As one of the boldest trends of the season, these cropped tops are a great addition to any wardrobe this year. No matter the season, be it summer or winter, this outfit can be worn with countless pieces to create an interesting ensemble. Try it with a suit, which is the perfect look for the office or walking around town – the contrast between the structured tailoring and the top provides a perfect juxtaposition for a transitional season. It’s also great for layering – find something with long or asymmetrical sleeves to keep you comfortable when the temperature drops. From an evening out to a daytime event, this is a popular model among fashion lovers all over the world.
2. Color Block
Gone are the days when contrasting colors were a fashion faux pas – this season, color blocking is back in style. Bold and bright, these outfits are loud and not for the faint of heart. Try mixing warm tones like orange and pink, or use cool tones like green and blue for a refreshing twist. While a duo-chrome set is the most popular choice, throwing a third or fourth shade into the mix adds complexity and a little more oomph to the overall aesthetic. Instead of adding color to clothes, try a bold hat, bag or shoes for a special touch.
3. Corset Belts
The corset belt trend is nothing new, but it often comes back every season. This waist-tightening accessory works well with a variety of outfits, and this year we’re seeing it paired with knits, blazers, and dresses. Some of the most popular styles come from designers like Loewe, who accentuate the hourglass shape with a peplum sticking out from the waist. Burlesque styles are also favored in the fashion community, often flaunted with t-shirts, collars and dresses. With such an eye-catching item as part of your outfit, you can avoid adding extra embellishments like necklaces and earrings.
4. Cowgirl Hats
As cowboy boots have become popular, it’s only natural for hats to join the trend as well. This versatile accessory looks great when accentuating a simple outfit on a day out with your friends. Worn with a suit of a similar tone, it can add some extra complexity to an outfit without looking too over the top. Slightly camp but totally trendy, it has become a mainstay for lovers of the Gucci aesthetic. Experiment with a mix of tailored shirts, leather jackets and oversized blazers.
With lots of texture and movement, fringe details are an amazing addition to your everyday look. You can find jackets, shirts and skirts in frayed fabric, but a popular choice this season is opting for a combination that moves with every step. You can mix this look with other trends on this list like color block or green all over – all of which work well with this fashion must-have. Try a turtleneck camel coat and jeans when the temperature drops, or opt for a sweater, fringed skirt and boots for a perfect fall outfit. You can rock this look any season of the year, and it looks great in photos thanks to its fantastic movement.
6. Green throughout
From Instagram to the streets of Fashion Week, green is the color of choice this season. Whether lemon or emerald, the tone has taken over collections by Bottega Veneta , Ganni and many others. Style it with multiple shades from the same palette, or you can go head-to-toe with a single shade. Try it as a dress, a blazer and turtleneck combo, or patchwork pants with a casual tee.
7. Fall/Winter Trends: Head-to-toe Jeans
Sure, the double denim trend has come and gone and it certainly comes off as a fashion faux pas at times, but this can be an amazing look when done right. This season, opt for an oversized jacket and jeans with patchwork or vintage flare – flares are a popular choice among fashion darlings. For a more ’60s look, try a mini skirt with colorful tights or a long coat. You don’t have to stick to a monochromatic look either – mix different fabric shades for a more modern style.
8. Hot pink coats
From one major color trend to another, the shade of hot pink has donated the fashion scene for quite some time now. Launched by Versace last year, it has since become the heroic tone of Valentino, Barbie x Balmain and other designers this season on the runway. It’s easy to style with color, but you can also pair it with a classic white t-shirt or patterned pants, boots, or a mini skirt. We’ve seen plenty of quilted puffers and bomber jackets in this shade, but blazers, wool, and faux fur coats also work great in cooler climates.
9. Sneakers with straps
Strap shoes combine traditional ballet shoes with strappy sandals and are a subtle, flexible trend that you can wear with anything. Jumping on the preppy styles we’ve seen from the likes of Miu Miu and Thom Browne, these shoes add a delicate element to your outfit while still retaining the vintage feel. Work with a miniskirt or leather shorts in warmer temperatures, or add them to dark socks for a more punk aesthetic. With so many variations available, you can find something that matches your style and blends in with your existing collection.
10. Autumn/Winter Trends: Leather Sets
This season is all about matching outfits, like a full leather ensemble. Inspired by the motorcycle scene of the 70s and 80s, this bold aesthetic adds a high-fashion touch to the classic combination. Running jackets in red, black or white colors are the right choice, but you can also come out of the box wearing a bright shade like blue or green. It doesn’t have to be pants, necessarily, also skirts – whether above the knee or ankles – intertwine a hyper-feminine style that effortlessly juxtaposes typically masculine attire. Finish off the look with chunky boots or high heels.
