Fashion has been in charge of giving us some rules to improve our style and way of dressing. If we use stripes, we can not use flowers, if we use a strong color, we can not use another strong color, less is more. Well, is time to forget all these rules and become rebels, that’s right, style rebels, break all the rules said before, because now the trend is more and more.
While summer ends our efforts are focused on finding the best Fall style. This year the perfect style is to add more and more. More color, more print and more layers, opposite garments that didn’t get along before are becoming best friends now, creating dinamic and fun looks. On Autumn / Winter 2017-2018 runway shows, designers made us forget about all the rules and gave us the opportunity to explore this season.
Geometric prints, denim, stripes, camouflage, big accessories and leopard print, all of that can go together if you want to. This aesthetic characteristic of the 80's creates a great contrast between classic and minimalistic garments versus overloaded style in other garments, and it has been adopted this year by designers like Versace, Gucci, Emilio Pucci and many more, making it clear that fashion doesn’t get along well with rules and is always a good time to break them.
We are approaching a time when individuality is the most important accessory when it comes to dressing. So many changes in the world have led people to want to distinguish themselves and show their own personality, and fashion has helped us create that individuality. Today, not only designers use their creativity to create collections, people are also using their creativity to create innovative attires and get attention with their street style.
The need to be different and not looking like anyone else has helped people find different choices and create new styles. Independence, creativiy and innovation, that’s the hottest trend right now.
