Linear Luxuries

Todd Lynn Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

As a fashion blogger, I have covered Milan, Paris, New York and London fashion weeks this year for Spring/Summer 2013.  The trends that emerged from each location were quite similar, dare I say predictable.  However, some trends really stood out for me as easy to replicate and follow, affordable to touch on and strong enough to draw inspiration from.  Designers appear to be indulging in the linear, zigzag, and striped patterns this summer.  

Swapping the “Black and White” Chanel inspired monochrome colors we have seen on the Winter 2012/13 runways for brighter colours and more striking graphic’s.

This feast for the eyes is the brainchild of designer Todd Lynn.  This lesser known designer designs sophisticated, elegant, and flattering dresses for the everywoman. 

Utilising long lines and elongating the figure by nipping and tucking the fabric at key points on the model’s bodies, I would also describe this dress as nautical.  We all know how big the nautical trend is this summer.  This dress stood out for me as wearable, practical, and I think it will be very easy to find a similar style on the high street or indeed in the DoneDeal fashion section! 

DoneDeal have a vast array of stylish, wearable and affordable summer dresses that can look stunning by day and that can be easily transformed by night using key accessories and a little make up.

Dolce and Gabbana Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Furthermore, DoneDeal have a huge range of vintage inspired dresses on offer.  Vintage is a trend that emerges time and time again and each summer seems to bring a revival of all things retro.  Fashion house Dolce and Gabbana have used an authentic retro colour pallet in their summer 2013 collection.  

Blue, yellow, and brown trimmed with crisp white offset this gorgeous dress.  I have seen similar dresses in the DoneDeal fashion section and I always try to snap them up, as they are easy to wear and really make a big statement of just how fashion savvy you really are.  It takes guts to wear such austere colours.  However, the impact that wearing a garment like this makes is fierce.

Top Tip

Team a vintage dress with over sized accessories, and wedges to put a modern twist on any classic item.
