Why I don’t buy into trends

Why I don’t buy into trends

Forget buying into every trend that pops up each season. You’ll soon realize that once that moment is gone, your once lust-worthy piece turns into a worthless buy.

I learned early that some trends are worth investing in only if they’re purse-friendly (it’s always best to keep these trendy purchases to places like Asos, Forever 21 or Topshop) so that you don’t feel robbed when the fashion gods decide something is no longer in style.

And don’t get me wrong, it’s difficult not to be tempted to invest in a certain piece that everyone is wearing at the moment, but always think twice when splashing your hard-earned money on designer pieces.

That being said, I’m a strong believer that classic, tailored pieces are worth our money. I also take into consideration the colour of the garment – a neutral colour will go with most of the pieces from your wardrobe (think black, navy, nude, brown, black, burgundy).

This season I’m all about sophisticated nudes with minimal details – a well fitted blazer is ALWAYS worth the investment. I love the simple, super flaterring silhouette of this Whistles blazer especially when teamed with embellished culottes.


Evita sa iti cumperi haine dupa trend. E adevarat ca moda ne invata ce sa purtam, dar asta nu inseamna ca trebuie sa tinem cont de toate tendintele si propunerile marilor case de moda. In scurt timp vei realiza ca piesa vestimentara dupa care ravneai si pe care ti-ai cheltuit tot salariul nu mai este in trend.

Eu am invatat, de-a lungul timpului, sa investesc cu cap si sa aleg doar hainele care mi se potrivesc si ma reprezinta. Daca, totusi, imi face cu ochiul un anumit trend de care nu sunt foarte sigura ca va trece testul timpului, atunci incerc pe cat posibil sa cumpar doar din magazinele de mass-market precum Asos, Forever 21 sau Topshop. Din fericire, din ce in ce mai multe branduri de consum imbunatatesc calitatea hainelor pe care le vand, asa incat poti cu usurinta cumpara o piesa vestimentara de calitate fara sa cheltui o avere pe ea.

Imbraca-te pentru tine! Stiu, suna a cliseu, dar este foarte important sa te imbraci in functie de personalitatea ta. Pentru a reusi acest lucru, nu trebuie sa te limitezi doar la ceea ce se poarta in sezonul respectiv.

Acestea fiind spuse, eu tin cont doar de ceea ce-mi place si nu de ceea ce vad in jur. Un sacou clasic, cu o croiala usor masculina este intotdeauna o investitie buna. Cea mai recenta achizitie este acest blazer Whistles pe care deja il vad in nenumarate combinatii stilistice.

Sper ca vei gasi acest articol util si ca vei inceta sa-ti cumperi haine in trend, doar pentru ca ai vazut-o pe vedeta ta preferata purtandu-le.
