We asked: Is Menswear as Womenswear In or Out?
You said: It’s In. 58% are all over this trend, while only 24% think it’s Out. The remaining 18% believe it’s On the Way Out.
Omiru’s take: Perfect for work, menswear inspired separates like vests, tailored shirts, ties, and wide leg trousers are a welcome addition to our closets. These classic shapes are easily adapted for womenswear with the addition of accessories like clutches, wide belts, and fedoras.
Next Question: The big trend story for Spring 2007 is Volume, Volume, Volume. Sleeves, in particular, are larger than life with kimono styles, which have sleeves cut in the same piece of fabric as the rest of the garment. But what do you
think? Tell us, are Kimono Sleeves In, or are they Out? Cast your
