Glam style is so yesterday


It's impossible to tell just how long the effortless trends of today's mainstream fashion will last. As the go-to garment and footwear become more and more relaxed, trendsetters and street style mavens alike are looking more and more like they've just rolled out of bed.

Upon browsing through some music festival outfits at a Japanese music festival in Vogue magazine, I noticed that everyone wore their hair long and stringy with not a lot of style. The shoe option was nothing more than your average pair of Birkenstocks. The pants options were reminiscent of parachute pants, or something of the like, paired with a bohemian-like dress top. The prints reminded me if the vintage hippie with a number of florals. There were a lot of pullover jackets that reminded me of what we wore in the mid 1990s.

One side of me embraces this lowkey and low maintenance, original style of dressing, considering how fast paced my life is most of the time. Now, great style is reduced to a corset top paired with a pair track pants.

The other side of me desires to be a bit more glam. The days of dressing up, wearing your best make-up and up-do with great jewelry are numbered and reserved for the very special occasion only.

Of course, geography plays a role. People tend to adapt to their environment and that doesn't exclude fashion. But there may be a shift and it’s starting with the latest menswear, spring 2018, street-style fashion scene, which featured samples of his and her matching two-piece suits. Very chichi. So we shall see what's to come.
