I'll be the first to admit, heels are my favorite. I love The way they look, the height they give & how perfect they make your calves look; but we all know they aren't the most comfortable shoe option.

We all know the saying- History tends to repeat itself & this rings true not only in life but also with fashion. Fashion trends always go in one big circle & it's a fact that if you wait long enough all trends will come back in style. As an 80's baby I only remember culottes because I had two older sisters who kept up with the latest styles & by the time I was old enough to pick out my own clothes the trend had come & gone. But... 25 years later the culotte has made a comeback, along with some other throwback trends that have creeped back into your favorite stores & runways. Here's a list of four trends that you thought were gone for good but are back in style...

STATEMENT PIECE- An item in your wardrobe that gives a fashionable shock value worthy of a page in Vogue, In Style or Harper's Bazaar. I like to say a statement piece is anything you wear in your wardrobe that gets you constant compliments & the thing you can throw on with an otherwise boring outfit & totally transform it. A perfect example is this ruffle, sheer off the shoulder top I snagged from a vintage store recently. I wore it with some regular cropped jeans & my favorite sunnies & it automatically took my outfit to a new level.
Statement pieces can be clothes or accessories & it’s important to have a few sprinkled into your wardrobe for those days when you need that extra piece to add more style to a boring outfit.
Need some statement pieces ideas? I’m giving you 8 to add to your wardrobe that will not only boost your style but also have all your friends asking “where did you get that”. Check out the list below…
