Fashion File... Nod, don't bow
I was reading a fashion magazine the other day when I came across this sentence... "Nod to the trends, don't bow to them." Now that is some good advice. Just because something is trendy does not mean that you have to cover yourself in that trend. Nod, don't bow.
Here are a few examples...
One thing that is trendy right now is navajo prints. Personally I am not a fan of this trend and do not have one thing even hinting a navajo print (although I never say never). Just because it is a trend does not mean you have to run out and get something. Anyway. Picture 1 is a bow, picture 2 is a nod.
Another trend is colored denim. Picture 1 is a bow, picture 2 is a nod...
This also goes for how often you wear a certain trend. Just because belts and scarves are in doesn't mean you wear one every day.
And while we are on the topic of trends. Remember that trends do eventually die, although some last longer than others. Let's all hope the legging trend has a long run because they sure are comfortable. But every once in a while, we need to learn to let go of trends. And if you simply cannot get rid of your diamond studded pocket jeans, put them in the back of your closet and pray that the trend circles back soon.
Nod, don't bow and bury the dead.
