January Trend Report: New Year, New Style

The start of a new year is a great time to try something new, especially when it comes to your closet. Read on to see which three trends we’re most excited about this month.


Relaxed jumpsuits

If you tend to find yourself in a jeans-and-a-tee fashion rut, this trend is for you. Step it up from the usual suspects by opting for a jumpsuit. Not only does it bring the same ease as your classic combo, you don’t have to worry about pairing separates. Jumpsuits are available in a variety of different styles, but we’re currently sticking to comfort and are opting for relaxed, roomy vibes. Cropped silhouettes are great for dressing down with sneakers, while long, wide-leg styles are ideal for dressing up with a pair of heels.

Utilitarian designs

We know that cargo pants are a divisive topic—you either love them or you hate them. But hear us out on this one. First, they generally come in neutral colorways like olive, sage, and muted brown, making them really versatile. Second, the strategically placed pockets make a bold style statement, and they’re quite useful for holding your personal belongings, too. And finally, their ruggedness makes an undeniable fashion-forward statement when paired with a contrasting top, like a silky blouse or soft-knit sweater. Partial to the trend, but not sure about cargo pants? Try a utilitarian jacket. It offers the same great style and is just as easy to wear.


Strong shoulders

If there were ever a trend to make us feel like street-style stars, it’s this one. There’s just something about blazers and sweaters with tailored shoulders that make us feel cool without even trying. If you’re looking for easy-to-achieve style, unique shoulder detailing such as dramatic padding and structured draping can do the heavy lifting. Not only are these stand-out pieces, but they’re still versatile enough to be worn with just about anything. Throw on a pair of jeans and pumps for a night out with friends, or chinos and sneakers for an edgier look
