Quirky Trends of 2013

Yes. 2014 is well and truly underway. As we say goodbye to all that is so last year, we take a look back at some of the popular, and er, slightly weird, trends of 2013 that we were all (and probably still are!) loving.

5. Cat Lady

Quirky Trends of 2013 - 5. Cat Lady

Yep, the cat’s outta the bag. We all know watching cat videos is one of the best things ever. That was until we discovered CAT CLOTHING! We turned into crazy cat ladies last year, wearing feline finds to make our outfits look extra purrfect. (Sorry, couldn’t help ourselves!)

From dressed up moggies to chic feline prints, we just couldn’t get enough of it.

 

4. Halloweird

Quirky Trends of 2013 - 4. HalloweirdAs usual, we discovered some pretty quirky Halloween costume ideas. There was just too much to choose from, from animal onesies to galaxy leggings and bubble wrap suits – we were jumping at the chance to accept that costume party invite.

Of course, our fave celeb inspo last year comes from the one and only Queen of Twerk, Miley Cyrus. Where do we even start…?!

 

3. Back To The Future

Quirky Trends of 2013 - 3. Back To The FutureMetallics, creepers, studs, spikes and holographic pieces. We felt out of this world wearing one of our futuristic outfits. And it sure did make those heads turn.

One of our all-time wardrobe must-haves is a metallic clutch bag (gold, or silver) which is sure to match any evening outfit.

 

2. Talk To The Sweat

Quirky Trends of 2013 - 2. Talk To The SweatWho needs to talk the talk when your sweatshirt says it all, eh?! Slogan sweats were all the rage last year with you trendy fashionistas making a statement wherever you went.

These weirdly wonderful pieces can be worked in so many ways, we were just spoilt for choice! From pairing with some joggers and strappy sandals for a sports luxe outfit or adding to a plaid skirt and creepers for schoolgirl chic, we loved rocking this look.

 

1. Rainbow Hair

Quirky Trends of 2013 - 1. Rainbow HairYep, you guessed it. Hair chalk has made it to numero uno in our top 5 quirky trends of 2013. A style we’re STILL trying to pull off, come rain or shine, this year!

Go for pastels this Spring/Summer to keep bang on trend and try curling your hair beforehand for a long-lasting effect.

 

And now we just can’t wait to see what weird and wonderful micro-trends 2014 has to offer…

Los Angeles-based Italian fashion blogger and actress Marta Pozzan talks to Shopcade about her love for anything Miu Miu, modeling, her friend Jaime King, and – you guessed it – Christmas shopping! Fashion aficionados, feel free to take notes!

Hi Marta! Thanks for joining us for our Christmas special! What has been the best present you have received? And the one you would rather forget about?

The best present I’ve ever received was a military green Miu Miu coat. I love Miu Miu; it’s my favorite brand ever, so that gift was awesome. The ones that I’d rather forget are mainly earrings or bracelets I get gifted by people I’m not very close to, so they don’t really know my style or taste and I just end up never wearing them.

Do you have an ‘it’ fashion item that you are planning to wear for this year’s holidays?

Yes, indeed. A white furry coat by Topshop I’m so obsessed with! Oversized furry coats are such a must-have this season.

Which film puts you in the spirit of Christmas?

“The Nightmare Before Christmas.” I know it’s a bit creepy but I used to love it as a kid.

What is the one thing that you can’t have enough of during Christmas? On the contrary, what is the one thing that you absolutely can’t stand anymore?

I think Christmas is such a good occasion indulge my sweet tooth; eating all sorts of candies or holiday desserts is just the nicest thing that could happen during Christmas. On the other hand, I’m really bored with all the Christmas decorations like lights and trees, they’re just always the same every year and unless they have an innovative design, I don’t really get impressed anymore.

Dolce & Gabbana were the designers behind the famous Claridge’s Christmas tree in London. Who would you choose to design it and why?

Maison Martin Margiela. We need a Christmas tree that is not so Christmassy for once, but that’s more a piece of art and they’d be perfect for that.

What type of Christmas tree would you be?

All white and clear, made out of glass with milky white lights.
