2. Braid your Hair

Braid your Hair

The braid was a huge hit in 2014 and it looks like it is extending its stay. It is not just for the kids - though they absolutely love it, often referring to Elsa and Anna - we Moms can wear it too! And there are different ways to wear it - from the classic style, to the relaxed and loosened-up version, or an elegant low bun or chignon. Try the fishtail too, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to do!

For a sleek clean look, use mousse when styling your hair.

3. For your nails: Nude

For your nails: Nude

Bare nails with a hint of detail were everywhere on the runways. They’re fun and really easy to DIY! If nail art isn’t your thing though, no worries -- stick to a neutral nail color like a soft pastel pink which will also be big in 2016.

4. Your wardrobe: the Shirtdress

Your wardrobe: the Shirtdress

The shirtdress is better than ever. You can never go wrong with the classic shape, but you’ll find the shirtdress in different interesting textures, prints and lengths in 2015 so there's sure to be one to suit each and everyone’s style. Styling tip: pick a roomy shirtdress and wear a belt to accentuate the waist for a relaxed silhouette.

5. Your wardrobe: Black & White

Your wardrobe: Black & White

We’ve seen the monochromatic trend over and over again and we love it because it is so easy to wear. Keep an eye for bold or graphic prints to keep things fresh and interesting. You may also wear pieces in contrasting prints or find identical prints in negative and positive combinations. You can also do a uniform print from top to bottom.

6. Your wardrobe: Culottes

Your wardrobe: Culottes

The culottes trend appeared in 2014 and the style is sticking around with more options to take you from work to the weekend, possibly making it a wardrobe staple in 2015. From tailored cuts to lightweight fabrics to bold prints and details, the culottes is hitting mainstream this year.
