As we head into the new year, we’re starting to think more about coming together, heading out and enjoying the good life again – and with that comes welcome thoughts of warm weather, strappy shoes and fewer layers.
Thankfully, updating your look each season doesn’t have to mean a major overhaul; often, it just comes down to a few thoughtfully chosen on-trend pieces that can help you adapt to the season and keep your look current. Here, we explore some of the freshest styles, that will have you strutting into the new year, back to the office and enjoying heading out again with confidence.
With ruffles, frills, lace and billowy sleeves all starring, we’re sensing a definite hint of romance and femininity in women’s fashion this season. Adding to the romance are silk and sheer fabrics in a mix of pastels, neutrals and pinks. Mixing it up, you’ll also see vintage-style florals, gingham and bold checks appearing.
PUMP UP THE VOLUME
When it comes to volume, right now there’s no such thing as minimal. From wide-leg pants and multi-tiered maxi skirts to puffy balloon sleeves, bigger is better. Voluminous culottes, baggy paper-bag jeans and oversized sweaters are also making their mark.
Forget what you wore as a teenager, tie-dye prints & block colours are having a new moment. This time around they’re appearing in more palatable neutrals and pastels, on everything from leggings and skirts to eveningwear. Another ‘70s throwback that’s been given new life is the paisley print, which you’ll now see in subtle earthy hues, violets and teals –for guys and girls.
Offsetting this season’s throwback prints we’re also seeing an abundance of rich earthy tones, soft pastels and barely-there neutrals right across the board, with on-trend colours including toffee, coffee, rust, mustard, cardamom, blush, mauve, rose and watermelon red.
