Have you ever gotten so completely sucked into a trend that it started taking over your wardrobe? I know I have. A few years ago when ruffles were everywhere, I became a total ruffle addict. I swear 5 days a week I was wearing something with ruffles on it. I don’t think I even noticed it until one of my friends made a comment to another friend about ruffles being my thing. As someone with a girly, but classic style, the ruffle trend was one I wholeheartedly embraced because it easily went along with my personal style. But, alas, trends fade and over time I was wearing less and less ruffles… When I saw this top, however, my ruffle loving self of a few years ago got so excited! I couldn’t resist picking it up.
While some trends, like ruffles, seamlessly go with my look, there are others like ripped jeans that don’t gel as well with my closet. In fact, this pair is my first ever pair of destroyed jeans. To rock the ripped jeans look all while staying true to my sense of style, I paired the jeans with a more feminine top and accessorized with pearls for an outfit that’s truly me. I think the best part about fashion is letting your personality shine through in what you wear- so don’t be afraid to take a trend and give it a look that’s all your own!
Your turn- What trend have you been wanting to make your own?
