Trend Predictions for Spring/ Summer 2020

  1. Psychedelic Prints

1. With the sudden comeback of 70’s hippie fashions: flowy bohemian tops and flare jeans, etc. I definitely predict that the psychedelic, mismatched prints and patterns characteristic of the 60’s, will become huge within the next year. This will also follow the trend of bold, neon colors and prints that has been growing at a fast pace this spring/summer 2019.

2. Graffiti Fashion

To go along with the theme of bold colors and daring fashion statements, graffiti fashion, prominent in street style with metropolitan areas, will make its way to the mainstream. Edgy individuals wishing to send a message with their style choices will sport, graffiti-styled denim, leather, hats, and even shoes.

3. 80’s Graphic Art

My spring/summer predictions for 2020 are heavily influenced by the bold, abstract trends of the 80’s; therefore, I expect to see a revival of 80’s graphic art and symbols making appearances on: t-shirts, bags, dresses, and jewelry/accessories.

4. 70’s Disco Fashion

There has already been a 70’s revival for spring/summer 2019, with the prevalence of flare jeans, gaudy earrings, flowy bohemian tops, etc. so I think this trend will only progress and gain more momentum for spring/summer 2020. With bold colors and prints already making a statement, 70’s sequins and bedazzled ensembles will surely be seen on the red carpet and in metropolitan areas.

SheekChic 2018 Trends: Ruffles!

I know I’m not the only one that has noticed the overabundance of ruffles this year ;from streetwear to online clothing stores like Princess Polly and Saboskirt, even to the  fashion runway, ruffled tops and dresses are seemingly here to stay, and I have to say that it has been my favorite trend to emerge this year. I’m usually not the type to dress in frilly, delicate attire, but it’s something about the way those ruffles spruce up your outfit, adding a bit of playfulness, yet still remaining demure and quite lovely!  I think having a ruffled ensemble in your closet is an essential piece because they’re perfect for day brunch, a light-hearted outing to the park, a downtown stroll, or even (my daydream) dancing in a sunflower field!

Enjoy the ruffled goodness below!

Grace Kelly the epitome of elegance and delicacy, shining in a such a beautiful and refined, ruffled dress. This number definitely has some Latin flavor giving it extra Va Va Voom; the open neckline lets the outfit breathe from the heaps of ruffles Grace is under, and the polka dots along the top are classy, yet whimsical additions. The floral headpiece replicating a pink rose is fit for a princess like Princess Grace Kelly, and my favorite items are, of course, those dangly earrings, clearly a must-have with any princess fit!

Filha Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber estreia em campanha da Chanel

The patterns on these ruffles are to-die-for! I love that Karl Lagerfeld added the black vest to give the outfit some edginess and that smoldering purple smoky eye adds the perfect amount of impact to the floral ensemble, without overpowering it. Again, I completely adore those earrings! *hint hint I have an affinity for earrings if you couldn’t tell

SheekChic Favorite of the Day:

I love the juxtaposition between the doily-like, elegance of the top, and some good-old classic denim, to make this the perfect streetwear ensemble! I’d definitely pair this look with a high ponytail or a very posh bun.

Hugs and Kisses!!

Question of the day: Exactly how many ruffled items do you currently have in your closet?

 

Trend Forecast for Spring/Summer 2019

  1. Feathers

Feathers are making a statement regarding fabric texture, by adding a fun and sophisticated twist to your favorite blouses and dressy ensembles!

2. Animal Prints

Following a recent revival of the flashy early 2000’s fashion era, animal prints have made the ultimate comeback in full force, now seen on: hats, purses, pants, shirts, and shoes. This print is the perfect way to make a daring statement while still appearing chic!

3. Yellow

The BIGGEST color this season, and perhaps this year, is definitely yellow! It has seen a recent explosion on all fashion runways from Oscar de la Renta (as shown here) to Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, and it has also been widely accepted in street style as well, making it a permanent staple.

4. Neon

Related image
Along with the retro revival of animal prints and the wave of bright and vibrant yellow, we also have seen the comeback of neon shades: blues, pinks, oranges, and greens, reminiscent of the 80’s color explosion. This will be the trend I look most forward to seeing, because it’s such a bold fashion statement, and it is certain to turn heads wherever you go!
