Ponchos, ‘super’ low-rise jeans, beaded Chinese slippers, over- sized sunglasses. What do all of those trends have in common? We were completely oversaturated with them! Thanks to celebrities, designer knock offs, and a slew of street vendors.
It happens to the best of us; you have a moment that you swear these overly trendy goods are not your cup of tea; then you are suddenly rockin’ a poncho. It’s called “Trend Overkill”
Today that same ill fated “trend overkill” has entered our world, and we shall them leggings. Leggings are nothing new, heck most of us wore them at some point in our childhood- but now they are taking over. From the Missoni runway to the legs of young Hollywood; you literally cannot go a day without having leggings in your life. The decision is yours; shun leggings all together or welcome them into your wardrobe.
“Trend Overkill” seems to work four in stages…
Here is the kicker- can you wear it like an A-Lister? That is the difference from looking like a Grade-A Fool and an A- List Celebrity. In the case of the legging overkill, the key is to enhance an outfit and NOT make them the focus of the outfit. Wear the trend wisely, looks like it is here to stay for a few more seasons. The last thing you need is to flip through your photo album 10 years from now to say “I can’t believe I wore that!”
