Trends to Wear Right Now!

Updated on October 12, 2013

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.

Peplum Trend


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:

  1. Leather... everything!
  2. Leggings... are still in!
  3. Denim
  4. Peplum
  5. Black and White
  6. A Baseball Cap

Leather Everything

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?

Leggings Trend

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.


Denim Trend

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.

Peplum Trend

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.

      @donnah73, you're right, meggings may not be every guy's forte (or most!). I totally agree that seeing leather, as well as black and white staying 'in' is pretty awesome!

      @Natashalh, wow props to your man for trying on a pair of meggings! I also recently got a pair of jeggings and totally love em!

      @Kalmiya, I also really love the blight floral print right now - such a fun and springy look!

      The legging/jegging item is one of my favourites as I'm not very tall and it helps keep proportions down. Another fav right now is the stretch jean/jegging that has a bright floral print ! Great for spring/summer and nice and bright. Voted up!

      I love leggings and I just got a pair of jeggings. I convinced my man to try on a pair, but they really weren't him! I have to say I don't like the peplum. Or, rather, I like it on other people but not me! I have a small bust, slender waist, and wider hips, so it just makes me look even more unbalanced!

      Meggings? Hysterical. I fear that could lead to some unfortunate fashion "don'ts." Glad to see leather and black and white are still trendy. Those are two everyone can pull off with comfort and confidence.
