Kick start your new year on a high and get to know the must have trends for this year!
Say hello to this season’s hottest shade – but be careful how you wear it or you could end up looking like a bumble bee. It’s the shade of the season with celebs including Emma Stone, Jessica Alba and Sam Faiers.
Before you say “that’s not for me” trust us when we say there is a shade of yellow for everyone, find the right colour for you to avoid a yellow fashion disaster you’ll want to forget. If you are dark skinned then make sure you rock the neon yellow shades like Frankie Bridge. If you’re fair skin opt for a more muted palette or pastel yellows and mustards.
If the colour still scares you then pull off the trend with accessories instead of bold clothing, for example a yellow statement bag!
The monochrome trend is like a keen friend that you have known forever and you just can’t and won’t phase it out. Thankfully the easy trend is here again this season with a slight update, taking the classic colour combination and putting them with various textures, patterns and silhouettes.
Block panels and pieces of monochrome across skirts, tops, trousers and dresses are the cool and fresh look making sure that you avoid any OTT print that can make monochrome a bit of a headache. Beyonce is a massive fan of this trend and pulls it off perfectly!
If the idea of going head to toe in this trend leaves you pining for some colour then simple team some bright coloured accessories to balance things out but let the monochrome do most of the work. For example a bright pink or red statement bag or jacket.
Blue and White
If black and white is too stark for you then blue and white is the more subtle alternative that could be for you. Give it a try when you feel like making a statement without having to try and match colours or wear something bright. This could be done simply with blue jeans and a white top or thin knit. Also you could find a blue and white patterned dress or the very popular patterned trousers or brave an all white outfit and team with blue accessories and statement bag.
One Shoulder Cuts or Cold Shoulder
Surprisingly the shoulders have become one of the sexiest parts of your body so now after a long winter of covering up this trend is the perfect opportunity to show this off. A twist on the 2014’s off the shoulder trend is here with its completely exposed one shoulder cuts. Or if you are a little wary of showing off your whole shoulder than the ‘cold shoulder’ cuts are the perfect alternative for you, with their gorgeous cut out details. This look is easily dressed up and down and there is no need to accessorise as the bare shoulder does all the talking you need.
Roomy Denim Boyfriend Jean
Jeans are an essential any season, but this year it’s all about roomy baggy cuts. Make sure your careful when wearing this style and keep your top slim to create a cool contrast.
Baggy boyfriend jeans are going to be very popular and will pack a punch in any wardrobe, especially when you style them like Kim Kardashian and many other style queens. Simply team with a white tee, tailored jacket or blazer and funky it up with some excellent accessories and of course a statement bag. This look is perfect for a casual spring day with a pair of Converse or sandals and can be just as great for a dressier look by teaming with a pair of strappy heels and matching clutch bag!
Something we haven’t seen for a few years is the military look and this year the military greens are back! Make sure you choose from the streamlined military style pieces to ensure you pull the trend off right. Teaming with gold metalwork on handbags, clutches, watches and jewellery makes for a simple statement and gives the modern twist for every fashionistas appeal.
Rihanna is among many fashion savvy stars that have always been a fan of this edgy trend. Wearing camouflage pieces along with khaki combats and structured jackets paired with funky accessories for a personal touch. Team with a red lipstick that packs a powerful punch to the look and adds a flirtatious vibe to the otherwise masculine style.
