The world of fashion is simply amazing. Fashion trends change so fast in the world today but the good thing is that the versatility of options is always maintained. Different continents in the world seem to develop a particular spectacular sense of fashion that is unique to them. Its popularity spreads around the world and that’s how a trend comes around. Let’s indulge in this amazing world.
African Ankara (tribal)
The African Ankara design is popularly known as tribal. African traditional wear comprised of clothing with amazing patterns. The evolution of this fashion trend has hit the waves of late with different aspects being brought alive. Traditionally, it came in conservative forms of long dresses and skirts for women and wraps for men. Its versatility has been explored with amazing designs such as short skirts, pants; both fitting and loosely held, long dresses and skirts and head-wraps. The tribal wear is not only limited to clothes; shoes and bags can also be created with these patterns. With clothes it can be worn as print on print, meaning both top and bottom wear have the same print, or even different prints; also, it can be worn with a solid colour at either the top or bottom.
Colour your world Asia
Asia is commonly known for the traditional saris, hans and kimonos. These dead fashion trends were recently brought to life through exquisite manipulation of the original wears. The conservativeness of the clothing is maintained but some skin is shown here and there. The Indian sari offers the chance of showing skin at the arms and the belly. The Chinese hanfu has of late been shortened to considerable lengths but the silk material has been maintained. The Japanese kimono is now being created in form of dresses, pants and sweater wrap-arounds. Asian fashion trends follow the use of lots of colour and emphasis on details. This feature of colour also brought about the floral patterns on clothes, shoes and accessories.
American fashion is extremely bold. Current trends feature showing hints of skin in an elegant form. This fashion is championed by trends such as chiffon, lace, sheer and cropped tops. Chiffon and lace are very versatile since they can work well for both formal and casual wear. Chunky jewellery is also a key feature of American fashion. The use of geometric patterns on clothes is part of the sleek American fashion. Colour, patterns and designs are the main elements of this trend.
Europeans have always been conservatives, which is great since the whole world can’t be so bold and showy. European fashion focuses on classy jackets and hats. Military-buttoned jackets are amazing for both men and women, be it in form of long trench coats or fitting day jackets. European fashion centers around the use of bold, solid uni-colours and patterns. Long skirts and fitting tops, fitting pants and loosely held tops or loose pants and fittings tops are the most followed trends.
Of late, the evolution of old fashion trends seems to be happening in all parts of the world. A combination of all these trends would work well for anyone’s closet. The bonus point is that these fashion trends apply to both male and female of almost all ages.
