Sometimes you find a trend you love and you don’t know how to wear it. Or sometimes, you see one example of how to wear it, but don’t know how to make it your own. Sometimes you love about a million trends. Sometimes it is just overwhelming.
That is part of why I do the NoH Does posts on Saturdays. This series gives people an opportunity to share how they interpret a trend, while providing inspiration for the rest of us.
But typically that is just a single trend. It can be much more challenging to incorporate several trends together. You can so easily start to look over the top (and NOT in a good way) or inauthentic (like your trying too hard). And it can be extra challenging to make the look your own. After all- you are an individual!
That doesn’t mean wearing several trends isn’t possible! And to prove it, I grabbed a couple street style images from the Fall 2011 Couture shows this past week. Here some stylish ladies pull off the multiple trends flawlessly.
Both looks contain bold color combos, chain crossbody bags and flowy blouses, some of the season’s most popular elements. But each lady makes the look her own. Whether a bold skirt paired with a deep blue top or a more subdued blouse accented by bright yellow pants and an eye-catching bag- these looks work.
I think the key in these looks is keeping the jewelry to a minimum and focusing on solids instead of prints. However, that doesn’t mean that the looks are boring. Both have details that up the ante (open back/detailed waistband). And it is these details that make the looks personal and special, while still embracing some of the most popular trends.
What are your feelings about wearing multiple trends? How do you make them personal?
