Along with the promise of a fresh start, the New Year has brought with it quite a few fashion trends…some which I absolutely love and others which I must admit make me a tad nervous. Here are a few trends that have caught my eye:
No, they don’t just belong in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Western movie reference 😉 )! This season fringes can be found on anything from bikini tops to sandals and dresses, but my personal favourite is on crop tops and sling bags. This trend certainly adds spice to an outfit and it’s a great way to show some skin without baring it all. I’m not too sure if I like the fringe on jackets though, this takes me back to the Wild Wild West and I just don’t think I’d be good at a stand-off 😉 …but I must say that the more I look at the jacket below, the more it grows on me.
This trend can look amazing if you pull it off just right. Be weary of the positioning of the stripes – especially around the waist area. When statement stripes are paired with a bold, bright colour it can look fab!
It seems that what once was a fashion no-no is now no longer taboo. Olivia Palermo, Jennifer Lopez, Miranda Kerr and Miss Riri herself are among those who have joined the denim revival. I think I might just join them 😉
The drop-waist dress
Not only is this style adorable, it is flattering too! For you shortys out there (I can relate!), I think I’ve found the secret to looking tall! Shshshsh, let’s keep it between us shall we.
Comfy and funky – what’s not to love? Grab a pair of statement sneakers and head out looking street chic! I absolutely love statement sneakers with a pair of shorts, skirt or a dress. This style is so versatile and will have you looking uber cool with the added benefit of comfort!
