FALL FASHION TRENDS 2018 Cecilia Rosalie Reporting

Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since the last time I wrote something, but to make a long story short I am back, refreshed and bringing you tons of (fashionable) goodies, of course.

Summer is almost gone and it’s time to renew our wardrobe. In fact mine needs to be thrown away! Let’s take a look at the current fashion trends in Autumn 1018, the eccentric and surreal style is in fashion this year, and the designs and suggestions I have for you will impress you.

TREND #1

The fire red is one of the must have colors to be worn. The absolute monochrome is not forbidden and the total red look is imposed. Red will not be worn only in clothes but also in shoes and different accessories.

TREND #2

Pieces taken from the athletic clothing industry are embedded with chic pieces and the result is unique. Small details that make the outfit stand out and the athletic-chic style emphasizes its presence.

TREND #3

The crop-top trend came to stay so, the jackets for this year - leather, textile, inflatable - are cut higher and renew the fashion in the jackets, which until last year was long with sharp cut waist design.

TREND #4



The plaid pattern in all its glory. Vintage selection for Autumn 2018 that has truly been loved by most women. You will see it everywhere. In coats, skirts, trousers and shirts. The most dominating shades are gray and brown.

TREND #5

Sexy satin is back in a variety of colors. Satin dresses and tops in a straight line to flatter every shape and to highlight the femininity of every woman. We saw it with many designs such as a ties, a short sleeve,  long sleeve and more.

Highlight What is Hot for Mid Fall 2016 - What are the trending fall colors and popular fashion choices - Camury Reporting





Can you believe we're already Mid November? Time flies and autumn leaves keep falling. 

The snow will be here soon ... But there's still time to dust off our inventory, clean that boot full of cobwebs and get out that  forgotten jacket, to remake new looks for the season.

Let’s see what some of the talented designers in SL have prepared for the fall 


- Hidden hands: the clothes’ sleeves are long, hiding avatar hands. Hands can also be covered by gloves that accompany the arm’s extension.
- 70’s and 80’s Retro: a continuation of 70’s trend, with flare pants, floral dresses, turtleneck, shoulder pads and leather. The stamps feature tribal, ethnic, gypsy and Peruvian boho styles. Take the opportunity to use strong colors, like orange, yellow and vinyl.  Fringe is also in high demand.



- Exposed bust: the bust is exposed openly, with transparency or naked effects.
- Unisex: unisex style provides skirts for men and suits for women.
- Overlays: overlays are fashionable, with the use of skirts over thick tights or long trousers.
- Military uniform: the military uniform keeps going on strong, with the military officer’s coat with double button.


 - Color: Prints all over is the autumn theme, not only through the usual colors such as leopards or tigers, but also in cheerful shades like green, blue and yellow.

 - Black and White Stripe: black and white stripes will wrap many fall fashion looks and will show up in pants, shirts and coats.


- Pink Color: This color was consecrated as one of the most important colors of fall fashion. Pieces such as pleated skirts, culottes and ballet flats will be the must-haves of this style. The  color pink can be used in a full look or combined with gray, beige, blue and mustard yellow, creating a mix of ingenuity and sensuality.

- Covers: The covers, pelerines and ponchos are also in fall fashion.


In fall fashion everything can overlap, merge and mix, ie, creativity and irreverence are the watchwords.

Different looks have their places: the romantic Victorian, the grim Gothic, the hard military,the sweet ballerina, the glamorous diva, the demure schoolgirl - all these styles have their place on stage without any restriction, so choose your own and have fun!

FALL FASHION TRENDS- WHATS COLORS AND TRENDS ARE GOOD FOR THIS SEASON- Camury Reporting…



Fashion trends for fall 2015 are inspired by the 60s. It is tradition in fashion to determine a color that represents the year. In 2015, the hue “ Marshala”  also known as maroon and accent colors seems to be the trend for fall and winter. Designers in Second Life are creating fashion in these inspired trends and colors during the cold seasons.


Here are some Fashions trending now
Demin
Denim never goes out of style. This material can be used for dresses, jackets, and jeans during the autumn and winter seasons. The denim fabrics give the look a more stripped and sporty style and is a great option, comfortable and practical.


