I have a love / hate relationship with trends. While I’ve always had a great interest in trends and understanding how I can make my outfit more on trend, I’ve never been one to dress head to toe in a trend. I prefer instead to choose the most wearable trends that I can feel confident won’t be ‘one hit wonders’ that I wouldn’t be seen dead in the following season. I tend to opt for more classic pieces, and the odd trend piece, often an accessory or outerwear piece that makes my whole look ‘on trend’ without disregarding my signature style.
I finally found a pair of white boots that I like (that also weren’t silly money) to wear with my floral maxi dress – a combination I’ve been wanting to wear for ages. It was the tiniest bit milder this weekend, a bit different to the scorching weather we had last week. I could have gladly ditched the jacket again but for once I decided that I should wear my khaki suedette jacket, floral maxi dress and white boots by Kurt Geiger.
I stumbled across a really old outfit on the blog the other day and realised how much I still liked it – in fact I thought to myself that I’d totally wear it again.
Generally my reaction to anything I wore more than three or four years ago is one of horror, but as I liked this outfit from 2017 so much I thought I should go through my outfit archives to see if there were any others that also caught my eye. There were actually more than I thought, and it was quite interesting to see how my style has changed in some respects, but not in others.
First of all I SWEAR I had every intention of getting this look out weeks ago. Once the sunshine came along the green eyed fashion monster (this is me) couldn’t wait unleash the green from my wardrobe. But, as usual, my life has been a crazy mess and in true blogger style, I am posting this half way through the Summer instead of the start as i intended.
Fashion is forever changing. The biggest trend one the fashion world eventually fade away, while shapes and colours briefly banished are destined to make a come back at some point. It means that fashion-lovers are used to going backward, enthusiastically trying out silhouettes and brands that have a nostalgic element.
