DISCLAIMER: I am not being paid for this post; however, I was sent the images by a representative of the company and was requested to write a post. All opinions are my own.
I actually haven’t had a trends post for a while now, though, haven’t I?
Anyways, Boohoo.com sent me some exclusive images from their latest campaign~ (They’re also hosting a pretty awesome competition, so scroll down if you’re more interested in that!) These all showcase some of their stunning new releases in conjunction with upcoming trends!
The trends to look out for
I haven’t seen these as much just yet – which means their popularity is yet to peak. Get on them before they do! ;D
Metallics – I’ve been quite interested in a pair of silver Doc Martens, actually (though I also want a flower print pair – decisions, decisions!) Perhaps I’ll pick up a cute pair of shorts along the way~ This shade does tend to emphasise the part it is worn on – so if you are bottom heavy, try a metallic crop.
Drop waist dress – super cute >u< I feel that depending on the length ratio of the top-to-bottom and the pattern of the dress, pretty much anyone can wear these. The gingham print one has captured my heart though – haha.
The culottes – these look really edgy but laid-back. A great androgynous fashion item~ Be careful not to choose a pair that will swamp your frame if you’re on the petite side, or look too baggy if you have an apple shape.
The blogger-to-street pieces
To explain what the title is – these are basically pieces that I’ve seen on the net very often, but very little in everyday life. Well, at least here in Sydney, Australia that’s the case. These would be the crop top and the skort (especially the skort). Though I have seen them quite frequently on Lookbook.nu and Chictopia, I daresay that most of us will not know someone who has one of these items – meaning it’s safe to snap up and start trending in our smaller communities! (Don’t laugh at me, I do this. Fight me.)
The trend-to-shape cheat sheet
As you can see – the jumpsuit flatters the hourglass and pear shapes the most.
Although I am of the firm opinion that with the right cut, accessories and attitude you can pull off any piece, from the campaign there are some golden combinations that will just blow everyone else out of the water.
If you are athletic – try the double layer dress or bomber jacket.
If you are pear-shaped – try the crop top or a slip dress in a solid colour.
If you are apple-shaped – try the shirt or swing dress.
If you are tall – try the coordinate and culottes.
If you are petite – try the slip dress and the drop waist dress.
If you are hourglass – try the jumpsuit.
To balance a top-heavy shape, try the culottes.
To give a softer, more youthful look try the drop waist separates.
For a more boyish and edgy look go for the shirt dress.
To create a more balanced shape go for the coordinate.
The illusion of longer legs will come with the skort.
But take these tips with a grain of salt. If you look in the mirror and think “hang on, I look good in this” then you’re right. Trust your instinct – you know your body shape and what flatters it more than I do!
I’ve already said that metallics are culottes are in my favoured list – but so are the bomber jacket and the shirt dress!
Isn’t it just the cutest?
