Trend Report 2018: Ciera Edition

Hi there,

Happy New Year! It feels like we haven’t chatted since last year. 😉 I swear that may be my only bad joke for the day.. But really, I hope everyone had a fun and safe new year! Now that we are here in 2018, I thought it would be best to highlight this upcoming year with all of the trends you should most definitely try. 2018 is the year for you to branch out, try something new, wear something new, and command attention.

I am sure you have probably all set some resolutions and heard countless people tell you theirs, so I won’t bore you with mine.. but just know, 2018 is about to get serious, seriously good. So I hope you will all stick around and see what I have in store for this year.

Now I know I am not an award-winning fashion magazine, celebrity stylist, or trend reporter, but today I am going to do my very best to round up the best trends and do’s of  2018. I will even give ya a few options to do some shopping and get a head start on your new wardrobe. Here we go, people.

Trend 1: Yellow

For some, this one may be hard to get into.. but trust me, a yellow can boost any tan by 4 shades and even add an extra glow to that neutral outfit you always seem to gravitate towards. Yellow is the new pink this year (I am not kidding), so replace some of that salmon and blush and invite in canary and sunshine.

Trend 2: Mules

They are the loafers you swore you would never wear, but I promise that you need a pair (or two) in your life. They are so comfy and extra trendy so they can be paired with the simplest of outfits.

Trend 3: Long layers

Pair a trench coat with a t-shirt and jeans and you instantly have a trendy outfit. Try pairing long layers with short hems to create dimension and lengthen your legs.

Trend 4: Lavender

I love a good lavender bag or girly top. It is the perfect color to transition from spring to summer and back to fall by pairing it with whites and light denim for spring, monochromatic looks for summer, and dark denim and khaki in the fall.

Trend 5: Fringe

Fringe can make any outfit into an edgy, fun new look. Fringe can be paired with patterns, neutrals, and even other textures.

Trend 6: Being kind to others

2017 was a rough year for everyone, and all of us could use more kindness. Be polite, say thank you, tell a stranger you love their shoes, buy someone’s coffee, open doors for others, and just try to smile more. A little bit of kindness can change your own as well as others outlook on life. IMG_9803.jpg

Have a great week, and a fabulous year!
