Navigating the trends season after season can be tricky. Luckily we have starlets (and their stylists) to show us the way.
Get some inspiration from the ladies who are leading the fashion pack.
She’s the reigning queen of London cool. But this season, we’ll be bringing her style to our streets. Sienna’s perfect weekend wear infuses feminine pastoral pieces with more edgy, military-style coats and boots. Look for embroidered, flowing dresses this spring and try pairing them down with an olive green military anorak and little booties. Sienna’s signature accessory – the scarf – is another must-have for the coming season (pick one with a pop of colour or embellishment).
Who doesn’t love a modern starlet with Old Hollywood style? This red carpet maven recently captivated us at the SAG awards with her one-shouldered, mustard-coloured gown by Jason Wu. Her fashion picks are always effortless and vibrant – and they seem to fit her in all the right places.
Take note and invest in some classic pieces with a touch of feminine glamour. For a night out, choose a flirty frock with silver accessories or a frilly blouse paired with loose shorts.
Now, we know what you might be thinking – the Kermit-the-frog-wearing, pant-less pop star? But bear with us. Her outfits may be quirky and unconventional, but there’s something to be said about her ability to wow us.
The lesson? It’s okay to take some (calculated) fashion risks. You might be apprehensive about trying out a daring new trend, like the lingerie-inspired looks from the runway, but just go for it. This spring, incorporate some lace pieces into your wardrobe or try a semi-sheer blouse with masculine trousers. Keep it tame and you’ll find yourself on the best-dressed list.
One thing this First Lady has taught us: business wear does not have to be blah. Forget boring, monochromatic pantsuits, this budding style icon prefers strong colour, printed frocks and chunky jewels. The key to Mrs. O’s style is confidence – something we’ll all need this season with bold patterns dominating the spring runways.
Take this trend to the office by sporting a floral or tribal patterned dress with a classic shape and a bib necklace. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try mixing and matching patterns in one outfit (it was a big hit on the runways).
