New Trends of Fall/Winter 2010 Collections: Flowers!

In styles and trends on November 8, 2010 at 11:20 am

Flowers adorn even the most beautiful wintry dresses, but this time the shades are dark and dusky to match the colours of the season. Think flowers are on vogue just in spring? Think again. Many fall winter collections have patterns, embroideries and details that recall those elements of nature in different shapes. My pick of the best, displayed below, are dresses from the Etro and Giorgio Armani collection which show off those romantic details. Flowers became also huge details on accessories like the Valentino bag on the left and the Valentino shoes. Get the flower mood with some highly embellished item!


Lingerie Trend

Embroideries and lace details coming through the warm wintry items, maybe made of soft wool, are the last idea of femininity proposed by the most stylish fashion houses for the fall/winter 2010/11 collections. Black lace appears from the bottom of midi skirts just like petticoats did in the 50’s and the same happens on near the neckline of beautiful velvet or wool dresses, as seen at the last fall/winter Dolce &Gabbana fashion show.

Attempting this style is quite easy as there are many lace items in shops at the moment, that bring lingerie to mind. You can just mix and match them with plain dark skirts or add them to a minimal look. This trend is just the latest way of showing off the femininity in a new delicate key that comes directly from our grandmas’ closets.

Safari Chic

As seen on the catwalks of the upcoming summery collections, the Safari chic is going to be the leading trend of the next season. Tailored shirts, structured shorts and high waist skirts will be the must have of a trend that comes and goes over the years. Anyway the items for the next summer will be made of luxurious fabrics mixed with printed leather accessories like large comfy bags and high waist belts. Colours will be, of course, all the tones of the sand with a bit of ochre and brown. White is also allowed for a most chic outfit. Cargo pants will be also a stylish option to be matched with a linen beige blazer. Below some inspirations from the Gucci spring/summer 2010/11 collection.

Get ready for the urban jungle, get the look!

Leather Jacket

Leather jacket is an item that has never gone out of fashion, this winter has been offered again in many designer collections as a classic must have that is essential for a wintry outfit. It can be used for a vintage inspired or rock chic look giving a glamorous touch to every outfits. This season there is a great choice of diverse cuts from traditional biker leather jacket to fur lined leather coats. Black is a safe option because can be combined with any other colours while a brown version would be a more sophisticated choice. For the upcoming season, leather is not just employed for jackets and coats, but is widely used for dresses, shorts and skirts. Choose your own style for the chilly days.

Fashion colours

  As I could notice from the fall/winter collections previews and from the urban street style the main trend of the next season is a smart use of colours. Combine colours in outfits is not an easy think for everyone and sometimes tips can be useful even for the most fashion conscious. Have a look to those outfits chosen for the fall winter season and find you inspiration for your own look. As seen from many new collections dark colours are mixed with vivid colours like orange, yellow or red. This is the key of a smashing look, just try to match black or grey with ochre or yellow to get a look from the catwalk.

50’s Inspirations

In styles and trends on June 18, 2010 at 10:47 am

Ready for the summer of 2010? Past continues to inspire the future as we can see from the latest creations such as dresses. Fifties style is probably the most iconic of fashion, making us think about Marilin Monroe, Grace Kelly and Christian Dior.

Many fashion houses like Alberta Ferretti, John Richmond and D&G have looked back to the 50’s for fashion inspiration to this day.

50’s comeback influences the spring summer 2010 collections as it did plenty of times over the years. Incorporate your style with classical fashion of 1950’s mixing and matching it with polka dot items, straight leg Capri pants or maybe a white shirt tied in front.

Boyfriend blazer

In styles and trends on June 16, 2010 at 10:09 am

 May I suggest a boyfriend blazer? The name of this model means you borrow the blazer from your boyfriend, as the cut seems to be a size more than yours. Anyway the most part of the brand new blazers are in step with this trend with larger and longer models than usual for a more glamorous style. So you don’t have to borrow one or get a second hand, you can get your own brand new from the top fashion houses. 

For example, here there are two blazers from the 2010 spring summer collections, the Gucci blazer and Alberta Ferretti blazer.

  Try to roll or push up your sleeves exposing your wrist and make the look more feminine.
