Winter has arrived, and just like every season, it has brought along its own slew of trends and popular styles that have infiltrated the stores and are being spotted on runways and by your favourite celebrities.
This season, wintery pastels, glittery adornments on just about everything, and oversized jumpers are the biggest trends and also, remarkably simple to incorporate into your current wardrobe.
One of the most notable trends on the runway this season was the mixture of earth tones and strong prints like plaid and flannel, as seen on the runways of Vivienne Westwood, Isabel Marant, and Tommy Hilfiger. The best way to get this look at home is to select jumpers and coats in warm, deep tones such as hunter green and earthy browns. Pairing them with a lumberjack style flannel shirt, as well as heavy layering, is ideal for the tops, but be sure to keep the bottoms simple so as to keep the look streamlined and uncomplicated.
Oversized knits are a crowd favourite, and this season is no exception. Jumpers are available in a variety of different colours and patterns, so you’re guaranteed to find some that reflect your own unique style. The best part is that oversized knits are statement pieces, so you can easily pair them together with a simple skirt and tights, or pair of dark skinnies, finished off with your go-to leather boots and be ready to go in minutes whilst looking effortlessly put together.
The glittery accents on clothing this season adds a magical holiday touch to just about anything. Metallic jumpers in thick knit with a sparkly silver finish, simple leggings accentuated with a sequined glitter trim down the sides in either gold or silver can be paired with a simple sheer blouse and tank, or your favourite knit to make a simple, elegant style this season.
The one thing to keep in mind is that trends do go in and out of style, and if you find one that strikes your fancy, it’s ideal to search for pieces that encompass the general look of the particular trend, but are able to be paired with other pieces in your wardrobe and repeated the following year. Go for the clothes that will work no matter what the current trend, and avoid any expensive, extremely bold statement pieces that you won’t get more than a few wears out of. Keep in mind that style isn’t about following all the trends – it’s about being inspired by them and making a look that’s distinctly you.
