For years I bought fashion magazines. Especially, the spring and fall 5lb editions. I would pour over them trying to comprehend what the trends for the next season were going to be. How could I possibly not get it? It was right in front of me. Why was it so unclear? What eludes me?
The bottom line is trends are confusing. When you peruse the web you will be bom-blasted with very thin girls wearing clothes that have no place in any normal woman’s life. What I have learned from blogging is to just take one little, tiny piece of a trend and work it into your style. (OK maybe I do go a little overboard on a trend that I really like) So just try to pick one thing from each category and give it a shot. Chances are you can shop your own closet or thrift it for a trial run. If it works for you make the leap. If it doesn’t pick another and just remember, never, ever quit trying to be the best you can be.
By the way. Wouldn’t It be a hoot to see all of these mixed up in one outfit? I wouldn’t know if I was supposed to go to bed, go running, do sit ups or put on my damn anorak! I think I would be laughing so hard tears would be running down my legs!!!
Here is a list of the current 2012 spring trends that I complied from a few Google searches. I didn't think it was necessary to include photos. After all we can all Google them and I'm still wearing muck lucks and fluffy pants.
I look forward to starting up my Trending Through the decades series. I think between running out of fall/winter trends and just having a crazy, busy life I let it go for a while. Hopefully I will get my mojo back soon and start up with a spring fling!
