Look to the red carpet: There was Ruth Negga owning the last awards season in a series of generously sleeved frocks, and then showing up at the Oscars almost entirely covered in red Valentino — long sleeves, high neck, long skirt — and making pretty much every top 10 best-dressed list of the night. Ditto Jessica Biel (in long-sleeved, high-necked, floor-length gold KaufmanFranco) and Isabelle Huppert (in long-sleeved, crew-necked, floor-length white Armani Privé).
…because you can hold your itchy scalp up with pride knowing you’re not alone in the battle to stop the itch! I first started using a tea tree shampoo after my dermatologist made the recommendation when I was in my late teens and on a variety of acne meds…all that seemed to have the common […]
The media plays a significant role when it comes to fashion. For instance, an important part of fashion is fashion journalism. Editorial critique, guidelines, and commentary can be found on television and in magazines, newspapers, fashion websites, social networks, and fashion blogs. In recent years, fashion blogging and YouTube videos have become a major outlet for spreading trends and fashion tips, creating an online culture of sharing one’s style on a website or Instagram account. Through these media outlets readers and viewers all over the world can learn about fashion, making it very accessible.
With a duty to work, volunteer or manage a household by oneself, women needed a handbag that carried more than the small 1930s clutches. Day bags were inspired my military service messenger bags with long shoulder straps that were carried over the shoulder or across the body when riding a bike. For something prettier, a large (at least 12 inches) flat envelope purse in plain black or brown leather or plastic held a woman’s growing collection of beauty products. The ruched or scallop treatment on bags is an iconic style of this decade.

This first lady requirement has as much to do with economics as it does with America’s cultural ego. In the 20th century, it wasn’t China that the U.S. fashion industry was up against. It was Europe. Historically, Europe—especially France—dominated manufacturing and design. But after World War II, with European economies in ruins and the French fashion industry co-opted by the Nazi occupation, the United States gained an advantage against its trans-Atlantic counterparts—just as China reaps the reward of our battered manufacturing sector today.
Benefits of primary research is specific information about a fashion brand’s consumer is explored. Surveys are helpful tools; questions can be open-ended or closed-ended. A negative factor surveys and interviews present is that the answers can be biased, due to wording in the survey or on face-to-face interactions. Focus groups, about 8 to 12 people, can be beneficial because several points can be addressed in depth. However, there are drawbacks to this tactic, too. With such a small sample size, it is hard to know if the greater public would react the same way as the focus group. Observation can really help a company gain insight on what a consumer truly wants. There is less of a bias because consumers are just performing their daily tasks, not necessarily realizing they are being observed. For example, observing the public by taking street style photos of people, the consumer did not get dressed in the morning knowing that would have their photo taken necessarily. They just wear what they would normally wear. Through observation patterns can be seen, helping trend forecasters know what their target market needs and wants.
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.
New York Fashion Week was testimony to how thoroughly Westbrook’s worlds have mixed and to the influence athletes are having on top designers. Athletic concepts such as sneakers, sweatshirts, hoodies, and T-shirts have become staples in every designer collection, including Chanel and Givenchy. “I live in gym clothes,” designer Alexander Wang recently told the New York Times. “When you go out on the street, it’s the uniform now.” The trend cuts both ways: Nike has hired Givenchy’s Tisci to create a line of sneakers.
And then there are certain spring items that not only act as the glue that holds all other, more transient trends together, but they are also investment pieces set to last a lifetime. Here are the more classic items that cropped up the most…
Hi , I love the article and it’s very helpful, but it would really help if you could give more detail about who wrote this article as i’m using this as my source for my investigation on women’s fashion in the 1940’s. Also do you by any chance have any articles that is related to fashion today ?
Gloves in the 1940s continue to have the gauntlet mid arm length and shape during the war years. The elaborate trim was removed and the overall fussiness of the 1930s was replaced by plain gloves once again. Gloves were usually only worn for semi formal occasions such as an afternoon gathering, shopping, visiting friends or going to lunch. Colors usually matched just one accessory such as a hat or belt. Neutral colors were preferred: black, brown, navy, tan and white.

Menswear likes extremes. So, just when it looked like circulation-restricting spray-on jeans were never going to die, SS18 gifted us with leg-friendly dad denim. Think loose fit, light wash, unfussy and straight up and down. Like a more stylish, dialled-down version of the normcore trend, dad denim unites baby boomers and millennials through a love of unfussy comfort (just don’t mention the housing market).

And yet, many fashion insiders have never heard of the place. Its founders, Bill and Melody Cohen, who run the business with their former daughter-in-law, Stephanie Cohen, are savvy if eccentric businesspeople, who for 37 years have operated what the shopping website Racked called the “best-kept secret” in fashion. They locate their stores in secondary markets in the South, in small cities like Hattiesburg, Miss., and Slidell, La., where one doesn’t expect to find, say, a $10,000 crystal-embroidered Dolce & Gabbana bustier dress for sale next to a pool hall with $2 bottles of Michelob Ultra.

Toddlers sometimes wore padded pudding caps much like modern crash helmets to protect their heads if they fell. Most small girls and many young boys wore stays, especially with dress clothing, since it was believed that stays supported the back and encouraged proper posture. As late as 1771, Williamsburg milliner Catherine Rathell advertised “thin Bone and Packthread Stays for Children of three Months old and upwards.” Not all children, particularly those of the laboring classes, were put in stays, however.

Thus, the fashion show—titled “How to Discover America in Style”—awkwardly combined a tribute to Seventh Avenue with the president’s pet project. While the U.S. Marine Band played, models walked a white-carpeted runway set up in the State Dining Room. Shots of Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon and other U.S. tourist destinations flashed on a screen behind them. Several of the outfits displayed were conspicuously red, white and blue. “The fashion show has become an instrument of economic policy,” the Washington Post observed.
If there is one hard-and-fast fashion rule that has applied to all first ladies of the modern era, it is to buy and wear American-made (or at least American-designed) clothing, even on the campaign trail. Jackie Kennedy’s official designer, Oleg Cassini, was a U.S. Army veteran. Nancy Reagan wore James Galanos, Bill Blass, Adolfo and Geoffrey Beene, often in patriotic “Reagan Red.” Barbara and Laura Bush lived in clothes by Dominican-American Oscar de la Renta and Arnold Scaasi, a Canadian-born New Yorker. Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits were by Ralph Lauren. Michelle Obama put her own spin on patriotic dressing, supporting young Seventh Avenue designers—often designers of color—rather than established industry stalwarts. (Another one of her innovations was mixing designer pieces with inexpensive basics from J. Crew and Gap—clothes any American woman could afford.)
The default answer to this no-win fashion conundrum, for an alarming amount of working women, is to buy their wardrobes at Ann Taylor; a label so ubiquitous in D.C. it might as well be tattooed on the C7 vertebrae of every woman under 60. The line has always offered tasteful middle-management office classics in wool with just enough spandex to vaguely suggest a Sarah Palin strip-o-gram. My shorthand for the look was always “capitalist burqa” or “corporate office submissive”: cubicle-wear of so-so quality for the single girl in her late twenties whose self-esteem has been almost beaten to death by the beauty-industrial complex, and whose decent education has been punished with a thanklessly demanding office job. She’s a can-do Cinderella who has always had to change the oil in her own pumpkin and is too overworked to have a healthy social life outside the workplace. Her outfits must therefore be corporate-respectable, yet body-conscious enough to attract a nice tax-attorney husband.
