Fashion is Fashion is Fashion.
It can be anything it wants to, it can be hit....or miss... and there are opinions, LOADS of opinions. You could love something and the rest of the world could hate it. Or (as I am guilty of) we can hate something for so long, claiming it to be the most hideous of ideas/thoughts/trends and then after seeing a few people rock it the proper way (yes there can be in improper way) you are thinking "how the heck did I hate that?"
The two current trends that I was left saying "WTF" after first hearing about them were the MC Hammer pants and Jumpsuits. I thought for sure I was stuck in 70s/80s hell. But I have seen some very good looking outfits with both these trends (also the combination of a jumpsuit with the harem styled bottoms) and am now on a desperate hunt for both these items. Unfortunately, at the moment, every pair of harem pants I put on, look terrible or just not *quite* right. Same goes for the jumpers, they look fabulous hanging up and once I try them on they look terrible. This happens quite a lot to me which makes shopping a very frustrating event. But I will continue to look! I will be heading downtown Toronto tomorrow with some of my girls so they are going to help me on my desperate search.
For the jumpsuit of my dreams it CANNOT be black. I want something that is bright (without being all flowery which seems to be the "it" pattern) but not necessarily a solid colour because that would require me to get a funky coloured pair of heels/shoes or possibly a blazer/jacket to contrast it (although I am lazy which you will inevitably find out about me; therefore I'd probably just settle for the jumper without the add ons). In keeping with the laziness thought, if I can get a bring coloured one I will follow another trend which I believe is much more do-able: chunky coloured jewellery. That will be my *POP* of colour.
The MC Hammer/harem pants I want in a nice olive/army green because I so desperately want to match them with my amazing high heel Gladiators which I got from Nine West last summer. So that colour is pretty much non negotiable. What is negotiable about them is the fabric; this is another tricky aspect. I don't want a super stiff fabric and the really flow-y fabrics just don't seem to be cutting it. So a lot of misses in that department.
So, hopefully I will have some luck tomorrow. I'll post some pictures of these looks that I like for your visual enjoyment!Toodles.
