ASOS:HOW ASOSERS DO SPORTS STYLES

Do you know what was better than when sportswear came back in fashion? When we realised it was here to stay… These days, trackies, hoodies and everything in between are now wardrobe staples that we wear 24/7. At ASOS, that means even rocking them at work – which is basically our 90’s childhood dreams come true. Here are some sporty ’fits the crew are wearing now.
You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of adidas trackie bottoms, especially when worn with a so-2019 neon top. Video Creative Nierodha mixes classic sportswear with the hottest trend on the block for a steezy (and comfy-AF) look. This one could even work with heels and a longline coat for a night out.
Mixing a Nike top with tailoring may have been a no-no 10 years ago, but we can’t get enough of a sporty-smart mix these days. The brand’s iconic Swoosh is always a welcome addition to a ‘fit, and it’s even better when there’s a bunch of ‘em having a party on your sweater. Buying Administrator Imi has added a rock‘n’roll edge via a leather pencil skirt and a pair of Cons. Genius.
It was Gucci’s most popular look on social media last summer – and the shiny shell suit is still hanging around for 2019. While it might recall old episodes of Ali G or awkward pics of your mum in the 80s, Junior Stylist Coco shows that it’s a major outfit choice. Especially when it comes in the form of this patchwork Nike beauty, which will be on site very soon.
Is baby pink and khaki the new colour combo we need in our lives? We think so, and it’s all thanks to Assistant Buyer Calypso’s fresh look. The cargo pants and logo trends are a match made in 90s heaven, while some boxfresh Air Force 1s and a cute beanie set the ‘fit off perfectly.

Get the look UK:
Sarah Brown
Nothing adds edge to an outfit like a bit of leather, so why not go head-to-toe like Sarah Brown for the ultimate cool-girl approach to off-duty dressing. Knee-high boots are the perfect style statement to finish off the look.

ASOS:5 OF THE BEST NEW-SEASON DRESSES

Yup, it’s cold out there. But even if you can’t physically escape the chill, you can take a mental break from it by prepping your spring wardrobe. To get you started, we’ve picked five of our favourite dresses ATM, and – spoiler alert – there’s something for every mood.
Two thousand neonteen
ICYMI, 2019 is the year of fluorescent colours. And if you were worried, no, there’s no such thing as too much neon. This off-the-shoulder broderie dress is where futuristic highlighter shades meet the feminine milkmaid trend. Wear it with chunky trainers (yes, still going strong) and mini shades and you’re good to go.
Slip into something comfy
You can’t really go wrong with a slip dress now, can you? And you don’t necessarily have to wait till spring either: just layer it over a long-sleeved tee or sweater for colder weather. This blue satin story is one of those day-to-night heroes, so whether you’re feeling heels or trainers, it’s here for you.
Neutral mode
The new neutrals are all about natural fabrics and earthy tones. Think clay pots, exotic food markets and exposed brick. We’re loving this burnt orange beauty and its cute 70s-inspired cut-out detail. Style it with nude strappy sandals for a sophisticated look, or pull out your kicks for that contrast we all know and love.
It’s all in the deets
Whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist, this season is all about the details. Think of buttons, like the ones on this check dress, as the cherries on top of the cake. From wooden to resin, these accents are here more for the statement factor rather than the functionality – but, luckily, they double as both.
Totally tropical
This one has us dreaming of vacation, but it works for any occasion really – whether it’s a day out in the city or drinks after dark. Tropical floral is a trend you’ll be seeing a lot of very soon, so you might wanna jump on it ASAP. This one’s got everything you need: a sweetheart-neckline, a flamenco-style fishtail hem and a shade that looks great with a tan (real or fake).

ASOS:3 WAYS TO GO RETRO THIS SEASON

Just when you thought it couldn’t get colder, it did. And if you’re all out of layering ideas after what seems like the longest winter ever, fear not: we’ve got a fresh batch of inspo in the form of some seriously nostalgic fits. This season’s retro trends come courtesy of all your favourite decades, from the 70s to the 90s. Just add some on-point accessories, layers and a dash of glam – and you’ve got the answer to all your cold-weather prayers. Want to find out more? Here are three ways to try it now.
The new neutrals
Not sure where to start? How about with a double-breasted pinstripe blazer in a 70s-inspired brown like this one? Layer it over a vintage-vibe polo shirt for a top half that could have come right outta That ’70s Show. Now, to avoid looking like you’ve actually time travelled from your Dad’s fave era, style it with a more modern pair of rigid cropped jeans. Bonus points for matching your shoes to the accent colour of your top.
Still clueless
Remember Clueless and Cher’s forever-on-point checked co-ords? Well, say hello to the 2019 remake. Mismatch a cropped boucle jacket and a checked midi skirt for a print clash that somehow works wonderfully. Then, throw a little bit of 70s into the mix with a sporty half-zip sweater underneath (cos why not?). Don’t forget the accessories: this beaded bag will carry all you need for the day and is the perfect contrast to boxfresh white trainers. Not so clueless anymore!
Three in one
And now for a look that combines three decades in one. Animal print might be one of the biggest trends of the year, but, TBH, it’s also a major throwback moment that was big in the 70s. Plus, if you don’t get serious Fran Fine from The Nanny or Janice from Friends vibes off this, you’ll want to refresh your memory of sitcom glam. Then, a mini dress with a roll-neck layered underneath brings a swingin’ 60s twist. Beautiful.

