Fashion is cyclical, it’s a fact. There are hardly ever completely brand-new trends that surface in this exclusive world of high-powered designers. So it’s no surprise that with the dawn of a new decade, fashion trends from previous years have come back into vogue. Though we spent years ridiculing the dress-over-jeans look that frequented the red carpet during the 2000s, these early years are making a big comeback. However, as the years progress, so does our society and the ways in which trends spread.

From Fit Pics to Fashion Week, Personal Style Is Better Than Any Trend

If the fall 2021 shows prove anything, it’s that emotion and poetry are back. At Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière, a designer who popularized total-look style with his stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé in the aughts and teens, pivoted to a more melange look, coupling tulle skirts with hoodies, crystal embroideries with leather jackets, and poet tops with mannish blazers. Over at Ghesquière’s alma mater Balenciaga, Demna Gvasalia continues to reflect true street style back at his customers, playing up strange, sometimes surreal, pairings like medieval armor with jeans and sweatpants. Julien Dossena’s Paco Rabanne collection was glitzy in a real way, slip dresses with boyish coats and fluffy kerchiefs. Marine Serre’s upcycled tartans look more like the way real people might clash plaids than the refined Prince of Wales checks popular in the early 2010s. Collina Strada styled its collection in the vein of its designer, Hillary Taymour, while Ibrahim Kamara, arguably

Celebrate Rihanna’s style evolution ahead of her birthday

Rihanna is known not only for her incredible music, but also for her enduring sense of style. The versatility of her looks has turned the singer into a fashion icon. She even owns her own company, Fenty Beauty, which has helped to make her the world’s richest female musician, according to Forbes

So where did Rihanna’s stylish journey begin? Born in Barbados, Rihanna sold clothes as child, working with her father in Bridgetown. However, her passion for fashion was put on a hold, after Rihanna was spotted by music agents and flown out to the United States. After signing with Jay-Z, the singer started to become a star. It was music first, with big success following the release of her debut album, ‘Music of the Sun.’

Rihanna’s interest in clothes was reignited in 2011, when she announced her first fashion venture with Armani. Two years later, Rihanna worked

How Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams Reignited Tennis Style

NEARLY ONE YEAR into a global shutdown with nary a live fashion show or red carpet, tennis champions Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka drew a record viewership for their distinctly stylish Feb. 17 semifinal match of the 2021 Australian Open. I stayed up late to watch the two stars play, along with over a million other fans around the world. Aside from the women’s athletic prowess, what struck me was their confident, individualistic outfits, both by

Nike.

After our collective year of sagging sweatpants, Ms. Williams wore a one-legged, Florence Griffith-Joyner-inspired catsuit in hot pink and black, while Ms. Osaka, the match’s victor, sported a dark, camo-printed one-piece under a neon-orange skirt. Starched tennis whites these were not.

“It’s insane,” said Caitlin Thompson, publisher of the independent quarterly magazine Racquet, of the reinvigorated focus on the sport. “You turn on the TV and you see these amazing, young [people],

The moment you think you’ve captured it, the world around you shifts and, more often than not, you’re left behind, breathlessly trying keep up with the
