The return of street style as well as the instant documentation of it on social media has led to fashion heading from the runways to downtown at almost lightning speed, Vogue relays. Minis are heading even further up, while everything else is just getting…bigger. Yes, maximalism returns in major form this season. Into fur? Make sure those fibers are longer. Thinking about a new A-line skirt? Wider, baby. Colors? As bright as humanly possible, please. And those prints just better be spotted a mile away.
It’s always fascinating when high fashion draws from the raw looks of places unexpected to create the next True Fashionista trend for the runways and beyond. Last fall, designers tapped into what was happening at street level and brought it to the runways, so that we may enjoy these somewhat casual looks during the carefree days of summer. Streetwear has been a boys’ game for years now, what with athletic wear, designer sneakers and hoodies of all colors, but this year women get theirs. The streets just got much hipper, people!
