I’m usually not a trendy person. I like what I like and often the newest trends are just not to my liking or style. Simply liking something because it’s in is humorous, and often trends just die out and you’re suddenly not cool for liking them anymore. For example, so up to any trend follower and ask about feather extensions, they’ll promptly tell you that is so 2011. Puh-lease.
However I’ve found quite a few trends lately that I have loved, and while some of these may not be in anymore, they were within the last few years and I love them simply because I do.
Floral is a very vintage pattern. Dating back to the romantic victorian era, the 50s, 80s, and 90s. I remember staying far from florals in the 90s and early 2000′s and now that my style has changed I just adore it. It has such a feminine classic feel when done right.
Chevron has been a trend a while and while I know many are sick of it I only recently found my love for it lately, so my love for those zig zags is still strong!
Triangles, arrows, geometric lines, they are very in right now and I just love it! Such a simple clean aesthetic to the, they just look pretty.
Galaxy’s are one trend I’m extremely in love with, which is ironic because at first I just didn’t get it. But now that I have seen the many uses for this pattern; clothes, shoes, art etc I just adore them. Those pink, purple, black and blue swirls of stars are lovely.
In honor of my love for Galaxies I’m going to be posting a Photoshop tutorial on how to make a galaxy pattern! So stay tuned as I am currently working on it.
Have a lovely day!
