Trend Spotting - Tuxedo Tales

Trend Spotting - Tuxedo Tales

Tuxedo is one of those fashion trends that pops up reasonably regularly, I mean a structured black blazer is part of the essentials wardrobe kit and this is almost always coupled with a white shirt - they go together like Bert and Ernie.

My Trend Spotting - Tuxedo Tales is taking the traditional and giving it a wee bit more of a modern edge. This trend is about structure, textures and a monochrome palette MJ would be proud of. 

Trend Spotting - Sugar and Spice

Trend Spotting - Sugar and Spice

Sugar and Spice and all things nice... well not quite, this one has just a dash of naughty thrown in too. This Trend Spotting is about sweet-as-pie with a hint of minx, a balance between pretty and girly but just enough spice to keep it fashionably chic at the same time. 

Channeling past style queens, this look combines the elegance and style of Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O, with a modern twist.

Trend Spotting - Varsity Vintage

Okay... so this trend is well and truly spotted by the retailers, but it's still emerging out on the streets, so before you go nuts and buy that $200 bomber jacket you've been eyeing up, I recommend taking a look at my style edit of my take on the Varsity trend - Varsity Vintage. 

This one is all about combining that back to college, school girl, american sports look, with a little bit of vintage. No, I'm not meaning any old thing you can find in the back of the wardrobe. Varsity Vintage gets its edge from the wardrobe of the 90's!

Trend Spotting - Circus Circus

This Trend Spotting, Circus Circus, is my prediction as the next big thing. It hasn't really been styled in a complete look in stores yet, but there are tonnes of individual pieces around to help you compile your own take on it. 

Think velvet fabric, bowler hats, statement blazers and frilly blouses, all ranging in a fabulous colour palette of maroons; black and white stripes; rich purple lavender; and, red and black with gold trimming.

Trend Spotting - Pop Tart

Pop Art is totally trending... what do I think, no, no no! Ladies, this trend needs a wee bit more edge then what's currently out there... I dub thee - Pop Tart. It's not just about having a flash, bang on your top! This trend has so much more potential. Allow me to introduce you to this take on the Pop Art theme, but giving it a bit more fun, funk, and most importantly, style! Lovin' Pop Tart!

Go back to the future with this cool and spunky look!

Trend Spotting - Space Age

My prediction, Space Age is hitting and it's a style that has a lot more looks and variations than you think. Infact, when I first saw hints at this trend I was unconvinced to say the least, but I am now inspired, so I have sought out some cool pieces to add to your new Space Age wardrobe and my thoughts on what to team it with.
