Even so we should admit that trends have changed too. The industry is playing it rather safe these days so brands stick with what works and buyers follow this scheme anyway. One could say: No risk no fun! And we agree from the fashion point of view. But looking at the economy and the drastic changes that online shopping brought along it is not easy to explore new waters.

And that is why there was one trend that was so welcomed by everyone. And that shares some great optimism. Happy prints combined with strong printed messages. Encouraging and motivating positive vibes for the little people in our lives!

What else? Let’s have a look:

Brands are going colourful. Yes – primary colours like red or blue were even incorporated by brands that used to follow the darker range of colours until now. (Loud Apparel or Little Creative Factory for example)

Otherwise we found a lot of pre-washed colours, pink tones (another trend that is here to stay it seems) as well as pastels. Maybe the black and white focus starts to shift?!
A propos pink: You will find pink in the boys section next summer as well. A lot actually!

For fabrics there will be a lot of terry, natural cotton and linen. The whole organic aspect is growing which is wonderful. Nowadays you can definitely and easily choose to buy organic and still have a stylish wardrobe. It is great to see brands taking responsibility, looking for solutions and the best production methods!

Further:

Ruffles: Yes, still there. And everywhere. Adapted by a few brands that you would not expect so there will be a ruffle for every taste next summer.

Embroidery: A beautiful way of adorning clothing and there will be lovely patterns coming your way.

Fringes: You probably noticed this trend in the women’s wear department for this winter. There will be lots for children next year too.

Prints: Smileys, messages, rainbows.

Sporty: The athleticism influence is real and you can find a lot of comfortable looks. Elastic finishes or light wear fabrics are adapted from the sports wear sector.

We hoped you like what is coming next year and for now we focus on the new

The smallest details can really make a huge difference to your outfit. Reminiscent of 1960s boho style, frayed edges on clothing are everywhere in 2019. Raw, artfully frayed seams look effortlessly casual and add an edge to your ensemble. From a subtly undone hem to tattered, fringed seams, this attention to detail in the tailoring can really elevate an outfit. And we don’t just mean ripped jeans – although frayed denim is a great way to start sporting this style. This micro-trend has truly taken off with designers getting creative and experimenting with covering shirts, dresses and skirts with rows of frayed edges.

How To Wear Frayed Denim

Frayed edges on denim is an easy, versatile style. It can also be paired up with a dressier ensemble.

  • Pair your frayed jeans with more polished wardrobe pieces like a tailored blazer or a delicate silk blouse to stop your whole aesthetic becoming too DIY.
  • Wear a pair of denim shorts with frayed edges with a striped top and some gladiator sandals.
  • You don’t have to only go for jeans or shorts – a frayed denim skirt is a great all-purpose wardrobe piece. A longer pencil type denim skirt is a quirky and interesting addition to any outfit.

Creative Frayed Trends

It’s not just denim getting the tattered treatment – we’ve also seen shirts, skirts, and dresses of all fabrics.

  • For summer, slightly frayed or fringed edges on a top are perfect for giving that laidback vibe. Choose a loose, white cropped top and pair it with a fedora, high waisted denim shorts and wedged sandals, for a look that’s sure to become your everyday summer staple
  • Recently, frayed and fringed trims have not been confined to seams of skirts and trousers, as some brands have gone all out to produce some striking results.
  • We’ve seen full on tassels on skirts and dresses, for a really unique and eye-catching look.
  • An embellished frayed jacket makes for a fantastic statement piece. Wear it as a casual but edgy look with slouchy jeans and ankle boots.

Frayed edges on clothing are a perfect way to inject some laidback vibes into your summer wardrobe, and this style is so versatile it will always come in handy. How will you be wearing it this summer?

Federica is effortlessly wearing the distressed trend; her cropped jeans match perfectly with the white top and black leather jacket. The frayed edges give this look a really casual feel, and we cannot get enough of it!

If your fall outfits need a refreshing new addition, you should buy a pencil skirt! With its form-flattering design and variety of lengths, pencil skirts channel the sassy vibes of our vintage bombshells and take any professional wardrobe up a notch. Read on for tips on how to style pencil skirts and check out photos of our favorite pencil skirt-centric fall outfits below.

Styling Your Pencil Skirts for Work

Transitioning your cute spring outfits into work-ready styles is simple with the versatile pencil skirt. Whether you’re a fan of the classic black pencil skirt or something a little more vibrant, pairing this staple piece with a smart blouse and the right accessories will instantly transform you into a professional fashion guru.

