This season’s biggest trend is, by, far bear coats. I have been seeing them everywhere and I didn’t quite get the hype until I got my hands on one. Add the animal print, a lot of lace, the oversize knitwear, the contrast between masculine and feminine and you will have everything you need. Let’s see what you can do with the help of some really cool combinations and tricks.
The really big scarfs
Anyone watching the runways might have guessed that this would follow on from the current knitwear trend. Choose chunky wool or classy cashmere in neutrals or classic colours, bundle yourself up in a faux-fur version, and have fun in flannel.
Evening clothes for the daywear
That a sequined anything has become work appropriate may boggle the mind, but in truth a spangled piece is a wardrobe must-have. On anything from a boxy tee or a racer-back tank to a tunic dress or a draped skirt, twinkling with embroidered shine is de rigueur. It’s simply a matter of transposing the glitz factor up or down.
The matchy matchy trend
Firstly, from Stella to Whistles, there’s been the surprise success of this season’s pyjama set trend. Secondly, designers and the high-street are backing matching print top-and-bottom sets for next season too. The new style is really elegant, with pants being cropped or super long, the key is to always wear high heels and nice shoes.
The fluffy pieces
Puffy-fluffy clothes and corduroy items are the trend of this year! Yu can try a jacket, a normal or sleeveless coat and always be perfect. Black and white of course, but also pastels, with baby blue and pink at the top of the list. Fluffy is cool because it will always keep you warm and add a touch of glam to everything else you are wearing.
The animal print
For this season, even though leopard is still very much included in the trend’s scope, the trend has gone beyond what it was before to encompass everything from snake and croc to zebra and giraffe-inspired prints, with all kinds of styling from simple to statement-making in the mix. From tops to skirts to dresses to bags, you will find everything you could possibly need to make the look yours without going a penny over budget. Bags and shoes are always a good idea.
Masculine and feminine
Masculine, feminine, or both? The line between gendered dressing continues to blur, but in this case I am talking about the amazing possibility to mix together a lace dress, which is super sexy and romantic, with the tweed coat, which is masculine and straight. Finding these contrasts will help you to build a very cool, personal style which will always be interesting.
The large coats
They will literally embrace you and this is all you need to know! They are big and belted, usually in some nice prints, like animals, flowers, dots. But you can choose also something more classic like the camel or the black coat. If you’re not one for head-to-toe tailoring, look for an unexpected combination instead.
Don’t be afraid of white
There’s no faster way to look unapologetically fresh to death than pairing white on white. This wintry look is achievable in countless iterations—from elegant evening ensembles to lightened up knitwear, and killer white boot looks. White trousers and a heavy gauge knit are the perfect winter white combo. Add some gold accessories and you will be perfect!
