It’s all about adaptability and you can wear it whichever way you fancy – crossed at the front, back or tied at the side. We’re seeing this one with the season’s natural accessories and bright lips for that little bit of colour. We can’t decide what we love more about ASOS DESIGN’s super-smart chocolate-brown blazer.

We’re not sure, but we’ll be wearing it with matching tailored shorts and a cami top underneath.If you thought you’d put sequins away until next December, you may well think again once you see this wrap star (lol).

Go all out and pair with neon accessories – glow sticks also encouraged.
When you think about the trends that come out of fashion month, it’s easy to let your mind go straight to the runways—and it makes sense. Historically, much of the focus has been on the catwalk. In the last several years, however, the focus has shifted (in part) to another aspect of fashion weeks in Copenhagen, New York, London, Milan, Paris, and more.Street style, which provides more immediately actionable inspiration, has continued to increase its market share of our attention, and it’s only natural. While the runways predict trends that will only become relevant in several months’ time, street style stars are wearing pieces that are predominately available in the moment and show us seasonally relevant styling tricks and trends that you can re-create immediately. That’s why I know that the colors below, which were all over street style this past fashion month, are likely going to be everywhere any minute now, more so than they are already. Just keep scrolling to see the proof, and shop each one.Probably not the technical term, but you know what I mean.

A bold tone that can either add to your look in the form of just one piece or make your look by way of a monochrome ensemble. Whichever way you go, you won’t regret it.Arguably the scariest, but also my favorite—I think—muppet green was everywhere this fashion month, making it impossible to ignore. And, contrary to what you would think, you’re about to see how easy to style it is. Just add neutrals (think beige, black, and white) and more green. Not to be confused with mustard yellow—yellow mustard is the shade that works anytime, anyplace, and in any season. Whether you opt for a streetwear-inspired look or something sleek such as a trench coat and trousers, it’s a color for being seen in, and definitely worth an investment this spring.

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.
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).
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…
- 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.
- 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…
- 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.

