Although the end of one-year approaches, now is your opportunity to get ahead of the fashion fads for 2015, with our edit of the best new-season pieces, inspired by international runway trends!
A sneak peak at the 11 clever trends to look for in the mall for 2015
Sixties Revival – “Retro meets modern” for a timeless-chic feel. Use subtle nods from the 60’s in a current way – Graphic prints, pewter palettes and the polo neck are crucial.
Midi Skirts – How to maximize midi-length skirts? Heels, Heels, Heels.
Opt for pleats this season and balance the volume with a slim fitting jersey or try an oversized top with a pencil skirt.
Bright’s with black – It is the season’s power pairing! If, you shy away from bold colour, then don’t despair and pair electric-pink/chartreuse-green with black for an easy to wear solution.
T-Bar Shoes – Heels or flats, you will love this retro inspired style.
Animal prints – A leopard CAN change its spots! Make way for snake-skin, but don’t totally banish the big cat! Despite this, it’s all about the return of the snake – Python print is everywhere, from sweaters to bags to statement accessories. Pair it with neutrals for an office and corporate look and at the same time unleash the sexy animal in you.
Tomato red – If you wear one colour this season, make sure it’s this one, just take great care to get the shade right. Less harsh than the brights, this shade flatters most skin tones, so make sure you invest in at least one hero item to wear as a highlight colour.
Masculine tailoring – It’s a classic for a reason. Just apply a few updates to keep it fresh. To inject a subtle feminine touch, accessorise with metallic sandals or a high shine bag!
Quirky accessories – We can’t resist this season’s penchant for bright logos, smiley faces and pop-art styling, so get quirky and get noticed.
Harmonica bags – Stylish and useful, could you ask for anything more?! Featuring a multitude of compartments, this style is one of the most versatile bags you can invest in – wear it across the body or hold it as a clutch.
Faux fur – the secret is to wear it without it wearing you! The trend is not about faux fur masquerading as real fur, so keep it chic and real and complement it with fun colours and unexpected items such as shoes and clutches!
Chunky knits – Texture and shape give the new woolens instant pullover power. A statement knit works equally well with a sleek pencil skirt as with mannish trousers – it’s all down to the cut. This season, oversized and tight fits provide a myriad of choices.
So get going on the latest trends and be the first to make THAT statement.
