EDGY TREND

If you’ve been near the malls lately you know that it’s all about SPIKES and STUDS: on shoes, accessories, and clothing.

              

  
Once a mainstay of 80s punk fashion and music, the punk rebellion theme is making a come back for this Fall and Winter fashion.

TREND: Elbow Patches

For a while now we have slowly seen the come back of elbow patches: in shirts, jackets, sweaters … for men just like for women. This trend is no longer associated with the elderly and college professors. I’m sure your idea of elbow patches is that of an old grandpa sitting on his rocking chair smoking his pipe and wearing an old sweater with brown leather patches.

Well, no. Nowadays elbow patches come in all kinds of styles, colors and even shapes. Like this gray sweaters with black heart shaped elbow patches available at ASOS (asos.com).

We are seeing this trend develop right here in Ayiti. Fashionisto Renald was spotted wearing a nice white and blue button down shirt with blue elbow patches. He coordinated his outfit with a navy blue pants and light blue loafers.

Other Fashionistos spotted wearing elbow patches in Ayiti:

Rock Neons in the Fall

NEONS were a definite MUST have this summer! From fluorescent YELLOW t-shirts, to radiant PINK lips, NEONS were everywhere!!

Fall is here but some of us are still attached to our vivid items and can’t seem to let go. NEWSFLASH: it is OK to wear those bright colors during the cold months! It is most certainly not an issue for those of us living in the Caribbean, but for the rest of the world getting ready to face the cold, here are a few tips to lightening up your outfit!

1. Mix it with Black: Wear bright neon pants with a black cardigan or black top like Bianka Joseph or Jessica Alba

2. Give your attire a pop of color by adding neon accessories like funky colored shades, nails or with statement jewelry like this necklace by a Haitian Artisan

3.  Carry a bright  and colorful purse to lift up your otherwise dark outfit

4. Keep it Classy just like Katy Perry with her yellow crocodile blouse toped with a gray blazer
