One Winter Trend I Never Thought I’d Wear

Styling a trendy item I never thought I would own, a rainbow stripe sweater! Which I am now madly in love with.

Do you ever see someone wearing a trend and say, “I’ll never wear that“? Because, that’s exactly what I did when I saw the whole rainbow trend kick off recently. I was like heck no, no way, not me. Well, here I am y’all eating my words. I spotted this sweater and before I knew it, I was in the fitting room falling in love. So here’s to wearing trends you never thought you would and totally loving them! 

Now, don’t worry, I’m not going to go overboard and rock full on rainbow or buy several rainbow colored items. Truly, this is a one and done kind of thing. The main reason I fell in love with this sweater, I believe, is due to the fact that is contains my two favorite colors – pink and blue. Therefore, I decided to pull out those colors with a pink and blue scarf and pink loafers. That way, those were the colors that popped out to everyone else as well {hopefully}. Do those happen to be the colors that pop out to you?!

My tip for trying out trends or diving into ones you never thought you’d wear, choose the item in your favorite color{s}. You’re more likely to like it and wear it! Aka better investment and a little bit less of an impulse buy! 

Another note, if you’re looking for some new pants, you MUST try these. They are incredibly soft {aka the softest things EVER} and have a great amount of stretch. These skinny chinos are the kind of pants you can live in all day long and not feel constricted. Even though you won’t feel constricted {or be dying to get out of them by the end of the day} you’ll also look/feel put together! Which is a total win in my book. I do recommend sizing down one size. For reference, I’m usually a two or a four and for these I went with a two. They also come in black if you’re looking for a great pair of black pants for work!

    You definitely jumped out of your comfort zone with this one but I think its very in line with your style because of the predominate pinks and blues!
