I liked all the trends, but I can't wear the slip-on anymore. Empire cut is needed. I agree with you about the shorts. Before they were to boxy of stiff materials. Now last two year, when the designers started to do more shorts i softer materials and designs, I have bought a couple.
I am an Italian artist and drag queen living in France and I love your videos. You should check people like Aquaria, drag queens who got into fashion. Their look is extremely edgy and for sure not wearable on a daily basis, but I find their look very inspiring! https://www.instagram.com/ageofaquaria/?hl=it
How dare you criticize the Calvin Klein model. You have no way of knowing her eating habits. You don't see people in the comments criticizing how often you work out. Because it's about the clothes and how they're presented. I really could have done without such a rude comment about another woman. That kind of negativity only appeals to people who already assess themselves to be not good enough. A mentally healthy individual doesn't need to compare themselves to others and certainly doesn't do so instinctively; and it is a signature of a culture of mental illness that we base rules and industry around the assumption that EVERYONE does.
In India...would never be able to do most of those trends but still, Pencil skirts and te strappy dress i would opt for. With a shrug or throw over straps. Layers of transparent also...adopted...and funnily im still not onboard with ultra violet tho....hmmmm love the lighter tones tho!
Thank you Justine for teaching me some wonderful fashion concepts. I appreciated the color theory and the episodes showing how to see high quality in shoes and handbags. I also liked your jewelry photoshoot day as I am a professional photographer as well. You are so talented Justine!
I like Pamella Roland's the best.
I think I already have some clothes that meet the trends. I don't own many designer name brands though.
I bought this year and I'm wearing right now a black romper with embroidered sheer fabric the body is covered with opaque liner but the sleeves are left sheer. It's one of my favorite summer outfits. I also have a couple pastel pants.
I love the shorts. Also thank you for posting out super skinny models. I am not fat nor super skinny. But I find styling a bit complicated because it seems clothes are fashioned more for these extremes. You thoughts?
Very informative video. I love the pastel colors. Wish we would see more pastel clothing out there. Thank you for talking about how thin some of the models are. Wish they would have more women with different shapes and sizes as runway models.
I love pencil skirts. Not really motivated to wear transparent. I am older and busty. I would rather people talk to my face and not my breasts so I cover myself. Enjoyment of that part of my anatomy is limited to a very selective audience!
I absolutely love love love The Pastels this season! The shorts are great as well like you mentioned and make a great statement piece for the pastels. I agree that a few of the models are way too thin and it's a pity. Can't wait for the fall trends! Love your video!
I'd wear every thing but the slip dress. I understand that slip dresses are very expensive because they can often waist a lot of fabric, but to my eyes they just look lazy and well cheap. I know that they're not cheap to actually purchase, but that's just how my eyes see them, its not my taste. I just feel they have no wow factor.
I love the monochrome look. Most women (myself included) can EASILY replicate an affordable look. All one has to do is pick a color that is flattering. Then you can experiment with various shade and end up looking very chic. Love your channel BTW.
My opinion: I just bought a slip dress and I totally fell in love with it. I am quite petite ... that is why I always used to be very critical (to not look shorter than I actually am because of the floor length of the dress) but when I tried it on it was love at first sight. 😊 The best thing is: The dress has two layers covering the torso, that adds a bit volume to my bosom and meanwhile gives me the chance to wear it without a bra without feeling naked.
I like the slip dresses, I would wear one in a block pastel colour, maybe pastel pink for me, I have olive skin and grey hair. Also like the shorts, which I would style sporty casual. Really lovely video, thank you for all your hard work putting them together, I really enjoy them
Hello Justine! I love your channel. Just wondering if you would ever consider making a video on rompers/jumpsuits? I see them everywhere in America and I love the idea of their comfort and ease especially as a mom of 3 little ones but I’m curious about your opinion on them. Thanks!
I love pencil skirts, I've always felt like I belonged in the WWII era, however! I do not like pastels, ever (I'm an autumn, warm dark), so that's mainly why I think. I also don't care for controlled transparency, but I'm a bit of a conservative dresser. I think that anything sheer like that begs for men to think about seeing more....I may give shorts a whirl again. I gave them up for awhile because I felt like they were overly casual. At 47, I am not sure I can pull of a short slip dress but I may look for a longer one.
BTW I live in the US.
Slip dresses look so comfortable! The only problem I have with it is my big bra will be sticking out. But who really needs to hide the fact that they are wearing a bra? XD
I'm also going to get some nice shorts for this summer. I have bad luck with pants, so I usually go to stretchy, but I think I will try to find some nice fitted stiff fabric shorts to wear. Why are pants so hard to find the right fit?
