As fashion bloggers, it’s our job to be ahead of the curve and in the know on style trends. But sometimes, we look at the runways and get a keen sense of deja vu… sneakers, sweatshirts, elaborate nail art. These are all the kind of effects we saw on every girl ’round the way back in 1994, and now, we’re seeing them on the Paris runways. You know something’s up when Chanel bedazzles a running shoe and sends them down the catwalk with gowns that cost more than your monthly rent–and everyone goes wild.
For an industry that’s supposed to be up on what’s hot in the streets, oftentimes, trends are overlooked by some of the fashion set until some designer sends it down the runway, or some girl-of-the-moment is photographed by Tommy Ton. Kind of like these 9 trends… which were cool WAY before the fashion industry said so.
