To keep up with the trends, we’ve rounded up 5 versatile and fashionable pieces for your IRL moments this year. Have an awesome time curating your ‘fits and meeting your besties!

You can never go wrong with a monochromatic denim outfit

Modernizing past trends has been a trend in itself, and we’re glad denim is a classic that always finds its way back home — our closets. Back in the 1960s, no outfit screams “I’m cool” more than a denim outfit, so much so that it became a staple during the 1970s and 1980s. In this day and age, denim is basically seen everywhere such as in skirts, button-down shirts, and dresses.

Aside from that, another favorite trend that women can’t stop putting on is monochromatic attire. With just one color for the entire outfit, this gives off a simple yet classy look that sure is a head-turner. Matching your top with your bottom to coordinate the hues allows you to dress up in a snap.

Marrying these two trends together, a denim-on-denim monochromatic ensemble is certainly a combination you shouldn’t miss out on because it presents a fun and fashion-forward look. We highly recommend you get your entire OOTD from Stradivarius. Complete your denim set with their fitted Denim Bustier Top that has a cute sweetheart neckline and their high waist Stretch Denim Midi Skirt.

Slay the day by putting on a dressy blazer

Who says blazers are only for 9-5 meetings and corporate events? Even on simple coffee runs and lunch dates with your squad, a blazer elevates your outfit and makes it a lot put together. Indeed, the blazer trend is ruling the year and is definitely here to stay for good, and we’re digging it!

If you’re on the lookout for a comfortable blazer for your everyday use, we can vouch for the ForMe REFORME Adjustable Sleeve Blazer. It’s composed of recycled polyester-linen rayon and is definitely a breathable piece of outerwear. What we love the most about it is that its sleeves are adjustable, giving you the freedom to wear it any way you like.

Style the versatile pleated wide pants in multiple ways

Looking for a piece that suits well for dressy events, office days, and casual day-to-day errands? Say no more, because a pair of pleated wide pants is exactly what you’re in search of. This minimalist, elegant silhouette is where cozy meets sophistication as its effortlessly expensive-looking style does not compromise comfort.

For a fashionista-approved Pleated Wide Pants, make your way to Uniqlo (and we mean now!). This flattering pair is certainly a wardrobe staple as it easily styles up or down and comes with an elastic waistband that allows you to flaunt your sleek waistline even after a heavy meal.

That’s not all — it’s also wrinkle-resistant which means that no creases will be formed and that you’ll always be ready to take snaps for the ‘gram.

Get ready to shine with a sequined cropped top

Ready to have all eyes on you? Well, a sequined piece is just the right clothing for you! Yes, a sequined fabric is not just for grand festivities or sparkly events, but it also works well for a casual fit as long as you balance it out with a basic bottom.

Get that glimmer glow today by heading to an H&M branch near you and snapping up their Sequined Cropped Top. This light purple version gives you the right amount of color, ideal for your next girls’ night out while its sleeveless cut allows you to move as freely as you want.

Opt for a cute yet stylish look with a printed short sleeve mini dress

Whether it’s for a quick summer getaway or a day at the park, an adorable printed dress is always a good closet staple. Printed and patterned outfits have been a cyclical trend wherein the designs go in and out of trend easily.

However, some classic and common prints have withstood the test of time: polka dots, florals, and stripes.

To refresh your wardrobe capsule and fill them up with prints, start by visiting a Bershka store and bringing home their Printed Short Sleeve Mini Dress with Sweetheart Neckline. With its light green color and small floral prints, this piece screams youthful energy like no other.

On top of that, it exudes a sweet, girl-next-door look which is a great fit for sponty date nights or window shopping with the besties.
