1. Chic Weekends
Weekends are all about indulging in comfort, but that doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style. Embrace a casual elegance on Saturday and Sunday in the form of easy layers, soft tailoring, and thoughtful accessories.
2. Go Beyond The Skinny Jeans
Elevate your denim wardrobe with silhouettes that extend beyond the ubiquitous skinny jean. Tailored wide-legs and flattering flares are sophisticated alternatives that can polish up for Monday-to-Friday dressing or convey a modern ease off-duty.
3. Lighten Up
Let’s face it: black and leather will never go out of style, but why not take a walk on the lighter side for a change? Opt for earthy, neutral tones in sumptuous silks and knits for a luxurious and modern ease, perfectly captured here by The Row.
4. Have More Fun With Accessories
Punctuate your 2016 wardrobe with striking, eye-catching bags and shoes that can single-handedly bring a look from day to night, minimal to bold. Take a cue from Valentino, where texture, prints, and proportion strike an excellent balance between edgy and polished.
5. Be Prepared
Choose high-performance outerwear and you’ll have no excuse for chattering teeth this winter. With an expert execution of fashion-conscious designs combined with advanced technology, brands like Canada Goose are making it impossible to be underdressed when weather hits.
6. Elevate Your Flats
Choosing flats over heels is utterly fresh and doesn’t mean sacrificing glamour. With details like metallic leather, luxe textures, and high-quality finishes—derbys and oxfords from the likes of Manolo Blahnik make a sophisticated option for evening.
7. Less Is More
Take a cue from Helmut Lang‘s approach to modern minimalism by creating an edit of wardrobe staples with clean lines in premium fabrications. Understated dresses, easy jackets, sumptuous knits, and relaxed tailored pieces mix and match to create enduring options.
8. Everyday Earrings
Assorted earrings continue to be spot-on in 2016. Gold hoops, danglers, and studs with subtle details, along with variations in length and shape, look fresh paired together or worn asymmetrically. Wear them even on your most casual days to add a bit of interest.
9. Work Out In Style
Activewear continues to be seamlessly integrated into a busy, fashion-conscious lifestyle, which is why we’re loving brands like Live the Process, Weargrace, and Ultracor that layer easily with rest of your wardrobe.
10. Make An Exit
Capes offer a bold silhouette and look striking when on the move. Choose one in a bold print and let it be the focal point of your look—you’ll make a lasting impression whether coming or going.
