Is it important to buy all the new fashion trends of the season? Have you ever wondered if you’d be tagged ‘fashionably outdated’ if you wear something that doesn’t belong to the current trends? Well, those are not the kind of thoughts that just come to your minds, I used to think quite a lot about such ‘fashionable’ thoughts as well! 🙂 Being a Fashion Blogger I need to be updated on the new fashion trends every season and I always make it a point to do so. But owning them all is as difficult for as most of you. I am after all a ‘real’ person with a ‘real’ budget and after paying my bills and running a house I am never left with a large chunk of money to go trend shopping every month!
I decided to work more on my personal style and started planning my outfits (for the blog or otherwise) in a way that is practical and at the same time fashionable! To be honest, fashion blogging helped me a lot in doing so.
I didn’t intend to address only the fashion bloggers through this post, because I have seen a lot of girls from the non-blogging world struggling with this shopping dilemma. A few months back I had posted an article about my favorite fall looks with shopping links for my readers to check out the products and shop if they wished to. Velvet slip dress was very much in that list and honestly I have been in love with this trend from the very beginning. The velvet slip dress that I am wearing in the post is sent to me by Zaful as a part of my collaboration with them. I really have to thank them because I might have kept postponing the idea of buying it any sooner!
What is my point? My point is that just because I didn’t wear a slip dress until now didn’t make me any less fashionable.
My point is that from my personal experience I can assure you, it’s not necessary to own every single piece from the new fashion trends, unless you want to!
As a fashion blogger or a fashion lover, identifying your personal style and feeling confident about it is what counts the most. The key pieces of the season are anyways going to be bought by a lot of bloggers and unless you come up with a distinctive way of styling it, you would end up looking like most of them. That is where having a strong personal style comes into play that any fashion lover should strive to work upon.
Yves Saint Laurent aptly put it “Fashion Fade, Style is Eternal”
However, that is entirely my personal thought on the topic. If you have a different opinion on shopping for the latest fashion trends of the season, do share it in the comment section below.
