Trendscape: Quilting

Spotted all over the streets of San Francisco: Quilted Jackets. Apparently Marc Jacobs isn’t the only one obsessed with quilting (see his entire line of current handbags). Fashion-savvy, street-smart downtowners also happen to think it’s perfectly on trend, too.

Spring 2006 Trend: Belts

Trend Importance Factor: Medium High.

Wearability Factor: Medium High.

How to Wear It: Belts are a great way to give your waist some extra definition–key if you have a boyish figure or have an undefined waistline. However, steer clear of belts if you want to direct attention away from your midsection. Those that are full figured or have a tummy will want to opt for beltless styles, despite the trendiness of the look.

Where in Trend Lifecycle: With the return to higher waisted styles, belts are back in fashion. Another reason for the resurgence of the belt is the individuality it affords the wearer–fashion’s emphasis on eclecticism favors accessories. The movement towards belted styles is still relatively new this season, so expect to see more of them in the next few seasons.
