Guess is synonymous with music, grunge and rock ‘n’ roll. This American label’s line-up of denim and casual wear is understated, chic and edgy season after season.
For AW 2014 Guess has given their own grungy twist to hot international trends for men and women. At my visit to the store, I found it hard to choose a favourite trend or outfit, because there was so much to choose from. Here are my top picks of the trends you need to check out at Guess, and style tips on how to wear them.
Prints, prints, prints
You can never have too many graphic print tees, so check out the cowboy prints for girls and the outdoor travel prints for the guys. Besides these, winter florals on crop tops, dresses and tops bloom in the Guess collection (pun intended), while men have a choice of paisleys and abstract patterns, with updated check shirts.
Style tip for women: Don graphic printed tees with your favourite jeans and a backpack for college-y cool.
Style tip for men: If you’ve never experimented with printed shirts before, this is your chance. Play it safe with a small print, paired with a basic pair of jeans.
All-new winter wear
I love the idea of experimenting with personal style in winter (sadly, Mumbai doesn’t have one). I love the versatility of the denim shirt I saw at Guess, which I paired with a Guess tshirt and later with a knit dress. For the guys, there are plenty more options- light and heavy jackets along with chunky knits in classic winter colours.
Style tip for women: Denim jackets are great for almost any look, so keep one handy at all times!
Style tip for men: A textured knit or jacket with lots of zip, button and pocket detailing is a great buy this season. Throw it on over a tee and swagger!
It’s party time
Slim fit shirts + straight fit jeans = Party wear for guys.
Embellished tops / dresses + fun detailing (like fringes) = Party wear for girls.
It’s all there at Guess, and that’s where you go when you want to rock the party this winter. Plus, sexy mini skirts and feminine dresses are always a great party option.
Style tip for women: Girls, you can rock a party in jeans and edgy tops. Choose a funky print or embellished top (like the one in this picture), strap on killer heels, apply red lip colour and let your hair down!
Style tip for men: Look classy- throw on a cool jacket or sharp blazer over jeans for a smart look.
Denim (as always)
The Power Skinny is Guess’s answer to super skinny for the ladies, and these jeans look great. Of course, being a casual wear brand the store had plenty of options in each cut and wash. I found the Power Curvy option suited me quite well.
Style tip for women: Darker washes are great for evening wear and make your legs look slimmer. Look out for metallic finishes, and complete the look with a thin belt.
Style tip for men: Men, watch out for the Regular Boot style- this trend is on the rise.
