Jo’s Fashion Column BAHAHA!

I’ve never read a fashion blog on purpose and I really have no sense for it.  And I’m pretty sure everything I post here has been on fashion blogs for years.  But I thought it would be fun anyway.  I’m just going to post the popular trends I see as I wander the streets of London.

Joggers. YUP. Pants with elastic at the top and bottom. I want some. Now. (But wearing them with heels sort of defeats the purpose of their comfort, if you ask me.)

Picture

Jumpsuits for days. I want one of these too, but really, how annoying when you use the bathroom, right?

Picture

These. Everywhere.

Picture

Especially with cut-offs.

Okay so I DO know that the peplum trend is, like, SOO five years ago. But it takes awhile for fashion to trickle down to us ordinary folks.

Picture

See through blouses, and we’re not talkin’ over a cute DownEast cami or wonder-t. These are like the go-to piece for business women.

Picture

The crop-top and the high waist- but not necessarily together. (Hit two birds with one stone here.)

Picture

Harem pants. Also known as Hammer pants. Baggy up top, low crotch seam and tapered at the ankle. Get a pair now and consider yourself HIP.

Picture

Men’s capris – a European staple.

This is all strictly based on observation so don’t take me too seriously.  But I also have to admit that as I Googled these outfits I felt validated in my observations of their popularity.   And to my credit there is one fashion trend I’ve totally nailed and that is maxi skirts/dresses.  But those are just so doggone convenient and comfortable it’s no wonder they are taking over the world.  Watch out Crocs- the maxi skirt has moved in.  (Yes, I know, the maxi skirt moved in, like so five years ago.)  And kudos to my fashionable friends and sisters who actually own and wear some of these products.  (Except the see-through blouse.  I still think that’s just tacky.)

I almost forgot! Shorts with tights/nylons. I’m pretty sure I did this when I was a kid. So ahead of my time…
