5 Simple Fashion Trends that are Sweeping the Nation


Fashion is a fickle muse. Just when you think you’ve got a hold of it, it’s changing once again. Today’s fashion changes even faster now that the internet accelerates how quickly people can catch onto a trend, buy into it, get over it, and move on to something new. Check out these five simple and easy to follow fashion trends that are sweeping the nation, and keep your wardrobe on-point and in style!


1. Looser-fit jeans.
You read that right: looser-fitting jeans are all the rage these days. Inspired by the ever-present boyfriend style jean, wider-legged denim is having a serious resurgence right now. While a solid pair of skinny jeans never totally goes out of style, the most on-trend figures right now are sporting comfier jeans with a little room to spare.

Mom-jeans, as they are affectionately known, are best purchased in classic denim hues, from darker indigo to light-wash, to best capture their vintage flair. This style pairs great with a crop top or tucked in t-shirt, and a pair of loafer flats or hip sneakers. Speaking of sneakers…

2. Platform sneakers.
You have probably seen hip girls stomping around in these unlikely favorites. You know the ones: the giant white dad-at-the-BBQ sneakers that for some reason 19-year-olds have become absolutely obsessed with. Platform sneakers are having a serious moment right now, and you wouldn’t want to miss out. Giant stomper sneakers aren’t the only option in the platform shoe category, however.

Many popular shoe brands are producing platform versions of their hallmark sneakers, like Vans and Converse, to cash in on the trend. Pro fashion tip: white platforms are best for easy pairing with any outfit and a pop of bright color to really make those zany shoes stand out.


3. Denim jackets.
America has been having a love affair with denim since Levi Strauss first whipped up a pair of jeans for railroad workers back in the 1890’s. That love has not ceased, and one current form that’s got everyone hooked is the classic denim jacket. Denim jackets are great because they’re comfortable, versatile for a number of different weather conditions, durable enough to last a lifetime, and pair great with almost any casual outfit.

And yes, to answer your question, that does include a pair of jeans. The Canadian tuxedo is officially in vogue, and like it or not, denim-on-denim outfits are extremely popular. Before you knock it too hard, try it out – you might find you like it more than you’re expecting.

4. Graphic tees.
Another all-American classic that keeps coming back around is the graphic T-shirt. Graphic Ts come in all sorts of styles, but vintage-looking ones tend to be the trendiest. Before you head on down to the store to buy an expensive one, though, see if mom or dad has an old T shirt or two they were thinking of throwing out.

While plenty of companies will charge outrageous prices for shirt manufactured to look like they come from a Baby Boomer’s closet, you may be able to get the real deal for free if the older folks in your life are getting ready to throw out their old band shirts or souvenir T’s!

5. Faux fur jackets.
One surprising but absolutely cozy trend that’s blowing up again as we head into the colder months is the faux fur jacket. Often fluffy, poofy, and warm, faux fur jackets are a great option for fall, early, and late winter. Many options are convenient, coming with easy zipper-closure, as well as being comfy as heck.

Plus, you get all the fun and fluff of fur without actually wearing a dead animal on your body like some sort of deranged murderer! We are definitely all about the fluffy jacket trend, and you should be too.
