As the doors of 2018 closed, I’ve now taken it upon myself to pause and reflect as to what I want my 2019 wardrobe, vibe and outfit-style to be. While of course, no one is ever restricted to a certain trend(s), they are helpful to pave the way to a better and a more well-dressed ‘you’. But how would one be certain when a trend’s taken off? Well for instance, repeatedly seeing them on Instagram is usually the way it works now.
