JUST SAY NO/MAYBE to TRENDS | Alexandra Stylist | Personal Wardrobe Stylist



What I feel is so wrong with the fashion world is this ever churning need to discover/uncover/reinvent trends that are then force fed the general public. 80’s neon colors, mini skirts, peasants skirts, baby doll dresses, ect ect ect! Women each have different shapes and coloring-so what may be one woman’s answer to her body imbalances may be a fashion faux pas on another. For example a high waist espresso pencil skirt looks amazing on me because I have a long torso, short legs, an hourglass shape, and red autumn color palette. Put the same skirt on a woman with long legs, inverted triangle shape (wider in the upper half than lower), and soft summer coloring and you have a four alarm fashion emergency.

Yves Saint Laurent said it best, “Fashions fade, Style is eternal” And Coco Chanel said, ” The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you!”

So I urge you to find out and explore your own body-it’s star features and it’s challenges with the help of a stylist if you can. Ask yourself-does this trend serve me? In the long run it will save you time, energy and money.
