There aren’t many days we wake up as moms and emerge from the closet where the latest fashion trends. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like to be “in the know” when it comes to the current styles. Whether you consider yourself a fashionista, or just like to pick one or two trends to embrace this season, we’ve got all the trends in women’s fashion that are hot this year. The styles this year are big, bold and in some ways, over the top!

1. Structured Statement Earrings

Go big or go home is the motto when it comes to earrings this year. When you can’t manage to be in style from the neck down, simply through on a pair of oversized, statement earrings to keep the focus on your face and call it a day. This year, metal, clunky and large earrings are hot. Grab a pair of oversized hoops or some chunky, layered pieces and you’ll be instantly in style.

2. Wide Leg Pants

If you’ve been waiting for the skinny jean phase to fizzle out, you’re in luck! Wide leg pants are back and they are bigger than ever. Cropped or full length, this style is perfect for professionals or more casual affairs. Trends show the style is popular in solids and bold prints, a little something for everyone.

3. Berets

Bye bye, boho wide-brimmed hats. Hello berets! Cover up a bad hair day (hello day 4 of the mom bun) or use as an accessory when you need something to pull together your outfit, the beret is tre chic.

4. Embellished Shoes

Buckles, pearls, jewels and studs are hot on shoes this year. Dress up a boring pair of sneakers, or opt for the bejeweled pumps for your next fancy event. Plain is out and statement shoes are in.

5. Sheer Socks

Boring, white cotton socks? Please. Sheer socks are in and they’re definitely more fun than function. Worn with cute pumps, Mary Janes, sneakers or sandals (my inner Southern Californian is cringing), sheer socks are an easy way to embrace this year’s fashions.

6. Side Slits

No, we aren’t talking about slits that show off your entire thigh (thank GOODness), we are talking about that little extra detail to an otherwise typically blouse or skirt. Snag just a few tunics, midi dresses, tops or even pants with this detail that’s definitely eye catching to embrace the trend this year.

7. Long Layers

Kimonos, dusters and below-the-knee jackets and sweaters give this year’s trend that cozy feel, while sticking to the overall “bigger is better” vibe. Outfits with tons of layers and texture are perfect for moms.

8. Lucite & Patent Leather

Large, lucite jewelry and accessories, and patent leather shoes and clothing are on the up this year. Plastic fashion takes us back a few decades, but the bold styles make this style pretty fun.
