Cropped Sweaters and Cardigans
Comfortable but flattering knitwear is sure to be a popular look this year. It can be worn with layers in the winter, or all on it’s own in the warmer months. You can find tons of different colors and styles as well, from cable knit buttoned cardigans to fitted turtlenecks. We love these from Lisa Says Gah and UNIF.
Polymer Clay Earrings
Fun earrings have been a popular trend for a while now, but the craftsmanship and impeccable look of handmade clay earrings is impossible to beat. There are tons of small business out there that offer anything you can think of into an adorable pair of earrings! I love the botanical looks from Anna and Bull, which look like a work of art for your ears. Blush Daisy has a world of trendy designs in bright colors, but with these labor-intensive earrings selling out in only minutes every time they’re released, getting a hold of a pair is a feat in its own right!
With most of us still staying home more often due to COVID, sweatshirts and sweatpants have become a staple to many. Brands like New Girl Order and Boys Lie have been gaining popularity for their blend of streetwear graphics and slogans with comfort. Pieces that make a statement while still being comfortable and easy to wear are never a bad thing!
Trench coats have been a fashion staple for decades, but lately the statement coat has been more popular than ever. A fun, bright coat is just the thing to bring you a bit of joy and a fun pop of color to your look, even if the rest of your outfit is covered. It’s also always great to stand out against the sea of black and gray coats I’m used to seeing during winters in New York City. These coats are from our own Lolita Royalty shop!
This menswear look is sure to make its return in the coming year! I love this funky sweater vest from UNIF, but this is also a great item to buy secondhand. Thrift stores and vintage shops are likely to be stocked with these, and don’t be afraid to pick one up from the men’s section, either! It’s a great way to get a baggier fit and more options when it comes to colors and styles. These also go great over button-ups and are a great layering piece!
