Following Trends Doesn't Make Your Style Boring

When it comes to trends I think you'll find there are two types of people: those who shy away or dismiss trends and those who revel following the acquisition of the latest on-trend piece. I try to experiment with trends as much as I can, which leads me to my latest wardrobe addition.

I'm usually quite cautious when it comes to buying into trends, especially when a particular item becomes a must-have, you'll find that most bloggers are quick to step foot on that train before it derails but more often than not, after a month or so, the once coveted item becomes another pre-loved piece hanging in your wardrobe. For that reason, I have in the past opted to wait before buying trend-led pieces and why I get that some people are sort of anti-trends because yes, it can get repetitive when it seems like everybody is wearing the exact same thing. However, that shouldn't dictate you and your style. Following trends or buying the latest on-trend item is completely ok and doesn't make your style boring.

We're all different (I hate to be that cliché but it's true) wearing the latest trend led piece doesn't make you a clone and definitely doesn't dictate your style. All this may seem a bit random but my thought process was triggered by this wrap-around shirt, a new purchase of mine, which I um'd and ah'd about buying because I had already seen so many other people wear similar tops. The most popular being a Zara shirt worn by Millie Mackintosh which of course created a frenzy over said shirt with everybody venturing out to have one for themselves. I didn't pick up the Zara one but kept coming across similar options online so I decided to bite the bullet and pick one up for myself, trying a new online brand in the process. My wrap-around shirt is from Miss Pap and has gained so many compliments on Instagram which is always a good thing!

You know me, when I try something new I like to add old favourites into the mix so I wore my favourite blue Farleigh jeans which compliment the shirt really well thanks to their colour and because they're high waisted it means I'm not showing off too much skin either (wearing high waisted jeans and crop tops always reminds me of my teenage years). I wore some new nude ankle boots from New Look which I was putting off wearing in the fear I'd ruin them as soon as I stepped foot outside, they're a really light colour and I was worried they would crease easily and lose their shape from the first wear but actually, they've done quite well.

  2. These pictures are beautiful! I'm definitely not afraid to embrace trends, although sometimes I like to mix it up and do my own thing. This shirt looks awesome on you!

  3. I used to be really anti trend on principle, but then I realised that's probably just as bad as mindlessly following trends for the sake of it. These days I enjoy following trends a lot more, and if I like something then I wear it, if not I don't. It's really that simple!

    P.s.those jeans look like the perfect fit on you.

  4. I think your top is lovely! I think that you can follow trends, but it's about you make trends your own that sets you apart - that's what I always try to do!

    1. I agree and that's what I was trying to put across. That even if you're wearing a piece that has been super popular you can still make it your own :) X
