How to Nail Two SS18 Trends (on a Budget)

January 26, 2018

No matter how much you love or hate trends, some seem to be made just for you. That's when you resonate with it 100% and you start wondering why in the world you haven't worn it as much as you should in the past years.
Two of my favs are: polka dots all day every day and the trench coat. 

Let's take the trench coat. Nothing new so far, but the trench came back bigger, better, updated. Reinterpreted. Mixed with feminine pieces with lovely details such as frills in powdery shades, fluid fabrics, conceptual corsets, flower prints. I couldn't love it more. Go for deconstructed trenches, change their belts and add your own, personalise them, make them your own and get a timeless but modern look in this season's hottest item.

Polka dots are fun, playful, graphic. I love them especially in the summer, hence the summery pieces I've chosen on my wish list below. Think outside the box and go for polka dots in different sizes and colours (even go for circles), on feminine pieces such as dresses, skirts and cropped tops, or on the contrary, on more masculine cuts such as a trench coat, bomber, suit (think shorts and blazer), etc. don't stop there because more is never enough and find some polka dot socks, shoes, whatever accesories you love and incorporate them into your outfit.
My go-to accesory to pair with polka dots are those tiny cat eye sunglasses which I adore (just ordered few pairs in fact) and some neo-western boots. Why not?

I have some cool suggestions on a budget from ZAFUL, from left to right: Polka Dot Midi Dress | Deux-Pieces | Cat Eye Sunnies | Stripy Box Bag
