Channel your inner '90s with the re-rise of the dungaree overall trend. This look is back and better than when were watching it on Saved By The Bell. Every retailer is filling up their "New Arrivals" with a variation of dungaree styles. From denim, to floral, to stripes, to lace, shorts to wide-leg to skinny leg—you name it. Dungarees are everywhere! Overalls do not always mean denim though. We have spotted numerous silk, lace, and leather amongst the tailored pairs on our favorite online shops as well!
It's the trend everyone loves to hate.
It was certainly unexpected when models stepped out in petite sized heels on the Spring runways. For many of us women complaining about the pain of a stiletto, complain no more because kitten heels are back and they are taking over every retailer.
A stylish heel generally no more than two inches, sounds like shoe heaven to us ladies. The perks of a petite heel is it can be worn longer and give us enough height for a stylish lift. Rather than a flat, legs will be elongated and best of all we are pain free!
Men’s footwear, like menswear itself, is vastly changing. As the men of today become more daring in their style of dress, so do what they decide to put on their feet. This new found freedom has paved the way for new and innovative styles and trends to hit the runway and reach the consumer. And that’s exactly what’s happening this spring.
You can always rely on shoes, be it men’s or women’s, to take an outfit to the next level. This happens through variety of shapes and sizes and fabric and color. This season features materials like leathers and suede, as well as metallic and printed fabrics.
Spring has sprung into action, and so have all your favorite designers of menswear. For years now, fashion for men has been developing from more than just suits and slacks, into daring pieces that play with silhouettes, experiment with color, and give innovation to the consumer. This year is no different. Three key trends men should be ripping from the runway this spring are Prints & Patterns, Fit &Tailoring, as well as Color.
Prints & Patterns are great for the budding businessman and the more classic male who doesn’t want to get to out there with his wardrobe, but still wants to stay current. This season the runways were a blaze with prints from designers like Vivienne Westwood, and Sarah Burton who awed with a bronze combination gold and silver metallic blazer with matching trousers for Alexander McQueen (see left). The bolder male “fashionistas” can go to the extreme, while the further subdued can opt for more subtle approaches like Viktor & Rolph’s zigzag patterned black and silver suit also featuring a metallic finish (see slideshow).
Clashing prints, maxis, cropped tops, John Lennon sunnies, wide brim hats, and cross-body bags in the sun can only mean one thing! Hello Festival Season! The festival that started it all was Woodstock of '69 but now you can find a music festival no matter what part of the world you reside in. Almost every leading retailer has a festival fashion segment on their homepages and high fashion designers such as Dsquared have created a collection inspired by festival fashion. It is time to channel your down-to-earth, inner hippie, and frolic around the grass fields to your favorite music.
Spring dos are all about being natural, easy, and very organic.A hair out of place is totally acceptable. We are not looking for perfection on the head in fact, undone hair is what it is all about!
We are going to give you a round up of our top favorite hair looks!
Lowdown on Low Ponies: The low ponytail is a favorite among Spring hair looks. It comes in a variety of styles from sleek and neat to messy. What you have to remember is to keep the pony super low. Leave a few strands of hair to flow naturally in their place and keep the pony loose around the ears. The new low pony also looks super vogue by tying in hair extensions to elongate the look. A wispy low pony can be worn anywhere, at anytime, and is super easy to accomplish. This look has more than conquered the runway !
Reining it in from past seasons of embellished brights and quirky colors, ready-to-wear is taking back black and white is tagging along for the ride. Jil Sander and Narciso Rodriguez class it up, while other top designers like Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang move toward the edgier side of the contrasting colors.
