There’s no quicker way to freshen up your classic look than by updating your everyday accessories. Unlike fads, trends show the direction fashion is moving so adding a touch to your outfits will keep you looking current and modern. The secret is to just add a touch because head-to-toe trends scream fashion victim and can be a costly way to dress.
Trends have a lifecycle. When we first start noticing a new one, there are very few options available so they tend to be expensive. By the second and third years, our eye is becoming more accustomed to the look and there are more pieces at many retailers. The prices come down as supply and variety goes up. In the fourth and fifth years of the lifecycle, the trend is available at all price points and plentiful. Beware of spending too much at this point because your cost per wear will be high as the trend dies out and you wear it for a shorter time period.
Stay true to your style and only buy trends you love.

Espadrilles – these are always in style but more so this year and look freshest on sneakers.
Platforms are huge with sky-high versions and flatforms alike. You’ll see lots of cross overs such as the espadrille platform on a sneaker.
Square toes in shoes and sandals are a subtle change and look modern. They tend to be more comfy for women with wider feet and help make the foot look shorter.
