Rock Tricky Trends the Right Way!

Sometimes the hottest runway trends can be tough to wear in the real world. Truth is, these daring looks can be super-cute when matched up with basic pieces from your closet.
Keep reading for our insider tips to taming wild vests and making tall boots less tough—and everything in between!
Military and band jackets are a must, but you don’t wanna look like ya just marched out of a parade. Pair one with something flirty and feminine to make it a li’l easier and free-flowing. Pop one over a dress with tights, or wear with a ruffled blouse and your fave pair of skinnies.

From sequins to glitzy 80s-inspired metallics, clothes are definitely dazzling this fall. Pair a seriously sequined top with skinny jeans, a cute cardi and flats for a daytime look. Lose the sweater and throw on some heels for a night out. Sequins still a bit scary? Look for pieces with a shimmery trim or a hint of sequined appliqué.

Faux real? Yup, fake fur is totally hot. Pair your vest with dark jeans, a solid, long-sleeve tee and flat boots for a cute cold weather outfit. Want to go boho chic? Wear your cozy faux fur over a great floral print dress with tights and riding boots.

Forget boring black leggings and pull on a pair with an eye-poppin’ print instead.  Whether they are animal print, plaid, striped or lace, these beauties look best with a solid tunic dress or an oversized button-down. Add a wide black belt and you’re done.

Over-the-knee boots can be, well, overwhelming! But matched up with the right threads, they can really make an impact and elongate your gams. Find a flat pair and sport them with tights or skinny jeans and a casual top. Or, go for a mini with a turtleneck sweater with tights and over-the-knee socks for a cozy feel.
