never be a trend slave, but do put your own spin on current trends.
Gingham. No surprise this one isn’t high on my list of wearable items, but there are definitely some edgier ways to do this classic look.
I love the men’s shoes with this romper too!
Leather jacket is the perfect touch.
Ripped jeans and gingham maternity; this is one bad ass momma.
2. Exposed shoulders. Cutouts can go a little slutty and off the shoulder options with ruffles and other feminine details can be a bit too girly for me, but take a look at some of these strong women.
Mixing in men’s wear always looks elevates a look.
The silhouette of this top doesn’t immediately read “cutouts” which is a refreshing take on it.
I’m on the fence about this chunky knit, but I have a feeling it would surprise me with the right pant and shoe pairing. It’s important to keep an open mind. A willingness to change is what evolves our style.
3. Micro pleats. Generally, these go super feminine really fast. I’m sensing a trend this year in fashion. Feminine is in.
Normally, this one wouldn’t grab my attention in a, “I need that” sort of way. I saw it on the show Empire and I immediately explained to my husband the work that must have gone into constructing and designing this dress.
I paused it over the back. The pattern and front are definitely girly, but sometimes it’s fun to get outside your comfort zone. Variety is what prevents your fashion sense from feeling like a uniform.
Micro pleated trousers… Yes, please!
Is there any better way to tone down the femininity of a micr pleated circle skirt than to cut it in leather?
4. The classic stripe is coming back in a new way.
Instantly reuse your old pieces by combining them with new striped pieces.
This maxi shirt dress gets a new start when worn over pants.
Get on board with colors! I’m sure I could stand to take that advice.
5. Sequins, Sparkles and, and all that glitters.
Combining a t-shirt with a sequined dress pant is pure genius.
Fun pieces like this gold sequin jacket dress up the most basic ensembles.
It’s crazy pieces like this that I can only hope to pass along to my children. They will think I’m nuts, but I’m okay with that.
