Back 2 the Future .. of Fashion

Rewind back the past to remix 2010’s Hottest Summer Trends

This Season, fashion is bouncing back from the dark ages of recession with powerful looks, and total romanticism. Borrowing from the past for fashion inspiration, and inventing a futuristic surrealist view on clothing, brings this season’s threads to an all time high on the style meter. It’s the turn of the decade and it means change. This year the trends are sexy, and they mean business. Here are some ways to get the look this spring/summer season.

Wear the pants this summer!! This season, Bottom’s are bar none. Fantastically, they’re showing that every silhouette has a place. Bloomers are back and taking over the lower half of the fashion courageous body. Floral patterns, Lace, and soft jerseys are perfecting this comfortable, blooming trend. Doll up a pair of bloomers with an interesting pair of tights, or a chunky decaled belt. For a more fitted look this season, riding pants are breeching the fashion scenes. This year’s tight trend is isn’t just for the equestrian, it’s also a beautiful alternative to the stretched out legging phenomena. These make a great couple with a pair of rhinestoned combat sandals, or spike stillettos.

Rewinding back to a time where music was still live… for the Hot Pants. This summer the shorts arent afraid of heights, so they’re making the leg the focal point this season… Ladies if you got em’, flaunt em’. Shorts are also taking an all time high with a new full look, faking the skirt, so pretty up your pair with a thin patent belt, or a chunky broach, because being sexy is in this season… Don’t be afraid to show some skin!

Go batty or have a fit. Soft collars, blown out sleeves, and firm shoulder pads are defining the jacket standard this season. Before the big thaw, fly high in batwing jackets, or cropped shawl coats featuring soft romantic florals and icy toned palattes. Pins are big this spring, so grab a cameo, or flower broach to accessorize your jacket! Cropped fitted jackets are all the craze in 2010. Taking a tip from the 80’s powersuit, this seasons jacket has tightened up the waistline, and padded up the shoulders, to bring a new shape, and excentuate the natural waist. These jackets are great with a pair of hot pants or a sexy dress, and accessorized with a simple waist clinch belt.

This season the top trends are flouncy chemises. From underwear to outerwear, these flirty tops are detailed and decaled in bold rhinestones, beading, and metal studs, for an edgy feminine look. Lace is taking the lead as this summer’s favourite fabric. Not just used for subtle detailing anymore, this year the lace chemise is finding its way into every collection. Full sleeves and structured shoulders are another way to be top notch in 2010. From the simple short edwardian puff sleeve, to a more futuristic boxed shoulder, this year the exaggerated sleeves are a gotta have item!! Accessorize this look with a bold crystal necklace or belt to balance out the dramatic sleeves.
