2015 Fashion Trends

Since I follow fashion trends I want to start sharing what I've found for this year. You'd have to have your head stuck in the sand  not to notice all the crochet clothing in stores and on the internet. I'm so happy it has stayed and I hope all you new crocheters out there will not let it go away! Keep crocheting, my friends!

More Trends
I posted a few weeks ago about the 70's trands in fashion and this article is their take on the 60's and70's trends for Spring 2015. 
Here are some exerpts from the OBSERVER.
"The spring runways reaffirmed the old saying, “The apple does not fall far from the tree,” as styles spring back to classic ’60s and ’70s garb. Established designers, such as Michael Bastian, Tom Ford and Hedi Slimane, are rethinking the classic outfits their parents sported around the house and on family outings during those time periods. Not getting to actively participate in these trends the first time around, nostalgia has been an influence in their latest collections."
They go on to say, "don’t fall victim to the system: We are here to provide you with a real style guide." They talk about men's fashion but I'm going to focus here on women's fashions. If you are interested in men's fashions go to the Observer to see what they have to say on that.
More on their take:
I like what they say here about color! I am not fond of drab color tones. You'll see that in my newest book, Colorful Crochet Lace! I used mostly cool, medium colors, but did add some warm colors for people who prefer that color theme.

"Jumping back to the ’60s and ’70s means returning to a time of color awareness, giving simple but lively tones a reboot. Pantone named Marsala (think: pomegranate seeds) the 2015 Color of the Year, reminding us to look past our standard blues and blacks. Other out-of-the-box, but still in-the-workplace, hues include robin’s egg blue, caramel and olive.
On the more casual side, spring and summer collections have embraced the light and bright “hippie” colors. Birkenstocks and white Vans have been making their steady comeback for a while, and designers have thrown their support toward washed-out jeans. The staple goes great with white tees, just don’t get too into the hand-me-down vibe and start ripping them.
The spring runways featured strong ’60s and ’70s vibes, man. Models were decked out in groovy garb from head (middle-parts channeling Joni Mitchell or, more recently, stars from Solange Knowles to Reese Witherspoon to Jared Leto at the Oscars) to toe (chunky flatforms and sandals with bold heels in bolder colors that looked like they stepped off a Volkswagon bus).
If you are starting from the bottom — tight clothing budget with a family to support or even more confined college budget, he's what they have to say on that. Of course if you are a knitter or crocheter, make your own! There are many patterns out there!

 "Incorporate these trends from there: the bottom. The ’60s were all about mini skirts, so go for short and go for patterns or bold colors. Look for skirts that button up the front for a ’70s-esque look. Try this out in denim and a below-the-knee length for an on-trend look that almost too closely channels “19 Kids and Counting” vibes but also resonates with “It” girls like Diane Kruger.
Wide-leg pants are the new, easier to wear culottes (wide-leg “shorts” that have been “in fashion” for a couple of years but are honestly atrocious and reminiscent of 2000s rap music videos). The Annie Hall-esque vibes look great when paired with neutral tops but can also be taken in a more colorful route with printed or jewel tone blouses.
Two important aspects of any ’70s look are fringe and suede. Look for suede pencil skirts in bright colors or fringed skirts and tops that you can don at upcoming music festivals to make your dancing look better than it is — fringe benefits. If you’re up for the challenge, incorporate both with a western-inspired suede fringe jacket.
Finish off your look with oversized, preferably cat-eye, shades. Add a neck-scarf tied in a flight-attendant or French girl manner to channel the ’60s, or add a head scarf and let the ends hang over your shoulder to master the ’70s bombshell look — and cover up a bad hair day.