ZARA:Cool Women of Every Generation Are Wearing Burberry’s Vintage Check Again

There are quite a few fashion predictions one can feel confident about making for this year: Veganism and sustainability will continue to be hot-button topics in the industry, everyone will want to wear anything from Valentino/Marine Serre/Paco Rabanne, influencers will continue to influence, hair clips are going to be the new statement earrings, Millennial Pink is here to stay, and Burberry’s vintage check will be the most identifiable pattern.

I can feel it already. Riccardo Tisci’s first full runway collection will undoubtedly inspire a number of women to revisit the luxury brand’s offering. The first section of the spring 2018 catwalk, with its sophisticated neutral color palette and flattering shapes, sealed that deal. However, it’s not the only part of this storied fashion house he has artfully approached since stepping in as chief creative officer last year.

The former creative director of Givenchy has established both a new logo inspired by founder Thomas Burberry and (time would only tell, right?) and reworked the most recognizable style signature of them all: the brand’s icon plaid.

As seen last month on Kate Moss in a resplendent matching checked shirt-and-trousers co-ord from the brand’s hotly anticipated collaboration between Riccardo Tisci, Vivienne Westwood, and Andreas Kronthaler, this was further confirmation of what I had started to sense.

No other fabric has experienced highs and lows quite like Burberry’s checks. With legacy and a certain appeals-to-all allure comes a great deal of affection, and I’m ready to dive head first into it again. It looks like the Instagram set is, too, with influencers from every age bracket breathing new life into the print.

A handful of young ones may not recall this plaid being big back in the ’90s (remember a particularly iconic campaign that featured Moss in her checked wedding gown?), but many of the “new” ways girls are wearing the check lean toward that era’s streetwear aesthetic.

This iconic beige, white, black, and red plaid has been in existence since the 1960s and has been worn by the royal family and celebrities over the years. Whether you opt for a more regal, sophisticated route or tap into the street style culture, there are countless ensembles worth bookmarking for the future. Keep scrolling to see who’s wearing Burberry’s vintage check now, and then shop some of our favorite pieces.

See how Burberry’s check is being worn…
Style Notes: Entry price-point pieces such as pouch bags and scarves are proving to be particularly popular. They also offer an easy, subtle way into the trend.
Style Notes: Combining iconic ’90s vintage pieces like Burberry checks with Chanel logos feels entirely right for now.
Style Notes: Burberry’s bucket hats have been trending, but this totally rave-y getup is the first time I’ve seen one worn so boldly.
Style Notes: When in doubt about print clashing, just go for the double (triple or quadruple) check.
Style Notes: Some have been known to combine with other (non-Burberry) checks. That’s acceptable too.
Style Notes: All of it, all at once. Yes, please. It works because the check is essentially quite neutral.
Style Notes: Burberry’s checked shirts are being layered and styled in 101 ways. This idea of wearing one as more of a shacket ticks boxes for spring.
Style Notes: What did I tell you already about wearing multiple checked pieces at once?
Style Notes: Not everyone will feel like they can pull off Burberry check leggings and moon boots, but winter can do wild things to a wardrobe.
Style Notes: The big tote bags have been getting a lot of Instagram love lately.
Style Notes: Renata always offers a chic, grown-up way to style of-the-moment items.
Style Notes: Even minimalists have cottoned onto the charms of a little check.
Style Notes: Burberry’s coats are second to none, and this checked overcoat will last a lifetime.
Style Notes: Pick out the colors in your chosen check and wear throughout your outfit.