  • Start with neutral colors like beige, black, grey, and white to ease into the pencil skirt life/
  • Traditional patterns like houndstooth, plaid, and trendy chambray add a texture element to an otherwise sleek and stylish pencil skirt.
  • For a chic and subtle pop of color try deeper shades like maroon and navy. For a more vibrant spring outfit try royal blue, goldenrod or even pastel pink, mint green and canary yellow.
  • Never underestimate the power of a black pencil skirt, white button-down and blazer combo. Hello, power suit.

Making Your Pencil Skirt Outfit Less Vintage and More Modern

Despite the retro vibe every pencil skirt naturally gives its wearer, this classic design can easily be modernized with a few choice tops, shoes, and accessories. Pairing a casual, cotton pencil skirt with a crop top transforms it into a modern, comfortable look. Pair a nylon-blend, form-fitting pencil skirt with a matching white crop top and you’re a contemporary stunner, ready for a night out with Beyonce.

  • For an edgy look, pair a black pencil skirt with chunky ankle boots, a studded belt and a jean jacket. Punk it up.
  • Crop it like it’s hot. Pair your new skirt with crop tops and a colorful cardi or leather jacket to turn your style up a few decades.
  • Become one with your accessories! A cute brooch may scream 1950s, but a chunky necklace and some gladiator sandals are modern staples.

Creating Pencil Skirt Outfits for All Occasions

The benefit of having a pencil skirt in your closet is you’ll always have something to wear to any occasion. Whether you need a quick style for heading back to school, an eye-catching look for a celebration with friends, or something a little more romantic for a date night, the pencil skirt has you covered. Pencil skirts are an ideal item of clothing for any special occasion, pair them with floral patterns for spring outfits or pair them with lace and love (just not in white) for fall weddings.

  • Pencil skirts come in lots of lengths, show off your legs with an above-the-knee skirt and stilettos or rock it casual with a long skirt and stylish flats or sneakers.
  • Go glam with silver and gold accessories like chandelier earrings, sparkling statement necklaces and bangles for bracelets.
  • A sophisticated wedding calls for a classic style with a sleek silhouette. Turn in your wild patterns and frills for pearls, and if you’re a little more daring, red heels.
  • When in doubt, go minimalist with black-on-black or black and white and leave your accessories at home.

One of the best things about pencil skirt s is they’re made for every body type and can easily be styled to fit your own brand. Whether your pencil skirt means big business in the boardroom or bar-hopping in NYC, this iconic piece is sure to liven up your spring wardrobe. From flirty spring outfits to cool winter get-togethers, pencil skirts are the versatile piece you need in your collection right now. What’s your favorite way to wear a pencil skirt?

Pairing a tight-fitting pencil skirt (the lace is a bonus), classic pumps and a thick sweater provides style (and warmth) for those inbetween days.

Harper’s Bazaar counts down for us, some of the hottest spring street styles. The runways and magazines are great places to turn for fashion inspiration, but sometimes the best inspiration comes from taking a closer look at what people are wearing on the street.  We all see how our favorite items look on hangers in the store, but it’s truly inspirational when you get to see them paired with other hot items by people on the street.

The first street-trend in the Harper’s Bazaar article I’d like to focus on has already exploded in the market with colorful designs and cool platforms. I predict the sport sneakers trend is here to stay for a while with fresh and even-cooler styles.

I believe sporty-sneakers are in for a long rotation because, who doesn’t love a trend that is stylish, comfortable, and practical all at the same time?!  Best of all, you can dress them up or dress them down depending on what you wear with them.  Want to wear a skirt? No problem! Your funky sneakers will make your look chic and stylish, just like in the picture featured below.

The next thing we’ve learned from the street is, overalls are awesome! Light blue denim, dark blue denim, leather; they can all be used to make a stylish pair of overalls.  Whether you like the typical overall pants or overalls as a dress, this trend is not only hot and heavy on the streets, it’s also filling up the racks in all our favorite stores.  If you like this trend, check out these slightly distressed overalls from Zara.

Another trend on the street is the shirt-dress. The button down shirt dress is so versatile because you can wear it on it’s own, wear it with tights, put a cute belt around it to dress it up, or throw a sweater over top for extra warmth.

Style.com features some of the hottest shirt-dress ensembles, like the one in the featured image. Throw on some high heels and a hobo bag with your white shirt-dress and everyone will turn heads as you’re crossing the street.

