In addition to the color mint, and Asian-spiration, another major trend was super mod, as demonstrated by Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2013 ready-to-wear designed by the uber-talented and drop dead gorgeous designer Marc Jacobs. Mod and black-and-white were both identified as key trends in the March issues of both Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.
But, as I already have plenty of monochromatic printed frocks and tops in my closet, I’m looking toward swimwear to embody the trend. Moreover, I was dreaming of tropical retreats to far off places throughout February—I do believe resortwear comes out at a time to torture those of us who can’t escape the office to warmer climates. So, for your next tropical vacation, look chic and mod in a 1960s style black-and-white striped swimsuit, in a high-waisted bikini or classic maillot.
