TREND: Fall Leather
INSPIRATION: Miranda Cosgrove and Emma Stone
While the summer months have been heating up, your favourite celebrities having been donning leather dresses and skirts. While leather feels impractical in the hot summer sun, the cooling weather makes it the perfect time to try your hand at this trend. For example, put a badass twist on your favourite preppy shirt and skirt combo with a leather skirt. If not a skirt, join the badass leather jacket club. If you aren’t into the neutrals, a number of outlets have leather jackets in a number of different colours, including reds and blues. Also, keep an eye out for the next trend to adorn your new leather….
TREND: Spikes on spikes on spikes
INSPIRATION: Kim Kardashian (because Kanye and his stylist is helping her out style-wise)
To continue with a badass trend, watch out for spikes on just about everything: the shoulders of blazers, bottoms of bags and shirt collars. Even shoes are getting the tough love treatment as more stores are carrying their own spiked shoe line. For example, Aldo’s has heels and flats covered in spikes. Just be careful walking through those metal detectors, ladies.
WTF: Grass Sandals
Groundwalk Sandals should be included on the long list of odd things funded on Kickstarter. The sandals are supposed to “bring you closer to nature wherever you go.” The synthetic grass is supposed to feel like the real thing, kind of like you’re running through a field at all times. I mean, I get it. They’re supposed to provide comfort, especially when you can’t go barefoot in the concrete city. Are they stylish, though? I think not.
