The dynamic nature of the fashion world is not lost on anybody. In the blink of an eye, a “hot” trend becomes a fashion outcast. The crop tops, the neon, the daring slits adorned on almost everything of today, will eventually fall out of fashion, replaced by new or most of the times, reproduced bygone era trends. Every season, the Fashion Weeks with their competitive designers, showcase newer designs and trends that we follow as instructed.
But there are some, that survive through the test of time, the time after all the hype created has died down collectively. These trends may seem to be dormant, but we use them in our everyday styles. Trends such as:
Undoubtedly, we saw a lot of florals on the runway this season, strikingly in Marchesa‘s designs. But florals have always been there. An embodiment of spring, with its pretty flowers and earthy hues, this natural, blooming affair perseveres.
Again, a design that had a stint at the Spring/Summer ’15 Fashion Week, but had never really left our wardrobe. Gingham is one of those cute, geometrical designs (the other being polka) that will forever be associated with an airy and light-hearted look. The iconic blue, gingham dress that Judy Garland wore in the 1939 classic “The Wizard of Oz” as Dorothy, remains the nostalgic inspiration.
Fringes reminds us of the wild west cowboys, the cinematically romanticized characters that symbolized freedom and adventures. This bohemian quality associated with the trend is loved by everyone, and can still be noticed in fashion, from the extravagant to regular old stuff like scarves. Because hippies may not be around, like during the 60’s, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any now.
An evergreen motif, polka dot was one of the strongest trends this season on the runway as well as on the red carpet, with Dolce & Gabbana’s Spanish-influenced polka and carnations designs. And we have actually never heard anyone say that polka dots are ugly.
Some say Zebra, I say nautical. Striped designs, especially on tops for men and women alike, is a testament to its never-go-out-of-style nature. And something about its clean cut, straight shape that evokes memories of the sea, is pleasing to the eyes.
Denim is, like, the greatest clothing invention of the last century. Whenever there is a fashion police news on denim, it’s never ” should we wear it still? ” but always,” how should we wear it?”. With major label, Levi’s sales increasing year after year, we know this trend will stay on.
The military green and its camouflage design may not seem like a “hot” trend but it endures. To pair it with something feminine or just to wear a trend that is different and cool, but not over-displayed by everyone.
Do you agree?
