Apart from being on top of things, like scooping the latest fashion trends and voguish looks, having your few key pieces is the building block of a trendy wardrobe. By having a clear picture of what some of your must-have pieces are, it’s easy to add a few extras and mix and match to always rock an outfit that’s interesting, stylish, and uniquely you. Keep on reading for our 7 must-have picks to build your trendy wardrobe.
- Metallic Jewelry
Adding a few metallic pieces of jewelry is often all you need to make an outfit look complete. Statement bib necklaces can make a typical outfit look dramatically cool and stylish while midi sized rings, knuckle shields, cocktail rings, and two-finger rings can make you look fashion-forward. Just pick a certain type of jewelry that you love, and make it your signature. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, you may actually mix your metals and wear layers of necklaces and bracelets to channel your unique style. Metallic jewelry will go with anything, whether you’re dressed up or down.
- Brightly Colored Shoes
Trade your classic black pumps to a pair of brightly colored shoes that will add some life and color to your trendy wardrobe. Like fashion blogger Veronica Popoiacu, spice up your dull and plain gray outfit with a pair of pink pumps and a bag that will instantly make your classic look trendy. If you’re not a fan of bright colors or versatility is your concern, opt for metallic shoes in the shades of silver or gold to make them perfect for every outfit you have while making your style a bit glamorous and modern.
- Color Blocked Pieces
Color blocking is one of the trendy styles you may go for a contemporary look. Also, you may think of pairing unexpected color combinations like pink with brown, gray with turquoise, red with yellow and such to create a trendy look. If you’re not confident mixing and matching unusual color combinations, simply opt for a color blocked piece like a skirt, top, coat, or a dress, that will do tricks for you.
- Geometric and Art-Inspired Ensembles
Geometric patterns and art-inspired prints are modern looks you may go for to channel your creative vibe. Though black-and-white stripes, retro polka dots, and classic checks are geometric-inspired, you may widen out your imagination with optic illusion prints, abstract patterns, and geometric prints with sculptural styles. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, stay chic and feminine with an abstract print dress while making your street looks contemporary with a pair of striped sandals.
- Architectural Silhouettes
The architectural trend is one of the modern styles you may think of if you love architecture, sculpture, and art. Like street style star Christina Centenera, simply opt for an oversized sweater in a stiff fabric worn with a draped top and a structured skirt to make things effortlessly cool. Or, stay chic and feminine with Jessica’s Stein’s look, wearing a cropped sweater and an architectural lace skirt with a pair of geometric inspired sandals.
- Bold Colored Tops
If you’re not a fan of prints and architectural silhouette, simply go bold and colorful on your top. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, make a statement with a turquoise tank top worn with a pair of chic shorts making your street style trendy yet feminine. You don’t have to go for neon shades all the time as the classic shades of red, cobalt blue, and purple can be bold enough without making your style flashy and overdone.
- Structured Bags and Clutches
Bags and clutches can make or break your look, so make sure they’ll complement the trendy looks you’re aiming for. Structured bags and clutches add some polish to your outfit regardless if you’re wearing an oversized coat, boyfriend jeans, or a shapeless dress. Just go for the ones with a great structure and color to complement your outfit so you’ll create a trendy statement effortlessly.
