It seems as though life flashes past at warp speed and fashion is no different; as the clouds cover the beautiful summer sunshine, thoughts fall to the trends of the new season. Gone are the neon brights, slashed hem lines and over-use of sequins; in its place are dramatic deep skirt splits, opulent shades and engulfing styles.
It can be a mine field picking a trend to replicate in day-to-day life, but these handy tips should make it a much less painful experience. Remember fashion should be fun, not a full-time job! Here are our top 3 trend picks along with a few ‘Do’s and Don’ts’:
Yes, you read that correctly. More than likely one of the hottest trends for the season is already in your wardrobe. It’s up to you which all over print you go for, be in animal print or tropical.
DO play with different colours of print this season. Be brave and move away from classic neutrals and rapidly towards a jewel shade instead.
DON’T overdo it. A little print can go a long way, so pick wisely and make sure it suits you. There is no point wearing a trend for the sake of it; remember your body shape to ensure the perfect print.
We all have a tendency to wander towards dark shades in winter, but nothing embraces the dark nights quite like a flash of bright white.
DO remember to consider the weather. Although white may remind you of summer, the brisk winter wind most definitely won’t; when choosing staples go for chunky knits and wool jackets.
DON’T think you can wear winter white only for a night out; a chic wool coat is a fantastic replacement for your usual work-wear mac.
Nothing signifies the welcoming of winter better than the joy of a new warm coat, and this year the trend is very much heading towards the extravagant.
DO embrace the trend and commit to an oversized statement jacket, be it a full length coat or a simple jacket with exaggerated shoulders.
DON’T go oversized on everything. Remember to balance it out with slim fitting garments, such as tucked in shirts and straight leg jeans to really give your statement piece an opportunity to shine.
Remember with every new season and wave of trends, the best way to showcase them is layered over a wonderful base of fantastic fitting lingerie, so make the most of your wardrobe with a smooth silhouette.
