Fashion, art, and design will continuously evolve, but the word trend guilts some people into constantly buying the next new thing. I notice trends to remain current, but that doesn’t mean I follow fads. The keyword is ‘fad.’ Bellbottoms and platform shoes are a fad. I won’t be embracing that look again! However, the trend of jeans with a straight leg with slight fullness flatters and fits my style personality.
The core of my style has always included a love for timeless classic fashions, architecture, and home decor. It is what I always return to and feel most comfortable with, but adapting to trends in fashion allows me to remain current. A trend may last for a decade or longer. A fad may last for six months. So I’m leaving the fads in the store, but I’ll happily incorporate a trend when it suits me.
A haircut was long overdue, so I visited my stylist to get a trim today. I wore slightly bootcut jeans as my nod to the trend for wider, longer pants. I’ll save my slim-fit ankle jeans for warmer weather. The other items in my look are more than a year old.
