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!
Still undecided on what to wear for this season’s festivities? Well, you’re in for a treat! We put together four fabulous looks using pieces from our recent collections, just for you.
For a Holiday Bash with Your Clique
Choose one of the season’s best colors—like red—and build your look on that. You can try our red ruffled Calabria skirt, which is a fun piece you can party in. Pair it with a neutral top like the Greolieres, which features ties on either sides for a hint of sexiness. Accessorize with the Hopper necklace, Chandigarh Banjara clutch, gold heels, and you’re good to go.
For Christmas Day
This day calls for a celebration, so glam it up with prints and textures! We matched our blue Sanlucar one shoulder top with the Karakorum printed midi for a graphic feast. Ease on the mix of volumes by wearing sleek, nude pumps with this look.
For a Holiday Trip
Spending the holidays in an island far, far away? Pack the Rosalind maillot with you and transform it from swimwear to something you can lounge in. Wear it with the Ifrane linen wrap pants, which is another versatile piece you can play with. Carry a roomy tote like the Balqash Suzani for storing all your trip essentials in. Accessorize and protect your hair with the colorful Azuay scarf, and don’t forget your trusty pair of sunnies!
For the New Year’s Eve Countdown
Welcome 2017 with a unique, party-ready outfit that will make heads turn! Try the Rizo, our fresh spin to the much coveted off-the-shoulder silhouette. Show off those toned gams and wear it with the Timi tie side mini, and finish off your look with our festive Nagpur Banjara clutch. If you feel like your décolletage is too bare, you can always turn to the Hopper necklace to adorn your look.
Take inspiration from these holiday-ready looks and seek the pieces before they disappear! Have fun styling your STU pieces and don’t forget to tag us on Instagram with the hashtags, #seeksoughtfound and #seektheuniq.
