5 Trends You Haven't Tried Yet (But Should)

With the start of a new year and new resolutions, it’s time for a new look. We’re not talking anything drastic – just a quick wardrobe update. It’s time to break out of our skinny jeans and flat boots rut and try something a little bit trendier. But don’t worry, we’re here to offer a few style swaps to help you out:

If you’re closet’s full of skinny jeans, try…skinny cargo pants:

Admit it, you’re addicted to your skinny jeans. With boots, flats, and heels, skinny jeans like these J Brand 11” Ankle Jeans ($168) are your essential go-to pants. So try a pair of these Citizens of Humanity Hope Cargo Pants ($174) which are still skinny, yet look way cooler than regular denim.

If you love cardigans, try…the cocoon sweater:


This one is a toughie for us: the cardigan. We love our cardigans – boyfriend, fitted, cashmere – so it’s hard for us to let this go. Cardigans are a must-have, like this Vanessa Bruno Cotton Jersey Cardigan ($130), but we dare you to give the cocoon sweater a chance. These oversized stylish ‘blankets-with-sleeves’ hide everything while being totally cozy (and office appropriate). We suggest this Rachel Zoe favorite, the Alternative Cocoon Wrap ($78).

If you love flat black boots, try….lace up booties:


Instead of your usual flat boots, like these Marc Fisher Aggi Boots ($76, down from $169), we decided to go with something a little dressier. Even with your most casual outfits, a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Veronica Lace Up Booties ($130.20, down from $186) will make you feel put together and ready to go–and they’re just as low-maintenance.

If you’re a nail polish fiend…try the 14 day polish:


If you pick and chip at your nails, your manicure probably isn’t so hot after a few days even if you have a gorgeous color like Sugar Daddy by Essie ($8). So pick a new kind of polish – the CND Shiny Top Coat ($8.50) makes it last for 2 weeks – great for vacations and everyday wear. PS – Jason Wu is creating his own line of them for spring, too (!)

If you’re addicted to the flat iron, try this serum:


We hate to break it to you, but stick straight hair is a thing of the past. It’s time to let go of our CHI Flat Iron ($159.95) and go natrual. Try a smoothing leave-in conditioner like Liquid Keratin Leave In Conditioner ($27) and enjoy sleek strands with more body and waves.
