Ever heard of ‘copycat trends’? Well I think…copycat trends are trends that are copied by famous celebs, or people in general. It is  a unique spin on a classic trend (outfit, accessories, makeup, it could be anything really!). They are used most commonly for magazine shoots, street style photography, and in runway. The outfit may be altered to look more sexy, sophisticated, chic, edgy so that people will buy more of it. The designer will add beading, lace, patterns, prints, over the top embellishments to make it stand out. When they are able to do that, they can add it to their collection and celebrities start wearing their design, and it becomes a hit. A fashion sensation.

Copycat trends have become the ‘new sensation’ ( well actually it’s been going on for quite some time not just in 2016), especially on N off the runway recently. It’s like that saying ‘orange is the new pink’  or chokers are the new statement necklace. Runway fashion transforms a classic piece such as a lace top into a matching crop top and skirt (the long lace-y bodice) fringe dresses,  the oversized sweater/shirt and boots, jumpsuits. Sheer n bustier dresses (my fave!) In fact, Model Bella Hadid attended the Dior: The Art of Color event in NYC recently where she wore a beautiful pink, black polka-dotted sheer ensemble on top of a  Christian Dior bra and underwear combo. The piece is actually from Dior’s “recently debuted” Spring 2017 runway collection. Bella also rocked that daring nude lace micro mini number from Misha Collection for Australian Fashion Week. Micro-mini dresses have been around for years, and I’m totally obsessed with them.

A copycat trend on N off the runway  is timeless, effortless, and different in it’s twisted little way. That’s the power of an outfit, and what it can do for you and what it can look like on someone else. It’s about change, but also keeping it the same..or at least some aspect of it. Most importantly IT’S ABOUT CREATIVITYSome designers may cut or use bits and pieces of an outfit to make it unique, or pair the outfit with different shoes. Or it ma look like the same outfit, but it really isn’t, just a more affordable copycat of the outfit. It could be many DIFFERENT things. It all depends on what you are going to do with that outfit, how you’re going to use it, the way someone sees it, will it be better than the original or will it look ugly AF? My bet? It will probably outdo the original outfit and make everyone want to put that piece in their stores. But that’s just my opinion!

Here are some ‘Copycat trends’ (that I’ve picked that represent what I think Copy Cat trends are!) for you that are from On N off the runway from 2016 and other years as well. Btw: I did google ‘copycat trend’ before writing this post. I just wanted to do a little research on it, just to explain it a little bit better for you lol.  You know what they say….”Honesty is the best policy” fashionistas!
