For me, the concept of spending money on classic, staple pieces and spending less on trendy pieces really makes sense! I love following trends, but since they will most likely be out of style in the coming year, I don’t want to spend a lot of money on them. For example, take the two tops in the post- one is a cold shoulder top (super trendy right now), and one has an oversized ruffle (an oversized ruffle probably won’t stand the test of time). There are lots of fun places to buy trendy pieces, but have you guys looked at Topshop or the “trend” department at Nordstrom? If not, you’ve got to check them out! Some nights, just for fun, I’ll peruse the new arrivals in the “trend” department to see what is currently on trend. And you know I end up with lots of cute things in my cart! Ha! Now, of course some of the trends I cannot/do not want to wear, but it’s still fun to see what’s on trend! Both tops in this post are from Topshop (a brand in the trend department) and are less than $70. Obviously, there are places to buy less expensive trendy items, but I find that I like the quality (for the most part) of Topshop. I want to wear trendy items, but I don’t want them to fall apart or look cheap. Here are a few of my Topshop favorites:
What are some of your favorites? Are you in love with this blue top like I am?
