A lot of the time you think, I can’t wear trends, they aren’t practical for my lifestyle or wardrobe. But that’s just not true, sometimes it’s as simple as a new fit of denim for the season, often trends can be subtle changes to fits, which can be easily incorporated. I’m sharing a few of my favorite styles for this season that will keep your wardrobe fresh and up to date.
Oversize – This is not for everyone as you want to avoid clothes wearing you vs you wearing the clothes. Try a simple poplin blouse in an oversize fit, a looser jean, or an unstructured blazer. If you are shopping an item that says oversize in the description, size down at least one to two sizes. They will still fit big and have the oversize styling but not as exaggerated.
Denim Fits – The Skinny jean is not dead, there is a time and a place. BUT it’s definitely time to update your denim fits. Straight, Relaxed, boyfriend cuts to name a few worth trying. As much as some may dislike the unfinished look, small rips and unfinished hems are back!
90’s/Y2k – Not my favorite, but styles have been reappearing from those era’s. Tiny handbags, micro clothing & metallic, they are not the easiest styles to jump into. If I were to suggest one piece, it would be the mini skirt. It’s an easier piece to work into interchangeable outfits and great for summer!
Western – Adding a small detail like fringe to a handbag or hemline, fringe is a fun add to the wardrobe. I’ve shared a gorgeous Isabel Marant light weight jacket with fringe along the seam, below. Perfect for the transitional weather we are having. If you want to get a bit more wild, the western boot is a great new way to elevate the basic ankle boot. They can be paired with summer dresses & denim shorts.
Platfroms – Update your basic sneaker to the platform version, and bam! You’re officially trendy:) The shoe can actually be a platform version of any shoe style right now, from a slip on sandal, loafer or high heel.
