There have been many new and interesting fashion trends during the 21st century, many of which inspired by famous musical figures or, as expected, fashion designers. Any fashion conscious individual will recognize and respect the sources of these trends, and designers like such as Ted Baker and Calvin klein have taken these current trends and made them more relevant by casting their discerning designer’s eye over them and tweaking the designs.
Music is highly influential in the world of fashion. One of the trends of the 21st century has been directly influenced by rock stars. Indie music, along with the know -how of reputable fashion houses, adopted a style incorporating military jackets, tight fitting jeans and shoes such as Hubert boots or winkle pickers. Some of the quirky fashion by Ted Baker involved taking these designs, such as the military coat, and incorporating a wraparound aspect, or deviating the pattern of the buttons to give the piece that individual tweak.
The advent of the recent popularity of Jazz in the mainstream has helped introduce an exciting and fresh retro fashion trend. Flowered patterns, neck scarves and traditional looking clothing are complimented by 50′s style makeup, hair and accessories. These components with the overview of fashion designers result in a unique new fashion trend.
Certain artists in the popular music genre have elevated the accessibility of experimental and expressive high fashion. Some of these outfits may seem too risqué, or maybe a bit (Lady) gaga, but the advantages of this type of clothing can inspire both the wearer and the designer. These outfits are almost pantomime in their appearance and are perfect if you’re in the mood for fun, especially at parties, shows and balls.
Retro, as ever, has been a feature of fashion in the 21st century and iconic styles from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s have made a comeback. Denim jackets and flamboyant shirts are commonly seen in shop windows, while t-shirts with images of legends from the last 100 years are also regularly seen.
