Trends can get tricky. You never want to sink too much money into something that feels fleeting. But I've learned that fashion is cyclical, and most trends see the light of day again. More importantly, if you love something, buy it and don't sweat the small stuff.

But how do you engage with trends without looking like you're trying too hard? It's admittedly a delicate balance to strike between looking relevant yet effortless. Not to toot my own horn, but my friends have complimented me on my trend navigating skills. My secret is if you've got one piece that leans trendier, pair it with something a bit more classic. A little bit o' this, a little bit o' that, if you will. The strategy hasn't failed me yet, so I thought I'd share my current shopping list of pieces that walk the line. From a corset with a sculptural neckline to the most comfortable block heels, there's a little something for everyone.
