ZARA: This Once Passé Trend Is Now a Fashion-Person Staple

There was once a time when off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder tops reigned supreme in the shirting realm. Then, like many items as they travel throughout the trend cycle, they sort of fizzled out in recent seasons in favor of trendy mock-neck styles and the sort. But asymmetrical tops, in particular, are pushing their way towards the sartorial forefront again, and the chicest fashion girls are taking note. There’s nothing passé about this neckline right now.
Yep, when I scrolled through my Saved photos on IG to get some cool outfit ideas, I was delighted to uncover that quite a hefty chunk featured one-shoulder tops styled in a plethora of modern ways. I’m talking neutral bodysuits teamed with wide-leg trousers and cardigans, statement tops with jeans and bold accessories, and everything in-between.
To showcase this newer fashion-person staple even more, I rounded up some of the said ensembles I’m into featuring the asymmetric shirt front and center. And naturally, I also shopped out each inspired look as well if you’re looking to jump back on this trend wagon again.
Team a white bodysuit with trousers and a coordinating cardigan for a trendy vibe. Gold jewelry compliments the look just flawlessly.
A cropped asymmetric top is particularly cool with of-the-moment utility pants.
Elevate a one-shoulder top even more with a slouchy blazer and cool pleated pants.
An outfit featuring a black top paired with balloon-type jeans and strappy sandals is simple yet statement-making.
While the neutral tops are definitely reigning supreme, printed iterations are also having a moment worn with jeans.
Keep it chic and easy with a black asymmetric top, skinny jeans, and loafers.

ZARA:7 Looks That Prove Leather Pants Are as Easy to Wear as Jeans

All the Ways to Wear is a monthly series where we round up the personal twists the Who What Wear team is putting on one particular item, style, or trend. Whether it’s the trending denim of the moment or the season’s It print, we hope to inspire your daily outfits and up the cost per wear on some of our favorite items.
I’m an avid denim wearer to the point where I sometimes go weeks without wearing anything else. It’s hard not to be when they’re just so dang versatile, but I’m making a conscious effort to switch up my winter outfits more. Enter leather pants: the bottom style I never knew I needed and that I now can’t live without. I personally find them as easy to style as my trusty jeans and find they look a bit more polished for work and nights out.
I’m clearly not alone—practically everyone in the Who What Wear offices has been wearing leather (or faux leather!) pants recently. Translation? Styling ideas in abundance. For your viewing pleasure are my current seven favorite leather-pant outfits spotted on my chic coworkers…
This look is simple at its core: a plain white tee, leather pants, and loafers. But when you top it off with a fun color-block bag and a plaid shirt jacket (shacket anyone?), then you’ve got a cool off-duty look that will get you stopped on the street.
Unexpected color combos simply put a smile on my face, and this pink-and-green pairing is no exception. It’s definitely all the proof I need that leather pants can be worn pretty much until sweater weather turns into sweaty weather.
I love the juxtaposition between a polished button-down and edgier leather pants, especially for a sleek office outfit. I also will be wearing my collars outside of my jackets until further notice. Is #laurenmademedoit trending yet?
The matching sweater set, the chunky gold chain necklace, the lug-sole boots… there are so many important things happening in this outfit that I almost forgot about those cool leather jogger pants. Everything about this cozy outfit is why I’m able to leave my NYC apartment in the dead of winter.
Black-and-white outfits always feel polished, even when they involve a casual sweater and high-top converse. I’m also really into this little trendy snakeskin handbag for completing the two-tone look.
These pants are arguably the most tailored of the bunch, making them the perfect polished wardrobe piece for epic office style. When topped off with a plaid blazer and pointy croc boots, this could be a great outfit to impress your boss in.
This weekend-ready outfit is ideal for days when a bright color is the only thing getting you through the dreary weather.

