Issa No For Me Dawg.....
"Highlighting Trendy Plus Size Fashion As Worn By Chicago Blogger, Jacqueline Paytes"
That's the first thing you see when you open my blog, so clearly, I like to embrace the current trends. However, there are certain trends that try as I might, I just can't get into. I thought it would be fun to give you 5 trends that I am going to just let pass me by. Now before some folks get their panties in a bunch, this is in no way shape or form meant to be a dig at anyone who likes these trends, I have seen Divas killing these looks, they are just non starters for your girl! But, wear whatever the hell you want, nobody dubbed me the Fashion Police. This is meant to be lighthearted fun, so get out your feelings and check it out!
Trend #1. Swing Dressess
Okay, before you click off....lemme 'splain! Conceptually, I love this trend, i's easy, versatile and Fluffy Friendly, however it just doesn't work on me. I am kinda short, and busty, so this type of dress always looks very "tent like" on me. Trust me, I have tried to layer the look, add awesome accessories and shoes, but I always feel matronly when I attempt to rock a swing dress, so I have simply had to accept that this is just a trend that was not meant for me to rock.
Trend # 2. Ruffle Hem Pants
Another trend I really want to like, but just can't. I have seen this look in spandex, as well as denim and trouser style, and I have seen some of my fellow curvy divas own it, but I just feel silly when I put them on. They remind me of clown pants, and I can't take MYSELF seriously when I have them on! They're definitely fun though, and I think they'll be around for a while.
Trend #3. Wide Leg Track Pants
This is becoming very on trend for the fall. The Divas are rocking these as work looks with heels and cute tops, and I think that's where the trend loses me. I look at these pants and think basketball players on the bench....when they add the snaps down the side, I am thinking "c'mon, how are these NOT warm ups"?? But then again, to each his own. This is just not a look I can get with. Issa No For Me Dawg.
Trend #4. Lace Up Leggings
I struggle with this one. On the one hand, the look is sexy, and I like to incorporate a little touch of Vixen in everything I do, but for some reason, this look is just not one I can get into. Perhaps I see it done too much? Perhaps, I haven't seen it executed well? I dunno guys, I am just gonna leave this trend alone.
Trend #5. Liquid Leather Anything...
This is NOT to be confused with Faux Leather. I definitely rock faux leather jackets, pants skirts. but I am talking about that extra shiny, stretchy material. This trend has been going strong for a few years now, and doesn't appear to be going anyplace, anytime soon! I just don't like it....that's it, that's all. Not gonna even try!
Sooo, there you have it, five trends that are not trending in my closet. What do you think? Do you agree with any of my picks? Is there anything out here that you are simply not checking for? Sound off below!
