Surplice Tops

Surplice tops might just replace button-downs, because they can easily be made professional or sexy. Plus, the way the fabric drapes in the front perfectly accentuates feminine curves.

Block Heels

Women are already tiring of sky-high stilettos, so we bet that the block heel trend of late will be favored in the future. Block heels are comfortable, chic, and incredibly versatile. They’re already a classic in our minds!

Patched Denim Jackets

Regular old denim jackets don't have anything on patched denim jackets! This eclectic update on a timeless piece allows the wearer to fully customize their jacket to fit their own unique taste, which is something that won’t ever go out of style.

Satin Sneakers

Sneakers are having quite a moment right now, so it’s difficult to pick one style that will stand out for years to come. Yet, we’d have to go with the satin versions. This trend is just kicking off, but it brings a sense of refinement to a shoe that is usually seen as casual.

High Neck Jumpsuits

Rompers aren’t going to stick around much longer, but the jumpsuit just might! This style is a more thoughtful, professional take on the romper. Particularly when you add the high neck, this piece can easily be worn from day to evening.

Faux Suede Moto Jackets

Leather moto jackets will always be a classic, but faux suede moto jackets just might edge them out as the favorite in a few years. This intriguing texture melded with a traditional silhouette and coupled with some metallic hardware is sure to be a hit for years to come!

D'Orsay Flats

D’Orsay flats aren’t your run-of-the-mill flats. These flawless shoes cover your toe and heel, but leave the middle of your foot exposed. This makes for an incredibly sexy look, which could put heels out of business in the future.

One Piece Swimsuits

Retro one piece swimsuits from 30 years ago have nothing on the one piece swimsuits of today! We now have backless, high neck, and mesh cutout versions, just to name a few. They provide the perfect balance of sexy and modest, so it's no wonder this trend will be sticking around.

Chelsea Boots

The ankle boot is an all-around classic, but the modern Chelsea boot is going to be the one style that has some serious staying power. This shoe is low-key and can be paired with anything from a summer dress to a pair of jogger sweatpants.

Statement Sleeves

Although a little impractical, you have to admit that statement sleeves are jaw-dropping! For this reason alone, they will likely be the next corset: not something you’d wear everyday, but beautiful enough to suffer in for an evening.

Reinvented Mom Jeans

Mom jeans of the '90s were iconic but not exactly flattering. We think that today's version has a fit that has been perfected, so this trend is sure to remain on the radar for eternity!

Pleated Midi Skirts

Pleated midi skirts were one of the biggest holiday trends of 2016, but we think this universally flattering style will definitely still be worn in 20 years. It's modest, flirty, and can be paired with crop tops, blazers, or button-downs. It's on its way to becoming a closet staple!
