H&M: 3 WAYS TO WEAR THIS SEASON’S IT-PRINT

UNDERCOVER SNAKE
Wearing snake print co-ords balances between being super stylish and – perhaps – a little bit over the top. The solution to your snake print sartorial angst? Layer the set under a beige trench coat to downplay the risk of causing a print overload. For final touches, roll up the trench’s sleeves to show some extra scales.
IN THE DETAILS
Intrigued by the trending print but not ready to fully commit to it? Wear it in your accessories! Be a little bold and double up on snake print bags (we attached a small pouch bag to a bigger crossbody) and wear an all-white look to serve discreet yet impactful reptile style.
ALL SNAKE EVERYTHING
If “more is more” is your fashion motto, this is the look for you. Layering a snake print T-shirt, jumpsuit and trench coat creates a brave evening look (and what the cool girl would choose to wear to the office). Remember to keep an eye out for actual snakes.

ASOS: HOW TO WEAR SAFARI SHADES NOW

Safari uniforms traditionally come in neutral tones so adventurers can fade into the background of whatever terrain they’re exploring. However, this season, a neutral fit will, in fact, help you stand out – especially when it comes in the form of ASOS DESIGN’s covetable new collection. The new season by the exclusive-to-ASOS label is fit to burst with desert beiges, earthy browns, jungle khakis and loads more. Below, we bring you three ways to wear them now.Now, here’s a look that Indiana Jones would be proud of. And whether you’re braving the wilderness or your first library day pre-exams – which is probs scarier – this getup is an on-point choice. Top tip: keep neutrals interesting with voluminous silhouettes (see these paper-bag trousers) and unexpected details, like this polo shirt’s woody buttons. Summer is a ways off but the ‘what to wear to work when it’s roasting?’ question is answered already via this dark chocolate blazer and shorts set. Plus, with a bum bag leaving you hands-free (and your look even more steezy), you can navigate the urban jungle – and deal with the wild animals you encounter on your commute – more easily.At first glance, this dress may seem like a simple design, but it has some super-cute details that make it that extra bit special. Like the twist-open back, bell sleeves and plunge neckline (which is begging for a statement necklace). Dunno about you but this beauty and its snakey sandal friends have got us dreaming of balmy vacation nights. BRB, off to book that Ibiza trip…

ASOS:5 OF THE BEST HERO ACCESSORIES FOR MARCH ’19

Have you ever magically transformed an outfit from zero to hero with the right accessory? If so, you’ll be with us when we say the power of the perfect add-on knows no bounds. This season we’ve got our eye on two trends in particular: acrylics and resin. The first is as futuristic as it gets, the second is a throwback to the 70s (with a modern spin, natch.) Here are five of the best finishing touches that tap into those vibes now.
Not your average plastic bag
Is there anything not to love about this tote bag? We’re obsessed with its chunky chain, the on-trend brown tone, the handy size, its sheer material… nuff said. Just make sure you don’t put anything too embarrassing in there (maybe leave your copy of 50 Shades at home…).
Let it slide
From weekend to vacation, these embellished sandals will be your go-tos when the warm weather hits. Plus, if you’re heading to a wedding in summer you can slip these into your bag for when your heels start to pinch for peak dancefloor domination.
Jumping through hoops
Retro is all around us this season, and resin earrings bring just that right amount of throwback to your look. We’re seeing these ones with a so-2019 earthy top and some wide-leg jeans, or a maxi dress and some wedges.
Hair’s looking at you
Big blingy hair accessories may be all over the sidewalks at fashion month, but for something more subtle, try these little ones. How to wear them? Clip one on at either side, secure one at the back, fasten one to your ponytail, buy 10 and wear them all over – get creative with it!
One thing is clear
We love it when fashion and practicality get together and that’s just what happened in the case of this belt. Adjustable to be worn on the hips or waist, it’s the perfect partner to acid-wash jeans or an oversized blazer. We can see it so clearly…

