One topic that I enjoy reading about and keeping a handle on is fashion and styles. Keeping with the times and trends can be a seriously hard thing to do. However it is worth the effort. And keeping up with what is happening in the wolrd today need not be so hard.
I have a few blogs and websites that I keep an eye on to watch what is coming up. Here in New Zealand we are fortunate in it that we have the polar opposite seasons to the Northern Hemisphere and we are generally 6 months behind when it comes to the average fashion trend.
Clothing styles from the US don't tend to take off too quickly here mainly due to the famboyance and OTT of some styles. What NZ does do however is a real good job of watching what England, and in particular London, fashion trends are.
So here are the pages and people that I like to keep an eye on from time to time.
You don't need to spend a fortune to keep it. Watch what trends are upcoming, buy in advance, and buy in the off seasons. Works for me.
