Do or not to do
Every season there are new trends but how do you pull in a trend with out overkill? If you have a basic wardrobe of simple yet stylist clothes, trends are a great way to accessorize. Think of bags, scarfs, hats or coats when in a business or work environment. This is not the place for bold, bright and overwhelming colors or fabrics. Even keep you hair and makeup a little subdued, you don’t want to be talked about at the water cooler.
When you wear trends, try to do one at a time. I’ve seen this too many times where someone absolutely loves cheetah and insists on wearing in from head to toe….ewww…you don’t want to look like a crazy cat lady! Or someone who loves the trend of feathers so they have feathers in their hair, feathers on their shirt with feather earrings…too tacky!
Hair is a fantastic accessory but should it follow a trend? When the “pob” (or Posh bob) came back around, I saw sooooo many people chop all their hair off to just be trendy. Some looked Fantastic!! But some needed a paper bag! Just because it is a trend, doesn’t mean that it is good for everyone. And shame on the stylists that did the same cut on every single person that walked in.
Try to do trends a little more subtle and you will see how it accents your style. For instance if you are going to wear a trendy top, keep the rest of you neutral and add a great bag. Or keep you colors neutral and pop a colored belt or necklace to pull in some style. Take it easy and you will be surprised how trends can make your style classy and up to date.
