Fashion matters. It’s a woman’s safe haven in expressing herself for she can be vain, modest, or perky in her own way. Ladies love fashion so much they usually devote half of their time to dressing up in beautiful and dainty clothes, because it gives them confidence and self-satisfaction everyday.
Another great thing about fashion (whether trendy or not) is it defines the kind of lifestyle you have. However, you need to know the trends to see which look you’re aiming for. Trends can be followed or not, but in this world, there are four kinds of women abiding by them.
But the question is, how do you differentiate each trend?
Four Styles of Woman
AVA has prepared a style catalogue to help every woman dress, based on her career and personality.
The Sporty Chick
Who would have thought that your old pair of yoga pants would become a huge trend this season? Yes, activewear is listed as one of the hottest trends this 2018.
Athletic wear is not just an after-gym look, it can also be your everyday style. Make sure you’re nailing the right trend by wearing your favorite gym wears with your best-loved sneakers.

The Lady Boss Trendsetter
Some career women dress too much for occasions, such that they look older than their age. Never make that mistake again by listening to AVA’s style catalogue.
Every working girl has the heart of a fashionista. Everyone wants to look good in a professional yet chic manner.
The secret to looking fab while under pressure is to mix and match, ladies. Make sure you’re mixing patterns of the same kind. You can do monochromatic colors, earth tones with earth tones, and pastel with pastel. You can also try playful patterns and basic styles with your tops and bottoms.
Don’t forget to play with complimentary colors as well (You may need to look at the color wheel for this). This style will make your look coordinated as you aim to be a trendy working girl this season.
Now that you’re a trendsetter, complete your look with a favored pair of heels. Just decide if you’re going with block, kitten, or flat heels.

Every fashionista lady boss loves happy hour, as everyone has gone through tight deadlines, sudden meetings, and unexpected OTs at some point, making parties is one of the best stress relievers.
But how do you revel in the right trend? The secret is all glitz and glamour. Anything sparkly and sexy is in for the party. Get that crisp white dress in your closet and partner it with those shiny leather shoes, or buy those black leather trousers that you’ve been eyeing for the last few weeks.
You can set your own style when partying. There’s not much of a rule to it. Just make sure you look glamorous in every scene.
As fashion evolves, women change their style. Their personality and career reflect upon the way they dress. Each one of them can be a sporty chic, miss laid-back, lady boss trendsetter, or edgy babe of their own, but you can be all of these trends at once. Just make sure you know the rule in the fashion scene.
