Hello there 🙂
Let me anticipate this story by saying that my friend has a great style – do not get me wrong. But as with any relationship, we have different views on specific topics, especially in the trend department. There have been many instances of me jazzing over an outfit, and his reaction is anything but elated. I have learned by trial and error that he is not a fan of the neon trend, does not tolerate dad sneakers and does not even get him to work in bike shorts. I think relationships are about compromise, right?
However, there are a few trends for 2019 in which he and I are in complete agreement. So I thought it might be fun to share the parts my friend Shane and I are standing on. Although I dress for myself, sometimes you just want to feel that your fashion efforts are appreciated, amirite? From nouveau knitwear to knee-high boots, the following four trends have received the official green light from both of us.
We both stand for blazers of all kinds, but we agree that a belted blazer feels more up to date. They radiate a cool mood and at the same time show your waist with the integrated belt. Shane also gave a thumbs up to blazer dresses with a belt, which I think is great.
While a leather jacket will always be in fashion, this season is all about leather – from shirts to trousers to trench coats. Shane agrees that adding a leather that stands out from a look makes the feeling instantly cooler and more noticeable. He likes leather pants and coats while itching to put a luxurious leather shirt in my wardrobe.
I got into the trend for knee-high boots some time ago, so I knew Shane was on board given the compliments I received. What I did not expect was that he was in the straight-leg jeans I've seen everywhere lately. I'm a big fan because I think it looks effortlessly cool, but I figured he would not agree with that trend. To my surprise, he said it reminds him in a refreshing way of the 90s.
Strick 2.0 is a long way from the boring cardigans and pullovers of the past. This fall knitwear in unexpected parts is all I can think of. From crop tops to shrunken cardis to matching sets, Nouveau Knitwear makes the cuddly material chic and cool.
Next, I threw jeans overboard for a week – here's what I wore instead.