Gothic
The Gothic trend is still popular in SL and is back in style for Fall/Winter 2015. It seems to have a new romanticism about it. Dark colors, crosses and veils are an integral part of this style as well as skulls and Victorian style jewelry.
The punk style is also very appreciated in SL. Its return is was evident in fashion trends for autumn 2015, where the black color is predominant. The plush (imitating animal skins) and vinyl brings more charm to the punk style.
•  T-shirts and tops have prints, bands and street symbols.
• The mixture of colors, materials and print, are always contrasting, even mixed in the same outfit ensemble.
• Accessories such as boots and shoes with metal inserts, bracelets, necklaces and belts with applications and chains are essential in this style.

 Taxi to Some shops where you can find clothes, punk and gothic:
Corvus
L&B


Metallic shine
One more reminder that the style of the 60s is on the rise is the presence of metallic luster. Autumn and Winter trends bring details in gold, silver and other metallic colors in both dresses and accessories, as well as in footwear. With the coming of new textures SL offers beautiful metallic options.

Footwear
Speaking of footwear, the knee high boots is back. If you want to be trendy, do not hesitate to buy boots with lace or shiny vinyl. The high and medium boots are also trendy and will enhance your style with a retro charm, perfect for the season.

Taxi to shop where you can find clothes, metallized:

FASHIONNATIC


Plaid Fabrics
Plaid has been popular in previous Fall and Winters Seasons. It is still fashionable for 2015.  This trend can be seen in pants, dresses and even accessories like headbands and scarves.
One piece of plaid is enough to spice up your look. For example: if you are wearing a pair of plaid pants try pairing it with a shirt without patterns, or use neutral color to balance your look.


 Taxi to Shop, where you can find Demin, sweaters and Plaid
Gizza Creations



Sweaters
Who said that comfort cannot be fashionable? The sweaters is invading the catwalks, complete with embroidery, textures mixes and creative prints. To make the look even more comfortable, the maxi style is in fashion this autumn and Winter. You can find beautiful sweaters in different stores in SL.



Whatever your style is, be aware of what is trending now and enjoy the season!

Fashion-Crazy for Hair-Becca Drascol Reporting

When we think fashion, we think outfits, shoes, boots and the like. Some people tend to change and buy outfits often, as a passion, perhaps even an addiction. I know I for one am a shoes and boots fanatic. And it becomes easy to be crazy for hair when in Second life we can change hair style, color and even the cut by simply a click of a button in our inventory, or simply buying something new. In real life we can't dye our hair from blonde to deep red and back to blonde in just minutes...but in SL we can do whatever we wish with our hair as long as someone in our world creates it. As SL grows and creators do too, new HUDS make it possible to have even the wildest of looks. From black hair with purple streaks, to blue hair with a pink tipped ponytail all done with just one HUD sometimes.
With easy ways to constantly change up your "do," Second Life not only makes hair fashion fun but also simple  for even a beginner. One can so easily become a hair fanatic for many reasons. And with all the possibilities, I decided to ask residents some fun hair questions.

How often do you change hair?(not buy a new one but how often do you change one style to another from inventory)

VividDreamz Resident: Once per two weeks. I love changing it up with each outfit or every other outfit! Every hairstyle tells my mood and style that day or week.

Havenly1 Resident: Maybe twice a week, depending the outfit.

How often do you buy new hair?

VividDreamz Resident: Not very often maybe once a month because when I do buy hair I tend to buy more than one style or color.

Havenly1 Resident: Every 2 months maybe if I see something I like.

Do you prefer wild hair such as wild colors and looks? Or more glam or reserved looks?

VividDreamz Resident: Slightly all the above because some outfits are wild, some are classy., some are revealing which I like to wear something more glamorous. As I stated above each style defines my mood and style that day or week, depending on outfit.

Havenly1 Resident: Hmm I prefer more Glam looks or Reserved, but also like to go wild depending on what I’m doing :)
Havenly1 Resident: Hard question lol.

About how much do you usually spend on a new hair? Do you buy one color or fatpacks?

VividDreamz Resident: L$200 to L$400 is about the range I spend.I buy one color but in separate packs because the fatpacks tend to run higher in price than buying them individually  when I dont want fatpacks, but if I end up buying a fatpack it could range more higher priced like L$800 or more then L$1.2K.

Havenly1 Resident: One color and around 100 - 250

Do you change your hair to fit the occasion? For an event?

VividDreamz Resident: I tend to change my hair depending on color of my outfit or style of my outfit. Unless event is wild hair or something to do with hair is the only time I change it for an event. But also for a wedding I would change it for that occasion to something more classy or an updo!

Havenly1 Resident: Because I stay blonde,except one nice long red hair one I stay the most in one color.

