Leather Fever 🌟

A leather skirt is an unconventional piece that can be in your wardrobe for decades. The heavy fabric is most known for being used as a biker jacket. Famous singers like Madonna and Lady Gaga set style trends with this fabric not only in leather jackets but dresses and bodysuits. One of the greatest influences on leather came from the punk fashion era in the early 1970’s and has evolved to our trends of today.

All The Ruffles💃

Almost every fashion trend is an evolution of a different time period of dressing. Ruffles are no different. During the 1930’s flamenco costumes used ruffles on their dresses because it added to their dancing. Throughout several decades ruffles came and went in various ways. On the runway ruffles can now be spotted at both ends of the spectrum, from minimalist styles to extravagant dresses.

Florals ❁

Floral printed clothing is definitely a summer staple. The floral motif exudes femininity and youthfulness. Many years ago people decided to put flowers on clothing for different types of symbolism. Now, on the runway you can find them printed on long billowy dresses or embellished onto structured jackets.

Off The Shoulder â˜€

Times haven’t changed. The off the shoulder dresses have been mimicked since the early 1800’s. The sleeveless dresses had shoulder straps or ribbons tied over the shoulder. The off the shoulder trend can now be seen in both romantic dresses and flowy tops, often paired with boyfriend jeans.

PJ’s for Day â€

Pyjamas are one of the comfiest forms of dressing. The word pyjama originally comes from Persian origin meaning leg clothing. Their introduction into fashion began several centuries ago when women started wearing pyjama style pants. Eventually sleepwear and everyday style began to mix together as clothing became more informal. Now back on the runway are matching pyjama sets and stand alone pieces.

The Look: 70’s âœż

The seventies flair of corduroy has returned once again. In comparison to the original fabric, corduroy has evolved with finer ridges. It is a soft and wearable fabric that can be formulated into many styles. Since the fabric is so lightweight it can be worn throughout all seasons. The look can be worn in a feminine way or more structured like a suit.
