FASHION VALUE CHAIN

Crochet Set

AS SEEN AT:
Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Anna Kosturova, Helen Rodel, Katie Jones Knit, Lisa Maree, Alanui, Dion Lee Crochet sets of the 70s fashion are, arguably, a blowing fashion trend pumped up by Harry Styles and his pop-culture phenomenon “Watermelon Sugar” video.

The clip features Styles and a group of revelers on the beach, eating fruits while clad in an extensive array of brightly colored crochets, vintage- printed swim, and resort wear.

Ever since the launch of the video, the popularity of crochet has continued
to rise.

According to the fashion search engine Lyst, searches for crochet clothing
rose by 85% since last July, particularly for crochet dresses and crochet
sets.

From Lucy Williams to Bettina Looney and Chrissy Rutherford, crochet sets
have become the style of choice for beachside holidays and summer
staycations.

Hoodies Under Blazers

AS SEEN AT:
Off White, Gucci, Stussy, Noah NYC, Awake NY, Palace
One of the most popular styles rocking the current fashion trends is the
ever-so cozy hoodie – however, worn with a twist.

Wearing a blazer with a hoodie is no longer just another street style cut, but
a mainstream look that transcends generations.

Wearing a quarantine staple-piece hoodie under a blazer adds an extra
stylistic layer to your overall look.

Look for a slim, tapered hoody — preferably a darker, solid hue, without too
much embroidery or graphics. Pair it with a dark, solid blazer. Slacks or denim are up to you — either will
work depending on the occasion.

Women’s Oversized Bomber Jackets

AS SEEN AT:
Off White, Stussy, Noah NYC, Awake NY, Palace
Bomber jackets should always rest loosely on your hip – unless you’ve
opted for a slightly cropped style.

The clingy cuffs shouldn’t go past or above your wrists, no matter the fit.

The cuffs should be relatively tight, so if it hangs over your hand loosely, try
a smaller size.

The hues, in this case, are almost always neutral, somehow empowering the
underneath attire for an effortlessly chic aesthetic.

Cropped Cardigans

Bethany Williams, Gucci, Faith Connexion, Maison Mihara Yasuhiro, Prada
Very popular also in the 90s fashion, nothing defines the contemporary
fashion trends quite like the humble cropped cardigan.

A vintage-inspired trend kicked off by high brands like Alessandra Rich and
LoveShackFancy, quickly copied by Zara and Forever 21, and other fast
fashion brands.

Regardless, if putting together a cute outfit seems like too much to handle
right now, a skinny knit with your favorite jeans – from our best jeans for
women – is the perfect answer.

Styles range from basic button-ups to embroidered, embellished, or printed
knits, so there’s pretty much something for everyone.

You can wear these shrunken knits with slip skirts and a leather jacket,
especially if you need another layer of protection.

Of course, jeans and boots are also great accompaniments for a cropped
cardigan.

But however you style it, be that Fairy Grunge or e-Girl, make sure you’ll be
comfortable all day long.

Casual Trench

Burberry, Nanushka, Valentino, Sportmax, Brunello Cucinelli, Dolce &
Gabbana, Magda Butrym, Palmer//Harding
Not a fashion season has passed without the trench putting in an
appearance, and the most recent fashion shows were no exception.

With a perennially stylish military cut, the super practical trench coat has
been a fashion staple since the First World War.

Also, thanks to the Gabardine fabric, the casual trench is perfect for drizzly
days.

The coat of choice for iconic women for decades, the casual trench is
brought back to life by Meghan Markle’s recent royal visits.

Great with a cashmere roll neck and Prada tractor-tread boots to create that
stylish and yet military-inspired outerwear look.

Boiler Suits

AS SEEN AT:
Off White, Stussy, Noah NYC, Awake NY, Palace
This one-and-done hero piece has cropped up everywhere this year, from
the runway to your favorite affordable stores.

It’s easy, it’s cool, and it takes the stress out of picking pants and a shirt –
because we all have enough to think about right now.

Traditionally made from heavy canvas or denim, the one-zip wonder was
one of many game-changing inventions to come out of the Industrial
Revolution.

With men’s overalls, comfort and practicality are both high on the list.

Also, boiler suites are very popular amongst extended sizes, offered by
some amazing plus-size fashion and petite clothing brands.

Beloved by celebrities such as Giambattista, the Hadid sisters, Rosie
Huntington-Whitely, and Irina Shayk, this versatile all-in-one is your
swiftest route to utility chic.
