Playful Proportions: How to Find the Perfect Balance in Trends

Fashion trends change in more than one way with each new season. Not only do we see changes in color and styles, but change also comes in silhouettes, textures, prints and fabrics. I find proportions to be the biggest, most crucial part of fashion. If you can find the right proportions to compliment your body type and personal style, you will always look stylish, no matter what is currently on trend.

It was not too long ago that boho-chic ruled supreme. Piled on bangle bracelets, large layered statement necklaces, and loose fitting maxi dresses and butterfly tops were all the rage. While some still pull that off because it works best for them, as far as trends go, that look is very seasonal. Minimalism had its glory days just last spring. Tailored clothing with menswear inspired lines took on neutral colors that you could mix and match in dozens of different combinations. But those looks were classic and nothing too new or exciting and will still be around for years to come.

I find that this spring we are in a great place as far as trends go. Sitting somewhere in between minimal and pushing the envelope, silhouettes are slimmed down yet colors are bright; accessories are delicate while the cut of skirts, tops and pants are demanding of attention. Once again proving my point that fashion is truly a game of proportions! Finding something delicate with such a vibrant hue makes it just as much of a statement piece as a big, bold, chunky item.

So here are my accessory must-have’s of the season that strike that perfect balance of delicate and daring.
