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!

Checkered blazer - Balmain, T-shirt - H&M, Red wide leg trousers - H&M, Heeled boots-  H&M, Bag - vintage, Leather belt - H&M

I agree with you, trends are seasonal, it’s sometimes fun to play with them a little bit, but it’s important to have own style.
I really like that look, that belt at the waist it’s really great idea and the blazer looks perfect with those trousers.

I love that you have shot this outfit in a shopping centre. I would never have thought to do that.
You are so sleek! I love the belt over this jacket and the red pants are such a great piece to pair with the jacket.

Simple and effective, love the checkered everything trend as well and a blazer looks so good with any outfit! The red pants are the perfect pop of colour for fall and yes to take small risks and explore the limits of our own style! Happy week, gal

These are good tips and I love the blazer belted – those are such fun red statement pants, perfect with the printed blazer :)

Hope you are having a lovely week, and you got some bargains in the sales. I ended up grabbing a little something on Cyber Monday after resisting temptation all weekend, haha!
