New Year, New Wardrobe: Our Top 5 Trend Picks

74

Have you kissed 2014 away yet? Well, we have the inside scoop on what’s going to be taking over the fashion scene in 2015. So, start taking notes on what to look out for while window-shopping.

The New Year is going to be all about patterns, polished designs, luxurious shoes, and Pantone’s colour of the year, Marsala (yes, impactful, full-bodied, and subtly seductive like the wine)!

Here are our Top 5 picks to style yourself in 2015:

  1. Fringe Benefits

Yeah, you read correctly. Fringed-edge clothing and accessories are back and are looking oh-so-good! But this time around, the fringe is more sophisticated and minimal. Start small with a fringed-edge cross-body bag to ease into the trend before you go in for the big league pieces like fringed-edge skirts, sweaters, dresses, and tops.

  1. Jungle Calling

The print fever in 2015 is going to be of a tropical kind. So start thinking about how you’re going to get creative with flora-inspired prints like palm-tree prints on tees and crazy tropical colours, like lush greens, hot oranges, royal blues, bright yellows, moss greens, and more.

  1. Prison Stripes

Stripes is that one pattern that is so deeply ingrained in our fashion psyche that it’s hard to let go even in 2015! They’re back with a bang this year and they’re stronger, sharper and bolder. In 2015, we will see an avalanche of horizontal stripes on tees, tops, jackets, dresses, and trousers. If you think horizontal stripes don’t work for your body type, then throw on a colour-blocked jacket to cut the lines and create a slimming visual appeal, or wear the print on the slimmest part of your body.

  1. Mega Florals

Imagine going about your day covered in flowers, feeling so sensual and fragrant. Sounds like a scene from your favourite childhood fairytale? Nope, it’s fashion 2015!

This year, floral prints have gone 3D with unusual textures and avant-garde designs. So, stash away your cutesy floral print clothes and keep a lookout for mega-sized flowers that look edgy and rebellious!

  1. Tartan Tales

Fashion seems to be having an enduring love affair with tartan – the classic print from Scotland. With this trend making a strong comeback yet again this year, we recommend climbing aboard this style train with this Ginger dress from Lifestyle, for some plaid-related ease.

Well, we can’t wait to see how you’re going to nail the fashion trends of 2015. May the fashion gods be ever in your favour!
