With our CHIC STUDIOS New Year’s Eve Style Guide and post on how to throw the perfect New Year’s bash, there’s no doubt that you rang in 2013 fabulously! The glitzy holiday may be over, but it’s no excuse to lose your fashion-forward motivations now! Make sure to stay chic and take note of the 5 huge trends of this season.


This winter, velvet has made a comeback! The soft-feeling fabric has always been associated with a rich and luxurious appearance. It has been seen on countless celebs, in designer collections and even on Miss Universe winner, Olivia Culpo, when she won the pageant! If you’re petite, velvet can make you appear bulky. Don’t let that make you avoid this sumptuous trend- opt for velvet accents or accessories instead.

Now this is a trend we love for post-holiday season. Hide your gingerbread house and pie filled tummies with a huge sweater! I’m not talking about stepping out in an oversized sweater with sweatpants and scrunchies- this cozy staple can look fashion-forward and chic. Balance the bulk of heavy knits with slim or short bottoms, like skinny jeans, leather leggings or a mini skirt. Add some glam shoes and costume jewelry and you’re good to go!

3.    24K Gold Lips

If you can’t afford diamonds, go for the gold! Gold lips are hot this season- A gold gloss can be worn alone or over a favorite lipstick to create a warm and shimmery effect. The metallic color will make you feel like a million bucks and add instant femininity, sparkle and glamor to your face.

4.    Winter White

The snow may start to melt soon, but that shouldn’t stop you from shying away from this winter trend. Forget the outdated “you can’t wear white after Labor Day” cliché fashion rule. The winter white trend is your friend and will make you look white hot. This trend is embracing the color of the snowy season! Celebrities like Miranda Kerr and J. Lo have been spotted in all white outfits.

The idea of purple hair may seem a little silly and a risk only to be taken on Halloween, but it is indeed a new trend! Purple hair comes in many shades, such as lavender, lilac and even magenta. Many starts have dared to rock it, but do you? Katy Perry, Kelly Osbourne and Azealia Banks have all embraced it, while some other stars, like Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato, have dip-dyed, ombred and streaked their hair in this pastel color. Don’t want to commit to a crazy hue? Use hair chalk or temporary dye for a not-so-permanent ‘do!