ASOS:FRESH ‘FITS FROM PARIS FASHION WEEK AW19

After four cities and hundreds of shows, fashion month has sadly come to an end. Paris was our final stop, and as usual the City of Light didn’t disappoint. From Saint Laurent’s glow-in-the-dark wonderland to Karl Lagerfeld’s swansong for Chanel, this season was definitely one to remember. There was plenty of street style inspo on the go too, and we’ve sifted through the lot to bring you six of the freshest ‘fits to inspire your new-season line-up. Just keep scrolling…
Easter is on its way and this street styler looks like a super-stylish chick in this getup. Going down the pastel palette route, she sports a banana-shade co-ord, creating a tonal dream by pairing it with yellow sunglasses and bag. For the pièce de résistance, those heels add an unexpected flourish via a flash of red. Cracking.
What happens when you take two of SS19’s hottest trends (snake and neon), put them on a longline tailored coat, and mix it with a minimal look? A lesson in how to cheer up a grey Parisian day (and elevate a low-key look). Another tip we’ll be taking from this ‘fit? Add a statement scarf to your black bag for your SS19 accessories update. Genius.
Tie-dye is on our radar for SS19 and here Danish blogger Pernille Teisbaek shows us how to do it in a super-fresh way. The top half is Woodstock meets surfer girl, while the bottom half brings us some Oliver Twist androgynous vibes. 100% into it.
After a sea of beiges and neutrals over the other fashion weeks, it was nice to see showgoers work some colour back into the mix for Paris. The hottest shade this time around? Red. From dresses to full tonal getups like Brittany Xavier’s look above, scarlet ensembles took over the sidewalks – and we’re not mad at all.
If the PFW streets are anything to go by, over-the-knee boots are officially back. LA Blogger Aleali May pairs her leather beauties with an oversized Mugler blazer with exposed stitching. To finish, skinny sunnies, a red lip and super-sleek hair make it a sharp AF affair.
Edgy leather coats, trousers and dresses were also aplenty in Paris. To toughen up her button-up leather number even more, French blogger Camille Charriere has gone for some chunky lace-up boots and slick sunglasses. The result? A winning look you can wear all weekend, from the shops to the pub (once some warmer weather hits).

H&M:LIVING LA DOLCE VITA WITH LINDA TOL

“I love the quality of life in Milan. People enjoy their lives here and it’s not hard to understand why. It’s beautiful and easy to get around, or to leave the city to go skiing in the Alps, go to the coast or to the lakes.”

The Amsterdam-born and Milan-based digital talent Linda Tol has an Instagram following the size of a small country and a front row seat to the most coveted fashion shows in the world. When she’s not busy being Victoria Beckham’s latest muse, traveling the globe or consulting for brands, she works on launching a label of her own with boyfriend and business partner Renwe Jules.

Though reserved about revealing details of their next big project, we expect it will mirror her own pared-back style, more often than not in shades of beige, brown, gray and indigo blue.

“Jeans and blazers are my signature thing, and what I always end up investing in. I also love neutral colors and oversized silhouettes,” she says about her style.

We meet at her favorite restaurant – Da Giacomo – in Porto Monforte, where she’s munching on spaghetti al pomodoro e basilico and updating us on the dos and don’ts in her adopted hometown.
FOR DINNER…
DA GIACOMO
“It’s such a classic! Their pasta is simple but perfectly done and the service is great. You don’t need anything else.”

FOR A COFFEE BREAK…
ÉGALITÉ
“Égalité and its owner Thierry Loy want to take the French boulangerie culture to Milan, and I love the space. I go here for coffee with friends and aperitivo at the end of the day. The bread — baked in traditional French ways — is amazing.”

FOR INSPIRATION…
PINACOTECA DI BRERA
“This classical art museum is located in a beautiful open space and is a place I loved to visit when I first moved to Milan. The courtyard is a great location for taking photos for your Instagram [laughs].”

FOR A NIGHT OUT…
PACIFICO
“I don’t party much and really appreciate being in my house, but when I do go out I love Pacifico. The interior is very chic and luxurious, and the vibe is great.”

FOR A PICNIC…
GIARDINI PUBBLICI INDRO MONTANELLI
“This park is smaller and not as popular as Parco Sempione — and my favorite summer hangout spot. Since I’m Dutch, I love to bring take-away food and sit in parks with my friends. It’s not really a part of Italian culture but we’ll do it anyway.”
SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT NO ONE WOULD EVER EXPECT?
“I’m really good at horseback riding! It’s the ultimate way to relax for me.”

MOST PRIZED POSSESSION?
“My first Chanel bag. I bought it right after I turned 18.”

THE FIRST JOB YOU EVER HAD?
“I packed sweetie bags for a friend’s father’s candy shop. And ate a lot of it.”

THREE THINGS YOU LOVE?
“Supermarkets, horses, chocolate.”

