A trend that’s looming this fall is unexpected combinations. Meaning pairing pieces you wouldn’t normally match. For instance, track pants with a white button down shirt as seen here.
Happily Grey is one of my favorite bloggers who does this trend exceptionally well, but it was also spotted all over the Georgine SS ’17 Runway Show this past fashion week. The collection was filled with mixed patterns like plaid and polka dots. Varied colors such as bright yellows and deep purples. Rich textures such as leather with metal, and lace with fur. Most surprising is the mixed silhouettes; combining culottes with trench coats, and short sleeve jackets with long sleeve undershirts.
Other combinations in the collection were: Soft lace with combat boots, safety pins with super structured leather dresses, metallic leopard print and pinstriped skirts, and sequins with pink dyed fur. Not to forget those vivid track pants with leather detailing that swayed as the models moved. While the collection hinted on the other popular trend, 90’s punk rock, there were many notes of unexpected combinations. Take a look for yourself.
