It seems like no matter what season, some form of the floral trend will always remain as a frontrunner in the fashion world. As the new year commences,  florals have been blooming into what appears to be influenced by 60’/70’s pattern aesthetic. There is a certain sense of romanticism about the cuts and color choices of these dresses. From an assortment of textures from flowy chiffon to a thicker silk feel, this trend sparks up some vintage fun. You can never go wrong with some added details like neckties or faux fur.

TREND: Polka Dots

Rethinking the dots: the more you realize how simple yet fun the classic polka dot pattern can be, the more you should introduce it into our wardrobe for 2018. Polka dots have been associated as being feminine or adolescent yet, they can be reinvented in the way you style them. Adding layers of accessories, bold colours and textures can counteract what once was traditional and create something of spunky importance. Their dainty feel has much elegance and can spruce up any mono-coloured dress without being overbearing on the eyes.

The power suit is here to stay. This autumn is filled with bold feminine power thanks to this suit trend. This new silhouette with a more “tuck at the waist” feel creates a softer feminine cut. These suits are not just for work wear, they can be dressed up or down depending on personal preference.

A great way of tying in colour is through accessories (belts, purses and chunky jewelry) or you can go bold as ever with a monochrome feel like this head-to-toe red suit.

Forget the basic midi/max minimalist design and bring on the layers of fringe and ruching! This autumn is filled with dresses that display a complex assortment of detailing and design. Neutral colours may always be a go-to for simplicity, yet adding ruching and textures from lace detailed shoulders to asymmetrical necklines helps amplify this chic style that will definitely turn heads.

Last Minute Tips:

1.Colour theory is everything this year.

Pantone announced its colour of the year: Ultra Violet, and from this moment on purple hues have been all over!

Not only has purple taken over, but bright bold colours with a 70’s influence are popular, allowing a more whimsical and fun vibe. Monochrome has been in fashion since last year but it’s clear that it’s here to stay.
