I wouldn’t consider myself a “trendy” dresser. I am usually about dressing for my body type, finding investment pieces that I can wear for work and transition, plus mixed in with some feminine/boho vibes. I tend not to dress for the hot trend of the moment and try to stick with pieces that will last over many seasons and trends. So I’ve been seeing a lot of the same “trends” making their way full circle again and I will let you know. I am not digging them. You will not see me wearing them. No offense to anyone who is currently rocking them but they will not be making their way into my closet.
Spring Trends You Won’t Catch me Wearing
The Bandana Scarf Wrapped Around the Neck Trend
I’m sorry. Every single time I see this, I think of two things. One, what gang affiliation is that apart of. Two, you seriously couldn’t have found anything else more fashionable in your closet to accessorize with? I mean, there are so many beautiful necklaces and scarfs that are out there. You are really going to tell me that wrapping one of those bandanas I used to fold up 18 times in a row to make a headband that I slicked my bangs back with for field hockey when I was 12. That is what is trendy? I will pass on this trend. Instead, I will continue to accent my purses or outfits with fun and colorful tassel scarfs and prints because I am down with that.
I just can’t behind this. It reminds me of the plastic zigzag chokers that I used to stretch around my poor throat and you know I rocked one on my upper arm back in those early teen years. Right around the time I thought pink frosted lipgloss was cool as well. I don’t care if it’s dainty or layered. I am not wearing a choker again. That is a 90’s fashion trend that can stay buried with the butterfly hair clips.
Are you seeing a trend here yet? All these things that are coming back, I used to wear when I was 12. I was very awkward during those years and just like the memories of 7th grade, I would like those fashion trends to continue to be buried. I remember BEGGING my mother to buy me a pair of Tommy Hilfiger overalls from the outlet. They were hideous. No shape and a light wash. I thought I was the coolest rocking those designer label overalls. I can’t even remember how I styled them but I’m sure it was terrible. I don’t care if the overalls now are tapered, distressed, “lightened up” for the Summer. I want nothing to do with them. You will never see me rocking overalls on here, I promise.
Wide Leg 3/4 Length Pants
I’m okay that flares are back. I actually really like a good quality pair of fitted flares. What I do not like, is this weird trend of flares that are 3/4 length and don’t hit your ankles. Like who are those flattering on? I can’t think of anybody. Why do they need to be cropped? Are you wearing them with boots? Isn’t this Spring time fashion? I’m very confused by this trend. It is also way too dangerous close to the gaucho pants trend, that never needs to come back again.
I love me some 70’s trends but I just can’t get behind the circle sunglasses. I just hate the way they look on my face and I feel like it’s not a good investment to dump any money into an expensive pair. A cheapie pair from F21 sure but even then I’m just not feeling it. I do really love the two tone aviators that are out now. This Dior pair is $600 but I like my $16 option here much better.
Things You Will See me Wearing
Give me all the bright colors, tassels, distressed, florals, cutouts, fringe, and feminine pieces. Of course I love all the off the shoulder everything.
Make sure you hit up the Nordstrom Half yearly sale! This is one of my favorite Spring sales because they deeply discount the designer pieces. Sizes sell out quickly, so don’t hesitate. These basic black pump Jimmy Choo are 40% off and fully stocked with sizes. I have these perfect nude wedges, they are insanely comfy and a great price point. Everyone talks about this tunic and how it works for everything. I love the grey and cream especially for that price. I ordered these caged heels and can’t wait to get them. I have these espadrilles and they are my absolute fav. This maxi dress always gets fabulous reviews.
