Buy or not buy into a trend, 3 easy rules
Even though i am constantly looking for and understanding the newest trends coming from the runways, street style stars, my fav bloggers, fashion magazines, etc, etc i am often stuck with the dilemma to buy or not buy a trend, whether it is here to stay or will it fizzle out. In the past i was usually late almost super late to jump onto the bandwagon of trends but now i have started to make fast decisions. No waiting and watching anymore, its either Yes or No.
However the 3 easy rules i follow before actually buying into a trend are
- i should be able to come up with at least 3 diff outfit combinations with the piece.
- 8/10 times i prefer to buy a neutral colour so its easier to wear with different outfits.
- it should either match my personal style or be a challenge i.e something that i truly like but find a bit difficult to work. Just by following these three simple rules i have been able to be on trend and enjoy them without being stuck with items that i would only wear once and regret purchasing.
I love ankle boots (ending at ankle level) so wanted to try the calf boots (ending at mid calf level) trend but was not particularly sure so i got one in nude which can be worn with multiple colors and have been able to wear quite a few times and in todays outfit i quite like how it dressed up this casual dress. It is from 4th and reckless, currently sold out but there are other calf length options in velvet and pu leather, they deliver worldwide.
Jackets hanging on one shoulder is definitely a styling trick i love. how instantly u have a fresh look with something u might have worn a million times.
Think parisian chic think beret! After wearing it this day to actually cover my dirty unwashed hair i am sold. Couldn’t be happier about how chic it made my outfit look.
Thank you for stopping by! See you in my next one.
