What is happening in fashion right now?
From Manhattan to Milan, the latest trends are all over the runways. We are seeing so many different fashions from pajama clothes to the return of bell bottoms and wide leg pants. Just about anyone can find a piece of clothing that fits their personal style and makes them feel confident at the same time.
Want to know what to wear now? Here are a few of the top trends that will take us to the end of the year and into the next.
From school girl to fabulous
According to Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing, “Pleated skirts are a home run … because they’re figure-flattering, they’re feminine, they’re romantic, be it to the knee or to the floor, it’s going to speak to many women”. Looking for a way to wear pleats? Alloy has this Carmen Pleated Dress which is feminine and sophisticated and perfect for many body types.
Accessories with impact
An outfit without accessories is similar to a Christmas tree without ornaments. Accessories finish the look and add interest. If you want to make a statement with your accessories this year, try a large piece of jewelry. Big, jeweled, colorful necklaces are very popular in today’s contemporary fashion and they will not go out of style anytime soon. Arhaus Jewels is a great place to find some of the most unique, handmade necklaces on the market. Romantic, old-fashioned and at the same time very trendy, all of these styles are winners. Try it on for size!
Comfort and style all in one
In the last few years we have seen slim and skinny cuts as a very popular choice for men. Though skinny is still “en vogue”, the styles are returning to a more relaxed, tailored look. A relaxed business casual shirt from Orvis Men’s showcases the tailored look of a professional shirt paired with the casual relaxed feel as seen in the print and the material.
Jane is not so plain anymore
For anyone who has been called “Plain Jane”, you will appreciate what people are wearing now. This year there is an emphasis on minimalism and wearing ordinary clothes in a sophisticated way. The style boasts neutral, natural palettes and classic fabrics mixed with simple lines. This wrap dress from Serengeti Catalog is the perfect example of the essence of minimalism. Wear it under a sweater or a jacket for some extra added warmth in the winter months.
