This summer, don't even think about wearing the same worn-out, so-called "boho chic" clothes that you have been relying on for the past five years. With this summer's collections of fabulous trends, it's time to update your wardrobe for 2013. Designers have pulled out all the stops this season, with not a cliché pastel in sight; expect to find exciting trends that push the boundaries of the predictable summer collections and give us something new and fresh to inject into our summer wardrobe.
Starting with florals, but not as you know them! Sure, you are likely to see the odd rose-adorned tea dress but, if you are the trendsetting type, then you will be more interested in the Louis Vuitton, Prada or Holly Fulton approach to our favourite symbol of summer; masculine tailoring decorated with floral emblems, pop art prints or clothing which contrasts unusual materials, such as plastics, and even neon colours. It is all about thinking out of the box and hinting at summer rather plastering it all over your wardrobe with sickeningly sweet, soft shades.
The style-conscious will also be able to work the monochrome madness sweeping the catwalks; although this is not exactly uncharted fashion territory, as with the majority of this summer's key trends, black and white has been taken up a notch with block, bold monochrome rather than discreet submerging patterns. Similarly, garish geometric and graphic prints, asymmetric lines and the fringe and frill detailing, which should be cliché but isn't, are all summer trends that defy summer wardrobe conventions with their cool, slick and sharp lines that are bold, daring and masculine; a far cry from your usual tiresome summer holiday wear. For those who are not ready to dive straight into unfamiliar fashion territory, many of these catwalk trends have been translated into wearable summer holiday wardrobe items by high street retailers.
