Ready for a fresh start? We are too! Shake that 2020 vibe off you starting with a style update.
We’ve got the style shake-up list for you – the in/out guide of key clothing pieces to add, keep or ditch. Follow the list, hit refresh on your style and #moveover2020!
IN: Sleeve drama
Get into the romanticism of spring where flowers bloom and sleeves… puff! From blouses to dresses, there’s a compelling case for a dramatic puffy sleeve as they will elevate your outfit into a fresh new year vibe. Watch for impetrations of the puffy sleeve at Decjuba, Forever New and Seed over the spring season. DITCH : Say bye bye to basic shirts and boring silhouettes in favour of something more voluminous.
IN: Fast-Forward to spring
Shelve the knits and jump ahead to a new season wardrobe with a jumpsuit or dress that can layer and take you from cooler weather, through to warmer days. Head to Sportsgirl or Dotti for their latest dress and jumpsuit collection.
IN: Hello bucket hats
The 90s trend we didn’t see coming. Bucket hats have made a return! No longer wedged at the bottom of your school bag, this head topper has gone from ‘sun smart’ status to ‘style must-have’. Opt for a chic print for outfit perfection. Haven’t got a bucket hat in storage? Head to Universal Store, Cotton On or Kmart to add your bucket hat.
OUT: Pencil skirts | IN: Pleats
DITCH: We're all about comfort these days and a tight pencil silhouette just won't cut it. Nobody needs a tight, form fitting skirt that cuts your legs in half, it's sure to make you look shorter than you are.
Yes, yes and yes! They’ve been in the limelight for some time now and pleated skirts are here to stay – in long and short form. Great for casual day wear paired with sneakers and a cute knit or dressed up with a strappy heel and a blouse. Keep adding variations of this piece to your spring/summer style. Add to your pleat collection with a visit to Portmans.
IN: Hang onto your teddy coat for cool spring nights
If you got on the Teddy Coat wagon this winter, don’t ditch it just yet – let it take you out on a spring night and warm you up as the sun goes down.
OUT: Bomber jacket goes into hiding
Bomber jackets and berets, the first has been a staple, the latter seems flighty as the wind. Either way, as we move into new season, here’s the advice: simply store of re-home, these pieces are…yesterday!
IN: Stride wide with pride
They’re a keeper! Not going anywhere, wide leg pants are here to stay. Flattering, lengthening, in shades of denim, or lighter fabrics as we head into spring, hang on to them or add to your collection. Find your pair from David Jones.
IN: These boots were made for keeping!
Let your boots walk you into spring – pair with short or mid-length dresses and skirts to give you extra warmth while adding a care-free but street-smart vibe to a feminine floral dress. Keep your current boots or find a fresh pair at Wittner, Betts or NOVO.
OUT: Activewear always
We’re not saying it’s out but after so much track gear wear this year, it’s time to freshen up! Keep your active gear for your active sesh and channel a different vibe for your social life - go for casual, relaxed spring outfits with a touch of femininity.
