Dear New Found Lust: Where can I find the Trim Blazer online?

Mitchmaze, a lovely New Found Lust reader, would like to know where to find the must-have trim blazer online, featured June 26th:

Well, luckily, the trim blazer has been done by various brands and designers...

The particular blazer that was featured on New Found Lust is by Primark, a brand from the UK currently with stores in the UK, Ireland and Spain. However, you can find alternatives online such as this one by Helene Berman; this one by L.A.M.B.; or this one by Semantics. The trim blazer was also used in Lacoste and Polo Ralph Lauren spring collections and are currently harder to find but you might be lucky and find those on Ebay.

The Black and White Block Dress Trend: Identities and Winner Revealed

It's a tie!



After days of votes from our readers, the results are in and it's a tie. Our first exhibit is the Monochrome Jersey Dress by H&M, made of a fabric meant for the day-to-day and with a simple, easy-to-wear design. The second exhibit is the Daily Slip Dress by Day Birger et Mikkelsen with a more dressier style.

Regardless of how casual or formal they are, the most important difference is where their color block division is located. In the first example, the black block begins just below the chest while the second one starts at the waist. The end result can be very different since this line is where the focus will be put on. Therefore, it's recommended that this color division is located where your narrowest part of the body is.

New Found Lust's verdict:

H&M Monochrome Jersey Dress
(Exhibit A.) - Best for casual outings, recommended when the ribcage is narrower than the waist.

Day Birger et Mikkelsen Daily Slip Dress (Exhibit B.) - Made for dressier occasions, it's most recommended when the waist is narrower than the ribcage.

Pre-Fall Collections: The smooth transition from warm to cold

You might have noticed that alongside the summer sales there is a "New Collection" section at the stores. It varies from brand to brand but these pieces tend to belong to the Pre-Fall Collection. Presented as early as the start of the current year at runway shows, they might be related to the coming fall trends, but are made of lighter fabrics that make them a perfect transeasonal choice. Colorwise, they are relevant for both seasons so you can be sure that they will match either seasonal pieces.

Pre-fall fashion pieces can even stay throughout the fall season in cities or countries where weather is not as stark and predictable. Even if part of a designer's collection include very warm pieces and materials, it will not necessarily reach every selling point. Product management enters at this point to determine which pieces do well according to the context and selling performance of each location in the world and even each local store.

Pre-Fall Collections

The new season between seasons concept might be part of the industry's selling strategy, but is surely convenient and practical for the buyers. It can guarantee more use of purchased garments since it can be adapted to a variety of weather conditions. Moreover, considering the current climate changes and general unpredictability of them around the world, these seasons in between seasons are easy for all of us to take in.
