6 Trends That Will Be Huge This April
Warmer temps, floral dresses and rediscovering your ankles. We love spring. But what’s trending? We’re glad you asked!
April showers bring…plastic shoes? The PVC trend has finally gone mainstream with the proliferation of clear vinyl footwear, bags and coats in nearly every ready-to-wear collection this season. Want to try the look without breaking the bank? Check out this Zara bag and these strappy Steve Madden sandals.
You’ve heard of cannabis-infused body oils and olive oil with THC? The newest trend in pot-filled products is Cannabidiol, or CBD, which is another chemical compound found in marijuana. It’s known to relax, but without the high- and munchies-causing effects of THC. This spring, we’re seeing it in tons of new sweet-tooth iterations, like chocolate, gumdrops and even cocktails.
Power greens? So two years ago. The newest health food craze comes in the form of stress-busting adaptogens, or “super herbs” like shiitake mushrooms, ginseng and maca, which purportedly increase calm feelings, regulate hormones and boost energy. Look for them in smoothies and lattes, and as the 2018 answer to acai and matcha.
Social Media Detoxes
Snapchat’s new update, Facebook’s giant #fail: Have the recent social media PR nightmares got you down? You're not alone. This year, high-profile folks like royal-to-be Meghan Markle and Call Me by Your Name actor Armie Hammer have publicly quit their social media accounts in an effort to be more present, mindful and to live in the moment. (Well, in Markle’s case it may have been a Kensington Palace decree.) Expect your friends to follow suit. (Ya know, until they absolutely have to post a pic of their adaptogen smoothie, of course…)
