This time we aren’t going for fishing, hunting, farming or gardening but we are a hardcore fan of these special outdoor boots- Wellington boots, with their fantabulous waterproof qualities and never-seen-before fashion statement. No longer these are confined to heavy industrial work, mining, agricultural or horticulture work. No longer its designed just for heavy industrial work, for safety or even hygiene purposes. As these classy rubber boots, with its additional reinforced toe design, comes back as a fashion boot.
Going back to the British history of 19th century, we have found that these Wellies were popularized and worn by the 1st Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley. You can also relate it to the leather Hessian boots as well. These highly utilitarian Gumboots are made of PVC or polyvinyl chloride that is a halogenated polymer, so they protect you from mud or rain in outdoor activities. So, consider them as the best option for the rainy season. As a style statement, these super comfy boots are best if you are up for some music festival in the countryside.
Woah! It’s bizarre, isn’t it? Have you heard of the word facekini? No? well, these are the most unusual swimwear trend for summer, downright from China. Visualize a face mask including openings for eyes, mouth, and nose, something that would protect you from the sun or sometimes jellyfish stings! Imagine a stretchable spandex over your face, like you are traveling with a weird balloon wrap over your face! Yes! this face accessory can be called a Bikini for your face, Face-kini.
Its dated back to the early 2000s and was introduced by Zhang Shifan, a former accountant. It was rightly characterized as China’s most terrifying trend and we won’t even doubt it. A brigade of beachgoers was photographed wearing facekini in the city of Qingdao, in China’s eastern province of Shandong. You would find this accessory akin to the traditional British headgear of 19th century, Balaclava (or Balaklava). Originally it was a helmet kind of thing which was named after a city near the Black Sea.
You can explore a wide range of colors, styles, and patterns in Facekini, with paisley prints, dots, peacock feather patterns, rainbow camouflage and much more. Not only it’s protecting you from the harmful rays of the sun but also it’s best when you are tired of applying too much sunscreen.
Berets- the perfect reflection of a French It girl or perhaps a cliche Paris tourist. It’s our beloved soft circular hats that we often associate with 19th-century artists and creatives, even Pablo Picasso include Beret in his million dollar paintings. Although this cap has got a military influence from 14th and 15th century, you can’t recognize this one-off thing as a masculine and powerful item. As the fashion world evolved, so was the utility of certain stuff like Beret Hats. Don’t believe? Well, just take a look at Faye Dunaway of Bonnie & Clyde, you’ll definitely get a wind of how stylish a Beret can be worn.
This timeless accessory was once preferred by the famous Brigitte Bardot in 1968 and Diane Kruger in 1957. Pop singer Rihanna also opted for an unimaginably classy leather beret from Dior in Paris Fashion Week. Talking about Dior, you would especially love how this one-off trend dominated Dior’s Fall 2017, keeping leather berets in focus. Not only that, but Gucci F/W 15 & Marc Jacobs F/W 15 also showcased Berets as an upcoming accessory trend.
Inspiration can be from anywhere and everywhere, and it’s yet another time for fictional characters to come forward. Gone are the days of those typical fairies and pixie dust, as there is something extremely unique with a humorous edge to it. If you are a toy story fan than you would instantly recall woody from the animated movie, an Elf with unimaginable pointed boots with a slight curl in the upwards direction. You know what’s weirder? Some versions of these Elf boots have their tips reaching to the heights of one’s waist.The height of the tip of these boots was initially not considered vital, but gradually people started to compete on it. They used to modify it to compare on pointiness, even with the neighboring towns. Bizzare! Isn’t it?
Referring to the place of origin, these pointy boots seems to have been evolved from a rural place of Mexico, specifically in Matehuala’s San Luis Potosi, and were also referred to as Mexican Boots. In Matehuala, people used to wear these in clubs, tribal dances and other places like rodeos, now its more prevalent in most of the part of Texas. Men in North Central Mexico are sometimes related to these boots. You can also trace Elf boots to European people of the 14th century who used to wear shoes with extremely pointy toes. The quirky fanny packs were recently in fashion and now its the time for the ever humourous Elf boots.
“There’s no sense to them. But they make you laugh!” the Loewe’s designer Jonathan Anderson replied supporting the daring footwear he showcased in Spring 2018 collection in Paris Fashion Week. The extremely absurd accessory that was a pointy luxurious sneaker was thought to be inspired by the respective designer’s Moroccan slippers. Many versions of it were seen, whether it was suede or reptile-embossed exterior. Furthermore, Twitter-savvy people matched its source of inspiration to Elves and the character of Aladdin. So, are we ready to amaze ourselves, to a bit height for now, with this Elf trend?

The brands like Givenchy and Versace gave a new way to this fashion as well as retail brands like Uniqlo, Nordstrom, and Zara also stock meggings.

Ruffles high-jumped from the 16th century to make a comeback in this newest era of 2017, with a whole new diagonal version. Now ruffles are not ordinary but a dominating trend of 2017. The diagonal ruffles might add a bit of volume to your dress up but are brilliant for every body type, for every design like skirts, off-shoulder, multiple layers, sleeves and what not!
If we go for defining ruffles in the literal sense, then these are the strips of fabric, ribbons or laces that are gathered or pleated on an edge and applied to a garment body. The best thing about them? they draw the movement of the eye up and down, this way and that way, so it generally suits everyone.
Let the world stop, we won’t stop looking for statement sleeves, so stop and stare at what we have found this time; cinched sleeves! A perfect statement to add a bit of drama to your outfit; these are long beautiful gathers at the breaks of a sleeve, a design that can’t be possibly ignored by the public eye. This 1830s inspired pattern is usually meant for the lovers of puff or bishop sleeves, the ones who want to add a volume to their appearance.
2017 was a year of some extremely unique trends, there were different sleeves, no sleeve trend and now here’s is this puff like appearance, especially if we look at Spring/Summer trends. Oscar de la Renta showed a mesmerizing candy pink dress with cinched plus off shoulder blend. This thing ruled the fashion in Paris, sometimes complemented with slim trousers and sometimes with Mermaid skirts in brands like Giambattista Valli and Ellery.
