We're all aware of the fact that social media as a whole has changed the fashion game. It's made anyone and everyone open to sharing, replicating and commenting on outfits across the globe. It's paved the way for a new kind of democracy in what used to be a fairly elitist world, and our eyes have been opened to individual style in all shapes, sizes, nationalities and so on. We can shop directly from girls who we admire but we've never met, and we can put our own looks out there for admiration. But there's one particular app that is shifting how we document what we wear and, well, what we're even wearing at all: Boomerang.
Have you used Boomerang yet? It's the app adopted by fashion girls who like to have fun—a peppy pick-me-up in a sea of more serious style-heavy snaps. Boomerang offers some light fashion relief, but we've noticed a pattern for when it's employed that's led us to realise that some clothes are good Boomerang clothes—practically made for it, and perhaps some of us even set about putting together an ensemble for the purpose of this Instagram add-on alone—and some are not.
Basically, good Boomerang clothes are ruffles, blouson sleeves, major volume, thigh slits, metallics, satin, anything embellished and, of course, fringing. Funnily enough, all of those are really key trends right now… Just saying.
