Boyfriend Jeans: This menswear-inspired trend has been hot since 2009 when actress Katie Holmes stepped out in what appeared to be a pair of jeans straight from her now ex-husband’s closet. Often distressed, loose and cuffed at the bottom, this trend provides comfort as well as a chic style for any woman.
How To Style: Try pairing these loose-fitting bottoms with a tight (white or striped) cotton t-shirt, and some pointed flats for a casual look or some pointed strappy sandals and a plain blouse for an evening look. Keep the attention on your jeans by keeping all other clothes simple, and keep accessories to a minimum. You can mix and match these two ideas like Rihanna and Miley did; with a tight tee and pointed heels or mix it up the other way like how Miranda Kerr paired hers with a simple blouse but casual sneakers.

Body Chains: You can count on seeing this trend this summer whether you’re at the beach or at the mall! This simple metal chain draped across the body provides the perfect amount of bling to any outfit. Whether you pair it with a bikini like Rihanna and Candice, or under a crop top like Miley Cyrus, be sure to try out this fun trend this summer!
How to Style: Try a bold look by pairing a gold body chain under a white croptop and white high-waisted jeans. For a simpler look, simply pair it with some denim shorts and a black crop, or even with a simple bikini.
