COLOR AND ACCESSORY EMPIRE

.

In this series of street trend photos, colors and accessories are the main elements I observed and combined in this series of street fashion photographs.

First, color. Playing with color is a constant theme in fashion industry. The pastely color- blue, pink and purple has been in trend since last year, and most people apply it to clothing. I think it is a good try to combine it in beauty and accessories. Other than the pastely colors, I tend to use either black and white, which has a lot to do with the background and the shadow, or bright colors, which should be both simple and eye-catching. Good color styling highlights the outfit and bad color styling destroys it.

Second, glasses. Last season, Gucci launched the “nerd chic” style. The inspiration of “The Nerdy Beauty” comes from that. The pearly hat and the bright blue color tries to add vigor to the style in order not to make the model a pure “nerd”.

Additionally, I see a strong trend for geometric glasses recently, which emphasizes a lot on the shape of the glasses. Therefore, some brands like Percy Lau breaks the traditional design, which a round or rectangular frame tightly holds the glasses, and deconstructs the geometry to give a new breath to the glasses. These elements are included in the sunglass and the plain glass I use for the models. Moreover, it is a heated trend to have jewelry design as part of the accessories, which I have the pearly hat and the glasses with some extra decoration.

The last trend I want to illustrate is unisex, meaning man and woman sharing the same type of clothes. All the tops and accessories on the male model are from my own closet, and as we can see, the clothes are mostly pretty oversized-looking, but all fit perfectly on him. The gender boundary in styling is getting more and more ambiguous.
