Truly trend­ing?

ELLE (Canada) - - Elle Letters -

I took your Au­gust 2016 is­sue to the cot­tage with me and passed it around to my fam­ily. I thought your fall/ win­ter 2016 fash­ion trend re­port [“Top 20”] was re­ally cool, but my par­ents and some aunts and un­cles were dumb­founded with No. 8, the over­sized trend. “Is this ser­ious?” they asked of the megashoul­der pads and looks that even you de­scribed as “car­i­ca­tures.” I don’t know if we’ll re­ally see any­thing quite that ex­treme on the streets. But I can say the trend was alive and well on our “run­way” dock this sum­mer. My aunts dressed up my six-year-old cousin in all his dad’s clothes for an im­promptu fash­ion show. Whether the trend will last into next sea­son re­mains to be seen. But I have a feel­ing I’m prob­a­bly never go­ing to hear or see the end of it at the cot­tage. So thanks for all the XXL mem­o­ries, ELLE Canada. Jac­quie, Toronto

Edi­tor’s note: If you’d like to learn more about the over­sized trend, see “Big Love” on page 80.
