Maxi skirts

Miniskirts (especially micro-miniskirts) will always have a special place in our hearts, but consider venturing into floor-gathering territory with a chic maxi skirt. These bottoms come in straight, streamlined silhouettes in denim, knit or silk. Combine with platform sandals or high boots.

PJs as fashion

Any trend that lets you get away with wearing pajamas all day is a trend we can get behind. Celebrities have been showing a lot of love for slip dresses lately. Case in point: Kendall Jenner’s see-through dress, Florence Pugh’s tulle and silk Rodarte, and Hailey Bieber, who went straight for a nightgown at Doja Cat’s birthday party, so apparently nightgowns aren’t just for catching extra stylish zzz’s anymore. Corset tops with romantic lace details can also be incorporated into your look – balance out the softer pieces with heavier fabrics such as chunky knits or 100% cotton denim.
