After spending countless hours looking at all the fashion presentations from this past Spring for the upcoming Fall season, the eight trends listed below appeared to be the most prevalent and the most dominant trends for the upcoming season.... and while I think that it is important to understand trends and to adapt them to our own personality and personal sense of style, I don't believe in dressing oneself entirely according to a set of predetermined styles set forth by the fashion industry. Rather, I believe people should dress to be the absolute best version of themselves, and in order to achieve this, a person must know who they are on the deepest level. It may take years or decades for a person to truly understand who they are and how they want others to perceive them, but it is in these years of self exploration that I believe trends allow us to explore different fashion ideas and allow us to discover what works best for ourselves. Therefore, I believe that it is important to familiarize oneself with the trends listed below and take them with a grain of salt. Incorporating one or two trends into our everyday lives in order to express our creativity and individuality is always fun and a welcome diversion from the stress we experience on a daily basis.
