Spring 2013 Trends: Rise of the Ottoman Empire

If last year's global inspiration came from Southeast Asia, we're traveling a little west and back in time. Rich textures, floral motifs, metallic embellishments and appliques, and structured silhouettes lend to a look that's reminiscent of the early Ottoman Empire sultans.

Channel ancient nobility with an Ottoman-inspired gown a la Rodarte or wear the trend in the daytime by picking one accent piece and pairing it with muted solids.

Still not sure what to look for? Shop silks, satins, embroidery, tassels, fringe, batik prints, or anything with gold embellishment.
