Designer: Shenan

For those of you who had feared the 80's harem pants and cut-off tees,  you might have to get over it, they are a trend for this Summer. While many commit some serious crimes (harem pants, that look like diaper dumps and tees that can fit your little sister and/or cousin), Shenansuccessfully serves up offerings that have you on trend and not a nostalgia piece.

With a fashion pedigree from Parsons (she also worked at DKNY and Calvin Klein) and clients including Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Shenan Fraguadas has definitely created a niche for herself. With silk cut-off tees and harem pants in silk and knit jersey with ditsy floral prints, everyone can channel their inner Woodstock. More importantly, her offerings are at moderate price points ($80-$300) so anyone can jump in on this trend. Based in New York, the collection is sold at Thistle & Clover (221 Dekalb Avenue) and online at shenan.bigcartel.com .
