Sears Kenmore has teamed up with TwitterMoms and asked me to share my top 10 tips for weaving the seasons latest runway trends into my original day-to-day style. Whew that is a mouth full and that is a challenge that I am willing to take on!
I like to think that I am thrify and yet still trendy at the same time. I like to dress in day-to-day comfort but I also like to look trendy while doing so. I have found a few ways to be trendy and yet remain thrifty at the same time. I will share some of those tips with you.
My 10 tips for being trendy on a day-to-day basis are below:
1. Know what's hot! To see what the latest trends are, I like to browse fashion magazines. I like to see what colors are in and I like to know what type of jeans are in style for the upcomming season.
2. Know what's not hot! This is a must! You definately need to know what not to wear. Enough said about that one!
3. Trendy outwear makes a statement: I like to buy a nice and trendy jacket that I will wear all season long. I feel that a trendy jacket makes a statement about who I am. I also feel that a jacket is an investment that will pay for itself. It is something that can be worn daily and it doesn't need a lot of laundering. This is an item that I will choose after looking at fashion magazines. I will pick a style and color that is trendy and flattering for me and then I will seek it out while shopping.
4. Trendy shoes will take you far! I like to invest in a nice pair of in style shoes. Shoes are another item that you will get a lot of miles out of. I don't mind paying a price for an item that I will use and enjoy all season long. Depending on trends, I like to choose a solid color like brown or black for shoes. They will match most of my day-to-day outfits nicely.
5. Shop in my own closet: Once I have seen what trends and colors are in, I will take a peek into my own closet and see what I have there. If I find something that is a good color and a good style then I will pull it to the front of my closet. If it's not something that I will wear day-to-day then I will leave it at the back of the closet for weekend clothes.
6. Purses Purses Purses! This topic says it all. A nice and trendy purse is a must have for any girl! A good purse will look good and last you a long time too. Purses are worth updating! You use it on a daily basis and you want it to look good.
7. Shop sales: I like to shop sales racks. I find that a lot of items will be trendy for a few years in a row. You can almost always find nice pants on clearnace and you can rock them out with your trendy shoes, jacket and purse!
8. Comfort: I like to dress comfortably. I try on all of my new purchases before I leave the store with them. I want my clothes to fit good and to look trendy at the same time. How can I smile if I don't feel good because my clothes are too tight?
9. Mix and match: I like to mix and match some of my older clothes with new purchases. I find that this is a fun way to be trendy, comfortable and thrifty at the same time.
10. Own your look: If you feel good, then you will look good. If you are comfortable with your style and you own your look, it will show on the outside.
