Uh oh. New York Fashion Week is next week and I know at least one blogger, Michelle from All Lacquered Up will be there checking on nail polish trends, but I thought I'd take my own stab at some fashion predictions for 2010.
Although I can't exactly rock the couture looks of Marc Jacobs or Zak Posen, we here in Cleveland make do with our unique fashion sense, no matter what type of weather Cleveland brings us. (The key is no matter what kind of weather because we see it all. And, I've been known to wear open-toed shoes with fee of snow on the ground. Fashion over function, people.)
Fashion: to be hot or to be not
Back in January, I received a pitch about Babette Epaulette's shoulder jewelry. I read it out loud and thought "Shoulder jewelry? WTF?" Here are few examples of how it in real life.
Hot: Depending on where the hell you are and IF you are Lady Gaga.
Shredded tie dye jeans
Love 'em or hate 'em ripped jeans are back with a vengeance. I've seen them on a few celebrities last fall and I wasn't in love them. It was a similar feeling I felt wayyy back in the day of skinny jeans when I swore I would never get my calves into a pair that small. Well, I have and I continually wear them all the time, but a favorite pair of mine aren't that skinny but rather real straight from the Gap.
Tepid: I'm still undecided with this one.
Although this isn't necessarily new, I like that we are seeing more fabrics and colors available to us. I still have a pair of Hue leather metallic leggings and haven't jumped on the "jegging" trend just yet. Although, you can snag yourself a pair by Joe's Jeans dark leggings for $78. I'm on board with texture and muted colors like grey, navy and even chocolate brown. However, you won't see a pair of hot pink or purple leggings on these calves any time soon.
Boiling hot: Dress up or down any outfit, depending on the fabric.
As far as shoes go, I think I'll wait until Lucky's shoe issue comes out but for now, I'm loving all these styles I found on their site:
The platform - Rebecca Taylor, $325 (no one said they have to be affordable) I have been wanting a pair for last few months but can't find the perfect fit.
The bejeweled flat - Vera Wang Lavender Label, $295
I love the fact that I can be 27 and still wear jewels on my shoes. Just like jelly shoes but without the uncomfortable straps.
Knee-high boot - Colin Stuart, $158
I have wide calves and the over-the-knee doesn't work if I can't get it over-the-calf first.
There are some of my predictions for this coming spring and beyond. What about you? What trend do you love or love to hate? What won't you be wearing this season?
