Trends emerge at the speed of light these days, so to keep you up to date on what the fashion crowd is wearing and posting about, we're launching a new series that highlights all the It pieces currently flooding our Instagram feeds. Each month, we'll walk you through the items that have swiftly made the rounds on Instagram, earning them It status.
They say three's a crowd, right? Well, in the world of fashion Instagram, three people are enough to constitute a veritable trend—er, micro-trend, if you want to get technical. When an item pops up on our feeds once, we double-tap. When it shows up twice, we make a mental note of it. And by the third, fourth, and fifth time we spot the same bag, shoe, or clothing item on the fashion insiders we love to follow, we take it upon ourselves to report on the emerging trend.
With that in mind, I've curated a selection of the top fashion trends on Instagram I've spotted already this month—and we're only halfway through March. From Ganni's leather fringe jacket singlehandedly ensuring the Western trend keeps going strong to the newest Jacquemus It bag in town that's been making the rounds in Paris, once you discover each of these six items, you can basically call yourself an insider. Keep reading to discover the defining pieces of the month and shop similar styles, too.
Ganni Fringe Leather Jacket
Oh, Ganni. You always know how to tempt a fashion person with your quirky-cool pieces. This time around, the Ganni item that's in everyone's shopping carts comes in the form of a luxe leather fringe shacket that nods to the Western trend in such a subtle yet elevated way. We've already spotted the jacket on editors, buyers, and designers from London to Lagos and back again.
Miu Miu Mary Jane Pumps
Are you ready for this one? Mary Janes are the dark horse of shoe trends this spring, mostly due to the beautiful Miu Miu pair we spotted all over the street during Paris Fashion Week. With a square toe, block heel, and single crystal embellishment, they embody so much of what's cool in fashion right now.
Jacquemus Le Chiquito Bag
It will be a noteworthy day when Jacquemus ceases to design bags that compete to be ever more microscopic. We know—you can't possibly carry everything in a bag designed to hold a whisper, so once you've read through this edit, let me simply refer you to this story: Purse So Tiny You Need a Backup Tote Bag? Same.
Prada Knee-High Mesh Socks
Bags and shoes will always be trending, no matter the season, style, or brand. But this feels breaking: knee-high socks! Mesh Prada logo-emblazoned ones at that. Remember 10 slides ago when I said Mary Janes are coming back around? Well, this is how the Insta set is styling them.
Maggie Marilyn Dress
Cargo pants are cool and all, but Maggie Marilyn's pocketed minidress feels like the freshest take on the utility trend of them all. With a name like Do Whatever It Takes Dress and an offering of fun colors like hot pink and pool blue, there's nothing not to love—and, well, Instagram is in total agreement.
Ratio et Motus Lady Tote
Classic, structured top-handle bags are completely dominating the scene currently, and fashion's insider set is swooning hard over the perfect Lady Satchels from emerging bag brand Ratio et Motus. The shape feels at once vintage and completely new.
