Wearing “Untrendy” Clothes


Everything in this picture is minimum three years old. Except for, funnily enough, the 90s middle school choker which I bought in LA last spring. It sucks that we feel like we always need to have new stuff, but that’s a whole other conversation. So what do you do when you buy something trendy and you’re stuck with it a couple years later, when it’s really NOT in style? There’s only one thing to do boo! Rock that ish!



Confidence is 90% of any outfit I promise you. Your clothes don’t make up who you are (Captain Obvious here). No one else will know your shorts are from first year university if you don’t tell them. This tank top was on sale for 10$ at forever21 FIVE years ago. It basically cost 5c a wear- cotton basics for the win!

One way to not have the untrendy clothes issue is to spend your money on your future, your education, your next property, and your business before you do on random clothes… Invest in yourselves….

      You’re an amazing soul Amy! These Lita platforms are pretty ugly though :/ Lol!

  • You look super stylish. If you buy quality items, they’ll still look fashionable years later. :]

      Thanks Carmen! And I agree! xx

  • Really like this post 🙂 I so agree with spending money on vacation a home and so on instead 💛
    Most of my clothes are a few years old, but I’m not really trendy 🙂


    • kandjasylla

      Good for you! Experiences are worth so much more than a cute Instagram shot. I still somewhat try to be trendy 🙁 But I’m working on it! x

  • You look like a super model love!!! Those legs are amazing! I love this casual look and how you styled it with the boots :). The top looks also great, love the back 🙂
    Have a great week ahead, beautiful!

  • Can I just point out the most obvious here? Your legs are to die for, I wish I have legs like yours. On to the outfit, I wish I have the guts to go braless, there’s so many hollow back top that I love but don’t wear because of that reason. I don’t buy clothes because of trend though, I just buy whatever that makes me feel and look good.

    You are such a babe. I love how simple yet chic this look is. Also, your hair looks amazing!

  • You look amazing. And nice outfit. https://palinpalin.blogspot.com/

  • I love your viewpoint on this, we don’t really have to spend large amounts of money on clothes because they’re trendy. We can definitely spend on our future so that THEN we can buy what we want. It’s all about how you wear what you already have, and nobody has to know they’re 5-year-old clothes like you said!

  • Girl, I think you could wear a potato sack and make it look trendy. I think this outfit looks great, and it sure beats the SEA of Breton tees that bloggers seem to wear in the summer! (seriously? your legs are ridiculously gorgeous). xx
