We might be digging ourselves out from under a foot of snow here on Cape Cod, but one of the gifts that January brings to us fashion lovers is that it marks the start of awards season. The Golden Globes, Oscars and SAG red carpets not only present an often epic art show, but the fashion we see on the celebrities on the red carpet will also influence the styles we will see in our very own Runway Rundown feature in our print magazine, as well as on the racks in our local boutiques (yes, even here on Cape Cod).
No, we are not expecting Cape Codders to start donning column gowns and strutting their stuff down the Main Streets of our small towns and villages, but the color, material, and special qualities we see will show up in the overall look or as accents in clothing that will be available for consumer purchase in the coming year.
The most prominent trends that we saw on the Golden Globes red carpet last night were, and predict we will see locally are:
Colors: light pink, metallic and bright yellow
Sleeves: shoulder details – exaggerated, gathered and bare shoulder
Neckline: plunging (think camisole for every day wear) and high neck
Style Influence: menswear
Jewelry: chokers and drop necklaces
