Hi guys! Today’s post is a guest post, all about the top spring trends, written by my lovely blogger friend Kat who blogs over at Femenish. Kat talks about fashion, feminism, and travel! Be sure to check out her blog and give her a follow on Instagram!
I love looking through the trends each season and finding looks that are versatile, long-lasting and just really cool. There are so many cool trends this season which I really like, and I am trying to recreate them using the items I already have in my wardrobe (gotta be sustainable)!
I usually try to stay away from controversial topics on my blog. I prefer to keep it light and fun. However, our current environmental situation is desperate and I feel strongly about it. I’m making the change to a sustainable wardrobe and I want to tell you why. This post may get a little preachy and I apologize for that. It’s important though, so I encourage you to read on!
The Current Situation
Our current situation is pretty dire. With climate change, overpopulation, deforestation, and pollution we have nearly succeeded in making our home planet inhospitable to human life, as well as to most of our fellow animals. We’ve got a very short time left to make some drastic changes if we want to change our current circumstances. There are lots of things we can all do to help that go beyond recycling.
Coats and jackets have long been a favourite wardrobe item of mine. My collection is rather large and includes winter coats, faux fur, a Yukon parka, jean jackets, trenches, suede, and my leather jacket, which is one of my most prized possessions. If you challenged me to pick a favourite style I think I would have to go with moto jackets for a few different reasons. They are versatile, a bit edgy, and suit my body type – I have long legs and a short torso. Moto jackets hit at just the right spot near my waist.
In my work wardrobe basics post I mentioned that fact that I think a black skirt is a must-have. Mine gets worn three to four times per week. I would argue that it’s one of the hardest working pieces in my closet.
I’ve pulled together four different looks to give you some inspiration for styling a black skirt for the office. If skirts aren’t your thing I think black pants could easily be subbed in.
I’m on a shopping ban at the moment, however, I still have a running wish-list. When I do finally buy a few things I’ll refer to the list so that I stay on track and don’t end up with any unused pieces.
