The world is on the verge of a fashionable revolution. Sexuality, classics and luxury, which have long been considered the basis of a stylish wardrobe, are becoming anti-trends before our very eyes.
If you used to combine a black lace corset (sexy) with a pencil skirt (classic), diamond jewelry and a mink coat (luxury) - and you are just a beauty and the most fashionable, now something has gone wrong.
The classics seem too boring and even primitive. Luxury is interesting only as a means of investment, nothing more. Displaying diamond headsets at fashion parties is already considered a sign of bad taste. Sexuality in its former understanding is going out of fashion. It got to the point that Vogue published a kind of epitaph … neckline.
So, let's find out, what, which seemed unshakable and eternal, today with a brisk step goes into the category "will soon be completely out of date"?
Appeared in the Renaissance, withstood several large-scale revolutions, the movement of suffragettes and the craze for plastic surgeries, today the neckline is becoming truly irrelevant. The Vogue editors came to this conclusion, and their opinion is still considered authoritative.
“The neckline takes a long pause,” the newspaper reports. "Breasts are no longer exposed for the guys or anyone else." Not that women were generally encouraged to refuse to show sexuality. But now it is better to focus on the legs, waist line, shoulders and back. And those to whom the figure allows, can try on the notorious "naked" dresses, which have already been tested by a good half of the star girls.
However, fashion observers believe that there is nothing particularly surprising in this: the advantage of natural over artificial, comfortable over inconvenient.
2. Pure classics
A classic suit (pencil skirt plus a perfectly fitting jacket), pumps, a light blouse and pearl earrings have been considered a neutral and win-win option for the past fifty years. Some conservatives assured that it is the classic style of dress that is the pinnacle of impeccable taste and will be so forever. But, as is often the case with conservatives, they were wrong.
Anna Wintour with the invariable square and straight dresses on the figure looks frankly boring. Even those to whom the doctor prescribed - the ladies of the political establishment - avoid the classical style in its purest form.
Sounds incredible, right? But the more successful a person is, the more he is used to optimizing everything. Sneakers are more comfortable than heels, and loose clothing that does not hinder movement is more comfortable and multifunctional than a narrow skirt and jacket.
Try to observe not only world stars (for example, Robin Wright is in no hurry to copy the impeccable style of her character Claire from the House of Cards TV series), but also a businesswoman, as well as ladies-politicians. Members of the royal families remain hostage to this style, but they are the keepers of traditions, where to go.
3. Fur coats
Sable, mink and other fluffy ones are better left alone now. Of course, one thing is a fur coat for warming, a completely different thing is fur in an area where it is needed from the strength of a week per season, but is worn as an indicator of success and fashion.
Fur coats and coats can now afford either frankly eccentric ladies of a respectable age, or those who have a strong immunity to clothing trends, or owners of very creative and frivolous models made of multi-colored fur.
The luxurious natural furs were replaced by parkas and coats with a variety of insulation. A down jacket is our everything for girls who understand modern trends.
And it's not about the high cost of fur (for those who want there are always down jackets for the price of a fur coat) and not even about the efforts of animal rights activists.The image of "boyarynya Morozov" is somewhat discordant with the image of a modern woman who prefers personal comfort to flashy luxury. Good news for fur animals and men tired of working for a fur coat.
4. Excess jewelry and sets
Today Madame Petukhova would hasten to hide her jewelry in the Hambs chair again. I would leave myself a pair of not too flashy just in case, and the rest out of sight.
Jewelry, firstly, should look almost like costume jewelry, and secondly, it has lost its value as a social marker. There won't be a lot of gold on a self-respecting fashionista. She will never wear grandma's diamond set (jewelry included) all at once. And he will assess the risks of a stylish failure if he puts on massive earrings or a samovar-colored ring in the style of the “times of Brezhnev's stagnation”.
5. Perfect makeup
Base, then some primer, foundation, sculpting blush and powder. If your makeup is taking up several cosmetic bags or bathroom shelves, then perhaps you should think about the principles of minimalism. But this is exactly the case when simplicity is deceiving. The abundance of decorative items is replaced by health - good skin, shining eyes, well-groomed and high tone. And this is sometimes more difficult than drawing a Mona Lisa smile.
If earlier it was not forbidden to hide imperfections with the help of special means, today you will have to take care of your skin seriously and for a long time (cosmetologists and contouring specialists quite rub their hands).
"Now you can come to a team without foundation, without lipstick, without jewelry, not on heels, not in a dress with flashy ruffles, without styling, without tanning, without gold-framed glasses, and finally, not wearing a fur coat - and you will be called a beautiful modern woman. They will appreciate your healthy skin tone, simplicity of style, desire not to accentuate your femininity on external attributes ", - writes the author of the Snob edition Nikita Podgornov.