You can never go wrong wearing a little black dress to your holiday parties. However, shopping for a little black dress can be a daunting task when there are so many different styles available. Although there are so many options, we’ve narrowed it down to six common styles to help you figure out which one best suits your taste! There’s the cut-out dress, the simple high-neck with a flare skirt, the spaghetti strap dress, the long-sleeve bodycon, the strapless bodycon, and the halter.

The cut-out dress is for the woman who’s fearless in her fashion choices. On the other end of the spectrum is the simple high-neck dress with a playful flare A-line skirt. A plain black cocktail dress can be dulled up with a fancy chunky necklace or a bold handbag to give it that extra bit of flavor you’re craving!

The spaghetti strap dress is a great option when you want to look sexy but you want a dress that won’t fall down when you’re dancing the night away! The halter dress will also keep you looking sexy on the dance floor. Ready to show off your beautiful shoulders and strong arms? The halter dress will do wonders making your upper body look great!

If you’re looking for more coverage and don’t want to bare it all in the cold weather, there are lots of long-sleeve dresses to choose from this winter. The one in the featured image is great because it incorporates one of the hottest trends this season: the tie-up plunge neckline.

While all of these styles are flattering in their own way, you can never go wrong with the classic strapless bandage dress. This kind of dress will show off your shoulders and accentuate your beautiful curves. Choose the classic strapless bodycon if you want to look effortlessly sexy!

From silk to satin and loose to tailored, pyjamas as daywear has been the 2016 fashion trend we’ve seen all fashion bloggers, editors and street style stars work their magic on. Boudoir elegance is no longer restricted to the bedroom!

How To Wear The Pyjamas Trend

The key is to aim for stylish luxe, not lazy loungewear. Read our top tips to help you style the trend.

  • To avoid looking like you’ve just rolled out of bed, stay away from cotton fabrics. Instead, go for soft silks and shiny satin shirts
  • When choosing shirts, look for distinguishable pyjama details – we’re talking side piping, an open neckline and loose sleeves.
  • Play with proportions to add more interest to your outfit. An oversized pyjama inspired shirt and skinny jeans are a match made in heaven.
  • Finishing the sleepwear look off with heels is a must, keeping your look polished, classy and chic.

Ways To Accessorise Your Pyjama Inspired Look

Need some ideas on how to add those finishing touches? From jewelry to coats, we’ve got you covered:

  • Jewelry is a great way to dress up your outfit day or night. Offset the soft fabrics with bold earrings, a statement ring or a boyfriend watch.
  • Think the whole look is too feminine? Tough it up with a gold detail statement bag or leather clutch.
  • Worried about how to add cover up a co-ord? Textured coats in faux fur or a belted kimono will keep the look current and sophisticated.
  • Pairing your pyjama inspired piece with a bold red lip or a pair of shades adds just the perfect touch of glam.

When To Wear The Pyjamas Trend

The pyjamas trend is both versatile and comfy, so whether you’re running errands or heading to a work meeting – we guarantee your outfit will turn heads for the right reasons!

  • For brunch with the girls, team up a blush pink shirt with your favourite blue jeans and nude gladiators.
  • To turn heads in a boardroom, opt for a blazer kimono with tailored trousers and a dash of red lippie.
  • A night out in the town calls for a silk black pyjama inspired shirt teamed with leather trousers and killer heels.
  • Shop til you drop with a loose fitting co-ord pyjama set, clean white vest and platform sandals.

Still not convinced? See how our style bloggers have made the Pyjama look their own.

Have you seen the bodysuit trend that’s been gracing magazine covers in 2016? Everyone from Taylor Swift to Kendall Jenner to Emma Roberts is sporting this form-fitting style. Not just for festival goers and ballet dancers anymore, the bodysuit (think leotard or one-piece swimsuit with a snap, hook, or Velcro closure at the groin) has transformed into an amazing fashion “do.”

Check out all the different styles of bodysuits below as we show you how to wear a bodysuit like the best of them.

Why the Bodysuit Trend is So Popular

For starters, you can’t beat the smooth, chic look of a bodysuit. It hugs your body like a glove. Secondly, everyone and their famous friends have been seen sporting the bodysuit trend: Selena Gomez, Gigi Hadid, Vanessa Hudgens, and all the Kardashians, and that’s saying something.