ZARA:This Elegant Trend Sort of Died, But It’s Coming Back to Life Next Year

There are certain trends that basically come “in and out” every few seasons. I consider these to be sort of like yo-yo trends—they’ll rise up in a noteworthy way one year only to basically die down the next before they rise back up, and so on. Peplum tops (when fabric gathers at the waist and flares out) are one of said trends.
TBH, you probably have a few peplum shirts in the back of your closet from when the trend dominated a few years ago and everyone (legit, everyone) seemed to wear them thanks to their inherently chic and elegant nature. Well, it may be time to include pretty peplum-detailed pieces in your arsenal of standbys come 2020. That’s right, some of the biggest runway heavy-hitters from Tibi to Alexander McQueen showcased modern interpretations of the trend with ruffle-like accents and cropped shapes throughout their S/S 20 collections.
Below, I rounded up a bit of visual inspiration for the return of the peplum top for you, as showcased on the runway and through street style. I also shopped out a range of the coolest, most fashion-forward peplum tops to buy right now if you’re ready to re-introduce the look into your closet. Welcome back, peplum.
Khaite’s interpretation of the peplum showcases how the trend has evolved in 2020 with the ruffled bottom, ruched bodice, and cap-sleeve detail.
This slightly cropped peplum top in the sweet orange hue at Tibi is especially modern with the monochromatic cargo trousers.
Alexander McQueen’s bold leather peplum jacket-top hybrid is striking with the puff sleeve and strong shoulders.
Never shy of bold colors, MSGM amped up the peplum with an eye-catching color-blocked option with laser-cut details.
This sophisticated peplum outfit at Michael Kors feels classic yet incredibly of-the-moment with the addition of the studded belt.
Style Tip: A white peplum top with sharp sleeves pairs flawlessly with straight-leg jeans for that casual 9-to-5 life or in that 5-to-9 life as well.
Style Tip: A matching set is no-fail (toss both pieces on, and you’re set) and quite forward with unexpected accessories like canvas sneakers and mesh bag.
Style Tip: A peplum top in a neutral hue that has a touch of shine is so modern with light-wash jeans for any holiday party this season.
Style Tip: Make an instant statement in a black peplum top with eye-catching details like the sheer paneling and high neck here. Try it with an equally bold pencil skirt and knee-high boots to take the vibe to the next level.
Style Tip: Add a belt to a white blouse to give it even more dimension teamed with statement pants and black booties.
Style Tip: A peplum blouse with architectural elements (like the balloon sleeves) is impactful on its own, and requires nothing more than a pair of black pants and fun flats.
Style Tip: Similar to the Alexander McQueen look above, the jacket-top peplum hybrids are ramping up to be a must-have for a polished vibe paired with trousers for elegant affairs.

H&M:Going up the Country

Summer’s gone and so are the carefree days that belong to the warm season. Refusing to accept the humdrum of everyday life, we pack fall’s best utility pieces and journey north.
Either the city fills you with energy, or it drains you of it. When sounds of honking taxis and crowded restaurants don’t inspire us, we escape to the cabin for a weekend in the country.
It’s not yet cold enough for heavy jackets, but just perfect for cozy sweaters, practical pants and sharp boiler suits. We want dressing to be easy and comfortable — but still cute enough for an occasional stroll through the village.
THE SEASON’S STYLE TRICK
When you thought there were no more ways to wear a boiler suit, the season’s statement styling trick came along. Tuck your forest green one-piece into a pair of light brown high-shaft boots for a new take on the utility trend.
FALL FLORALS
Although the air is getting brisker and the days shorter, we still haven’t abandoned the thought of florals and bare legs. The cold-weather solution? Swap flip-flops for over-knee boots and light patterns for a darker ditto.
PILE PERFECTION
Even if there’s still a chance to bare some skin, winter is creeping closer. A cozy pile jacket is the perfect throw-over, whether you’re going for a hike in the woods or a walk in the city.
STRICTLY UTILITARIAN
Of all the ways to take on utility dressing, we have two preferred directions. First: the modern way that partners high-waist pants with a romantic balloon-sleeved blouse and ankle boots. Second, the casual way combining utility pants with a zipped-up hairy knit.
THE (KN)IT COLOR
A boxy knit is one of those forever pieces, essential in any wardrobe for its versatility and ease. Opt away from the ordinary color scheme and brighten up the dark season with a pop of color. Combine with a floral midi skirt and high-shaft boot, and throw on a heavy puffer coat if the weather demands it.

TOPSHOP:7 Of The Most Iconic Suits Worn By Women Ever

Nothing says power dressing quite like a woman wearing a suit. What started as a way for women to break down gender norms in the ’60s has long become the most effortlessly cool thing you can wear and has been spotted on some of the most stylish women in history through the decades. From Princess Diana to Lady Gaga, discover seven of the most iconic suits worn by women ever…

