IN: RETRO BLOWOUTS OUT: MESSY WAVES
While the whole messy bedhead look certainly had it’s run, right now it’s all about polished, bouncy blowouts. Though the look obviously takes more time (ugh), it has a nice chic appeal that’ll have you feeling Kate Middleton perfect.
IN: BOHEMIAN STYLE OUT: MIXED STONES
From feathered earrings to long, bohemian style jewels, a bold gypsy look is all the rage. If you consider your style to be more minimalist, try easing into the trend with more subtle interpretations such as these delicate earrings. Add an exotic appeal to your daily look and retire those chunky stones.
IN: BOXY SHOPPERS OUT: BAGS WITH FUR
Big boxy shopper bags have been spotted all over the runways this season. These sleek’n’chic styles are so modern, we’re sure you’ll get away with sporting them for years to come. What we’re over? Bags with fur trim. So 2011.
IN: STACKED HEELS OUT: THIN STILHETTOS
The days of Carrie Bradshaw strutting around town in her sky high stilettos feels like ages ago. Now it’s all about chunky, thick heels. While easier to walk in, they can appear bulky depending on your frame. Look for a pair with edge yet still uber-feminine. We love these by Calvin Klein.
IN: OVER-SIZED SUNGLASSES OUT: ROUND SHADES
We’re kind of happy that round sunglasses are making their way out. We think only a few trendy starlets pulled off this hip ‘60s look anyway (Sienna Miller comes to mind). What’s big this minute? Huge, almost futuristic styles. Not for the demure lady, these look-at-me shades are reserved for the adventurous type.
