2013 is already proving to be a year for classic and timeless fashion. We have seen, what I call, "timeless trends" emerge from the Spring/Summer 2013 runways, and I predict Fall/Winter 2013 fashion to follow suit. From Gretchen Jones, John Patrick, M. Patmos, and David Peck to Donna Karan, Escada, Prabal Gurung, and Pierre Balmain, designers are embracing wardrobe staples with classic silhouettes, such as narrow trousers, cropped jackets, fitted blazers, full skirts, and silk blouses.
As these timeless styles trickle down to mainstream markets, my hope is that quality will follow, ever combating disposable fast fashion and making classic fashion more accessible, affordable, and available to all.
