Fashion Trends ~ My Three Favorites

Ah yes, fashion trends. I’m not typically a huge trend follower. I probably ignore more trends than I pick up on. Harem pants? No thanks. I dont need to look like I’m wearing a diaper at the age of 25. Color blocking? Eeeeps, one bright color scares me enough!! But I suppose there are a few trends this spring that I’ve been a fan of. Not all of these are new trends, some are goodies we have going strong from past seasons!
Here are the main ones that I’m loving:

1) Mint… such a stunning color!! I’d say its universally flattering, but that’s a lie… I look like crap in it, haha!! But I am loving it for accessories! I just picked up the OPI color ‘Cartwheels on the Catwalk‘ and I absolutely love it!! I’m wearing it right now, actually. I’m hoping to pick up a few more cute accessories, or perhaps some cute mint shoes!!

2) Cropped pants… thank goodness for this trend!! I’ve been wearing 3/4 length pants for almost the past year now and could not be happier about it. First off, I love not having to hem pants (just rolling them up!!). I also think that if pants need to be skinny, I like them above the ankle. It just feels a little less constricting. And you get to emphasize pretty shoes at the same time!! Added bonus: work appropriate (for me, at least).

3) Textures… thick lace, crochet, eyelet, chunky knits… I love it all!!! This is a great way to add some work-appropriate fun to the wardrobe!! A chunky sweater looks amazing paired with some slim skinny pants. Or maybe a little lace tail peaking out from under a conservative sweater. And my gosh, how stunning is that mermaid dress below?!?! Where is a few extra $$$$ when you need it, lol!!

Top 1: Chloe (here); Top 2: Dolce & Gabbana (here); Top 3: Dries Van Noten (here); Top 4: Malandrino (here); Top 5: ??? Dress: Alexander McQueen (here); Shorts: Ana Sui (here); Skirt 1: Delias (here); Skirt 2: Nina Ricci (here)
