Trends to Wear Right Now!
I just love fashion trends and I am super excited about current trends, especially ones that are totally flattering for all body types.
Are you looking for some stylish trend inspirations to rock this spring? Here I'll be covering five trendy pieces that should be part of your wardrobe, stat! And the cherry on top is that not only are these hot now, you can say they're classic staples, creating a perfect balance between trendy and timeless. Furthermore, they're super easy to pull off.
Top Fashion Trends in 2013
Now the drum-roll, please. The five hottest trends that you should be wearing if you are (or want to be) a hot and trendy chica are:
- Leather... everything!
- Leggings... are still in!
- Black and White
- A Baseball Cap
The material that gives any outfit an edge - leather, is back. This spring, colored leather is in and is to be incorporated into your outfit with either just a subtle studded leather bracelet or a hot leather jacket, or even dress!
Now there's no need to spurge on authentic leather, there are plenty of faux leather alternatives to be found. I personally love my pleather from H&M and ASOS. These pieces are not only cheaper, no animals were hurt in their creation, and they're uber sexy.
Leather outfit no-no: Don't pair multiple leather pieces at once!
Are jeggings hot or not?
Faux Skinny Leather Pants
Leggings are comfy and have been a recurring trend for years, evolving in all sorts of directions. Let's explore the different types of leggings!
- The leggings trend started off with the basic black legging but now leggings are available in all sorts of colors, patterns, and graphics.
- A recent leggings trend is taking leggings to new heights - jeggings, which is a hybrid leggings/jeans. I personally adore my jeggings but some say jeggings are a big no-no. What do you think?
- While leggings have been adored by us girls, men are catching on to the trend and wearing meggings! Yep, you heard that right, men's leggings.
Outfit starring your leggings tip: Pair your leggings (or jeggings/meggings) with a loose-fitted top.
The classic Americana fabric - denim, has expanded beyond just jeans and jackets this season into pieces like tops, handbags, and my favorite new look - the denim blouse. Then there's also distressed denim.
The peplum is a trend to be embraced by all fashionastas. This spring staple creates the illusion of an ideal hour-glass shaped figure (or conceals a beer belly), no matter your figure.
I absolutely adore my peplum dresses and tops. My next quest - a detachable peplum belt!
How to Color Block Outfits
What's color blocking? All it means is pairing outfits using blocks of contrasting colors together.
Color blocking has been in for a few years, but this season, bigger bolder color blocks are the way to go.
Black and White Trend
The black-and-white trend is hot this season and the best thing about it, it's already in your closet! The chic color duo is really easy to pull off by using timeless pieces you can wear season after season.
Black and white clothing tip: Color block!
Baseball Cap Trend
Sporty equals sexy right now with the baseball cap trend. Incorporating a cap into a wardrobe has become the thing, and not just on bad hair days.
There's jeweled ones, floral, leather, and of course the traditional one with your favorite baseball team's logo. I'm personally looking for the perfect leather cap.
