SO MANY SKIRTS!

SO MANY SKIRTS!

It’s not a question of when, but how, will you be wearing a skirt? Today’s selection? Tomorrow? Not to mention as always, who will you be wearing? After so many months of sheltering and zoom meetings, we’re ready to make our lower halves important once again, and what better way to accomplish that  than by donning a stunning, True Fashionista skirt to strut your stuff into a socially distanced, sanitized setting this fall and winter?

LOOKS THAT ROCK FROM A DISTANCE

Just think, only a few short months ago, we had never even heard the term “social distancing”. Now it’s a permanent fixture inside our subconscious along with face masks and handwashing. How the times have changed. Fashion, as usual, has adjusted with the times as well.  Outfits once viewed as eye-catchingly outrageous have become very True Fashionista on their own right. If it makes a statement from far away, it’s what you want to be seen in, from virtual runways to a modestly busy, fully-masked midtown setting.

MISSING THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY

It doesn’t get more depressing than this: Like everything else this crazy year, the 2020 Met Gala was canceled, or as they say, “postponed indefinitely”. The classic flurry of fashion, photographers and A-listers dressed to the True Fashionista nines was a non-entity, as the iconic First Monday in May came and went with eerie silence at New York’s currently shuttered Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Everyone’s got a new normal these days, but as things unfolded and locked down worldwide, the British Fashion Council was ready to go, recently announcing an online version of London Fashion Week: Men’s, happening June 12th – 14th. Content will roll out in completely digital form for the first time via londonfashionweek.co.uk, reports Vogue.

>Ah September, a time to look forward to all things True Fashionista: the upcoming holidays, a new school year, a change in the weather, and so much more.

FALL/WINTER 2019 FASHION TRENDS

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.

Have you ever found yourself inexplicably drawn to animal prints, especially those appearing on leather, of all fabrics? Maybe something True Fashionista colorful and artsy, the colors all swirling together like a light show? Thought so. Chances are you’re a Roberto Cavalli fan, like a whole bunch of us round the world.

HISTORY OF DENIM

HISTORY OF DENIM

Let’s be clear here. Blue jeans are the clothing item; denim is the fabric they’re made from. The two, however, are so inextricably linked that you’d be doing them both a disservice to discuss one without the other. In fact, when delving into the history of True Fashionista denim, the place that seems to know the most is the history department at Levi Strauss & Co., that all-American home of the now-classic blue jeans with the rivets worn by millions.
