When I think of the noughties, I think of the Britney Spears I'm a slave for you performance at the VMAs with the snake and that famous tropical sarong dress J Lo wore to the Grammy's with Puff Daddy. You know which one, we all wish we could pull that look off! Well, it seems the designers at NYFW wanted to take us down memory lane back to the noughties this season. Being inspired by that era the designers are bringing back thin oblong sunglasses, 'as seen on' Gigi and Bella. This was one trend I wasn't sure of the first time around and as much as I love these sisters, even they find it hard to pull it off in my opinion.
But another shock was the comeback of the low-slung waist jeans with a flared cuff. Honestly, I'm up for new trends and embrace them in my own way but maybe this time it's a step too far. I'm not young enough or have a flat enough stomach to embrace this one yet. All I can think about right now is embracing my warmer clothing and eating my body weight in comfort food. But like most, once I've seen the trend pop up on the high street I'm sure I'll buy into next season. After the Christmas weight will have been lost!
But for now I am embracing a denim trend I've seen for a while. The wide leg, raw edge skater boy jeans! I wasn't a skater as such when I was younger but I do love the fashion and fully intend to invest in more skater boy jeans. What's so great about these style of jeans is that they look even better with heels, adding an edge to your look. Here I have teamed them with this long sleeve embroidered ruffle top and this lovely oversized cardigan.
This is the first purchase of my winter warmers, already on the look it for a couple more.
With so much nod to the noughties how are you going to embrace it?
