Two Trends You Need to Own for Spring 2018
Fashion Week season is fast approaching and our feeds are about to get inundated with styles from around the world! It is always interesting to determine and pick the styles that will take over as current trends. Two of my favorite trends are currently on fire and worth investing in for the seasons ahead.
First one is the plaid blazer. We saw this trend all over social media this past season, but rest assured the classic item is here to stay. With so many options to choose from I opted for a one with shades of brown. This style has that grandpa chic vibe which will always be classic. Use it for work or a fancy outing and it will not disappoint.
A plaid blazer elevates your standard jeans and t-shirt look immediately. Add a studded pointy-toe bootie, which is another hot item to have in your arsenal. This blazer is an easy choice, but be sure to choose one tailored to your own frame. The oversized look is in, but you must be cautious to avoid looking frumpy. Try wrapping a belt around the waist to add that ahead of the game touch to your ensemble.
A plaid blazer is one of those garments that has a universal appeal and will keep you looking sleek and polished with its sharp shoulders and a long line fit. The best element to this trend is that there is no specific designer that does this item the best. So have some fun and look for this style of blazer in a vintage store or a high-end department store.
Another noteworthy trend of the season is a bold stripe. I use the word ‘Bold’ to mean ‘loud’ and ‘vibrant’. If you choose to rock this trend, do not shy away from the brightest and most eye-catching bold stripe you can find.
For instance, take this retro jumpsuit I scored from my favorite brand in a bright green stripe. The silhouette and color makes this a statement maker weather worn with casual flats or chunky heels and a blazer. For a final touch try finishing off with funky shades and a loud broche.
Go ahead ladies and take full advantage of the statement stripe trend or the blazer. You are sure to have all eyes on you in a way you can feel great about.
