TREND : OPULENCE
For this trend ive compiled three mini trends together to make OPULENCE. Think lux fabrics and a heavy dose of Grandma chic.
Ive assembled my favourites from the catwalks, high street and thrown in a few examples from my own wardrobe. This trend you would easily strike gold hitting up the charity shops.
Outfit post at the end too.
This luxurious fabric that is everywhere this winter. The fabric of queens past and your grandmas plush curtains, easy way to exhibit those opulent vibes.
Velvet top from Primark £6 - Velvet fabrics found in Berwick Street
Step 2 equals ruffles. Adding to your opulence as you have all that extra cash to spend on material to adorn your items with ruffles.
Cute ruffle top, perfect for layering - Pussy bow can add ruffles to neckline, Primark £12
Another note towards extravagant home wear, this jazzy material will make you look extra classy. Have a browse around charity shops too and ive sure you'll find some vintage gems.
Pink ruffles and make a choker from this opulent Chinese jacquard style fabric - These 2 skirts mixed together would make an amazing Jacquard.
My favourite of the steps to achieve this opulent trend, the accessories. Think pearls, jewels and everything in between. As if you raided you grandmas jewelry box of vintage amazingness. Faux fur is another notable element.
Made these huge pearl earings inspired by the Asos ones, much cheaper too - Update bags with jazzy straps.
Now I wouldn't say that I have completely encompassed the trend within this outfit, but as altogether as the Opulence trend is slightly out of my comfort zone I thought I would just take elements and put together an outfit. I've mixed Extra Accessories and Ruffle on my top half and juxtaposed the look with my bottom half being sporty with track style bottom and trainer.
