I diligently cruised the aisles of WWD Magic to suss out trends for all those inquiring minds out there. What can you expect the next few seasons?
Color Talk: there was still tons of brown out there, and I was really surprised to see it. Brown was combined with grassy greens, teals and aquas and it looked really pretty. Black is of course still very prevalent and was combined with really bright 1960’s and 70’s prints.
Prints: retro retro retro…there were the Pucci inspired prints everywhere. There were big flowers, paisley, geometrics. Really fun. The other big look was small, delicate, very sweet prints, but with a vintage feel.
Looks: baby dolls dresses, tunics and more tunics and wrap dresses. Skirts seemed to be about knee length and junior showed little hoochie minis (big surprise). Tees had lots of tone on tone line drawings and graphic art. Shoes were mostly round toes and skinnier heels. Skinny jeans were all over and luckily enough wide leg pants were still very popular. I saw NO gauchos and no ruffled blouses. That trend seems to be DONE. I did see eyelet, swiss dot and really heavy big lacy eyelet in blouse, dresses and tunic tops.
When I get home I’m going to start sewing up tunics and 70s looking dresses since that sassy style is just my thing! Skinny jeans and leggings are going to be given a wide berth. These photos are to give you a general idea about the prints I’m talking about–not for styles…
