There are two types of new year, the calendar new year in January and the so-called fashion new year. The fashion new year starts in autumn, the time we start a new school year or new year studying and i's when all the shops get the new years collection Fall/Winter 2014 in this years case and then there will be Spring/Summer 2014. So for every new season, along come new trends and we shop but really in autumn is the time I personally choose a completely new style which tends to carry on until at least well into spring. This year I decided to go for college look and was delighted to see I'm even in trend with this idea. It started when I found one of my Dad's Jackets. I'm starting to think I've got some kind of father-attachment syndrom or whatever, because I have seriously gotten into wearing his clothes, let's hope I'm not turning tomboy like in my 12 year old me phase (bad memories, I avoid those pictures). Anyway my Dad's clothes are so cool, chilled oversize and somehow vintage looking, which creates a sexy aura of effortlessness, (although in all honesty I spent forever checking which hotpants match color with his sweaters;)). His jeans shirts, sweaters and this jacket. It's a college jacket and huge and matched with hotpants sneakers and a tank top looks totally cool. I was even asked where I bought it and I joked in the vintage section of My dad's closet, they didn't quite get the joke...
Anyway the new college trend with plaited skirts, sweaters, army green and boots is compeltely my thing as it's comfortable, simple, can be very edgy and one of the few things I haven't tried yet. So I was off today and bought a bright yellow high waist skirt to match with a college jacket and sneakers. I love the hwole, Bad school girl image (talking boots and skirts here, no wrong ideas please) and love how you can team all your clothes to form your own unique style. Basically a trend everyone can do. Skinny or full-figured, tall or short, no breasts large sized, anyone really. From punk to goody-goody two shoes, leather to cashmere, flats to heels and oversize to tight.
The trend can lead you to remembering your good old school days, make school a bit brighter or give you the chance to show the world today the person you afraid to be in school. This is a new fashion year full of new fashion trends, ideas and chances.
Still loving fashion,
