Fashion designers help to influence your style and in turn they are influenced by each other, which is where the trends come from, including that ridiculous 'this seasons colour', that you should be wearing, a myth created by fashion magazines and corporates to sell more items! Who the hell says I can't wear last seasons colour? It just encourages me to wear it more, at least no-one else will be wearing it! Not to mention what a waste of materials, money & how unsustainable fast fashion is!
Here are a few micro trends that I have personally been influenced by lately, these images have been collected on pinterest and are my own little pot of trends that influence me and my style one way or another. I hope they inspire you too! Consider reworking your current wardrobe, buying less and perhaps making your own clothes? Expect more micro trends very soon up on the No Debutante blog!
Supercute at Lazy Oaf
Stop this super-cuteness Lazy Oaf, I want it all noooooow! Pink ribbons and ruffled sleeves and hems in candy colours?? All in super soft cotton jerseys too, quite possibly the cutest streetwear ever! Lazy Oaf can do no wrong! No Debutante loves Lazy Oaf!
Bright and Beautiful
I love these super bright printed dresses with matching tights from the Jeremy Scott & Tom Ford Fall 2018 collections. I've always had a thing for coloured tights, so this is a very exciting & inspiring look for me! Thigh high dresses, statement hair or headresses and big earrings. what's not to like here? Dayglo leopard print? Yes please!
Eighties styling at Urban Outfitters
The styling of this shoot from Urban Outfitters for AW17 is super exciting. Shell jackets mixed with slip dresses and slouch boots or a long faux fur worn with a sports top, ski-pants (yes! ski-pants are back) and a stiletto heel. This has to be the most fabulously styled retro collection ever! I need to find out my 80s slouch boots and pointed slip ons immediately!
Look into my eyes
There has been a lot of minimal eyeliner inspo happening over the past year, from small dots on your eyelids to artist graphic lines around the eyes, with the geometric memphis trend beginning to filter through into make up styles too. Glitter is still with us as is the strong brow and coloured mascara is slowly creeping back in, applied on the strong brows too. If you are not a statement outfit type of person, perhaps statement make up is for you?
Not just for men
Despite my love of make-up, frilly pink garms, colourful tights and 80s slip ons, I am a slave to being comfortable and often turn to mens fashion for comfortable clothing inspo. The menswear collections are now blurring with womenswear in a welcome blend of androgynous styling. I am not interested in whether an item has been made for a man or a woman, I am just interested in bright colours, prints and being comfortable!
Liam Hodges' camouflage and contrast blocking
Camouflage has always been a fave of mine and I am just loving the way Liam Hodges has used different panels on his army surplus style jacket and trousers, I am really into panel blocking at the moment, especially on trousers, and this is a perfect example of it. Camouflage and Converse it is then!
Brights and clashes at Libertine
I am loving the clashing printed streetwear and bright coloured striped knitwear at Libertine for AW 2018. I am also obsessed with printed or bright coloured trousers at the moment, they are pretty hard to find on the high street. I have found a couple of brilliant polka-dot and striped pairs at Monki recently but I am now inspired to make my own in big bold colours and prints!
