Every season there are a few garments that rise to the top as most coveted in the magazine world. While we've been keeping track of the most popular cover choices for the past few seasons, it's time to shift our focus to editorials.
Unless you've been altogether ignoring print media these past few months, you will have noticed the popularity of bodysuits, bedazzled or otherwise, from both Dolce & Gabbana and Prada. They show up everywhere you look and not only have we seen them on models, but celebrities like Lana Del Ray, Jennifer Lawrence and Mila Kunis.
But those aren't the only looks that have been showing up again and again. What differentiates these looks from the rest (other than the advertising dollars which back them) are a showstopping quality, which makes them memorable and easily identified. Having said that, you'll also notice a pattern of pastels, and 20s and 50s inspiration.
We're sure you already have a few ideas floating around about which pieces we noticed the most, and if you reach to your nearest fashion glossy we're also sure you'll find at least one, if not all of the following looks in its pages.
Dolce & Gabbana Jeweled Bodysuit Making the celebrity rounds, this bodysuit (a garment which has a long history with the brand) was a fashion moment waiting to happen from the second the deluge of models walked down the runway in them at Dolce & Gabbana's spring show last September.
Prada Bodysuit In keeping with Prada's theme for spring, their take on the bodysuit is more 50s bombshell swimwear than corseted goddess. It's also another popular celebrity styling choice.
Prada Embroidered Coat This piece--in its variation of textured patterns and color--has been the coat of choice for many stylists. It is typically styled with a bodysuit or soft Prada pleats, a direct contrast to the coat's boxy silhouette.
Gucci Flapper Dresses It'll come as a shock to no one that Gucci's flapper-inspired beaded fringe dresses are so popular. The drop waisted looks are definitely the most glamorous of the 20s Gatsby trend we've been seeing lately.
Louis Vuitton Eyelets Speaking of contrasts, Louis Vuitton had the collar market cornered last fall with a cold, metallic version which matched the dominatrix theme of their fall show. This spring saw an embroidered silk eyelet collar which complements the brands fresh, pastel collection. Not to mention the eyelet dresses, which are just about everywhere.
Stella McCartney Wave Dress Just like her polka dots last fall, Stella McCartney is riding the wave of her popular silk dresses. And just like last season, these showstoppers are deceptively sexy with unassuming asymmetry and mesh cutouts.
Miu Miu Wrap Last but not least, the patch madams of Miu Miu have been wrapping up in the brands shawls and capes at an alarming rate, tied up in a velvet bow.
