Summer is right around the corner. To help you look your best, here’s the fashion forecast for what’s hot this season. The question is: Which style speaks to you?

STYLE 1: BOHO

Made for free spirits and loose-clothing lovers, boho is the most laid-back look. To embrace this easy vibe, add jumpsuits or rompers to your wardrobe. Not only are they the perfect one-and-done outfit, they’re comfortable enough to wear all day long.

The most popular boho summer jumpers this season feature earthy patterns like giant flowers or palm leaves.

For footwear, sandals are the staple not only of the summer, but also of the boho look. Whether you’re a fan of espadrilles, platforms or other styles, these strappy shoes fit the bill.

Last of all, don’t forget to add accessories to your look. Bags or purses with woven textures and jewelry that look earthy (think natural stones and wood) will tie your outfit together and make you look like a boho goddess.

STYLE 2: GIRLY

The best way to beat the heat? In this soft, sweet style. Opt for flowy, unstructured dresses with playful details. Or a classic ruffled, off-the-shoulder frock that’s cool and casual enough for any outing.

To add extra interest to your outfit, slip on some shoes with knot details or ruffle cutouts.

Then finish off this flirty, feminine look with natural earrings like beaded hoops or tassels to make your summer outfit really shine.

STYLE 3: URBAN

If street chic is your style, then try urban wear this summer. With its edgy-meets-feminine feeling, urban is one of our favorite looks. One way to rock this style is mixing feminine tops with utility shorts, but fitted pencil skirts with silky tops are also a fun choice.

Urban footwear, made to get you from point A to point B comfortably, can consist of sleek city sneakers, stylish wedges or funky slip-ons. Whatever your choice, you’ll be sure to stand out in style.

To jazz up your casual look even more, try some beaded hair clips or simple jewelry and throw a compact bag over your shoulder. You’ll be surprised at how little accents go a long way.

5 Ways to Style This Winter’s Top Trends

November 4, 2017

Metallics. Plaid. Velvet. Three top trends you can dress up or down this season. Here’s how:

Versatile Velvet

top trends

A velvet dress adds glamour to any event. You can also dress it down with a backpack, ball cap, and metallic boots for a pop of glam. Feeling chilly? Add a denim jacket you can tie around your waist if you get too warm. Swap out the metallic boots for metallic sneakers to create an athleisure look that works all year-round.

Shop the look: velvet dress, denim jacket, metallic boots, backpack, ball cap

Cozy to Classy

top trends

Take binge-watching to a whole new level. For casual hangouts or cozy cuddling, sport velvet joggers and a mock-neck long-sleeve shirt or fitted sweater. Then easily transition to a night on the town by dressing it up with a statement heel and clutch.

Shop the look: velvet joggers, mock-neck long-sleeve shirt, statement heel, clutch

Pop of Plaid

top trends

You can’t go wrong with a chic plaid scarf. Pair it with neutral jeans, a coat, shoes, and a classic tote. This one powerful piece instantly adds winter style to any outfit.

Shop the look: plaid scarf, jeans, coat, shoes

Plaid and Proud

top trends

From green to red to neutral and from thick to thin to checked, plaid comes in many shapes, sizes, and colors—making this traditional pattern an eclectic wardrobe option. Wear it front and center in a dress you can amp up with a vest or jacket, velvet booties or sneakers, and a felt hat.

Shop the look: dress, jacket, sneakers, felt hat

Modern Metallic

top trends

Put an urban twist on the classic metallic holiday skirt by wearing it with a graphic tee and velvet sneakers. Then bring in the heat with a moto jacket for chilly winter days, and lose it when winter thaws into spring.
