Even if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed with all the seasonal trends, we’re here to help you out. For some hot new trends for this year and suggestions on how you can wear them, read on!
Dreamy version of ultraviolet
While Pantone’s color of the year might be ultraviolet, the trends have decided to take it and make it softer, dreamier, and turn it into lavender. Pastel shades are all in vogue, but lavender is a particularly popular choice that will look absolutely amazing on any lady with blue eyes. A nice, silk blouse could be a great way to pull this trend off in everyday life, and you could pair it with a pencil skirt and a pair of pumps for an ultra-polished, sexy look.
Bold, prints, Warhol-inspired pieces, graphic tees – art meets fashion in this bold new trend. For the edgy gal who wants to push the boundaries of her style, finding a colorful pair of pants and pairing it with an old band t-shirt could be perfect for any casual outing.
Scrunchies are back
Who knew, eh? The fun little hair bands are back and they’re a perfect accessory for all your athleisure looks. Pull your hair up into a high ponytail and style it up with a scrunchie to look effortlessly adorable! You could also try some of these hairstyle ideas if you want to bring more variety to your everyday favorite accessory.
Sleek and metallic
The easiest way to instantly look glamorous? Wear something metallic! While you can always go for a dress, it can end up overwhelming you and looking tacky, so the best way to approach it is to simply focus on accessories. A pair of silvery heels can make a little black dress look incredibly youthful and fun, and a metallic belt can style up even the most boring pair of pants. Another great idea is metallic bags, particularly if you’re looking for a versatile accessory that can turn any outfit into a party outfit, or simply to bring something fresh to your casual getups.
Fringed skirts, dresses and pants are having a comeback, and if you’re looking for something sassy and fun to wear, you can easily incorporate them into your outfits. They work well for gals who enjoy that hippie boho style and can pair their fringed shirts with a maxi skirt and leather sandals.
Cute bum bags
Belt bags are a trendy new thing to wear around your waist, and luckily there are many options around to suit almost any style. From small leather bags that almost look like a part of a steampunk costume, to sporty bum bags that look amazing when paired with simple leggings and an oversized hoodie. This is a pretty practical accessory to have when you don’t want to lug a huge bag around with you, and it looks pretty cool in combination with oversized sunglasses.
Straw bags and wide-brimmed hats are one of the most popular trends for this year. They are wonderful beach accessories, but they can work just as well for you casual walks around the town or when paired with cute summer dresses and sandals.
