We're having a déjà vu moment with our wardrobe and we've never been happier! This is why you don't necessarily need to throw out everything in your closet because trends will come and go, and it's so much better if you're first in line to sport the big fashion comeback.


We've spotted fashion comebacks from the 70s, 80s, and 90s both on the runway and on Clozette. So if you're ready to find out which comebacks are on trend right now...read on!

Flare Pants

Move over skinny jeans because flare pants are so in this season! Unlike super fit jeans, flare pants are much more flattering as it hugs you in the right places and flares out at the bottom for a more feminine silhouette. It's another fun twist to your jeans and top combination--pair it with heels and sunnies for a sure fire hit.

The hipster has morphed into a new form called "hippie" which is not just a fashion trend but also a big movement way back in the 70s. It's the style where flowy pieces, beads, and fringe reign. To be honest, we are more than happy to welcome this trend because we've had enough of the basic and monochrome styles. It's time to add colour!    



Overalls

We all know denim is in now more than ever, but our eyes have turned a specific liking to the denim jumper. It may be a man-repellent to some but who cares if you look extremely fashionable in it? Stella McCartney, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Isabel Marant's recent collections can vouch for you. We've got your back, so go ahead and strut that overall! 



Trucker Caps

Although it's cap cousin Snapback is still happily roaming around, we can't help but smile as we witness the resurrection of the Trucker Cap in shops such as Roxy, ASOS, and even on the Marc Jacobs Runway. You may have seen this cap worn by male celebrities such as those from Laguna Beach and Punk'd host Ashton Kutcher, but it actually looks very flattering on women. It's both sporty and hipster--perfect for a sunny day companion.    



Plaid Polo

It's been a fun time playing with grid-patterned polos, but we all know that the plaid pattern is queen. Its casual and boyish charm is what makes this comeback a must-try. You can tie it around your waist, wear it in over a tank top, or on its own.

According to colour psychology: "blue is conservative and predictable, a safe and non-threatening colour, and the most universally liked colour of all, probably because it is safe and non-threatening. At the same time blue is persistent and determined to succeed in whichever endeavors it pursues." For your career-oriented days, wear a shade of blue for little luck on your side and a fresh, invigorating look.  



Fashion Icon: Blake Lively  


Your Celebrity Style match is none other than the stunning and chic actress that is Blake Lively. You may have seen her portray Serena Vanderwoodsen in Gossip Girl; and to be honest, her personal style is quite similar to the ever gorgeous Serena. She exudes an elegant confidence in whatever she wears and always dresses up with a hint of femininity. So use this month to get your style on-point and channel your inner Blake.

Singapore fans of BLANC & ECLARE can now get a piece of their favourite ready-to-wear Denim label. It will retail exclusively at Salon by Surrender and will feature the brand’s line of apparels, eyewear, fragrances and accessories.




We caught up with former Korean girl group Girls Generation member turned creative director of BLANC & ECLARE, Jessica Jung, at the brand launch last Thursday. 




Drawing inspiration from key fashion capitals of the world such as New York, Paris, Tokyo and Seoul, BLANC & ECLARE goes by a “less is more” philosophy – each design is created to transform into a fresh, ageless piece that will endure the test of time.

At the official launch held in the multi-label boutique last Thursday, the media was treated to BLANC & ECLARE’s first-ever collection, which consists of classic wardrobe staples like white t-shirts, denim shorts and jeans. Clean aesthetics with intricate detailing and muted tones were evident in the collection. They reflected the understated modern classic that is synonymous with the brand’s design direction.




BLANC & ECLARE’s signature eyewear and accessories – the very first product offerings from the brand – also made their debut in-store. Together with Clozette Creative Director Kersie, we picked our favourite eyewear pieces (named Seoul and Paris) and couldn’t resist sneaking a wefie. 





Decked out in the label’s t-shirt and denim jeans combo at the press conference, Jessica spoke about her favourite pieces from the collection, the pros and cons of working solo, as well as whether a new pair of eyewear design will be created and named after the lion city.




On her favourite pieces from the collection…


“My favourite piece is the high-waisted skinny jeans called Manhatten. It comes in two colours… the fit is the perfect Asian fit, and it holds the body perfectly. It’s very comfortable, plus because it’s high-waisted, your legs look much longer.”


On her pros and cons of working independently...


“Pros… you can make decisions on your own. You can work with your team – I have a great team of people and staff around me – (and) it’s easier to communicate and work things out. Cons… I don’t know about cons! I haven’t been seeing any cons lately.”





On her top priority as a creative fashion designer...


“Well, it depends on what it is. For example, (for) sunglasses, I thought comfort comes first because… for Asians, the nosepieces are always the problem. So we try to make that very comfortable. Even for the denim, the composition is made so that it’s very comfy for everyday wear and every day use. I think I’d prioritise comfort first, with (a) flattering fit as well.”




On her design inspiration for her eyewear range...


“The inspiration behind the sunglasses is from the cities that I love and the cities that I’ve been to. For example, Paris is cat-eye (shape) and it’s very elegant. Shanghai is round shape. There isn’t a Singapore yet but it’s coming soon. We’re working on the new design so I hope you guys will look forward to it.”




BLANC & ECLARE is available exclusively at Salon by Surrender,

Located at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

Prices range from SGD 150 to SGD 430.
