The Victorian Revival

2020 February 14

This spring, fashion references eras of long ago with the revival of Victorian style. Big houses like Alexander McQueen, Burberry and Marc Jacobs drew inspiration from both the Edwardian and Victorian periods for their latest spring/summer collections. From voluminous leg o mutton sleeves to high neck collars and accentuated waists, the flare from the late 1800s and early 1900s can be spotted on dresses and blouses made modern with other updates. See below for our favorite looks.

Fluff your Ruffles

Ruffles were one of the most incorporated trims used in styles shown on runways for spring/ summer: designers like Christopher Kane, Erdem and MSGM made use of the expressive volume-adders, giving a playful and chic charm to their designs. From asymmetrical hems to necklines, there seem to be no rules on the placement or amount of ruffles that can enhance a garment, as long as they make a fashion statement. Below are some of our favorite looks using the trend.

The Peplum returns!

2020 January 31

From casual street styles to fancier evening wear, peplum hems in all sorts of incarnations are back for the spring/summer season. Designers like Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, and Michael Kors incorporated the peplum silhouette into their newest runway creations. From soft and flowy to structured and pleated, peplums can be a classy component on a skirt, blouse or fitted blazer. The overskirt flatters every shape by accentuating the nipped waist and curvaceous lines of the mid-body. See below our favorite peplum designs from runways below.

Chained Waist

Chain belts are having a notable comeback after being popularized in the 90s by Chanel, when top models strutted the catwalk with gold multi chains hanging from their hips. This time around there are innumerable varieties of chain belts like rhinestone-bedazzled and coin-embellished to 70’s-inspired versions, slinky snake-like styles, and even simple wrap chains with dangling charms. It’s the newest accessory to glam up high-waist jeans, a fitted dress, or to elevate any look to the next level. Here are some of the best chain belts we’ve seen on modern runways.

Mock Croc

2019 December 10

Crocodile continues to be a luxury fashion favorite for handbags and shoes, but with the emergence of new styles in artificial fabrications, along with an increasing awareness of animal rights, the idea is no longer just for the accessory world. Designers such as Versace, Tods, Max Mara and Tibi showed their versions of mock croc garments during Fall/Winter ’19 runway shows to an esteemed reception. The embossed, textured material made to look like crocodile leather is an eye catcher and adds a lavish and exotic touch to every look. From a faux trench to a basic mock croc skirt, there is something for everyone, whether a head-to-toe croc effect or just a touch of the trend is desired. See a variety of mock croc styles for inspiration below.
