Ever found yourself wondering what the latest trends are? Fear not, here I've outlined them all for you!

Statement necklaces- the one accessory you have to have. Dress up simple v-necks with loud statement necklaces. Forever 21 has some cute ones.

Plaid- you’d have to be living under a rock not to know this one! Be slightly cautious when you wear plaid, because it can make you look like a fashion amateur if you wear it the wrong way. I think the best ways are to wear either a long plaid tunic with leggings, a plaid button up, well, buttoned up, or one unbuttoned with a graphic t underneath. Delia’s has some cute button ups, while Urban Outfitters has some gorgeous tunics.

Leather Jackets- Must haves! A great casual combination is a black motorcycle jacket with a gray tank and some black pants. Add a black hobo to top off the look Be ready to dish out some major moolah if you want a genuine leather one, but if you’re willing to sacrifice for the sake of your wallet, try Forever 21.

Leopard print- it’s everywhere, literally. Leopard shirts and pants can get tacky if you don’t pull them off perfectly, so if you want to bring some junglish style into your wardrobe the right way, pair a plain old outfit with some leopard print flats or a purse. I’ve seen a lot of cute leopard print things in Forever 21

Floral- be careful not to go overboard with the floral dresses, since summer has passed, but floral scarves are a must have accessory this season! Pair one with a white v-neck and some light wash denim shorts or jeans for a cute look. Forever 21 is floral heaven, but try your mom’s closet for some cute vintage pieces!

Fedoras- very in! Pair colored ones with almost any outfit to add instant chic-status. My favorite would have to be a denim fedora with a white tank top and dark wash jeans. Urban Outfitters has very cute fedoras

Flared jeans- another trend you need to be careful with, because if your top is too loose, you could be visiting the dreadful Woodstock fashion era. Instead, pair some flared jeans with a bright graphic t and a leather riding jacket. Vintage stores or thrift shops might be your best bet here, but raiding mom’s closet again might not be a bad idea…

Blazers- they’re great for making any outfit just a tad bit more dressy, and can add edge to anything. Try a black blazer with a white tank and gray pants and a gray clutch for a Camilla Belle inspired look. I honestly haven’t found any stores with amazing ones, but Gap has a couple boyfriend-inspired ones that are pretty good.
