1. Public School - The wide-brim hat is on my wish-list for A/W and will still be wearable come SS'13, teamed with a longline blazer and below-the-knee shorts this look is perfect.
2. General Idea - Skateboarding influences are set to be a big trend for SS'13 and the combination of multiple brights in one outfit stands out for me.
3. Joseph Arnoud - Differing shades of bright blues teamed with simple white trainers give a clean rather than overpowering look that shows attention to detail.
4. J. Lindeberg - The contrast of smart and street in this look is genius and a varsity bomber layered over a suit and tee is effortlessly cool. The shades and up-turned lapels are nice finishing touches.
5. Robert Geller - Slouchy suit trousers are one of my key pieces for AW'12 and SS'13 especially when teamed with a casual shirt and trilby. The smart bottom half compliments the casual top half perfectly.
6. Todd Snyder - The short-suit is something we have become used to, however Snyder has updated this look by including jersey shorts and boots worn with thick socks to again contradict the shirt and blazer.
7. Michael Kors - The slick 60's look is a nice addition to SS'13 trends and Kors has colour blocked superbly, using just enough of a highlight colour to avoid the obvious monochrome references.
8. Perry Ellis by Duckie Brown - I love the full oversized effect in this outfit and the grey-on-grey creates an interesting overall look. Not sure about the hat though.
9. Alexandre Plokhov - The blazer and super-relaxed trouser helps to prevent this outfit from being too obviously gothic and keeps it looking modern, but the styling and accessory choices give it a dark twist.