I love pencil skirts. I especially loved the solid color, same fabric outfit. Could you do a capsule wardrobe for stunts who are over 50? I want to look good, but I can't wear what my classmates are wearing. Please help!
I always enjoy your videos. As cute as some of these trends are, basically none of these trends are actually wearable for me. My daily work wear is very conservative as I work in an office downtown. I wear tailered suits, pretty blouses and very walkable kitten heels. On weekends, I enjoy wearing printed midi a-line skirts, coordinating tops and cute sandals. My jewery is simple, classic and real. I also like adding a nice pair of sunglasses and light weight, natural fiber scarves to my spring / summer outfits. I'm looking forward to your next video.
Shorts always look casual to me, however well tailored they may be and whatever they're paired with. The more they look like a skirt, the less casual, but they still seem inappropriate for a professional or a more formal look.
Hello! I have to wear more tailored structured clothes for a fuller future, unless you have a better suggestion for the summer 2018? I love these wispy summer dresses but they reveal so much skin, anything for women over 60 who want to be fashionable yet age appropriate? Thanks Justine.

Love the slip dress trend! Comfortable and really versatile as formal or casual wear. The only one I just cannot do is the pencil skirt. I'm short and a bit pear shaped, so they either accentuate my butt way too much, or make me look even shorter and pudgier than I really am.
Thanks for the fun video. I could not wear the pale pastes because they don't make my medium complexion look healthy, so I hope more saturated versions of the summery colours remain available- maybe pastels but brighter pastels.
Well? None of those are anything I could or would want to wear, as I am short and over 50. However, I love the violet pastel outfit and could work out my own version of a capsule wardrobe with modifications.
Since I can make about anything I wish, I sometimes get caught up in how they did something and not what I wish to wear. I love the longer skirts and knee length shorts and found them very wearable. Since I am 80, transparent cloths are of little interest even the controlled version. If we were talking lace instead of a plain weave, I might like it more. The slip dress is cool but I would wear a cover up to keep my upper arms covered. I may make one for the fun of it and make the top something besides real adjustable straps. I loved your take on the trends. Thanks.
I love slip dresses it would be nice to see them reinvented with cool, new fabrics that combine the beauty of silk with tech wicking clothes. I am 62 but very fit and love fashion but can wear these body showing clothes because I live in tropics between Jamaica and Florida.
Also I love the transparent trend as I have collected several pretty transparent dresses vintage/thrift unique over-time and I love to wear them & happy it is now the season to wear. Always a fan of pencil skirts and now the longer length is fitting to my body because I’m tall and thin but also my legs of course aren’t as pretty as a 19 year old legs and I’m sensitive to that. Covering up the knees with a longer length is flattering for me .
Your videos are so well done Justine and your insights about fashion fabrics, technology, different countries are great. I really appreciate your videos thank you. I like your historical references as well and how you combine knowledge of shoes, handbags - makeup and hair to help us have more fun and feel good but have responsibility about fashion choices (ie your video about fast fashion). That’s why I’m at big fan of consignment and thrift stores where I get quality things for very little expense (and clothes are recycled and reused). I’ve been lucky to live in affluent areas such as California and Florida where women donate their clothes and we find wonderful things in the thrift stores. I too liked your comment that some of the models were too thin, not as a criticism but just as a reality check. I mean I know fashion is a tool of the matrix but for me it’s a fun part of my existence!
Thanks! Really love pencil skirts, but in past working life always wore with high heels for work. I'm tall, so don't want to look like a tall skinny giraffe with long lines and flat feet. Have to hit Pinterest to get some ideas.
Bonjour Justine 🤗
What would you advice for a mum running after a toddler lol
As a former preschool teacher/ creche minder I have always worn jean, runners and tee shirt so I could play with my students and not bother when paint or other stuff ( rather not naming it lol ) finish on my clothes. So I have basically no clue about fashion ( but learning a lot through your videos) But I want to be more stylish, feminine but still confortable (also I am a pear shape: big butt but no boobs 😭😭😭) well ok I have boobs but they are very small 😭
How can I be feminine with this type of body ?
