Knowing the difference between different styles of clothing and what colors and fabrics go together and for what seasons can help. Then, start adding small pieces of jewelry, such as a necklace, bracelet, or earrings. This can add a touch of trendiness to your look without making you uncomfortable or too over the top.
Another effective way to break into style gently is to experiment with different makeup looks. Makeup is a great way to stay up to date with the latest trends without having to buy all new clothes. Experimenting with different colors and textures can help you stay on trend without totally reinventing your look.

One of the most important things to remember when breaking into trends is to stay true to your own unique sense of style. There is no need to completely abandon how you dress in order to stay up to date with the latest. Staying on trend doesn’t mean that you have to change your entire wardrobe.
