Which do you prefer, CLASSIC OR TRENDY STYLE? I’m one to like a lot of different looks, and certainly CLASSIC falls in there. But TRENDY is probably what I turn to the most. I seem to LOVE pretty much everything that is new and different. Classic is probably NOT what I would choose first. To me it feels boring and too sophisticated. I definitely don’t like boring, and sophisticated doesn’t describe me at all.
I would much prefer going with something vibrant and colorful and full of pattern, etc. But can you dress in a more classic way using color and pattern? I also love different silhouettes, which is probably THE ONE THING that would define a CLASSIC look versus a TRENDY look.
My outfit here, from Chicos, I feel has a more classic vibe. The red, black, and gray palatte seem classic to me. The jacket is timeless, the simple gray pull-on jean, houndstooth scarf and classic black hat all have more of a classic feel than trendy to me.
I LOVE how these pieces came together. I’m sure a lot has to do with the BOLD VIBRANT RED of the jacket. The graphic pattern of the scarf is supposedly what works for me, if you were to talk to those “experts”! With those two things, this classic look works for me!
Can you mix the two? I say, OF COURSE YES, but it can be tricky to do, so it flows together nicely. I would wear the jacket with a cute pair of silky or velvet joggers. I would also wear it with my most distressed pair of jeans and combat boots. I would wear the scarf with possibly a floral boho girly dress. I think that mix could be fabulous!
So I feel that mixing the two CAN work. I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to fashion, but also think about whether something works, MORE now than ever before…. due to my age. But like I’ve always said, “If I/you feel confident in something, I believe it will work!”
So….. which do you prefer, classic or trendy style? As long as YOU feel confident in something and it makes you happy, you’ll look BEAUTIFUL!
