There are so many textures that one can play with when it comes to clothing, that’s the amusing and electrifying part of styling outfits. This seems to be the new trend as well, as fashion designers this past fashion month have presented collections with materials such as velvet, leather, silk, patent, and suede. It’s fairly simple to incorporate a different fabric – like a statement patent skirt – in your closet than the plain old cotton or acrylic (although there’s nothing wrong with that), but why not shake it up a little? It’s definitely a fantastic way to make one’s outfit more dynamic and fun.
I don’t believe in ‘following trends’, rather in just dressing how you want. Obviously, there are ways in which one is influenced and attracted to something that many people have been wearing, but in our day it’s hard not to be influenced when the presence of social media is all-revolving. If you really like the trend, then invest in a statement piece and wear it how you would wear it, not how anyone else would. Be different, but be yourself – that’s the key in making an impression.
