Favorite Trends

Before we know it, all the Fall & Winter clothing will be gone off the racks as stores start bringing in the new Spring lines.  I suppose this has a bright side too...1) even though we won't really be able to wear any Spring-like ensembles for another few months (depending on where you live), it's still a breath of fresh air to see the new colors & trends & gets us excited for the warmer weather eventually heading our way...2) anything you may have wanted from the Fall/Winter trends is most likely going to be on serious markdown in the next few weeks/months.  Yep, it's o.k. to still be purchasing cold-weathered items.  Most of us still have 3-4 months before the weather really starts warming up.

I thought I'd share with you some of the current trends that I'm loving.  Some of these will still be very wearable in the Spring & maybe Summer.  Versatility...gotta love it!

Elbow Patch Tops

ASOS sweater / Red cardigan / Sequin top / Elbow Patch Raglan Sweater | FOREVER21 - 2072330881 / jcp™ Thermal Colorblock Sweater - JCPenney

I have really liked these Elbow-Patch sweaters & cardigans since they came on the scene.  Although, I don't have one (yet), I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a good deal.  I'm really liking the black & white faux leather patch one on the top right as well as the sequin patch top below it.

Polka Dot Tops

Wallis keyhole top / Dex transparent blouse / Polka dot top / Adidas striped top / Polka dot top / Woven top / LC Lauren Conrad bow top / Dot cardigan

I am obsessing over Polka Dots right now!  I think I'm obsessing because it's a fun pattern & very easily mixed with other patterns.  I did recently splurge on a blouse & I'll have a future blog post about it :-)


Tinley Road black vest / Charter Club jacket / Nicole By Nicole Miller vest / Xersion pink puffer vest / Black vest / Tweed waistcoat

I'd like to add a couple more vests to my closet.  I think they can offer just the right amount of warmth as well as texture to an outfit.  From faux fur vests, to puffer vests, to tweed or herringbone print vests...they can all add pizazz to an outfit.

Pencil Skirts
Pencil skirt / Mango pencil skirt / Zara pencil skirt / Liz Claiborne pencil skirt / Worthington skirt / Worthington skirt / Pencil skirt

Another hot trend right now is the Pencil Skirt.  You can find them in pretty much any solid color or pattern.  I like how you can pair a Pencil Skirt with a blouse, sweater, cardigan/cami set, or casual tee.  They provide a lot of versatility, which is a must for me.  Hm...maybe another blog post there too!

There you have it...some of my favorite current trends.  How about you...what are your favorite trends as we near the end of the Fall/Winter clothing season?
