SS14 Mini-Trends

What is a mini-trend?

A mini-trend is a really popular piece of clothing or an accessory that seems to be cropping up everywhere & stems from a major trend. For example, the revival of scrunchies is a mini-trend which comes from the 90s major trend or running style trainers are a mini-trend which come from the Sport Luxe major trend – Easy!

We’ve had a look through our latest arrivals and have highlighted some of our favourite mini-trends to add to your pay day wishlist…

Did you check the streetstyle shots from fashion month? If you did, no doubt you’re lusting after a pair of hologram shoes already - if not, we can’t stress enough how big these are going to be this season! If you're too scared to brave a bold hologram style, opt for a set of metallic flats instead. Here’s out top 5 >>

SoulCal Bayside Cut Out Shoes

Rock and Rags by Firetrap Point Toe Pumps Converse Glam Platform Trainers

Collar dresses are everywhere at the moment and we can’t get enough of them at USC HQ! It’s a great go to style because they don’t require too many accessories and look great as casual day dresses. Wear one just now by layering on a chunky knit, but come summer these will look really cute with a pair of cut out sandals. Here’s our top 5 >>

Our favourite jewellery trend of the moment is definitely stacking rings, primarily because we’re obsessed with nail art and a set of on-trend stacking rings compliment our manicures perfectly! Layer them all up on one finger or wear them at different heights and spread them out. Go for a simple metallic set to make sure they work well with any nail polish. Here’s the five sets which we have on our wishlist:

At Republic Rope Ring Set
Rock and Rags by Firetrap Zag Triangle Rings
Rock and Rags by Firetrap 3 Pack of Cross Rings
At Republic 4 Pack of Abstract Rings
At Republic Brushed 4 Pack of Rings
