What goes around comes around. And nowhere does that hold more true than inside your closet. Just when you’re ready to ditch the denim, or lose the logos, they’re right back in fashion.

But there’s a big difference between looking chic and looking dated. That’s where beauty and style expert Zanna Roberts Rassi comes in, to help identify what’s on trend and what’s just tired.

Animal Prints

Leopard prints have been around for decades, but not since the '60s have we seen such a resurgence. And you'll make a statement in this leopard shirtdress. Pair it with a pair of round sunglasses for an impeccably cool look.

Editor's note: We also love these leopard print frocks.

Prairie Dresses

Cher was the queen of this trend back in the '70s, and like her, it's back — and hotter than ever. Make sure you choose an off-the-shoulder style in a bright shade and in a pretty floral print. And pair it with a gorgeous saddle bag.

Polka Dots

Dot prints are a timeless classic. Yes, we know kids wear polka dots quite often, so to avoid looking childish, choose a polka-dot dress in a sophisticated silhouette, like this ruffle hem midi dress. And if you're feeling really brave, pair the dress with dotted shoes!

Head-to-Toe Denim

We know denim never goes out of style. The head-to-toe style is less common, but twice as cool. Plus, it's versatile, easily going from work to after-work drinks. Just don't go overboard with a cowboy theme, or you might look ridiculous.

Logo Mania

Forget wearing your heart on your sleeve (or chest) and try a logo instead. The coolest (and easiest) way to wear it is in a versatile graphic T-shirt from a heritage brand. And pair the shirt with dad-style sneakers. Of course, you can't forget a bright red fanny pack, which is hugely on-trend at the moment.
