Top 5 Contemporary Fashion Trends from Magic Market Week

Feb 21 2015

Las Vegas, NV - While the runways of NY and Milan establish trending couture styles for celebrities and the elite, a week on the buying floor of the largest US fashion market showcases wearable contemporary styles for everyday fashionistas.

From one fashion-forward brand to the next, these five trending styles define Spring 2015:

1. Distressed Denim - If you’re like us, distressed denim is a hard trend to embrace. However, when styled the right way, tattered and torn jeans can actually look, dare we say, polished! Check out these chic distressed denim looks:

Trust us fashionistas, if you’re shopping for denim this spring, ripped and frayed jeans are unavoidable. Maybe it’s time we all loosen up and give them a try?

2. Rompers - Virtually every contemporary fashion brand, from edgy to conservative, included shorts rompers in their Spring ’15 lines. Many rompers feature vibrant prints and interesting design details, like the necktie found on this adorable romper by Dance & Marvel (coming soon to UB!).


For a polished, country club look, try a structured design in a solid color, like this strapless, crepe romper in mint or white (shop both colors now!).

Concerned about baring your pale gams? Consider a spray tan or self tanning lotion for a long-legged, sun-kissed look. We recommend Lancome’s Flash Bronzer Tinted Self-Tanning Leg Gel.    

3. Nautical Inspired Styles - Nearly every exhibitor at market showcased navy and white resort styles. Stripes, polka dots and anchor prints cover tops, bottoms, rompers, tailored sleeveless dresses, skirts, and blazers and slacks outfits. Accessorized with a yacht or not, these nautical classics make any casual outfit look elegant!

4. Cropped Top Coords - Cropped tops/jackets and skirts/slack sets are available in all shapes, colors and sizes for spring. Replace your basic sheaths with this sexy, two-piece silhouette. If you’re body conscious, consider pairing cropped tops/jackets with high waisted slacks or a pencil skirt. Or, layer over a long cami to highlight your waist but cover your belly. 


5) Beachy Boho Styles - With so many fashion-forward designers stemming from the West Coast, it’s no surprise bohemian styles are omnipresent in the contemporary marketplace. Flowy tops, cover-ups, tunics and sundresses in retro-inspired prints such as florals, paisleys, and patchwork adorned with lace, embroidery, braiding, tassels and fringe are steadfast this season. Spring, summer, fall or winter, we can’t get enough of this look at UB!
