Top trends for the new year begin with saying goodbye to skinny jeans and saying hello to some fresh, new styles. Denim is finally changing lanes and this year we will see a major comeback of straight leg, bootcut, cargo and flare leg jeans. The high-waisted styles will move into low-waisted, low-slung versions that will flatter any body type.
The overly distressed, completely cut up, ripped styles have seen their day and now denim is trending with cleaner, more polished versions incorporating unique details such as ties, buttons and fun patterns. Subtle distressing on denim was still a hit on all the major runways for this spring but slightly looser, baggier styles took center stage.
It’s not difficult to style these denim trends when you keep things proportionate. Pairing a cropped sweater with a baggier style jean is perfect or adding stilettos and a crisp white blouse for the evening is an easy, chic way to elevate your look.
I have the lowdown on this season’s hottest bags. There are a few styles that are making their mark. From very versatile hues and simple structures to faux fur & lots of logos. These are the trendiest ways to carry your things from one place to another!
You can shop and find these bags at almost every price point. Luxe leather and suede bags are timeless, whether in a classic shape or unusual style this is the bag you should invest in this season. Big, huge bags were all over the fall runways and it’s a trend that I find very useful, whether for a weekend stay or off to work, you can always find a reason to love your big bag.
If you really want to get noticed then logo-mania should interest you. From two-tone, fun choices by Prada to classic insignia from Gucci, your labels will surely turn heads. My favorite bag this season is the Saint Laurent suede shoulder bag. Wow!
And last but not least is the fuzzy, furry bags that make us embrace the winter and cold weather. These fun bags can be worn casually or with a black-tie holiday ensemble. I have seen these styles at every price point so not spending a lot on this seasonal trend is a smart choice.
