In fashion, stylists have more power than you might expect. In fact, aside from the designers, theirs is a second opportunity to realize trends. The way we see clothing in magazines, in the shop windows, on celebrities, is largely a product of their interpretations of the newest clothing. Though fashion editors and store owners and the people who employ stylists surely have a say in the matter, the stylists still hold the reigns in some regard. Especially when it comes to accessories and finishing touches. That said, our Network Partner, Style Bubble, was transfixed by styling in a Selfridges window and promptly went on a DIY adventure to replicate the idea. Style Bubble, a trend setter in her own right, studied a pair of hosiery that had been carefully torn by whomever was in charge of such a thing, and now, well, now we might just see it on more than a few chicsters. A recent post we wrote on sheer socks had us thinking about DIY hosiery a few weeks back. Perhaps because hosiery, as we've seen in the Fall 08 shows, makes such a big statement with a little bit of money, it can be said that the most stylish among us play around with the possibilities. Even if only for one outfit or one shop window, the simple task of altering those finishing touches might a massive trend make.
