This weeks trends: oversized specs

Spotted on @oliviamolly this week and she shared the look on her Instagram

Instead of hiding, celeb-style, behind oversize sunnies, it’s now all about the oversize specs. Far from adding stealth, this facial furniture is designed for maximum cool, with our street fashionsitas loving clear, black or thin metal frames.

It seems retro rounds are doing the rounds again. Popular across decades past, from the John Lennon look of the 60s to the city hippy chic of the 90s, these playful shades are still bringing that statement edge to today’s threads.

No longer a fashion faux-pas, the shoes and socks style of our playground days is pounding the pavements with attitude.
From men to women, flats to heels, everyone’s getting in on this accessible trend. Plain, pattered, sheer, anything goes.

The fishnet always finds a way back into our wardrobes. On the streets at the mo it’s all about letting them peep out, whether that’s from behind ripped jeans or beneath a mini. You can even go netted socks.

Shine and be seen: that’s the advice that seems to be the go this Spring/Summer season.From the catwalks to the cities, we’re all either rocking metallics and sequins, showcasing our bods with sheers, or combining them both.

sequin trends


Velvet combined with hot summer days, not likely. Well, actually it’s proving to be a trend with traction, as it subverts the season norms. Out and about currently nothing’s too much, with vintage looking velvet pants and overalls both spotted.

Nothing says manly like a pair of sturdy boots, but wearing them loose, open and with the laces un-done gives them that laid-back modern edge. This popular footwear look ain’t going anywhere soon, whatever city you’re in.

Applique is a hot global fashion micro-trend right now, and is gracing everything from wedding gowns to everyday wear. What’s the current look on the streets? Big, bold and floral added to denims and leathers for that romantic 80s vibe.
