Fashion Trends Popularised by Celebrities

Fashion is always at the forefront of popular trends, and celebrities make up a large part of starting those trends. From super icons of the modern age like Kim Kardashian to classic Hollywood starlets like Brigitte Bardot, icons make a splash in the fashion world simply by being who they are and wearing what they wear. The power that celebrities wield can influence design trends for generations.

Well-known celebrities also often bring back dead or forgotten trends from years gone by. For example, everybody had forgotten about leopard print until Kate Moss famously began sporting leopard print on her handbags and custom clothing. 

Tennis Bracelets

Tennis bracelets are incredibly fashionable these days; however, they weren’t really known so much until the talented tennis player Chris Evert famously wore one during a match. During a US Open face-off, her George Bedewi diamond bracelet snapped while she was playing. Before this, the diamond bracelets didn’t really have a name, and following the event forever became known as the “tennis bracelet”.

Makeup Contouring

Kim Kardashian is inextricably one of the most influential celebrities of the past 50 years. The American superstar became famous following the release of a private video, yet she managed to own the notoriety and landed her own TV show with her family. Since then, Kim has become one of the most famous people in the world and is known for her outrageous sense of fashion. However, one of the things she is best at is perfectly applying makeup contour that helps define facial features.

Smoky Eyes

Like Kim Kardashian, Brigitte Bardot is a Hollywood icon whose forward-thinking fashion still permeates throughout design trends to this day. Brigitte Bardot was known for many things about fashion, but one of her most notable contributions is the use of the smokey eyes look when applying makeup. The effect of smoking draws attention to the eyes and softens the surrounding facial features. 

Toy Dog Bags

You probably cannot remember anybody ever walking around with a chihuahua in a bag before Paris Hilton started to do it. Throughout her TV show with Nicole Richie, Paris was often walking around with her pet dogs in cute little bags. The trend became famous thanks to Hilton. However, the practice is not recommended as many veterinarians actually condemn the use of dog bags since it prevents dogs from getting the exercise they need.

Uber Designer Clothing

The wearing of clothes by super designers such as Donna Karan or Rudolph Valentino became part of public perception just a few years ago. However, public awareness of such fashion designers came to the forefront when the super-chic comedian Joan Rivers famously asked many celebrities attending an Oscars ceremony “who they were wearing” as they entered the venue via the famous red carpet. Since then, it has become an expected part of the Academy Awards to see celebrities wearing one-of-a-kind outfits.

Naked Fashion

Naked fashion is a 21st-century concept because of how modern attitudes towards what women wear have changed, and women are allowed to express themselves far more than they were previously. The principle essentially uses clothing design to expose one area of the body, such as the entire leg, yet to cover another like the upper torso. Additionally, sheer clothing is also used to significant effect to see the body yet at the same time covers intimate areas. No celebrity can be credited with starting this trend, yet Kim Kardashian, Rhianna and the Hadid sisters are well-known for naked fashion.

 

 

 

Is Your Wardrobe Winter Ready?

The evenings are becoming darker, and temperatures are starting to drop, which means winter is on the way. While winter is a time for being cosy and warm (and drinking lots of hot chocolate!), it doesn’t mean that you can’t look stylish at the same time.

Curating a winter wardrobe can be a lot of fun, as there are so many different styles that you can play around with. After a difficult year without too much socialising or fun, packing up your summer clothes until next year and embracing the feeling of a new season can be a welcome change. Hitting the refresh button and trying out some new winter styles is a great way to blow away those lockdown cobwebs and breathe new life into your look.

One of the best parts of winter dressing is that there is so much flexibility with what you can wear. Keeping yourself warm is the perfect excuse for playing around with different styles and textures to create a unique look. Once you have the basic items for your winter wardrobe, you will have the freedom to style it however you would like. Take a look at our winter wardrobe essentials that form the base for dressing stylishly for the cold weather:

The Perfect Coat

One item that you will spend a lot of time wearing over the winter is your coat. Choosing a coat can be so difficult. There are so many different styles to choose from, and you need to select one that will work with all of your winter clothes. Shopping for a new coat can get pretty stressful when there are lots to choose from, but you are looking for ‘the one.’ To complicate matters further, your choice of coat doesn’t need to just work well with your clothing choices; it also needs to fit perfectly and keep you warm. All this effort is worth it, as when you find the perfect coat, it should last you for years to come.

Lots of Layers

Who doesn’t love layering? Layering is a winter essential and also an easy way to look effortlessly stylish. Layering allows you to create a whole new look just by wearing the same items differently, and you can add layers and take them away to suit the temperature. Over the winter, layers work well with jeans, so find some that fit you well and maybe by them in a few colourways to ensure that you have enough to get you through the season and beyond.

Everyday Boots

Say no to cold feet this winter and find yourself some perfect boots. Boots are, without doubt, a cold-weather essential to keep your feet cosy on even the coldest days. The great thing about boots is that they can be styled however you want to suit your look. Boots over jeans are a great choice for meeting friends and Christmas shopping trips but look just as good styled with tights and a shorter skirt for a festive night out.
