Some people seem to have a sixth sense for Fashion, to know what’s in and what’s not at any time. Others don’t quite have the talent for being on top of the latest happenings in fashion but that doesn’t mean your look doesn’t have to look outdated. Here are a few ways to keep up with the trends and even anticipate what’s going to be in before its time.

Start keeping up with social media
Social media can be a minefield of mixed messages but, when it comes to fashion, it can be extra helpful to help you keep up with the trends. Starting a fashion pinboard on Pinterest is an excellent way to collect all kinds of inspiration, too. Any time you see a picture that you like, be it on Pinterest, a different social media network, or some other website, you can pin it to your board so that when it comes time to go shopping, you can look at all of the inspiration that you have collected to help you complete your look.
Follow the influencers
You might not like to base your entire wardrobe on what a few individuals say is “in” at the moment. However, when it comes to the very latest in what’s hot, they tend to get the first glimpse since they work with the brands they represent. There are brand specific influencers, such as Rolex brand ambassadors, if you want to get something specific to help freshen up your look. However, there are also more general influencers who work with a wider range of fashion brands and try to be much more diverse in their wardrobe choices as a result.
Have some seasonable favourites
Following the trends need not always be quite as difficult as seeing what specific styles are in vogue at the moment because, every year, there are a few choices that tend to make the round without fail. Spring fashion, for instance, is always a good time to consider floral patterns and longer dresses, lace-up pumps, and brighter colours. If you can find a few seasonal favourites, then bringing them out or slightly newer twists on the formula can make sure that you’re always looking right for the time of year.
Follow the leaders
If you want to see the hottest looks before they start hitting the streets, then the best place to start is with the professionals who get paid to find those trends first. As such, you might want to look at online fashion magazines that you can subscribe to, even if it’s just for emails that can send you snippets without you needing to pay for them. Otherwise, fashion week is the time of year to get the scoop on what’s hot and what’s not so you might want to pay attention when it rolls around.
If you want to stay trendy, then it takes a little work to keep following what those trends are. Hopefully, the tips above help you stay feeling current and stylish as we move from season to season.
