ASOS: HOW TO WEAR SNAKE PRINT

You already know about leopard. We’ve talked about tiger. So it wouldn’t be fair to let snake slip through the net, now, would it? We’ll admit, it’s a bit extra, but with a few styling tweaks, it’s sure to add a seriously sleek edge to your AW18 look – think crop tops, button-up shirts and versatile dresses. Feast your eyes on these ‘fits…

First up, the cool colour palette. This button-up <span class=”woR”>shirt</span><span class=”woD”>A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body.</span> is already pretty bold, so you can afford to be a little less punchy with your hues. These dreamy lilac trousers offer a fresh take on AW18 and nails that 70s thing with corduroy, too. Opt for a slightly cropped length so there’s plenty of room to show off a pair of chunky heeled boots – these monochrome beauties speak for themselves.

There’s a lot to love about this look – namely, the cut-out detail at the neck and the exposed midriff giving us ultimate 90s vibes. To push the animal-safari theme one step further, go for camo at the bottom – those greens and beiges look real good together. Feeling chilly? Throw on a blue <span class=”woR”>denim</span><span class=”woD”>Denim[1] is a sturdy cotton warp-faced[2] twill textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the denim that distinguishes it from cotton duck (a linen canvas).</span> number to top it all off.

If bright colours aren’t your thing, this snake-print piece is served up in black and white. Just sling over a cross-body bag (neon trims, we see you) – et voila, your work here is done. Dress it up this season by adding tights, stiletto boots and a staple leather <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span> for when the cold bites. Can we take a moment to appreciate all those hair clips, too?

ASOS: THE NEW WAY TO WEAR SEQUINS

Sequins are big news this AW18, with shimmering looks aplenty that’ll work for every occasion – from after-dark events (hello, party season) to even, wait for it… daytime! With all these oh-so-shiny looks infiltrating the season, a sequin-induced dizzy spell may occur. So, to get your glittering outfits in order, be sure to check out our brand-new way to group your favourite Saved Items together. Available on the ASOS app, channel your inner Monica Geller by organising your outfit inspo into your own personalised Boards. Who ever said organisation can’t be fun? To get you started, here’s our roundup of the best ways to wear sequins now. Sunglasses at the ready…

Party favour
When it comes to party season, there’s nothing a sequin <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> can’t do. The epitome of festive cheer, it’s a guaranteed head-turner and conversation starter, plus it looks great under the strobe lights… need we go on? For an AW18 update, swap your usual clutch for a belt bag (the hands-free benefits are going to come in handy when you’re juggling all those cocktails and canapes).

Day-glow
If you thought a sequin dress was just for the dancefloor, think again. Blogger Caro Daur’s look makes a strong case for bringing the trend into your daytime lineup, too. Pair a high-neck, long-sleeve top with a sparkling maxi for a bold look that has some serious <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.</span> credentials (and is perfect for when the chill sets in). Dial the look up with bold colours and high-octane add-ons for maximum impact.

Trouser power
When you’re looking for a pick-me-up in the cold months, disco ball-inspired trousers have got you covered. Reach for these babies on those not-in-the-mood-for-a-dress nights and pair them with a slinky cami and a longline blazer. Or, if you’re feeling daring at the weekend, throw them on with a denim <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span> and white lace-up boots for a dose of fun.

Throwback time
This street-styler’s look combines two of our favourite trends: glitter and the 90s. We’re loving the Sporty-Spice-meets-Studio-54 vibes. Who knew that a sequin crop top and a tracksuit were a match made in heaven? Add polish with slicked-back hair and minimal makeup, and on top, skinny sunnies win extra style points.

Less is more
For the minimalists out there, the thought of a fully sequinned ensemble may have you waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. But with this look, Dutch blogger Linda Tol proves there’s a pared-back way to tap into the trend. Go for a silver sequinned skirt and layer it under an oversized knit for a more subdued approach. Keep the accessories to a minimum too.

2. Get Cosy with a Striped Sweatshirt

ASOS:HOW ASOSERS DO TIGER STRIPES

They say a tiger can’t change its stripes, but try telling that to an ASOSer. From tops and trousers to skirts and dresses, ASOS staff are wearing tiger stripes on just about everything right now. And if you were wondering how they’re styling them out, then stick around, because we’ve been on a bit of a sartorial safari here at ASOS HQ. Check out our snaps for some inspo.

Spanish Editorial Assistant Celia’s ultra-slick outfit makes pulling off tiger stripes look like it ain’t no thing. Opting for more of a pared-back aesthetic, she wears her printed <span class=”woR”>shirt</span><span class=”woD”>A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body.</span> with cropped black leggings, while the pointed pink heels add a soft pop of colour – simple but effective.

Question: what do you get when you cross one key AW18 trend with another? Answer: Social Media Assistant Morgan’s ah-mazing trousers. Combining 70s flares with animal print is a game-changing hybrid, and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t into it. The snakeskin belt kicks the entire look up another notch, too.

