Welcome to the Nothing To Wear Edit, where each week, we curate the best of whatever we spoke about on the podcast.
Trends can often feel scary, but there's no need to hide from them. The key to embracing trends lies in discovering the ones that resonate with your style and make you feel good. And that’s exactly what Mamamia’s Nothing to Wear podcast is about: putting the fun back into getting dressed.
Being on-trend doesn't mean becoming a slave to fashion's ever-evolving whims, explains Leonie Barlow, founder of award-winning website The Style Insider and Nothing to Wear guest.
“I'm a huge believer in a solid capsule wardrobe of good basics but I think of trends as the icing on the cake. They can just add a little bit of something extra, a little bit of interest. These are the pieces that you can add to your existing wardrobe to make pieces you already own work harder.”
Whether it's the allure of statement-making co-ords, pointy-toed shoes that can take you literally anywhere or metallics that gleam to space, this season there are plenty of styles to get excited about.
But the takeaway is to remember that not every trend is tailored to every individual. If you find that many of the current trends don't align with your personal style, there's no need to spend the cash. Fashion is cyclical, and new trends will always emerge. So, don't be intimidated by trends; instead, consider them loose guidelines to enhance your fashion journey.
