I Just Got Back From NYC and Noticed These 5 Trends Are Literally Everywhere

There's nothing like a trip to New York City to cure a fashion rut, and during my most recent trip to the city, there was certainly no shortage of style inspo. Everywhere I went—downtown, uptown, Brooklyn, and everywhere in between—I saw incredible look after incredible look. Since NYC is often where trends originate, I wasn't surprised to see so many in the wild. I noticed a few repeat offenders, and now I can't stop wearing them, either. From the color of the season to the must-have shoe styles, here are the trends NYC girls are wearing right now.

A pop of color always adds a fun point of interest to an outfit, and the people in NYC are doing so by way of bold sneakers. They're styling low-tops, high-tops, sporty styles, and classic pairs with everyday attire such as denim, dresses, and trousers.

Baggy jeans are the It denim style right now, and I'm here for it. Look for pairs that are wider through the middle like balloon jeans or styles that pool at the base.

I saw so many belts with interesting hardware in New York, so I immediately purchased a few of my own. From studs to statement closures, the unique details on a belt are an easy way to elevate an outfit.

Ballet flats and Mary Janes are here to stay according to the women of NYC. For spring, it's all about styles in unique fabrics such as raffia, satin, mesh, and even denim.

I could hardly walk three blocks without seeing someone wearing butter yellow. This soft, pale hue looks particularly chic when paired with white or denim pieces.
