Technology is taking over our dresses, and the results are amazing

Technology is taking over our dresses, and the results are amazing

From color-changing dresses to expandable skirts, the latest style trend is a tech lover’s dream come true

I admit, there are days when I’d like to feel a little less like Steve Urkel and a little more like Stefan Urquelle. But with the surge in wearable tech fashions only getting stronger, my penchant for geek chic style is suddenly socially acceptable.

“Tech-inspired fashion is becoming all the rage,” says Ali Levine, stylist and fashion expert from Fox’s Hollywood Today Live. “Luxury fashion is getting smart with LED and tech-inspired couture. Designers and brands are — literally — seeing their name in lights. We’re seeing everything from Tron-inspired suits to inflatable garments that change shape when you walk.”

If clothes that meet technology are on your must-have list, you’ll probably be as excited about these cool styles as we are.

1. Climate dress

The Climate Dress by Diffus Design is an interactive dress that senses the CO2 concentration in the air. Based on the level of pollution it senses, it creates diverse light patterns with its over 100 LEDs — varying from slow, regular light pulsations to short and hectic. (Similar to how I feel after eating too much Mexican.) This is one of my fave dresses of the bunch, since it’s an aesthetically pleasing reminder that when it comes to the environment, we really need to get our shit together.

2. A little black (solar) dress

The only thing better than a little black dress is a little black solar-powered dress that can charge your cell. I mean, we multitask a good 23 hours a day, why shouldn’t our clothes? Dutch designer Pauline van Dongen incorporated 72 flexible solar cells into the dress, which generates enough power to charge a phone by 50 percent with an hour of sun exposure. Cha. Ching.

3. Sophisticated dresses

There’s only one word to describe MOON Berlin‘s line of wearable tech fashion: Dayuuum. Specializing in fashion and accessories for evening, business and special occasions, its first ready-to-wear collection will be launched internationally this year. The lighting effects in their clothing line are subtle and sophisticated, yet uber-bold.

4. Thunderstorm dress

Up next is the Thunderstorm Dress by Rainbow Winters, aka badassery at its finest. It’s made with bespoke holographic leather and sound-reactive, animated electroluminescent panels. As the volume rises, the dress illuminates to create “visual music.” Grrr, baby!
