New Year style resolutions
We don’t like to stick to that old cliché ‘new year, new you’ (you’re already fabulous to begin with, trust us), but there is something to be said for that inspiring clean slate the new year offers. Consider it less of a fashion resolution and more of a fashion revolution. Feeling inspired? Take a peek at the just-in pieces that will get your pulse racing this January - no gym required.Shop Womenswear
1. Park it
Whether rugged and outdoorsy or fur-lined and sleek with a cinched in waist, the classic parka is the coveted cold-weather staple you can dress up or down this winter. Nod to the utilitarian roots of this trend and team with lace-up boots.
Superdry, Classic Rookie Fishtail Parka Coat, £99.99
2. WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
There’s no escaping snake print this season. Bags, shirts, trousers, you name it – we want it in this print. But to get in on the trend in a wearable way, opt for an ankle boot to instantly reboot your everyday wardrobe staples.
Hobbs, Laura Boot, £199
3. SPORTY SPICE
Make sportswear work harder this year by sneaking active trends into your work wardrobe. Jogging pants work with knits and heels, and athleisure sweaters can dress down statement flares for a cooler edge.
Hugo Boss, Neika Jersey Top, £109
4. THROW MORE SHADE
Winter sunshine calls for signature shades to be paired with a classic coat and some cosy knitwear. Timeless styles such aviators and wayfarers will see you all through to summer.
Ray-Ban, Folding Wayfarer Sunglasses, £136
5. EMBRACE THE RED LIP
To refresh your beauty regime, step away from the smokey palette and focus on your lips. A touch of rouge is all you need for a chic finish.
Giorgio Armani, Rouge D`Armani Matte Lipstick, £30
6. FOR THE FRILL OF IT
Frills, tassels, bows - say yes to it all. There's no guilty pleasures when it comes to style this year. The SS19 runways were awash with these feminine details. If you're not normally one for fuss, give this trend a nod by donning a few romantic ripples or bow detailing.
Whistles, Animal Devore Frill Top, £129
7. SHAPE SHIFTER
There's no simpler trick for transforming an outfit than adding a fresh new bag to the mix. The Inyati coco bag makes a serious case for the coveted top handle trend and is made from premium vegan leather to boot.
Inyati, Coco Top Handle Crossbody, £75
8. HIPPY IN THE CITY
This year the bohemian vibe comes with a touch of luxe; think flowing dresses and printed silks that scream Mediterranean getaway. For those of us who won't be seeing sun for months, start introducing the neo hippie trend through print dresses you can team with boots and knits until summer.
Michael Kors, Raglan Sleeve Midi Dress, £215
9. TOUGH IT OUT
Lace-up combat boots were the footwear trend of the '90s, popularised by the grunge scene of the decade, and now they're back for another outing. Pair them with a floral dress or mini skirt to give your look some edge - we blame Holly Willoughby's jungle style for our current obsession with these fashion heavyweights.
Carvela, Son Ankle Boots, £189
10. SHIRTING THE ISSUE
Thinking it's about time to switch up your go-to winter uniform of jeans and jumper? Try a shirt dress on for size - they're set to be one of the most-coveted dress styles of spring. Wear now with a fitted turtle neck and slouchy boots and then slip on some statement sandals and grab a crochet bag for your next getaway.
Whistles, Stallion Print Shirt Dress, £139
