Trend Watch Wednesday: {A Trio}

I couldn't choose just one trend for today, so I picked three instead! The more the better, right? Anyway, I'm pretty excited to share with y'all some of the cute items I've seen lately...

Smoking Slippers

These shoes are a cross between a ballet flat and a moccassin, which also makes it a perfect balance of style and comfort!

Fashion-lovers like Olivia Palermo and Kate Moss have been rocking the smoking slipper as of late.

Architectural Skirts

Giambattista Valli's Fall 2011 collection included tons of dresses and skirts with multi-dimensional, almost architectural elements. Since we can't all afford a Valli original (le sigh...) we'll need to look for more budget-friendly brands.

ASOS produced two skirts that are eerily similar to Valli's, but MUCH less expensive. I'm digging the purple, but if you're timid to try this trend, try something like the blue version first!

Blue here // Purple here


Fringe is something we saw a lot of this past Fall, however it's still going to trend this spring, too! Whether it's an embellishment on a pair of booties, (like the below Sam Edelman Louie Bootie), or the main feature, like a purse (similar bag here by Threadsense), it's hot-to-trot right now!

(Similar swimsuit to below here)

Obviously, yours truly is a fan of the fringe trend, too!
