Whether you need new personal accessories, you’re redecorating your home or office, or you just want to spice up your Instagram feed, there are plenty of simple but effective fashion and design trends you’ll be sure to fall for in the process. Just a little pop of a trendy color or pattern in your space can make all the difference in the way you feel while you’re there. Here are some of our favorite material trends to watch for.
This stylish metal has been all the rage for a while, but it’s definitely not going anywhere anytime soon. It has the glamour of gold, but the softness and warmth of the pinky tones make it feel more classy and inviting. Rose gold accessories are a great way to modernize a classic outfit or a room with rustic decor without completely clashing. Some of our favorite rose gold items include jewelry, headphones, coasters, and vases.
This material has always been associated with wealth and style, so it’s no surprise that trendsetters over the past year or so have been loving it. Bright white marble is great for a sleek, clean look, while darker pieces are more moody and edgy. Can’t afford an entire marble countertop? You can still achieve that look with pieces like marble cutting boards, trays, coasters, and candle holders.
This light and sustainable material has actually been a huge trend for eco-friendly home decorators, who have been using it in floors and walls to create a wood-like look that’s more gentle on the planet. It’s also a great choice for accessories – many headphone companies have actually been incorporating it into their products because it looks sleek and provides great sound quality. It also looks chic and earthy when used in kitchen pieces like cutlery.
Although raffia may evoke thoughts of straw beach hats, it’s quickly making its way into the homes of style icons. Like bamboo, it feels very breezy and earthy, so it works particularly well when paired with light colors. Be on the lookout for raffia chairs, placemats, trays, vases, and more. You’ll also see textures inspired by this in many popular fashion pieces, as it’s been a prominent feature over the past few fashion seasons.
Yes, you read that right – tape is the next big textural style trend. The rise of chic organizational planners has made colorful washi tape incredibly popular, but soon we’ll start to see decorators use tape for a cheap, quirky, and industrial touch. Printed duct tape can be used to turn an ugly knick-knack into something cute, or you can even be uber-bold and use tape to hang up your posters and calendars for a look that’s so minimalist it’s fashionable.
These are just a few ways to spice up your style with the latest trends. One of the best ways to make over your look is to just be creative and go with the things that you love. Who knows, your favorite pieces could be the next big trend.
