New Look Spring Summer 2013
With only 10 days to go until Christmas, you're probably not that focused on your spring summer 2013 wardrobe. But I have a feeling this first look at the New Look spring summer 2013 collections from their recent press day will change your mind.
The feminine, floral collections with hot pink, lime green and coral really caught my eye and had me day dreaming of fresh spring days (without layers and layers of knitwear!). The stand-out pieces included pretty pastel boucle dresses with exposed zips and neckline jewellery that are so perfect for a summer wedding outfit or a day at the races and a prom style dress with metallic and pink flowers that matched the embellishment usually seen on the catwalk.
But cutting through the classic spring shades was the black and white collection that had more than a nod to the current grungey, 90s trends. Mixing stripes, skater skirts, bomber jackets, statements tees, polka dots and over-sized knits, this collection isn't your typical spring collection but I love it.
But it doesn't stop there, as always one of the main focuses of any New Look press day are the shoes and accessories. I still can't get enough of a chunky chain with neon pops worn with a plain tee, and there were lots to choose from. The bolted, bronze clutch bag with geometric shapes was love at first site - perfect to add some punch to a black and white look.
The new collections will be in store and online at New Look in the new year.
