Warning: Trending 2015

A new year always brings about new excitement. There’s a sense of passion about what the upcoming year holds. So what can we expect to see in the upcoming 2015 year? With New York Fashion Week coming up next month, we are bound to see some of the biggest designers showcase the colors and styles of what will be trending.

You can expect to see a lot of black and white. A staple and classy route for clothing, black and white patterns or solids is an essential piece in your wardrobe. B&W never goes out of style and will always be trending. If you aren’t the biggest fan of black and white alone together, you can always try a statement piece that incorporates a pop of color.

I have also noticed that menswear has started to sneak in to womenswear. I have come across several popular stores that are currently selling menswear style loafers for women. Tuxedo style blazers are also trending. I’m not sure the loafers are a trend that I could personally jump on, but I’m sure that accessorized right, they would be on point! (Check out the link below to see a pair of men’s inspired loafers from Forever 21).

I love to wear booties. They can pull together any outfit. They can be worn super dressy or casual as well. My favorite way to wear booties is with a pair of skinny jeans with a basic tee and draped cardigan. I think it really dresses up the casualness of a basic tee and jeans combo. You can also take the booties/tee/skinnies and pair them with a big comfy coat, perfect for going out on the town in the dead of winter.




Cosmopolitan magazine came out with a list back in October 2014 of The 15 Biggest Trends of Spring 2015. Check out the link and see if you agree:

On the opposite end, Cosmopolitan also came out with a list of 21 Beauty Trends That Need To Die In 2015. Do you agree with any of these, or do you think we will still be seeing any of these in the near future?

I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us!
