I've never been trendy, but I do love clothes and looking nice. I've found I can wear trendy skinny jeans with some more off-beat, whimsical tops and that looks current. I also adore plaid and polka dots, which are generally classic and trend-proof. And I try to wear on-trend shoes, which is not easy because I have big feet and almost always have to order shoes online (try on and return, try on and return - the expense! sigh).
Are you "stylish but not fashionable"? What are your tips?
