The Spring shows have JUST premiered but that doesn’t mean we can’t start dissecting the new trends and predicting what will be in style for next season. One of styles we have been noticing lately has been the shapeless silhouette, which we ask you… Chic or Not?
The boxy look of these new shirts has shown up on the SS11 runways of Prada, Celine, and Stella McCartney, no doubt big names in the fashion industry. Do these major design houses have this look right? We think so. The shapeless look of the boxy silhouette is new, refreshing, minimal and can verge on the futuristic. This look doesn’t go without it’s negative qualities though, it has the tendency to look like nurse scrubs or can be very unflattering. Although this look may not work on all body types and is best suited for the boy shape (straight up and down, no waist, small hips and small bust) it lends itself to a completely new look. Not everything needs to be cinched in all the time, and this trend really showcases that boxes can look good too!
