FASHION COLOR TRENDS FOR FALL 2021

Straight from Pantone courtesy of WWD come the most anticipated True Fashionista color trends to know about this fall. Thanks to vaccines, there is an undeniable air of hope and optimism abounding for ‘21, and fashion is happy to reflect it in street style and more. Back in December, as Layla Lichi reported, Pantone revealed that Illuminating — a bright yellow hue — and Ultimate Gray are its 2021 Colors of the Year, as both represent unity, stability and hope. Perhaps Pantone Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman put it best, “When the gray clouds disperse, we see the sunshine.” Aside from these two, several energetic colors stood out on the Fall ’21 runways, like a denim, close to sky-looking blue, gorgeous greens, a proper brown in outerwear, fiery reds and luscious auburns and comforting beiges.

HISTORY OF SKIRT LENGTHS

“How’s your hemline hangin’, baby? “ said no one ever, until we did in this here blog post. When it comes to skirt length, or hemline, a familiar term which didn’t even come to be until the 1930s, fashion over the years has dictated a real hemline journey both up and down, albeit primarily since the twentieth century. Up until then, all True Fashionistadresses and skirts were primarily ankle-length.

REMEMBERING PIERRE CARDIN |  truefashionistas | Women’s Fashion and Clothing

REMEMBERING PIERRE CARDIN

French designer and household name Pierre Cardin passed away December 29, 2020 at age 98. We pause to give reverence to a True Fashionista visionary in men’s and women’s fashion whose decades-long career had many notable successes. He pioneered the now common practice of designer licensing by putting his name not just on his ready-to-wear clothes but also on luggage, carpets, kitchen appliances, watches, sunglasses and much more. He was also the first French designer to create a ready-to-wear line of clothing rather than custom-order clothing in 1954. A decade later he became the first women’s designer to launch a collection for men with his famous necktie, eventually expanding to a full line. Cardin was also the first French couturier to break into the Asian and Soviet fashion markets, staging the first French couture fashion show in Beijing in 1979.

HISTORY OF MANOLO BLAHNIK

Oh no here it comes…another Sex in the City reference in this here blogsphere. Blame Carrie Bradshaw and her obsession with True Fashionista Manolo Blahnik shoes, as she so famously quoted:

“You can take my Fendi baguette. You can take my ring and watch but you can’t take my Manolo Blahniks.”
