Working as a professional stylist, I live eat breath fashion, so of course I keep on top of trends. I do not believe style should be defined by trends, but I do think it’s important to know what’s “in”, whether you’re going to try it or not. I think the best way to embrace a trend is to make it your own, rather than wearing it the way you see everyone else wearing it. Athletic inspired style is one of those looks that’s been trending for a while, and it’s especially popular now in the spring season. I like the cute but relaxed feel of a sporty ensemble, and think it’s a down-to-earth, relatable look. Here I styled a slouchy athletic tee with a leather trim skater skirt. For many people, this outfit might have been great with “fashion sneakers”, but that’s one component of the look you would NOT see me wearing. As previously mentioned, I’m super short, and sneakers do nothing for me…I will literally only wear them if I’m running or hiking and have no choice. So instead, I went for some fun wedge sandals that have a bit of a sporty vibe. That’s what I mean about making an outfit your own – do what works for you and your body!
