Cute Beret Hats
The Beret hat is making a comeback from the grunge days of the ’90s. You may remember the geeky kids, hip-hop stars, and artistic types rocking this look back then — it will be fun to see how the Beret plays into wardrobe styles of 2018. Perhaps you’ll wear one with your hair bunched up underneath the hat, or ponytailed on one side, paired with shoulder-baring shirts? There’s lots of room for creativity here.
Make your footwear sparkle and pop with a touch of glitter, glam, and any other kind of embellishment you can think of. For a more girly look, think of adding a few small flowers and sequins, or maybe some fluffy pom poms. Or perhaps you’d prefer to go for a more futuristic look, with shiny mirrored objects. DIY or not, 2018 is the year to add cute objects to your footwear!
There was a time when you probably fell in love with a certain brand, because of the way their logo arranged letters and words on apparel — think DKNY, Nike, Pumas, Givenchy. The love for logos is back in 2018, and you’ll
probably be seeing fresh looks from your favorite brands.
Soft, Teddy Bear Textures
Who doesn’t love the feeling of something soft and fluffy? Look out for lush teddy bear-like textures in jackets, sweaters, hoodies, and hats. These clothes will have you feeling comfy and cute, whether you’re lounging indoors, or out for a night on the town.
