1. Oversized ‘Boyfriend’ Jackets
Create a long line silhouette and play with shapes with an 80s-inspired oversized boyfriend blazer. With the help of shoulder pads, this outerwear can cinche in your waist and elongates your legs. Rock this look with a pair of straight-leg trousers or leather shorts for an ultra-modern style – colors that suit this trend are powder blue, charcoal, and neutrals. You can easily dress this up or down for an effortlessly chic aesthetic.

2. The Classic Scarf
Choose from a silky design with floral motifs or intricate patterns, or keep it simple with bold colors and block letters. When styling this accessory, you can wear as a headscarf by wrapping the fabric under your chin in a loose knot, or have it hanging off the back of your head – mix things up by wrapping it around your neck or let it dangle from your bag. Channeling your inner Grace Kelly has never been easier with this classic go-to item.

3. On-Trend Sorbet Pastel Tones
Another trend that has continued to dominate this year has been pastel tones. These sorbet-inspired colors are the perfect option for summer and they suit a wide variety of skin tones. Choose from a boiler suit in cool mint green or an oversized trench coat in soft lavender – better yet, try them both simultaneously. Suits and separates in the soft and buttery hues elevate your overall aesthetic and will remain one of the chicest styles for seasons to come.

5. Yellow and Camel Color Trends
Keep it neutral with yellow and camel color styling – one of the coolest fashion trends taken from the 70s has gotten a serious facelift. Mixing and matching these shades adds dimension and depth to your ensembles, no matter the clothes you prefer to wear. Try a light brown suit or coat with a mustard turtleneck for the cooler months or a sleek tan T-shirt and camel pair of flare pants. This subtle yet flattering combination is the hottest look to try this season.

6. Pop of Blue
Why blend in when you were born to stand out? Add a pop of blue to your monochrome outfit to update your go-to outfits. The beauty behind this fashion trend is the unlimited amount of options you can try throughout the season – from a duck egg blue handbag from Dior to a chic Marine Serre bucket hat, you can try it all. When styling these items, opt for all black or grey outfits. The bright hue will stand out amongst the deeper shades. Mix and match your accessories and discover a new favorite way to rock your key pieces.

7. Fringing on the Bags
When it’s time to get with current fashion trends, you can simply let your handbag do the talking. This season, one of the biggest looks we’ve seen is the fringing on the bags. Let the tassels dangle close to the fabric or watch them almost hit the floor for maximum impact – the over-the-top design is sure to turn some heads and keep you feeling chic. Choose from a leather fringe or shearling – you can rock this piece any season, and make it work for almost any event. For a classic feel, choose dark hues like brown or black, but if you want to stand out from the others, take a dip into bold shades like red or green. If you’re ready to shake up your go-to style, this is the item to pick!
