Summer is almost over and already every fashion magazine out there has a list of fashionable trends for this fall. Fashion experts suggest we start shopping for them now and we always listen to the gurus, so we look at the trends and what’s available, but with a twist!
While going through ideas from world-known trendsetters, we also wondered about new and upcoming designers. Why? Well, to begin with, they’re not as expensive yet and we won’t have to sell our kidney to refresh our wardrobe! Seriously, are we the only ones who think original look should be affordable? But there is also another reason and it’s because we believe new designers deserve the attention! Have you seen what they create? Some of them are so gifted that Parcl delivers their creations all over the world! They also have something to say about this season’s trends and their ideas are just as cool.
We’ve picked 5 of the more prominent trends (some are really intriguing!) and, without further ado, let’s get straight to discovering!
1. Red is Hot
This season, practically every designer included red in one shade or another in their collection. Moreover, this time around, dressing in red from head to toe is ok! No more reasons to wait for a special occasion, wear red everywhere and in any proportion! The new designers and independent fashion brands also have something to offer when it comes to red.
Check out this crisp Poppy Scallop Sleeve Mini Dress from a UK-based platform for independent fashion brands or more avant-garde Red Hoodie from Bulgarian “MyStyleM”, or an intricate Kimono Jacket from Latvian “SanfashionLV”.
2. It’s time to shine
From Karl Lagerfeld to Paco Rabanne, to Christopher Kane, silver sensation is taking over the fashion world. Whether it’s an evening dress or just a casual accent piece, the trend for space-age fabrics is officially confirmed. The new designers also offer their take on silver streetwear, like Holographic Silver Jacket by German “LenaQuistDesign” or Hooded Silver Dress by Israeli “GallerFashion”, or you can update your look with a pair of Silver Leggings from “CocoAndMaxShop” in Melbourne, Australia.
3. Vintage Floral
Romantic is also back, but come to think of it, just like the red, it was never really out of style transforming overtime into new forms and ever-more-beautiful new expressions. Girls and flowers are inseparable whatever the age! It is only logical that this season, flowers were seen on the runways of Tory Burch, Anna Sui and Kate Spade New York. The key to make flowers look modern is the styling choices. Since the layered look is also in, wear a floral dress with a solid jacket or layered tops with floral. Here we have a unique Felted Floral Shawl from Bulgarian “PalMiFeltedScarves”, original Romantic-meets-Rock Floral Leather Jacket from British “Frontrow Limited” and a Floral Top from Australian “Backstage” - perfect for layering.
Have you noticed how feathers slowly move from being just a mere accessory to being clothes on its own? Feathers are allowed everywhere: shoes, clothes, purses, accessory of every form and style. Why? Because ‘women like birds’ is a beautiful concept and if you can pull it off, go for it! We’re not so sure about feathers when it comes to streetwear (more than anything, for practical reasons!), but here are the ideas from new designers: a very original Neck Warmer from French “Beamik”, Feather Vest from American ZuckerFeatherPlace, and Feather Skirt from also American SarahReneeDesigns.
5. Bold Sweaters
Every magazine mentions novelty knits this season and their particular boldness unlike any other season before. Hey, just another reason to stand out! And with silver sensation and feather obsession, I’d say bring on the knitted boldness! But in all seriousness, unique clothes always suggest the uniqueness of the owner, so experiment and let your wardrobe express your originality! When it comes to sweaters and cardigans, “beWoolen” from Greece offers this Chunky Olive Sweater, Chinese designers offer an interesting Spring Sweater Coat, while Ukrainian “SvetlanaRogal” offers a very artistic Bohemian Sweater.
These are just 5 trends and of course there are more, but all of them suggest new and sometimes unexpected ways to express ourselves. That's why go ahead and experiment, explore what’s new out there and create your own extraordinary style! And whether you’re all about cutting-age future or romantic past, give new designers a shot, they might pleasantly surprise you. From our side, Parcl will make sure you get everything delivered to your doorstep no matter where you are!
