It is past due that I do a post on London’s style! I have mentioned its beauty numerous times, but I have not yet painted a detailed picture for you.
Upon my arrival these were the main things that I noticed about womenswear:
Black down jackets with fur hoods/fur collars
Opaque black tights & leggings (ankle length)
Short dresses/Long fitted-knit T-shirts
Black & brown leather boots
Lace-up mid-calf boots
Sparkles are seen roaming the streets, but it is obvious the trend is dwindling. Sequins and Sparkles line the sales racks of stores, making room for the new trends of 2010.
Here is an exciting little tid-bit: 80’s fashions are heading out the door, while designers find inspiration from the 90’s (the decade’s 1st comeback!). Shoulder pads will still be used at a minimum. Like the 90’s this season’s silhouettes will be less structured, adopting the mind-set that “less is more”.
Let’s do a little reminiscing of 1990’s fashions…
Belly Button Rings
Leather (AND “pleather”...)
Take a little trip down memory lane with BBC’s “I Love the 90’s” and find something old to be made new.
