Fashion trends can sometimes be a funny and odd thing to wrap your brain around. Some looks scream stylish and classic. Others can leave you wondering when did this become something most people want to wear as part of their every day style. Lately, I’ve encountered one trend that seems to be popping up everywhere I go and that’s the fuzzy slipper slides.
We’ve entered the last stretch of summer where everyone is relishing what’s left of barbecues, beach days, and summer vacations before the days grow shorter and those cooler fall temperatures start to settle in. But that doesn’t mean we have to put away all our summer clothes just yet. There’s still a chance to enjoy the current styles of the season and among them are front tie tops and blouses.
How people define fashion and their own style choices will vary greatly from person to person. Some will make a conscious and deliberate effort to put together an outfit that feels as if it was tailor made for them, and others will reach for the nearest T-shirt and jeans that serves the purpose of looking decent enough to walk down the street to buy a carton of milk and eggs. No matter what your style preference may be, we all know which clothes we like and don’t like. Shopping for items that’s supposed to have one basic function, such as keeping you cool during hot summer months, can sometimes be tricky and a nuisance. Buying a good enough pair of shorts has been my biggest challenge year after year.
As we enter the late part of the spring season, and begin to ease into the hot, sticky summer months, there’s an eagerness to start shedding layers and putting those heavy winter jackets in storage until Jack Frost graces us with his presence another day. Spring and summer are the perfect time for bright colors and feminine dresses. Among the styles to re-emerge is the wrap dress.
Watching the seasonal trends year after year I’m always fascinated when certain styles come back in fashion. Styles, especially evergreen ones, never really disappear. They just sort of get tucked away in the closet until their time to shine comes once more. I march to the beat of my own drum when it comes to the clothes that I wear, though, I do keep a careful eye on what’s trending in fashion right now. One of the styles that never really go out of fashion, but is emerging more prominently this spring, is animal prints.
When particular style trends start dominating the fashion scene, sometimes there’s no choice other than to adapt to them and make them your own. ’90s fashion has been making a comeback in a huge way, and among the styles to return is the high waist jeans.
Shopping for a good pair of jeans can be tough. There are a lot of factors to consider from the color and style to the cut and fit. No one jeans are ever alike, and sometimes it’ll take time before you find a pair that’s just right. If finding your one perfect pair isn’t difficult enough, there’s a new trend I’m loathing even more than going jeans shopping and that’s fake front pockets.
When the weather starts heating up, everyone has their personal fashion preferences they like to wear to keep cool and stylish during those summer months. There’s a lot to choose from, like flirty dresses or shorts with just about any summer top that’ll go with it. But there’s some clothes you might not think would work well to beat the heat and that’s pants.
The Internet has significantly changed our way of living, from how we connect with one another to how we shop. All modern conveniences are right at our fingertips. Amazon has been one of the first online stores to pop up during the Internet’s formative years. It rapidly grew into a one-stop shop where people can find almost anything and everything on there, whether it’s DVDs or shoes. Amazon has since grown and expanded over the years to include much more, like groceries and an online streaming service. While I’ve been largely skeptical for some time to purchase most of my clothes online, I’ve come to be more and more open to the idea of selecting and buying them with a click or tap of a finger.
As someone who loves wearing a ton of feminine clothes with a lot of soft colors, lace trim, or flirty floral patterns, spring is the season these type of styles thrive best. Warmer days are drawing near and soon it’ll be time to throw back those closet doors and take those spring pieces out of hibernation. I like owning a little of everything, from the most current styles to the classic ones. Fashion being cyclical, there’s always at least one or two tops or bottoms that can easily be worn again. Long skirts, or maxi skirts, is another style that dominated much of ’90s fashion along with clogs and crop tops. Despite the resurgence of these long and flowy skirts, I seem to not be taking part in this trend again.
