Don't Overspend on Trends

Only 25% (I will explain below).

Fashion trends are typically the styles that are "here today, gone tomorrow". It's very popular at a particular moment, but fizzles over time. To spot them, it's usually the piece with a very stark detail, design, or shape. Very often, it's the one thing in your closet that you can't find ANYTHING to match with it. Yep, that's it! The trend.

Here's the deal, trends are simple. They provide some flare to our staples. Trends change each season so we have something to look forward to.  It's like adding sprinkles to the cake. Fun but not the core.

So, to keep it simple, don't fret about staying hip to every single trend. It should make up no more than 25% of your closet anyway. Since they are only about a 1/4th of your closet, don't invest a lot of money in them. These are the items you buy for fun to try them out. On average, you will probably keep it a year or two. Therefore, each season, just pick a style or two that you really like and try it. To make it easy for you, we've highlighted 10 trends this season that you might enjoy.

Overall, you don't want a closet full of trends because they are often hard to pair with other items, especially other trends. That's when frustration sets in.
