Where do trends originate? There’s really no single source. But with the start of a new season, it’s a great time to hit reset and take a look at what’s new. Whether you’re a shopper looking to refresh your wardrobe, or a designer looking for some insight into what your customers may be into, you can take the latest trends and make them all your own. Taking inspiration from the runways, magazines and even art, here’s what’s currently trending in the world of style:

PLAID/GINGHAM
The 90’s are back. Grungy plaid looks and prominent gingham are the patterns to rock.

BLACK AND WHITE
It’s an oldie but goodie. Opt for a head to toe, monochromatic or statement print look that come in these classic colors. You can find some great black and white graphic tee collections from brands like LikeLife and Domestic Product, and some trippy black and white statement print pieces from Set 4 Lyfe.

ROMPERS
One-pieces weren’t just meant for bathing suits. The single garment piece that combines a top and bottom is a convenient, comfortable outfit that can be dressed up or down.

CAMO/MILITARY GREEN
Camo and military green have made a comeback – and you know it has when Rihanna rocked it head-to-toe this spring. Bring a little street vibe to your outfits with this trend.

SPORTSWEAR
Couture, move aside! Mesh was all over the 2015 runways and Absurdity Clothing's collection in a bold move towards sportswear and more athletic pieces – this trend ain’t meshin around. 

STRIPES
Designers have been mixing around the placement of stripes so don’t just think linearly! They’re back and cool again.

ONE-PIECES
Cut-outs, silhouettes, skirted- there are tons of ways to make the bikini’s less revealing counterpart super chic for the hot months ahead. Also, don't forget the one-pieces warm twin, the onesie! OneZip Wear has you covered on those.

ROUND GLASSES/METALLIC LENSES
Shiny, colorful lenses used with or without the round style are everywhere.

DENIM
It seems like the take on denim is endless. This summer, denim fringed short shorts or any vintage style is golden.

PATCHWORK
If you can’t decide on just one denim hue, try the patchwork trend with a jean jacket or pants for an artsy look.

FLORAL/BIG PRINTS
Using a top or bottom as a solid floral element goes hand-in-hand with the big repeated prints. Big, loud pieces work best.

T-SHIRT DRESSES
Strappy sandals go well with the long shirt that serves as a dress.

ANIMAL PRINT
Powerful and unique prints go beyond classic leopard, with creatures as quirky as metallic jellyfish and seahorses gracing the designs of recent runways.

FLOWING MATERIAL
Relax, and go with the flow. Loose pants and drapey fabrics are springing up with the weather these days.
