6 FUTURE TRENDS THAT I’M LOVING

Future trends to look out for in the next couple of years

Who talks about future trends these days? Not many, so I thought I’d discuss this topic on Grace & Coy today and share with you six items that I’m looking forward to in the future.

SHEARLING PARKA

The parka has great details that elevates your look and is a stylish androgynous silhouette. They have overstated pockets and blocks of fabrics to update the original parka to something a little more futuristic. Another new edition to a parka is the lavish wool and soft shearling. Don’t forget about the leather!

FOLK VOLUME TOP

The name says it all but the folk top now features something a little representative of this generation with it’s textured front details and minimal woven twill. A beautiful edition to the pin-tucking and pleated texture, domed shoulders and oversized sleeves.

PLUSH MIDI DRESS

The future plush midi dress made of velvet will introduce a new draping technique from the asymmetric dipped hems all the while keeping to its true tradition with the stylized belt details to further accentuate the draping effect. Expect some leather cinch elements to add an additional oomph.

FULL SHIRT DRESS

Bell shaped sleeve will not be dead in the future. The future edition will include a slight cropped sleeve that sits above the wrist to allow the bell sleeve to update a simple shirt dress. It will also feature a dropped waist to accentuate the full hemline. This is one of the future trends I am looking forward to rocking.

RAW MAXI SKIRT

Raw skirts are currently making its round in the fashion world so expect it to stick around for a little while longer as the skirts get longer and longer. The raw maxi skirt will come in a winter wool cloths with an uneven hemline and edgy raw-edges (excuse the pun). The raw edge creates a gorgeous pleated and fullness finish. With that being said, the new edition will feature pockets and who doesn’t like pockets in a skirt?

FULL CARROT-LEG

Last but not least, the full carrot leg is a great piece to take you through day and night. The new version will be structured with a fuller top and a more narrow tapered hem which is something I really like. The silhouette will be designed from boiled wool and sponged fabrics that will further enhance the carrot leg shape.

Expect to see a more revamped design on these trendy pieces in the next year or so.

Further to this, the future of fashion will have small and large designer collections that offer versatility, longevity, and most importantly sustainability and ethical practice. Pieces that fit in these four categories will be worth my money and a great investment piece. Especially if I can dress the same piece for the day time and night time which is a shopping rule in my books.

Labels will introduce elevated basics and everyday luxury as well as trans-seasonal pieces which will be inspired from the past. I also think that there will be a more personal approach to the way we dress and use “fashion” as a tool to voice our beliefs which is something I already endeavor to do on Grace & Coy and in my general daily life by changing people’s perception of a covered Muslim woman and just Muslims in general.

Fashion to me has always been a sense of purpose and a way of expressing yourself and I believe more people will see it this way in the near future too, Inshallah.

What trend are you looking forward to in the future?
