Before very soon the whole autumn/winter fashion thing will start again I sat down to do a bit of summer trend brainstorming, and I figured it's really easy: Just wear red + purple, purple + orange, orange + yellow, yellow + blue, blue + green, green + cyan, cyan + purple, purple + orange + red, red + blue + green… and if this isn't colour intensive enough go for fluorescent. To keep this rainbow happiness in balance there is WHITE. Not beige, not camel, not off-white – no, REAL WHITE. In other words… good, old plain white. And, it must be a recession thing… DIY is a big trend too. Crochet, fringing, knitting or weaving... No matter if you buy it or do-it-yourself, you'll be hip. Lots of 70s/ early 80s influences, which come with loads of satin, sheer and lurexy fabrics (I really, really want a lurex sweater. Nearly bought an Isabel Marant lurex dress in the sales, but when I stepped out of the changing room, just to find myself next to a girl checking herself in the mirror wearing exactly the same dress I couldn't do it. – And yes, she looked much better in the dress than I did).
Personal favourites? ¾ length skirts, flared trousers and maxi skirts worn with t-shirts. I've also totally fallen for the Jil Sander 'plastic bag' look (mine's from Sainsbury's; so much for personal recession decisions). But you won't see me in ruffles, florals or big prints (no fruits, thank you. Animals? Maybe).
What about you? Any favourite looks?
