I'm an Editor, and I'm Still Copying These Trends From Bloggers

As editors, we’re constantly trying to get ahead of trends and be the first to know about, share, and test-drive them because well, that’s what our jobs call for. However, even we can get beat to the punch sometimes—especially by bloggers. After all, they’re pretty much doing a version of the same thing, so it’s no surprise their Instagrams are some of the first places you’ll often find a budding fad. They’re especially skilled at finding (or even starting) those more under-the-radar ones that just feel cooler than what’s mainstream at the moment. On that note, today I thought I’d share some of the spring- and summer-ready, as well as highly specific, trends I’ve been seeing on some of my favorite influencers lately and can’t help but want to copy. To see what they are and, of course, shop them, simply continue on below.

Animal-Print Skirts

I don’t think I can scroll through Instagram without seeing one, and I’m officially obsessed.


Clear Beaded Bags

There’s the clear bag, the beaded bag, and now there’s the clear beaded bag.


Smocked Tube Tops

Whether you wear one on its own or layered, I think this will turn out to be one of the season’s most practical buys.

I love the shell trend so much. From earrings to necklaces, it just makes me smile.


Colored Denim-on-Denim Looks

Skip the traditional blue Canadian Tuxedo and opt for something vibrant this season.


Saddle Bag Redux

Dior may not have even started reselling it yet, but the saddle bag’s recent runway return has everyone wearing them again.


Short Suits

Name a cuter warm weather outfit idea… I’ll wait.


Pretty Cargo Pants

I love a good utility piece.


Bathing Suits and Belts

Our managing editor, @mscanga, is already taking this one to the beach.


Springy Sequins

No longer reserved for the holidays, sequins are having a big moment this warm-weather season.


For more trends I’m loving, look no further than these swimsuits and these out-there shoes.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
