Lately the weather in Vancouver has been less than satisfactory, but let us not forget our elementary school cliché: “April showers bring May flowers”. So while we stay in our houses under our warm bed covers praying for some sun, let us review which trends we will be dreaming of wearing this spring (once the sun reveals itself again). Yes, you can peruse your favourite fashion magazines and instantly spy the reappearing trends in each avant-garde fashion editorial, but I’m going to show you how to wear these trends with a street style appropriation.
1) Trend: Platform Sandals
The platform sandal portrays a 1970’s sophistication and hyper femme allure. However, if you’re not looking for a soft and dainty style, try experimenting with an unexpected grunge look. This outfit is reminiscent of a Saint Laurent rocker girl ensemble you might see in a collection by Hedi Slimane.
