Happy Friday! I don’t know about you but I found that this week just dragged on. Anyway today I am talking about two trends that I see creeping into the shops at the moment for the new season along with a good old classic trend that is always chic; monochrome. Monochrome is always a fail-safe, go-to if you want to look polished. It’s a good option for work or job interviews, as well as nights out or family dinners or special occasions. The possibilities are endless.
I mentioned before that it looks like texture is going to be the next big thing. I see a lot of quilting, appliques, open knit, lace, crochet and crepe or waffle style fabrics coming in. Today I have an open knit top with a soft peplum shape that I picked up in Penneys recently. It is totally see through so I would suggest a top underneath. The plain white vest top I have on is also from Penneys.
This skirt is from Closet and it kind of fits in with another trend I am noticing; fish tail skirts. So a true fish tail skirt would be a pencil (or wiggle) skirt about knee length or a bit longer and it kicks out at the hem like the one I have on here. While my skirt isn’t really long enough for this trend its close enough for me to feel like I am wearing a current style without spending any more money. With things in and out of style so fast, sometimes it’s worth looking to see if anything you already have could work. That way you can wait to see if it’s something that will keep coming back into fashion before you spend your cash on something new.
Keeping it monochrome the shoes are from New Look. I was tempted, as I usually am when wearing monochrome, to wear bold coloured shoes but stuck with the black in the end because these shoes have gold on the heels which ties in with the gold zips on the skirt.
The necklace is from Parfois. As usual I always think a round neck top needs a little something and this necklace ties in nicely with my monochrome theme for this outfit.
Have you noticed the textured clothing and fish tail skirts in any shops yet?
