Although the weather is still stuck on winter, the fashion world are moving on to spring (hooray!). I thought I’d give all you lovely Freya fans a taste of spring’s hottest trends as this is mainly what I am working on at the moment for my clients at My Style Companion who are looking to update their wardrobe for the season ahead.
I’ve just a picked a few of my favourite ss13 trends here and my top Freya underwear picks to go with them – after all, there’s no point investing in new clothes to update your wardrobe if you’ve not updated your undies drawer too!
Get in Line
Monochrome stripes are the motif of the season, whether they are horizontal, vertical, diagonal, wide, thin, and in every and any combination! Wear stripes from head to toe or simply add a striped accessory but there’ll be no getting away from this trend in ss13.
CAPSULE UNDERWEAR PIECE: The Freya Deco range in nude is perfect for black and white stripes where you need excellent support but a smooth outline. A busy print under a stripe may cause dizziness! However this bra is perfect for every top in your wardrobe – I’ve just received my new new one. A can’t live without wardrobe staple for me.
The Frill of it All
Frothy frills and ruffles were huge on the catwalk for ss13 but think more structured and architectural ruffles, whether in this seasons popular monochrome look or in fondant fancy colours.
The Deco Honey range in deep purple is the perfect accompaniment if you have a touch of the frill fetish, as the bra is simple and smooth, perfect to go underneath a detailed top, where the briefs have just a touch of frill. So cute! One of my faves!
Florals are always a welcome print in spring and for 2013 we’ll be getting dose of flower power whether in ditsy floral prints, vintage tea dresses, graphic florals or 3D details.
Freya’s Lyla Liquorice lingerie sets off this trend perfectly
Obi belts, kimono sleeves, origami folds and graphic blossoms graced the catwalks with everything from Geisha’s to martial arts influencing what we wear for ss13. In the past the orient has inspired designers when it comes to evening dresses and gowns, but never has the east been so apparent in day wear before.
The pretty Lila Freya set with a beautiful lilac oriental bird print is a great way to celebrate this trend if you feel a kimono sleeve may hamper progress during your day!
If you have a bit of a sweet tooth ss13′s pastel colour palette will be one to watch out for from spearmint green, powderpuff pink, lemon haze and lavender purple, the look was minimalistic with clean lines, unusual layering – simple feminine chic at it’s best.
Freya’s Ashlee Candy moulded bra is the perfect lingerie set if like me, you’re cutting back on chocolate after the Christmas holidays, but still like to indulge in something sweet now and again!