There’s been a lot of major runway moments this New York Fashion Week, from Tomo Koizumi’s fantastical organza dresses to Eckhaus Latta’s beaded-knitwear melange (which were accompanied by UGG mules, obvs). Plus, the NYC sidewalks have been serving some seriously good moments. We’re talking everything from bold suiting to slick accessories – so, without further ado, here are six looks that caught our attention over the last few days.
Still a showgoer favourite, tailoring continues to be big this season. There were plenty of classic tweeds and pared-back whites, but Harper’s Bazaar Editor Chrissy Rutherford and her scarlet ensemble stood out against the grey New York backdrop. Patent boots, skinny sunglasses and a sleek up-do provide the edgy finishing touches.
Blogger Evangelie Smyrniotaki puts a cool spin on the utility trend with this look. She takes an oversized, boxy Alexander Wang shirt, buttons it up to the top and cinches in the waist with a belt before pairing it with laid-back sweat pants. Point-toe booties give it a grown-up touch, while those visors add a slick futuristic feel. So good.
The Chanel show isn’t until Paris Fashion Week in March, but we don’t have to wait till then for some Parisian chic ‘fits. This street-styler’s tweed suit and white turtleneck channels that sophisticated French vibe. As if it wasn’t cute enough, she adds a beret for that touch of je ne sais quoi.
OK, so the bum bag/cross-body sitch is getting a sleeker update for AW19. Sporty styles are still a go, but, for a more polished moment, a leather-look option is just the ticket. Prepare to see Caro Daur’s Fendi version and its detachable belt a lot over the next few weeks in the fashion cities’ street-style.
Toned-down brown shades took centre stage this season, with a range of styles coming in earthy tones. This street-styler went for a so-2019 satin terracotta dress and layered it over a turtleneck (note: this is how to wear your fancier frock now). As if two browns weren’t enough, she added mahogany slouch boots. Just beautiful.
You can’t beat a ‘low fuss but still on-point’ look, and this boilersuit is just that. It would appear the all-in-one isn’t going anywhere soon and we’re pretty happy about it. This model pairs hers with chunky Dr. Martens and a puffer jacket. Your new comfy-but-cool weekend outfit is sorted.
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.
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.
Ski style is quite the trip. Not long after quick-drying, easily customisable nylon was introduced in the 60s, bold hues and wild patterns followed. By the 80s, it was the norm to represent in eye-popping ‘fits and ski style secured its reputation as a playground of experimentation. So, if you’re planning a leisurely ski sesh in Val d’Isère, or a stint on the black run in Hintertux, here are two bold looks from ASOS 4505 and The North Face, tested by boardsports lifestyle influencer Chiara Lovato. There’s more from her later, too.
For true throwback vibes, like living in your own 80s music video, you can’t beat a vibrant ski suit with a colour-blocked, all-in-one baselayer underneath. With this yellow ASOS 4505 piece, you can turn heads like Chiara as you slalom down the slopes in a blur of vivid colour. Or you’ll be easily spotted sipping your warming latte on the café balcony as you take in the view – your choice.
Channelling a mash-up of 80s realness and modern cuts is one thing, but let’s get serious, it’s cold on top of a mountain. Like, really cold. Luckily, Chiara was shielded from the teeth-chattering temperatures by the suit’s water-resistant outer that acts as a barrier against rain and snow. Inside, she’s kept warm and toasty by a thermal lining that locks in body heat. Maybe there’s no need for that latte after all.
The North Face
If an all-in-one isn’t your thing, you can rely on The North Face – with 30 years of outdoor gear experience – to offer up some bold, tech-laden separates featuring that iconic, streetwear-scene-approved branding. This Decendit jacket is fully waterproof, breathable and insulated using TNF’s DryVent and Heatseeker technology, so Chiara could spend more time carving up the slopes without a care. For a pop of emergency orange, she’s sporting TNF’s Glacier fleece. Ideal for stepping up the colour scheme while adding an extra-snug layer.
All that colour up top means Chiara can afford to tone things down with her accessory choices. As a boardsports influencer, social media updates are vital – which is wear TNF’s insulated Montana gloves come in handy (sorry). An in-built, warming wrist leash doubles the cosy feels while E-Tip panels let her use a smartphone or tablet without risking frostbite in sub-zero temps. Goodbye blue hands, hello action shots and scenic selfies. Now, which way to the après-ski?
Here’s what Chiara said about her reasons to move:
Finish this sentence – I ski because…
It’s only me and the mountains, I can do whatever I want, no one tells me what to do. It’s not like other sports where there are lots of rules.
Who inspires you?
My parents always inspired me, I always wanted to ski as well as them. When I started freestyle skiing, I took inspiration from the girls that were already the best. I admired their strength and no-fear attitude.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is our new Netflix obsession. OK, at first we were shook by how scary it is in comparison to the original 90s version. But then we quickly fell in love with the show’s sinister storyline, intriguing characters, underlying social messages and – of course – its bewitching style. From headbands to gothic lace, ‘Brina and her crew serve up 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.

Hairbands are our new hero
TBF, Sabrina’s hairband should have its own shoutout in the show’s credits as one of the main characters. Whether she’s hanging with her human friends or battling the Weird Sisters at the Academy of the Unseen Arts, her headband is ever-present. If your outfit is giving you more trouble than Batibat the sleep demon, this is one <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> that magically pulls it all together. Plus, it gets extra points for banishing a bad hair day, too.
Lace summons the drama
There are lots of lace looks throughout the show to help bring the gothic realness. Our fave is when Sabrina wears her mother’s wedding <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> to her friend’s Halloween party (and her dark baptism, which she pops to afterwards – as you do). Even though Halloween is over, we might just cast a spell with a similar style at one of our party-season soirees.
A slinky slip dress casts a spell
Although the new version of Sabrina has none of the lols of the Melissa Joan Hart version, it does have some nice 90s fashion moments, like the old show. Take the slip dress ’Brina magically changes into at her dark baptism. While the scene had us on the edge of our seats, we must admit the oh-so-pretty frock did distract us for a sec. We smell another scarily good party option. Make like this street styler and pair it with cosy shearling to beat the chill.
A red coat makes everything better
The show is dark AF – both in its creepy storyline and overall colour scheme. But throughout, Sabrina’s ’fits manage to brighten things up with some fresh autumnal hues. In particular, her red coat cheers up even the most dreary of scenes, giving us a lesson in how outerwear can enliven our cold-weather lives. We’ll be throwing a cosy scarlet number over everything this season for a frightfully good look.
Hot under the collar
We must confess, the Weird Sisters are our new style icons. Yes, their ‘harrowing’ of Sabrina is pretty evil – but they look so good while they’re doing it. As well as dark lips and up-dos, the evil trio have reintroduced us to the power of the Peter Pan collar – and we’re not sure what we were doing without it. Wear a collar bib under jumpers and dresses already in your wardrobe and, hey presto: a tired looks gets transformed. Magic indeed.
