Mixed in with my usual first life second life centered blog, I thought it would be fun to showcase the upcoming 2013 Fall trends. From what I’ve seen of the real life runways, it’s really going to be a mixed bag this year; with so many choices, every fashionista should be able to create their own unique style. The contrasts really celebrate the unique multiple facets of today’s women. This year the shows highlighted ambiguity between the masculine and the feminine styles, ebbed and flowed betwixt strength and fragility showing sneak peeks of both the opulent and the grunge.
A few days ago I was blog surfing and ran across an outfit I had to blog. I think it was my friend Boo’s jacket on Neva Crystall’s blog. And yes, it IS a male outfit, so once again, I liked something so much I am blogging male attire. But it does fit into the 2013 female Fall trends as well, because oversized shoulders and the tomboy look are definitely two of the styles you should see this year in real world fashion. Alexander Wang presented shortened jackets with large rounded shoulders in tribute to the oversized softened styles of Cristobal Balenciaga. This particular jacket “The Hill Jacket” from [Deadwool] mixes a retro touch with a frumpy air of nonchalance. It has a feminine-masculine look in the tab collar and though I mixed it with the “Heather” hot pant from Leezu! it would look equally divine with a uber feminine velvet high-waist pant. If I could have found one, I would have went with a more “Annie Hall” type hat but this one, the “SS12 Field hat” from Leverocci worked just fine in a pinch. But so you know, Fall 2013’s motto is “when in doubt, put a beanie on it!” The final details, the “Boho Buckskin” bag is classic *LpD*, the hairs from TRAM and the “Trauermarsch” boots, another menswear treasure, from [Deadwool].
Take from? Sure! It’s a great year to be a fashionista because the styles encompass so many genres’ you can surely find one that brings out your inner beauty with chic style. From the retro to the wow, it should be seen out and about. Furs, tweed, tartan, ostrich feather and leather, mohair and metallic mesh, it all has been offered up this year, the only thing missing is you. I look forward to seeing how you bring them all together for your own interpretation. And look forward to showing you some more of my 2013 Fall stylings. Hey! I loved [Deadwool] so much, I even included the taxi for you! Taxi:
