Queer Fashion | Streets of the World, Trends Across the Globe – What are the 5 trends that unite the world? Read on and see.
Stockholm and New York. Singapore and Cape Town. Paris and Hong Kong. All these places are separated by thousands of miles and have distinctive cultural differences, and yet they seemingly share a collective fashion consciousness.
Maybe it is the Internet and social media that allows for the fashion trends to spread widely and rapidly, or maybe the Internet allows everyone from any corner of the globe to tap into a singular fashion zeitgeist.
Who knows? All we know is that it is this same technological wonder that allows us to peep through the lenses of street style photographers all over the world, and here are the top 5 trends we saw from the streets of Berlin to the streets of L.A.
The flat footwear of choice is currently the sneaker. From Jordans to Isabel Marant sneaker wedges, from Nike Dunks to Vans slip-ons, and even onto the now ubiquitous designer sneakers like Givenchy and Louboutin, sneakers are having a major fashion moment worldwide.
Say adios to platform pumps and overly embellished heels of the early to mid 2000s, this year is all about the minimalist sandal. With a single thin strap over the toes and single ankle strap, this sky-high shoe is the weapon of choice of chic women everywhere.
Not the velour kind, mind you. These are luxurious lounge pants that are well tailored, and more often than not worn cropped close to the ankles. The better to show off the shoes, you see.
Print on Print
Gone are the days when everyone was told to wear prints with basics. Everyone is getting creative with mixing florals with plaids, stripes with tartans. It’s time you get in on that action too.
Minimalist and monochromatic is a common street style battle cry. Fashionistas all over the globe are letting silhouettes and textures do the talking as the dress in head to toe grey or all black everything.
