Today's video is quite a fun one. I asked over on Instagram Stories for you to send over the trends you hate; It was so fun reading through them all and actually quite shocking in parts I must say. I thought I'd style them up in a video to see if I could change your mind, just for a lil bit of fun.
I've created some mood boards below too of some seriously cool gals rocking the trend to the fullest, in my opinion these are some of the best examples on how to rock the trends. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this video and of course whether I've managed to change your mind on some of your most hated of trends.
Cycling Shorts- You came to me passionately about how much you dislike cycling shorts and I have to say, I'm with you on this one! I thought it would be a fun challenge to see if I could sway both myself and you on this one. Above are some examples of how I think styling cycling shorts is done well.
Neon- Another tricky one to get right but not a trend I'm totally apposed to... It is colour after all.
Cowboy Boots- Now this one I disagree with and couldn't believe how many of you said that you disliked cowboy boots! I'm a sucker for them as you'll know from my Instagram in particular. In the video I've styled them in a very simple way so perhaps that could sway you?
Bucket Hats- You hate... I LOVE!
Tie Dye- This trend is something I love due to the colourful, tomboy-ish and nostalgic vibes. TOTALLY get why it isn't for everyone but perhaps my take on Tie Dye tailoring could sway you?
Chunky Trainers- I think this was the most hated trend from you all and I get it, I really do. But I personally cannot get enough of it! You know me and my shoes <3<3<3
Socks & Sandals- The trend that offended me the most was socks & sandals, I can't bloody believe how many of you said you didn't like this one! You know I'm a sucker for this trend so head to the video to see if I've changed your mind...
That’s such a fun idea for a video! Will watch and report back on whether you changed my mind on some! I already know I love the bucket hat trend, but with a funky childish print like your leopard one. I used to rock a B&W leopard one with a faux-fur jacket when I was a kid hehe
Bravo for your new blog design, it’s gawgeous xx

SO glad you like the idea of the video babes. Did you get chance to watch? I’d love to hear your thoughts x

This is such a fun idea! I’m definitely not a huge fan of the cycling shorts trend, but I really do love the cowboy boots trend, as well as bucket hats so I’m surprised that they were so unpopular! I am obsessed with the Ganni cowboy boots that you styled with that gorgeous Rixo dress in the desert in your last post!

SO glad you think so Sydney, it was SO fun to put together! Hope you enjoyed it x
You managed to make me seriously consider getting cycle shorts for walking the dog / errands and it’s a trend I absolutely hate 😂 Loved the video!
Megan Ellaby says
HAHA go on girl! And so damn comfy too x
I got into the cycling short trend by chopping mine off a bit so they actually look like long knickers but are amazing to wear under my summer dresses still allowing to bike, move, dance around without flashing haha. Not a style desicion maybe but definitelly practical! All the other trends are amazing as well, unfortunately my head and hair is to big to wear bucket hats haha. Love the video, telling all my friends here in Austria about you 🙂
