If you pride yourself on keeping up to date with the latest updates from the weird and wonderful world of fashion or regularly attend catwalk shows, you may already be familiar with which fashion trends are likely to emerge in the coming months. If you are a self-confessed fashion failure or struggle to distinguish between fashion feats and fashion fads, however, it can be impossible to know where to begin. It may, therefore, benefit you to continue reading to familiarise yourself with upcoming fashion trends worth keeping an eye out for.
The return of low-waisted trousers
If you welcomed the introduction of high-waisted trousers with open arms, you may not necessarily be thrilled about the latest fashion trend set to revolutionize the fashion world. It is somewhat hard to believe, but low-waisted trousers dominated this year’s catwalks and, as a result, revived the 1990s and 2000s trend that many fashion-forward consumers had happily bid farewell to a number of years ago. If you refuse to entertain this trend, it may be worth taking it slow by pairing a pair of low-waisted trousers with a knitted jumper or large jacket until you feel brave enough to opt for a crop top and fully embrace the trend in its entire nostalgic glory.
The re-emergence of luxury sneakers
If you value comfortability over aesthetics, you, and your feet, may be pleased to know that luxury sneakers are re-emerging into the fashion conscious to provide a sensible solution to not only looking great but also feeling great on the go. It comes as a growing number of consumers adopt the effortlessly fashionable look by ensuring they have considered their fashion choices from head to toe. If you are interested in tapping into this upcoming trend, there are a wide range of Balenciaga, Gucci, Y-3, Prada, Christian Louboutin, and Golden Goose sneakers to choose from, with the new Golden Goose sneakers proving particularly popular on fashion-forward feet in recent months.
The modernization of the mini skirt
If you were alive in the 1960s, you may remember how the mini skirt took the fashion world by storm when it entered into the mainstream and revolutionized the relatively safe realm of women’s fashion forevermore. It was the brainchild of fashion designer Mary Quant and was popularised by Twiggy, Jane Fonda, and Jean Shrimpton, just to name a few. If you have harbored resentment at having missed out on the decade on the mini skirt, you will be happy to know that it is set to return with a modern twist this year. In order to fully embrace the trend, opt for attention-grabbing colors, bold patterns, and unique fabrics because whilst the skirt may be small, its impact can really pack a punch.
The explosion of neon colors
If your wardrobe includes beige, beige, and even more beige, you may want to stop reading now because neon colors are set to make an impact when they explode onto the fashion scene in the coming months. This particularly daring trend was omnipresent during this year’s catwalks and has already been mimicked by a number of affordable brands, with fashion-conscious consumers only all too happy to oblige and inject a splash of color into their winter wardrobes. If you like to fully embrace a trend, you may also be pleased to know that it is not only being worn in the form of accessories but as an all-encompassing head-to-toe look with trench coats, boots, dresses, and even suits commonly worn as statement pieces or in conjunction with one another if you dare to dazzle.
The rise of feminine colors and shapes
In recent years, androgyny has dominated the fashion scene with leather jackets, overcoats, platform boots, and cut-outs only far too common in today’s viral Instagram posts and paparazzi pictures. It has, therefore, been a while since feminine colors and shapes have had their moment in the spotlight. If you have always adored pinks, frills, lace, and petticoats, however, it is your time to shine as femininity continues its reign on the fashion industry and infiltrates a growing number of catwalks across the globe with the likes of Rihanna, Gal Gadot, and Nina Dobrev early advocates of the trend that is, admittedly, not for everyone.
If you enjoy keeping up to date with upcoming fashion trends, there are several that are worth keeping an eye out for as they enter the fashion landscape in the coming months. This includes the return of low-waisted trousers, the re-emergence of luxury trainers, the modernization of the mini skirt, the explosion of neon colors, and the rise of feminine colors and shapes. In doing so, you can predict which trends are most likely to arrive months in advance and ensure you are ahead of the pack when it comes to your future fashion choices.
