Fashion is always changing. What was hot last year can be considered passé now. You have to stay on top of trends to know if your fashion choices are hits or misses.

The rapid changes in the fashion industry can be overwhelming to some, but they are exciting to many. If you are always in fashion, you are also getting the chance to try on new looks and experiment with new designs.

Here are a few hot trends that are in fashion now, with some information on the trends they replaced:

Boot-Cut Jeans
Boot-cut, or flared, jeans were all the rage in the 90s, but they fell out of favor as skinny jeans took the spotlight. Not only is there now evidence that wearing skinny jeans can be harmful to your health, but many have forsaken the trend upon realizing that it doesn’t flatter many body types.

Boot-cut jeans are back in style, and we couldn’t be happier about it. These flared jeans are both attractive and comfortable.

Kitten Heels
Stilettos ruled the runways for years, but they are finally making way for more sensible footwear. Kitten heels provide just enough lift for a fashionable look, but they are low enough to be comfortable with extended wear. You can also wear kitten heels to the workplace, making them versatile for day to night wear.

Cage Cuffs
Stacked bangles have been rattling their way through photo shoots and runways for some time now. Thankfully, our clanking days are over. Now, cage cuffs are the accessory of choice. These cuffs have the same look of stacked bangles, but they are held in place by a connecting bar.

Jean Skirts
High fashion doesn’t always look like haute couture. Long, jean skirts have become the fashion in place of tight, mini-skirts. Slip on a pair of sandals and a button-up shirt tied at the waist, and you’ll have a complete outfit that is fit for the pages of Vogue.

Try out some of these new, more comfort-minded fashions for the fall. You’ll love the way you look and feel.