WHEN DO YOU GET NERVOUS?
“I see myself as a very organized person, so when I feel that I’m not in control I get nervous.”

MOST PLAYED SONG ON SPOTIFY?
“Better by Khalid.”

SOMETHING EVERYONE SHOULD TRY?
“Horseback riding on a beach.”

BEST GIFT YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
“A vintage Rolex I got from my boyfriend for my 30th birthday.”

BEST GIFT YOU’VE EVER GIVEN?
“A vintage Rolex! I gave one to my boyfriend for his 30th too. It was an exchange!”

WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE AS YOUR LAST MEAL ON EARTH?
“I’m gluten and lactose intolerant, so I would go for a big cheeseburger with French fries.”

The items that keep Linda Tol up to speed? “My notebook, my sunglasses, my perfume, my keys, my lipstick.” While the loves of her life – her boyfriend, family and animals – are most important, our Everyday Icon has a list of necessities that she never leaves home without. “I love to add a touch of color to my lips, and I need my notebook to pen in all my appointments, ideas and inspiration,” she says while emptying her snake-print bucket bag.
Linda Tol’s style is androgynous with a feminine twist, and you’re most likely to see her strut down the Milan streets wearing a blazer and one of her 40 pairs of jeans. When she’s not sporting her signature get-up, she prefers neutral colors – beige, gray, black and brown – matched with color-popping details and accessories.

When taking a break from blazers and jeans, her perfect everyday look is a workwear-inspired sand-colored jumpsuit that she pairs with a snake-skin bag and sculptural earrings.

WHAT ARE YOUR BEST JUMPSUIT STYLING TIPS?
“Layering! You can play with it in so many ways — just use your imagination. Wear it with a T-shirt underneath and a blazer on top for a more sophisticated look, or with a few buttons open and heels for a night out, or with sneakers and eye-catching accessories for a casual day outfit.”

ZARA:13 Cult Pieces the Street Style Set Are Wearing at Fashion Week

Fashion month always has one dangerous side effect: It makes us want to shop. We’re not just talking about the clothes on the runway, as the street style set is usually the group that determines whether items will become cult pieces or not. We are now on the third week of the monthlong schedule, having already checked off Copenhagen, New York, and London, and there are a number of items that have already emerged as hero buys for the new season.
So far, Saks Potts has come out on top, with its statement-collar coat cropping up on every continent, while Chloé’s new C Bag is slowly but surely gathering a sizable fan club. Other highlights include Boyy’s buckled bags, statement pink jackets, and high-street trench coats—so much to get inspired by. Keep scrolling through the gallery below for this season’s ultimate street style shopping list.
Jeanette Madsen is making us want to buy this jolly scarf-and-sweater set from Alexa Chung’s namesake label, and the good news is that these are both now on sale.
Moda Operandi’s Lisa Aiken has one of the best eyes in the business and a strong track record of spotting new talent. The handbag she is backing this season is this rectangular leather top-handle bag.
If its exposure on the streets of fashion week is anything to go by, Saks Potts’s fur-collar coat is set to be the style of the season.
This bag brand has been on the cusp of fame for a while now, but it seems as though the fashion crowd has finally caught onto the Boyy bag’s brilliance.
Three of this season’s biggest trends (pink, cord, and the ’70s blazer) converge in this stylish Acne Studios number.
It’s big and fluffy, and it ain’t afraid to say so. Emma Brewin’s fur bucket hat has surely got to be one this season’s most playful street style trends.
Considering its long history of cult handbags, it comes as no surprise that Chloé is on its way to winning 2019’s It bag accolade. Coming in a range of fabrics and colorways, the C Bag is classic in shape yet still feels incredibly fresh.
They started off strong last year, but with the unexpectedly warm weather across Europe this February, we can see there’s still plenty of mileage to come from The Row’s super-expensive strappy sandals.
We fell head over heels for Topshop’s trench the first time we saw it. Patent and in a retro shade of orange, this is all we want to be wearing this spring.
The Scandi girls at Copenhagen Fashion Week could not get enough of Vagabond’s affordable yet on-trend shoes. The brand’s Lisse Pump is at the top of our wish list.
Whether styled up for a cold day à la Tamu McPherson (pictured here) or worn in the most summery concoction, this bold tiger-print skirt from Rixo is causing a fuss in stylish circles. Everyone wants to get their mitts on it.
There are many items from Rejina Pyo that the fashion crowd chose to stockpile, but right now we’ve been spotting (excuse the pun) this little knotted handle bag during every round of street style pics. It comes in multiple different finishes and colors, with this polka-dot version looking like its sold out everywhere—sorry.

