2012 was all about expressing our personality through dress.In 2013,this will change but the syle will still be bold and fun.2013 will be characterized by more clasical designs,simple cuts,futuristic shapes and earthy/coral hues.Activities of 2013 will range from sipping martinis,cocktail parties and chilling in a yatch.Fashion will redefine elegance and polish sophistication.Anyway,enough of the blah,blah,blah here are my 2013 must-haves;

Picture
COLLARLESS NECKLINES
These have been around for generations but as i said redefining elegance.These designs will now take more classy fabrics to give a sexy flirty mood but still command respect.The best part of this is(especially if you are like me)you get to show off your latest neckpieces on a more or less bare chest.This will loose its voice screaming elegance if paired with the right accessories.

2.SELF BELTED GARDEN DRESSES
These are defined by their floral or tribal detail that hit platinum in 2012.However,in 2013,these dresses will come with in built belts that will resemble the pattern of the dress.I know you've seen this i the past but am not sure what era.Kate Middleton has been spotted wearing this design already.

3.HARDCASE HANDBAGS
This tend has graced al major fashion runways and i believe it will go well into 2013.Hardcase just means travel case/trunks inspired bags.We all noticed bags got a wee tad structured in 2012 but in 2013,we are talking briefcasey with a less corporate feel and more of a luxurious taste.Any design that depict this is a definate keeper.

4. BOUCLE SUITS
What the hell is boucle?well, I will be a dear and tell you.Boucle is a 3-ply yarn that has one thread looser than the other 3 resulting in a rough texture fabric.Best way to explain this is using pics so here goes.PS If you are a fan of 'MAD MEN' you have seen these enough times.

5.SLASH NECKCUTS
Remember how I said 2013 is all about simple cuts.This trend defines just that.Slash necklines are fun,elegant and unexpected.(i have to get me one of this!)

Picture
6.DOCUMENT CLUTCH
This must be the one trend that am most excited about.Talk about revolutionalizing the oversize clutch bag and adding a big chunk of business folder.But wait,heres the kicker,its UNISEX.

Picture
7.CAPS
The best way to explain this is in one word."dudette cap"ok fine two words.This is especially for the ladies.Even in 2013,the gods have decided to gift you something to borrow from your boyfriend's closet.Yes.make sure the cap you borrow obnoxiously screams 'dude"(can't wait to try this one out)Crap!that means getting a boyfriend,oh well 2013 is months away ave got time.

Picture
8.REVAMPED COWGIRL BOOTS
You've all seen these especially if you are a fan of wizards of waverly place like I am.If you havent,I mean the cowboy boots.In 2013,these will be a fashion staple in summer and spring.Only tip is,make sure it is more now than then.hence the 'revamp'

Picture
9.LUXE CUFF
I think everyone in Nairobi is wearing oe kind or the other.If yours is more fun than elegant you might need to gift your pet cat that piece and get a more 2013 friendly one.When you are shopping for one of this think egyptian empress! 

so get out there and go crazy shopping and remember,you can rock anything as long as you've got the balls!

I am definitely on board with the trust the markets thing.I am guilty of buying anything i find in the markets whether i have it in my closet already or not.Still,I know there are people out there who follow the fashion trends.This kind of write-up is dedicated to them.
