Welcome to my new post where I wax lyrical about all the crazy, wonderful and foul trends that are out and about this year. First cab off the rank -
Boys in 3/4 jeans: I've been seeing it everywhere lately, boys rolling up their skinny leg jeans just a tad. I have no idea why but I like it. I think it caters for my Indie Rocker/ lead singer fetish. Yum.
Jumpsuits: I have paid jumpsuits out for quite a while, but a certain gorgeous, fashion editor was rocking one at work last Friday and she had me eating my words. She looked a million bucks. Her wise words of wisdom when it comes to working the j-suit: stick to silky fabrics and dark shades. Thank you Miss Parr.
Trackie Pants WITH HEELS: Excuse me while I spew into a bucket! No way hozay! I don't care how many fashion mags try and plug this, I refuse to jump on the bandwagon*. Remember, beautiful people can make anything look great but trackies are not for the office, dance floor, or any kind of day wear (except the park, supermarket etc).
Shoulder pads: Love, love, LOVE. The bigger the better, instant shape and sass. Can't get enough of some shoulder pad action.
Hawaiian shirts ala Leo-De-Cap in Romeo and Juliet: The lead singer of The Friendly Fires at Splendour '09 dug this trend out of the 90's cupboard and since then copy cats have mimicked Ed MacFarlane's retro look. I am a sucker for the Hawaiian shirt, so thanks Mr Mac for bringing them back.
Thoughts/feelings? Do you love/hate any of these trends? Would you wear trackies and heels? Are you like me and pay out a trend for a few weeks and eventually cave? Mark my words, *I am fickle when it comes to fashion. I'm sure you'll catch me in trackies and heels one day.
