"Shop your wardrobe" is a familiar term lately. But every stylish woman knows, as seasons change the first stop is always your own closet. With a little bit of inspiration and some imagination you can recreate many of the styles in the spotlight right now.
Here are five looks for you to find or try from your own selection.
Cardi – When you picture cardigans, you probably imagine a sensible someone who doesn’t go out of their way to stand out from the crowd. Think again oh stylish one. We all need a cardi in our collection and I imagine you have one hidden away that you have a secret affection for. Time to whip it out, throw it through the wash and wear it asap. Try it over a cute T shirt, tie it at the waist or button it up with a collared shirt to really capture the preppy look that’s so hot right now.
Gold Chains – You do not have to be a mad rapper to rock the golden chains, if you have some, then you have the licence to wear them. I would go a little OTT with this look because you can. Layer your chain ladies, only one simply will not do. Chunkier the better. Opt for a few then take a snap, this is pure selfie gold.
Off Shoulder – This is the ideal top arrangement to show your lack of commitment to the cold weather. Now we are not showing the full shrug to take over this trend. Only one shoulder at a time please, choose your favourite, give it a little bronze if you see fit and get it out there. I will definitely be overdoing this look this season.
Oversized Sunglasses – I don’t think oversized sunnies ever go out of fashion; they’re just so glamorous. Small ones come and go, different shapes make an appearance, cats eyes have staying power but beautiful big sunglasses really enhance the romance. Neutral colours suit everything and bold colours, well bold is the new black so I would be testing out all of your old shades sunshine or no. Extra style votes if they’re vintage!
Bold Cuffs – This is one of my favourites! Often when it’s cooler we start covering areas we might normally accessorise. Add some bang with bold cuffs! Stack bangles over your jumper sleeves. Don’t be bland, mix your metallics or clash colours each side to showcase your style skills.
If you found all these pieces in your ‘robe, then you my friend are trendier than any forecast! Jump online to stalk some more looks you love, then dive back into that wardrobe, you’ll be surprised just how in fashion you really are.
