I would never proclaim myself to be an expert on Fashion, or coming and passing trends. But I do love fashion.. and so here’s a post totally dedicated to it.
High Waisted Jeans
The first time I ever remember seeing a pair of high wasted jeans was on my best friend from high school. She was always about 2 years ahead of the trends, and I remember thinking she looked like a complete idiot in those jeans, but I knew they’d be big the moment I saw her wear them. I have to say. I’m still not quite convinced when it comes to high Waisted Jeans. I really kind of hated them when I first saw them and I still don’t wear any. (Except for with long tops, high waisted are amazing for getting rid of the whole hipster coin slot issue) I do however think that if you have the right figure, you can pull them off.
Things I’ve noticed about High Waisted Jeans: Don’t have them too tight, a muffin top isn’t attractive at any point in time, but especially when you decide to tuck shirts into jeans.
This trend took a while for me to get as well. I couldn’t get past thinking these kind of sandals were meant for Jesus. And then there’s the whole, cankle issue. But I feel.. the trend has lasted too long to ignore it. I think the best kind of gladiator sandal is one that has buckles of some sort, but zips up at the back. It’s a pain to have to do up that many buttons. I also think everyone should invest in a gladiator wedge. It’s like the dressy version of a gladiator, and is perfect for dressing up an outift. I have a flat pair and a wedge pair. They are great. I also think a great alternative for those worrying about cankles.. is sandals that have the gladiator look to them, but don’t actually cut your ankles off..
Gross. I don’t think I’ve ever really found a pair that’s nice. I’m not even sure super models pull them off, let alone Payless Versions that you see all through winter. They make me vomit less than they did 2 years ago.. but every winter I see these things come back in.. and I get depressed.
Favourites favourites from Fashion Icons:
Little Black Dress
Ah the LDB. It’s probably the most important fashion piece in the world. Yet it’s surprising how many of us don’t have one. The LBD can be worn a hundred times over, with different shoes and accessories and ribbons and belts. It should be flattering, classic, sexy but not slutty and you should be able to wear for both seasons.
Never has a woman been so in debt to a piece of footwear. Heels instantly make your legs look better. My favourites are obviously, Jimmy Choo %Christian Laboutin.
Investment/ Luxury Bag
The one thing it’s totally okay to splurge on I think. It doesn’t matter if everything else you are wearing is from Target. If you’ve got a beautiful luxury bag.. it doesn’t really matter.
Normal people don’t really need these very often, but it’s still fun to dream.
Everyone should have a good trench. Even if you don’t live in a freezing climate.