MISSGUIDED:how to dress when you’ve got a thing to go to

2019 has barely begun but already the invites are flooding in. Being a sleepy girl with a busy life is hard amirite? You’re already stressing about what to wear where, and mentally combing the possible guest lists in your head to see if you can afford to outfit-repeat (the curse of tagged photos says absolutely not). In desperate need of some inspiration? Whatever the event, we’ve got you. Here’s how to nail occasionwear:
The Spring Wedding
Your heart is saying warm weather, flowers in bloom, birds singing as you sip champagne on the terrace in the sunshine. Unfortunately, your head is saying it could genuinely still snow in April. A jumpsuit in pastel shades is the perfect nod to the spring, whilst protecting you from flashing your knickers when the howling gales arrive during the wedding photos. Your outerwear is just as important as your actual outfit during the spring, so throw on a fur coat over your jumpsuit to look like the ultimate It girl, or team with a formal trench to ooze class.
The Summer Wedding
Finally, the sunshine has arrived (we hope) and wedding season is officially here. Every one of your besties is getting married within weeks of each other, and your diary is full. With so many invites and limited dolla, co-ords and separates are a great way to get more mileage out of your wardrobe. Mix and match your skirt or culottes with different tops for each event: Team with a silky cami, lace crop, or a body in a matching colour to give the impression of a dress or jumpsuit. Nobody will ever know it’s not a whole new outfit!
The Races
You and your girls have got tickets to ladies day, and you are out to nab the best-dressed prize. Most racecourses have a dress code, so maybe leave the mini skirt and sequins for your night out afterwards. The races is the perfect event to wear something standout and show-stopping. P.s. We feel like we should advise you to wear sensible shoes to avoid sinking into the grass after a few too many proseccos, but we can’t (how could you finish off the perfect outfit with anything but the perfect heel?).
The Prom
There is no night like prom night, and you are ready to say goodbye to school in style. This is your chance to take your glam girl image up a notch, and go for jaw-dropping elegance. A floor-sweeping maxi is always a safe bet, but it doesn’t have to be boring: Add a little sass with a plunging neckline or backless design. Don’t forget, prom dresses don’t have to be long. Dare to bare your pins, and shake it up a bit with a short prom dress. Something heavily embellished will turn the heads of everybody in the room.
The Family Party
It’s your grandparents’ wedding anniversary or your dad’s hitting the big 5-0. Your huge, extended family is descending on your home, and you’re already dreading Auntie Sandra’s interrogation about what your future plans are. You need an outfit that screams “I’ve 100% got my life together”, and tailoring is perfect for this illusion. Take the look from office attire to party-appropriate by trading your cigarette trousers for tailored shorts, or swapping your black blazer for bright colours or patterns. Make sure you finish off with some barely theres, or some cute mules if flats are more your thang.

ASOS:3 WAYS TO WEAR DENIM FOR 2019

Whatever the weather or occasion, you can always depend on denim. From jeans to jackets, the fabric is on constant rotation in our wardrobes. So, to keep the classic piece fresh this season, we’re looking to vintage cuts, fresh shades and slick add-ons. Keep scrollin’ for our top tips on how to wear it now.
To start, why not swap out your trusty blue jeans for a cream or white pair? A wide-leg, cropped style will be your go-tos this season, trust. They’ll match with basically anything, but an earthy denim jacket is a good option – brown is the shade of the season, after all. To mix up the neutral vibe, a pinch of print is always a win, while resin details are the cherry on top.
Fit: boyfriend. Colour: lilac. Styling: androgynous. This look mixes three of our favourite things. It also begs the question: why wait for spring to wear pastels? Fresh shades like these will bring some (much-needed) fun to your ‘fit now. And banana-shade Chuck Taylors to finish? Sign us up.
Flared jeans are back, and you can thank the return of the 70s trend. Combine them with a simple ribbed knit to channel icons of the era like Farrah Fawcett and Jane Birkin. To update it for now, reach for this season’s version of the bum bag and cute embellished hair clips. You can file this one under work-to-weekend wins.

ASOS:ASOS INSIDERS WEAR ACTIVEWEAR

Let’s face it, New Year’s fitness resolutions are easy enough at the beginning of Jan – but once mid-month rolls around and the novelty wears off, your motivation can decrease. Or just disappear altogether. That’s why we’re bringing you some on-point ‘fits, as worn by ASOS Insiders, that will actually make you want to hit the gym (or the pavements) all the way through ’til summer. We promise.
Getting out of bed and going for a jog outdoors is our favourite thing to do in January. Said no one ever. But we must admit, ASOS Sophia’s look just might get us kinda excited about an early morning run. The long-sleeve top will guard against the cold while the fuschia leggings will brighten up those grey days. Pavements, we’re coming for ya.
Popping to your local basketball court with your mates is the best way to burn some cals while catching up on the goss. And doing it in this 90s-inspired fit is an even better idea. ASOS Lesley stunts in an ellesse sweatshirt and legging shorts, which you can swap out for regular leggings if you can’t stand the chill. Swish.
Bringing a touch of luxe to your repertoire via Calvin Klein is a surefire way to get you working out more. ASOS Olive’s logo sports bra and leggings are perfect for a gym sesh (and some mirror selfies, naturally). In fact, this look is so good you’ll want to wear it to brunch after – just add an oversized puffer jacket.
If you’re serious about your workout in a lift-weights-and-treadmill-sprints kinda way, firstly, more power to ya. Secondly, you’ll probably agree that, when it comes to gym clothes, less is more. Enter this slick legging shorts and sports bra combo, as seen on ASOS Scarlett. A ‘fit like this one will ensure you sweat it out in style.
You’ll have to try to stop us from working out in this look. How good is the so-AW18 tiger print, girly pink colour and matchy-matchy vibe? This one is perfect for your next yoga class as you try to find your inner peace (and serve up serious looks, obvs). Wednesday night Netflix binge? Namaste in the gym.

