Friday Fives: Five trends I won’t be wearing

12th July 2013

Ok so I work in fashion and I design trend- led pieces for the high street but whether I wear them is another matter entirely. Trends I have been wearing at the mo are head to toe colour, white on white, print pants/trousers and I still pop a peplum now and then but on the flip side there are some popular trends that I have left well alone. As much as I may admire them on other people on me its a no-no and here they are…

Crop tops

Right the only time my jelly belly goes on display in public is when I’m in a bikini on a beach! I do quite like the way some celebs rock the look with a high waist pant/skirt and a blazer so there’s just a glimpse of bare midriff. It is a flattering way of working a crop but nonetheless I’ll be passing on this trend.

Buttoned up shirts

Yes, I am the only girl left on the planet that refuses to button my shirt all the way up! I just feel like it makes me look like I’m smuggling huge melons under my blouse (and my boobs really aren’t big!)

‘Cheeky’ Micro shorts


Rihanna in her ‘cheeky’ micro shorts- nope no way I’m wearing a pair of these!


I quite like dungarees on other people but on me its just way too much ‘Bob the Builder’ terrority!

Cara Delevingne is responsible for this trend and she and her fans always have a beanie on. I am gonna simply say I’m way TOO old and too square to wear this trend! Lol
