Firstly, what is a micro trend?
Well, according to the Wise Geek - While subtle and sometimes unnoticed, trends of this type can exert an impact that is experienced long after those trends have subsided - so...basically it's a trend that starts off small and then might have a huge impact eventually...
Lets look at 3 micro trends that are going to make a huge impact come Spring/Summer 2015. Traditionally within the fashion industry, if an item or a look appears on the runway 3 times or more its considered a trend for the upcoming season.
3 micro trends to embrace now are:
1. The mini handbag
Not practical at all and unable to fit anything more than a lipstick, a credit card and maybe your phone, but looks sooo cute! Maybe best saved for a night out...
All the big houses are doing them with teeny tiny versions of the original bag, like Chanel, Prada, Celine and Mulberry to name a few...
2. Bejewelled collars
This trend seems a bit prim and proper, but with lots of bling! Think Peter Pan collars or pointy collars with as much embellishment as you can manage and then simply wear it with a white t-shirt and jeans...or be totally different and bling up your jacket collar.
3. Big belts
The bigger the better! As seen on the runways of Versace and D&G. Now, please don't go for the heavyweight champion of the world look and to prevent looking like a Rocky wannabe, keep the focus to one part of the belt e.g. if the buckle is big make sure the belt itself is medium or small width, if the belt is wide make sure the other features remain minimalistic...confusing I know!
Belt your jacket or shirt for a modern look.
Embrace just one of these 3 micro trends and you could soon be starting something everyone around you will want to follow!
