New York’s Fashion Snoops is a well-known global trend research company for the fashion industry, who’s goal is to make their forecasts both inspiring and actionable. Below you’ll find their take on the 5 most promising upcoming trend themes in women’s fashion for Spring Summer 2013.

The defining decade here is the 20’s; featuring flapper looks with dropped waists, glitzy embellishment, deco patterns, plunge necklines, fringe and slip dresses.

Part bohemia and part rebel. Expect flowing maxi skirts and dresses, patchwork vests, cut off jean shorts, one shoulder silhouettes, vintage US flag graphics and fringe details.

Brilliant botanicals in bloom abound! Look for romanic floral prints on all key wardrobe essentials, including outrageously patterned pants. Make a wild bouquet by mixing pieces together.

Olympic fever strikes and athletic influences abound. Red, white and blue score big, along with preppy stripes, jersey numbers, pieced construction and color blocking.

Lush, tropical florals in saturated hues engulf everything from maxi dresses to jumpsuits. Beach silhouettes like halter and sarong, as well as asymmetrical hemlines are key.
