As every season comes and goes we like to switch up our wardrobes to be able to compete with the fashionistas we see all over social media. Trying to navigate the world of fashion is so confusing. There are so any trends that we need to look into. Some are great and some are just terrible and should not be seen (Balenciaga Crocs). We have looked into it and determined a few tips and items we like. We have even included a few bolder street-style tips to include for when you’re living your best insta-fashion life on the street.
We love to wear black a lot of the time like many other people. It means that you always have something to wear and something to match. As fantastic as black is we are starting to see a big color resurgence. Were focusing on the pastels. Mauve and tan colors are coming back with a bang. Were not only talking including one piece in your wardrobe, were seeing full pastel outfits and were loving it! Skirt and crop top combos, matching dress and jacket sets and suits are in for Spring and fit perfectly to the season.
Our all time favorite trend that is so easy to master is the emergence of athleisure wear. Wearing sports wear as a complete outfit is so simple but effective. The reason we love this so much is because it is so easy to accomplish and can be mixed with other trends. You cannot ignore Kanye West’s influence in this area. The new Yeezy season is giving everyone the athleisure love they need. Even adding small athleisure pieces to your casual wardrobe will bring it up. Tracksuit tops, bicycle shorts and over-sized hoodies are the orders of the day if you’re wanting to add trendy to your wardrobe vocabulary.
If you just want to add one item to your wardrobe that will amp it up a little this year, we suggest going for transparency. Unless you are wildly brave then you really can’t be seen in a full see-through outfit , but a few items can be added as layering that will make you stand out from the crowd. Our favorite ideas are a transparent rain parka or a see-through lace dress over jeans and a t-shirt. Transparent clothes don’t always have to be just worn over underwear. Get creative with your layers for a better effect.
When it comes to accessorizing, its all about minimalism nowadays. In place of the big tote bags we used to carry around we now have mini bags and backpacks. Small dainty things are the choice of the day. Our favorite bag trend that used to be a terrible fashion faux pas is the belt bag. It used to be the choice of the globetrotting tourist to keep all their important belongings on their person. It is now seen all over street-style professionals and is a trendy touch to any stylish outfit.
Our final tip on adding some style to your wardrobe is to get some texture in your life. In 2018 any texture can be taken and used to up your style game. Just walking into a store will give you all the inspiration you will need. We love fringe, feather and metallic. Okay, we know metallic isn’t really a texture but we find it has the same effect as a textured item.
These are just a few of our favorite trends that are coming up this year and we cannot wait to implement them into our wardrobes. If you have any tips and trends don’t hesitate to let us know in the comments.
