The Pop of Puff Sleeve
It’s a puff-sleeve world, and we’re just living in it. Billowing peasant-style blouses and smocked sleeves are here to stay.
The Tie-Dye Touch
Long after the summer of love, tie-dye has captured our attention. We’ve even embraced it in the least suspecting wardrobe category: cold-weather knitwear.

The Puffer Jacket
At first, the sporty puffer-jacket trend took the fashion set by surprise. Puffers were once regulated to only the coldest days of the year and only when we really needed them.

The Padded Headband
The headband craze has come and gone several times (remember 2007’s frenzy fueled by Gossip Girl 1.0), and it seems here to stay. Thanks in part to Miuccia Prada, the puffy headband was the must-have party accessory for the 2018 holiday season, and it was cemented as a forever staple whenstunned in a bright red Prada version at the 2021 presidential inauguration.
