How's it going, dear Seekers? We're almost two weeks in under the Enhanced Community Quarantine and I hope the days have been treating you well. The news in the country and around the world has been getting crazier; though we need to keep abreast on the latest, we can always take a break from all that hullabaloo.
Among other things, we like keeping you updated on fashion. STU may not be a trend-driven brand, but it is our duty to be informed on the current trends and probably apply what would best resonate with our stories, once in a while. Thus, we've rounded up five of the top Spring/Summer 2020 runway trends and its corresponding STU pieces to add to your summer staples.
Show 'Em Who's the (Stabilo) Boss
Stop them in their tracks with this vibrant, fearless trend, as seen on the Valentino runway. Dare to wear a full-on neon look, or tone it down by pairing it with neutrals. If you're not too keen on it, a fun accessory or bag like the Solano tote would suffice. Choosing clothing with subtle neon details like the Garoua wide-leg pants, are also one way to wear this trend (hit us up if you want a restock! ;p).
Guess the LWD (Little White Dress) will be this season's must-have, and we're not complaining! White dresses are such no-brainer pieces because they go with anything and everything. You can toughen up a frilly frock à la Alexander McQueen, or work a dress-over-pants sitch with our Gapa shift dress and Nelspruit palazzo pants. Freshen up a utilitarian ensemble by trying our breathtaking Trieste trench dress with nautical-inspired accessories.
Bra Tops are the New Crop Tops
As Nelly sang in 2002, "it's getting hot in herre, so take off all your clothes..."; we can't help but be reminded of it what with the 34°-36°C weather nowadays. A solution to this heat? Wear a bra top! Make the Lanvin show a reference and playfully wear it with a layered midi skirt, or go matchy-matchy with our Caucaia eyelet set. If you're feeling more relaxed but still want a modern look, take the top from the Dasi set (halter style) and match it with the Elva overlap pants.
We Made the Cut(out)
Donning this trend is a subtle way to show skin, while still maintaining that elegant demeanor. At Emilia Wickstead, the focus was on the woman's décolleté for a rebel femme, black and pink garb. Reserve the pastel Vetralla for an evening affair or wedding, complete with a sleek bun. As for that postponed beach getaway, take the Ugento linen dress with you for a day-to-night outfit.
Reserved this for last because we're too familiar with it, that calling it a "trend" no longer counts. Haha! What is an STU look without the puff sleeve? It's simply basic in our style vocabulary! We're digging this tie-dye ensemble from the Isabel Marant runway for its street chic vibe. We can totally mention all our puff sleeve styles here, but we don't want you to get dizzy. Instead, we're putting the spotlight on two checkered, scene-stealing styles that could add pizazz to your closet: the Kroonstad peplum top, and the Rionegro button-down dress.
Hope this sort of news gave you fresh outfit ideas for that "bright future" we're looking forward to (after this quarantine period). Once again, stay safe and be healthy, Seekers!
