Suede Fringe Jacket
Leather jackets and blazers give a defining look to our outfits. This time why not try a bomber jacket, its a casual, sporty jacket, and goes with just about anything. The fringe jackets are also very much in today. They look super chic and classy. A leather fringe or a sequin fringe jacket both look classy.
Trend #11: Bold Hair Color
Beautiful Girl
Ombre is one of the biggest hair color trends and it continues to be a hit this year as well, albeit with a more natural look. Don't go for obvious partitions of hair, but subtle sun-kissed locks, and natural gradation of color. If you want to opt for bold colors, then purple, green, or yellow is the color for the season.
Trend #12: The Pinks and the Blues
Beautiful Girl
Yes, pastels are becoming the much sought-after hair color. A lot of celebrities are flaunting pink, soft purple, tinge of blue, and hues of gray. Give your hair that much-needed makeover with some soft shades of these gorgeous colors. Unfortunately, it is rather difficult for all the dark-haired ladies to get this look right, unless you want to go blonde.
Trend #13: Break the Conventions!

You don't need to wear stilettos every time you wear a dress. A comfy pair of sneakers can do the trick. Flats and sports shoes are making a huge comeback, and you can pair them with your skirts and dresses too. Shoes are much more comfortable and give a sporty look, but if you can't live without your heels, then platform ones are the latest trend.
Trend #14: Color Craziness
Red Handbag White Dress
Bright colors... they can literally cheer you up. But don't become a color bomb, decking yourself head to toe in bright colors. It's all about playing with colors. A red bag will instantly jazz up your monotonous black outfit, and will lend the perfect effect. Try to keep one accessory colorful, and the rest should be subtle.
Trend #15: Choker style
Green Choker
Choker necklaces look absolutely chic. You can wear them on any kind of outfit; go for simple ones for a casual look, and big dressy ones for those special events.
