It’s always so much fun to see what the new trends are each season. I admit, some trends are pretty way out there and I wouldn’t touch some of them. I always get excited when a trend is something that I love, or better yet, something that has come back into style that I’ve hung on to in my closet simply because I loved it so much. As they say, fashion comes and goes and things will always come back into style eventually.
Some people don’t pay any attention to trends and what is popular at the moment, they just wear what they love even if it isn’t in style. Which is fine, but, if you are like me, you may choose one or two things that are on trend for the season. I probably wouldn’t design my entire wardrobe on just trends. Number one it would be expensive to change your closet out each season with only new items. Number two, I think it’s important to have classic pieces in your closet that never go out of style. What fun to combine classic with a new fashion trend every once in a while.
We all have to get dressed each day, so we might as well make it fun!
Have you settled on your fashion style yet? If you are still struggling a bit, click here for an article I wrote on your fashion style. That is always a good beginning in deciding what trend you will decide on to add in for the season.
The second step would be your best color for your skin tone and hair color. Certain colors will look beautiful on you and some colors will look so so. We might as well wear a color that makes us look and feel beautiful, right?

The idea is to have your closet designed just for you. The correct style, the correct colors and of course the things that you love. Life is busy and we have things to do and accomplish each day, so when you step into your closet to get ready for the day, you don’t have to stand there trying to figure it out. It’s a good thing to just walk in with outfits put together and just get dressed and begin your day with confidence.

Did you see anything you are interested in trying for Spring? I might try a couple. I like the dark denim trend in jeans. I’ve always loved Mary Jane type shoes and embellished bags. Oh, and polka dots, always polka dots on anything for me. I went out shopping a few days ago and where I live, I’m lucky to see anything that is on trend in the stores so it’s probably a good thing that being on trend in everything I wear isn’t that important to me. If it’s something I really love, I will search for it online or if I see it in a local store, I get very excited and go for it if it isn’t over the top expensive.
Hope you enjoyed being updated on a few of the trends for this coming season. I can only imagine my friends who don’t care about fashion at all, you are yawning big time about right now….and that is okay. I do know that deep down we all want to feel good in how we present ourselves to our family, friends and the world when we go out. Our goal is to be a light to the world. We all have something to say and we want to be heard. Our presentation of ourselves is the first thing people hear and we have only a few seconds to be sized up for some to decide if they want to hear what we have to say. We know that God looks on our hearts and man looks on the outward appearance. You have much to offer the world, we need your voice.. so speak loudly or softly to offer hope to this world we are in.
I’ll share one little story about trends. Many years ago, denim skirts were the rage. I found the perfect denim skirt at a store called Stein Mart. I loved the style, the length, the color and if that isn’t it enough, it had a bling button at the waist. I was also at a good weight and it fit really well. I have hung on to that skirt always thinking it may come back in style and most importantly I was determined to fit it in again! About two months ago while cleaning out my closet, I came across the skirt. I thought, “Okay, Beverly, it’s time to get real with yourself, you aren’t going to fit into this skirt anytime soon and it’s been out of style forever!” I gave it away. Guess what’s in style? Yes, denim skirts! I also think just a few more pounds gone, I could have worn it for the Spring. Oh well, it’s gone and time to move on. To be honest, I’m glad I let it go, but, it’s just a reminder about fashion styles and trends. They come and go. So, don’t take it so serious…..learn what style is best for you, have fun and be confident in who you are!
Have a fun fashionable day!
Until next time,
