By the spring of 2016, Missi Brandt had emerged from a rough few years with a new sense of solidity. At 45, she was three years sober and on the leeward side of a stormy divorce. She was living with her preteen daughters in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minnesota, and working as a flight attendant. Missi felt ready for a serious relationship again, so she made a profile on OurTime.com, a dating site for people in middle age.
Ms. Riley said, “Children have big tummies and stand in funny ways.” Although she has made one or two concessions to popular tastes, like making her ballet flats in nail-varnish colors, she remains fixed in her view that children should be children and little brand ambassadors or, in the current parlance, “prostitots.” She said: “I can’t bear advertising on children. And why would a child need to have anything remotely sexy? To me, it’s unethical.”
And if there’s just one colour in one key item to really think about, it’s the yellow dress. Not for shy and retiring canaries, this trend is more Big Bird: Think full-coverage yellow, worn in even the darkest days of spring to cheer everyone else up. Luxury boutiques have seen sales of yellow dresses spiking this year, and more are coming to satisfy demand.
The announcement of import tax reductions follows changes in June 2015, when the government cut the tariffs on clothing, cosmetics and various other goods by half. Among the changes — easier tax refunds for overseas shoppers and accelerated openings of more duty-free shops in cities covered by the 72-hour visa scheme. The 72-hour visa was introduced in Beijing and Shanghai in January 2013 and has been extended to 18 Chinese cities.
Forget what you’ve heard about opposites attracting, menswear is going for the full-kit look this season. But before you channel Run-DMC in your Adidas Originals tracksuit and shell toes, there’s a disclaimer: we’re talking about tonal colour matching, not wearable billboards.

Mary Quant and Andre Courreges both contributed to the invention of miniskirt during the 1960s. Mary Quant, A British designer, was one of the pioneers of the miniskirt during 1960. She named the skirt after her favorite car, the Mini Cooper. Quant introduced her design in the mid-60s at her London boutique, Bazaar. She has said: “ We wanted to increase the availability of fun for everyone. We felt that expensive things were almost immoral and the New Look was totally irrelevant to us.” Miniskirts became popular in London and Paris and the term “Chelsea Look” was coined.
For star athletes, fashion has become more than a hobby. It’s a critical component of their public identity, their “brand soul,” as Marc Beckman, Westbrook’s business partner and principal at creative agency DMA United, calls it. Westbrook’s image as a risk taker and innovator could serve him well in the fashion role he envisions for himself once his playing days have ended. The fleeting nature of athletic celebrity will make this difficult. Only Michael Jordan has built a fashion empire that’s outlasted his playing career, and his has been limited to athletic wear. Westbrook has similar plans, but he’s starting with high fashion.
There’s the cautionary tale, told by Melody Cohen, of the woman who shopped at the Metairie store without informing her best friend about all the bargains. When the best friend read about U.A.L. in the newspaper and told her, the woman had to fess up to shopping there for years. The friendship was never the same.
Wishing a Happy New Year to Grand Papa. Black and White mezzotint engraving. Printed for John Bowles, London, 1745-1755. The children wear the formal adult-style clothing and have the posture expected of children during the first half of the eighteenth century; their mother wears a lappet cap and black hooded cloak.1941-250.
Description Again in 1958, preppy sport coats and slacks were popular looks as well as suit sets that came with extra contrasting pants. Striped pullovers and cardigans gained more popularity and the standard denim look with flannel plaid accents and shirts were a casual stand-by.
He earned a reputation for integrity, and vowed never again to get in debt. “I’d say: ‘Do you have any old stuff in the warehouse? Call me,’” Bill said. “When you’re the little guy and a scrapper, and you do a good job and don’t cheat anybody, people line up behind you.”
Wide-leg pants are the trouser trend that just won’t let go, and it looks like they’re here to stay through 2018. From wide-leg cropped trousers, to high-waist paper-bag pants, you’ll see plenty of these cool and comfortable bottoms throughout 2018.
Andre Courreges was a French fashion designer who also began experimenting with hemlines in the early 1960s. He started to show space-age dresses that hit above the knee in late 1964. His designs were more structured and sophisticated than Quant’s design. This made the miniskirt more acceptable to the French public. His clothes represented a couture version of the “Youthquake” street style and heralded the arrival of the “moon girl” look.
The solution: turn them 90 degrees. The vertical stripe is officially menswear’s new go-to pattern. Seen on everything from bombers to field jackets at the global fashion weeks, there’s no denying that it was one seriously stripey season. In real life, you’re aiming for Armie Hammer’s effortless Call My By Your Name wardrobe – but take it too far and you’re one half of Bananas In Pyjamas.
Fashion trend goes beyond the aesthetic values, it emerges as an expressive tool for designers to deliver their message about the society. With the influence of social media, celebrities and bloggers, their voice are easily being heard and have impact on fashion and trend at any time. Fashion and music are inseparable. Prabal Gurung highlighted the importance of music to his shows, saying “each season we want to tell a story for 10 minutes…. the perfect harmony between cloths and music allows this”. Music is a representation of fashion that expresses the abstract design concept into relatable harmony for viewers.
Later that year, he sported a pale-blue sweater with his name emblazoned across the chest. It promptly became a bestseller, racking up 1,200 orders on My1stYears.com in subsequent days. Marcus Tagesson, chief executive of the premium retail site The Luxury Kids Group, says the impact the Prince can have on sales is immediate and tangible: “As with the so-called ‘Kate effect’, anything Prince George wears, we will see demand for those items increase quite considerably”.
This stylish mix of a modern robe, a traditional kimono and a proper coat has been a surprisingly fashionable and well-accepted trend since the last summer. A fancier, single-coloured version of last year’s waist-length flowery frocks totally worth bringing down from the runways that it is ruling this. They are slouchy, roomy and lightweight. Though thrown in with these summer trench coats, just for the sake of it, belts, especially a medium-size obi belt, with a knot in the side, can complete the look.

