How do you feel about fashion trends?
I want to be able to wear my new clothes as long as possible before they go out of fashion. Trends change quickly, about every 1/2 year - and newly purchased outfits should at the least stay in fashion until my wallet is full again.
Have you bought something new this winter and now you're not sure how long you will be able to wear it? Don't worry, many of the autumn-winter trends will still be in next spring. Here is a list of trends you can invest in:
Velvet pants and blazer
This ultra-soft material is currently very fashionable. I bought my grey, velvet blazer two months ago and love to combine it with different pieces, such as shirts, sweaters and leather leggings - which look great in contrast to the soft material. Sometimes I pimp the blazer up with a wide leather belt and feel like a real fashionista! I am sure I can wear my velvet blazer as long as the weather permits. Trust me, it's really easy to lend my velvet blazer a spring touch with a simple shirt, belt and great statement jewelry.
Cape & Poncho
Totally popular right now and also perfect for springtime are capes and ponchos. They are easy and uncomplicated to wear and just right for the transitional period. They will stay in fashion and look modern while their versatility allows them to be combined with nearly everything you have in your wardrobe. On warmer days, you can abandon your shearling jacket and grab your autumn poncho. Bye bye, winter jacket - welcome back, cape, I am so happy to call you my own.
Oversized sweaters and jackets that look as if they were stolen from your big brother's closet are always cool and will be still in fashion next spring – I promise! I own two of these and like them a lot. An oversized sweater can be paired equally well with a plissé skirt or my ripped or flared jeans. And the best thing about oversized items is that they are so cuddly. On a cool spring day, an oversized sweater can replace a light coat. Congrats to all who have one. Keep it! The look is cool and can last you until summer begins.The most popular color this winter is pink and – lucky us - this color is beautiful and will still be fashionable next spring. Pink enlightens the world and lets gray thoughts vanish immediately. Are you impatient and ready for the spring season? Don't put your pink coat away yet. Go and buy another pink item and rejoice that you are already in trend for next season.
Blouses, coats, jackets, even underwear: There is no department in any store without animal pattern. Most beautiful of all are coats in leo print. They will still be in fashion next spring and, believe me, you will love and wear them every day. To style your animal print for spring, pair with light blue jeans and a blouse. Too warm? So just wear the leo printed chelseas to pimp up your black pants.
Pssst. I'll share a secret with you. Do you already have the color green in your wardrobe? Keep it - whatever it is!! Yes, green will be the most trendy color for the summer season. But don't say a word to anyone, if you want to be the first person showing off this trendy color. Believe me, you will have all the attention and all eyes on you!
