Trends come and go in the fast-paced world of womens fashion. It’s a constantly evolving cycle. We love being surprised by which styles stick around. Some divide and some climb to classic status right away, experiencing waves of popularity every couple of years.
Read on for three womens fashion trends street stylers are loving right now.
Animal print trends tend to be divisive, so when faux snakeskin bodysuits and handbags started popping up on fashion week attendees last year, we weren’t convinced the print would stick. As time went on, it was clear that this print was only getting bigger.
Whether you’re sporting small snakeskin details or stomping around in killer statement boots à la Emily Ratajkowski, it’s clear the snakeskin trend is feeling the love. If you’re a block colour gal looking to get into the print game, now is the time.
It seems Issey Miyake’s signature pleats are going to get even bigger this year. Textured but lightweight, micro pleats are perfect for layering and for showing off silhouette without the discomfort of a tight fit. Not to worry if your budget is more micro than Miyake right now – you’ll find micro pleated garms at vintage shops and loads of online stores.
So popular, micro pleats will continue to be seen more and more in womens fashion, especially on the street style scene.
Adored by big-time style stars and the everyday fashion lovers alike, boxy blazers are the new outerwear staple. Blazers have been associated with the 9-5 corporate grind for a long time, so it’s not surprising that it’s taken a little while for them to gain traction with younger generations.
Now, we’re seeing them everywhere. Boxier fits allow for so many styling possibilities, so the trend never really feels stale. That’s one reason why everyone’s loving this shape in womens fashion right now.
