RED AND CHECKERS: THE RIGHT WAY TO MATCH TRENDS
Trends are a seasonal thing and it’s fun to look on point and share an outfit everybody wants to see at the moment. However, how do you make sure you don’t look like you’ve thrown random trends together in the hope of getting noticed?
The main thing to remember when styling trends is to stay true to your own style. Give the trend your own personal twist to avoid looking like you just simply follow trends.
Secondly, pick trends that actually fit your style. You might be a girly girl that’s into dresses, high heels and elegant fabrics. The clever thing to do is adopt a trend that fits these criteria, but is just a bit different and a new way to look at your wardrobe. This season, the dark floral trend on elegant fabrics and shapes is just the right trend for you!
If you are, like me, not a girly girl and never wear things like this, you might want to try something new (which is great!), but if it doesn’t match who you are, you might want to leave this trend alone and go for another trend!
I for instance, love blazers, clean lines and simple graphic prints. I love the checkered trend and would love to wear everything checkered, haha, but that would be too much. By combining it with another trend I love, wearing red, and wearing them in the clean and strong shapes I like, these pieces enhance my style instead of looking silly. I tried something new, I’ve never worn red pants before and so I recommend you to take risks, but always stay true to your own style!