TOPSHOP:How To Wear Pink Inspired By The Oscars 2019 Red Carpet

Just as we predicted colour dominated on this year’s carpet at the 91st Academy Awards. There was Constance Wu in soft yellow, Charlize Theron in powdery blue and Rachel Weisz in bright coral red – but pink certainly stood out as the clear winner. We break down the trend and show you how to add a touch of award season glamour to your everyday life…

  1. Pink pleats please
    Hellen Mirren wowed in a pink pleated dress that had her twirling all night. Twirl along in our neon midi and an off-shoulder knit.
  2. Cowl it back
    If you loved Kiki Layne’s dusty pink cowl back dress we have some good news: you can find a very similar, if slightly more casual version at Topshop right now…
  3. Double brightness
    Get inspired by Sarah Paulson’s fluorescent two-piece gown and invest in a bold magenta suit that will always make you stand out.
  4. Strong shoulder forward
    Country singer Kacey Musgraves is winning at everything right now. Take cues from her show-stopping tulle dress and pair this pink shoulder-detail pinafore with metallic silver accessories.
  5. Three’s a charm
    Go pink all the way inspired by Angela Bassett and match your outfit to your jewellery and lipstick.

ASOS:THE SAFARI JUMPSUIT WE’RE WILD ABOUT

Desert tones, utility details, natural add-ons: the safari trend is having a moment RN. The adventurer vibe was seen all over the SS19 runways, from Fendi to Loewe, plus it’s been one of the most popular styling moves on the sidewalks of the various fashion weeks (and in our wardrobes, naturally). Say safari, and a beige jumpsuit is the first thing that comes to mind – and this season it’s been updated into some seriously stylish looks.
Seen at
Founded by Nicky and Simone Zimmermann, Australia-born brand Zimmermann (which moved to New York in 2011) is generally known for its boho dresses and swimsuits. However, as this look shows, it knows how to do safari just as well. With oversized pockets, resin details and a brown hue, this has all the trademarks of a classic explorer uniform, but the contrast stitching and waisted belt give it a cool modern edge. Safari, so good…
Seen on
Here, blogger Leonie Hanne demonstrates how to do safari in the cold urban jungle. Her jumpsuit mixes the aesthetic with a boilersuit look your mechanic would be proud of (see the round neck and exposed zips). Just to make sure you feel all the safari feels, Leonie has added some snake-print boots and a belt to really bring out her wild side, and added a padded brown coat to educate us on how to rock the trend when you’re not in an actual desert.
Try it on
The frills on this number are a cute feminine take on the trend. You can style it with trainers and a bucket hat – as we’ve done here – for a slick weekend getup, or add animal print boots, a textured bum bag and a wide-brimmed safari hat for that all-out ‘I’m ’bout to get in a truck and go mix with wild animals in the Sahara’ kind of moment.

ASOS:HOW ASOSERS DO DENIM

Denim, the gift that keeps on giving. Just when we thought it peaked in trends, we realise there’s so much more to explore. And if there’s one thing we like to do at ASOS, it’s exploring fashiony things. So, this is how the team’s been rocking their denim lately.
Hello spring? Is that you? Cos we’re very ready for pastels, especially in denim. Our Buyers Administrator Jess proves that jumpsuits are basically the cheat sheet for getting that extra five mins in bed: one item of clothing and you’re done. Pair it with classic Nike AF1s for an easy-peasy, running-around-the-office look.
Topstitching has been a long-time favourite amongst denim enthusiasts, and, fear not, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Project Manager Kat adds a bit of French flair by pairing these flares (pun very much intended) with a striped long-sleeved top and Converse sneakers. Ultimate office ‘fit? We think so.
ICYMI, utility + denim = a perfect match. Utility trousers like these are cool AF, practical and comfy – the all-powerful trifecta. Just ask Buyers Administrator Intern Isobel who knows what’s up, styling them with a half-zip and white trainers (ankles on show cause it’s finally above 10 degrees).
How to win at denim? Rock two of the season’s biggest trends: double denim and animal print. The belted jacket is 2019’s answer to the denim trucker, just wear it fully closed like Junior Project Manager Lottie for a tailored vibe. Or, you know, layer it cos, boy, do we love layering.
