One thing I was doing on vaca last week, outside of beachin’ & stuffing my face, was checking my fav fashion blogs and Insta handles to get updates on New York Fashion Week. The shows are great, sure, but I enjoy perusing the street style looks just as much (if not more). Amidst the expected trends (think Gucci overload, sneakers galore, off-shoulder/cold-shoulder, distressed & cropped denim), there were a few less obvious trends that surfaced. These may not all be “new” per se, but I expect for these trends to shift from fashionista to mainstream within the next season. Get on them while you can!
The statement shoe has always been a thing, but I noticed more eccentric features – vibrant colors, embroidery, fur, metallics. You can up-level any simple outfit with one of these bad boys.We saw this 90s look on Kendall in the early spring, and it looks like it’s here to stay. Initially, it was a tee under a spaghetti strap slip dress, but it’s expanded beyond that. We’re seeing floral & crochet dresses paired with button down, sheer & even silk blouses! I’m still adjusting to all of the 90s throwbacks, but this one is starting to grow on me.Another trend I struggle with but can appreciate, mixing patterns. It’s happening more often, and more drastic than ever. Key message: don’t be afraid to take risks, you may surprise yourself (noted).This one is one of my favorites. Velvet is just plain sexy & luxurious. I’m loving the booties, camisoles, dresses, blazers…any and everything velvet. So IN.Monochrome is back, and I’m digging it. There is something clean & polished about wearing different shades of the same color. It’s super sophisticated and chic. Can’t wait to see more of this trend – I even rocked monochrome earlier this week on Insta #killinit.
