Love and Hate Fashion Trends - Day Four

Fashion Trends? Well thats definitely not something you hear me talk about round here! I wouldn't say that I am really trendy but I kind of scrub up ok when you can get me out of my sports wear : )

You may not have realised but I love fashion and I would love to go to a fashion show one day it would have to be Dior or Channel though! I don't tend to spend lots of money on fashion trends that come and go, I like what I like and I know how to dress for my shape so I stick to what I think looks best on me. Plus I don't really have that much spare cash to spend on clothes so when I do I buy clothes I try to pick up items that will last through each season.

For todays post we have to write about fashion trends we love and hate and I have one of each that came to mind, first up the a fashion trend I love......

NEONS!


I have always loved colourful things and I especially love colourful clothes. I have lots of brightly coloured clothes in my wardrobe along with lots of sequins, of course! I don't usually wear colour head to toe just enough to catch the eye although I have gorgeous new dress which is very colourful for my friends wedding, I'll have to show case that beauty!


I love to wear brightly coloured lipsticks and jewellery when I go out as you can see above, ignore the crazy face! I'm also addicted to patterned and very colourful leggings for working out or when I'm training clients. I do think I wear too much black sometimes but thats because its easy to hide behind when I'm feeling a bit body conscious black is my go to colour for clothes. 


Now for the fashion trend I'm not so keen on....cropped tops/short tops are a big NO NO for me. I always wear a top to cover just below ur....my crutch! Ha yep I can't stand anything shorter maybe if I was super slim my view on the cropped top may be different but for my body they look horrendous and I would feel very self conscious if I had to wear one. I am definitely more of a short skirt kind of girl then a cropped top, my pins are pretty good : )

Although I don't talk about fashion much here I do love clothes and I sometimes think about doing an OOTD style post what do you think?

  1. I don't think I could pull of bright colours. Maybe I'm not daring enough? But I prefer to stick to dark colours or pastels at very best. I do like jazzing up a dark outfit with a statement necklace or handbag though.
    I think the crop tops are a bit 'show offy' you know? Look at my flat tummy! I'm actually quite proud of my tummy but I'd never be that obnoxious to wear one of those tops!

    1. You can never go wrong with a statement necklace or bag and you definitely need a good tum to wear one of those short tops!

  2. Can't say I've ever been a fan of the crop top either! I think I have a pretty simple style, often wearing just a day dress, sandals and a bracelet. I'd love to be skilled in matching my outfits, but I've never been able to do it!

  3. I love bright colours. I spent so much of my life hiding in black clothes that I love to wear bright stuff as much as possible now.

  4. I don't mind crop tops so much, I guess it depends who is wearing it though. I wish I could wear neons, I just don't think they look good on me... plus, they blind me lol!

  5. Urgh I hate crop tops, I think they just look awful. I hate belly buttons anyway, and I don't want to see anyone else's!
    I quite like bright colours instead of pastels (pastels do not suit me at all) but I don't like neon- makes my skin look yellow!