  • The fit is flattering. They’re the ideal “top” for high-waisted shorts, pants and pencil skirts. There’s no need for constant adjusting and tucking with a body-hugging bodysuit.
  • The fabrics are super soft and comfy. Perfect for lounging around in the heat of summer, just slip on a denim skirt, grab your sunnies and sandals and you’re ready to go!
  • And they’re just so sexy. Slip on a plunging V-neck bodysuit, short shorts and strappy high heels and work it, Queen.

Types of Bodysuits You’ll Want In Your Wardrobe

The versatility of the bodysuit is unbeatable. Thanks to the bodysuit trend rising in popularity, you can discover how to wear a bodysuit in form-fitting styles that suit your needs in tons of colors, cuts and fabrics.

  • Scoop-neck and plunging necklines are available everywhere, but don’t forget to look for more unique lace-up, cutout and off-the-shoulder styles to stand out.
  • Sleek, backless bodysuits pair well jeans or flowing skirts. Try contrasting skin-on-top to more fabric on the bottom to create balance in your outfit.
  • Buy a long-sleeved turtleneck bodysuit to help summer dresses transition into autumn by pairing the look with tights, tall boots and plush sweaters.
  • For those who dare to bare even more boldly, bodysuits are also available in leather, lace, and mesh. Think Ariana Grande in her black and silver miniskirt number in the “Focus” music video.

Ways to Wear a Bodysuit

With its transition from ballet dancer uniform to a multi-style piece ready to wear at a moment’s notice, the bodysuit trend is here to stay. Whether you’re gearing up for a night out or just want to look your best while grabbing groceries, the bodysuit has you covered.

  • Go bohemian with a gauzy flowing skirt, a pastel bodysuit and flower crown. Don’t forget the fringe purse and sandals.
  • Whether you’re busty or flat-chested, bodysuits expertly hold everything in place for a sleek silhouette. Pair with a smooth t-shirt bra for extra support or a lacy bralette for stylish coverage.
  • Be a boss like Kim K. in a black bodysuit, black pencil skirt and fierce overcoat on your way to the office.
  • Whether you favor skinny jeans or bootcut, the bodysuit trend pairs with denim like a match made in heaven.
  • Pair a bodysuit with a pair of professional trousers and blazer to give traditional menswear a look that is uniquely feminine.

If you’re in the mood for a sleek new style that’s been approved by some of the leading fashion icons in music, movies and pop culture, the bodysuit is it.

Since its red carpet heyday in the 1990’s, the slip dress trend has made an iconic comeback this season. Alexander Wang, Burberry and Paco Rabanne have all featured this classic dress in their latest collections.

However, we know that the slip dress isn’t an easy one to pull off. With its silky figure hugging design, it can be quite daunting trying to wear a dress which quite frankly looks like lingerie. But, have no fear, because we have some fabulous tips so that you can wear this definitive dress with a new found confidence.

Ways To Wear Slip Dresses

There are hundreds of ways to wear a slip dress but these celebrity inspired tips will have you rocking this iconic 90s look with a splash of 21st century pizazz.

  • Discover your inner Kate Moss and team up your slinky number with a warm knitted jumper for those chilly winter days
  • A pair of jeans. It may sound a little laid back but if you don’t feel comfortable wearing a slip dress all by itself, then adding a pair of skinny jeans over the skirt will give you a sophisticated two piece outfit
  • Don’t be afraid to hide that waist, grab a belt, wrap it round the slip dress and show off your features
  • Combine a short slip dress with an oversized shirt or blazer and top it off with a trilby hat to really set yourself apart from the crowd
  • Wear it long. For an evening out on the town, nothing speaks glamour more than a floor length dress with a glitzy clutch

What Shoes To Wear With A Slip Dress

Again, this can be a tricky decision. If you’re opting for a short to midi length slip dress then we’d recommend avoiding strappy heels and going for something slightly more unexpected. Take a look at these alternatives for some inspiration.

  • For comfy, happy feet, a pretty pair of flat pumps will complement your glamourous dress perfectly. Match it with wavy locks and natural make up for a flawless look
  • If you’re after something a little more fashionista, try a pair of ankle boots completed with a denim jacket; you’ll certainly turn heads with this number
  • Bring back the classic slip dress your way with some comfy sneakers
  • H&M made catwalk headlines with their 2016 Winter/Fall collection recently, teaming a silk dress with knee length boots for a bold yet elegant appearance

So though the slip dress may seem like a daring addition to the wardrobe, it really can be worn in many, many ways making it a fashion must have this fall. What is your favourite way to wear a slip dress?
