Instead of hopping on board with fashion trends once they've been spotted on every street corner in America, why not get a head start?
Every year there are new fads, and come December, most ladies have invested in them in some form or other. Thankfully, fashion reporter Allison McNamara has laid out the trends that she predicts will be big in 2013 so we can be the first of our friends to test them out.
Say bye-bye to oxblood as emerald green is going to be the hot color this year. Fashionistas like Emma Stone and Kate Middleton have already given the shade their stamp of approval. And there is good news for your feet: Pointy toe shoes with ankle straps are in, but with a lower heel.
So, what's going to be the peplum of 2013? Watch the video above to find out the fashion trends that are going to be major this year.
