When you think of runway trends, you often assume they’re not wearable in real life. This year’s style crazes, however, are all about remixed classics: graphic prints, vintage silhouettes, crisp sportswear, and boho frocks. Translation: They’re totally wearable! Plus, we’ve got a good feeling that these pieces may just be hiding in your (or your mom’s) closet. Take a look at our outfit suggestions so you can start wearing this year’s hottest fashion trends.
Gingham prints are not exclusive to picnic mats, tablecloths, and uniforms. Classic trousers, rugged jeans, and quirky skirts now feature this preppy print—giving it a modern boost.

Forever 21 is available at SM North, SM Megamall, SM Aura, SM Makati, and SM Southmall.
The loose silhouettes from the ’70s are back. Billowy fabrics tend to make you look wider, so enhance your figure by tucking in your tops and add height with platform sandals.
