Omiru’s Top 10 Fall 2006 Trends

February 14th, 2006

Without further ado, Omiru presents "The Top 10 Trends of the Fall 2006 season!"

  • Voluminous sleeves: Good for visual interest, but it can get theatrical.  Aim for small puffs rather than Jerry Seinfeld’s puffy shirt.

  • Oversized Collars: Oversized jacket detailing in its most visible form.

  • Capes and Capelets:  Like we said, it’s The Poncho, Part II.

  • 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…

  • Vests: Time to raid the Wall of Vests at H&M!

  • Sweaterdresses: The ultimate in comfort + style.

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

  • The Long Glove: This is the Huge Accessories Trend.

  • Chain Handles on Bags: The Hottest New Bag Trend.

  • Leggings and Tights: Great for layering.

This week, we’ve got the skinny on some awesome springtime jackets!For women: Pale Grey Lambskin ‘Biker’ Short Jacket| $294 at BlueflyYeah, we know that Biker jackets have been In for ages, but we love the clean, fresh feeling of this one.  Maybe it’s because it’s not basic black, maybe it’s the oversized collar (oh-So-big right now…and at least through Fall 06), but we just can’t get enough of it. And for Men: Forest Green Cotton Hooded Bomber Jacket | $197 at BlueflyClassically cool cotton bomber perfect for the crisp pre-Spring air.*Hey, are the roman numerals confusing to anyone else?  […]

    […] March 1st, 2006 As we’ve mentioned before, voluminous sleeves are going to be Huge this fall, as seen on the runways of Peter Som and Oscar de la Renta.  A look at StyleBytes indicates that the trend is going strong in Europe as well–look at the sleeves on that plaid Balenciaga. These sleeves are a great way to experiment with volume. We’ve found that the key to keeping this look updated is to make sure the volume is not near the upper arm and shoulders, which will indeed make you look ‘theatrical.’  Inspiration: Lela Rose’s Fall 2006 Collection    C. Ronson Empire Cardigan | $150 at Active Endeavors C&C California Swan Top | $88 at ShopBop […]
