Top 10 Trends for Spring 2008  

8 comentarios

I am trying to get more into fashion these days. I have to say that for me it is hard to know what is "fashionable" each season, and in my case I see fashion being forced on me when I go buy normal clothes and all I find are really weird things. The same styles in all the shops. So then I think, well, maybe this is the trend for this season, right?

Maybe I need to change the way I see fashion. So from now on I will do a series on the Top 10 trends for this season, seeing what handmade items can be found in Etsy that relate to each trend. This way we will all be able to be fashionable and buy handmade! yay!

Searching in the web, found this awesome blog that explains all about the fashion trends, and what you can wear to follow each trend - FashionTribes

Also, if you need some cool looks, take a look at their FT Editor Picks. Some really nice things here, seriously!

Enough promoting already! (And they di dn't pay me for this haha) Just to let you know I'm taking he fashion ideas from that blog, and also some photos :) And giving full credit!

Trend #1: Safari Warrior

This is not my favourite trend.... but I'm sure a lot of people like it.
Basically, it's about khaki and army green colors. Shirtdresses, dresses, and overall the safari look.

As promised, I searched Etsy for items that could help us obtain this look and still wear handmade. And here are my results:


Sellers, from left to right, top to bottom: chictree, chickything, enigmavintage, annedarlene, ladiesofleisure, shopgoodgrace, shopgoodgrace, themachinestops, hollystalder

This definetly helped me out learning a bit about fashion trends and taken them to reality. Did it help you too?
