Happy Style Tip Tuesday! Last week I shared with you guys my 5 favorite Fall trends. In the fashion world being “trendy” is not always a good word but I think trends are a great way to refresh your style for a new season or just in general when you feel like you are stuck in style rut. So today I am going to share tips on how you can try new trends.
My favorite way to try a new trend, be it animal print or neons, is to try an accessory. Like a scarf, a bag or a belt. That way you can get a feel of it and see how you feel about it. I am not a big animal print person (I still am not but its growing on it). So I tried it earlier this year with an animal print scarf and loved it.
Shop at Affordable Stores
Shopping at affordable stores lowers your risk because you don’t have invest as much in trends. If you happen to not like it you don’t lose a lot of money. For the longest time, I wanted to try the biker shorts and you know it is a kinda ‘out there’ trend. So I shopped for them at Ross. And scored them for $6 only! I wore this look for the San Francisco Fashion Week and I’m not sure I’d wear it in a regular setting. But all I lose is $6 which I am ok with it 🙃
Pair Trends with Something you Love
Style the new trendy piece with something you love or even with a basic outfit. That way you know you are introducing only one new thing in your outfit. And you won’t feel like the outfit is alien to you. I love blazers so I styled the biker shorts with a plaid blazer and ankle boots.
Don’t wear all trends at once
(Unless you love them all 🙃) Usually, wearing too many trends at the same time can make it seem like you are trying too hard to be “trendy”. Trendy is not always a bad thing. But if you are trying out something new, stick to one or maybe two new trends. Because if you are not comfortable wearing a new trend it shows in your outfit.
