In today’s ever-changing fashion environment, keeping on top of trends can be difficult. It seems that by the time you finally get on top of the new “in” style, it suddenly is replaced and tossed aside by the next trending “in” item. With the changing of the year and the added pressure to conform to the “new year, new me” slogan here are six items that will be trendy in 2018 but you already have it in your closet from last year.
Instead of doing a closet purge and just donating all of last year’s items to a consignment shop, keep these pieces of clothing and bring them back to life with other 2018 trends.
Denim jeans are a staple of every women’s closet and by now you probably have a good collection of skinny, flare, boot cut, straight leg, boyfriend jeans and maybe even the up incoming trend of the season: baggy denim. The 90’s inspired style is popping up everywhere and can be found in light or dark wash. Pair them with a colorful blouse that is tucked into the waistband or with a white top and sneakers. If you really want to go for the full 90’s look buy a pair of ripped baggy wide leg jeans and cuff the bottoms.

With purple declared the color of the year by Pantone it’s no surprise that lavender is about to make its way into all of our closets. This soft and gentle color is such a pretty hue that it can be worn in so many different ways. The best way being with a pair of jeans that will offer a chic color contrast.
