It’s all about mastering the art of subtle styling tricks and knowing when to wear the right clothing. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by different trends in the fashion industry.

August is a funny time for our closets. It’s still summer (technically) but it can start to feel like the early days of autumn. August is the definition of a ‘transitional’ month, meaning you’ll find yourself pulling from both the summer and autumn sections of your closet to create fashion looks. By this stage in the summer, we’re all tired of repeating the same six outfits every week. August is your last chance to get the most out of your summer closet, while letting you have the first chance to start experimenting with autumn essentials.
Wedding dress season is in full swing. After a year of cancelled and postponed weddings, along with a lot of elopments, we’re all ready to get back to being wedding guests. By now, your inbox is probably flooding with invitations to the wedding of high school friends, university classmates, and work colleagues. A wedding is the most important social event in your calendar, and you want to make sure you’re dressed to impress.
Summer is right around the corner. If there’s one thing that we’ve learnt, it’s that heatwaves come at the least expected moment. It’ll be raining one moment, and the next you’ve got record breaking temperatures. This summer, we’re committed to being prepared for whatever heatwave comes our way. While we love a chance to sit outside with a cocktail and sunbath (with SPF on!), it can make getting dressed a little tricky. No one wants to wear layers upon layers of clothes during a heatwave but finding weather-appropriate clothing can be difficult.
After a hot pink shirt stepped onto the runway at the Valentino spring/summer 2021 show, everyone has been talking about breezy shirts. What makes this garment so special is how it encapsulates the concept of effortless chic. It’s the only item you need in your close this summer. In fact, you’ll want to buy a back-up in case of emergencies. What we love about the breezy shirt is its oversized fit, especially when you style it partly unbuttoned. If you’re looking to refresh your closet for summer 2021, all you need is a breezy shirt.
Summer is right around the corner. Once the temperatures start to rise, we put our jeans firmly to the back of our closet and rediscover our love for dresses. During summer, there’s nothing else that we can wear other than dresses. Whether you’re working on your summer tan or want to stay cool, then a dress is your BFF for the summer season.
Bohemian chic (known as ‘boho chic’) is a trend that is back in vogue thanks to the resurgence of the 70s trends. If you’re a free-spirited person who loves to wear their heart of their sleeve, then this aesthetic will be right up your street. The aesthetic goes hand-in-hand with the hippie movement of the 1970s. It’s characterised by natural fabrics, neutral colour palettes, and statement accessories.
The countdown is officially on for summer. After a year of living through a pandemic, we all deserve to jet off to the sun (post-vaccines!) and run around in a swimsuit. It’s the summer staple that every woman has in their closet. Whether you’re a fan of a one-piece, or if you prefer a bikini, you want to treat yourself to a new swimsuit. Generally, swimsuit trends don’t change too much – making them the perfect investment for anyone, whether you go swimming once a week at your local gym, or if you save it for when you’re travelling.
2020 was the year that street style went digital. Instead of fashion photographers being able to snap photos of fashionistas on their way to Fashion Week, Instagram and TikTok took centre stage. While this means that street style – in its purest form – was put on hold – it doesn’t mean we weren’t treated to a few trends during the pandemic. With the world starting to open back up again, you can expect to see a return to street style on your social media feeds. We’re waiting to see if the pandemic trends will carry through, or if people will turn to more glamorous pieces.
Leather is like fine wine – it gets better with age. If you’re thinking of buying a leather jacket, you might be better of picking up one pre-loved. Not only will you save a few pennies, you’ll often get a nicer looking jacket out of it. If you’re planning on giving your closet an overhaul post-pandemic, a vintage leather jacket should be top of your list. Whatever your aesthetic is, you can incorporate this fashion staple into your closet. Before you head out and search for your perfect vintage leather jacket, we have a few styling tips that can help inspire your search. We’re also giving you some practical advice on how to find the perfect vintage jacket for you.
In 2021, let’s make the commitment to wave goodbye to fast fashion. Over the last few years, we’ve all been making changes to our daily lives to help protect the planet and the world around us. One industry that is finally waking up to the role it’s playing with regards to climate change is the fashion industry. It’s an industry built on momentary trends and the need to consume more products at an ever-growing rate. It’s not just the rate of our consumerism that is the issue, it’s how we make our clothing. Whether it’s the droughts caused by cotton harvesting or the chemicals dumped into water systems in developing countries, the danger of fast fashion is everywhere you look.
