This season I have felt a real struggle to find where my dress sense fits with this seasons trends. First world problems I know, but I have found most of the shops just too much. There is so much bling out there it's blinding. You can totally see the seventies and eighties decades have well and truly been brought back to life in fashion and pop culture. I've definitely thrown myself back into Stranger Things 2 and downloaded some classic eighties tunes for my commute to work but I feel that's where it ends for me.
With a lack of interest of blinging it up, it's made me really consider what to buy. I never want to bring to you something I'm not hundred percent sure that I love and more importantly want to recommend. So many other bloggers have embraced the trends and they suit the seventies era like Lucy Williams. But for me I now know my style and want to keep to this for the simple reason I don't want throw away clothes. Fast fashion is not what I want my wardrobe to be about, I've started to invest in pieces I see myself wearing season after season. That being said I really do feel if you want to buy into a trend it's all in the colour and shape.
For example these corduroy trousers. From these pics, you would never know I was wearing corduroy fabric and for me, I feel it's a good way to dip your toe into an old trend. I have in the past worn corduroy when it was cool back in the nineties. They were in a bright blue colour and I'm sure it was in a flare, lovely at the time but not a timeless piece. I think age can sometimes make you correct your mistakes, but I wouldn't change my nineties look because at the time I thought I looked cool!
Anyway here I have gone for dark base colours for the trousers and a slight sparkle lurex knitted high neck. Breaking it up nicely with this vintage blue denim jacket. I love this kind of colour palette and it's one I would happily wear time and time again. Here's to subtle takes on trends.
