Okay ladies, fanny packs were a thing in the 90s and painted our eyes through Jared Leto’s retro style in 2016. While fanny packs are consciously making a comeback, you can update your handbag game with the fanny pack’s cousin, the belted bag. Belted bags are a stimulating way to snatch your waist because it has the same effect as a belt. I believe this will be a new staple for your accessory bundle.

Send me back to the 70s! Well not really because flare pants are a tone down look from the bell bottom pants our ancestors used to rock. Kick it up a notch and ditched the leggings and denim for a moment. Wide-leg trousers is the secret to balancing your shape.

Ladies are you busty with small hips? Wear wide-leg pants, it’s an effective way to create an even shape to your figure. Typically, these trousers are high-waist, so I suggest you wear this look with a light-long sleeve cropped top and you’ll be on the “One to Watch” list.

So, 2017 was all about off-the shoulder tops and ruffled shirts but this year sleeveless blouses gives us a new way to show some skin. Like the vibes a tank top gives, try sprucing up your work-wear attire with a button-down sleeveless top. Maybe a sleeveless top is too much for your job environment? Try a sleeveless duster. The modern cardigan will have you rocking the sleeveless trend effectively by taking a casual blouse to a sophisticated staple.

Paris Hilton gave us over-sized ‘sunnies’ but the aviator style is back. The retro shade is making a comeback in various colors depicting the style of the 30s with a modern take of neon colors and millennial pink! I say ditch the ordinary black for a muted gray tone or a dynamic royal blue. I like aviator sunglasses because it has a masculine appeal, which is always edgy on a woman.

Ditch the mini backpacks and cross-body bags. Ladies, box clutches add shape and edge to your silhouette, especially worn with a casual outfit. I know, you’re thinking isn’t a clutch for formal or night-time attire? Not necessarily. Style is all about pairing the unconventional with the typical. The elegance of the a box clutch carried with a casual outfit creates a feminine and rough look; thus, giving you sex appeal, classy and edge all in one.
