Merry Christmas Eve!
We are getting very close to the end of 2018, and I can’t think of a better time to highlight some of the season’s hottest trends–while they’re still piping hot! So if you get a little spending money or a nice gift card for Christmas, here are some great pieces you could invest in.
The Cold Shoulder
Cardigans have been a fall/winter must-have for a while, but I’ve noticed they’ve been getting longer recently. The cardigan that hangs below the knee is the hot ticket this season. Extra cozy. Extra comfy. All the more to love.
I’ll admit, it took me a minute to warm up to this one. It’s sort of an oxymoron, isn’t it? A crop-top that’s a sweater? My first thought was, “Well it’s not exactly keeping you warm…” But this trend has remained popular a lot longer than I expected, and I’m starting to get it.
For one thing, we should all know by now that looking cute isn’t always about practicality. If it’s crucial that you stay totally warm, this isn’t what you’re going to go for. This is what you wear when you’re wanting to achieve a certain aesthetic. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
For another thing, the days of women covering up their bodies in shame are dwindling away–thank God. So if your top shows a little peek of your tummy, well, yay! Wear it proudly. Let yourself feel good in your own skin. It’s excellent for your mental health.
Bonus: They’re perfect with high-waisted pants!
“Teddy Bear” Coats
The Classic Denim Jacket
To be honest, I’m not sure there was ever a time when this wasn’t in style… But it’s definitely in now. The great thing about denim is its durability. One quality jacket could potentially last forever, and it’s neutral enough to go with almost any look. Something I’ve noticed recently is that people are wearing these jackets with dresses and skirts a lot, like the above photo. I’m a big fan!
Big, large-knit sweaters are the thing to wear this winter. Bonus points if the sleeves are long enough to cover your hands and the hem hangs below your booty. What a fun thing to be in style! Cute and comfortable don’t always coincide, do they? But in these sweaters, you’ll be entirely cozy and unrestricted, and fashionable at the same time.
As always, I hope you’ve enjoyed. I wanted to keep this post short and sweet, because obviously you’re most likely busy with your festivities today. Thanks for joining me, dear readers. I wish you the happiest of holidays.
Have a beautiful week.
