Based on this guidance, I went one step further and found my next big fashion and beauty trends that will help you create your shopping list. Here they are.
You might wonder which the most popular pattern is that is dominating the fashion town. It’s the check pattern! Well, the pattern has been often found on blazers and trousers. But now it has been seen on suit sets and breezy skirts and asymmetrical tops. I find this time the best to mix the pattern with my other favorite: floral!
Cowboy Accessories instead of Jewelry
Replacing jewelry with cowboy accessories is today’s trend. Thus, a statement necklace can be replaced by a neckerchief. This trend is especially useful for fall and winter when you need warmer alternatives. They are bright and bold and make you feel a bit more special. And if you choose a vintage one, it adds a drama to your looks.
Try Bright Colors with Accessories or Shades of Lipsticks First
You know that one of the latest trends is wearing bright colors and you too are tempted to wear them, but you are afraid if they’ll look really good on you. Even I was in the same confusion. Here’s a great trick. Wear the color in a shade of lipstick or an accessory and see how it goes. Thus if you want to wear a citron colored blouse, first wear shoes or handbag of that color. This will give you a confidence to wear that color.
Get Only Three Key Pieces and Look Great
If you are like me, you might always be wondering whether we can adopt the fashion trends that models on the ramp wear! Well, the clear answer to this is “no”! But you don’t have to worry as once you adopt the latest three-piece trend, you will look great in any outfit. What are these three pieces? A superb everyday leather handbag, a pair of classy sunglasses that suits your face and a great pair of shoes that you can comfortably walk in. That’s it!
Find the Perfectly Fitting Jeans without Trying It
Here’s the new trend and style tip for finding a pair of jeans without tying it! Just wrap its waist around your neck and if the ends meet comfortably without needing you to overlap or stretch, the jeans will fit you! When I first read this, I didn’t believe it, but it really works.
Pop a Belt
Can you deny how much you love belts? If you want to achieve a trimmed-waist look, there is nothing like a belt. And you can get so many of them, embellished, textured or in an eye-catching color with or without patterns. As a bonus, you can quickly pull together the most basic pieces or revamp your casual outfit with a belt.
Update Your Footwear Wardrobe
A pair of sharp-toe black pumps is a trendy accessory that goes all year round, no matter what the occasion is. Such a pair of black pumps is timeless and can be paired with literally anything.
Maximum Two while Mixing Colors or Patterns
If you are not sure about mixing colors or patterns, follow the rule of two I learned from myThreads! Whether you want to mix prints or bright colors that you think may mismatch, don’t go beyond two. For example, try florals with stripes but don’t add geometrics too. Or mix grey with lavender but don’t add pink.
Make Friends with Denim
Just like the checker pattern, denim is ruling the fashion world now; so, you better make friends with it. Collect some prominent pieces to amp your wardrobe such as a pair of high-end jeans, jacket, shirt, belt or even a handbag. The trendiest denim items come with bold floral embroidered motifs that look super cool.
A Wardrobe Full of Clothes is not Necessary
To become a style icon in your circle, your wardrobe doesn’t have to be full of clothes. With just a few signature pieces, you can create the magic. These include a blue blazer, a black pair of pants, a V-neck cashmere sweater in a jewel tone and more. These pieces should be high-priced while you can play with more low-priced pieces so that if you don’t like them, it won’t be too bad if you wear them only once.
Make an Impressive Hairstyle
If you are not very happy about your hairstyling skills, you need not worry. An impressive hairstyle is not unachievable even if your skills are not very impressive. You can follow today’s trends of interweaving silk into your braids. This will make your hairstyle look much more elaborate that it really is.
Add Drama to Your Bag
Another latest trend is to tie a scarf around your handbag. This will make your boring routine bag look interesting. Choose a structured item with top handles.
Add Formal Looks to Casual Outfits
You can make your casual outfits like t-shirts and jeans look formal and can wear them anywhere. You just have to amp your look with right accessories like a statement bracelet, an intricate necklace or pairs of outstanding earrings.
Add Weight to Your Light Scarf with Earrings
Another favorite trend of mine is to make use of earrings not in ears but to add weight to a light scarf. A pair of vintage earrings can be tied to the ends of such a scarf and not only the scarf will become weighty, but it will create a great accessory that will help you make a statement.
Consider Your Body Type
Considering body type while choosing outfits is also the latest trend. As stylists and designers suggest, everyone is keen about their body types which may be either apple (plump – wide top), pear (wide bottom), square or hourglass. While any outfits looks good on an hourglass body type, others have to be a bit careful about choosing outfits so as accentuate their plus points and hide minus points.
Wear High Heels
I know they are painful and aren’t recommended for feet and spine either. But wearing heels once in a while can make a big difference to your overall look.
Be Trendy but Stick with the Look that Works
Being trendy is quite necessary. But if you find a look that particularly works for you, don’t leave it. You don’t need to wear it everywhere, but you can definitely make your signature look so that people will know you by it, such as a t-shirt and a pair of jeans or a short skirt and floral top etc.
Invest in Good Watches
If you watch time in your mobile phone and so, don’t wear a watch, you can spoil your trendy look. It’s advisable to invest in some good watches. There are a lot of dress watches out there from which you can choose. Keep a variety in your collection by buying classic as well as trendy pieces.
A tip I got on myThreads is to overdress especially when you are not sure. There is no bigger fashion blunder than attending an event underdressed. Probably the invite didn’t involve the word ‘casual’, still others dressed up no that casually. In that case, if you are not sure about the dress code, there’s no harm in overdressing and looking too pulled together. But the thought of looking out of place will make you uneasy.
Rocking PJ’s Trend
Want to rock PJ’s trend? Choose rich fabrics with simple patterns, mix with something fitted and pick shoes that don’t look like slippers. You can even make this your signature look if you want!
Hope these trends will color your life and make you confident about looking good. Follow them and if you have your own, don’t forget to share with us.
