Okey, fair enough, this post is slightly against my principle of not wanting to encourage people to dress like everyone else. But it’s fun indeed to take a look at very specific trendy outfits every now and then. It says quite a lot about 1) the current trends 2) the current styles 3) the collective idea of “what” one should look like these days. Also, nothing better like getting some ideas from trendy elements you enjoy, right? Here are three very specific and trendy outfits December 2017. As always folks, be inspired by these ideas but make them your own and don’t listen to me as I just ramble a lot, like a lot a lot.
Courtsey of Gucci | Pre-Fall 2017
Long Sweater, Midi Skirt and Boots
I adore this trendy style due to several reasons. One of them, a very central one, is that the silhouette is painfully awkward. Is kind of a casual mermaid-silhouette but gone more edgy. The long sweater (often hitting below the knee) with a long midi skirt and some high boots is a very trendy look at the moment. I think it’s mainly because of the problem with cold temperatures and working the midi skirt which makes the boots perfect to add. Also the fact that sweaters are an item of fall and works well with the rest of the elements makes the three a match. If you want to try this outfit I think that one essential thing is to go for different colors in the three elements. Even better if you go monochromatic and pick a lighter grey shade for the sweater, a darker for the skirt and the darkest for the boots. I mean, can you go more fashion? Pretty sure not. Don’t forget to mix the texture elements too of knitwear and (faux) leather, suede – it ought to be a hit. Also, if you’re unsure about the silhouette, go for a shorter sweater as it’ll balance the silhouette better.
Statement Blazer and Belt Bag
Oh my, if the 80s and the 90s were to have a fashion child this is what it would look like. You have the statement blazer of the 80s and the belt bag (aka fanny pack or waist bag) of the 90s. This is actually quite the clever trend as the 80s statement blazer needs some structure and one way to do it is by adding a belt. BUT (there’s always buts), a regular belt looks a bit off and often clashes with the buttons and the imbalance of volume. A belt bag looks more heavy however and makes a great counterpart by both defining the waist but also adding structure in the outfit. Go for your statement blazer and try to match it with a belt bag. I’d say starting with neutral elements is a safe way of getting ahead.
Teddy Coat and Leather Pants
I talked about this combination in an outfit a few weeks ago (oh well, it was patent leather – but still) and it keeps on growing. The reason to its success is quite simple as the teddy coats are voluminous, cozy and fluffy and are in need of some edge for a good balance. This is where the leather comes in. Leather is associated with edge, attitude and streetwear which makes up for a perfect balance in relation to the fluffy texture of the teddy coat. So next time you work your teddy coat, pair it with your leather pants or leggings. Patent leather and suede are two other materials that are great to balance it with. And folks, remember to go faux on all elements in this outfit!
