There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
From experiencing it first-hand, I can say there are some individuals that dress up solely for the cameras, in a way that you know they do not wear those clothes on a regular basis. I have friends that find this to be their favorite part of street style. As for me, I want to see how an individual translates a runway look into their own wardrobe. And, when I find these individuals, I become all the more interested in street style.
So, let's get to it. Let's take a look at some trends I saw during this past fashion week, which began in New York and ended in Paris.
I cannot believe it, but this trend is still happening and prevalent. I am thinking this trend is continuing because it caught on among various retailers, from luxury to fast fashion to big box. What's great about this, as you know I'm a fan of accessories, it is an easy way to add a trend to your current wardrobe.
Yes, the belt bags are still here and seem to be going from strength to strength! What I noticed this season was they are now being worn with a little more style. In other words, they aren't "just" hanging on the waist or hips, but they may be slung over a shoulder or treated as a crossbody. And, this trend is definitely hitting all price points. So, you should be able to find one that fits your budget.
There was a good amount of neutrals, but fluorescents seem to be having a moment right now - even if it's a touch of it. I started to see this trend popping up here and there and will admit, I kind of brushed it off. Yet, if you want to get in on this trend now, you may just be ahead of the curve. Will it be the next white boot or belt bag trend? I'm not certain yet. What I can say is that it seems to be picking up some momentum.
To offset the trendier pieces you add to your wardrobe, be sure to stock up on some classics, such as Adea's Layering Tops.

In the May 2020 issue of Smithsonian magazine I came across an intriguing article titled, “A Half-Century of Trips,” written by Ted Scheinman, (a writer and scholar based in Southern California). This features a subhead that reads, “Americans have steadily become more dedicated travelers, despite historic setbacks.”
This is the first thing I saw when perusing the 50th anniversary issue of the Smithsonian magazine for April 2020. This eye-opening 10-page article (with spectacular photos) is titled, “The Ship in the Ice” and concerns a topic we’ve all been hearing about for years, e.g., global warming.
The pandemic this year has affected all of us in many ways. Two things that stand out in my mind: people definitely need people (to paraphrase the song “People” sung by Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl). The phone, email, computer, TV and all the other digital creations we use DO NOT take the place of human interaction. We all need to see and talk to each other. That said we have also learned that we can work at home very efficiently and handle our normal workload if necessary. Never commute again? I don’t think that will happen, but perhaps we’ll find a happy medium – time will tell.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
