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!
Sexy, Sheer Panels
Celebrities enthusiastically embraced—and pushed the limits of—the sheer-panel trend on the red carpet and it has quickly become an A-list favorite.

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

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.

The Dressed-Up Sweatshirt
A product of the athletic-inspired trend, the dressed-up sweatshirt was immediately embraced by the fun- and comfort-loving fashion set. The piece looks just as cute with skinny jeans as it does with a printed skirt,or…. no pants at all.

Heavy Metal Hardware
Designers embraced the reinvention of rock style with metal-adorned shoes, boots, and sandals. There’s nothing like chains, grommets, and studs of all shapes and sizes to add tough-girl swagger to any outfit.

Black and White
With the return of ’90s minimalism, designers sent a slew of black-and-white contrasting dresses, suits, coats, and leather everything down the spring and fall runways. The trend eventually made its way onto many celebrities—and into our closets.

Shorts became the new dress, skirt, and even suit piece this year. For the most versatility, designers reinterpreted shorts at varying lengths and in bold colors, prints, and textures. Good News: dressy shorts are also on 2014 runways and this trend is sticking around.
