Destroyed denim is so on trend right now, you’d be hard pressed to find a denim brand that doesn’t have it in their collection. From small slits to giant slashes, the possibilities are endless and the options overwhelming. So I’ve narrowed down the playing field a little bit, and included my top 5 winter friendly picks, to make navigating through the sea of destroyed denim a little easier!
One trend that I observed on the SS15 runways, that can easily be reinterpreted for fall/winter, is embellishment. Key designers and design houses, like Ashish and Dolce & Gabbana were all about this trend, and it’s no wonder! I love that a great embellished piece can Continue reading
Asymmetry took many different shapes and forms on the SS15 runways. In fact, this is a trend that’s only continued to gain momentum in recent seasons, often manifesting itself in the form of skirts and dresses. I associate this tendency towards the asymmetric with the evolution of the high-low, which has been done six ways to Sunday in seasons past. But when it comes to this trend, one thing is for sure: incorporating some asymmetry into your fall wardrobe is an easy way to modernize your look without having to sacrifice your own personal style!
Midi was THE length of the SS15 runway season, cropping up in endless shapes, colors, and fabrications. From bodycon to bell, and skirts to dresses, perhaps fashionistas and fashion houses alike have taken to this length because Continue reading
As much as I hate summer coming to an end (it’s the little Canadian voice inside my head gravely reminding me that winter is coming) there’s one aspect of fall that I can’t help but look forward to each year: Continue reading
Designers across the board, from Gucci to KTZ to Clover Canyon, were incorporating kimonos and kimono styling into their SS15 runway collections. This fits really well into the big picture of what is going on in fashion right now – after all, the kimono is basically just a more feminine, boho version of the duster jacket, which has also seen a rise in popularity on the streets and runways this season. And the kimono sleeve is all part of a general shift towards wider/looser silhouettes that has been seen in multiple categories, including tops (and bottoms). Well, there’s no need to wait until spring to start rocking this trend; because the kimono is essentially a long sweater, it can easily be incorporated into fall wardrobes as well… Come back tomorrow and you’ll see what I mean! As for kimono styling? You don’t have to get too literal – wide sleeves and/or belting will do the trick.
I’ve already discussed my love affair with flares here: http://justjilli.com/2014/08/19/flare-wear-2/ and here: http://justjilli.com/2014/08/18/flare-wear/, but after all the confirmation this trend received on the SS15 runways, I figured it couldn’t hurt to feature them again. Flares just feel like the next big silhouette. With skinnies having been around for endless seasons, and wider silhouettes entering the picture, flares are the perfect segue.
Being the devoted trend forecaster that I am, I’ve spent the last month closely watching fashion weeks in NYC, London, Milan, and Paris. (Oh how I love my job!) Well, I’m excited to finally release my first (of many) reports featuring trends from SS15.
This season, feathers were all over the runway. From Alexander McQueen to Prabal Gurung to Burberry Prorsum, you know you’ve entered trend territory when Continue reading
When I started noticing that many of my favorite brands (Stone Cold Fox, SPELL, and For Love and Lemons) had awesome pieces incorporating uneven hems in their fall collections, I just knew I had to feature this trend on the blog! Uneven/scalloped hems are a fun way to Continue reading
As a professional trend forecaster and designer, my relationship with fashion trends can be summed up in two strong words: love-hate. You see, it feels great to be on-trend, but the pesky little thing about trends is Continue reading
