I was recently going through my wallet when I noticed a folded yellow piece of paper. I opened it to find what "I" thought would be the fashion trends for 2011. You can snicker or shoot the bird when you hear this, but I have thought since I was younger I had thought I had innate ability to predict what was going to be the hot new trends. It was not until I got to F.I.T that I realized this "E.S.P" was actually called fashion forecasting and people got paid to do this. Anyway, there are a few things that I feel personally responsible for bringing to the forefront, but I am going to keep this to myself- maybe and just read off my list what I thought would be the "it" items for the year of 2011. I think some will peep their head into 2012
|colored eye liner, get your colored eye liner!!!|
Big Grecian Jewelry- my bestie and roommate from when I lived in New York, Kate, had this gorgeous necklace and I keep thinking I will have one one day too, but I thought this would certainly inspire you.
|Big Grecian Jewelry People|
|a bracelet like Kate's necklace...these things are pricey. $3400|
Nineties colors and textures: hunter green, burgundy, flowers, and layered dresses.
|layered and nineties colors|
Dressed up men's clothes with a feminine twist ie. trousers, blouses, androgynous hats
|Ralph you nail androgyny and make me want to nail it to.|
Idea to revamp #1.Old jean jackets- bleach spot them or bleach them. Cut out arms or leave them depending on whether you want a vest or jacket. Get RIT dye and make it a color!
|perfect jacket for tainting|
Fancy dresses with boots. Think gowns with riding boots. But add a braided belt for fun and maybe your new bubblegum pink jean vest!
|A fancy Ralph Lauren Dress...now get a concha belt and some boots- mud is OK and a your cute pink jeannie jacket-VOILA|
wearing colors from your country.
|Blumarine had Jamaican country pride, now let's see if everyone else follows suit.|
|Jamaican model in the color of 2011. Via my prediction.|
High waisted long skirts
|J.Crew- you have nailed one of my looks and the high waisted sequined skirt, you are just perfect.|
|Peaches in a black high waisted skirt! Love it.|
|birds of a feather|
|Cloggin' through life!|
Monochromatic color palettes from head to toe.
|That's right throw all of one color on...|
So this was my list...I have tons of things to add and predict for 2012. Since I think I am ahead of the trend let's see if any of these things become more true for this year. I think we will see lots of animals. I don't mean leopards either. I mean dogs, birds, whales, and kitty cats. In the mean time I am going to make a bubble gum pink jean vest to wear with a long evening dress I have by Ghost. I will post pictures-trust.
ps. grey men's New Balance...I tipped that trend in 97'
