Yesterday I wrote about how to avoid buying mistakes. Once you have made the lists I suggested in that article, it’s time to start thinking about what you would like to find in the sales. The coming 2 months are my 2 big shopping months. All summer clothes will go on sale and this is usually the time where I try to buy some high quality clothes for the coming year. This year I plan to go shopping in Singapore, Amsterdam, Haarlem, London and probably some other European cities. Very excited!
Apart from getting those lists together and getting a clear idea about your style, it is also good to know which special items you are hoping to find. Luckily this has now been made a whole lot easier with the help of Pinterest. For the last couple of months I have kept track of everything I liked, so all I have to do now, is to go back to my boards and see what inspired me.
Adding more colour
Most of all I want to add more colour to my wardrobe. I feel that colour becomes more important as you go older and I found that I feel just so much better wearing it. Other people seem to agree. So here are the kind of items I’m looking for.
I have no idea how a jumpsuit would look on me, but if I bump into a nice one I will try it on!
Black and white
The other board that I will take inspiration from is the black and white board. Although I’m going to try and stay away from other neutrals, I find black and white such a modern and versatile look that I wouldn’t mind owning a few well-designed pieces. Since I get tired of coloured prints quite quickly, I think it may be great to add some black and white prints to my wardrobe.
Looking at future trends
I will also look at the collections for the coming Fall and look at my own trend predictions for Fall and Winter 2012. I need to know that whatever I’m going to buy is not completely out of style the coming season. Prints and colour are still going to be popular as well as one of my favorite looks: dresses over pants. Capris are still hot, and there will be lots of leather.
In the end I don’t have a very clear plan and I may end with completely different things than mentioned above. My main objective this year is wearable colour and I will just have to see what I bump into! Most of all I want to have fun shopping and find some unique new designs. I hope to come across a few good summer hats too!
