5 Fashion Pieces I Hate

So these 5 fashion pieces I hate post has been a long time coming. I can eat and drink fashion and style. Dressing up makes me feel alive, confident and empowered. I enjoy playing dress up and my daughter does too! I guess the apple does not fall too far from the tree eh?

There are a few fashion pieces I don’t like, and there are some that I do have a love/hate relationship with. Here are a few of the fashion pieces I hate.

 

Harem pants

There was a time in the 80’s when harem pants were very popular. Years later they found their way back and are now in vogue kind of. Many women love them. They are comfortable and give a different perspective to style. I can’t stand them. They remind me of Aladdin! I don’t like the style of them at all, and I think it looks weird.

 

High-waist jeans

Apart from being really fashionable, high-waist jeans are a lifesaver for many women, especially those who don’t have really long legs. They help to elongate their legs and give people the impression that their proportions were well-distributed. Having said that, I am not a fan of high-waist jeans at all, and that is why I have none in my wardrobe. They remind me of mom jeans and I do not like those either. Plus I don’t think this fashion piece would do anything for my body shape.

 

Strapless tops and dresses

On those very hot summer days, strapless tops and dresses help us stay cool and look trendy at the same time. Now, I have a love and hate relationship with strapless tops and dresses. I admire them on others. I think they look good, depending on the design. But I rather go for pieces with straps. I just feel more comfortable and secure having the straps on.

 

Crop Tops

Even when I had a very flat belly, I was never a fan of crop tops. I found them very childish and not befitting. I do admire crop tops on others sometimes, but it is not a fashion piece I can ever see myself wearing.

 

Shapeless long dresses

Maxi dresses are lovely and very comfortable fashion pieces. They can make us look taller and feel really elegant in them, but I find them unflattering and shapeless. I feel them swallow me up!

How Fashion Influences Interior Design

Fashion is a world of colour, styles and creativity. The fashion pieces and accessories designed every season makes me feel so grateful that innovation never dies.

For as long as I can remember, I have had an interest in fashion and interior design. I am so enthralled by the beauty and creativity in interior design. As I flipped through fashion and home magazines, I noticed something phenomenal:  The fashion trends and the trends of interior design were almost the same.

It’s so fascinating how fashion and interior design have so much in common in terms of what’s trending and what’s not. They meet at a tangent on several occasions.

It’s hard to believe how fashion can influence interior design. Here are some reasons to explain the relationship between fashion and interior design.

 

The seasons dictate the trends

Just the way we divide the year into seasons, in the fashion industry the year is divided into 4 different seasons: winter, spring, summer and autumn or fall. Fashion designers draw their inspiration from these seasons. They get ideas from the changes in weather, the colours outside and how people behave during those seasons.

Fashion designers pour their ideas into their sketches which then come to life on the runway. In the same way, interior decorators also get inspired by what they see around them. As the season changes so do their design ideas to suit the changes they see outside. They recreate what they see outside in the rooms they decorate.

Inspiration from social media

Everything is on social media these days. People generally engage with pictures better than they do with written content. That’s why you see more people upload all sorts of pictures, most especially what they or other people wear, for everyone to consume.

What this means is that as you or any other person uploads pictures of outfits on social media, you are showcasing a fashion designer’s creation. In fact, many fashion designers upload their creations on social media for their fans to appreciate.

Just the same way you’re on social media there are thousands of interior designers there as well. These interior designers get inspired by what people wear and what’s trending in fashion and try to recreate this in their work.

 

Style personified

I can confidently say that the first source of inspiration for many creatives is people. When you observe people, you notice the way they dress and the way they live their lives. We express ourselves in the way we dress. This is how we speak our mood or how our activities will be like.

Fashion designers try to capture the possible moods, our beliefs and concerns in the outfits they design. Consequently, when interior designers watch us express ourselves in our outfits, they pick up what we try to communicate and mirror them in the homes. with the furniture and in the arrangements.

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for some time, you would know all about what collaborations I have worked on and what I have been up to really. It has been an extremely busy year, and that I am forever grateful for.

I am currently working with GymCube on getting my energy levels up, and I am also working on getting my body where I need it to be. I am currently loving the 7 Day Kick Start Plan. It is so motivating and the website is super easy to navigate. You can join me on my fitness journey. Go have a look on the GymCube website and decide on the workout plan you need.

I took these photos the other day and forgot all about them. The top is a new wardrobe addition. I got it online some weeks ago, and I have worn it a few times already. I love how comfy it is. It is also great for the layering season upon us, and it blends into my wardrobe beautifully. I love it so much! Every other piece/accessory is a Goldie but oldie.
