Choosing the right signature style can be a challenge. It’s all about finding the right look for your personality and preferences. Additionally, some styles are more accessible and easier to put together than others.
Here are five eye-catching fashion styles that trendsetters are loving this year. Read on to discover which one suits you best.
Bollywood has inspired some incredible looks over the decades. We can thank the trendsetters of the Bollywood red carpet for everything from single-shoulder gowns to crop tops to tunics. Indo-western fashion is the reason men in the Western hemisphere are starting to wear rich fabrics and stunning embroidered floral suits. You can check the Nihal Fashions to see some incredible Indo-Western men’s attire.
Indo-western fashion is ideal for those of Middle Eastern descent who want to pay homage to the traditional looks with a new, modern twist.
Lolita fashion stems from a Japanese subcultural fashion movement that’s become more prevalent in recent decades. This versatile look pays tribute to Victorian and Rococo fashion trends of the 18th century. The idea behind this look is innocence, coverage, and propriety.
There are many different Lolita looks, with the three most popular being Sweet, Classic, and Goth. This is an inclusive fashion trend that suits all body types and backgrounds and pairs well with other alternative styles like steampunk and gingham. The Lolita look is ideal for those who miss the good old days of the Renaissance and want to bring back petticoats.
Over the past few years, the athleisure fashion industry has become a multibillion-dollar industry. The athleisure fashion movement is forecasted to reach $257.1 billion annually by 2026.
The athleisure look has even inspired clothing by luxury designers like Versace and Prada. The idea is to look gym-ready anywhere, whether you’re heading to the club or the runway. Really, anywhere except the gym.
Witchy fashion, sometimes called Nu Goth, is a movement toward occult-inspired attire. Many witchy fashionistas take inspiration from the White Witch herself, Stevie Nicks. This dark bohemian look is coming back with a vengeance in 2020 and promises to dominate the first half of the decade.
This fashion look is great for you if you like wearing black, enjoy celestial symbolism, and feel like the Wicked Witch of the West didn’t get her due. If Halloween is your favorite holiday, this look is probably for you.
While the name invokes a negative emotional response, “Yuccie” stands for young creative individuals. This look is a bit yuppie— young urban professional— and a bit hipster. The Yuccie look has become synonymous with the millennial generation, giving the air of casual professionalism and minimal effort.
The Yuccie look includes a lot of neutral colors, especially grey. Your average Yuccie wears Blundstones everywhere, denim and beanie hats, and probably carries a messenger bag. If you left the white-collar world to pursue your own creative dreams, this look is perfect for you.
These five fashion looks are just a taste of the many alternative fashion trends currently making waves. Choose one that suits your style or create something that’s uniquely you.
