- Coco Chanel
Hello on... Saturday?! I have completely lost track of time and that is why it turns out that I haven't written a post in two days. The sad thing is that I am still not doing something productive but I am rather indulging in laziness and a bit of shopping. I wanted to say goodbye to March with a great Lookbook but it will be a great Trend Spotter instead.
You have probably noticed that the last few seasons bare midriffs have been on. I realized it quite recently because I can't really embrace the idea.
Why I generally don't support it and which is the small part which I actually like:
Let's be honest - not many people can pull this look off. Moreover, I am sure that 97% of the girls don't feel that their abs are suitable to be shown like this. Bare midriffs can be quite tricky - if you don't manage to create an appropriate outfit (those that I've chosen are really decent especially Sarah Jessica Parker in the blue shirt) you may fail miserably. If you don't match your clothes in a stylish way or you turn up with your bare belly on the wrong occasion, it may even be embarrassing. I remember how this was fashionable when I was a kid and some teenage singers were the fad among us. And please,please don't forget that not every trend is to be liked and necessarily worn. Just be honest with yourself when deciding whether you can afford to show off your midriff.
If I've killed your enthusiasm, don't hate me. I believe that you can find a really nice way to show bare midriff and if you feel confident enough about it, why not? As I said I like Sarah Jessica Parker's shirt look a lot and Jessica Szohr's outfit as well. There is a note of the 50's in that trend which I support.
So to sum up, this is a bit of a "no,no" for me but if you know that you can style it good, then do it. Obviously, there are some ways this could look nice worn with confidence.
What do you think about it and have you tried it out? I'd be happy if someone decides to share.
Tomorrow I will be flying to Bulgaria for Easter. The whole thing is bittersweet for me because to honest, I prefer to stay in London. But since I have no choice, I will be writing a sleepy post tomorrow night from the airport because I will have wait a few hours there.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for some nice lookbooks from my favourite places back home!
