Don’t feel pressured

Catwalks, magazines and shops may be splashed and stuffed with current trends, but don’t feel pressured to jump on the bandwagon. Invest in the style only if you really like it and it suits you.

Complement your wardrobe

When shopping for trend pieces, picture them hanging in your wardrobe next to your other clothes. To save yourself buying an entirely fresh wardrobe each season, ask yourself when shopping, ‘What do I have that goes with this?’

Buy things you love

Trends come and go but your wardrobe will remain, so make sure it is something you love and will wear again, regardless.

Make it your own

Take it and make it your own. What does the look say about you and how do you style it to make it suit you? With that in mind, which of these fresh floral looks would suit you the most?
