Going Bold

It’s that time of year for wrap-up lists, so prepare to be inundated with everything from the top songs of 2012 to the best informercial products of the past 365 (hello, WaxVac—I kid, I kid.) The top fashion trend coming out of Miami this past winter, according to TJ Maxx and Marshalls: Wearing bold colors, like teal and oxblood. And not only is it our favorite trend, we also love wearing these statement shades on dates. I opted for this lime green sweater (one of my personal favorite brights this season) for a night out with hubby. And because bold colors go a long way, I paired mine with basic black to let the hue shine. The best part of this cardi: It’s linen, so it’s perfect for Miami winters.

Wondering what else Miami gals are sporting this season? TJ Maxx/ Marshalls says when it comes to work, we prefer menswear-inspired outfits. We love Jennifer Aniston’s style, as well as Kate Middleton’s, but when it comes to fashion inspiration, we look to our friends (probably because we have a better chance of accessing their closets as opposed to the former). Wondering what we hate? Paying full price, especially when we know we can get it at these stores for up to 60 percent off. I have a feeling that last trend will be alive and well in 2013, too.
