The best trend

We see the new trend every single season. Some of them are interesting and fresh but some of them are just soooooo boring! As you all know, I highly disrespect the trends that fashion industry is telling us to wear though I must admit that I admire trends are brought to us from the previous decades. It is simply amazing to watch them being reincarnated in the conditions of fast-changing society. If I had to choose among all the trends presented in the last years. I would definitely pick colour blocking  as it is fashion God’s gift to all of us. I’m always super excited to see bright colour combinations on the streets. So, what is the best trend in your point of view?

Today’s inspiration. Dovima

Dorothy Virginia Margaret Juba who is also known as Dorothy Horan was one of the most prominent model during 50’s. Best known as Dovima, she captivated hearts and minds of the best designers and photographers of that decade. She had it all: grace, beauty, elegance, aristocratic posture and BEAUTY…have I already mentioned it?? As  Richard Avedon once said that Dovima was “the most remarkable and unconventional beauty of her time” and I can’t agree more. She was one of the high-paid (if not the highest) models in 50’s and was admired by millions. Dovima ended her career in 1962 at the age of 35 years as she didn’t want “didn’t want to wait until the camera turned cruel.”

Well, I still prefer my health over the fashion and style but I found a compromise and it’s name is Sorel. Sorel is Canadian brand that was found in 1962 and it, without any doubts, creates the best winter boots for every taste.

80’s fashion nostalgia

Have you ever thought that 80’s fashion was someone’s joke? 80’s were full of neon colours, shoulder pads, a lot of denim, baggy clothes and exaggerated details. Well, everything was over the top and bold, everything required colour and volume: make-up, accessories, clothes and hair.  I have my favourite 80’s trends (colour blocking, high waist pants, over-sized tops) and very excited to re-wear them nowadays , however I’m really happy that most of them are gone. Designers attempt to reincarnate 80’s from season to season and I must say I like the mix of the trends from the different decades. Anyway, no matter if you like 80’s fashion or not, it will have its place in our hearts forever. Get ready for more forgotten 80’s trends brought back to live!!!
