The New Year is a magical time to make changes and improve your quality of life. So many opportunities are available to us, whether it’s starting a new career or making the most of our time off. The great thing about fashion is that so many trends come and go with the wind, making it an easy choice each New Year to set new goals and focus on being more fabulous in the year to come. Here are some tips for keeping your wardrobe fresh and looking hot this season:
Hoodies Under Blazers
This year, we’ve seen a rise in the hoodie. With so many options to wear, you’re sure to find one that works for you. They come in all different styles, fits, and colors, so there’s something for everyone. While they may have become more of a workwear item, they also received a fashion update with flowy tops and cropped sweatshirts. Whether you’re looking for a simple option or something a little more creative, a hoodie under a traditional blazer is always a great option. Try pairing it with your favorite kicks for a weekend in the city.
Having a petal, tulip, or daisy on your finger is a surefire way to make everyone stop and take notice. Whether you choose to adorn your feet with super adorable slippers or sport your favorite flower in a pair of platform sandals, florals are always a hot trend this year. Many are worn with a suit, but can look perfect dressed down with a pair of jeans or a sweatshirt. Flowers are also one of the easiest trends to pair with other color options, so use that to your advantage. A simple pair of black trousers works great with daisies or petals. Try pairing them with another flower or some bright, open-air wear for a fresh and airy feel. This year look for different styles of dresses with floral prints.
This year, you’re going to see a lot of bold, bright colors. From bright red to bright blue, yellow to red, and orange to blue, there’s something for everyone. The key to successfully pairing these colors is to keep them balanced. While you don’t want your outfit to be all over the place, you also don’t want it to be boring either. The key here is to find a few colors that go well together and work with your wardrobe. Think about what your other clothes are wearing and how they pair. If your T-shirt is orange and your jeans are blue, or your shirt is red and your skirt is green, you’ve got a bit of color clashing on your hands. These types of color clashing will create the best results.
Chunky, or worn-in, loafers are a classic that still manages to be relevant today. Whether you pair them with a suit or a pair of shorts, they always look good with anything. They come in all sorts of patterns, styles, and colors and can be worn with most clothing items. Try wearing them with a pair of skinny jeans or with a pair of shorts for a more casual look. If you’re not the type to wear your loafers with socks, they can be worn with almost any clothing item, making them a great summer shoe.
There’s no question that Goth is back in style, and with good reason. The movement is still steeped in history and is often associated with sadness, desolation, and the undead. This year, though, Goth is taking a different spin with a more fashionable and youthful approach to the look. There are so many options for the Goth look this year that it can be hard to choose just one! You can try pairing your Goth look with other 80s-inspired clothing items, like a pair of acid-wash jeans, a white T-shirt, and black flats. For a more sophisticated take on the Goth look, try adding some color to your look with bold accessories such as a bright red scarf, bright blue hair, or bold eyeglasses.
Wide Leg Pants
Having a go-to pair of wide-leg pants is a must this season. Whether you pair them with a suit or a pair of jeans, they always look good. A classic choice, wide-leg pants were first worn by soldiers in the Civil War. Afterward, they were used by ranchers and miners as well as celebrities like Bono and Kanye West. These days, wide-leg pants are worn by everyone, regardless of their social status. They are comfortable, easy to wear, and always make for a versatile look. Try pairing them with a tracksuit or a pair of board shorts for a casual look. If you’re looking for a more dressy look, pair them with a suit for a classic, old-fashioned look.
Now that you know some of the latest trends, it’s time to get creative and make your wardrobe more fashionable. So, follow these clothing tips and you’ll be well on your way to looking great in the new year.
