Spring fashion - what's hot and what's not

post #1 of 145
Thread Starter 
Since spring is just about two weeks away, I was wondering what everyone thinks is going to be hot and not for 06.

Hot for guys:
White
Straight leg jeans
earthy colors
decency and respect
military inspirations

Not for guys
Pastel colors, expecially pink
jeans + blazer = put some slacks on damnit
flip flops outside of the pool/beach
witty tee's

i will always love my flip flops and pastel colored polos!

ooh, yeah i agree with white, earthy tones, and military inspiration, but ill always be a fan of my flip flops. i think also for guys, slimmer silhouettes, darker jeans, and if they can pull it off, colors. vintage things are in as always, destroyed polos, retro shirts, etc.
ive always wanted to try suede bucks with jeans. i dont know if that would look good, ive always had trouble finding shoes. thus the flip flops.

Military inspirations have been a fashion trend for sometime now, more so for univerisiy students. I would agree that straight leg cuts are 'in'. Raw denim and single rinse washes too (current Diesel line among others). I'm not really all clued up on fashion trends so I guess thisall I have to contribute

Hot:

Straight leg jeans *agreed*
Raw/single rinse washes

Not:

Jeans & Blazers (hate that look!) *agreed*
Witty Tee's (Not funny) *agreed*
Popped Collars
Trucker Caps

I've seen a few mags mention sleeveless dress shirts . . . I was a little skeptical, but I saw one from D-squared that I love but can't afford, but still it was rad oh and it was military style also.

white is hot now? as in like white pants or what? i hate white pants. or do you mean white tops? i must be like a trendsetter then if that is the case, because i've been wearing white for years now. like 23 years.

lol yeah I've seen alot of all white outfits, I did by a pair of white pants, but they are the loose, drawstring type, but yeah I've never been a fan of white jeans.

to answer your question,

i think people are just randomly talking about what they think is hot =p

for example, like what talkshowmute mentioned, the military look has been a trend a looooooong time ago, specifically almost a year ago.

its almost useless to talk about trends, not because we're cool kids who dont follow trends, but because trends depends alot on location. East American high fashion will be dictated alot by the NYC Fashion Week that just went by. There's also always the hollywood celebrity factor, particularly for girls.

if you really want to know how trends happen i can explain it sometime as best of my knowledge

i think these list are kind of funny; as previously mentioned. things come 'in' and go 'out' so fast it must be hard for those who subscribe to the lists to keep up. I just heard a middle aged co-worker talking with someone and she mentioned uggs were 'really hot right now' (my face: )

when has white not been 'in' for spring? and military inspiration? epaulets, combat boots, and military jackets have always been a constant (Michael Jackson 1983-87 anyone).

I recently saw that Jeans will be HUGE this spring

I try not to be trendy. i just wear what ever I like. you just have to sell the old stuff next season. I never invest in something unless it's classic.

How about John Lennon almost 40 years ago?

i think we're losing perspective here =p

fashion goes in cycles as we all know. what i was eluding to was that the military look was a high fashion trend on runways of late spring summer 05 and fall winter 05, which usually means that it takes some time before it trickles down to the aspirational market (us)...and even more time before it trickles down to the masses.

thats why theres inherent problem or difficulty in talking about trends because location, market, and the fashion category play a role in distinguishing whats the hot thing.

like for Diesel, camouflage and the military look is "hot" right now and while Diesel claims they dont follow trends, it seems very plausible that part of the reaosn they are pushing this look now is because its at the right time that the market (for Diesel customers) are gonna be receptive to such a trend.

most people (including HF people) wouldnt appreciate avante garde fashion and especially not wear it (even assuming that affordiblity wasnt an issue), it takes sometime for it to "appear" on the streets at a more regular basis and in a less conceptual manner before people start considering the possibility that its pretty cool.

so what i meant was to use the example of John Lennon or something that happened 10 years ago as a stamp that the look has been done before or was in trend before is kind of misleading and irrelevant. generally speaking off the top of my head, i would say anything in the past 2 years is what would be relevant in measuring what has "just gone" and what has just "came in"

heh, i hate lists like these. wear what makes you think looks good.
post #17 of 145
omg, i can't type. wear what you think makes you look good.
post #18 of 145
I think dress pants are also coming back...single pleat
the vest and t-shirt look
thick-rimmed sunglasses/aviators
stright leg jeans
either pretty light or pretty dark washes for jeans
rolled up sleeves
smallprints (as opposed to stripes)

I still like the sandal look as well as the blazer/jeans combo...but thats more of a fall look IMO

WEDGES! No high heels this season ( )
"natural waist" belts
longer-length shorts (aka. Bermudas, walking shorts, and skimmers)
crochet, lece, or eyelet designs
ruffles (vertical around the neckline to look slimmer/taller/accentuate the face, or a tierd skirt/dress to add volume to the lower silhouette)
oversized bows or scarfs
bude/natural colors; white (paired w/black or navy); sea-themed colors
handbag: big, squishy, demin, quilting, bold prints
LOOONNNNGGG necklaces (like mid-torso length)

Hope that helps!

Whatever! I think high heels (like, platforms and stacked heels) seem to be very much "in" this season!

it's so true! people think it's a new thing, like straight leg jeans. sorry but they hit the runway over a year ago

yep mozzalicious!

and as much as i am a the poster boy for impulse buys on the latest stuff (not something to be proud of :P), i still cant get myself to wear true straight legs yet because they simply dont look flattering on my frame. i do wear smaller bootcut jeans now for the most part
post #23 of 145
jeans and blazers will always look good on a guy. was that even a trend? i don't think its "out" per se since all the trendsetters are still rocking it. i do hope that the witty tees retire never to be brought back from the dead, as well as flip flops with flared jeans i was never a big fan of.

i really like how straight legs look on me but am a little iffy on how they look to other people. but i guess all that should matter is my opinion, right? i dunno, i maybe be a tad too built for them but from the knee down i really dig it.

i never really looked at it as a trend though, maybe since i've always been around people who wear tight ass jeans.

gap has TAPERED cuts now. i think the skinny jean trend HAS trickled down to the masses. well, at least no one is buying them (in my store, at least)!

i dont really follow trends. maybe because im too poor to ever afford any seasonal shit worth buying. all i know, is that ive been wearing alot of black, white, and grey, lately. and tapered jeans, of course. and i have a couple of vest/waist-coats. and stripey shirts! STRIPES.

STRIPES STRIPES STRIPES.