Whoa, put some shades on because things are about to get high-octane in here. From primary shades through to neon accents, when designers committed to spring’s bold hues, they knew they had to go hard or go home. Expect to see vibrant pinks, reds, yellows and more worn in either monochrome blocks or artfully spliced together—apparently not to be toned down with a neutral or two.

Although Prince George’s sell-out skills remain largely unrivalled – except by his sister, Princess Charlotte – he isn’t the only high-profile child currently causing a stir in the fashion industry. Harper Beckham, the six-year-old daughter of David and Victoria Beckham, is particularly well put-together, with a rotating wardrobe of Burberry, Chloé and Stella McCartney. Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s four-year-old daughter, North, has been known to carry a mini Louis Vuitton tote, and, in 2016, mother and daughter attended West’s Madison Square Garden concert in matching silver sequinned Vetements dresses. Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s five-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, also seems to have developed a penchant for designer dressing, accompanying her mother to the 2016 Video Music Awards in New York in a Mischka Aoki dress replete with a four-foot tulle train, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and a tiara.

Cedric and Athelstane were both dressed in the ancient Saxon garb, which, although not unhandsome in itself, and in the present instance composed of costly materials, was so remote in shape and appearance from that of the other guests, that Prince John took great credit to himself with Waldemar Fitzurse for refraining from laughter at a sight which the fashion of the day rendered ridiculous.
Evening dresses were the exception. They were spaghetti strapped or halter topped that revealed shoulders and chests but only mild cleavage. Skirts were long and full in the early ’40s and sleek by the end of the decade.

Ditto Harper Beckham, who, while she has yet to clone Victoria by wearing a pencil skirt, will still prove a useful ally when the time comes for her mother to branch into childrenswear. Harper already has her own dedicated Voguepedia page, while on parenting websites eager mothers swap tips on how to recreate her nonchalant topknot. And it is hardly Prince George’s fault that parents (OK, mothers) all over the world are scrutinising his every style move. Everything he has worn – the Start-Rite shoes, the Cath Kidston tank top, the Petit Bateau dungarees and the Rachel Riley shorts – sold out within 48 hours, prompting Forbes to dub him “the world’s most influential toddler”. Does the world need a most influential toddler? Apparently so.
