i am bad with trends at least anticipating them .... but i am sure there are a lot on here besides prince, who obviously doesnt follow trends, that will have an opinion to share - it is always a fun topic.....

Sorry...sorry...too much Zen & Art of Motorcycle Maintenance...

My serious opinion?

Plain-ties (none of those horrible patterned ones, thank you!)
Leather-ties (when did they ever go out of fashion)

AND

Probably this season's most fashionable coat is by Prada, double-breasted, tweedy, supremely elegant, but rather less cosy - instead of a Kenny-style hood, it has a draughty, wide neckline. It also has an unflattering, thin belt, which I suspect would mean having to pull your tummy in all the time, which is way beyond the call of duty when wearing outdoor clothes. It's also well over a thousand pounds (although Zara has a similar version). All in all, no substitute.

If you can't give up that wrapped-up-in-cotton-wool feeling, there are some nicely chubby fake furs out there. But cosy and glamorous though it is, fake fur has unfortunate style associations (Jennifer Lopez, footballers' wives). If you wear it, people think you're a bit thick and so speak very slowly to you. Which is why I'd recommend a trenchcoat. They keep the chill out something special and make you look clever and enigmatic in a French resistance way. And, despite looking brainy, they are easy to wear, since they go with just about anything.

I made that up myself, yes.

Hiyah Sarah,

I'm from the UK but I believe that many people on this forum are from the States.

Like yellow, tweed is totally unwearable and hence very fashionable (it's a kind of double-think thing 'I'm so cool I can wear this horrible tweed and make it look good'). It's always the latest thing;- you always read in fashion columns 'mannish tweed jackets are so this season', what they mean is 'mannish tweed jackets are this season, that season and all seasons past'.

merging this topic with the original thread

huge EU trends right now, tartans, yellow & bright colours, pinks and pastels, the 60's mod styles, optical prints and white.

black and white is still here but looks a bit tired

The stories I could tell you about things that go 'bump' in the porridge....

Just out of interest....have Sporrens ever been in fashion? Will there ever be a Sporren craze? The Gucci Sporren Pouchette?

I forgot to say: 'Thanks for the news, Lena '
