Most Helpful Girl
I mean, you don't have to follow the trends, as someone else said. I personally just buy whatever both appeals to me and flatters my body. I love self- expression, and I think that's what makes a person's clothing style attractive and what actually makes a person look good - I was known in my college as "the girl who always dresses fantastic" and constantly got compliments, despite me not following barely any of the trends. All i did was buy things that stuck out to me as interesting (making sure they flatter my body, of course), and just... accessorized with them. It's really just about getting things you like, and adding a personal flare (matching accessories, neat shoes, ect), and knowing what shapes work with your body. If not, why did people like my non-trendy clothing? Unless you're in a strict clique or something, dressing any way you feel confident and comfortable should not be an issue... Forcing yourself to wear a style you're not into does nothing for your looks or your confidence. Anybody can put on trending yoga pants and a Hollister shirt, but it doesn't mean it "works" for everyone, if you see what I'm saying.
But if you absolutely MUST follow the trends, floral print tends to be in right now, as well as Native American inspired patterns. As for helping you find out what flatters you... I need to know your body type/shape. Depending on your height, curves, ect, certain types/shapes of shirts could look different on you than they would someone else.1
