and jackets come in an array of styles, shapes and colours, making this trend one of the most versatile this year. Altuzarra followed in the white footsteps of designers such as Derek Lam and Tommy Hilfiger with oversized white fur coats with black panelling, whilst Jason Wu followed on from his spring collection with colour blocks and durable materials like his black panelled, camel trench coat. Marchesa was perhaps the most flamboyant with oriental motifs in billowing, shimmering satin.Eyes
The eyes and brows were very much a main beauty focus in the spring and summer collections. Marc Jacobs transformed his models into the style icon Edie Sedgwick with unmistakable bold brows and heavily lined eyes with a blonde pixie cut. Blue and red/pink tones were also a big trend with designer such as Donna Karan and Vera Wang, brightening the eyes of their models with vibrant neon pink shadows and more delicate red tones respectively. Jazz up a smoky eye with blue or red tints to mix up a staple evening look. Brows were also bold and filled at Prada. Many of the designers following this trend left the rest of the face neutral in order for the eyes to have full impact on the catwalk.

The spring and summer collections were a huge pattern contrast to the more traditional fabrics seen in the autumn and winter shows. Alexander Wang and Jason Wu amongst many others showcased striking garments in black and white stripes, checks and houndstooth. Tommy Hilfiger and Michael Kors mixed up the monochrome with coloured stripes. Other designers such as Versace and Altuzarra mixed patterns and fabrics together to create a chic version of the timeless bohemian trend, with plenty of chunky, tasselled accessories.
