My Fashion No

I would like to think that I have a fairly good fashion sense. I would say I am by no means a fashionista, but I like to dabble in making my wardrobe pretty classic. And with being pregnant, I have to work my closet a little more to fit the snuggness that is going on right now. So I have been eying some new items to add to my collection.

Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy are my fashion icons. Anything they wore, I pretty much think needs to be in my closet.

I love mixing colors. I often spend a lot of time in my closet pairing up different pallets that most wouldn’t do. One this expands the possibilities of my closet, but it also keeps me from buying clothes as often because I see more possibilities this way. I just really enjoy it!

What I don’t enjoy is mixing patterns.

I don’t get it.

This is like nails on the chalkboard to me. I hate it. I truly believe that if you do a pattern, all other items should be simple and understated. And there should only be ONE type of pattern. You have too much going on with more than one varied pattern. My eyes don’t know what to do or where to look. It’s like looking at one of those crazy image things that you stare at and make you dizzy trying to find something.

Again, I am not a fashion guru, so I know there are going to be people who disagree with me.

But I just don’t understand this fashion trend. So I will stick to my simple old fashion ways this spring.

I also don’t like crop tops. Why these are coming back in style is beyond me.

Are there fashion trends that you disagree with or just can’t get on board with?

Are there fashion trends you wish would come back? (Mine would be overalls. Although, I am not sure these were ever in style even though I thought they were.)
