Trendscape | Tassel-free Loafers

A staple of almost every man’s wardrobe is the loafer.  Along with their distant cousin, the moccasin, loafers are a hassle-free, versatile piece of footwear suitable for both a casual day in the city and a grinding day at work.  Still, there is always room for modernization of the classic slip-on. 

Our recommendation? Bypass those “grandfather tassels” that have become synonymous with the loafer and go for a more contemporary design.  Still stuck on tassels?  Try something along the lines of the updated tassels on the Paul Smith design.

Trendscape: Pretty in Plaid

Plaids have come a long way since Kurt Cobain’s flannel-wearing grunge days. The pattern – more grown up, mature and sophisticated – has been showing up on the runways, especially in the Fall 06 collections (Check out the plaid on the London runways, courtesy of Fashion Addict Diary). Plaid-happy? Here are a few pieces that translate better on the streets.

Omiru Poll Results: Leggings are Out

Leggings Poll Result

We asked: Are Leggings In or Out?

You said: It seems that Leggings are Out of style.  Only 17% of you think they’re still in style, and a whopping 44% say they’re Out.  And another 39% say that they’re on the way out.

Omiru’s take: Though the throwback to the 80s was charming for a short while, it seems that the romance of the past (at least with these leggings) is over.  The problem we see with them is that they’re just not super flattering.  The short-skirt-over-leggings look that seems to be this year’s frilly-skirt-with-Uggs works for the uber-leggy, but what about the rest of us?  And given the wealth of other fashion choices out there, aren’t there more flattering options? Leggings were fun while they lasted, but it’s time to move on.
