Runway Report: Ankle Socks

Trends come and go. Some trends stay gone forever, while others are reinvented in a way that is going to work the modern stylings of present day. One trend that is a prime example of this, especially for the season, is ankle socks. This is a trend that many of us probably did not think would make it’s way back onto runways, but it most definitely has and in full force. As much as it may seem like a fashion “faux-pas” (stay tuned for a post about that later this week), it can definitely work when done in the correct way. For now, check out how designers such as Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar de la Renta brought ankle socks to the runway.

Runway Report: Graphic Florals

One of the hottest trends on the runway this season was prints. From polka dots to animal prints, designers did not shy away. This week we’re going to focus on “Graphic Florals” on the runway. When worn right, this trend is definitely a head-turner. Whether you want to wear the print on your pants, top or jacket, making it the focal point of your outfit is definitely going to make your outfit stand out amongst the crowd. Designers such as Cynthia Rowley, Diane von Furstenberg and Prabal Gurung definitely showcased this hot trend within their collections this season. Check out below for some amazing floral prints.

Runway Report: Athletic Chic

Summer is a time of ease and relaxation. We like to look at summer as a time where we can just relax and enjoy the sunshine. To help feel this way, we look to our wardrobe to help us express these feelings throughout the season. This season, designers have brought out a casual but chic sense of style with some athletic influence, giving us: Athletic Chic. This trend is great for day to day wear, giving us the option of being comfortable yet looking good and chic as well. Designers such as Alexander Wang, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Nicole Miller have adopted this style in their collections for the Spring/Summer 2012 season. Check out below for some of the Athletic Chic styles from these designers.

Neon on the Runway

Fashionistas are always looking to take risks and push the envelope. What separates the fashion trendsetters from the fashion victims is finding a way to push the envelope in a way that is suitable to that person’s aesthetic. While doing so, we try to keep in mind with that is on trend. One way to stand out amongst the crowd this season is with Neon colours. Of course, neon can be a bit visually shocking (I mean hey, they are the signature hue for highlighters everywhere), so finding the best way to wear it for you is essential. Whether it be by toning the neon down with darker colours or putting the neon focus on accessories is entirely up to you. Check out how designers such as Jason Wu, Nanette Lepore, Peter Som, and others have incorporated neon into their collections this season.

Trend of the Week: Collared Shirts

While the collared shirt is more of a classic than anything, how it always seems to adapt itself into the current trends’ aesthetic makes this key piece a fashion marvel. Having gone to a school with a uniform, the trend then was to roll up the sleeves and have the top button(s) undone - making the shirt look as casual as possible.

Britney Spears was probably the inspiration that caused us to go to such, as my mother would call “sloppy,” lengths. Anyone with buttoned-up cuffs or collar was considered, well, a ‘nerd’ or social pariah. Paired with a uniform skirt to the knee, or GASP past the knee, the person in question was either a tad odd or hadn’t yet learned the ropes.

Now, fast forward to the workplace, the collared shirt is a key way to show the world that you’re a) professional and b) know what you’re talking about.

The current iteration of the collared shirt is buttoned-up the whole way (maybe those so-called “nerds” knew what they were doing). Collars are definitely a big focus for designers and in most of the Fall 2021 RTW shows there was nary a collarbone in sight.

We can even look forward to the collared shirt trend come fall.

DIY Lace Pocket Shorts!
This lovely springtime weather here in New York means the return of shorts to my wardrobe! I’ve chosen my favorite pair of coral high-waisted shorts to decorate. Lace is a wardrobe essential for me, and I wanted to bring a little bit of that into my favorite pair of shorts.

Roses on the Runway

As this dreary winter weather subsides we move into the bright and blooming spring and summer seasons. In the likes of that, we begin to think about our wardrobes for spring and summer and how we are going to make it work. Don’t fret because we are here to help you and your wardrobe blossom into all of its glory. Speaking of blossoming, this season on the runway designers did not shy away from bold floral prints, textures, and silhouettes. More specifically: ROSES. Designers used the inspiration of this flower and created beautiful pieces on their runways. Check out how designers such as Badgley Mischka, Betsey Johnson, Lela Rose and other used roses on the runway.

Going through the Pantone Spring 2012 fashion colour trends and I just can’t get enough of this margarita green colour. There’s so many things perfect about this top: the big, big lace and the peter pan collar really tops it off, don’t you think?
