Everyone knows this season’s hottest trend is pastels. They’re the most fun way to ring in the warm weather, but looking like a human crayola box is only fun for so long. Eventually, the novelty of wearing colors wears off, and you want to go back to black.
Leather quietly emerged as part of this season’s wardrobe. Designer Derek Lam released a leather skirt earlier this season for Saks and Neiman Marcus, and Altuzzara released a white leather dress with a flower panel.
Despite being a part of the high fashion spring/summer line, the leather trend went to the wayside because it couldn’t be easily adopted by lower end stores. Brightly colored materials are easily integrated into more affordable stores like H&M and Forever 21, but they couldn’t produce a quality leather product comparable to the high fashion leather.
Check out the local consignment stores, like Second Time Around on 17th and Chestnut streets, for inexpensive leather goods. Pair your favorite leather piece with a hot lace for a night on the town.
Yep, it’s official, kids are now being added to best dressed lists. GQ has included the eight-year-old Romeo Beckham, a.k.a. the son of David and Victoria Beckham, in their list of the best dressed men of Britain. He’s number 26, but don’t worry, even though he beat out many “actual men,” he still hasn’t topped his pops, who comes in at number 16. Does anyone find this weird? Inappropriate? Ridiculous? Hilarious? Personally, it just made me laugh—a lot—and ponder how a magazine like GQ couldn’t conjure up just ONE MORE GROWN-ASS MAN to add to the list. Instead, they had to add a tot, who is obviously dressed by his mother, to a list that includes men like Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Robert Pattinson and Princes William and Harry.
So good job Victoria, you somehow managed to get on a list of the best dressed men in the country, it’s just that your handiwork is being shown via your 8-year-old child.
