Trend Spotting at Reiss

Reiss is notoriously good at hitting the key trends each season, and I always think of them as high-street verging on the edge of designer. Here I’ve picked four of my favourite trends for SS13 and shown you which Reiss pieces you need to hit these looks … x


Monochrome trend key pieces with Reiss

What SS13 list could go without mentioning monochrome? Perhaps the one trend everyone’s heard about, and the high street have been quick to follow. I am not a huge fan of the more graphic monochrome looks (stripes and geometric patterns) but I prefer a softer approach of subtle prints and simple colour blocking. It’s all about keeping the look clean and chic. Team black jeans and a white knit with black boots and a white bag for a cool, simplistic look, and inject some colour with a bright lipstick. A black and white polkadot dress is a feminine and flirty way to try the trend and perfect for summer.


Graphic, floral and oriental prints and patterns trend SS13

This season, graphic patterns, lots of floral and oriental-inspired prints are in. I love how subtle many of these patterns are – it makes them easier to mix and match, and is an accessible way to try out prints. Try printed jeans with plain tees for a dash of pattern, or accessories which nod to patterns through their design – like the flower bag and colour-block flats above.


 Metallic accessories trend with Reiss

For the ultimate urban cool, this trend is all about hard, metallic accessories that will toughen up any look. Go for belts with metal chains and straps for a literal take on the trend, and team them with simple dresses to make them stand our, or take a more subtle approach with metallic bags and printed accessories to add that hint of shimmer.


Mannish silhouettes trend SS13 with Reiss

In my book, mannish silhouettes are always in. I love how subtly sexy oversized clothing can be, as long as you get the balance between femininity and boyishness right. Go for unshapely dresses in a girly colour and team with heels for chic sex-appeal, or keep it simple with oversized knits and tops with skinny jeans. A wide-brimmed hat in a dark colour is always an easy way to inject a bit of boy-power into your outfit.
