If only we had a crystal ball that could tell us when fashion trends would come in and out of date, we could plan our wardrobes and know what to start buying.
There is nothing worse than going out and filling your wardrobe with a particular trend only to find that three months later it has disappeared forever.
Many people feel nervous about wearing a red pair of trousers, but according to InStyle Magazine red trousers are all the rage in Hollywood right now. Teamed with white for a relaxed feel or polished to perfection with a splash of black, red trousers can look hot in more ways than one.
Rachel Bilson recently showed off how to do the look, teaming a pair of straight-leg red pants with a floral print blouse. The waistline of the pants sat just above the hips, giving an elongated look to her naturally short legs.
As much as we talk about the latest trends and fads, at the base of every standout look is individual style. Regardless of the season’s colours, lengths, fits and prints, knowing what suits and what doesn’t is the key to putting together a great outfit.
That being said, taking inspiration from what the celebrities are wearing can do no harm and might put you on the right track to finding your own unique fashion style.
In the world of fashion, different trends have a way of sneaking back after time. This season, a trend that is making a big comeback is leopard print. So far we’ve seen a number of designers using leopard print in their latest designs including DKNY, Diane von Furstenberg and Giambattista Valli.
However, this time around it has a cool, modern twist.
Diane Keaton did it, Patti Smith mastered it and this season’s trends have many women wanting to do it. We’re talking borrowing from the boys – men’s fashion that looks great on women.
Vogue takes a look at some of this seasons trends for men that women can pull off too:
Menswear cuts offer a certain boxy shape that womenswear departments are yet to offer. The crop leather jacket is on trend for women this year but the men’s elongated length can be flattering.
While denim has been around for a long time, this year the fashion staple is back with a vengeance. The denim jacket is timeless and an absolute essential for every wardrobe as every few years it re-emerges as the ‘must-have’ item. This year, it’s the necessary item for summer.
The denim jacket is one of those fashion items that can be worn with just about anything. Even so, here are a few things to bear in mind when shopping for a jacket:
Runner shorts, which were once reserved for the gym or jogging dates, are now being worn as everyday items, especially by those proud of their shapely legs.
Gone are the days when plunging necklines were the best way to show off a bit of flesh, with today’s trend focusing more on the midriff.
According to InStyle Magazine, an exposed midriff is the latest trend to hit the red carpet, but the key is restraint – just a little flash of flesh across the ribcage.
Join celebrities in the quest for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer awareness. Upload a selfie today with the hashtag #brightpinklipstickday
Bright Pink Lipstick Day – The Facts:
In Australia, it’s believed that nearly a quarter of a million men and women carry a hereditary gene that put them at increased risk of breast, ovarian, prostate and other cancers. In 2007, Access Economics data revealed that one young high risk woman (under 65, if diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancer) can cost the affected individual, their family and the healthcare system up to $1.75 million in their life-time. If you look at the estimated figures of 1000 young women at risk, the estimated cost of treating them in their lifetime would be over $1.5 billion! And that is only the physical cost; the emotional cost to these families who are affected year after year and generation after generation is enormous.
The government spends billions on cancer patients once they are diagnosed; all we want is an investment into prevention and education. We need to make it easier on families taking preventative action through genetic testing and surgery. There should be no out of pocket costs if we are saving money in the long term.”
Since Hollywood star Angelina Jolie’s decision to have a preventative double mastectomy, her voice and profile has brought much needed attention to the harsh reality of hereditary cancer – and her action to go public has meant that Pink Hope has experienced over a 700 per cent increase in families reaching out, and as a result is in desperate need of additional funding.
Pink Hope’s founder, Krystal Barter, was only 22 years old when she discovered she had the BRCA1 gene fault that gave her an 85 per cent chance of developing breast cancer and up to 65 per cent of ovarian cancer. Krystal says, “Whilst in hospital recovering, I found there really wasn’t anywhere for me to go for support or information, so I formed Pink Hope to help other families in a similar situation to my own.”
