The trend cycle used to last six months to a year but now looks go in and out of style in weeks. While the temptation to buy into each passing trend is very real, we suggest putting your hard-earned money towards timeless basics and styling them out with a selection of on-trend pieces and accessories. These subtle details and “microtrends” can breathe new life into your wardrobe for a fraction of the price.
For example, picking up a chocolate brown slip skirt or a sweater vest for the winter season will add a trendy element to your existing outfits into 2021. In addition to ’70s-inspired browns and layered sweaters, read up on the easy, chic ways to style an outfit in the new year below.
’70s-inspired brown was on our list of the top fall 2020 trends, and if Instagram is any indication, our prediction was accurate. Adding a touch of chocolate brown to your outfit—whether in the form of a slip skirt, jacket, or top—will make your ensemble feel infinitely more fashion-forward.
All Check Everything
Check print has exploded among the fashion set in the last few months, and we think this look will stick around well into 2021. Add a touch of this kitschy print to your outfits for a chic yet punchy look; if you’re not ready to go full-on checkered pants, test the waters with a turtleneck, scarf, or slip-on Vans sneakers.
