Russian women like to dress beautifully. However, our idea of an ideal wardrobe often diverges from the vision of Western designers. From trousers with strips to voluminous sleeves and oversize – we tell you what of the current trends (so far) has not caught on in the vastness of Russia.
It is difficult for us to accept something new. We often follow our internal habits or attitudes of the society in which we live: not to stand out, not to attract attention, not to be a “black sheep”. And current novelties in this regard sometimes break all stereotypes. Stylist Maria Belova told us about how the trends of recent seasons have changed our view of things that not everyone was even ready to buy yesterday.
Huge sweaters, oversized hoodies and boyfriend jeans cause indignation and even sometimes disgust among women. Having once tried on a voluminous thing, it seems to us unusual, formless. And if a close person nearby expresses an opinion with the phrase “What kind of hoodie?”, we begin to doubt even more. We have always associated sexuality only with tight clothes. In vain! As the trends of the last season show, the oversize can look no less attractive.
Our brain is so arranged that, having got used to one, it is difficult to adjust to something new. But the paradox is that it’s not about clothes, but about thinking. And today, loose-fitting suits have become very popular. Because they were suddenly put on by everyone at once. Perhaps in another year, the oversize will become the main component of most wardrobes.
Eco – leather
The biased attitude towards this material stretches from the past. Previously, there was no good leatherette — they did not know how, did not want, did not bring us artificial leather of decent quality. But times have changed — and eco-leather has changed. And the habit of neglecting her remained.
Light industry has gone far ahead. Modern technologies help to make artificial leather much more natural and practical to wear. Plus, at a very pleasant price, an order of magnitude lower than real leather. Eco-leather is beautiful today! She even learned to “breathe.” And, preferring things made of artificial leather, we understand that it is much more environmentally friendly in relation to nature.
Trousers with straps
Modern people take them very hard. Often in our childhood, dads and grandfathers walked around the apartment in such trousers and then called it “sweatpants”. Although in fact they came to us from the wardrobe of the aristocracy. Trousers with straps were a detail of jockeys’ clothing. When a person, usually a nobleman, sat on a horse, the trousers did not climb up if you put the straps under the heel. Much later, skiers and figure skaters began to use them. And now more and more Western fashionistas are introducing similar models into their everyday image.
Women are generally afraid of any volume. It all depends on our feelings. When you wear tight clothes, it’s one feeling, but in a voluminous one you feel completely different. In addition, voluminous sleeves are difficult and uncomfortable to wear under outerwear, and without it in our climatic conditions it is often impossible. But in everyday life, a voluminous sleeve looks very elegant and refined. Therefore, it is worth taking a closer look at clothing options with similar sleeves.
Seamless rubber boots and galoshes
Buying a pair of rubber boots and putting them on in the rain nowadays is a very stylish technique. You can look different in any weather. Galoshes in a modern bow are as practical and necessary as ugg boots. But if ugg boots, as a winter version of shoes, for some reason everyone fell in love and would not take them off in any way, then, surprisingly, it turned out to be hard to put up with galoshes. Sooner or later , in our country , they will still come to them and love them .
Images from a man’s shoulder
Women are afraid to seem unladylike. But it’s better to be yourself. If your texture allows you to wear bomber jackets, you can combine them with skinny jeans, trousers and heels. Then the kit will have a story — as if it became cool, and your companion threw his jacket over your shoulders. The subconscious mind will finish the image if it has a story. Such a bow becomes very harmonious and modern.
With unusual colors for us, everything is very difficult. A couple of years ago, a straight-cut mustard-colored coat caused a lot of unpleasant comparisons in society. Now everyone is just obsessed with this color. Every second person began to wear it, and everyone immediately began to like mustard. And teenagers even called him “the color of fried onions.”
Adding acid colors to the wardrobe is a little easier. If you want to be fashionable and stylish, but such colors annoy you, use them at the bottom or add them to the image in the form of accessories. For example, acid tights with a black dress or a bright handbag for a calm image.
