It's official: grommets are the new studs. We're definitely still loving the 70s vibes, but this type of detailing is taking us back a decade or two for a more mod look. From trim detailing on skirt hems and necklines to an all-over pattern on bags and shoes, you'll be right on trend with a little bit of grommet in your life. I mentioned that I ordered this dress where they're prominently featured on the front and -- my favorite part -- the back and I feel like this is just the first of many pieces I'll be adding to my collection. Below are some of my favorite affordable pieces you can snag right now to get in on the trend.
In other news, I'm heading to New York on Thursday for Fashion Week! Make sure to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (username: allycog) for a peek at the shows, how much champagne I'm drinking and sleep-deprived madness!

When it comes to trends I'm loving right now, anything lace-up is at the top of my list. I love that it's a little boho, a little sexy and a fun way to take something basic like a dress or sweater and take it up a notch. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I've already snagged this sweater and this one may or may not be on its way as we speak. I'm also obsessed with this dress and think I'll be adding it to my wardrobe lineup for Fashion Week. My picks below are all pretty tame, but if you're really feeling daring, try a bodysuit with a plunging neckline!