For a lesson on how to zhoosh up classic wardrobe staples, just take a look at this next outfit. PR Assistant Rose’s big-cat-inspired roll-neck makes a stark statement cosied up with her patent biker <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span>, while the baby-blue jeans and boxfresh trainers are always relevant.

Hitting the sartorial sweet spot, PR Assistant Rachele plays the layer game with her printed cami <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>, with aesthetically pleasing results. And by wearing it with a grungy, long-sleeved T-shirt and crisp white kicks, she manages to channel some serious 90s vibes at the same time. We’ll never not love this look.

Your casual Friday ’fit, but make it fashion. In other words, Partnership Manager Stephanie’s hoodie and chunky dad trainers are pretty laid-back pieces when worn on their own, but by pairing them with her tiger-print skirt, she manages to elevate her entire look to next-level status. So good.

ASOS:ALL THE KNITWEAR INSPO YOU NEED RIGHT NOW

Cosying up at home in that lovable (read: old) jumper sounds tempting right now, but AW18 is making a strong case for knits that deserve to be seen. And this time around, it’s all about the styling – whether you go fluffy and cosy or patterned and neon, we’ve got some seriously dreamy looks to inspire your layer game. Knitwear season, it’s good to have you back.

Wild thing
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: animal print is going nowhere. Our favourite right now? The tiger. This roll-neck number paired with pink and brown hues is giving us all the earthy feels – we’re into the fluffy layer draped around the waist for when the chill sets in. Pull on your knee-high winter boots and up top, finish with tortoiseshell cat-eye sunnies for extra animal points.

Neon signs
It’s almost like neon was invented to counteract those miserable, grey days, right? Go for a fluoro-pink layer with a high neck and extra-long sleeves for added cosiness, and tuck it into that midi <span class=”woR”>skirt</span><span class=”woD”>A skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped garment that hangs from the waist or hips and covers all or part of the legs. The hemline of skirts can vary from micro to floor-length and can vary according to cultural conceptions of modesty and aesthetics as well as the wearer’s personal taste, which can be influenced by such factors as fashion and social context. Most skirts are self-standing garments, but some skirt-looking panels may be part of another garment such as leggings, shorts, and swimsuits.</span> you wore all <span class=”woR”>summer</span><span class=”woD”>Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.</span> (checked, obvs). Note: emergency orange and bright green make for equally popping shades, too.

Cool off
Now this is the kind of grey we can get on board with. A pastel colour palette gives a fresh take on autumn/winter, while the fluffiness of the jumper combined with a satin pleated skirt is the stuff of textural dreams. Also, micro handbag plus sleek, pointed heels? We approve.

Flying colours
We are so here for rainbow styles. If the balloon sleeves weren’t bold enough, try wearing with clashing prints – think contrasting striped top peeking out underneath plus streetwear-inspired, baggy camo trousers à la this Paris <span class=”woR”>Fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.</span> Week showgoer. Chunky dad trainers play off against the fluffy, heart-shaped bag for the ultimate accessory clash, too.

For old times’ sake
To move your wardrobe forward this season, take a look back. Yep, retro-inspired jumpers are still high on our agenda. Pretty sequin and faux-pearl embellishment nods towards vintage dressing, especially when tucked into 70s-style trousers. Bold, patterned knits topped off with ditsy clutches are giving us a real throwback vibe, too.

ASOS:HOW TO WEAR DUNGAREES RIGHT NOW

If the word dungaree conjures up images of painter/decorators, then let us jog your memory because there have been many iconic overall moments over the years. Rachel wore hers in all kinds of iterations in 90s-era Friends. Tai wore a cut-off patchwork pair to party in Clueless. And Carrie wore hers with a striped vest and wellies to Aidan’s upstate cabin in Sex and the City. Historically, they’ve been adorable, but for AW18, they’re all grown up. Here’s three ways – from the catwalk, the ‘gram and beyond – to wear yours for the new season.

Go fancy
Sure, the hat ain’t that versatile, but the overalls certainly are. Here’s how to <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> yours right up to the nines, à la John Galliano’s AW18 collection. The styling is easy – it’s essentially just <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture.</span>, boots and a going out-out top. A formula we’ve known and loved since the 00s tbh. The only difference this time round is that the <span class=”woR”>denim</span><span class=”woD”>Denim[1] is a sturdy cotton warp-faced[2] twill textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the denim that distinguishes it from cotton duck (a linen canvas).</span> is a cuffed-hem onesie, not the rain-absorbing flares of yore. Keeps your strides wide-fit and distress free and you’ve got this.

Layer player
If dressy dungarees aren’t the one for you, let ASOS Insider Scarlett be your poster girl for the trend in her red, white and blue getup. Add some autumnal excellence to a simple overall and white tee combo with chunky-sole trainers in 90s brights, and a matching shacket to tie the whole thing together.

Classic hits
So simple, and actually so underrated, we’ve got a lot of time for this sporty iteration of the overalls trend. A clean and crisp white T-shirt and matching trainers will be your number one hun for brunching and leaf-kicking in this weekend. Layer a jumper underneath and a parka over the top when the chills set in.
