Finding the best apparel for our lovely members is our mission here at Tog + Porter, and the Las Vegas Magic tradeshow is the place to go to find the best of the best. At the Las Vegas Convention Center and Mandalay Bay I got to check out all the exciting new trends for fall, winter and beyond. Here are just a few of the standout styles that’ll be hitting stores in the coming months:
Patterned Bottoms: Although denim and khaki are wardrobe staples that will never go out of style, let’s admit it — sometimes jeans can get a little dull. To add some pizazz to your bottom half, designers like Sanctuary have created new pant styles in unique textures and patterns. Paisley, stripes and floral prints decorate knit bottoms, offering an alternative to the typical.
Crop tops: Don’t worry, this up-and-coming style is not a total flashback of the ’80′s. This updated look can be sophisticated and work appropriate when made with luxurious fabrics, like silk and charmeuse.
Slouchy Pants: Also referred to as harem pants, slouchy bottoms are this year’s leggings. Almost every designer I previewed offered a version of this relaxed fit style. Loose-fitting in the bum and crotch region, harem pants comes in a variety of fabrics and are great for both work and play. But be warned: This style can look more saggy than sexy if they’re not done right, so make sure you have a friend (or T+P stylist) present to offer honest feedback on fit.
Not only did I get to preview all the exciting designs for the upcoming seasons, I also discovered some fabulous new designers to add to our list. Get ready T+P ladies..some amazing new product is coming your way!
