Forecasting



ALL RIGHT.  I am not a fortune teller.  I have no physic ability what so ever and I would never pretend to know what is coming next in our lives.  I certainly have no idea, but I have been asked to make a prediction about the fashion trends of the coming year and, having no ability or crystal ball, have decided to fall on my great talent for resourcefulness (ahem, asking my fellow blogger friends who quite possibly have a way better grasp on this than I do!).  Below is a list of tends I SUSPECT we will be seeing much more of in 2010.  Granted, the trends I have listed have been with us for a while, but I am anticipating (more like hoping for) an explosion of the following.   I have included a few examples above to help illustrate my desperate attempts at verbal picture painting.

  1. World or ethnic print dresses, skirts, sweaters, cardigans, and shirts, preferably vintage or hand printed, or hand woven.  Mostly Navaho, Russian, Batik, and Indian prints. 
  2. Sportswear, mesh, loose trousers tucked into boots, sporty jackets, easy shapes, all paired with slick height in the shoe department.  
  3. A wider acceptance of headwear ranging from more, bigger bows, hats, headbands, head wraps, you name it.  
  4. An explosion of and wide acceptance of leg-wear in every color, texture, form, including rolled fishnet trouser socks with heels, boots and sandals.  
  5. Vintage silks and dresses in a bigger way than we have ever seen before.  
  6. Hair I hope will be brushed out waves, great volume and texture galore.  
  7. Accessories will show the human hand in its creation.  Hand made, intricate metal work, beading, natural stones, earth tones.  
So what do you all think?  Am I way off base here or left in the stone age?  The early adapters have been doing these things for years now, but I expect the rest of everyone to fully grasp what's been going on. Your votes?  Suggestions?

I HOPE vintage dresses come back like the plague! Your post is quite lovely. Annie.

I agree with your trends although I'm not entirely sure I want to see all of them haha. Leggings are even bigger than ever though so I totally see legwear intensifying. Knowing how obsessed everyone is with Blair Waldorf's style on gossip girl headware definitely will see an upgrade! personally, I'd love more ethnic prints like you suggested

im hoping for athletic wear. leggings and biker shorts are already staples, and i think sweats with unintentionally interesting puffs and pleats already seem to be making their way in as workable pieces...hate to say it, but if this is the case, then i can't wait to wear sweatpants to work...

yes...sweatpants paired with the other things you mention: navaho print blouse, fancy headwear, crazy trouser socks, heels and a sporty jacket...

that 1st outfit is so spot on and as for your predictions - I hope they all come true, cause it sounds glorious!

daughteroftheRiver said...

Whether or not they explode, I would love to rock all of these! I am totally in love with the 1st outfit.

San said...

I definitely hope for more hats. Any way I love the dress in the first picture. Great outfit.

Diana said...

I've never been very good at predicting trends, but I certainly hope we see a greater emphasis on handmade and local as opposed to mass-produced. Being green is trendy, right?

myedit said...

Agreed! Isn't it funny how 'new' trends can easily be derived from vintage (as you aptly demonstrate over and over again)? That is why thrifting a joy to my heart!
Also, you look gorgeous in the first dress and the casual/sporty look is unlike your usual style but you look incredible!

Cerise said...

I have discover your blog only now. And waouuu I like it. Congratulations !

Melrose said...

WOW.

This is insane.

You need to revisit these predictions of yours and see how pshychic (that was a typo, but I decided to keep it that way because it's hilarious) you really may be.
