Brrr... is it cold in here? Oh, wait. That’s just Disney’s Frozen playing on my television for the 1,000th time! My two-year-old LOVES this show and requests it daily. Perhaps this explains how my eye has started noticing trends inspired by this hugely popular flick. Snowflakes, sweater patterns, nordic detailing... it’s a cold, cold world we live in. In the best way, of course.
Bundle up. We’re about to explore the Frozen frenzy and how it’s influencing so much.
Yes, the Frozen sisters certainly know how to pull off the braided look. And it’s clear from the braided business happening right now, that we want to do the same. Here are a few fun braid finds for you!

I just love the closing credits of Frozen, when the snowflake art is flashing across the screen in various shades and lights. Watch it, if you haven’t. It’s quite inspiring. Let’s see how letting it snow can warm up our trend talk.

Want to taste the Norwegian life for yourself (in a non-animated sense)? Disney has Adventures by Disney. Did you know about these? I only recently discovered them. And one of them is a trip through the areas of Norway that inspired much of the imagery in Frozen. Pretty cool, eh?
I suppose it seems only fitting to leave you with this little video number. See if you can pick out the trends discussed here today. If nothing else, I hope it helps you let a few things go that may not be adding anything of benefit to your life.
