While parked in the couch, watching the TODAY’S Show on TV, nursing a hangover and a headache from last night’s Birthday and New Year’s Eve celebration, with a cup of coffee, the fashion segment came on. Their fashion “experts” showcased the 2008 Fashion Trends from Season to Season. I grabbed my notebook and pen right away so I could share them all with you. Some I could probably see myself following but one particular trend which is slated for Spring 2008 is going to be tricky to pull off so I will stick with my classic style. Maybe I’ll incorporate some but not all. Ok, here they are…
Embellished Sophistication — combination of feathers and furs
Shine — a subtle take on the metallic look from last year
Spaced Out, Futuristic Look — No need to explain. I don’t think I’ll be sporting it.
Tribal Abstraction – major influence from multi-culture fashion like South Africa and Asia
Silk Road — patterned and print
Maximum Style — Color and Pattern (Colorblock), Patio Comfort
Knitastic — Chunky knits. Always the classic style
40’s Secretary Chic — Classic cuts, tailored skirt, tie-front blouses, silhouettes, all that good stuff :)
There we go. I’m certainly looking forward to how everybody will interpret the Space Out Futuristic trend for Spring. That’s going to be a blast :). Of course Fall is always the best style in my opinion. Summer is pretty much everything goes, yah know. As always, know your style identity, and have fun incorporating the new trends. One more thing, one trend at a time. You can’t wear ’em all at once. That’s All.
I’mma go eat brunch, hopefully cure this headache and will be back later. Well after the Rose Parade perhaps.. :)
