Predicting Trends?

I was noticing something in my analytics – that a post I made about mix and match nail polish back in April had started picking up. I’m not the only one who noticed this back in April so it’s not like I’m claiming to be some sort of genius here. I just find it interesting.

Predicting fashion trends - mix and match nail polish

I have started to see more of this on pinterest and I’ve spotted it a couple of times locally. Mostly the two toned nails with most nails painted one color and then 2-3 nails painted something else usually vibrant or glittery.

I have actually done this several times now myself as well instead of just compiling a bunch of photos from other people.

I’m wondering if things like Pinterest will escalate the speed or adoption of certain trends though. I don’t think I currently subscribe to enough fashion magazines to tell how they’re affecting this trend in particular.

My next prediction? We’ll start seeing denim shirts paired with brights and whites in the spring. I gathered that in October which wasn’t exactly the right season for that look but I do really like it. It’s almost timeless looking though so I don’t know if it’s can also be trendy. 🙂
