We’ve all been there. You see a trend off the runway or in the stores that you love, and others that have you going, “What were they thinking?!” Off-the-shoulder tops are one of this year’s hottest trends. No doubt for amazing reasons. They are feminine, light weight, and flirty. I didn’t always get into this trend because I felt like many trends, it wouldn’t stick around. But I am finding myself adoring off the shoulder tops more and finding new ways to wear it! I wore this trend recently in my post Why It Shouldn’t Matter What Others Think of You and was fully satisfied embracing a little bohemian chic vibes. If you’re interested in trying out a trend, but not sure how you feel about it try, read on to try out some of my tips for embracing trends.
Honestly, I’m not a big fan of trends. I know, big shocker for someone who loves fashion as much as I do. I prefer a style that is classic and can be wearable for years. That’s not to say that I don’t love to incorporate many of the trending styles into my wardrobe each season, but I am highly selective about which ones I choose to incorporate. Today I’m sharing with you some tips I’ve found helpful in deciding which trends to keep and which to leave alone.
1. Where them only if it fits your style
This could be obvious, but don’t wear any trend just to fit in. If you love it then by all means wear it and feel great doing it! However, don’t feel the need to wear it just because it’s trending. Not every trend is meant for you or your style!
2. Don’t invest a lot of money in them
3. Find ways to make it look your own
One of my favorite ways to try a trend is by mixing the new with the old from my wardrobe. For example, if you’re going for the bohemian vibes, there’s no need to make every part of your outfit full embracing the trend. By incorporating aspects of it that are your own, without diving full into the trend, you will keep the look authentic to your style.
