Clothing styles change just like we change our underwear, as soon as you find a pattern that you like, it becomes obsolete in a few years – usually to come back reinvented in several more seasons. Nonetheless, it renders your fond foliate obsolete, unless you choose to wear it anyway at the risk of being unfashionable.
So, the risk of purchasing might seem daunting – do you choose classic colors that never go out of style, or do you choose patterns with the hope that they will remain in style long enough to don them for a few months?
The answer is probably both. You should have a good mix of items that will make your wardrobe complete, allowing you to have great versatility, making your outfits show your personal style, and add some vibrancy to your day.
Everyone has their own fashion rules that they like to stand by, whether that is to feel comfortable no matter what they’re wearing, or that they won’t wear anything that they can not chase their kids around in. Find what works for you.
Patterns are pretty common, regardless of how much they might change, you might find patterns with foliage, plaids, stripes, etc. You might also be more pulled to classic colors that work together in pairing outfits and easier for you to pick out your clothing on an everyday basis. This is why you have to go with your gut and find items that will work in conjunction with your existing wardrobe and choose pieces that will fill in the gaps, whether they are classic colors or patterns and prints.
Maybe you’ll even surprise yourself and find a piece that you never would have picked for yourself and end up falling in love with after you try it on. Shopping with friends is also a great way to find something new and refreshing to match your wardrobe, since friends are honest when you try on clothes.
