Another year is over, but great fashion is never forgotten. These fashion trends made 2013 very stylish. Here are the best trends of the year and possibly this one too!

The 2013 menswear-inspired craze welcomed feminine interpretations of classic suiting textures and styles, tough but flirty brogues, and the comfy-cozy boyfriend sweater.

besttrends-ringparty-trend

Ring Party!

As a follow-up to the Arm Party, the Ring Party made its mark in 2013. From stacks of mixed metals to statement bands to the boho-cool midi ring—there were so many pieces to either wear alone or pile on.

A shot from Glamour’s behind-the-scenes visit to cult-favorite Brooklyn-based boutiqueCatbird.

BestTrends-all-white-trend

All White, Even After Labor Day

From summery dresses to post-Labor Day monochrome suits to red-carpet-ready gowns, head-to-toe white remained the trend of choice for all seasons this year. And, yes, all white is totally trendy this year also.
