Keeping up with trends

Heyyyyy guys hope you are all well. Now i want to talk about trends and i for one love keeping up with what’s happening and what’s trending. It’s one of those things that you don’t want to miss out on because everyone has got that certain item and you want to be in that crowd that have it.

Now as most people who follow me on my socials know (follow me on my socials if your not yours not ;-)) i am a mummy of 4! Which includes two 10 months old twins and as much as i would like to always buy the latest trends i can’t afford to as my money is more aimed at different things like school trips, groceries, uniforms, car payments, nappies etc.

I have come to realise that we as trend lovers put ourselves under so much pressure to have the latest things to the point where some people go into debt just to have that designer dress or bag. I always do this thing where i go online shopping and fill my basket knowing i don’t have the money to begin with lol only to look at the total price and just basically coming off the page feeling down as i can’t get what i want but i get over it quite quickly though some people can’t help it and they end up using money they don’t have.

I have always tried to find more affordable ways to get what i need, for example i tend to always shop in Primark as they are more affordable, i also try to get some stuff second hand. Recently i came across a website called Shein and apparently am late on this as alot of people know about it. Its a women’s clothes website in Asia but i think they also have a warehouse in UK and when i tell you they are affordable? They are sooooo affordable. You can get a jumper for £2! Or a dress for £4! I did not believe it at first but when my order came and they fit well? i was one happy woman.

The point is we really need to stop putting so much pressure on ourselves on keeping up appearances and buying things we can’t afford. There so many ways to keep up with the trends without breaking the bank and the majority of the times the new season trends are stuff we already have as they just keep repeating them over the years.

So how do you keep up with the trends?

The top 8 fashion winter trends for 2018/19

So sadly winter will be with us in about 2/3 months ;-( and this is the time to start shopping for the jackets, jumpers, winter boots etc. The new Autumn and winter looks are out on runways and her are the top 10 trends to look out for and splash your cash on.

1   ANIMAL PRINT

I guess I will be wearing my green animal print pencil skirt in winter too, though I will be adding boots to the outfit instead of sandles. Animal print is one of those styles which can never go out of fashion and when you wear it you just feel  like you run things and it makes you stand out from the crowd.

2   LEATHER DRESS 

I have a leather dress I wore about 4 years ago and I thought I might never wear it again as I thought wearing leather as a dress was out of style but I guess not and I was actually thinking of throwing it out!. wearing a leather skirt or pants give you that rock chick, bad ass look that makes you feel powerful and raunchy, now we can also rock a leather dress and feel like we own the side walk. oh yessss strut girls.

3   CAPE

Capes are so versatile that you can wear them in almost any season and you can replace your jacket for them, they are extra warm for winter days, warm enough for those cold spring days or when the weather is like UK weather( unlike these last fews summer weeks which have been crazy hot) you can also use them on summer nights.

5   TWEED

I remember wearing the tweed school girl skirt back in 2000 and something which was inspired by Britney spears when she wore one in her first music video. Am sure every girl had one of those skirts and every where you looked someone was wearing one, I wonder if that skirt will ever come back in style. Tweed is so versatile that you can wear it with anything from jeans to a dress etc.

6   PLEATS

I love pleats because they can give those of us who don’t have hips some some type of front shape. They also move with your body so we are able to hide our bumps and you are able to style them with snicker or heels.
