My Fashion Statements is a fashion diary that aims to encourage every Tina, Drew, and Harriet to step out of that comfort zone by taking fashion risks without being afraid to raise a few eyebrows. This blog challenges conventions and commands conversations about the latest fashion news and style trends flooding the magazines and social media spheres. Fashion has a voice and we are the interpreters. You decide how you want to tell your story. After all, fashion rules are made to be broken.
One thing that just grinds my gears is when people blindly follow a trend (no pun intended) because all the cool kids are doing it. Seriously, STAWP. When it comes to sunglasses, you have two options: aviators and Ray Bans. EXCEPT YOU DON'T. There is a whole world of sunglasses that hasn't been explored because people are afraid to try something different. What happened to originality? What happened to our sense of humour? Have people forgotten that it isn't just what come out of your mouth, but what comes out of your closet! Or it can be if you stop taking trends so seriously and open your eyes to the magical world of creativity. It's time to place those trendy shades in a box and opt for a new pair of wild eyes. If fashion month was any indication, you'll be way ahead of the trend with these shades on.
Here are some of the top contenders:
CAROLINA HERRERA Fall 2014
If you're not much of a risk taker, this is a great transitional pair that's been in the works since last Spring. Very John Lennon and the perfect dab of weird.
FENDI Fall 2014
Don't shy away from colour. Embrace it. Whether in your furs or your eyewear, colour blocking is always a creative thrill.
KAREN WALKER Fall 2014
The rule is: the bigger the better. This model has a small face and she's pulling it off, so why can't you?
KATE SPADE Fall 2014
Pink is the colour of season. In the land of Kate Spade, it is also a perfectly acceptable colour for Fall.
HOUSE OF HOLLAND Fall 2014
Did I say pink was on trend? I meant: it's a must. You need it. Audrey Hepburn believed in pink, so you should too.
So stop being such a trend follower, start experimenting, and get yourself a new pair of sunglasses that will stop people in their tracks. All the cool designers are doing it.
