Trends come and go. And honestly, you don’t have to buy into all trends. But once in a while, we fall in love with some trends and want to give them a try and that’s absolutely okay by me.
SO today, I’m sharing a few tips on incorporating trends into your everyday looks plus 2 examples featuring date night outfits.
1. My favourite way of buying into trends is through DIYs. It’s way simpler and you save money and oh if you don’t love the trend in the long run, you don’t lose much because you didn’t spend much.
And that exactly what inspired look #1
What I’m wearing;
Bag; Gift from Mama
CUT OFF DENIM
Instead of same old skinny ripped jeans or mum jeans try out denim pants with different cuts. Frayed and cut hems are probably the easiest to add to your wardrobe. And the easiest to make. Exactly what i did! The good part is, all you need is a scissors and some jeans.
Then, I added a bandana which is also big this season and viola. Which brings me to tip #2
2. If a trend is too bold for your style, try tapping into it using accessories. For example, if snake prints are in vogue and you aren’t the type to wear a snake print bodysuit, you can buy a snake print bag or scarf or even snake print shoes. Easy as ABC.
When I was putting this outfit together, I had in mind, a night out with the girls. I like to look different. UNIQUE. So, instead of wearing a dress like the others might do, I’d wear my cut offs and make a statement with a bandana. Pretty much unexpected huh? You don’t have to button your shirt that way (I’m just extra) but you totally can if you want, a clutch to hold your face powder and lipstick et VOILA!
GRAPHIC TEE X FLORAL PRINT
These two are my absolute favourite this season. And both pieces were thrifted.
3. Not too sure about a trend? Go thrifting and get it in a less expensive price until you’re sure you want to invest in it.
I dont like too much colour in my outfit so i pretty much kept it all black. Just in case you want to add some floral prints to your wardrobe and you’re not the type to wear too much color in one outfit, stick to small or muted prints. Plain fabric with nicely scattered florals is a better option rather than 5 or 6 huge flowers on one skirt. But if you love colors and making a bold statement, the bigger and brighter the better! This might seem biased but I feel pieces with simple but nice florals are classic. They can be worn in any season and they’ll still be appropriate. So, if it were up to me, I’d invest in a floral piece that I can still wear at 30.
I paired my floral skirt with this really cool logo tee, also a fave and also thrifted. And it pretty much speaks for itself. Do your googles if you don’t understand french. Lol.
I hope you find these tips helpful. Let me know which trend is your favourite.
