The world of fashion is always changing, hopping from one style to the next within days or weeks, and with so many micro trends floating around the internet, it can be hard to know what new pieces you should incorporate into your wardrobe.
Whether you are an avid trend-watcher or are looking for ways to refresh your closet with some new styles, there are a few key trends we think fashion fans should look out for. Lifestyle expert Kathy Buccio stopped by the 3rd hour of TODAY to share seven outfits inspired by the trends she's loving right now: clogs, cutouts, crossbody bags and Y2K.
Read on to shop some of Buccio's favorite styles, with accessories to boot.
Styling clogs, cutouts and crossbody bags as seen on TODAY
Clog and cowboy boot outfit for women
Dolce Vita Croc Embossed Cowboy Boots
A bonus trend to start: Cowboy boots! Buccio loves these boots that she grabbed from T.J.Maxx and styled them with a chic bodycon dress.
Dolce Vita Closen Clogs
A classic woodgrain design and striking metallic accents meet in this Dolce Vita clog. Coming in at over 40% off (in all three chic colors) it may be hard to resist this trendy footwear. "They’re super cute and really comfortable. I’ve worn them almost every day since they came in," one reviewer wrote.
Universal Thread Magnolia Heels
These sleek clogs feature a memory foam insole and come in three different colors: black, cream and light brown. The brand says the block heel can add some height to your look without making you feel unsteady on your feet.
Target Women's Wide Leg Cropped Jeans
Complete with five pockets, Target's green cropped jeans look as eye-catching and they are practical. Their high-waist fit is designed to provide flattering coverage, which contrasts well with the wide-leg pant legs.
H&M Halterneck Top with Collar
Finish this Y2K-inspired outfit with a ribbed halterneck, available in four colors ranging from a neutral white to pastel pink. The top's V-neck fit and sophisticated collar add maturity and style.
Oyanus Halter Top
This stylish halter top has less of a nostalgic feel to it and is a bit longer than the option above. Tuck it into the wide-leg jeans Buccio picked or into your favorite pair of pants later on in the season.
A New Day Sling Fanny Pack
Fanny packs are more than just functional — they're surprisingly on-trend now. This sleek option comes in several different colors that you can pair with this look (or your own!).

Cutout outfit for women
Ivy Park One-Piece Swimsuit
Beyonce's Ivy Park one-piece swimsuit combines deep colors with funky cutouts to create an eye-catching look. Even though this item is technically a bathing suit, it can also double as a versatile bodysuit when paired with edgy bottoms and a platform boot.
PrettyLittleThing Black Denim Skirt
Take your swimsuit from the beach to brunch with a simple skirt. Buccio picked this black skirt to pair with the one-piece to make it chic enough for casual wear.
PrettyLittleThing Cleated Chunky Chelsea Boot
Finish the look with a pair of booties that you can wear from summer into fall. They're on sale for $31 right now, so you don't have to break the bank to level up your look.
Crossbody outfit for women
Zara Half-Moon Mini Crossbody Bag
Embrace the monochrome look and tap into the "Barbiecore" trend with this bright pink half moon-shaped bag. It features an adjustable and detachable crossbody strap, so you can easily take it from a night out to an errand run in the morning.
Forever 21 Ruched One-Shoulder Midi Dress
Make a statement in this flattering midi dress, which can be worn alone or paired with a blazer to tone down the look. If hot pink isn't your thing, the dress also comes in a flattering royal blue color.
Lillusory Ruched Tank Dress
This tank dress has similar ruched detailing as Buccio's pick but offers a bit more coverage on the shoulders. Plus, the side-tie on the waist gives it an extra-chic look.
Steve Madden Lilah Clear Heels
While Buccio picked these heels to finish the look, you can also wear these neutral shoes with any kind of outfit. They look trendy and the block heel also makes them more comfortable to walk in, according to the brand.
Add extra pops of color with these accessories, chosen by Buccio:
- Grain of Sand Billy Multicolor Beaded Necklace
- Grain of Sand The Colored Shells Necklace
- Grain of Sand Happy Pearls and Cat's Eye Necklace
Crossbody outfit for men
Fjallraven Kånken Sling Bag
Buccio puts a more classic spin on the crossbody trend with this sling backpack. Since it is available in five colors, you can pick a shade to match the look she put together or opt for one that suits your current wardrobe.
Urban Outfitters BDG 5” Denim Volley Short
With pockets, an elastic waistband and an adjustable tie closure, these breezy shorts are perfect to spend summer days in. The washed denim exterior gives them the fashionable look of jean shorts, without the tight waist or need for a belt.
H&M Slim Fit Patterned Polo Shirt
With a print bright enough for summer, this polo is an elevated version of a wardrobe staple. Slip your trendy crossbody bag under the shirt's collar for a seamless look.
Y2K outfit for men
Urban Outfitters Standard Cloth Adjustable Cuff Tech Cargo Pant
Cargo pants are in right now — and for good reason. They combine fashion and function and tap into the slightly oversize fit that seems to be popular right now.
Urban Outfitters Manastash Disarmed Tee
If the pants don’t have enough pockets, you’re in luck! Buccio picked this basic tee for the top half of the look, which gets an upgraded feel thanks to the tech-style pocket.
Clogs outfit for teens
Crocs Classic Crush Clog
This durable and dynamic clog option is designed to provide 360-degree comfort, making it a great fit for your summer adventures. Choose from three shades and enhance your Y2K aesthetic with Crocs Jibbitz (charms made to fit into the holes of the shoe) for a fully customized look.
Walmart Jordache Womens Slouchy Overall
Editor's Note: This pick is out of stock, but we found a similar option below.
Buccio's slouchy overalls shows off the rectangle tee she paired with them to create a neutral Y2K look.
Hollister Lightweight Baggy Overalls
Available in medium wash, these lightweight baggy overalls are perfect for your next backyard barbecue or outdoor gathering. Buccio recommends pairing them with Y2K accessories, including Crocs clogs and tinted sunglasses, for the ultimate look.
Urban Outfitters Koto 03.015 Rectangle Tee
To add to the flowy aesthetic, Buccio paired the slouchy overalls with this rectangle tee for your comfort. The shirt is available in three colors — gold, black and tan — and is made from 100 percent responsibly sourced US-grown cotton, according to the brand.
Forever 21 Rimless Rectangle Sunglasses
'Tis the season for rose-colored glasses! Whether you are hopping on the trend for a return to a more playful style or simply enjoy a little color in your life, don't hesitate to accessories your clogs with this Y2K staple.
Cutout outfit for teens
Madden NYC Juniors' Cut Out Ring Detail Crochet Dress
This fun and flirty dress taps into two trends we’re seeing right now: cutouts and crochet. Buccio chose to pair it with a hat that’s equally as trendy to finish off the look.
Steve Madden Echo Sandal
If you want an edgier look, pair the daintier crochet dress with a lug sole sandal. With 1.5-inch platform, chunky buckle closure and a "fisherman" strap design, you better be prepared to make a statement.
Olivia and Kate 2-piece Mommy And Me Printed Bucket Hat Set
Since this hat features both black and white detailing, you can wear it with whichever shade of the dress you choose. It’s also a 2-for-1 deal — it includes one hat for an adult and one for a kid that makes for an adorable coordinated outfit.
