Trendlet: coifs come back

With a grey tonality not uncommon in Spring 2010 collections, and fitting cohesively with the sports fashion trend, the coif (the soft, fitted head piece in the picture below) is again capturing the imagination of the fashion forwards.

Trendspiration: Burberry’s shearling

More trendspiration for your Fall 2010 wardrobe (yes, I know it’s sometime off – but this jacket is simply too hot not to want right now), this time focused on the evolution of the women’s military fashion trend and its fusion with aviation chic.

Style inspiration: layer up on rings

Want some inspiration for how to make layerings of rings look great, without going completely over the top? Right now we’re loving the look of hippy, 70s inspired mood rings and cabochons. Think Abbey Lee Kershaw (one of our favourite models, who’s rarely seen without them) and you’re on the right track. Rather than punky skulls and knuckeldusters or the overly blingy sparkly cocktail rings,…

Feather headband trend: Flights of Fancy

I love feathers. It’s their natural beauty; the compendium of a multitude of hues brought together in vibrant patterns governed by nature… all for attracting a mate. Just think about the grace and style of the peacock and you will see what I mean. Well, the feather trend has been creeping up on catwalks since A/W 08-09, and I think its about time we all…

Laddered stockings / ripped tights fashion trend

The most defining trend of the 1990s was undoubtedly grunge. And since the 80s revival has reached its peak and is on the steady decline, it’s the 90s that are next in turn – grunge naturally included. This neo-grunge takes the ripped denim trend firmly in its stride; and along with it comes another 2009 and 2010 fashion trend: laddered stockings. Alexander Wang Autumn (Fall)/Winter…
