With work and the kids, I know the last thing you think about is what to wear. But if you want to level up your style game in 2018, here are 5 classic trends that you can easily incorporate in your winter wardrobe without looking like a fashion victim.
1. Dad Sneaker
Retro running shoes are making a comeback in both streetwear and workwear. Pair colorblocked or neutral kicks with suit slacks and a button down shirt for a stylish look that’s not too stuffy. Popular combos are rubber soles shoes with suede or leather mixed with technical or knit fabrics.
2. Statement Socks
Brands like Soxy are helping you add some personality to your everyday look with socks in bright, colorful prints. From traditional motifs such as paisleys and argyle to more contemporary patterns like mustaches and maps, the bold socks trend will inspire you to hem your pants 3 inches higher.
Needlepoint corduroy is a heavy-duty fabric with a soft feel. It looks great in sophisticated pieces such as a blazer but also has a fun retro vibe. Go for neutral tones such as hunter green or khaki and mix up textures in your look with other leather accessories or suede items.
4. Checks & Plaids
Traditional tartan plaids get an update with warm russet tones. Plaids are popping up everywhere from streetwear fashion to American heritage brands. Keep it simple with the bold print by sticking to one key item such as a scarf, sneakers, or hat. Expect to see this trend transition to spring with sun-faded checks in linen and cotton.
5. Newsboy Caps
And of course we have to include the timeless newsboy cap. The perfect accessory to keep you warm between seasons and make you look instantly more put-together. Right now, I’m loving the classic 8 panel style in wool with a vintage style puff, but this silhouette also looks dope in suede and corduroy for a more retro feel.
