Inject a new piece to give your wardrobe a fresh start…

How are you feeling about your current wardrobe? Despite having worn very little of it in the last year, you may still be craving something new: not because you NEED it but to mark the fresh start we all deserve. Whether it’s a new bag (remember those), a new skirt (hello waist-down dressing!) or a beautiful pair of heels (oh come on – you know you want to): whatever it is that will give you a lift, this one’s for you.

As someone who avoids ‘high fashion’ trends I thought I’d share 3 trends that have been given a new twist yet remain forever cool and accessible. Many are on my wish list and may become part of yours. If so, I hope they inject some ‘newness’ into your current wardrobe to give it a lift – Enjoy!

Relaxed Denim

We all have a favourite denim in our wardrobe. This season designers such as Valentino, Paco Rabanne and Victoria Beckham showcased them in a more slouchy, relaxed, and effortless way. I’m a bit extreme when it comes to denim – I either go skinny or boyfriend but this season I’m going to experiment with straight cut and kick flare – care to join?

Relaxed jeans, embellished sliders and a chic cashmere knit – oh the joy of these pieces worn individually or together…

Shirt Dresses with a twist

The shirt dress is back (I’m not sure it ever left!) but if you feel the ‘classic’ version is not for you, you’re in luck – there are many new variations to choose from including: sleeveless, cut out and striped. Worn with flats, heels or trainers – belted, relaxed or over trousers - it’s fresh, it’s relaxed – it works.

Shirt dress with neutral knotted leather sandals, oversized shades and beautiful layered necklaces – the epitomie of chic

Colour Pop Combinations

Every season, designers play with colour combinations and this season is no different. Green & beige, red and blue and burgundy and pink work beautifully together. If colour combinations aren’t for you – why not opt for one colour (your favourite) and team (yes ‘team’) with simple white/neutral accessories to keep it fresh and relaxed. See the difference it makes to your mood as well as your look.

Remember the Style Post is here to inspire you to play around with your style and your wardrobe and see what works for you – and if you need some help, you know where I am.
