- Bright colors - Yes.
- Menswear - No. I have several suits already, but I'm not going out and getting blocky suits with shoulder pads. I haven't worn shoulder pads since the 80's and don't intend to ever do so again.
- Seventies - Maybe. It depends on whether or not I have something suitable in my wardrobe already.
- White - I already have lots of this.
- Lace - Probably not. I have a couple of pieces that have small lace or eyelet accents, but that's about as far as I take it.
- Sporty - What I've seen so far is either preppy, or things like drawstrings and sweatpants prettied up in an attempt to make them stylish. Sweatpants and heels don't mix, I don't care what J. Crew or any fashion magazine says.
- Modern Metallics - Sparingly. I have a metallic purse and some metallic sandals. That's about it for me.
- Florals - Maybe. I tend to avoid these because I just don't like floral prints on my clothing.
- Denim/Chambray - YES! I have a nice dressy chambray skirt already picked out.
- Building Blocks - Again with the color-block. I think I'll just stick to bright colors.
- Eastern Front - I'm pretty sure this includes harem pants. No thanks.
- Into the Wild - Animal prints. I might spring for a pair of snake sandals.
- Lace Race - Again, no.
- Sheer Bliss - Can't wear to work, and I don't really enjoy see through clothes for the most part.
- Down to Business - Men'swear inspired, again. I already have plenty of this, but in a more feminine vein.
- That 70's Show
- Punk'd - Not really my thing.
- Prints Charming - Bold prints, again. Nah.
In the last 10 years or so, the basic building blocks of my wardrobe haven't changed that much. I don't usually tend to follow fads or trends and have built my wardrobe with basic, classic pieces I can wear forever. Well, not forever, but you know what I mean. It has gotten pretty boring, in my opinion, and I'm really trying to spice it up a little.
As a rule, the fashion industry has little to do with my self image or what I like to wear. While I love reading fashion magazines and looking at what everyone else is wearing, I pretty much go my own way. I hate the impossible beauty standards imposed on women, but looking at clothes is fun for me.
As long as I don't get caught up in the bullshit, I'll continue to read fashion blogs, occasionally look at fashion magazines and keep (mostly window) shopping.
