How to try a trend without becoming a fashion victim

Do you aspire to be trendier, but are you scared of becoming fashion road-kill? Would you like to inject your wardrobe with more modernity, but worry that you will be wasting your money on purchases that are only relevant for a short period of time?? If so, here’s a fashion trick to get you the results you want without the downsides that you don’t.

Rather than focusing on trends that have to do with the shape of garments – a tricky venture at best anyways – focus instead on trends that have to do with how you pair garments and create outfits. Not clear on what I am referring to? Allow me to explain…

   vs.  

For example, skip high-low hems on tops and dresses and, instead, mix patterns. How come?? When high-low hems are “over,” those tops and dresses will be useless. But, if you buy patterns that you like, when mixing them is no longer at the height of style, you can still enjoy them paired with solids.

    vs.   

Need another scenario? Baggy, pajama and track-inspired pants can be found in some form or another at most major retailers this spring. But, if you’re wary of that sort of commitment, then why not try monochromatic dressing instead? Select your favorite color, collect a variety of garments in that particular hue and create an outfit from the array of shades. Since you’re a fan of this color, you can still enjoy the pieces separately when monochromatic dressing is “out.”

With these guidelines in mind, feel free to tackle trends selectively and upgrade your style like a pro, without becoming a fashion victim or draining your wallet. Now that’s a win-win if ever I did see one!

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
