I went to a fashion show at Holt Renfrew in downtown Calgary and here are the trends that Lisa Tant outlined. I want to be clear: I am not telling you to go out and buy things you find that fit these trends. Fashion is first and foremost about expressing yourself.
This list will help you to understand why you are seeing these trends in stores.
- Artistic Prints
- Stealth Wealth
- Shades of Red
Artistic prints for Fall 2014
What does this even mean? It means taking what would you normally consider artwork and draping it over your body. Think water colours, brush strokes, and pop art prints. Some of it can be hideous, but that is art! Not everyone can love everything.
Stealth Wealth means buying classic and quality. I love this “trend”. It isn’t really a trend though. This should be a rule. Lisa mentioned that you should buy the best quality you can afford. These are really words to live by. When you buy quality your things can last you almost a lifetime. Stealth wealth really means #slowfashion. Google it.
The Mod Look
For Fall 2014 Fashion, Mod loosely translates to A-lines and dress hems falling above the knee. is a translation t 60s. Lisa mentioned that some older women are concerned that they are too old to wear such a short hemline. I liked her answer to this. She exclaimed “You tell Tina Turner she is too old to wear skirts”. Bam! That’s right.
Shades of Red
Can you use Red as a neutral? Lisa Tant thinks you can. I agree. Red is a great way to add actual colour into your wardrobe. Red is also a great compliment to grey, navy blue, white, black. Shall I go on?
Red also is such a bold, strong colour. I find that when I wear it heads turn (in a good way).
The only thing to remember is to wear a red that compliments your skin tone. I find reds with blue undertones work best on me.
