How to pick the best fashion trends

By Monique Fischle

Things in fashion change so quickly that it's sometimes hard to predict which trends will stay around for a while and those that will leave us scratching our heads thinking, how on earth did anyone find this fashionable? I’m still confused about crocs. Not that they are a trend, they’re just hideous.

But for me, there’s a little secret when it comes to trends — no trend will look good on everyone. It’s sad but true. Over the years I’ve found that many of the fashions trends I love would not look good on me, so I don’t wear them. For instance I love playsuits, love them, but they are so unflattering on my figure so I’ve never bought one.

It seems simple, but it seems many people miss this, assuming that just because they like it, it will look good. There's an easy way that I judge what fashion trends will look good on me — would I feel confident buying it online without ever having tried it on? When it comes down to it, we all know what suits us and what doesn’t. So if you have to think twice, don’t buy.

What fashion trend am I loving that looks good on most people? Peplum tops, skirts and dresses, they are fantastic when it comes to accentuating your waistline.

Using a bright coloured top with some softer-toned pants really helps to brighten up the outfit.

Teaming a Peplum top with a full bodied skirt creates the perfect layered ensemble

The white peplum top with the light floral pants makes for a very feminine outfit.
