The Bold & The Beautiful
The Spring/Summer seasons are underway and the Snobs are pulling out all the stops. We’ll eventually cover every single trend Snobs are being drawn to, but we wanted to start with how much the Snobs love their bold colors. Historically black women have always been drawn to bold colors, prints, and patterns.
It was absolutely perfect for this trend to be in this time right now. Designers research everything before deciding on their collections and that includes, their environment, what’s going on culturally, and what’s going on politically. Culturally black people are sick of being treated like we don’t mean anything dead or alive. Culturally black people are standing up and fighting back injustices thrust upon them every single day. Culturally blacks are fighting a justice system that wasn’t built to uplift but oppress anyone of their race.
With all this in mind a designer can build their collection or specific pieces with the black consumer in mind. Black women are being bolder in their style choices. Black women are being given more platforms and are being heard more and more each day. When a black woman is given an opportunity to excel she will need something to wear.
Tom Ford Spring 2018
From Africa to going to church every Sunday with our parents and/or grandparents we have been raised to embrace color. We have been taught to stand out, to have our own style, and to embrace who we are no matter what anyone thinks. Sending bold colors down the runway is right up our alley.
The Snobs have gone head over heels with their bold color selections, Tracee Ellis Ross slayed on the Gram last month in a dress by Christopher Kane, giving us neon vibes and making us want the dress for ourselves. TK Wonder wore a DVF dress that spoke for itself. Zendaya took us back to the 80s in Marc Jacobs Zoot Suit. Every single look was boasting color and style our closets crave and the Snobs love.
Below we have selected a few crazy brights you might like to try for yourself.
