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.

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

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.

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?

You’ll wear these trends Forever!

Couture Beauty Tips

The couture runways are where designers’ wildest ideas and most imaginative visions come to life. But here are some beauty inspirations you can actually wear in real life. From the red lip stain and dewy skin at Christian Dior to the stick-straight locks and smoky eye at Versace, these are the looks you’ll want to re-create.

couture-beauty-dior

Christian Dior

When wearing a bold lip color, like the matte cherry red seen at Christian Dior, it is important to downplay your other features with soft eye makeup and light brows.
couture-beauty-tony-ward

Tony Ward

Adding white shimmer (or gold for those with darker complexions) to the inner corners of the eyelid will make your eyes seem bigger, brighter, and more awake.
couture-beauty-mabille

Alexis Mabille

Minus the butterflies of course (or maybe just one), white eyeshadow and a bold brow is the perfect look for a spring evening.
couture-beauty-valli

Giambattista Valli

Giambattista Valli is bringing the Amy Winehouse cat eyeliner back, highlighted by a completely fresh face.
couture-beauty-versace

Atelier Versace

A hair straightener, smoky eye shadow, and lip gloss is all that’s on the Versace girl’s beauty check list.

Your so Couture!

XOXO
