Every single season, a new trend pops up. It doesn’t matter if it’s something that’s being redone from years before, something entirely new and different, or a new twist on an old favourite, there’s always something new to be excited about. Whether you love them or hate them, trends can be something we chase after each and every year.
But, how do we get ahead of them? How can we make sure that we stay on top of the trends when they’re changing so often? It can seem quite difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, staying ahead of the catwalk trends is a lot easier than it seems.
One of the most traditional ways to keep ahead in the fashion industry is to read up. You can get instant access to fashion news online and read up on the details in magazines too. By doing this, you can read up on a lot of information that will help to shape your wardrobe in months to come. But you can also take a look at older trends too to see what influences they used and what inspiration you can take from them too.
Then, when we think about the modern world, the best way to keep up with trends is to head to your social media, research and be observant. Not only can you see the trends from the shows just moments after they’ve finished, but you can look at posts from designer fashion houses themselves. You can also see what celebrities are wearing and how leading fashion influencers style the trends from all around the world too.
Another way to get ahead in the trend game is to take note of what is trending. When you’re reading magazines and being active on social media, you have to be able to edit through the noise. Each season, there are a lot of trends, but not all of them will apply to you. So, you need to be able to take note of the new season items and figure out what works for you.
Then, after you’ve researched and while you’re editing, you need to remember to stay true to your own personal style. Yes one trend might be dominating the catwalks and celebrities may love it, but if you don’t feel comfortable styling it, then it’s probably not the one for you. And that’s okay because not every trend will work for you. The only way you can truly be fashion forward is to find what suits you and work what feels right.
Watch The Shows
And finally, you’re going to want to make sure that you’re watching the shows as they happen. Unfortunately, not everyone gets an invite to the shows. Unless you’re a fashion insider, it’s probably not going to happen. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t watch them. In fact, many of the shows now let you watch live. The live streams do allow you to edit the trends as you see them and work out what you might want to style when the season begins.