  1. Brigitte Bardot (1967)
    Brigitte Bardot defined the look of the ’60s and is known as the ultimate sex icon of the time. Here she proves that a two-piece suit can ooze just as much sex appeal as a slinky mini dress. We love the detail of going for one row of buttons, rather than the classic double-breasted style.
  2. Julia Roberts (1989)
    Julia Roberts famously ditched the evening gown for an oversized suit and tie ensemble at the 1989 Golden Globes where she picked up the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in Steel Magnolias. It doesn’t get much more iconic than this.
  3. Princess Diana (1997)
    Anything Princess Diana was seen in became an instant trend, and it was no different when she wore an array of power suits in the ’90s. In 1997, she even ditched the royal gowns and wore a suit to an auction of some of her own dresses in New York.
  4. Spice Girls (1998)
    The Spice Girls wearing matching suits? Sounds like pure girl power to us. At the premiere of their Spice World film, the ultimate girlband came decked out in matching suits but each member added their own touch in shoes and bras.
  5. Blake Lively (2018)
    What does the power suit look like in this decade? If we go by Blake Lively (and that’s always a good idea) the two-piece should be as neon-coloured as possible. Extra points if you add a matching top and add some contrast with your shoes and lipstick.
  6. Cara Delevingne (2018)
    It’s no secret that Cara Delevingne is one of our all-time favourite it-girls. Her androgynous look that always challenges the norms, is truly unique. We can only dream we could pull off a full tuxedo (including a top hat) as well as she does.
  7. Lady Gaga (2018)
    When Lady Gaga showed up in that oversized Marc Jacobs suit at the Elle Women in Hollywood event it was already an iconic moment. What made it even more memorable was her moving speech in which she declared: ‘I decided today, I wanted to take the power back. Today I wear the pants.’

ASOS:THREE WAYS TO WEAR CARGO PANTS

Fashion and function are having a 90s-themed reunion this summer, and All-Saints-approved utility is back in a big way. So, take tips from your fave combat-wearing girl group and pick up some loosely cut cargo pants for a fresh summer look. The best thing about them? They can be styled up or down to finesse so many different ‘fits – so you can nail your 9-5 and your 5-9.
Work it
Looking for laid-back office vibes? Perfect your TGIF wardrobe by pairing these soft cargo pants with a lightweight tailored blazer, opting for a sleeveless cut for muggy summer days. Up the ante with high-heeled mules and a sleek little shoulder bag for that ‘sliding into the weekend’ look.
The Weekenders
If you’re heading off on a day trip or just to the park with pals, there’s a utility look for that, too. Slip your fave new pants on with a cream crop top and gleaming white sneakers for low-key cool. Oh, and don’t forget accessories for some supermodel-inspired street style – think the Hadid sisters’ statement earrings and skinny sunglasses to finish off the look.
Cargo Club
Go hands-free on your next night out and put those classic cargo pant pockets to good use. Great for a BNO with the crew, you can dress them up with statement jewellery and your fave clutch. And just ‘cos they’re khaki doesn’t mean you need to go all neutral – team them with a sparkly crop top and statement strappy sandals, and you’ll be catching looks in no time.

ASOS:WHY CARGO TROUSERS ARE CARRYING ON FOR SS19

Carried on the back of the ongoing 90s revival, cargo trousers have cemented their return to the fashion mainstream via the SS19 catwalks – and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Easily recognisable thanks to their side pockets, these All Saints-approved all-stars bring a strong mix of military and safari vibes, which, ICYMI, are two of the season’s biggest trends. At first, you may think the somewhat bulky silhouette is tricky to wear, but they work beautifully with neutral shades and tailored cuts. See below for some fresh cargo inspo.
Seen at
Fendi’s SS19 collection was a sporty, adventurous and super-elevated mash-up that saw Gigi Hadid strutting down the catwalk in these beige beauties. Trousers with pockets-a-plenty are traditionally associated with the army, while their neutral tones mean soldiers can fade into the background – but Gigi managed to remain the centre of attention on the Italian label’s catwalk, naturally.
Seen on
Cargo pants bring back memories of late-90s girl bands or rebellious early-00s teenagers (inspired by Avril Lavigne in the Sk8er Boi era, obvs). And ASOS Kicki is serving some nostalgic angsty punk realness in this on-point getup. She pairs her wintery, darker cargos with an oversized Tupac T-shirt and some XXL Buffalos, resulting in a laid-back look we’ll be stealing stat.
Try it on
Wanna go on your own adventure? Even if you’re travelling no further than the end of your road, Weekday’s cargo trousers will help you discover new (stylish) horizons. As you can see, they work beautifully with a crisp white shirt – and as for the socks and sandals, wear them if you dare for extra style kudos. Added bonus: you won’t have to bring your handbag thanks to the very functional (and steezy) pockets. Win.

