Trends – Love or Hate
There are so many trends in front of us at the moment. I never used to be very on board with them but because I have loved the recent trends, I have been keeping an eye on them and trying to figure out how to incorporate them into my wardrobe. Here are 5 trends and my thoughts on them.
I was apprehensive to try this trend as I wasn’t sure how it would look on me, but I have adored it. It can really add some detail to a plain outfit or you could create an outfit around one statement piece like a faux fur leopard print coat. My personal favourite has been leopard print. I found some gorgeous leopard print ankle boots in Primark and they look great with black jeans and a white top.
Whenever I think of checks, I think of Cher Horowitz in Clueless with her yellow check co-ord, so when this came into the spotlight, I wanted to live my 90s dream. With all the main high street and online chains jumping on the check bandwagon, it has become so easy to find different colours of check. They are such a statement piece and so easy to style up.
If you need a little bit of height, then platforms are the answer. Platform trainers are becoming so popular especially the sort that Baby Spice made so iconic. Platform heels are set to take over 2019, just take a look at the Miu Miu signature platforms! A bit of extra height really seems to add some confidence.
Now, this is one trend I really can’t get on board with. They remind me of the hideous shorts I used to wear in the very early 2000s in the summer – they make me cringe. If you have the confidence to rock them then go you, you work it. You definitely won’t ever see me in them!
XXL Tote Bags
I’m all about having a bag big enough to carry my stuff but I don’t want to lug around a huge bag. I have seen so many bloggers using them and I feel like your outfit should be the main focus, not your bag.
