Hello all, Kayla here! As you know, we absolutely LOVE fashion! Our worlds revolve around style and putting together beautiful outfits. Not only do we help style our clients and customers on a daily basis, but Ashley and I are constantly bouncing ideas off one another and asking each other which trends and styles we're loving right now. We talk so much about clothing and fashion, it inspired me to share what we're loving right now with all of you. So sit down, grab a coffee and read away...
1. High-Waisted Jeans
If you've never tried a pair of high-waisted jeans on, you're certainly missing out. Not only are they SUPER adorable, but they've been one of the hottest trends over the last couple of years, and if you ask me, it's for good reason. Throw on a cute crop sweater, some loafers and you have yourself one impressive outfit! Over the last year, I've noticed a lot of people jumping on the high-waisted bandwagon, but I've also come across a few people saying, the jeans add more frump than flatter. Wrong. If you put in some work and find a pair that fits you perfectly, they will be your new go-to, I promise. To all the naysayers, do yourself a favour; every time you see a pair while you're out shopping, try them on. You're bound to find a pair that you can't live without. Trust me, this trend isn't going anywhere and there's a reason why, they're incredibly cute and stylish.
I must admit, it took me a while to come around on this trend, but recently I've totally fallen in love. I used to wear chokers as a kid, so when the trend came back this year, I was a tad hesitant. Not anymore though, I'm so into it. Chokers not only complete an outfit, but they are totally flirty and sexy. It adds that pop you need, without overdoing it. Want to really turn some heads? For your next soirée, pass on the statement necklace and wear an embellished choker with pearl detailing, just like the picture above. You'll have people swooning over the edgy number.3. Pinstripe
Take a page out of the the New York Yankees' handbook and embrace the pinstripe trend. Pinstripes are classic, sharp and oh-so-stylish! Want a showstopping get-up? Pair pinstripe pants with a white tee, leather jacket and white sneakers and be on your way. You'll have an extra boost of confidence, a pep in your step and the compliments will be rolling in all day.
4. Bell Sleeves
Looking to add some romance to your wardrobe? Look no further than a blouse with oversized bell sleeves. There's something that is SO beautiful and dramatic about bell sleeves, just makes everyday life a bit more fun. I'm obsessed with the champagne blouse (last picture above), such a great transition piece from work to cocktail hour.
If you can believe it, velvet is one of the biggest trends in the world right now. From shoes to dresses, celebrities and the top fashion bloggers out there, can't get enough. Afraid to try it, not into it? Well, maybe you haven't given the popular textile it's due. Start small and purchase a crop top, pencil skirt or even an inexpensive pair of flats. Incorporating the trend into your wardrobe slowly might alter how you feel towards the fad and might keep your chequing account balance right where it should be. Take it from me, velvet can really add to an outfit, especially if you're headed out for a night on the town. I bought a navy blue skirt last Winter and I absolutely love it. I've worn it with everything from a bodysuit to a beautiful chunky sweater. Cooler days are not far off, so start searching now, you never know what you can discover when you're on the prowl ;)
