Trends come and go and when you get to a ‘certain age’ you see them come and go by again and again! I’d guess that approximately 20 years is the full cycle for a fashion trend.
When I was a teen in the 80’s it was the 60’s style we all wanted to imitate.Now the 90’s are back with a boom!
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]I see trends all the time in the blogging and instagram world that I frequent. The top ‘big girl blogs’ will adopt a look or a colour and it will be picked up, diluted and imitated by everyone else down the line, in some form or another, am I right?[/perfectpullquote]
What makes a fashion Trend ?
Is it when everyone is wearing the same thing? Or is it when the haute couture designers introduce a look that is filtered down to us first via Vogue and then eventually it will end up in Grazia for the masses to adopt ?

The Sock and Shoe Fashion Trend.
Now dont get me wrong I love to experiment with looks, colours and new fashion trends. Plus as I have said many times, your age should never ever restrict you from trying new things or even new trends.
I truly believe it is one of the things that will keep your spirit young at heart.
However I am drawing the line at this trend, it is not age that is preventing me from going with this one. It is vanity I actually think it looks ugly and slightly ridiculous in a theatrical way. It is definitely not sexy either. My other half was laughing hysterically as I swished across the floor in my shoes and socks!
A Personal Opinion
Please remember this is just my personal opinion, I have no wish to offend anyone who is already running with this fashion trend. It is just not for me.

I did however pick up 5 pairs of these pretty socks in the sale. However, I can assure you this is the last time you will be seeing them. I will be tucking them firmly inside my boots from this day forward!

It simply begs the question does it not? What do you think of the socks with shoes trend will you be wearing it in summer 2018? Or am I alone in this one, love to know? Leave me a note in the comments girls!
Did you go with the Kitten heel trend last year? I did!
