The spring 2013 fashion season made its debut in force showing off the style vision of some of the most reputable names in the fashion industry and it seems that two trends differentiate so far, the clan and chic trend and the edgy, sophisticated prints and boldly colored trend. Kate Phelan, Topshop Unique’s creative director, chose to take the clean and chic path with the brand’s spring 2013 collection and her ‘safe’ option seems to be perfect for the honeys that love to adopt laid-back styles that ooze sophistication.

Calling the new Topshop Unique spring 2013 collection, ‘Topshop’s big sister’, Kate Phelan proved that sometimes less is more and that fabulousness doesn’t have to come with extravagance, heavy layering or a sophisticated color palette. In fact, the designer went timeless with her color palette choice for this collection, opting mostly for monochromes, simple black and white fabrics, with the exception of a fabulous yellow cab hue that energizes the monochrome fashion items, a detail that can instantly transform a look from boring to super chic.

In order to bring that uniqueness that everyone is searching for this year, Topshop Unique put on display an array of fabulous asymmetric shapes that seemed fluid, sophisticated and modern all at the same time. The asymmetric patterns could also be visible on the mesh insertion dresses that show just enough skin to capture the public’s attention, thus managing to add that perfect dose of sexiness that every woman can benefit from.

Taking us on a glam trip through the streets of London, the collection reveals the need for some glitzy glamor by revealing a high dose of metallic silver items that range from stylish dresses to perfectly tailored pants and skirts. The masculine inspired suits and elongated blazers added a power-feel to the collection as did the fabulous, uber-popular display of geometric prints. Chic yet simple, the collection is worthy of praise, so check it out and tell us if the new spring 2013 style revealed at Topshop Unique suits your personality.
