Finally! One of these Trends Might be the One You’ve Been Waiting For

On the lookout for the newest trend often means looking for like-minded people, whether they are shoppers or designers. Not surprisingly, indie brands are the best source to wish upon for the specific concept you’ve been dying to wear. And we’re very excited to uncover many emerging trends that are finally addressing our own fashion desires—while discovering a few that’s more eye-opening. Are these on your radar, too?


1. Tassel Earrings

Crystal & Parts Earrings

Before discovering these, we haven’t given tassels too much thought. Tassels are just that, right? Wrong! From leather to fine Japanese thread, from antique upholstery to contemporary mix-media styles, from dainty to big earrings (they are in!), tassels are for everyone to make their own preference.

2. Metaphoric Nature

Organism Brooch

Woodland and nature-themed designs have been on the rise for years, and we’re excited to see the designs go beyond flowers, branches and leaves. When flora and fauna are turned into abstract characteristics like ridges, clusters and organic textures, the styles become open for all kinds of interpretation.

3. Portable Habitats

Grassy Tote

Speaking of nature-inspired styles, the other extreme is to get very literal. Grassy lawns are now available on bags, bracelets (complete with clip-on bunny figurines), phone cases, brooches and office desks…… anywhere we feel deprived of plants and animals, we now have a green solution for it!

4. Realistic Pet Replicas

Felt Pet Replica

People love customization—and they love customized pet gifts even more. It blows our mind how realistic these felt pet replicas can be. Besides figurines, people are now also bringing their cats and dogs into temporary tattoos, wallets, electronic accessories and more.

5. Dynasty & Period Robes

Chinese Frog Closure Cardigan

We think the concept of kimono has been a bit overused in fashion—not all robes are kimonos! But its popularity do show that more and more garments inspired by traditional robes in the old East are now inspirations for ready-to-wear items. Dig in and explore the fascinating clothing details in different eras of China and Japan.

6. Dim Sum Jewelry (and Wearable Food)

Dim Sum Necklace

Foodies are proudly wearing their badges of honor with ramen, dim sum, taiyaki, eggs brooches and more. Regardless of reason—it could be for the pure passion for eating or cooking, for spreading happiness (like Camila Valdez’s giant desserts) or awareness (like Mica Gallino’s Foodxury Jewelry)—it is an undeniable trend that matches up with international food trends.

7. Unexpected Geometry

The Drafter’s Necklace

Just when we think we’ve seen it all with geometric jewelry, designers bring more twists to the universe’s universal language. Variations such as single earrings and ear cuffs, plays on jewelry structures, as well as a deeper interpretation of geometric symbols bring these accessories to the next level. The realm of geometric possibilities has yet to be fully explored.
