From classic pieces with an updated twist to fresh tailoring, there’s a myriad of looks for everyone’s personal style. Get ready to update your wardrobe with these coolest fashion trends:
1. Shoes Worn Over Pants
Whether you’re walking to the office or having brunch with friends, you can wrap a pair of strappy heels around the ankle of your cigarette pants, jeans, or slacks. Complete the look with a matching jacket, coat, or an off-the-shoulder blouse. This is a refreshing take on a classic style that is sure to turn heads!
2. Oversized Victorian Sleeves
Take it back to the 19th century with the Victorian-inspired sleeves. Its oversized shape creates the illusion of a slimmer waist and adds an instant feminine touch to your ensemble. Opt for soft colors during spring, or unleash your inner gothic princess in black or grey. It is also a great time to pull out your vintage ‘80s puff sleeve looks – it’s a style that keeps coming back!
3. Chunky Boots with Feminine Dresses
Grunge is back in a big way with these feminine dresses and chunky boots. Whether you’re a fan of bold patterns or you prefer block colors, a maxi with a cinched waist is an easy way to show off your girly side. Pair it with combat boots, and you’ll be ready for anything! This is a ’90s authentic, so don’t be afraid to mix things up and have some fun!
4. Maxi Faux Leather Coats
When the temperature drops, keep yourself warm and toasty in a faux leather coat. If you prefer to look sleek and high fashion or funky with a grunge twist, these long-line pieces are perfect for you. Switch things up by rocking a bold color like red or emerald, or knock everyone out of the park in an all-black ensemble. This is another ’90s staple that just got a fresh upgrade, so why not give it a try this winter?
5. Pastel Bucket Hats
Block out the sun and do it in style with a pastel bucket hat. This cute and trendy accessory looks impressive during any season of the year and is so versatile that you can wear it with almost anything. From a zesty lemon to a light beige, these soft shades are the most timeless options for a fantastic outfit!
6. Faux Leather Jumpsuits and Boilersuits
Elevate your entire wardrobe by rocking a pleather jumpsuit. These versatile and edgy one-pieces act as a whole outfit from one garment, and are so cute that you can wear them to any event! Unleash your inner Barbie with an all-pink getup, or channel a biker-chic aesthetic by keeping it cool in black. Complete the look with a belt bag and stunning boots or sandals, and you’ll rule the world!
7. Matching Printed Tops and Stockings
Keep it consistent with a pair of matching tops and stockings. No matter what your style is – from girly to punk – you can rock a cool pattern with confidence. Stand out from the crowd in varying shades of print, or streamline your entire ensemble with the one tone. It’s an easy way to create a memorable and sleek outfit.
8. Square-Toed Heels
Put a twist on the traditional heel with a square-toe style. While it still lengthens your legs, it adds a special touch to your ensemble in a unique way. Keep your feet free with sandals or transition into the colder months with a pair of ankle booties. It is a funky and fresh way to complete an outfit, any time of the year.
9. Bucket-Style Bags
Secure your products in style in a bucket bag. Originated by Louis Vuitton in 1932 to keep champagne fresh, now they’re the hottest accessory trend. With a long body and round shape, these handbags offer a lot of room, and they’re incredibly cute. Match the shade to the rest of your outfit, or make a statement by wearing a completely different color. It’s easy to complete an ensemble with this style, and its practical too.
10. Oversized Gold Chain Necklaces
This is a trend that never goes out of fashion – the gold chain necklace. This season, opt for an oversized style to your ensemble. These accessories compliment any outfit, no matter where you’re headed. Wear it alone or with a collection of other jewels, and you won’t need anything else. You could even rock it with two or more chains for a dramatic twist.
