3 trends you wouldn't expect wearing again and again



I'm pretty sure that when you see a sequin skirt, you don't go straight into thinking how good of a wardrobe staple that is, right? What about a leather motorcycle vest, or a pair of pinstripe trousers? Even if you don't see it coming, these three pieces can be worn in so many different ways, it would be a pity not investing in them.

Click below to find out how easily they can be styled!



1. Sequins



You probably expect sequin to be only appropriate during Christmas; I beg you to differ. I have invested in not only a sequin dress, but also a sequin skirt that I made on my own from scratch (okay, grandma helped) (okay, she did everything on her own, but STILL).

Side note: I'm pretty sure most of you already own a pair of sequin shorts, which is pretty awesome and cool and all, but can look very casual paired with a gigantic tee, so don't stick to that only. There are so many options to play with when it comes to sequin - designs, colors, you name it! And it's appropriate year-round; pair it with a graphic tee and sneakers for running around and with a silk camisole and pumps for an evening event.

2. The pinstripe trousers




I always wanted to have a pair of pinstripe trousers. So when I discovered one that seemed ideal for all the right choices - baggy, wide-legged and would not get me bankrupt - I of course purchased it right away. Yet when one tries it on for the first time, it may seem a bit tricky to wear. My first attempt was to go for a smart-casual look, by pairing it with platforms and a basic tee; it was okay, but nothing too exciting. I was a bit disappointed so I stashed it on the depths of my closet.

It was only after winter time had arrived that I realized its potential (can we even say potential over a pair of trousers?!). I paired it with combat boots and a baggy sweater et-voila! Amazeness had happened.

And yes, I'm obsessed ever since - I didn't expect it to be daytime-appropriate, yet with casual tees or knits, magic can happen.

3. The leather motorcycle vest



The motorcycle leather vest has got to be my favorite layering piece. It looks just as cool layered over a dress for summer as it does worn with a button-down shirt underneath and coat on top for fall. But my absolute favorite is with shorts and basic tees underneath; easy, and so, so cool.
