Though I’m typically not the biggest fan of over-exposed trends in regards to specific looks or individual pieces, I don’t mind making an exception if I feel like I can add my own twist and make the look representative of my personal style. That being said the sports-luxe trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon and these contrast side panel trousers, which in my opinion are one of the most popular items for this particular style, can be found almost EVERYWHERE. Though I did like them, I was hesitant to get the typical wide-legged version with buttons down the sides because I felt that they were a bit too casual and would go out of style a lot sooner. Luckily, after a bit of patience and research, I came across a more tailored option that I felt could be worn in more versatile settings in addition to just being trendy. I’m so happy I waited because I found that these pants serve as a great alternative for work as well as play. I also tend to prefer the option of dressing a more sophisticated garment down, than trying to dress up a casual piece—it just seems easier to me. In efforts to give my bottoms that “cool girl edge,” I found a slogan tee that could convey my playful vibe. Though I could’ve opted to go a more upscale route, I wanted to keep the look fairly effortless and carefree. Another ongoing trend from last year that seems to be taking the fashion world by storm is adding pops of bold colors. Red accessories have appeared to be the most prevalent and though I was initially leaning towards a pair of booties, these patent kitten-heel sling backs provided the perfect classic feminine touch that were unlike any pair of heels I currently own. Given the cooler temperatures that have started to become more consistent recently, it was a no-brainer for me to reach for my cropped leather jacket as an added layer. Finally, though the day was a bit gloomy, I added my round white sunnies to complete this look. I was definitely pleased with how this ensemble turned out despite being an extremely popular street-style look at the moment. While I wouldn’t necessarily consider myself and avid follower of trends, I don’t shy away from looks especially if I feel like they fit in with my wardrobe aesthetic. Let me know in the comments below if you don’t mind experimenting with popular trends, or if you ultimately choose to stay away from them. Until next time!
