Lookbook September 2013 Spree

by snappingturtlee

TREND SUMMARY:

welp it’s clear that CROPTOPS are in
(the modest go for tanktops that show a bellybutton over a wide skirt
maybe throw a jacket on to tone it all down
while others will go for a maxi skirt and bra sized thing.
go explore!!

some are lacy and these look like cutout dresses

some might do a normal looking thick top tucked into a long/high skirt, but the back flutters out and short

gooo! be unique!  – marriki s
or you could go for the swimsuit not swimsuit:  josephine g
and other less modest but super cool things, literally)
THINK: REDEFINING THE EDGES OF OUR CLOTHING.
because ankles/knees and hips/collarbone are just so boring.
especially that line at the hip. it bores me to death. I LIKE THIS KAY?)

and CUTOUT dresses. it doesn’t even have to be cutout, just
crisp and printed looking:
or maybe both crisp printed AND cutout:
cutout shirts too have been going around.
and there are some pretty unique ways to cut around things

which also infers snazzy overalls

speaking of which i think tartan is coming back (in that one case complementing croptops and the love of sheer)
and not just denim overalls. how about a denim over all that you are?

fedoras are seen everywhere bleh
low heeled ankle boots were never really out
black LEATHER has seen a comeback in shirts/dresses/skirts alike. it’s just a different texture. lolol jumpsuits even
varsity items never go out of fashion it seems.

also black leather jockey caps. what is up with that?
match it with some plaid/tartan and you look like idk kinda cool)
and if you do that crop top skirt thing?

Still on the topic of leather skirts;  denim and leather just work i guess

all black in general might be coming back  (THIS IS JUST SUPER ELEGANT I CAN’T EVEN COMPREHEND)

on that black leather jacket croptop and fedora and high loose pants:  natalie l

or the damn jail stripes. go awayyyy.

low cut tanktops, preferably showing a little bit of a plain bra
has been everywhere on campus, before the weather snapped.

and you know what I said about the ankle boots? it’s getting colder
add some socks. and what kind of socks?
cute socks. crazy socks

and you know that shorts and tights are always there for you?
try to forget about those big hipster fedoras and worn leather backpacks

big cutesy collars are going to be a big thing
as well as impact sweaters with IMPACT PRINTS
people are trying to work with massive print/painting cloth and it’s really weird but interesting at the same time?
this summer, there have been some pretty snazzy prints. psychedelic palmtrees and birds have been a thing on bags and shirts and other things.
prime example of sprucing up a solid colored piece of clothing using large prints rather than textures.  french fry skirts are yes, a thing, btw.

personally I also think that clashers are doing a great job with their contributions
i mean this is from last year but they’re doing well.

cat shirts and other things are acceptable, but it seems that we’re going with having a second face on our chests in general
or just this alternate animal-print craze

but jail stripes need to just.
go away for a little. the leather skirts are nice though, and i suppose that shirt had a good shape.

also mustard
mustard and grape jelly need to just. adorn some new shapes and compositions. voila yes it’s last year but i love

this print reminds me of zentangles; I love it. The shape of the jacket also has my nod. but it could’ve been a little edgier
btw more prints?
I’m feeling super iffy about the vector print dresses. It’s just too much. The way to rock those solid lines is, that’s right, add some flow, and keep the accent piece as an accent.

and there’s been some 2d bags going about 
around what I’ll call high impact fashion

it seems I wasn’t lying when I was talking about palm tree prints earlier in the summer
______________________________________
but hey. hey. hey. it’s getting cold out there and it’s time to think JACKETS
shapes:

what is this shape even
(just to bring up the slouchy printed jacket again)
and oversized native printed jackets
and oversized really warm jackets
and oversized plush animal print jackets from last year
and thick oversized coats

prints:

neon prints in time for halloween. and i don’t think those tropical prints will fade with the summer for a little while longer. if it does there’s always colorful vintagey, such a classic lolol.

and once you pick it out you can just throw stuff together.
