Although trends are a phenomena seen worldwide, the way they are worn from continent to continent and city to city are incredibly different. Depending on socialization, climate, lifestyle and other cultural factors, they influence even the subtlest difference in styling.
Thanks to technology, the barriers have begun to be broken down. Apps like Instagram allows us to take a sneak peek into the life of a minimalistic, French girl or the laid back vibes of an Aussie babe. Street style photogs and bloggers across the globe capture what used to be exclusive moments to share with the fashion community no matter the location. You no longer have to be in one of the “fashion hubs” to make your mark on the world of fashion.
To exemplify this, I’ve taken one of my favorite trends for fall 2017, velvet, and utilized my resources to search how fashionistas worldwide are making this trend their own.