Hair Fanatic or just hair fun…

Rather you’re a fanatic or just have fun changing styles or only change as Second Life grows and changes with the times, I think hair can be fun, crazy, bright, wild, glam or reserved. I firmly believe hair is a part of fashion especially in SL because we can freely change it on a whim to fit our needs and or wants. Unlike real life where a bad haircut has to grow back, with SL one is free to simply delete bad hair and pick a new one. Are you hair crazy? A fanatic? Or is hair just a fun part of your sense of fashion and style? I think rather you change hair every outfit or linger with one color and style for months on end, we all love hair.

There is a Saying that April Showers bring May Flowers…but do they also bring Women’s Spring Fashion?- Rere Sandalwood Reporting…


There are three creators out there that would shout an enthusiastic “yes!” to this question.  These creators are Insatia Jharls, who is the creator behind ISBJ; B Y T E (bytedreams.slade), the creator behind Second Nature and Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ (toomuch4u2, creator of Queen Designs.

 All three are one of many creators that have their fingers on the pulse of spring fashion.  Insatia Jharls, for instance, specializes in the creation of skins, makeup and much more since 2009.  When asked about current SL Spring makeup trends, she explained: “Current spring makeup trends in SL are displaying brightened pastel colors along with a light airy look…just the right amount of a cotton candy pink or light purple lipstick and just barely there eyeshadow.”


Jharls also says that the trends in SL reflect RL makeup trends too.  She explains, “More women in RL are expressing themselves this spring with bright colored hair, along with bright lipstick and eyeshadow colors…and yes, these trends are reflecting a hint of RL trends, too…”

In keeping with the current Spring-related trends, Jharls’ contends that her Jonquel skin line is not only the newest item available at ISBJ, but that it firmly represents the freshest Spring related makeup available.  Jharls explains, “Our Jonquel eyeliners and lipsticks are a great representation of spring [because they have] the right amount of pastel colors for a day out and [include] perfect reds and warm colors for a night out in spring.”


Besides Spring being an aided motivation in the creation of her skin and makeup like, Jharls also creates skins and makeup that are not only high quality, but also specialize in ethnic skin tones. “The market” she explains, “…is lacking and I got inspired to help the women in SL express themselves accurately and flawlessly no matter what their race may be.”


Spring Clothing:  What’s Trending Now?
B Y T E (bytedreams.slade) let the SL Enquirer know that in addition to bright colors, Spring also conveys a sense of renewal.  In keeping with Spring’s sense of renewal, B Y T E recently added what she describes as a “one-piece athletic cut swimsuit that has a tribal flame motif on the front,” to her marketplace page.  As inspiration, B Y T E relies on jelly-bean influenced colors in the creation of her athletic cut swimsuit.  When asked why jellybeans, B Y T E responds, “Now what is more spring than jellybeans and flowers? I also released a 3 piece set and 2 other swimsuits prior to this one…and all these releases come with multi-color huds and appliers. I love giving my customers options J!”

Yet despite giving her customers options, B Y T E refuses to break down what specific trends by category…and perhaps by season.  “I shy away from trends,” she explains.  “Trends” she continues, “mean ‘same or similar to something else’ to me.  So I don’t buy, dress, or design based on anyone else’s prescribed fashion trends.” With this in mind, B Y T E contends that she wants her customers to create their own fashion trends via the purchase of her creations.  She explains, “I want my customers to wear my clothing and create their own trend J!”


As an SL clothing creator, B Y T E specializes in creating clothes for female avatars, and has done so for close to three years.  Based on her experience, she finds that her Horizon dress is her best seller.  She explains, “It started out as just a sexy dress with a flexible skirt/hem for classic avatars; when implants like Lolas and Phatazz came along, I included appliers with this dress and it took off flying!”  When asked what made the Horizon dress unique, B Y T E says, “I think people like this dress because of its combination of transparent and opaque fabric, making for a very sexy dress that reveals and covers at the same time J!”

Thus, in addition to vibrant colors, customers are vying for clothing that is sexually appealing, yet still demure enough to be considered sophisticated and unique.  B Y T E adds, “I would say the 'fatpacks' as huds are the biggest and most important trend right now.  Appliers have become more of a staple item instead of a trend - particularly for non-mesh pieces.”


Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ (toomuch4u2) Talks Spring Fashion
When asked about SL Spring Fashion trends, Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ (toomuch4u2), let’s the readers of SL Enquirer know that items that show off those mesh bodies are what is in.  Not only does she echo the vibrant color sentiment mentioned by B Y T E and Insatia Jharls, she adds that additional accessories designed to enhance clothing also echo the renewel spirit of Spring.  She explains, “My newest fashion item in terms of clothes would be peekaboo dresses in vibrant colors…complete with matching clutches accented in diamonds.  The whole look lends itself to an afternoon brunch…that also transitions over into evening wear.  Afterall, Spring represents color color color after a dismal winter!”
Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ comes from a family of creators, and has been creating fashion since 2012.  She specializes in jewelry, specifically earrings, necklaces, waist chains, bracelets…the whole gamut.  She also creates dresses, and has her hand on the pulse of what is trending now.  She explains, “Dresses with cutouts are very popular and trending now!  A glimpse of midriff or a panel opened in the back for a *wow* effect is hot!” She further contends that SL Clientale can also see these SL fashion trends reflected in RL, and admits that she relies on the RL runways for inspiration.  She explains, “I love fashion monitoring in rl; it’s refreshing to be able to offer the same looks in not just my store, but to see it in others also…”



Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ adds that her own knack for fashion inspires her SL line, too.  “Honey” she says, “I’m a fashionista in rl….I inspire myself!!! Extravaganza Eleganzaaaa!! Hahaha!!!!”

In contrast to B Y T E, Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ was willing to break down SL current fashion trends as follows:



·         Shoes.  According to Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ, the wedge is still holding court!  She explains, “Right now, customers are vying for shoes with daring patterns, as well as stilettos that incorporate accents of gold, silver and diamonds!  They desire to exude wealth, but at a reasonable price…” When asked her reaction to this current shoe trend, Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ loudly exclaims, “Ring it in baby…ring it in!”


·         Skin and Makeup.   While Insatia Jharls and Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ both agree that bright colors are what is trending for Spring, Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ adds, ”A nude lip is still trending, too…as well as bright colors like oranges, magentas, etc.”


·         Jewelry.  Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ wants all SL Fashionistas to know, that If you want to know what is trending in Spring jewelry, it would be best to take a look at what is trending in Queen Designs first!  “I have based my designs…” she explains, “…on jewelry fashions featured on the popular television series ‘Empire’!  If you watch that show, you will see delicate golds, as well as diamonds are what is hot for Spring.” Nonetheless, Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ cautions that jewelry should be worn in tasteful moderation.  She adds, “You don’t want to overwhelm your attire with jewelry, because jewelry is meant to accentuate your avatar, not overpower it J!”   To better understand what Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ means, check out her BooBoo Kitty Line of Jewelry currently being featured at Queen Designs!  She explains, “…the BooBoo Kitty Line of Jewelry is a definite must see, must have! In fact, it will be debuting at the P.H.A.T Fashion Fair that will be happening from April 29 to May 3!”  This, along with the debut of her *Jasmine* Line will be offered at a substantial discount during the P.H.A.T Fashion Fair, so please don’t miss out!



Three Creators Talk Spring Fashion for Mesh Bodies
Many may be pained by the current Mesh Bodies fashion trend, but it is not a trend that is going away anytime soon.  As Insatia Jharls explains, “Mesh bodies are a growing trend that is gaining more followers every day. The fashion related to mesh bodies is also gaining popularity because the clothes are very high quality, vibrant, and ultra-realistic…”
In keeping with the newness of Spring, mesh bodies not only rely on clothing that is bold and vibrant, but that also accentuate the mesh’s shape.  “Fashions…” Explains Jharls, “…are created specifically for a mesh body….it is meant to enhance the look of the mesh shape, [so] the fit is very accurate. In contrast, fashions with mesh materials won't necessarily fit the avatar shape to the best of abilities of fashions created for the mesh body.”

B Y T E adds to this analysis by explaining, “….mesh material is the extra texture layer SL built in, this layer tends to work on objects and clothing, including mesh objects like mesh bodies.  It allows for slightly more 3d-like detail in a textured item, be it clothing, or buildings, or whatever.” As if to echo this sentiment, Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ contends, “The biggest offering that fashion for mesh bodies has is offering women who choose to have fuller and more beautiful bodies a lot of wonderful choices for fashion.  Like regular mesh clothing, be mindful that [clothes for mesh bodies] are still designed with mesh material….however, they simply offer appliers as well.”


All appliers and mesh bodies aside, this year’s Women SL Spring Fashion Spring introduces boldness, as well as a sense of renewal to customers who seek to embrace the latest fashion trends!
