When consistently faced with new trends it’s easy to get caught up in the trend and dress in that style from head to toe. To avoid becoming a slave to current trends it’s important to identify the elements of a trend that work for you and give it your own individual touch. I am loving the military and 70s trend at the moment so decided to work them together for what is one of my new fave looks for the season. I worked with the khaki colour palette of the military trend with this dress by Karen Millen and added a suede fringed jacket (also from Karen Millen) as a nod to the 70s trend. I’m a big fan of versatility in any item in my wardrobe so I love the fact that the dress is office-appropriate while also being able to be dressed down for casual weekend wear and the fringed jacket can work with everything from a dress to a tee and crisp white jeans.

You can also spot multiple trends emerging from Fashion Week but this year I particularly liked the 70s trend. The Bec and Bridge show was very 70s inspired, and most of the shows I saw had a 70s element to it, whether it was referencing it through silhouettes such as flared pants or sleeves or prints.
Last Fashion Week I felt it was all about pieces being very structured and tailored whereas this season it was all about relaxed silhouettes. It was all just a bit looser and a bit more billowy as as we saw at Ellery or flowing and ethereal such as what was in the Bec and Bridge show. The silhouettes were different but it was still beautifully tailored and crafted. It was an interesting take on the relaxed boyfriend style.
And it seems we’re still all about prints. There were lots of geometric prints and lots of 70s inspired patterns. I’m very much looking forward to spring/summer!

The weather is getting cooler which means winter is just around the corner. I love summer fashion, however there is something distinctly more chic about winter – it must be the cozy layers and luxe fabrics. If you’re already planning your winter wardrobe, be sure to keep an eye out for some of these staple pieces and work them back with some of the key trends of the season. While we’re going to see numerous trends this season, this winter I’m all about the following trends…
Victoria Beckham sent an all white outfit comprising of a cosy knit and skirt down the runway that I immediately fell in love with. There’s just something about white on white that’s fresh and modern. I was all about white on white throughout summer so I’m glad I can carry it through to the cooler months.
A touch of 70s
While I wouldn’t do head to toe of one particular trend I do love some of the 70s inspired pieces that were seen at the international shows. Dion Lee and Zimmermann both incorporated flares into their collection which I thought looked great. I also really liked the lovely felt hats Zimmermann sent down the runway.
Bright pops of colour
It‘s a given that black is a staple of any winter wardrobe which is why I really love unexpected pops of colour during the cooler months. There’s just something fresh and modern about it. I think a great statement coat in a bright colour is a great piece to have. I fell in love with this particular coat by Tome!

Now that summer’s officially here it’s time to embrace all the amazing trends of the season. It’s hard to pick a fave with so many great summer trends around but these would be my top three:
I love that everything’s crisp white this season and I’m especially loving that white on white look. It’s really fresh for summer plus it suits all occasions from weekends to nights out. I think it’s a really beautiful look.

I have a soft spot for pastels. I think gelato and sorbet colours are really complementary on so many different people and skin types and I think that it’s a very pretty look for summer.
I love that sporte luxe look. I’m all about laser cuts, and neoprene. It’s a bit edgy and a bit sporty for summer. It’s a nice contrast to the more feminine look of the pastels and all white trend.
