SHOP THE POST:
I'm always intrigued to see what's trending now; what's hot off the catwalk; what are the most fashionable currently wearing; and what's in-stores now; which leads us to the patchwork trend, has it been and gone? It can be risky being into trends, especially when you don't really know how long they'll last. It can go both ways in my opinion. You can either find yourself buying into a trend too soon when it isn't here to stay or you can end up not giving in to the hype, only to find a few months later it's still very much on trend (by which time you don't want to give in and end up following the crowd - oh the dilemmas). Hence why buying into trends can be such a risk at times.
With that said, I'm a strong believer in wearing whatever you want to wear - it all comes down to how confident you feel in what you're wearing. I picked out these patchwork denim jeans because it was a trend I was dying to try out for myself and these jeans are quite loose fitting too which is a style I often struggle with so ultimately, I wanted to give it a go and try and make it work for me. I actually really love these, they're loose but not too loose (if you know what I mean) and I really love the way they look in contrast to a tight jumper. I paired the jeans with a roll neck from New Look, this one is super cute because of the frill - I've already picked it up in black too - and to keep things a little more sexy I opted for nude strappy heels from Public Desire.
