What to wear - SS13

I thought I would put together some of my favourite runway looks from SS13, but looks which are wearable and what I think the high street will translate into something affordable. I could be completely wrong but these are the looks i'll be taking inspiration from.

Iridescent fabrics is something i'm looking forward to, the satins and the lame. It's not as in your face as glitter and sequins but it's still brings an ooze of glamour to your outfit.
Oversized and structural silhouettes are key, after the cocoon shape taking trend this winter the oversized look is here to stay. With big sleeves or big hips its important to contrast your piece with a perfectly fitting opposition.

Leather isn't going anywhere next season and I hope the pulled apart look translates to the high street.
White is always sported during the summer and the clean palette is refreshed with simple silhouettes, however it is easy to get dirty. 
What's clear next season is rounded off shoulders and arms, slightly masculine but it works well in soft colours to balance out the look.
