If fashion week tells us anything, it’s that we can’t always afford (or feel like we can pull off) high-end trends. That being said, just because you don’t purchase designer name brands doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate some of those hot styles, colors, and trends into your wardrobe. Here are some mainstream apparel trends that will have you looking runway-ready at a fraction of the cost.
Boho Headscarves (shop here)
Whether you prefer a 1950s-style loose-knot headscarf or a 1970s hippie-style headscarf, it doesn’t really matter. The latest runways saw a healthy combination of both, which leaves you with plenty of opportunities to play with your personal style. As long as you have fun with how you choose to wear a headscarf, you’re in vogue!
Yellow Bags (shop here)
Oversized purses, long slings, small clutches, or even the smallest phone wallets…If you’re in the market for a new purse, yellow is the new black. This bright, sunny hue looks great alongside any ensemble, whether adding a much-needed pop of color to an all-black outfit or a complementary burst of color to your boho-chic look.
Pastel Apparel (shop here)
Continuing on the topic of color, when selecting some new pieces for your summer wardrobe, make sure you’re taking a look at those pretty pastels. Purples, blues, yellows, pinks, and even greens are really popping this season, regardless of how (or where) you wear them.
Another benefit of wearing pastels: you can never have too much (or too little) color. So, pair your favorite jeans with a pastel purple top, or go for a complete pastel blue ensemble – the choice is yours!
Knee-High Boots (Shop here)
Knee-high boots have been in style for some time now, but when thinking about the pastel trend, it makes sense to invest in a pair of white knee-highs. The go-go look is back, and it’s up to you how dramatic you choose to style it. Whichever direction you go, these shoes are the “it” accessories of the season.
Oversized Jackets (shop here)
Last but not least, the “boyfriend look” is back in full swing as androgynous clothing graces the runway. And now, oversized apparel has made its way to outerwear! If you’re not a fan of shoulder pads, simply opt for an oversized coat, and that’s all you need to nail this fashion trend.
Who wouldn’t love to walk the runway once in their life? You’ll undoubtedly feel like you could when you incorporate some of these mainstream apparel trends into your everyday look. Ultimately, fashion isn’t about the price tag; it’s about what you wear and how you wear it.
