Fashion Forward: PUNK

Welcome to my first installment of Fashion Forward!
 You guessed it! The trend was... *drum roll* ...PUNK!
I think a lot of the influence for this fashion concept was from this year's Met Gala, which the theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture. 

I am excited to see how this trend will translate into clothes for the average person.
Here are some pix from the fall 2013 runways.

So, what is PUNK?
This style of dressing has been developed & influenced by various rock music genres.
According to Wikipedia, there are several different types of punk, including glam punk, which is most predominant in today's designer fashions.
Leather, the colors black and red, metallics, fishnets, outerwear, boots, such as Dr. Martens, tartan, pleated schoolgirl- type skirts, hardware (studs, spikes, chains, zippers, grommets, etc.) all make up punk fashion.

Wondering how you can punk up your wardrobe using leftover craft supplies & broken jewelry? 
Check out my DIY video on how to make punk- inspired pins.

NEW SERIES! Fashion Forward

Hello everyone, it’s Courtney! If you haven’t heard, Google Reader is shutting down, so keep up with my blog on Bloglovin’!
   Today I wanted to start a series of some sort, reoccurring, well, whenever I spot something! (I’ll explain in a bit!) It will be called “Fashion Forward.”
   If you didn’t know already, trend forecasting, or trend analyzing is a HUGE part of the fashion industry. Of course, there will always be classic colors, silhouettes & prints that repeat themselves, but there are plenty of new trends & fads to be explored! What is trend forecasting you might ask? It’s exactly what it sounds- guessing what will be “in style” this season, the next season, and the next season, and so on.

   My goals for this series include:

  • Predicting the trends for next season
  • Informing readers about various upcoming trends
  • Sharing my opinions & ideas on upcoming trends

Leave any questions or suggestions you may have in the comments below!
Here is a sneak peek of my first installment of this series!

Guess this trend!
