winter style trends

BAF Weekly IT List from top left: small top handle bag (see review here) / Chanel spring nail polish / Dior spring top coat / cozy puffer jacket (avl in many colors!) / charcoal classic cut jeans / faux fur boots (on major sale and avl in many colors!) / soft hobo bag /

‘Tis the season to stay cozy! This cozy puffer jacket is available in several colors, and selling quickly. I have one in vegan leather, but the fabric version is equally fabulous and cozy; plus, it costs less. Love that!

If your toes are cold, you need warmer footwear! These faux fur boots are on major sale, plus, they are cozy, comfortable, and I can walk a lot in them. Love!

My handbag trend report for 2022 is coming up, and two trends you will find on it are hobo bags and small or mini bags. Plus, top handle bags are hot too. These two handbags are right on trend for the new year, and they are selling quickly since they are already popular on the streets. Love them!

February starts next week, and it is the month to wear red! Red is lucky for Lunar New Year, which occurs on February 1, 2022. Plus, National Wear Red Day is on February 4. We wear red on the 4th to raise awareness about heart health. Check out my post about it here. In addition to Lunar New Year, and heart health, Valentine’s Day is a fun day to wear red and/or pink. I plan on wearing a red bag since I don’t own very much red. Hopefully that will make my bank account lucky in the new lunar new year!

Also in February, more virtual New York Fashion Week shows, which you can catch on NYFW.com. I will be covering the shows from home again this season. They will showcase Fall/Winter 2022/23. Time is moving quickly! Do you feel that too?

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for a fabulous February!

BAF Weekly IT List from top left: periwinkle cardigan sweater (on major sale!) / Dior cruise nail polish / Dior spring top coat / Chanel spring nail polish / Dior cruise nail polish / small red hobo bag / faux leather pants / structured hobo bag (caramel color on sale) / small convertible handbag / black pouch bag / lug sole loafers / lug sole boots /

Winter is in full swing, and we are all starting to think about spring trends we can rock now; such as nail polish and hobo bags. These are easy ways to update our cold weather looks with a little touch of sunshine. Love that!

If you haven’t invested in a pair of leather, or faux leather pants yet, what are you waiting for? This is a huge trend which started last year, and designers are still loving the look well into 2022. Be careful when shopping for faux leather, as some types can look plasticky. If you love this trend, it’s worth spending a little bit more in order to ensure getting smooth and non-plastic-looking faux leather. The pair I own look amazing in person and are very soft to the touch; I highly recommend them!

Looking for a new handbag in 2022? I am working on my annual handbag trends article which will post later this month. In the meantime, think hobos, bucket bags, top handle lady bags, mini bags, and the continuation of the pouch. Leather is going to be soft, polished, or stamped exotic. Handbags are getting smaller with a more understated footprint. More details later this month!

Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for a review of the hottest emerging IT bag of 2022! Here is a hint; it has been spotted on a few real housewives in Salt Lake City, Beverly Hills, and Orange County as well as a-list celebrities and trend setters. It’s small, structured, and fabulous. Can you guess?

winter 2022 style trends

BAF Weekly IT List from top left: periwinkle sweater (on major sale!) / spring Chanel nail polish / Dior cruise nail polish / G buckle belt / black puff sleeve top (on sale!) / lug sole boots (water resistant!) / small convertible handbag / structured hobo bag (caramel color on sale only) / faux fur boots (on major sale!) /

The winter sales are heating up! There are so many great deals on hot winter items right now. This periwinkle sweater, which happens to be in the color of the year, is on major sale, and so is this comfy yet fashionable puff sleeve top. Love these faux fur boots which come in several colors: also on sale. My structured hobo is a hot IT bag, but you can snap up my caramel color on sale. Love this!

Also trending this week-warm weather nail colors! The easiest way to freshen up winter, and start thinking about warmer weather, is with nail polish. It’s an under $50 way of adding a little sunshine to your everyday look. Shoppers are loving Dior’s cruise nail polish and Chanel’s spring nail colors. Stay tuned! Dior’s spring collection is hitting the blog in a few days. It’s fabulous.
