My Personal Thoughts About “Trends”
When I think of “trends” in the world of fashion, I immediately consider them to be what is popular and “what everyone else is wearing”.
I am particular when it comes to what is considered “trendy”. I don’t want to comply to just any fashion trend that comes my way because I have my own personal, unique style that I don’t want to fade. I’m a fan of taking a few trends and incorporating them into my everyday style that is all ready in my closet.
WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A TREND TO EMBRACE:
1) Your Own Style
Everyone has their OWN style when it comes to style. Some people are all about vibrant colors and others are all about natural tones in their pieces. It also may depend on your body type as well whether you like certain styles or not. Lastly, some may choose their style by their comfort.
My personal style consists of warm and earthy colors because they make me happy! As far as comfort, I stay away from off the shoulder tops because it bothers me if sleeves are falling off my shoulders throughout the day. I like the uniqueness and the memories overalls bring to me so I incorporate them into my wardrobe. A trend that is popular are monochromatic looks. Rather than investing in a neon bodysuit, I would choose a warm color like yellow and would pair a yellow tee with my yellow pair of overalls. I am not compromising my personal style and sticking to a trend. Others actually like it more because it adds a relatable, creative twist that inspires others to embrace the trend!
Following all the trends that come your way will dry up that bank account rather quick! New, trendy pieces are usually rather pricy since they are in high demand. Everyone wants them while they are popular before they run out.
I am also on a limited budget so only deciding what styles I want to embrace and choosing ones I will not invest in helps my bank account. I don’t just go buying everything that is popular. I go through the practicality of each trend and how I will use it in everyday life. For example, tiny purses were a trend. Some were only like 3 inches tall! I did not invest in them since they would not serve me any purpose when going to a grocery store and I predict they will go out of style quick due to that impractical detail. I saved my money to embrace another trends I really like! Babydoll dresses and high waisted jeans were more on my radar.
Only choosing to invest in a few trends and not others makes you more credible as well. You don’t want to seem like a person who just chases after everything, but is super informed and dedicated to a few trends that you are really passionate about. If you are really excited about one or two trends that you incorporate in your looks, that passion will pass on to others more than if you would grab on to everything moving on so fast that it looks like you don’t really have any opinion at all on any style. You will start to stray from your special individuality into just a runaway model who is dressed by the tends.
I am a brand ambassador and I want my followers to trust my reviews on styles and trends so I want to be careful about which ones I want to support. I want to be fully on board with a trend before I recommend it. I also get really excited about certain trends and even get more creative with them by styling them all in different ways for you all. If I chased after all the popular trends, then I would not have time to focus on the ones I really liked.
