Focusing mainly on trends can make you lose your personal style and become a fashion victim.
It is no surprise that some of the things which flatter your figure the most may not be the trendiest. Your skinnies can be hot, but a soft A-line skirt, or just a perfect neckline or simple, elegant lines can make you look your best by emphasizing your femininity and decolletage.
While colour blocking can be trendy, going monochromatic from the neck down can give maximum flattery. You don’t have to wear head-to-toe black to get the chic effect, although darker colours are the most slimming.
Your Little Black Dress, LBD can take you anywhere. You can go for a head-to-toe chic black look or add a pop of colour to your little black dress, or add a leather jacket to help elevate your look.
But personal style goes way beyond just the basics. You can break a few so-called fashion rules along the way to step out in a classic but sassy versatile style.
Building a timeless wardrobe doesn’t mean you can’t try out new trends, you just have to learn when to blend in or not.
