Flashy trends are usually pretty hard to pull off, especially if you don’t even try to pretend that you like half of Rihanna’s or Rita Ora’s outfits regardless of how unique or fashion-forward they may be. This, however, doesn’t mean you have to give up a trend that speaks to you or that you can’t pull it off with class and less than a celebrity-worthy closet. Yup, flashy trends can look great even on us normal girls and these following few are definitely worth experimenting with:
Baroque-inspired jacquard pieces most certainly are one of those flashy trends you may feel reluctant to try. I couldn’t blame you – the era in question was gaudy enough as it is, there’s no need to bring it back to life by dressing like vintage furniture! Think again, though – a pair of black cropped slacks or even a neutral but textured blazer can look really classy and help you inject a little dose of runway glam into your monochromatic, classic ensembles. You won’t even have to step out of your comfort zone and force yourself to experiment with colors because, hey, when it comes to freshening things up, textures work just as well as colors!
