Ah, January, we meet again.
The post-Christmas slump is over (insert sad face), which means that instead of cosying up under a blanket all day, we have to plan for the year ahead, pay the bills and continue adult-ing. And to make things worse, it’s the worst month of the year. But, good ol’ Jan does come with some benefits; one being that it’s the magical time of year where your wardrobe gets refreshed (hallelujah) – after payday, of course.
So, to help kick this season off the right way, our stylists have gathered a few staple pieces that’ll impress you and your bank account. Want to see them? Voila…
Guess Who’s Back?
…Back again. Print is back. Tell a friend. We couldn’t think of starting the season without our trusted companion: animal print. We’re not completely sure exactly when we’ll be parting ways – since let’s face it, it’s been around for quite a while. But since there’s no signs of a mutual break-up and it’s not overstaying its welcome, our stylists have included a look that’s straight from the catwalk.
Style tip: Style this dress with any colour that’ll make those black stripes pop.
Floral, For Real
No nasty surprises with this dress – it’s bright, contemporary and in everyone’s favourite shade of red. Plus, the midi shape deserves an honourable mention in this treturous weather. It’s the time of year when you want to get your legs out but can’t face a day without tights, thus the midi dress offers maximum covering with minimum effort. Thanks, midis.
Style tip: If you’re already thinking of wedding season, then pair this dress with metallic heels and a fancy hat.
Something that’ll help you make getting back to your original-office-self is this bodycon dress. It’s super-soft, spotty and styled in sophisticated shades of black and white. Oh, and it’s already waiting for those after-work drinks.
Style tip: Red accessories, no exception.
Weather Or Not
Nobody likes the cold, least of all your wardrobe. But, while we’re not out of the woods yet when it comes to grabbing your coat every morning, choose this gilet to help you transition. And it’s even got a sleek animal print – we promise there’s not theme here.
Style tip: Wear on-top of your knits and under a coat if it’s really glacial.
The Grey Area
Now, for those of you who are wondering what the colour of the season is. Well, much like the weather… it’s grey. Even though it’s not the most exciting shade (shh, we didn’t say that), this hooded cardigan manages to make your weekend-casual look totally chic. Hello, new weekend get-up.
Style tip: forget about your umbrella, just use this hood.
