All Buttoned Up

As much as I like to think I don’t spend my days aimlessly scrolling through Instagram, because I really don’t, every once in a while I’ll do some Insta-exploring (although I always seem to end up on someone’s account who has 1+ million followers, but they have no bio and I’ve never even heard of them). I digress, though. This is not about Instagram stalking. It’s about what one may discover is a trend when one wasn’t aware this was a trend in the first place (at least according to every trend report that comes out twice a year…sometimes four times if we’re really feeling Pre-Fall or Resort). It’s time to get all buttoned up, my friends. It’s going to be a wild ride.

Spring Trends? Google It

Typically, we get our trend reports from blogs, magazines, and the occasional figure-them-out-yourself via Style.com (RIP) but would you ever trust a search engine? Google knows what’s in and what’s out better than anyone else because it’s actually what people are searching…or not searching. So let’s see if any of these trends are in your search history…

Denim Days

I don’t know how it happened but it seems like a denim explosion is upon us. Not black denim, not white denim…just good old fashion blue jeans. When you think of the word, denim…what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Pants / jeans, right? (I’ll also accept the answer of Britney and Justin circa 2001). But there’s so much more to this classic material (that just so happens to be extra trendy right now) than a pair of pants…

It’s A Match!

Today’s topic of discussion is no new trend (like Drake saying “no new friends” but replace friends with trends…you feel me?) The matching set is something our mothers wore back in the day, when people actually bought “outfits.” Then for so long, any sort of matching looked like you were trying too hard (especially if there’s any pairing of a red bag with red shoes…something I despise to this day). Now there’s this new way of matching, and it seems to be sticking around for quite a while.
