Omiru Poll Results: Fur is OUT!

Omiru Poll Result: Fur is Out!


Fur is OUTWe asked: Is Fur In or Out?

You said: Without a doubt, fur is OUT.  The breakdown?  A full 73% are anti-Fur, 6% believe fur is on the way out.  Only 21% believe that wearing Fur is In.

Omiru’s take: Here at Omiru, we’re pro-Animal, and we think that fur is best worn by the animal it’s grown on–so we’ll skip the "How to Wear Fur" style tips.  In fact, we promoted cruelty-free products in our latest Friday Fashion Hotlist.   However, we also believe that everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, so we’re not passing judgment on the pro-Fur 21%.  (We still love you too.)  It’s interesting to see the In-Out breakdown for this trend, especially since one of the big Fall 2006 trends (if you believe the runways) is Fur.  Makes us wonder what’s turning public opinion against wearing Fur.  Is it PETA?  Or is it something else?  We welcome your ideas, as always, in the comments.

Next Question: Boots are always huge for fall, but do you still love Cowboy boots?  Sure, they got a lot of play last year–but would you still wear them this year?  Tell us, what do you think about cowboy boots?  Are they In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on

Omiru Poll Results: The Color White is IN!

Omiru Poll Result: The Color White is In


White DressWe asked: Is The Color White In or Out?

You said: Overwhelmingly, In!  The breakdown?  86% are enamored of the color, while only 2% voted it Out.  The remaining 12% believe White’s on the way Out.

Omiru’s take:
White’s clean appeal is fresh as the smell of laundry coming out of the dryer.  It’s simple in a way that somehow feels elegant, and the color’s versatility is unmatched.  Perhaps most importantly, the color White is a blank canvas, a foundation from which to create your new Favorite Outfit.

Next Question: Eyelet is a delicate fabric treatment characterized by small holes, finished around the edges.  It’s best framed in white–so it seems appropriate that our eyelet sightings have been accelerating in frequency.  Tell us, what do you think about eyelet?  Is it In, or is it Out?  Cast your vote on

Omiru Poll Results: Dungaree Dresses are Out!

Omiru Poll Result: Dungaree Dresses are Out!


Dungaree DressWe asked: Are Dungaree Dresses In or Out?

You said: Out.  The breakdown?  56% voted "Out", and another 12% voted "On the Way Out."  A sizeable 32% minority, however, are willing to give this trend the benefit of a doubt.

Omiru’s take: Dungaree dresses are cute in a 60s-tastic way, and their youthful insouciance can liven up any outfit.  However, these dungaree dresses appear to be a niche trend. 

Next Question: The Color White might as well be the New Black (or wait, was that [insert flavor of the week here]).  Despite the wearability problems (Warning: Stains Incoming!), we’ve seen the color all over Fashion Week…and now, all over the fashion media, including Lucky’s July cover.

Omiru Poll Results: Cropped Sleeve Jackets are In

Omiru Poll Result: Cropped Sleeve Jackets are In


Cropped JacketWe asked: Are Cropped Sleeve Jackets In or Out?

You said: You love them!  A full 62% think they’re in.  Only 22% think they’re on their way out, and a mere 16% think they’re already Out.

Omiru’s take: It’s a cute silhouette, and although it’s not here to stay forever, we’re having fun with it now.  Cropped sleeves are flattering on most body types, which should propel this trend further into the mainstream.

Next Question:  I am Fashion recently reported on a new trend: Dungaree Dresses. Tell us, what do you
think about these overall-style dresses?  Are they In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on

Omiru Poll Results: Oversized Sunglasses are On the Way Out

Omiru Poll Result: Oversized Sunglasses are In...for now


Oversized SunglassesWe asked: Are Oversized Sunglasses In or Out?

You said:
They’re still sort-of in, but it seems that they’re reaching the tipping point towards On the Way Out.  While nearly half (48%) think they’re in style, 36% believe oversized sunglasses are on the way out.  And the remaining 16% have already deemed them Out.

Omiru’s take: The dramatic sunglasses silhouette, like all trends, will have its rise and fall–and it looks like this trend’s star is starting to burn out.  The innovators, early adopters, and much of the early majority have each burned through this trend, and it’s the late majority and the laggards who are left.  Going forward, wear this trend with caution!

Next Question:  Tell us, what do you
think about jackets with cropped sleeves?  Are they In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on
