Dwelling on Fashion is my way of de-stressing. Many of us find comfort in food and maybe booz. Well I take myself away into a place of creativity with fashion, when I want to find a happy place. Outside of Prayer, shopping does great things for me. In October 2017, I opened LSUBoutique.com. I recently changed the name to LSYboutique.com because of web online competition with the initials LSU, Louisiana State University.
I can remember growing up women would say,” don’t wear stripes with other prints, today people wear all types of geometric prints with other prints. The culture has shifted. Me myself, I would wear black every day if I could.
Let’s look at the top 15 Fashion trends for 2018 according to an article written by Caroline Grosso of W Magazine. She said,” Art-Inspired Art popped up everywhere on the runways for spring 2018. Starting in New York, Raf Simons commissioned Sterling Ruby to create a colorful set and placed Andy Warhol prints on plastic panels on dresses. In Milan, both Prada's set and collection were printed with cartoon works from female artists from the '30s and '60s. In Paris, Rei Kawakubo sent out looks that featured the prints of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, an Italian painter whose work included surreal interpretations of fruits and vegetables. Personally I can’t imagine myself wearing a vegetable. I’m moving out of my comfort level trying new color pallets.
Grosso, wrote Chic Bling was a trend. She said, “Certain fashion houses are never afraid of some embellishment and shine, and yet this season, it seemed like everyone wanted to escape into the sparkling lights of the party. A little sparkle after last presidential election can’t hurt. Even Céline showed an all-white sequin floor-length dress—that's saying something.” I just added a sassy silver bling dress in my boutique. There is one thing that I know looking at Shinning Bling gets me excited.
Slip Dress Redux is what Grosso called, the slip dress. It’s not new, and yet this season it has translated from a minimal easy-dressing piece to more of a statement. It is embellished, it has a bit of shine to it, and it's certainly ready to come out of the bedroom and onto the streets. I guess I have to get pass associating the slip dress with sleep attire, thinking out of the box. God knows you need on a good bra with this look.
Grosso talked about the Sheer look. She said, “Now is the time to layer on diaphanous fabrics. Many designers presented looks featuring sheer tulle pieces layered over other ready-to-wear pieces, or simply on sheer pieces on top of other sheer pieces, to a dazzling effect. Plastic looks are in. This is one look that I think I will leave it to my rain gear. The Sorbet Shades will be hot in spring of 2018. Pastel, shades of lavender, lint, and pink were especially popular on the runway for spring 2018. Other 2018 trends, Perfect Parkas, Updated Trench coat, Punk inspired clothing, Feathers, Fringe, 60’s Floral's, Shorts and Logo’s. My Big mommy used to say, “keep it, it will come back in style”.
