2006 Spring - The Beatnik
The Beat Generation
(American writers of the '50s who influenced the '60s
) and Sputnik
satellite) spawned the term "Beatnik." The Beatnik look, also known as the New Mod
, is influenced by the Mod fashion of the '60s. It's all about monochromes
) - turtlenecks, skinny pants
, miniskirts, striped tops and dresses, opaque stockings and fishnets
, go-go boots and ballet flats. As with any trend, don't overdo the Beatnik cuz you'll look like a zebra
2006 Spring - The Victoriana
This is an edgier
version of the fashion worn during England
's Victorian era
(1837-1901). With hints of Goth
and Punk, Victoriana is soft and romantic without the frou-frou. The trend includes lace blouses
, ruffled sleeves and necklines, tiered skirts
and ribbons and bows
, which are popping up at the waist and back. Pull off the look by pairing a Victorian blouse with skinny jeans and flats.
2006 Spring - The Nautical
The Nautical trend gets its inspiration from sailors
- think of the colors navy, white and red, sea symbols
like shells, anchors and pirates
, and lots of stripes
! But stick to one stripey item
at a time cuz you don't want to go overboard.
2006 Spring - The Tomboy
If Victoriana is too girly
for you, then you'll like the Tomboy look of oversized shirts
, vests, suspenders and trouser-style shorts. Don't bother dishing out big bucks cuz you can just dig around in your dad's or BF's closet
. Find a big, baggy dress shirt, wrap a wide belt around your waist
- not your hips - and wear it with jeans
and a vest. If the shirt is long enough, make it into a shirt dress
