Trending Forever

As we all know, most trends come and go almost as quickly as an average runway show lasts. To ensure that your closet isn’t full of unwearable items in a few months’ time, here are some predictions about the current trends that have the most staying power and which ones equal more bang for your buck!

Trending-BlackandWhite

Graphic Black And White

You’ve got to love a trend that works for any occasion and looks great on everyone. A graphic black and white pattern is the perfect way to make a subtle statement. Plus, you’ll be able to pair it with most of your wardrobe for seasons to come.

​On Emma Stone:

Saint Laurent Spencer Leather Lapel Jacket($2,793) in Black; Saint Laurent Signature Lavalliere Shirt ($1,290) available in Black; Rag & Bone Skinny Jeans ($176) in Coronado.

Trending-BomberJackets

Bomber Jackets

Want to add instant cool factor to your outfit? Go for a bomber jacket. Want a jacket that will go from day to night seamlessly? Try a bomber jacket. Shopping for a jacket with endless pattern and color options? You get the point.

On Jessica Alba: 

​Aqua Looking Glass Silk Bomber Jacket ($198) in Blue Ice/Pink/Black; NIC+ZOE Easy Street Pants ($118) in Black Onyx.

Trending-BucketBags

Bucket Bags

What’s better than a deceptively roomy bag that can hold our entire life in it? Nada. That’s why you’ll have to claw this on-trend bag style out of our hands!

On Emma Roberts:

​Loeffler Randall Industry Bag ($295) in Black; Charlotte Olympia Kitty Embroidered Velver Slippers ($495) in Black.

Trending-Sneakers

Sneakers

Our feet have never been so happy. Even heel-loving girls who never thought their arches would touch the ground have embraced sneakers in every shape and color. Trends of this scale (and comfort) aren’t usually quick to fade.

On Hilary Rhoda:

​Levi’s Authentic Trucker Jacket ($58) available in Rosebud Blue; Helmut Lang Stretch Leather Pants ($920) in Black; Soludos Raffia Lace Up Shoes ($65) in Natural Black.

Trending-Pink

Pink

Pink will make your skin glow, and make you smile. Plus, it pairs well with so many hues on the color wheel, making it extra versatile.

On Emma Watson: 

Narciso Rodriguez S/S 14 shirt and skirt; Stuart Weitzman Nudist Ankle-Strap Sandals ($395) in Fawn

Trending-PleatedSkirts

Pleated Skirts

The hottest skirt trend this season is equal parts flattering and adorable. Depending on the length, pattern, and material, it can go from ultra-sweet to ultra-fun.

On Miranda Kerr:

Acne Tag Vintage Denim Jacket ($290) in Vintage Blue; Valentino Rouge Absolute Patent Scallop Pumps ($895) in Scarlet; Chanel bag;.

Trending-BoyfriendJeans

Boyfriend Jeans

We’re pretty sure that when this trend first emerged, our boyfriends were hoping it would fade. But boyfriend jeans are now a denim staple, and one of our favorite styles.

On Poppy Delevingne:

​sass & bide The Rock Steady Jeans ($270) in Indigo; Jimmy Choo Candy Clutch Bag ($995) available in Black Glitter with Gold Stars; Jimmy Choo shoes.

Trending-Embellished

Embellishment

Embellishment has the ability to make an otherwise ordinary item special. Don’t be surprised if this elegant trend is around for seasons to come.

On Kate Bosworth:

Giambattista Valli S/S 14 Couture dress.

Trending-Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits

In case you haven’t caught onto the jumpsuit obsession yet, it’s real, and Jordana Brewster nails the look in gorgeous gray. How could a trend this effortless and cool go away anytime soon?

On Jordana Brewster

​vintage Halston jumpsuit.

You’ll wear these trends Forever!

XOXO

Lovable Outfit Ideas

You’re smitten with a holiday that is completely dedicated to love, and I think your Valentine’s Day outfit should be completely lovable too. Here are four romantic looks that are guaranteed to create the perfect love story.

Luxe Effect

Adding a bit of rich texture can immediately make your outfit feel luxe. A velvet pant, skirt, cape, or top pairs easily with your basics, such as jeans, tees, and trousers.

lovableideas-Luxe-VanessaJackman

Image courtesy of  Vanessa Jackman

Try a rich palette of dark red, navy, black, or softer hues like cream or peach.

lovableideas-Luxe

Rag & Bone Roseburg velvet blazer $550

A Pop Of Red

The hue is striking paired with all-black, and also totally unexpected teamed with a softer palette of creams and faded florals.

lovableideas-red-blondesalad

The Blonde Salad

splash of red can be just the right amount of color for an otherwise softer palette. A punchy red lipstick, a sharp red heel, or a bold red clutch feels festive, but not overwhelming.

lovableideas-touchofred

Charlotte Olympia Pandora Perspex clutch $975

The LBD

A Valentine’s Day dinner date is the perfect time to bring out your sexy little black dress.

lovableideas-LBD-WeWoreWhat

We Wore What

Try to balance your look so that it’s equal parts demure (a fuller skirt or rounded collar) and daring (a short hem or nipped-in waist).

lovableideas-LBD - Cropped

Diane Von Furstenberg Angelica ruched mini dress $225

Whimsical

Prints are very romantic!

lovableideas-whimsical-CollageVintage

To add a touch of whimsy, throw on a printed heel! Try a floral, polka dot, or stripe.

lovableideas-whimsical

Givenchy Floral print leather pumps $620

How do you make your outfit Lovable?

XOXO
