Winter Edition: Day 3 > Embrace a Trend

Sometimes it's easiest to just stay in our own little comfort zone of classics and basics and ignore passing trends. But for tomorrow I want you to pick a trend that intrigues you and go for it. Neon nails? Sure! Faux fur? Heck yes. Red pants? You know I love 'em.

Other trends worth trying:
-Skinny jeans
-Winged eyeliner
-Drop waist dresses (think silhouettes from the 20s)
-Polka dots - or stripes, if that's easier. They're still hanging on.
-Ballerina bun - probably dying but I refuse to let it go.
-70s style- wide legged jeans and maybe a little fringe (fun!)
-Tangerine (Pantone color of the year!) or graphic B&W
-I hesitate to even say this caps. Apparently they're a thing this year. Several designers included them in their spring collections. Knock yourself out.

Try some fancy nails! Crazy manicures are popping up all over the place. The Beauty Department has some good nail art tutorials [source]

You can hop in on the tail end of the braid trend or try it's updated cousin The Twist (pretty!). [source]

Neon - fall's fun and funky homage to the 80s. Original source unknown.
Animal prints - I've had trouble coming around on this one...I just did it. They were in while I was in high school. How did they come back so soon?? Original source unknown.
Faux fur - dying to hop on board this one. I adore Suzannah's DIY vest! Source
Colored pants - such an awesome and unexpected way to add color! Source 

Come back tomorrow to link up your blog post or head over to the Flickr group and add your photo there!
