Recently I introduced my friends to the concept of microtrends. Over brunch and Bellinis, one of them had expressed to me just how much she loved the red colour that’s suddenly popping up across the market, but that she was reluctant to commit to it. I get it; when big trends bulldoze their way onto the fashion scene, it can be overwhelming. Sure, the trend in question feels “current”, but that alone isn’t reason enough to invest in it—especially on mass. Instead, if a trend piques your interest, genuinely feels like it’ll add value to your wardrobe and can see how it will help you hone your style or explore a new facet of it, then it could be worth trying, but on a smaller scale. Cue the microtrend.
