spring trend edit à la French Vogue

One thing fashion lacks, uniformity. I read no less than 10 different spring 2015 trend reports by various publications this weekend and no two lists were the same. Of course there are some overlaps, but there's even discord in naming the trends. Is it 70s revival? Return to Bohemia? An ode to everything fringed, suede, and flared? And even amongst the trends there's plenty of overlaps in terms of content. For example a denim, button down, pinafore could easily be filed under several categories-- 70s, denim, jumpsuits (ish.)

I don't see this lack in uniformity as a bad thing, though. Difference in opinion is always welcome. Without it the entire population would be dressed head to toe in the same, de-facto uniform. How boring would it be if every single street style shot was of the same pair of rockstuds, same dress, same Céline bag, and same artfully tousled lob?

For this installment of my own spring summer 2015 trend edit, I picked inspiration from this list published by Vogue Paris, because I believe in the power of Emmanuelle Alt.

  3. Love the floral maxi dress!! I'd love to get back to wearing more flare denim this spring!

  4. the floral maxi is very nice! Hope you have a nice week!


  5. that was once again an interesting post because as I've said before your blog is pretty much the only place where I learn something about trends and fashion :P so this time I found out I already have a couple of those necessary pieces. a fringe bag, lace up shoes (sandals, not heels though), a floral maxi. that's already a trio I can combine and wear as a whole so yay!

  7. Ok, that floral romper is incredible. The color and print are perfect! I'm always on the hunt for a perfect military jacket or vest so I'll take the military inspired trend for sure!

  8. Could you imagine everyone dressed the same? It would feel like some distopian reality were we're all controlled by superiors and have no mind of our own. I think trends seem to stretch so much because there are so many genres and styles out there, I guess from a marketing stand point it could also be seen as a way to reach the broadening masses.


  9. in some ways i feel top tier bloggers all read the same report! you have a point though.
    i've been seeing a lot of fringe on this side of the pond.. though it's a bit of a hangover from the boho trend more than having emerged as a new thing on its own.

  10. Love that this is a spring trend! Thank you for the heads up. The skirts and romper are sooo cute! I am now following you on bloglovin! :)
