What we saw this year from our favorite style icons and in our fashion week shows, as always, served as a preview for the guidebook on what is to be in vogue in the present and near future.
Berets Two falls ago I decided that the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe would be a black beret. My exact thought to myself was, “everyone is gonna be wearing these in another year or two.” Here we are. Although they haven’t flooded timelines across the board, they are popping up here and there. Even incorporated into some Halloween costumes. Some hits, some misses. Regardless, I guarantee the next time I go into a fast fashion store, I will see an assortment of them. I try not to be one of those people who refuses to wear an item because everyone else is…but I haven’t worn my black thigh high boots in over a year (which I also purchased before they were everywhere) I haven’t pulled out the beret yet and I definitely can’t promise any appearances.

Modesty Even though I am petite, I love clothes that are cozy and loose-fitting, so you know I am here for this trend! Whether a “tall tee” or roomy pant or sleeve, I’m all in. Another trend I am an early adapter of is dresses over pants. I’m all for mixing and matching and throwing a dress over some pants or jeans is a great way to create a new outfit or even wear something summery in the cold.
Soft, Feminine Glam In the midst of streetwear’s takeover and roomy clothes, there has also been a rise in effortless glamour in both fashion and beauty.
Something that I love to see because of our society’s current state. This trend is a reflection of our need for feminine energy. Coincidentally, the supermoons are happening and evoking it. Some characteristics of this feminine energy are synthesizing, being creative, and intuitive. Sounds like putting an outfit together or changing the world to me.
Sequins What is more feminine and glam than sequins? You can literally light up a dark room with your head to toe glow.
The perfect example of the sequins done right is the lovely Alycia Bella. I’m a fan.
Skirts There hasn’t been a time that we just aren’t wearing skirts, but I love that right now that we are having more fun with the designs and moving further from midi and embracing mini and long too.
Beauty Complement these trends with your face, whether you prefer to beat it or keep it fresh. Either way, we are doing what is necessary to achieve a glow from each angle. Although a glossy lip is a classic, it seems to be a preference over a matte lip right now. Also, for a galactic glow from your makeup this winter, turn to only Fenty Beauty & Pat McGrath’s latest collection.
Vertical Stripes As we are doing our best to make our money longer in 2018, stripes are helping us look longer too.
Logomania It only makes sense that the days of thinking of logos as a little tacky have passed with the importance of the brand and visuals increasing because of social media. Bring out the Aeropostale and Hollister tees! JK, but I have seen a lot of Von Dutch resurfacing and I am personally not all the way okay with this yet.
Suiting Suiting Suiting I have always loved Menswear or Menswear inspired on women. I personally shop in the men’s section as I’ve shared before and was even accused of stealing my friend’s shirt because I own the same one as him. There is just something about the craftsmanship being more structured and simultaneously roomy makes it perfect. You can also create a perfect balance to keep it sexy by putting a bralette underneath a blazer or going pantless.
Hemlines Looks like we’re dropping the standard 5/8 hem and taking full creative control of our hems. Whether its flooding or a fringe, it’s in!
