6. Bows As Accessories and More Than Accessories!

Lately, in various collections, giant bows have stolen the limelight. They allow women to add a touch of quirkiness to an otherwise simple look. Oversized and opulent bows were a standout feature in many shows. They are huge right now and are predicted to rule this year. However, it isn’t just reserved for when you are trying to make an effort. If you wish to create a soft and romantic look, then you can accessorize, lightly deck up, or tie together your attire with the smaller versions of bows. If you think differently, you can also make a bow out of a long strap in a dress. For example, while tying the neck straps of a halter-neck dress. In this way, you won’t have to use it as an accessory always.

7. It’s Time to Be Friends with The Volume and Lengths

Say adieu to the cropped and skinny styles as this year is all about experimenting with shape, length, and volume. You will find exaggerated lengths on almost every kind of clothing piece. Drop-waist dresses, oversized long-line jackets, and super-long dresses will be back in fashion once again. Emphasizing your waistline with a belt is a thing of the past now as you can go for a sexier drop-waist alternative. This style works particularly well for eveningwear and special occasions. Wide-legged denim has laid the foundation for more tailored bottom wear that is constructed from flowy materials like gaberdine, cupro, etc. For a pretty put-together look, partner these with a matching blazer.

8. Color Pops for Ultimate Dopamine Boosting

This year, capsule dressing remains in style, though with updated basics in neutrals such as white, camel, grey, and black. They will be elevated with pops of color such as pistachio green, canary yellow, lavender purple, and millennial pink. If you want to bring a refreshing touch to your appearance, then add a pop color clothing item to your neutral outfit. Don’t worry, neutrals will always be there but a striking pop of color can help you stand apart in the crowd this year. You can go head to toe in one color and make a bold style statement. How about a pantsuit in pistachio green? Up for it?

With many celebs opting for quiet luxury, even commoners these days are going for it.

Iconic preppy layers are added to polo shirts, button-downs, cardigans, and pullovers in the form of flouncy, frothy tulle, and layered mini-skirts, therefore giving it a refreshing touch.

Yes, it’s a pretty unusual combination but if you are bold and brave enough, then you can easily rock it in casual to semi-formal settings. All you need is a bit of confidence and a great smile.

12. The Tweaked Slingback Heels

Slingback heels were hardly talked about for a long time, since slip-ons, sneakers, and pumps were there everywhere. In the recent collections of well-recognized designers such as Phillip Lim and Saint Laurent, the slingback style appeared in a sleek way, like the ones that used to be a huge thing back in the 90s. The return of the iconic slingback style is being celebrated everywhere and you can find them in different shoe styles and heels. Designers have worked hard to rework these elements into various kinds. While these ankle straps were spotted adorned with jewels in ballets in one collection, in another, they were seen in a super sleek shape.

While the blouses, button-downs, and midi skirts as shown by the designers on the ramps are a bit too much for the office setting, you can still go for similar(toned down) looks with a bit of effort and search!
