well, we have to start with a great "classic" wardrobe to start with. nice pants, nice white shirts, nice black skirts, pearl chokers etc...then i choose to update my wardrobe with little trends here and there....i fell in love with the marc jacobs edwardian denim jacket the first time i saw it, so i had to save up for it. not everything in my closet is expensive or trendy. i actually wait for sales to get most of my trendy stuff. i mean, come on...who can afford a dress from Chloe for full price? well not me, maybe Gwyneth Paltrow or Kate Moss. Like i would never pair my edwardian tops with frilly skirts because that's just way too trendy for me...you're going to look too trying hard like you want to be one of those models strutting down bryant park. i would wear the blouse with nice black pants. and my number one fashion secret, go to the secondary lines of the top designers!!! Marc by Marc Jacobs is MJ's smash secondary lines that even the Boardman and Lauder sisters are lining up for! they are not THAT expensive and looks very very hip and classic at the same time.how do you decide what particular trends you want to incorporate with yoyur basics or classics? kasi diba medyo sayang if you splurge on a season's trends then after a month or two passe' na sya. di ka nanghihinayang?
I live in a place where there are 4 distinct seasons, so i am forced to change my look or wardrobe every so often. as for naghihinayang, well if i spent more than 400 dollars for one ultra trendy look, then yes, i would probably jump off the building. but chances are, i'm very picky and i do look for discounts Being fashion forward doesn't mean looking like Jolina Magdangal or something like that, it's incorporating looks of the season with very basic, classic clothes.
nice black men's trousers(the wide leg ones) or a superbly tailored black skirt or if you're daring enough or lean enough, an electric pleated black skirt.I also have a black and white striped top, aside from jeans and capris, what can I pair it with?
