With another new year, comes new trends that we are all a little hesitant to try! Sometimes these new trends can be a bit scary at first, but I promise you this year some of the trends aren’t as risky as what we have seen in the past! Here are 3 trends for this upcoming year that EVERYONE should try!

1. Statement Sleeves:

Adding just a slight pop of color, animal print or a fun design to your sleeves this year will be a hot trend. When you love leopard or snake skin print but don’t want to go all out with your top,  having a fun sleeve but solid body in your shirt will help to bring out your unique style without going over the top. Here are a few of my favorite tops in store right now that will help you get on board with this trend!

Charlotte Printed Sleeves Top – $52

Amber Print Top – $48.50

Aria Reptile Print Top – $49.50

 

2. Denim Hems

Raw Hem: A raw hem is basically where it looks like someone just took a scissors to the bottom of your jeans and that is your hem! This keeps the look semi-clean without too much fraying at the bottom. It also adds a bit of an edge to your look!


Sarah Ankle Skinny – Atlanta: $64

Release Hem: This look is going to be HUGE this year! A release hem is a jean that looks as though it’s been hemmed and then unhemmed and ironed. Here is an up close picture of the release hem in our Carly denim so you can see the difference between the raw and release hem.



Carly Release Hem Skinnies: $64

 

Frayed Hem: A frayed hem is where the hem is just that, frayed! Below is the link of my favorite distressed denim in store right now! I love the distressed look with the frayed hem for a more casual pair of black denim!

Sammy Distressed Denim: $64

Clean Hem: You can never go wrong with a clean hem on your denim. It’s always work appropriate, you can dress it up or down, and is timeless!


Sarah Skinny Jeans: $64

3. Mix & Matching Patterns

Mixing Stars with Stripes, Camo with Leopard, and Polka Dots with Stripes is not only acceptable this year, but recommended 😉 Have some fun with your wardrobe this year by mix and matching some of your favorite prints! Here is one example that you can try:

 

Jenna Cardigan: $49.50

Star Print Tee: $34

Leopard Shoes: $31