ASOS:WHY CARGO TROUSERS ARE CARRYING ON FOR SS19

Carried on the back of the ongoing 90s revival, cargo trousers have cemented their return to the fashion mainstream via the SS19 catwalks – and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Easily recognisable thanks to their side pockets, these All Saints-approved all-stars bring a strong mix of military and safari vibes, which, ICYMI, are two of the season’s biggest trends. At first, you may think the somewhat bulky silhouette is tricky to wear, but they work beautifully with neutral shades and tailored cuts. See below for some fresh cargo inspo.
Seen at
Fendi’s SS19 collection was a sporty, adventurous and super-elevated mash-up that saw Gigi Hadid strutting down the catwalk in these beige beauties. Trousers with pockets-a-plenty are traditionally associated with the army, while their neutral tones mean soldiers can fade into the background – but Gigi managed to remain the centre of attention on the Italian label’s catwalk, naturally.
Seen on
Cargo pants bring back memories of late-90s girl bands or rebellious early-00s teenagers (inspired by Avril Lavigne in the Sk8er Boi era, obvs). And ASOS Kicki is serving some nostalgic angsty punk realness in this on-point getup. She pairs her wintery, darker cargos with an oversized Tupac T-shirt and some XXL Buffalos, resulting in a laid-back look we’ll be stealing stat.
Try it on
Wanna go on your own adventure? Even if you’re travelling no further than the end of your road, Weekday’s cargo trousers will help you discover new (stylish) horizons. As you can see, they work beautifully with a crisp white shirt – and as for the socks and sandals, wear them if you dare for extra style kudos. Added bonus: you won’t have to bring your handbag thanks to the very functional (and steezy) pockets. Win.

ASOS:HOW ASOSERS DO GRAPHIC PRINTS

In a wintery sea of muted greys and earthy browns, an artsy print is a strong way to stand out from the crowd and inject a little personality into your look. And this season has plenty to offer in the way of motifs, from subtle logos to full-on statement graphics. By way of illustration, we grabbed five of our ASOSers to show us how they’re wearing their prints now.
Oh-so-extra neon is a huge trend ATM, and adding a little bit of print to an already powerful palette never hurts. Junior Social Copywriter Titi wears a highlighter sweater with a curious motif – both in name and in nature. With a statement top like this, it’s best to keep the rest of the ‘fit muted, so Titi pairs hers with tailored grey trousers and white trainers like a fash pro.
At first glance, this tee looks like a barbed wire motif, but, on closer inspection, you’ll see the word ‘Paris’ entwined in the design. Mind. Blown. The oversized fit of this tee gives it a borrowed-from-the-boys vibe, and Junior Creative Kate wears it with sweat pants and Nike Air Max trainers to create a slick streetwear look. To finish, a neon scrunchie brings some nice contrast.
If your style is on the understated side, but you’re still after a little motif-ation, just add a monogram accessory like Senior Showroom and Events Coordinator Olivia. Asymmetric shapes, like this one, have been big since Dior brought their saddle bag back from the 90s for AW18 and this wonky wonder goes with denim, dresses, suiting… Basically everything.
We predict tie-dye will be big for 2019 thanks to the SS19 catwalks of Prada, Proenza Schouler and loads more – and you can get ahead on the trend now with a tee like Senior Social Creative Jess. The genius addition of the skater graphic calls for laid-back styling via wide-leg trousers, a leather jacket and a beanie hat. To dye for.
Pictures: ASOS
For a simple lesson in how a graphic can transform a look, see Junior Designer Texas’ ensemble. This neon T-shirt and its interesting sculpture motif turns basic jeans, a long-sleeve white top and classic Converse into a super fun ‘fit. The tee is a talking-point piece that’s perfect for a first date with your prints charming (sorry, not sorry), or just a gig with your mates.
