2011 Fashion Colors- What’s New?

Color is personal.  We each have a color that we go to when we want to feel great. It is a color that we love, and you will see it in your wardrobe every season. But we each love to see what colors are forecast for the coming season. After all, we need change and we want to know how we can add new colors to our current wardrobe without throwing out our current favorites.
Honeysuckle InspirationWe turn to the Pantone Color Institute because they are the most widely recognized global authority on color.  They uncover what the most important seasonal color trends are in fashion by finding out what hues have provided inspiration to the designers of NY Fashion Week. Their report is used as a reference tool for those connected to fashion, retail, and the media. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Institute, and her team make their choices based on current events, psychology, economics, consumer behavior and socioeconomic issues.

“We look around not only at what’s happening in the news and the socioeconomic issues of today. With so much going on and people still very concerned with losing their jobs, we chose a color we felt would be energy-provoking and uplifting.”

Why Merino Wool?

Merino WoolThe holidays are behind us and hopefully we are all doing our best to stay warm and prepare ourselves for the cold winter that still lurks ahead. Staying warm is a must but of course, we do not want to sacrifice fashion!  Merino wool is an excellent solution for your winter wardrobe.

So why Merino wool?
Merino is a type of sMerino Sheepheep that is bred predominantly for its luxurious, soft fleece. Spain was most noted for its fine wool, particularly between the 12th and 16th centuries. Merino sheep have their origins in North Africa and the foundation flocks were most likely introduced into Spain at the end of the 12th century.  Spain controlled the wool market for centuries, banning the export of their prized sheep. The breed was named Merino after the royal sheep inspectors, ‘los Merinos.’

LONG, LEAN, and LEGGY

Monochromatic DressingAs I pour through fashion magazines and watch all of the beautiful models on television, I longingly admire their tiny waists and long leggy looks. Although most of us don’t live on carrots and lettuce and aren’t six feet tall, there are some fashion tricks that the professionals use to achieve the long leggy look.
At Chico’s they call it “column” dressing. That is, dressing in monochromatic colors from head to toe.  You match your top to your pants or skirt and then match your tights to the rest of the outfit. It creates a continuous column of color, and interest is added through using different textures and great scarves and jewelry. And you don’t stop there.

SIZZLING RUNWAY STRIPES

Who watched the annual Victoria Secret catwalk show Tuesday night on CBS?

If you did not have a chance to watch this, check it out as it was incredibly creative and upbeat with one over-the-top outfit after another on models that are a far cry from the average female.  However, the show served its purpose of creating controversy around the topic of sex, lingerie, skinny models, and extreme designs that make you cringe, laugh, and wonder how they came up with those designs from the ridiculous to some that were actually quite stunning.  Of course, we at Foot Traffic were quite pleased to see some of the models strutting down the runway wearing one of our favorite type of  over-the-knee socks, the rainbow stripe. Stripes rule this season so check us out and see our collection of not only the OTK rainbow socks but also our thigh highs and tights.

By the way, we don’t carry the wings—just the awesome stripes!
