How To

7 Trends That Are Coming For You This Season

Hide your credit card, hide your wife.

Good afternoon! Can I get you a refreshment? A cushion? Some popcorn? No? Okay, well please take a seat and make yourself at home—it’s time to kick off today’s very special episode of The 7 Trends That Are Coming For You This Season. While that sounds frightfully ominous, like a horror film in which the trends crawl out of a television screen like Samara from The Ring, it’s a different, much more palatable genre entirely. Say, a romantic comedy where your future self plays the love interest to the following 7 swoon-worthy trends as if they were mother flippin’ Mr. Darcy himself.

While we’re still a fan of the classics (please never leave us jeans, t-shirts, blazers and every movie starring Audrey Hepburn, ever), and would never advise completely ripping a trend if it weren’t true to the ~real you~, sometimes it’s fun to throw caution to the wind (and your credit card details at the keyboard), and indulge in a little bit of a trend-based shopping. In fact, in this case, it’d be impolite not to, given that the Goddesses of Getting Dressed have been busy cooking up the most scrumptious outfits of late.

Be on the right side of history by investing in the following trends, before everyone else does…

Hot Pink

I’m sorry millennial pink, but we are officially over. It’s not you, it’s us. Swear. We’re just looking to stir the pot everywhere we go by way of our sartorial choices, and, quite frankly, your subdued nature is standing in our way of that goal. Don’t be mad that we replaced you with a hotter pink, just be glad that it happened in the first place…

Shell Accessories

Everyone knows that when you hold a giant shell up to your ear, you are guaranteed to hear the soft crash of a wave on the ocean’s edge, or the sideways pitter patter of a crab as it clambers over a rock. But were you also aware that when you wear miniature shells as accessories, you will feel exactly like the Little Mermaid did when she regained both her voice and the love of her Prince?

Puff-Sleeves

If your sleeves don’t vaguely resemble a puffer fish this year, then you are doing it all wrong! Likewise, if they don’t make you feel like you are somewhere between a character in a Charles Dickens novel and your mum in the ’80s, then it’s probably time you re-evaluated your entire approach to dressing.

90s Hair Accessories

There’s no better feeling than completely updating your steez for under $6—something that can easily be achieved by popping down to the hair accessories aisle of your local chemist.

Our queen, Solange, can probably be fully credited for the 90s hair accessory redux with her spectacular A Seat At The Table album cover (see also THIS!!!). They have since been keeping unruly flyways off faces the world over, having replaced their predecessor, the scrunchie as our fave accessory.

Our money is on ribbons—as seen on the back of Millie Bobby Brown’s head—being next…

Berets

The beret trend has been hanging around but that doesn’t mean it should be disqualified from this race, given its promise to provide our heads with shelter for many months to come. Pair with a long white smock or a checked blazer and you’ll be sure to catfish people into thinking you hail from the country that spawned it (France, duh).
