Zip Trend

I've been wanting to write about zipper trim clothes for months now, actually since 3.1 Philip Lim's Spring/Summer 2009 show in fall of 2008. Alas, you can't really do a search for "zipper" and get good results. The trend took a while to catch on too. Snippets of it would appear here and there, but mostly it was ignored by stores with mass production until lately. Finally, here are a handful of zipper trimmed clothes, a great way to add a little edge to your every day look.Top: black ruffle tank, Charlotte Russe $19.99
blue dolman sleeve top, Arden B $24.99
colorblock shoulder zip top, Charlotte Russe $17.99
Bottom: linen jacket, Sharagano on Overstock $57.99
plaid asymetrical jacket, Charlotte Russe $26.99
white ruffle blouse, Catherine Malandrino at Neiman Marcus $275
three zipper pencil skirt, Guess by Marciano $118
navy a-line skirt, Twelve by Twelve $32
black pencil skirt with asymetrical zipper, Mischen on La Garconne $94.50
grey tiered jersey skirt, Bailey 44 at Revolve Clothing $118


Yes, the zipper trend is officially here. I really loved 3.1's initial interpretation of this look. However, I can also appreciate and embrace the rise of the trend.

I designed a patent-pending zipper headband that would look so cute with any of these pieces! My favorite is the dolman sleeve top!
