While not two new trends on their own, I have been loving dressing up a cute graphic tee with a blazer lately so I had to do a huge round up this week for our Tuesday Trends series. I know it can be hard to find affordable graphic tees these days which is infuriating because it’s a dang t shirt so I made sure to include plenty of reasonably priced options in the below round up. Also if you want to check out CottonOn, ASOS, or Nasty Gal they have some of my favorite budget friendly graphic tees.
When it comes to blazers, I’ve always stuck to purchasing sophisticated, simple styles but as of more recently I’ve branched out to bigger statement pieces. I’ve been surprised to find just how many ways they can be styled including over a graphic tee with sneakers which is my personal favorite way. Blazers are certainly no longer just for the office and i’m loving it! Try out the trend by checking out the below options and if you are feeling adventurous enough, pair them together!
Snakeskin is the new leopard this season and it’s everywhere from clothes to shoes to accessories! I started small with pops of snake print like these cute loafers and trimmed felt hat and am now the proud owner of half a closet full of snake print clothes! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite snakeskin items at all price points below if you want to try out the trend with me!
Two piece sets are trending BIG time. It’s definitely one of those trends that I am hesitant to drop a lot of money on because 1) they are seasonal and 2) most of them don’t cover much surface area so what material are you paying all of those monies for?! My favorite budget friendly places to shop this trend are Forever 21 and Red Dress Boutique which has pretty decent quality clothing that will last a few wears. If you are looking for a one time wear outfit (ex: bach party), check out Shein but make sure to read reviews for quality and sizing. And if you are looking for a splurge worthy two piece set that will last a long time, check out Revolve, specifically Free People and SuperDownbrands.
Matching sets are SO fun for vacation and warmer weather. I’ve also linked a bunch of white sets that I think would be cute for bridal events and bachelorette parties. If you do try out the trend, tag me or send me a pic so that I can see!
I’m back with another Tuesday Trends post and this week is dedicated to all of the utility and military trends that have popped up this season. Utility jackets, rompers, jumpsuits and blouses are hitting retailer sites with a vengeance. All things military, cargo and camo are also here to stay for awhile longer. If you’ve been wanting to try these trends, see below for a round up of my favorite retailer picks.
It’s been a hot minute since I did a Tuesday Trends post but your girl is bringing them back because they are some of my favs! Is it weird that making these collages is almost therapeutic to me?! I bet most bloggers would tell you i’m crazy for saying that because they take hours!
While none of these are “new” trends by any means, they are certainly in full force this season! I went from being a camo hater to lover in 0.2 seconds. It’s funny how we see trends pop up and tell ourselves “you’ll never catch me in that” and then end up eating our words later on. I used to think camo was just for rednecks and hunting season but somehow the fashion industry has turned it into arguably this season’s hottest print. Camo silk scarves have become a thing y’all and there ain’t nothing redneck about that. I slowly started my camo obsession with this pair of Levi’s (pictured below) and it’s only gone crazy from there.
Now when it comes to the plaid epidemic, I actually had no idea how popular glen plaid (or that that was the name of it for that matter) was until fashion week when every single blogger showed up in a plaid blazer! And here I was thinking I was rocking a very unique blazer.. WRONG! While glen plaid blazers are all the rage right now, you will find everything from sock booties to pant suits. My favorite blazer that I have found is this one from Express (pictured below). If you would like a less expensive option, this one from Target is very similar!
And arguably my favorite trend this season because it’s usually so hard to find is leopard! I’ve always been a fan of leopard accessories, like my leopard pumps for the office and leopard scarf to wear with tunics and over the knee boots, but I love that you can now find leopard everything. This leopard shirt has been a top seller for the blog (runs true to size). I’ve dressed it down for the weekend and up for the office. Leopard is definitely a print that is timeless and classy which makes it perfect for all occasions, including the office.
If you want to try out any of these trends I’ve round up a ton at all different price points and several are on sale right now. Pink Lily Boutique has a lot of camo and leopard cuteness right now (some linked below) and I have a 15% discount code for you ladies – SHELBI15! Another place worth checking out is Express because they have a TON of camo and are currently having a sale!
