Bomber Jackets Out, Puffer Jackets In
Last year was basically bomberpalooza, and we’re sad to see it wind down. But adding puffer jackets to our closet essentials cheers us up quite a bit! Like bombers, puffers come in a variety of cuts and styles, making them just as versatile. We particularly like pieces that evoke an ’80s vibe like this chevron puffer jacket from Gap.
Slip Dresses Out, Robe Dresses In
Slip dresses were the pinnacle of last year’s ’90s comeback. However, a more sophisticated and mature silhouette takes its place on our wardrobe-essentials list. Fashionistas are calling this long-sleeve wrap dress style “the robe.” We love fashion staples you can easily transition from day to night, and this is a perfect example.
Chokers Out, Tassel Earrings In
Another ’90s throwback is exiting stage left to make way for something with a little more dazzle. Beaded tassel earrings, like this pair from J.Crew, are becoming an absolute must-have. You may not think of them as fashion basics, but they pair perfectly with both casual and evening looks, giving them plenty of mileage.
Cropped Skinnies Out, Cropped Flares In
Another youthful look is making way for something a bit more grown up. Cuffed or cropped skinny jeans are officially old news. Instead, opt for a pair of basic or bold cropped flares to give your work wardrobe a little kick.
Lace-Up Shoes Out, Kitten Heels In
For those of you who are not crazy about sky-high stilettos, this will be music to your ears. Your statement-making yet complicated lace-up shoes should be replaced with sensible yet timeless kitten heels, like this elegant pair by Eloquii.
Bell Sleeves Out, Ruffles In
We’re preparing to say goodbye to one of our favorite ’70s-inspired trends: the bell sleeve. What could possibly add an equal amount of drama to your everyday look? Ruffles! We’re seeing this romantic element in play with evening pieces and basics like this ruffled top available at Nordstrom.