Merci beaucoup. J aime vraiment tes vidéos et pourtant la mode et moi... 🤦🏻♀️🙈💕💕💕
Thank you! No shorts for me, too self conscious of my spider and vericose veins after having my kiddos. I love the slip dresses and anything that flows. Intersted in shoe ideas. My go to is ankle high booties for everything, I have troublesome feet and that height hides the veins in my ankles. :)
I've just recommended your channel to my two daughters, one currently in Germany studying and one who loves all things French! 2 questions...Are slip dresses a nono if you HAVE to wear a bra? And is it ever OK to wear a pencil skirt with flat shoes? Pencil skirts look great on me but it's not practical for me to wear heels during the day.
Could you do a video on how to dress down fancier clothes? I really like fancier clothes (not celebration wear), and I own mostly dresses because they're so easy (one garment and you're dressed!). I have things like pencil skirts, nicer dresses and blouses etc that I really like, but I don't have fancy occasions to wear them to. I don't want to get rid of them and enjoy wearing them, but I don't want to look overdressed. Can you show us some tips on how to dress-down "nice" clothes?
It looks like South Korean trends from last year came to Europa... Hm... Like pastel colors and slip dress (in Korea it is better to wear under dress some T-shirt) Of course it is only my opinion. But, is it possible that it is like that...?
Pencil skirts absolutely. Looking forward to that. Shorts .... just no. I don't like them, my legs look awful in them regardless of where they end or how blousy or close they're cut and if I'm going to put on something like that I'll just wear trousers or jeans. Pastel doesn't work for me, but other women might like it. I do like shear .... but with a tank top or very fancy bra and only really for an overtly sexy look.
I love these videos, and your tutorials and teaching. I get very excited whenever one of your videos is uploaded. However, I did find it confronting and uncomfortable when you twice commented on two models needing to 'eat more' or being too thin.
I’d love to see a slip dress with wider shoulder straps. Or have one that’s more forgiving for inverted triangle body shapes. I’d love to have that comfort without having to add layers during warmer weather.
I absolutely love all of the clashing patterns!! I am excited to find patterns that might make my butt look bigger. They call that power-clashing right? In Santa Cruz California this all that I need to do in order to feel cool. My schoolbag has 4 different patterns and I usually pair with a long patterned skirt or pants and a patterned or plain long sleeve top.
I love the transparent fabric trend, really looking forward to seeing wearable partly transparent tops and dresses in stores. I also really enjoy pastel colours, they tend to all look really good with my skintone.
It's funny when things that I've been wearing for years are back to trendy! It makes me avoid them for some time until people forget about it- Pencil skirts below the knees are my favorite, I have patterns from the 50's, the best. High waisted shorts are great. And transparency is so elegant, I do it even in day time (not too revealing, though) I don't dare to do pastels beyond underwear, but if I ever try them is not gonna be now that everybody is doing it!
I've always been a fan of the old high-waist/ belted 'culotte-styled' shorts where the hem falls either just above or on the knee. I've been taking to 80s vintage to create that look, but it's exciting to see that this style may become more available and diverse in 2018!! ^_^
I would have liked to see your examples with the streetwear comments. I am surprides the Shear wear is by a dutch designer. it rarely goes above 20 C in the summer , 1 week heat wave max. or 5 days of beach weather max. so the sheer look can be done in southern europe but not northern europe. I dont understand HM for putting out one collection all over the world. I like that look on my 17 year old with a nice bralet but for ovver 50 it has no clothing value because I would need to wear a sweater too. I do remember wearing that in the 90´s.
I like the slip dress look and layered that over a colorful bra piece esp. in silk.
The internet is a sea of valuable information of all accumulated human knowledge where we can delve into any subject known to man and learn every single detail about it without leaving our bedrooms. If used properly, we can all become nuclear physicists and create a Utopia of quantum power where the monetary system becomes void because we do have all the knowledge and technology as humans to satisfy all our human needs while preserving the planet’s natural resources and without any wars. It’s all there at our fingertips. But you’re idiots. We are all idiots.
As hip-hop remains a staple in our society, we continue to appreciate the artists behind this broad genre of music. While Biggie and Tupac represent the best of hip-hop excellence from both coasts, we also remember these two as humans beings, just like the rest of us. With that comes personality, charm, and, of course, a good sense-of-humor.
Today, with the ever-changing nuances of technology and the Internet, rappers can express themselves and their senses of humor in ways far beyond that their music. Whether it’s a GIF, a tweet, a meme, a Snapchat — there’s never a bad time to insert comedy into any given situation. When it comes to music videos, Lil Dicky sets the bar high with “$ave Dat Money,” which clocks in at over 84 million views and counting. Aside from his undeniable talent behind the mic, LD effortlessly reveals a career in comedy is at his fingertips.
