A new year is the perfect chance to make waves in your closet. See it as the perfect opportunity to purge items that no longer fit or look nice, or just don’t bring you joy anymore. Cash in those Christmas gift cards, make some returns for store credit, and splurge on a couple of items that tell baby new year you’re ready for change!
Pinterest’s search data is forecasting some major style secrets for 2018. In the ever-changing world of fashion, a few trends may look familiar (wide pants, preppy logos), while others look a little brave and new (embellishments from head to toe). But no matter which way your fashion game takes you, being uniquely you is the best “look” you can have.
Livin’ la vida LOGO
The 90s weren’t totally back until we started wearing brands on our sleeves again. Feeling preppy?
Big and bold baubles
Structured statement earrings are the way to accessorize in 2018. In fact, the bigger the better, like these Dart Earrings from 2Bandits ($78.00).
So long skinny jeans, hello wide leg pants
We sure hope you kept your bellbottoms and flares, because wide legs are making a comeback. Be a little daring with these Palazzo Pants from Forever 21 ($24.90).
Vive la beret!
Oh la la! Even if you can’t make it to the Eiffel Tower any time soon, you can still channel the Parisian scene in this Du Jour Beret from Free People ($28.00, available in 15 colors).
Living in layers
Put it on, and on, and on. From long sweaters to dusters and kimonos, keep things extra cozy and ready for all weather by layering up.
Patently perfect plastic
With spring weather comes the need to keep dry. Enter patent leather and lucite, whose searches have spiked over 100%. These Glad to See the Back of ‘Em Patent Boots from Nasty Gal ($60.00 sale) will be spotted everywhere soon enough.
Side slits for days
Slits are just for dresses and skirts anymore. Play peekaboo with your closet by opting for pants, tunics, and sweaters with eyebrow raising slit details.
Denim that keeps it 💯 (100% cotton, that is)
Chances are your existing denim is a mixture of stretchy material that hugs your curves. But 100% denim is more breathable, and a total throwback to the original style. Levi’s, like the one’s above, are classic for a reason.
Sheerly appealing socks
Do NOT hide your socks under footwear. Instead, add some wow-factor to your outfit by pairing it with an adorable pair of socks, like these Tulle Dalmation Sheer Crew socks from ban.do ($28).
Footwear with flair
Think gemstones, buckles, and all the hype your tootsies can muster. These Caspar loafers from Sole Society ($89.95) have sweet little pearls that add a feminine touch, and an air of sophistication.
