Three current clothing trends are: anything peplum, colored denim and burgundy, burgundy, burgundy!
I was recently tempted into purchasing some cheap & trendy items at H&M and Old Navy. They were only $19 each, so I thought I’d see if I could fit these trends into my current wardrobe.
|Old Navy Rockstar Jeans (blue & red) & Cords (peach) – bought during the $19 sale|
The rockstar jeans were not a success – they don’t suit my figure at all (drumstick legs – yuck!) – Garage skinny
jeans are much more flattering on me (they are made of thicker material and suck me where I
need it!). The rockstar cords fit well (and are nice and warm)
BUT I don’t really see myself wearing peach bottoms – especially in the
winter months! I changed them for these brown ones – boring & safe,
but much easier to pair with tan boots and cream sweaters.
Peplum tops in Burgundy & Black:
|H&M peplum tops – $19.95|
I liked the neckline and sleeves of the peplum tops – but the pleating above the stomach was strange and puffy – especially when viewed from the side. And I’m not sure I’m comfortable with the peplum silhouette on my figure. Even though these tops were a bargain at $19 each – they are not a good deal if I never wear them!
Navy Lace Dress:
|H&M Navy Lace Dress: $34.95|
I did find one keeper – although it is not a “trendy” item – I LOVE this navy lace tunic. I’m still trying to figure out how I will wear it – it’s too short to wear as a dress, so I may pair it with dark skinny jeans or black leggings & black ballet flats.
Some outfits from this week:
|JoeFresh necklace, Jacob top, Garage jeans, Old Navy boots (mine are the 2011 version) & Balenciaga bag|
Was in such a rush that morning – I didn’t have much time to do my hair so I twisted it up into a top knot using my trusty spin pins.
|Old Navy Heart Sweater & Gingham Shirt, Garage jeans, Old Navy boots (mine are the 2011 version)|
This orange shirt & heart sweater pairing was inspired by this outfit on pinterest (she must love shopping at Old Navy as much as I do!) – love her orange chambray shirt & the leopard accents she used.
Have you added any peplum items or colored denim to your wardrobe? Are you ever tempted to purchase trendy items just because they’re cheap?
