And can style with what she already has in her wardrobe! It's thrilling!
Now, I'm not a trend tramp. Being a slave to current trends means you'll spend tons of money on new clothes every season and you'll wind up looking like a fashion victim. (like so many tv/movie stars nowadays!) I like dressing classically (aka timelessly), with a little retro and a little modern thrown into the mix. But staying at least a bit knowledgeable about the current trends helps you look current. Current does not have to equal trendy. You'll get ideas of how to freshly style your existing pieces and you might find something you love and want to wear forever. For example, I really like wearing all white (with colored shoes!) and that was a big trend this past spring and summer. So while items were "on trend" and readily available, I picked up a new skirt. And I really liked the clear crystal accessories that were paired with the white and could be found EVERYWHERE.
I'll be able to use what I found with oodles of outfits in the future.
One of the big trends this fall is camel. Not beige. Not cream. Camel. The lovely, warm shade of camel happens to be a favorite of mine. It goes well with my skin and hair color and it is the main paint color in my house. Here are the camel items I have in my closet and will be styling this fall. I bought them all AGES ago.
(Funnily enough, almost everything I have in this color is meant for cooler temps.
Fall and camel must be natural soul mates.)
But I fit into it again so I'm going to figure out how to style it.
New styles I'll try: pairing it with a dark heather gray (really nice combo I saw from Ralph Lauren.), olive green (I have a silk top in this color that I think will look great!), or I may wear camel from head to toe (as seen in a Chloe ad) and channel the minimalism trend that's also on deck this season.
So what are your thoughts? Do you love the color? Hate it? Want to embrace it now that it's "trendy?" (Trust me, camel is never "out.")
