UNDERSTANDING FASHION TRENDS: IT IS ABOUT EMBRACING OUR INDIVIDUALITY...

What are FASHION TRENDS? One can identify a FASHION TREND when it is seen repeatedly in the prêt-à-porter runways during the fashion weeks… Once high-fashion designers simultaneously take and develop an ‘idea’ consistently in their collections, a TREND has appeared. 

Immediately, the fast-fashion industry will make sure fashion lovers get what they desire; meaning TRENDS to enjoy… What else are we supposed to do, right?

But before making a TREND our own, we must understand that to ABSORB it the ‘fabulous way’, we must INTERPRET and ADAPT IT to our ‘true essence’ and life. 
Here some ultimate advices to shine our way… Because it is always about EMBRACING OUR INDIVIDUALITY:

* STYLE is everything… As our beloved madame Vreeland used to say; and it cannot be truer. Sit face-to-face with yourself. Who are you? How would the best version of yourself look, behave and feel like? Well, that’s it! That is what your TRUE STYLE is all about! It has to do with your essence.

* Please, forget about the ‘IT BAG’, the ‘IT SHOES’, etc… You do not want to look like everyone else; because you are not like everyone else! BEING UNIQUE is our greatest gift! If you LOVE a trendy piece and you can afford it, buy it; no matter what others are buying or doing.

* Consider your PERSONALITY, LIFESTYLE & GENUINE TASTES. The TRENDS that you wear are always related to who you are as a whole. Never go underdressed, never go overdressed! And always look impeccable, even if you are the laid-back kind of beauty.

* NEVER OVERDO IT. If you are ah-doring a TREND, or many of them; take one at a time (two maximum) and make it your own. The no-brainer for GREAT DRESSING is to build your outfit around a protagonist piece; let’s say those superb multicolored heels, or that gorgeous XXL necklace that has turned your world upside down. Then, the rest should be kept pretty simple.

* Be aware of your body type, skin tone, height, age etc… You want to look beautiful, and supreme beauty always comes with proportion and balance. Look in the mirror and be honest with yourself. Remember what our dear Coco used to say; vulgarity is the opposite of luxury and great taste!

* Last but not least, ideally our trendy looks should be perceived as EFFORTLESS (no matter how long you take to look that gorgeous!). The more natural you look, the more believable and authentic you appear! Stay true!

BE BEAUTIFUL, BE KIND, BE THOUGHTFUL, BE YOURSELF!

EMBRACE YOUR INDIVIDUALITY… HAPPY NEW YEAR!

With love,
