Spend, Save, Splurge

September is over, the month of fashion weeks has come and gone... In contrast to previous spring collections there was a move away from minimalist tendencies to a more fun direction for next summer. So with the shift, what trends should you invest in now that you’ll be able to wear later?

Splurge on existing trends that will still remain current for seasons to come.

All White

StyleStaples

Spend on pieces, both garments and accessories, with elements from the 1970s. This is key to updating your look for now and next season. The catwalks were full of inspiration, the main trends being;

Wide Leg Denim

Nothing creates an instant 70s look more than swapping your skinnies for a wide leg jean.

Culottes


They are a 70s staple, but this season they get a modern update.

Orange

Try this trend; it was an influential colour of the 1970s.

Retro Floral

Keeping with the 70s vibe, florals are appliquéd flowers, delicate beading, embroidery and pattern.

Suede

A key fabrication of the 70s, reinterpreted this season in coats and jackets.

Save on trends that may only last you one season!

Gingham

This season choose a gingham garment in a modern silhouette.

Ruffles

The update? They were flouncy and feminine in ultra girly styling.

Sheer

If this trend is for you, it’s time to get used to the idea of showing a bit more skin next season.
