How to spot a trend

Posted on: May 16, 2010

How do I always know what the next hottest thing is?  For example, nautical stripes, I mentioned them on my blog and now they’re all over sites like

It really isn’t that hard.  You just keep your eyes open, read a lot of fashion magazines, and if you’re stuck in a place for a long time, you people watch.

What’s the next trend?  Floral is still in, but beach season is approaching fast.  Trends there still remain to be seen, but I’m hoping for cutout one piece bathing suits.  Military style things?  Possibly. Polka dots?  Definitely.

How to wear all of these trends together?  You don’t.

Polka dots don’t match floral, military style + polka dot = disaster, and cutouts remain to be seen what they match with.

Here is a Polyvore set to show you how I think some trends should be worn.

You could add a “none of the above” option to the poll. I am not a big fan of any of the trends, but I am not sure what a cutout looks like.

Cutout Dress

It looks like this. It’s really cute on bathing suits!

I want to see the tan lines from a cotout!
