|A guide to the festive season: style trends|
September 21, 2010 Lela 0 comments
You know how sometimes these shows where they go to famous people and ask them what they think the trends are coming up this season. Well I struggle with that. One such reason is that these damn shlebs hardly have their own sense of style let alone keep abreast of fashion trends. One bone picked. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating. People forget that just because one is good at acting or singing that one has the innate understanding of the concept of style. It is not their job in fact. A fashion designer, yes, a stylist, yes, a chart topping singer… not so much.
So anyway, proof to my theory. Watching RGB on Saturday they asked a few personalities about trends and all. Khanyi Mbau, amongst a few. My point is they were all talking twak. Ok not twack. But people have this thing of claiming trends when they are just talking about what everyone knows because its all over those Legit, Mr Price, Identity advertisements. So as I move on back to my point. The one person who had something worth something to say was Gert Johan Schoeman- of breaking up with Uyanda Mbuli fame. He said, amongst other things that the “looks like you accidentally got paint thrown at you” look is it. First thing that came to my mind was “In Full Colour”- the J&B Met theme 2010. I couldnt agree more! I love the concept.
In my opinion in fact, the flower, the colour, the neutral, the spring- konke! One smartasss Twitter said “flowers in summer… groundbreaking”. My response? Whatever guy, it’s a hot look.
The moral of the story: if there’s a flower, do it. Put a big one on a quiet outfit like Sarah Jessica Parker aka Carrie Bradshaw. Put it in your hair. Or better yet take a whole lot of those old school flowers (the ones we used as broaches) and make an explosion of colour on your body part of choice. Do it. I said so. It’s hott.
