One of the reasons a brand new year is so exciting is because of the fresh fashion slate it brings. So many potential outfits to have fun with and so many trends to dabble with and enjoy. I think it’s also a great time to look at your style and examine where you can afford to freshen things up and push the boundaries a little. If you’re looking for a little outfit inspiration to get you started then you’ve come to the right place. Keep scrolling for some of the best ideas to steal from Instagram…
Invest in a tapered pant
A cropped tapered pant in a neutral colour will take you through the next few months. Work it back with your favourite tee or cami and sandals for the ultimate in effortlessly chic looks.
A simple striped shirt will prove to be a worthwhile wardrobe addition when you see how many wears you get out of it. From jeans to shorts, it’s a definite fashion workhorse.
There’s something fresh about linen, especially in white. An outfit like this is understated and elegant and will work for myriad occasions.
Go for a co-ord set
A co-ordinating two piece is a great shortcut to looking put together and the best bit is you can wear them separately to get double bang for your fashion buck.
Try a coloured denim skirt
Mix up your look by injecting a little colour into your denim wardrobe. A knee length skirt is also one that can be styled in various ways and will take you through to autumn.
Layer your accessories
Wearing a few gold necklaces together is an impactful way to let your accessories take centre stage. Just ensure they’re all at different lengths for a cohesive look.
Make your back a feature
We often forget that a flash of skin in the back is equally as alluring. This year, look for pieces with a great back detail to amp up the glamour.
White shirt + denim = a winner
A classic white shirt and denim shorts is still a reliable outfit option during the summer months so don’t forget about it! It’s also so easy to put together and can be dressed up or down according to your shoes and accessories.
Go one shoulder
We’ve definitely embraced the off the shoulder silhouette the last few seasons but this year, look to the one shoulder as a great alternative. Sexy and practical (let’s face it, sometimes off the shoulder styles can be a bit fussy to wear) it’s the ideal option for a night out.
Add a belt
Belt up a feminine skirt with an edgy belt to take it into a different direction. You could also do this with dresses in your wardrobe to equal effect.
Wrap it up
A wrap dress is such a flattering style that I think everyone should have one in their wardrobe. A great print such as blue and white stripes is also ideal for this time of year and will elongate your figure.
Embrace a little drama
A bold dramatic maxi skirt is a good option for those times when you want an event look that’s a little different. Pair it with a crisp white shirt for a classic ensemble that still packs a sartorial punch.
