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 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.
Summer is officially here: despite the odd weather we’ve been having the past few days, there is still some sunlight to be seen! And so, with this, comes BBQ’s, cookouts, picnics and just about anything else you can think of. So yes, you’ll need to be prepared to dress at any time in a summer get up so we’ve picked out 10 dresses to impress any time this summer, because all we really need are a few dresses don’t we?
