Unlike the era when everyone sported mini-bags, especially in the evening—sometimes even carrying more than one at a time—the focus is shifting. The emphasis is no longer solely on the ‘cool’ factor, where we often had to settle for a bag that couldn’t even fit a phone inside. Instead, we are seeing a revival of spacious and comfortable bags, ushering in an era where practicality and comfort take centre stage without sacrificing a touch of glamour.

Beyond Bottega Veneta’s Drop: Elevate Your Look With Statement Earrings

Influencers were, and still are, enamoured with bold earrings, possessing the extraordinary ability to enhance any outfit and capture the attention of fashionistas.

The trend gained traction, mainly due to the iconic Bottega Veneta Drop earrings, which numerous other brands subsequently imitated.

While these earrings have basked in the spotlight in recent months, the current trend is diversifying, thanks to a myriad of earring offerings—often in metal and plated in both silver and gold—that are gaining popularity alongside the enduring appeal of the original pair.

After all, choosing a statement piece of jewellery can elevate even the simplest outfit, enabling us to stand out from the crowd—a phenomenon often referred to as the ‘power of jewellery.

Don’t Bid Farewell to the Micro-Skirt, But Embrace Long Lengths

While miniskirts continue to be popular among some, a new fashion wave has emerged in the past year: the long skirt, especially in its denim version, worn both high and low-waisted. These skirts can be the perfect garment for any occasion—just pair them with the right top, and you’re good to go.

Long skirts are not only comfortable but also versatile, making them suitable even when temperatures drop significantly. This is in contrast to short versions, which are more popular during the summer, although they can still be found in various warm materials to date.

Nobody Wants to Run on High Stilettos (Anymore): Long Live Kitten Heels

We can say that several of these emerging trends prioritise convenience by providing practicality and comfort while also maintaining a visually appealing aesthetic.

In all honesty, high heels can make us feel insecure and sometimes keep us from fully enjoying certain moments. On the other hand, kitten heels offer unparalleled comfort, enabling us to relish every moment without feeling awkward or uncomfortable.

These shoes are incredibly versatile, striking the perfect balance between the elegance of heels and the comfort of flats, which is also why we love them so much. If you’re bold and a true fashion enthusiast, you can even pair them with ankle socks or chic knee-highs to add an extra flair to your outfit.
