A splash of colourLet’s kick it off with colour; it’s in! Add colour to your wardrobe with brights and florals. Prints with multiple shades and hues are the look for 2015. If you thought that flower power was left behind, think again. Big or small, flowers are a keeper and give off that feminine look no matter what you match them with.
Pretty patternsThis season, it’s all about patterns and prints. With gingham, the gridlock pattern, appearing in every outfit whether formal or casual, you are sure to have plenty of room to get creative with your outfits. Speaking of formal, the trouser suit is making a huge comeback, allowing for power dressing with a feminine touch. The cropped trouser is a must-have, and can be dressed up or down using whimsical accents such as twine and cowbell belts. Another new trend is that of fringe. It’s the stringy detail on tees, skirts and dresses, and complements your movement when you’re wearing it. Also make sure that you keep some African print outfits in your wardrobe this year because they work for any occasion. Palm-prints are also amongst the picks of the New Year, so look out for classic tropical prints on pants, dresses and skirts.
Fabulous fabricsSometimes being fashion forward is about sticking with the basics. Denim never gets old, and in 2015, it will feature from head to toe, often seen in jackets, jeans, dresses and accessories. New trends include softer materials that feel lighter. You can get this effect from lacy babydoll dresses, printed chiffon and long flowing vests. And for your night out, opt for romantic satin that gives you a curvilinear silhouette. Suede has also made a comeback, so embrace it on skirts, heels and jackets. If you’re getting hitched this year, lace has been picked out for wedding dresses and there are amazing designs coming out of Chloè and Louis Vuitton.
