I hate trends. In their deepest corners they suck my innocent love for fashion and like a fly I stick to the glue that holds the few moments of their impermanent glories together. Then I wear it because I like it during the Fashion Month and when I spot it on everyone a few weeks later I hate it. Then I hate that I have to hate something I love because everyone is wearing it. Then I realize I'm being childish and wear it anyway - hashtag trendyproblems.
But when I spot the trend on Etsy I feel less mainstream then if I saw it at Target, so like the modern anti-hipster-oftentimes-a-hipster person I am, I indulge and wear said fad till Tiffany puts her hand up in protest. If it's comfortable - you understand - I'm still wearing it till I and only I decide it is indeed over. The proof: this
week's year's preoccupation with which I'm captivated has been the always-comfortable oversized situation that the early 00's and my high school self rejected so vehemently.
Oversized tops work for summer AND winter and oversized accessories are just awesome, for lack of a more appropriate adjective. Look:
