Geometric Fashion- The Trend.
Sharp lines and hard edges. Abstract shapes and unusual structures. Geometric fashion has been popping up everywhere and we literally mean everywhere (well in the fashion sense anyway…). From catwalk to high street and from head to toe, many of the latest trends have that Art Deco vibe that inspires geometric fashion. Todays post is all about the womens bodycon dresses available online at IKRUSH and just how to go all out, in a geometric fashion…
Geometric Fashion- The IKRUSH Bodycon Dresses.
The bodycon dress, as you may have guessed, is one of our IKRUSH loves. We pretty much specialise in providing them! Each style we chose has been picked whilst keeping the latest fashion trends in mind. We’re thinking that a bit of vintage inspiration came in here with everything from Rennie MacIntosh to the Chrysler building providing some historic vintage inspiration to Geometric fashion. For other vintage trends and catwalk looks check out our post Vintage Style In a Cinematic Fashion.
So let’s get into the best bit, where we pick our fav IKRUSH looks to fit in with the geometric fashion trend. First up we have a super sharp look with a cutout geometric bodycon dress. This style comes in both white and maroon which gives two great options for different skin tones. We think the white is great for those with warmer skin tones (or a great tan!). Try the maroon if you have a cooler tone as richer shade work well to contrast the skin and highlight your best assets. Also available in red or black, so plenty to choose from!
For more of a clubbing bodycon dress we love a bit of bling and our gold glitter bodycon dress does just the trick. A more simple take on geometric fashion with less lines. Don’t worry though less linage doesn’t mean boring with super shiny gold and thicker lines you’ll be bold and brave on the dance floor. Which style do you prefer? We are having a bit of a hard time choosing at the IKRUSH HQ. We think the black might just be edging closer to being the winner, after all everyone loves a LBD.
On of our star picks has to be this grey glitter bandage dress! The shape of the neckline narrows the shoulders, overall giving you the appearance of a longer neck. Swan Beauty eat your heart out huh? We love that the geometric shapes stop at the waist line, drawing attention to our tiniest bit- the waist. Effectively you can get an hourglass shape whilst still feeling comfy in stretchy fabric. Wear with our leather biker jacket for a great winter cover up. Can’t have our IKRUSH girls freezing over now, can we?
Not so much a fan of bodycon dresses? Well not to fear we have a little bit of geometric fashion going on in the peplum department too! Woo hoo. Our peplum chain top in 3 colourways has a great necklace detailing in bold gold square cutouts. Which colour would you opt for? Today we are feeling the red, which is a pretty huge shade in this seasons fashion trends.
On the bottom of geometric fashion (we mean in the shoe sense) cut out shoes, boots and heels have been pretty popular this year. We loved Alexander Wangs collection in every shape and size!
For those of you on a budget (cheap shoes are a must these days, especially beautiful cheap shoes…) we have picked our top three. The cut out heel, the cut out boot and the cut out shoe boot will all give you some top trend points whilst keeping in with geometric fashion.
Geometric Fashion- The Hair Trends.
So that’s your clothes taken care of, but why stop their in your bid to rule the world of geometric fashion? Your hair is JUST as important and one of the most highly debated looks of AW 2013 might just be the right choice for you. We’ve been hearing for a while that some people are getting a tad sick of the ombre dip dye. Which honestly is fair enough, it really has been on everyone everywhere. At IKRUSH we believe in gaining some womens fashion confidence by standing out from the crowd and doing things in your style. The new way to ombre seems pretty cool, splashlights, created by Aura Friedman (who is now working at Wella) for singer Caroline Polacheck.
The Look is a bit over dramatic in this video? Which is also a tad strange… Although strange can be a good thing, it’s almost endearingly so!
No worries though, her recent tweet showed that once is starts growing out, the splashlights are must more natural and wearable.

Ask your hair stylist for more subtle lines such as in the image below (left) for an ombre style that will turn heads for all the right reasons.
If your not feeling going for the dye just to get into the geometric fashion trend, then why not try one of these catwalk styles? At Jason Wu (Right) simple clips held in place a rather complicated looking sleek up do. Don’t worry though, to get this look simply section the front of your hair (from about mid parting forward) off. Then, using a comb to keep the look tight, pull hair down and use your fingers to turn under, securing with kirbie grips underneath. For the front, section off the top layer, and work with the under sides first. Take one side and pull straight back over the back of your head around the middle area. Secure into the opposite of the bun. Repeat this with the other side but this time use a long, curved hair clip along the length of this section, ensuring it clips the whole way through your layers. For the front of your hair comb the length of one side straight out so its super neat. Pull back, behind the ears and secure into the turned under hair. Repeat for the second side.
We think this works best with a middle parting, one of the hair looks right now. For an easier way to get the geometric hair a leather band with most sleek styles looks great. This Valentino (Left) backstage shot gives great contrast between the roundness of the braids and the sharp line of the leather band. Geometric Fashion- Eye’s straight ahead. It’s all about the liner with behind the scenes geometric make-up. At Dior we saw some carefully placed silver lines highlighting and enhancing the eyes. This shade is perfect for all you blue and green eyed beauties. Gold goes great with brown eyes though so don’t feel left out of the metallic trend.
Geometric Fashion- Thinking Nail Art.
Don’t think we have forgotten about the main hot spot for geometric fashion… NAIL ART! Everyone loves a bit of nail art and we have picked out our fav geometric nail artstyles on twitter just for you ladies! Which is your top pick? The geometric rainbow?