ZARA:11 Japanese Fashion Trends Taking Over the Streets of Tokyo

When we think about Japanese fashion trends, our imagination often turns to over-the-top street stylings seen in the Harajuku district of Tokyo or in the pages of Fruits. While the distinct fashion subcultures showcased there are certainly still thriving, the streets of Tokyo are brimming with more accessible Japanese fashion trends bound to inspire your more adventurous outfit stylings.
Japanese fashion girls put their own twist on jumpsuits in khaki and denim iterations, liven up ensembles with bold pops of bright yellow, play with proportions in dramatic maxi skirts and wide-leg pants, and ground their venturesome stylings with black leather shoes that range from classic (ankle boots or Mary Janes) to fashion-forward (platform brogues and pointed-toe flats that harken back to the Elizabethan era). Look no further than below for the latest in Japanese fashion trends.
This bold outfit features two of Tokyo’s big trends—oversize bottoms with wide-leg striped pants and pops of primary colors, and yellow graphic T-shirts balanced out by a bold red lip and matching heels.
When the outfit takes a more subdued approach to color, interest is created by playing with proportions and incorporating unexpected textures. This oversize and intentionally ill-fitted suede coat does both of those things, and it finds footing with statement black leather shoes.
It would be an understatement to reduce this floor-length canary yellow duster to a “pop of primary color.” Paired with the unexpected textures of a fur under layer, a bamboo handbag, and bold statement jewelry, the only subtle part of the outfit is the black leather boots.
This denim jumpsuit look requires few additional accessories to make a statement. If you look closely, you’ll see that it’s actually a pair of wide-leg overalls topped off with a matching jean jacket. Black leather platform brogues give the denim-on-denim look an added cool factor, and the army-green bomber jacket brings it all together in colder weather.
A true jumpsuit, the head-to-toe khaki look is livened up by a pop of primary color via the patterned silk scarf worn as a neckerchief. The jumpsuit’s large fit is made chic with a black belt tied tightly at the waist and oversize bottoms tucked into black satin ankle boots.
A tweed jacket and Mary Janes worn with socks make this ensemble wonderfully retro, but the bright pop of yellow and round sunglasses keep the look forward-thinking and cool.
Unexpected textures combine with sneakers and athletic socks to create an eclectic ensemble. The look plays with proportions by incorporating a long paisley patterned coat with a knee-length button-down and a maxi skirt.
This ensemble exhibits the oversize bottoms trend and plays with proportions. Wide-leg pants (worn extra long) and a blazer are unexpectedly cinched in at the waist with a matching black corset and topped off with an oversize trench coat.
The jacquard effect of this maxi skirt adds a feminine touch to the otherwise all-black ensemble, while a leather biker jacket and black leather platform brogues add an edgy vibe.
Elizabethan-esque black leather pointed-toe shoes get even funkier when they’re worn with white socks and paired with lace-up pants and a cropped denim jacket with statement detailing.
This maxi skirt and button-down pairing is made inimitably chic with an off-the-shoulder jacket, and black leather ankle boots pare down the entire ensemble.
This post was originally published at an earlier date and has since been updated. Next up, discover the fail-safe two-piece outfit combo Tokyo girls can’t stop wearing.

Summer Tops To Try On–stitchfix

It’s summer, are you ready for a wardrobe refresh? This season is a great time to try some new trends, and tops are the perfect way to do that. Get ready to perk up those white jeans, those denim cutoffs, those chic-but-basic work pantspants are an item of clothing worn from the waist to the ankles, covering both legs separately (rather than with cloth extending across both legs as in robes, skirts, and dresses).. We’ve got a summer’s worth of the cutest trends in tops, starting right here, right now.

BUTTON, BUTTON
Looking for something crisp and cool as a cucumber for your 9:00-5:00? A sleeveless, striped button-front top is the definition of crisp and cool. Pair with black pants and pop-of-color slides for work, and tuck it into your favorite denimDenim is a sturdy cotton warp-faced twill textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the denim that distinguishes it from cotton duck (a linen canvas). to wear into the weekend.

SHOULDER THE STYLE
Trending for a few seasons now, a cold shoulder top is the perfect way to show a little skin…but not too much. Done up in a pop-y floral print, this top is as cheerful and pretty as it gets. We love it with a strappy sandal and a denim jacketsA jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing., so your shoulders don’t get too cold.

GO WITH THE FLOW
The boho flow, that is. Sweltering summer temps call for a bit of air circulation and some sun protection—and flowy-style tops have it made in the shade, even if you aren’t in the shade. We love toughening up a voluminous, feminine top with a touch of military style, say cargos or other bottoms in olive drab.

TIE ONE ON
It’s a little bit country and way more than a little bit cute—the tie-front top is the perfect way to add some playful flair to anything from your favorite cutoffs to a full skirt. Whether it comes with long or short sleeves, in a solid or a print (we love these peppy stripes), this is a summer top we know you’ll get a lot of wear out of.

WRAP STAR
Feminine and waist-accentuating, a wrap top is flattering on lots of body types, and pairs perfectly with sleek pants, distressed denim, and a wide range of skirt styles. We like this elegant top with cropped white denim and a sophisticated tote—perfect for a casual date or brunch with friends.

PEP, PEP, HURRAY
Whether you like your peplums small and frilly or big and flouncy, you really can’t go wrong with a pretty little top with a ruffle around the bottom. This type of top adds a lot of style to whatever you want to pair it with. May we recommend a denim skirt? Top this look off with a colorful woven clutch and be ready for whatever Friday night brings.
