Now Trending: Belts!

Doesn’t it seem like belts are on a loop? One day they’re fashion news, the next they’re gone – until they circle back. We’re not talking the simple, fit through five loops, hold your pants up belt. We’re talking trend-right over a blouse, over the loops addition to your ensemble. We want great belt options that are here to stay, and our Accessories Team is giving us just that!

Check out some of our favorite belts below. And stick around, because each month we’ll bring you something new and different from the belt-o-sphere: tassels, chains, studs and beyond.

Say Hello to the LRD

You know how obsessed we are with the Little Black Dress, but ladies, this season there’s competition in our closet. Drum roll please… The LRD (Little Red Dress)! With a big pop of color, the LRD takes fierce to a whole new level. We’re not saying get rid of your LBDs – we’d never say that – but definitely add an LRD to your collection. Red looks good on you, so rock it!

Trending: Jeans

We know what you’re thinking:  Jeans have been around for forever and they’re trending now?

Well, ladies, the fact is, blue jeans alone are no longer merely a casual Friday and outside-of-work commodity.

What’s really trending now: the woman who isn’t afraid to ditch the white tee and amp up denim with the latest date-night tops and sexiest leather shoulder bags. True story—jeans come in different washes, cuts and styles for a reason!

Our thoughts? It’s time to take the “blue” out of “denim blues” and rock those duds the right way—sleek, modern and sexy.

And since we think jeans are perfect for just about any day of the week, here’s the 411 on our favorite boot-cuts and skinnies:

Trending: Stackable Bangles

When it comes to the latest accessories trend, we have this to say: the more the merrier! Summer’s all about stackable bangles. You can’t go wrong with an arm party of shiny bracelets—they pair great with pretty much any ensemble and are fun to wear.

For an extra touch of fab, try mixing simple gold bangles with jeweled or textured ones. Go wild and stack them from wrist to your elbow! (Well, maybe not that high.)

Exposed: Zips and Pleather, Oh My

There’s a new look in town, one that’s making headlines—perhaps you’ve heard of the “exposed” trend? It’s all about the unexpected, like zippers and pleather used to spice up solids and add interest to prints, taking your pre-fall wardrobe to the next level.

We love how a simple faux-leather detail along the collar of a basic woven top, or a little lace on a sheer tank, turns staples into a fierce cocktail party looks.

And why stop there? This hot trend is burning up “classic” pieces like dresses and skirts, leggings and jackets—even accessories! Get ready to hone the edge of your personal wardrobe – check out our fave zipper and pleather trends, below.
