It’s our job as personal stylists to interpret the trends each season and decide which ones work best for our clients. However, there’s a rule of thumb we follow when it comes to purchasing trend-driven pieces—make sure your basics are covered before you buy anything trendy and stick to of-the-moment “third pieces” such as handbags, shoes, jewelry, and jackets.
VT founder and creative director, Jesse Garza, describes VT’s simple trend rule, “Think of your timeless staples as the base of your outfit—or the cake as we like to call it—and accessorize with on trend pieces—the frosting—like this season’s it bag. Most importantly, only follow trends that speak to your personal style!”
