Gianni Versace explains it so wisely, “Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are,
what you want to express by the way you dress, and the way to live.”
If all this wasn’t convincing enough for you, then let’s discuss why not to follow the fashion trends and how can you revive the fashion diva in you by staying the way you are.
Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. — Coco Chanel
Trends Don’t Last Forever
We all have experienced this situation that we buy an outfit we see fit perfectly on department store dress forms, assuming it to be chic and classy. In our opinion, everyone would notice us and turn their heads towards us. But actually, we get to know that those-clothes-are-so-last-season look, and we become the odd one out. It’s common to see that whatever was cool last season is, apparently, a rejected item this season.
And it’s TOTALLY OK because we aren’t celebrities who are having stylists with them round the clock to keep them updated with the ongoing trends.
Then, WHAT TO DO? à Spend wisely on the designer wear
We all know what quality most of the designer wears’ provide; it’s far better than the local ones. It makes you feel confident and cool. Moreover, it gives you high-end touch. Be wise. Instead of saving your designer shirts and tunics for events, give them a casual look by pairing them with jeans or simple skirts. It is a great way to look stylish with minimal effort.
Don’t compromise your comfort for fashion
If you love loose-fitting and baggy style clothes, don’t feel ashamed of it. Acknowledge and own it.
You don’t need to squeeze yourself up in tight clothing just to fit in. True style is an expression of a person’s personality. So don’t try to be something you are not.
Then how would you look stylish? à Wear combinations and mixes
Flaunt your solid-colored Palazzo pants and vibrant loose tops. They go so well together.
Ditch the oversized coats if you feel uncomfortable in it. It’s high time to spice up your dull wardrobe with leather jacket bikers, blazers, and cardigans. The extra warmth will be worth it.
Make your own Fashion Identity
According to a research study by Brigham Young University, Hawaii, Individuals use clothing to communicate their social identities to people.
Then what to do? à Don’t copy others
People who copy other people’s fashion identity eventually have no identity of their own.
Go with mistake-proof items
It’s safe and a great relief to buy those clothing items which are always in fashion.
What are they?
- Animal Prints
Be it on a bag or shoe animal prints like a few zebra stripes or tiger print works best everywhere. Brands like Michael Kors and Ann Taylor always incorporate them almost in every season.
- Leather Jackets
Leather Jackets are a year-round staple. Several brands like Leather Skin Shop are introducing them in lighter weights and solid colors. If you are on a hunt for chicest leather outerwear or leather accessories, call it your go-to store.
- White Jeans
It goes with anything and anywhere. You can pair it up with a casual tee or a designer shirt; it compliments both very well.
- Diamond Hoop Earrings

Celebs like Beyoncé wear them often.
It’s one of the modest wearing options meanwhile makes your look classy too. What else could you want? It’s not revealing at all and goes with any age bracket. Plus, whether you are skinny or curvy, it looks great on all sizes.
The Trends aren’t for Everyone
Understand the above-written statement and face it. Visualize how dull this world will look like if everyone is wearing the same clothing? Boring!
Then what to do? à Be confident in your skin Accept who you are and what you wear. It’s your reality.
As Alexander McQueen says it all, “It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style,
wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.”
The best thing about modern fashion is that there are numerous style styles for different tastes. And every style keeps evolving.
There’s something for everyone so don’t imitate anyone.
If you don’t want to show your skin, then don’t. The fact that every other girl is doing it shouldn’t compel you to follow any XYZ trend.
If you aren’t comfortable wearing something, physically and emotionally, then don’t. Stay true to YOU!
