February 14th, 2006

For your reading convenience, we’ve split the trends up into categories: Silhouette, Detailing, Garment Classifications, and Accessories.  Enjoy!

SILHOUETTE

Waist Emphasis: Much like Spring 06, the focal point is on the waist.
It’d be easier to list the designers that Didn’t follow this one.

High Waisted Styles: Long-waisted women everywhere celebrate with a trip to the mall!
Calvin Klein, Zac Posen, Alice Roi

Powerful Working Woman: We’re just glad these pieces don’t have the 80s shoulderpads.
Carolina Herrera, Zang Toi, Richard Chai

Dresses over Long Sleeved Shirts: Reminds us of Marc Jacobs’ Mod collection a few years back.  Anyone else thinking this?
Proenza Schouler, Willow

Voluminous Sleeves: Good for visual interest, but it can get theatrical.  Aim for small puffs rather than Jerry Seinfeld’s puffy shirt.
Carolina Herrera, Diane von Furstenberg, Three As Four

3/4 Sleeve Styles: Add 3/4 length styles here, and we’ve got Uber-Cropped jackets.
Proenza Schouler, Carolina Herrera

DETAILING

Oversized Collars: Oversized jacket detailing in its most visible form.
Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Willow, Richard Chai

Tuxedo Style Detailing: I wonder if this was inspired by March of the Penguins…
Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, Behnaz Sarafpour

Fur Fur Everywhere: Let’s just say that PETA isn’t going to be happy.
Carolina Herrera, Trovata, Chado Ralph Rucci, J Mendel

Japan, anyone?: Can we say Memoirs of a Geisha?  Let’s just hope anime-style clothing isn’t in the pipeline.
J Mendel, James Coviello, Nanette Lepore, BCBG

Ruffles: There’s just something so innocent and feminine about these ruffles.  
Doo Ri, Three As Four, Oscar de La Renta

Grecian Draping: So Very Madame Grès.
Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam

Sheer over Solids: When done well, it can be great…but if not, it can be a little "Date Night with Barbie."
Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, Donna Karan

Shearling: Somehow we keep thinking of those sheepskin car seat covers.
Oscar de la Renta, Lacoste, Sweetface

Penchant for Plaid: Reminds us of Trey from Sex and the City…only without the kilts.
Trovata, Zang Toi, Behnaz Sarafpour

Chevron Detailing: When you see plaid, you know that chevrons aren’t far behind…
Vera Wang, Calvin Klein

GARMENT CLASSIFICATIONS

Capes and Capelets: Like we said, it’s The Poncho, Part II.
Derek Lam, Monique Lhuillier, Narciso Rodriguez, Tuleh, Marc by Marc Jacobs

Bubble Skirts: As long as they don’t invite Bubble Boy comparisons, we’re OK with them.  Short girls beware though, as they’ll throw off your proportions..
Doo Ri, Twinkle, United Bamboo, Calvin Klein

Vests: Time to raid the Wall of Vests at H&M!
Tomer, Twinkle, Diane von Furstenberg

Sweaterdresses: The ultimate in comfort + style.

Short Sleeved Dresses: Maybe skin isn’t in?

Boatneck Styles: Perfectly elegant and a way to show off a long neck (or make your neck look longer, as it may be).
Trovata, Rachel Comey, Carmen Marc Valvo

Hooded Trenchcoats: Why would you wear a regular trenchcoat when you could get one with a hood?
Lacoste, Three As Four

Toggle Coats: Can’t say how much we LOVE the toggle coat!
Cloak, Trovata

Small and Square Sunglasses: Out with the bug eyes, in with sleek, technochic style.

Nerd Glasses for Men: These will go Perfectly with your "Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, All My Base Are Belong to You" T-shirt.

Long (up to Elbow-Length) Gloves: This is the Huge accessories trend.
Badgley Mischka, Doo Ri, Richard Chai, Nicole Miller

Short Gloves: First, it was Marvel vs. Capcom.  Now, it’s Short Glove vs. Long Glove.  We’ll hedge our bets here, but we always like to support the underdog.
Derek Lam, Proenza Schouler

Handmade Looking Scarves: Straight from Grandma’s knitting club.
Tomer, John Bartlett, Twinkle

Long Scarves: Maybe not so functional, but oh-so-chic!
