Five Unexpected Trends To Try This Year
It can be difficult to keep up with so many new designs and trends that continue to grace the catwalk each season, which is why it is easier to follow only a selected few of your favourite fashion trends. Try these five catwalk trends over the coming months.
Khaki has been appearing on the catwalk in many different styles from a wide range of respected fashion houses which is why it is a must-have this season. Khaki jackets, hats, skirts, dresses and trousers are all trending and will be very popular in 2015.
You could take a more classic approach to the khaki look by going for a safari-style appeal as seen by Ralph Lauren’s latest collection to hit the runway. Marc Jacobs, on the other hand, went for a more military based statement. Whichever you choose, a perfect accessory for this type of look is a stylish watch from TicWatches that will pull the outfit together and make it shine that much brighter.
A very popular fabric on the runway this year is classic suede. The entire 70’s vibe is back in full power as retro coats and suede dresses have come back into fashion. You won’t be able to avoid the theme this year as more and more alterations show up on both the high street and from the major fashion houses. If you are worried about what color palette to go for then stick to the trending chalky shades of suede which include chalky blue, green and pink.
Louis Vuitton recently sported their romantic line of crisp white laced dresses on the catwalk that were all intricately designed with a beautiful amount of detail. This look can be achieved by anyone (from any budget) as there are hundreds of styles available across a wide range of stores. According to Vogue, the trending whites for 2015, ‘reflect a pick and mix of influences, from Victoriana to virginal Confirmation dressing,’ but the most important factor is the fine craftsmanship which consists of delicate cutwork and fine lace that ‘elevate these designs from pretty to infinitely precious.’
The martial arts inspired kimono range seen so often on the catwalk this year is proving to be just as powerful and fierce as a jujitsu master. This type of style reflects the art of karate and other martial arts by providing inspiration for a line of long silhouette figures that are clenched in at the waist to accentuate it and give that desirable hourglass shape. One of the most beautiful designs that powered down the runway was Celine’s black kimono style silhouette that featured a gorgeous blue belt and exposed seams. If you are looking for a look different from all the rest, and with an extra touch of passion, then the kimono inspired range is definitely the trend for you.
Fashion really is taking it all the way back to the 70’s as seen with the suede trend. Another style inspired from this decade is the hippy-chic look that has taken on a more elegant and graceful approach with long flowing dresses that are both colourful and loose fitting. According to Huffington Post ‘the luxury bohemian trend, inspired by Talitha Getty’s iconic hippy-chic look, took to the runway in powder pink silhouettes for Alberta Ferretti, kaleidoscope motifs at Etro while Claire Waight Keller toyed with lace and pleat effects at Chloé,’. There are a wide range of alternative styles and looks to choose from in 2015.
