Speaking of the trends that will be huge this season, we simply mustn’t skip the omnipresent animal prints. These have been loved by everyone over the last few decades, and you know what? They are still going strong these days, which confirms their dominance in the fashion industry. Apart from the leopard print, which is probably the most popular one among the fashionistas, there are also cheetah, zebra, tiger, and even giraffe prints people absolutely adore. So, if you’re a fan of statement pieces that will spice up even the most ordinary outfit, we should say that getting a stylish coat that features your favorite animal print is a huge must. In order to make it stand out more, just go for an all-black combo and you’ll do a great job!

Another hot piece a lot of ladies enjoy wearing is a trendy leather dress, which has quickly become a wardrobe staple for a good reason. First of all, it’s a true statement piece that was frequently spotted both on and off the runway, which is a good enough reason for you to take it into consideration. It’s also important to mention that faux leather is an absolute winner this season, as a large number of brands and designers have switched to eco-friendly and sustainable fashion. This means that no animals were harmed in the process of manufacturing, so be sure to support such brands for the better future of the industry. As for the preferred style, you can pick a leather dress according to your own preferences – starting from its length. Apart from mini and midi ones, there are also bold ankle-length leather dresses for the bravest ones out there. No matter which style you’ll go for, we’re sure that you’ll look smokin’ hot in such a dress this December!
Tweed is making a huge comeback…

On the other hand, we must say that tweed is making a huge comeback this year, too. It’s a classic fabric that has become known worldwide thanks to Coco Chanel; however, it didn’t actually originate from her fashion house. In fact, it dates back to 18th century, when Scottish weavers decided to create a dense fabric perfect for outerwear. Of course, tweed has slightly changed over the years, and it gradually became a symbol of elegance and class – especially in a form of a classic jacket in pastel colors. The good thing about it is the fact that you can combine it with literally anything you want – even a pair of jeans and a black T-shirt. You can also buy gorgeous women’s dresses and match them with a fabulous tweed jacket, which is a great way to come up with a timeless outfit that’s contemporary at the same time. Possibilities are truly infinite with this one!
… As well as ravishing pleats

Last but certainly not least, pleats are also a huge trend in the fashion industry nowadays, so try not to skip them this December. Needless to say, these are usually spotted on mini, midi, and maxi skirts, as well as on feminine dresses and even wide-leg trousers. These are kicking their way into this season’s shopping basket, so don’t ignore this trend and incorporate pleats into your everyday outfits. You should know that these are quite versatile, as you can combine them with literally anything you want – a chunky-knit sweater, a delicate blouse, or an ordinary white T-shirt that features a graphic print. The same goes for footwear, since pleats can be flawlessly matched with either flats or sky-high heels. Even ankle booties are more than welcome, so be bold and you’ll nail your combos like a true fashionista!
As you can see, there are a lot of style essentials you should take into consideration this December, and these four are undoubtedly the hottest ones. All you have to do is to stick to our tips and guidelines and you’ll perfect your personal style while keeping up with the latest fashion trends at the same time!
