Description Large plaids in reds, oranges, greens and blues were fun fashion fare for girls in 1969. Pants-dresses, double-breasted jackets with flared slacks, and overall-jumpers were fun fashion statements along with ruffled shirts and turtlenecks.
…because while you’re protecting your eyes from that pesky sun, you might as well lo good at the same time. From Aviators and Wayfarer to Ray Ban and Oakley we’ve got you covered. Sunglasses are like shoes, you don’t just own one pair. Some sunglasses are perfect to sport with your work attire (yawn), others are […]
As the sartorial choices of these celebrity children are shared, scrutinised and copied, the childrenswear industry is booming. Back in 1967, Dior led the charge, opening Baby Dior, but it was not until the turn of the millennium that they were joined by a raft of other luxury designers, who spotted the lucrative possibilities of cultivating brand loyalty early. Stella McCartney launched her kids line in 2010, and was followed by the likes of Lanvin, Gucci, Marni and Dolce & Gabbana, who shrunk their sumptuous prints down to pint-size. Over the past five years, growth in the childrenswear market has outstripped both womenswear and menswear, according to Euromonitor research. In the UK, the childrenswear market is set to rise a further 13.2 per cent in the next five years to £6.1 billion.
The pace of change accelerated considerably in the following century, and women and men’s fashion, especially in the dressing and adorning of the hair, became equally complex. Art historians are therefore able to use fashion with confidence and precision to date images, often to within five years, particularly in the case of images from the 15th century. Initially, changes in fashion led to a fragmentation across the upper classes of Europe of what had previously been a very similar style of dressing and the subsequent development of distinctive national styles. These national styles remained very different until a counter-movement in the 17th to 18th centuries imposed similar styles once again, mostly originating from Ancien Régime France. Though the rich usually led fashion, the increasing affluence of early modern Europe led to the bourgeoisie and even peasants following trends at a distance, but still uncomfortably close for the elites – a factor that Fernand Braudel regards as one of the main motors of changing fashion.
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.

Socks were popular with working women and teenagers. Bobby socks with saddle shoes are an icon of the 1950s but were really started in the 1940s. During the war, women wore patriotic colored socks instead of nylons, even with heels.
Summer sun and fun requires some extra care for your hair. Heat, sweat, humidity, sun, salt and chlorine create special needs all their own; very different from the cold & dry of winter we just left behind. There’s nothing sexy about a greasy oil spill on your head. You need to tweak your shampooing routine […]
But if quality really matters to you, the makers of traditional children’s clothes — Eiseman, Rachel Riley — and a dress from Oscar de la Renta, made in Portugal, fared best in the review. Not only did their products have features like French seams and chain-stitched linings; they also cost less.
The two piece suit was like the one piece but with the middle cut out. The pants came up high above the belly button with only about 4 inches of space between the top and bottom. The Bikini invented in 1946 was similar in style but tighter and lower on the waist. They were too revealing for most women’s taste.
Often consumers need to be told what they want. Fashion companies have to do their research to ensure they know their customers’ needs before developing solutions. Steve Jobs said, “You’ve got to start with the customer experience and work backwards to the technology. You cannot start with the technology and try to figure out where you are going to sell it”.
working in factories needed safe clothing that wouldn’t snag in machinery. At first women just wore mens’ pants. Later manufactures made pants for women, although they still looked very masculine. They were very high waisted, button or zippered down the side and had full legs with wide cuffs at the bottom. They were made of cotton, denim or wool blends. Women wore them at work mostly but soon became a part of their casual wardrobe at home and for fun.
Long vests, which the designers have been playing around with for some seasons now, are perfect for the pre-fall season, particularly because pre-fall is the season for outerwear that you have been so excited about. An alternative for the 70’s jackets and blazers, long vests have a slimming effect on the body, especially when left unbuttoned. They can be worn in the late summer September on their own, showing off the bare arms, with sweater when it gets colder, or even used for a layered look.

The labels offered — Balenciaga, Chanel, Givenchy, Isabel Marant, Public School, Alexander Wang — are dizzying for fashionistas, as are the markdowns. A Thierry Mugler gown that originally retailed for $2,960 will sell at U.A.L. for $740.
Sometimes we think that menswear designers are out to do a number on us. Such is the case with the resurgence of tropical print shirts which, on first take, seems like a bit of a sartorial booby trap. Liking a tropical shirt flies in the face of all good reason: they’re usually gaudy, never fit particularly well and are invariably worn by overbearing men as a nonverbal way of communicating that you’re in close proximity to ‘a fun guy’.
Colours you’re already well-stocked with are a good place to start – think blue or grey – but don’t be afraid of lighter neutrals and even pastel shades as the weather improves. Oh, and three is the magic number for the number of tonal items you should be wearing in one outfit.
With its power and profile on the rise, the U.S. fashion industry also became increasingly politically active. On December 6, 1967, a group of Seventh Avenue designers and manufacturers proposed a boycott of French couture and French textiles, in response to anti-American and anti-Israeli statements by General Charles de Gaulle. Thanks to the rise of Swiss, Italian and American textile manufacturers, the U.S. fashion industry was finally in a position to stand up to the French without hurting its own bottom line. Seventh Avenue was tired of playing second fiddle to Europe.
When Donald Trump tweeted that he was a “very stable genius,” he was accused of lacking self-awareness by journalists and comedians. But the truth is that no one has perfect self-awareness—you probably believe more than a few things about yourself that are false.

In the living room of their glass-walled, high-rise apartment in Nashville, where they moved from Louisiana nine years ago to open the U.A.L. flagship, Bill and Melody told their riches to rags back to riches story.
