Style it – Wearable trends

 

TRENDS INTERPRETED

(Wearable trends for busy women & mums right now….)

While all of the winter stock is selling out of the stores, most of us who are so busy can find it hard to work out just what is THE next fashion. It’s a hard job to keep looking fresh whilst changing nappies, working, running kids around & deciding what is for dinner etc etc. And plus when all these new styles hit the stores, it’s hard to work out how to wear them….most of us just want some additional items to keep us from looking daggy. And we also don’t want to look like we are trying too hard…
So, I have grouped some wearable trends that have started to arrive in stores. These trends would fit into a variety of lifestyles/shapes/budgets.

 

Hope this helps you look fab 😉
