The first month of the year is close to wrapping up and it has been a busy month of headlines and events including the colossal snow storm that hit the east coast. It was certainly the right time to dig out the heavy duty outerwear, the fun faux fur and of course, the big cozy sweaters. If you follow the blog by email (enter your email on the right side bar for alerts) or through any of our social media outlets, then you know January was a big month for One Style at a Time. That’s right we launched the first blog monthly newsletter. If you haven’t subscribed yet, then make sure you do so here. The newsletter is meant to provide tons of fashion information that you won’t find on the blog including lots of exclusive content that you won’t want to miss!

Moving on to the hot topic at hand. OK, so what styles are making waves in fashion these days? Well there are quite a few, but our top three favorite seem to have one thing in common, VOLUME. During the busy and cold winter days, fashionistas have to use layers to get creative without compromising great style. Coming in at number one is the draped cardigan. This style we have seen for quite some time but it is definitely a favorite and now they come in long and cropped shorter versions, printed or solids. They are such a fabulous addition to your fall/winter look regardless of height or shape. A bonus with this cardigan is that you can use it for fall/winter and spring. Who doesn’t love a piece of garment that can easily transition within different seasons. Talk about cozy, comfortable and chic right? Next on the list is the metallic pleated skirt. Sure, pleats are nothing new but when you add a bit of shine to this fabric, it does have more of a luxe and dressed up look to it. The third hot trend we are excited about is the belle sleeve. What is more elegant than a sleeve, now if you add a bit of volume that automatically gives an outfit an extra style boost. You may have seen the bell sleeves in tops, tunics and dresses and they all work from day to night. It’s a great fashion statement on its own. There you have it ladies, our three top three favorite trends right now. We always love hearing from our One Style at a Time fashion squad so tell us, which of these three trends do you favor?
