Fall 2011 Trend Report: Numero Uno

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

 

 

Skimming through the pages in various magazines, catching the eye of style gurus on the subway, stopping to idly stare at illuminated shopping windows…all part of our job in the fashion industry. Although it seems that we simply recycle looks, adding a extra few modern touches, we are really revolutionizing fashion daily. Anything and everything you put on your back is a statement, whether you want it to be or not. A statement about who you are, where you come from, what’s important to you…What are you telling the world?

Style #1: 70s Swank

GQ magazine recently featured actor, and Jennifer Anniston’s beau, Justin Theroux in an array of vintage inspired trends. It’s a new, gritty spin on a seemingly over-worked genre of clothing:

Style Trend #2: Khaki Winter Work Pants
Obviously this trend looks great with the previous post about “The Way of the Rustic Boot.” See we know what were doing here. GQ features another easy, wearable, ultra-masculine look: the rustic khaki pant. Pair it up with some rugged boots.

This bag is from Duluth Trading Company, which sells excellent quality products. We recently purchased a knapsack from them and not only is it incredibly sleek, beautiful leather, but durable and well made. We like to think of this brand as a little best kept search in fashion, because the prices aren’t nearly what they could be for these products. Anyways, here’s one of their ultra-cool bags:

Pair your leather case with a sleek beige tie from Daniel Dolce:
