Fashion is run by trends – we all know that. However, it’s what you do with said trends that creates personal style. There’s nothing wrong with embracing a new trend – but some can be tricky. Here are some tips:
- Pick one trend and stick with that.
- If the trend you are going for is bright, busy, or flashy – tone down the rest of your ensemble to compliment it and let it pull the focus.
- If it doesn’t flatter your body type – don’t take it personally. Always place blame on the clothes – not on your body.
- Take risks.
