Become That Trendy Friend

*Collaborative post.

Everyone has a trendy friend. The one that could literally put on a bin bag and pull it off. Well, that might have been a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point. When you’re not that trendy friend, you honestly do feel like you can’t put an outfit together without going through a whole evening of stress. But there’s one big key to this here. A lot of it comes from self confidence, and the image you build up of yourself.

You’ve got that one trendy friend, because they’ve always been into their fashion and showing it off. So no matter what they wear, you can’t help but feel like they look amazing. But you could be the same, as long as you know what’s on trend at the minute, and that you have a little self confidence. But self confidence is one of the biggest things that people seem to lack, and that’s where it becomes so hard to find something that you think suits you, because nothing seems to suit you in your own mind. So this article is going to be all about making you that trendy friend.

We’re going to give you some tips to make you more self confident, show you what’s on trend at the minute, and throw in a bit of a beauty tip to help make you feel amazing! Keep on reading to find out more…

Self Confidence Tips

So, before you think about what clothes you’re going to wear, and what might suit you, you’re going to have to address some of these insecurities that you have. It’s so bad that so many of us are walking around right now, thinking about what people might think about us. Or how we start our day by looking in the mirror, and wondering why we were made the way we are. It’s crazy to think this, because every human is different. Every single person has a flaw that they hate, yet due to social media and all of the influencers who look perfect on there, we’re made to believe we shouldn’t have a flaw at all. But the truth is, if you were to see half of the people up close, you wouldn’t be thinking what you are now.

Instagram is so fake and filtered. So rather than starting your day by looking in the mirror and thinking eurgh, start it by thinking about how beautiful you are in your own way. If you have that confidence to carry around with you, you’re already so much more attractive than half of the people you see on Instagram and other social media platforms! If you do feel like you have something that you really want to work on, perhaps you really want to tone up for the summer, then dig deep and find the motivation to do it. We’re so good as humans at wanting a better figure, better hair, or better anything, but procrastinating around the subject!

 

The Top Summer Fashion Trends

Summer fashion is the best kind of fashion. Some of you might disagree with this and prefer all of the warm winter wear, but we can’t help but feel that summer fashion brings out a different side of people.  But if you want to be that trendy friend, you’re going to need some top trend tips. Tip number one, summer dresses are always going to be in. There’s nothing better than going out on a hot summer’s day, with your summer dress on, and just loving life. They’re so easy to accessorise with, and the best part is it goes so well with trainers.

Nike air force 1’s are really on trend at the minute, and there’s so many different styles that you could go for. You can see more nike air force 1 on the internet than you would in the shop, so get browsing! A nice simple summer dress, some sunglasses, and a little bag is all that’s needed to complete that trendy look. Simple and effortless is the way forward this summer!

Get Your Spring Fashion Essentials

Like I said, I went shopping for some spring fashion essentials the other day. I got some pairs of spring floral trousers, leggings and some blouses as well. The weather has been so warm here, and I needed some new pairs of trousers to stay cool and comfy. Getting your spring fashion essentials should be the first thing you to get ready for the new season in style. Here are some items you could go shopping for to get your wardrobe trendy –

 

  • Maxi Skirts and Sundresses – These are super comfy to wear and they are usually very easy to style. I have a few in my wardrobe at the moment and I wear them so much. They are just want you need to have on when the weather gets dead warm. Go for pieces in spring prints like florals, stripes and polka dots.

 

  • Shorts – I love having a few pair of shorts in my wardrobe for spring and summer. They come in very handy for when it gets really warm.

 

  • Sandals – It is always good to get a few pairs of sandals and flip flops for the spring/summer season. I have been wearing flip-flops all week because it has been really warm here in Cheshire. If there is one thing you shop for this season, it should be some new pairs of sandals. A good pair of sandals came change the whole look of an outfit.

 

  • Cardigans – You should have light cardigans in your wardrobe for when the days or nights get a little chilly, and you need a light coverup. Having a few in bright colours would definitely come in handy.

 

  • Sleeveless Tops and Colourful Accessories – These are definitely spring staples to have if you want to stay stylish. The right accessories can wake up any outfit and spring is all about bright colours, so ensure you go for bright colourful accessories. Sleeveless tops are just what you need to have on when the weather gets too warm and you need to stay decent.

Stick To Light Layers

Spring is a season for light layers. So ditch the heavy coats, cardigans and the rest of your autumn/winter clothing. In other to be trendy and comfy, you need to wear breathable fabrics in bright colours. Depending on where you live, light layers should work just for fine for you this season. A light cardigan may come in handy when the temperature drops and if it doesn’t, it is easy to pop it in a bag or around your was it. I like to mix and match pieces in with different prints and texture to create a stylish look.

 

Add Bright Accessories

Another fashion tip for spring is adding bright accessories. Accessories have the power to make or break any look. They are usually cheaper to invest in, so if you are on a budget but want to look trendy, you can update your accessories collection. The right accessories can easily switch up a basic look, so don’t underestimate the power of accessories. You can try updating your look with a floral scarf, or a bright coloured pair of sandals.

How to style an outfit for special occasions

When it comes to special occasions like weddings and birthdays, you have to make sure you get your outfit right. The last thing you want is to go over dressed and annoy the celebrant or go under dressed and looks scruffy. Here are some fashion and style tips you may find useful when styling an outfit for a special occasion.

Stick to the dress code

Always ensure you find out what the dress code is before styling your outfit. You don’t want to wear a pair of jeans or a denim skirt to a black tie event. Make sure you also check for colour codes just incase. The key to dressing to special occasions is to look smart and decent. That usually works. You can find lots of inspiration on Pinterest.

 

Don’t upstage the celebrant

Like I previously mentioned, upstaging the bride/celebrant won’t do you any favours so make sure you don’t go over dressed. Stick to the dress code and colour codes, and ensure you don’t wear any over the top clothing or accessories. You don’t want the attention on you on the celebrant’s special day. For example, don’t wear a white dress to a wedding unless it is a background colour to a pattern.

 

Dress in tune with the seasons

Pay attention to the seasonal shades of fashion and style your outfit in those shades in mind. For example, dark berry colours mixed with blacks and greys go well in the winter season. So you could opt for a berry dress (ensure colours are in line with the dress codes if any) with black accessories.

 

Have a stylish cover up at the ready

Wearing a strapless dress is all well and good until it gets chilly. Have a stylish cover up at the ready will be a life saver. So make sure you have one.

 

Get a winter coat

If you are attending the event in winter, ensure you have a good statement coat ready. You don’t want to hide your stunning outfit under an ugly coat. Go for a lovely striking coat in a block colour that suits your outfit.

 

The right heels

You should opt for shoes/sandals that go well with your outfit and the event. It is more stylish to wear a dress with a pair of heels rather than flats, but go for the right type of heel for you. You need to be able to walk properly in them and feel comfortable.

 

What are your thoughts? Which do you pay attention to the most when it comes to styling an outfit for special occasions?
