Miami Vibe Trend: Not So Much!!
Spring/Summer trends have hit the stores nationwide and while most of them are cool, colourful and fun…some are just wrong! Yes people, I am talking about the Miami Vibe trend that has sailed into high street stores all over Ireland. While I do love prints, especially for the summer, there is just something about this trend that screams Way Too Much!! The trend seems like a Versace knockoff. The Miami Vibe was a main feature of the D&G show and the Versace for H&M Collection and while I did love the trend for Versace (they embraced it elegantly and in small doses) – the trend is just a tad tacky. No store is to blame, per se, as they are simply embracing a catwalk look, but it’s just everywhere. I’d say if it the look was a bit more discreet on the high street, it would be acceptable. But the Miami print is popping up on every item of clothing and is actually taking over the stores!
