  1. Eco-friendly outfits

There has been a lot of news about eco-friendly fashion. So it’s not much of a surprise that eco-friendly fashion will be a leading trend in 2019. As more people are moving towards being very conscious of the environment, more people will be stocking eco-friendly pieces in their wardrobe.

You may have seen silk and satin tops show up in some stores and even seen some people wearing them. But expect more of these next year as their popularity is bound to increase.

Silk and satin tops are usually sold in form of camisoles making it a great piece to layer with your jeans for a casual look or trousers for a more corporate look.

Pleated skirts have been known to be versatile pieces. 2019 seems like it will be a year of variety in the fashion scene. Pleated skirts have the ability to help you achieve comfort and still be chic at the same time.

How to Style Polka Dots this Spring

Polka dots are fast becoming a fashion statement. They add fun and playfulness to our outfits. As influencers and celebrities show up more in their polka dot ensembles, it’s only natural to expect more polka dot outfits this spring. So how will you style polka dots this spring?

It seems like the fashion conscious have caught a wind of how versatile polka dots outfits can be. Whether you wear them at formal occasions, to work or causal outings, polka dots have proven to be a must-have item in your wardrobe.

Since we’re anticipating more polka dots this season, here are ways to style them.

Pair polka dots with a solid coloured piece

This is an age-old unfailing rule when it comes to styling polka dot clothing items. Pair your polka dot top with solid coloured pattern-less bottoms, like a skirt or trousers and you can never go wrong.

The fashion favourite is the monochrome – black and white polka dots layered on solid black or solid white. Red polka dots are also a fashion favourite and if you stick to this rule you’ll have yourself a well-put together outfit.

 

Pair polka dots with other patterns

This may seem counter-intuitive with the first tip, but I have observed how 2018 fashion is tilting towards a bold and adventurous theme. And that includes styling with polka dots. Although it breaks the ancient rule of matching polka dots with solid colours, this combination adds a lot of creativity to your outfit.

Play around with pairing polka dots with other patterns like stripes or checks to add some adventure and edginess to your outfit.

 

Style with bright and cold colours

Polka dots do really well not only with the famous black and while. They work great with bright colours like yellow and orange which perfectly depicts the spring time.

Don’t be afraid to go bold and venture into more yellows, oranges, bright blues and pinks. Pair them with your polka dots pieces to add a lot of fun and playfulness with the bright and bold background. It works perfectly either way whether it is a bright top or bottom.

 

Embrace polka dot one-piece clothing

Spring has an easy laid back vibe which people express in their choice of clothing. A good example is easy to slip on clothing like maxi dresses and jumpsuits.

This is an ensemble not many women are comfortable pulling off because of the overwhelming number of polka dots. However, you can always break the pattern with a fashionable solid coloured hat, a pair of boots or heels, a waist belt or a clutch purse.

 

Compliment your outfit with polka dot accessories

Polka dots are not only fashionable with clothing items, they look amazing as accessories. Polka dots are always eye-catching so even a touch of polka dots can make your outfit stand out.

For low neck top, layer a polka dot scarf. If you’re wearing solid colours all through, compliment them with a polka dot handbag or clutch purse. Those are enough to inject fun into your outfits.

 

Layer over jeans

Another classic is complimenting a polka dot top with a pair of jeans. This combination never grows old. It’s relaxed and casual; just perfect for the springtime. You can also add more denim like a denim jacket over a polka dot top to nail that playful yet relaxed look.

Are You a Slave to Fashion? Here are 6 Ways to Stop Being One This Year.

Everyone has a different view when it comes to style. Although I love all things fashion, I do not allow the never ending trends get to me. I am not a slave to fashion, technology or anything. To me, that’s the unhealthiest place to be. Being fashionable ought to be fun and creative. If you have been a slave to fashion and you want to make a switch in 2018, here are 6 ways you can do that.

 

Realize that fashion trends don’t last

You know how it’s like when the latest outfit gets released and it becomes really popular, but then after a few days or weeks the hype fizzles out? That’s how it is in the fashion industry.

Today one outfit is fashionable and everybody wants to wear it and the next day it gets outdated. Going after the latest fashion trends is like chasing the wind. You can never catch it. It is OK to go after trends you have an interest in but don’t get carried away with the endless stream.

Choose only what feels comfortable

What’s fashionable is not always comfortable. Sometimes they are too tight or too revealing or too inconsistent with your personal style. Extremely fashion conscious people, most often than not, throw away comfort and focus on being trendy.

But when you think about what a terrible experience it is to dress uncomfortably for hours,  then you will know how unwise it is to compromise your comfort for being in style.

 

Define your own style

You are a unique being. Fashion is a medium of expression. You can define your own style that perfectly expresses your unique personality. There’s nothing like being able to choose what works best for you.

Fashion trends were created by people who followed what they believed and reflected it their own personal style. People loved it and adopted it as their own. Why not start your own trend instead of following someone else’s?

 

Embrace your individuality

Another way to get over being a slave to fashion is by embracing your individuality. We look up to magazines, what’s on social media and what we see on television. But the truth is that as an individual you have your own perceptions of what is fashionable.

You can be your own source of fashion ideas and inspiration. Yes, what you see in magazines, social media and television can give you inspiration but they should be used only as a means to awaken ideas that will help create your own kind of fashion trends.

 

Don’t be afraid to be creative

This is something that I love the most about fashion. It gives you the avenue to be creative. The combinations of outfits and layers you can come up with are endless. And most of all, mixing and matching clothes is fun. It’s something that I enjoy doing and I’m sure many do too.

 

Are you a slave to fashion?
