There are many trends that I love at the moment and I'd like to hear what you guys think of them, so I thought I'd start my Trend Talk series now. From chokers to velvet and leopard print, I am so excited to create outfits incorporating some of these key seasonal pieces, whilst keeping 'real' to my own look. Man, that sounds try hard, doesn't it! It won't be, I promise.
For the first official post, I thought I'd go in easy with something we've been seeing around since last year - the cold shoulder! I am not much of a dress wearer to be honest, but when it comes to LBDs (little black dresses), I can't say no. Same with the trend, I have only dipped my toes in it really but I have been enjoying it. I'm pear-shaped and I find that it helps me balance out my heavier hips with my tiny shoulders as that's whats highlighted most.
This specific cold shoulder dress by Quiz is in the sale now, and as it has been a firm favourite this month despite the weather getting colder so I thought it deserved an honourable mention. I managed to squeeze in a few days in October happily wearing it with standard heels in the evening, but the other day I even ventured out with my new boots and old leather jacket, and this dress couldn't have looked better. It is cut on the shorter side of the spectrum so not ideal if you have an office job or strict dress code, but if you're looking for a plain LBD with a little twist, this is it!
I find the trend to be really nice and quite fitting for most ages and body shapes. I haven't seen anyone look bad in any cold shoulder top or dress so far. Despite the perception that this might be more of a spring and summer look to go for, I think it's easy to pull of all year round with the right accessories and colour scheme. I mean, boots and dresses never look bad!
How many LBDs do you have in your closet? I have at least 5.
