Latest Fashion Trends

Trends go up and trends go down, and after that the cycle starts again… this is true for the economy, but certainly true for fashion and clothing trends. And I’ve even read a very interesting report that claimed that a correlation exists between the state of the eceonomy and fashion: economy is up and skirts are short - and vice versa… There is a lot that goes into the latest fashion trends, including clothing, jewelry, shoes, handbags, belts and more.  To be the most up to date on the latest fashion many teenage girls and women subscribe to fashion magazines, and these magazines track the trends coming from the latest runway shows.  Larger clothing manufacturers often get their ideas from runway shows, so cutting edge fashionistas pay close attention to these shows to stay on top of the latest fashion.

This season, the latest fashion seems to be quite appealing to those of all ages.  The eighties style is rearing back full force including leggings, off the shoulder shirts, skinny jeans and ballet slipper shoes.  This style tends to lend itself more to the under 21 crowd, and many stores like Old Navy, Hollister and Charlotte Russe that cater to this demographic are stocking up on this latest fashion for back to school shopping.

For those older than 21, there is still hope to remain up with the latest fashion without looking like you are trying too hard.  Jewel tones are quite popular including dark purples, greens, reds and ambers.  Also popular are black and white clothing pieces with red accents like purses, shoes or jewelry.  While leggings and off the shoulder shirts are not recommended, many older women can pull off skinny jeans and long tunic button up shirts complete with the larger belt slung round the waist which is all part of the latest fashion trend as well. 

Some updates can be made fairly inexpensively to keep up with the latest fashion.  You certainly don’t need to go out and buy a completely new wardrobe by any means.  Buying simple accent pieces like red handbags and jewelry, larger belts and jewel tone t-shirts can add a splash of new fashion in with just about any outfit.  In addition, tasteful ballet slipper shoes can often update an outfit for very little money.  It is always a good idea to buy some basic pieces that will never go out of style to build your wardrobe and update your accessories with each new fashion trend.  This will save you much money in the long run, and you won’t have to throw out your entire closet of clothes every few years!

If you want to be in tune with the latest fashion, be sure to check out fashion magazines, fashion oriented websites and store windows.  Large department stores generally keep up with the latest fashion in their junior departments, and stores like the Gap, Abercrombie and Old Navy offer some versatile pieces for those of any age.  Be sure to have fun with it and let your own personality shine through!
