Okay, if we’re being honest, we would have never predicted that scrunchies would be the trend to lead the ’80s back into this millennium. After all, there are so many iconic trends from the decade of electro music and permed hair. Alas, such was not the case. Instead, the fabric hair accessory—which now comes in a variety of styles, prints, and textures—has dominated as one of the must-have items in recent years, making the case for investing in hair accouterments as a whole.
Whether you’ve already embraced the scrunchie movement with open arms or you’re just now swapping out your elastic hair ties for the gentler alternative, there’s no doubt that you deserve to have the best scrunchies in your arsenal of haircare—which is why we pulled them all together in one place.
Ahead, you’ll find the coolest scrunchie trends that we won’t stop wearing. Scroll down to see them all, and then add your favorites to your cart along the way.
If you’re at a loss for what type of scrunchie you want to add into your collection of hair accessories, start with a classic black style. Whether it’s a cool leather version or something that feels more whimsical like a silk organza option, there’s no going wrong here.
Scrunchies are no new trend to the scene, but it’s large, overexaggerated styles that have been catching the attention of fashion girls everywhere. Wear one of these billowing styles to make a chic statement.
If you’re going to incorporate scrunchies into your everyday hairstyles, why not take it back to the time when they were the It accessory? Go for retro prints and colors or opt for old-school textures, like patent leather.
For those of you who want to give your hair game a luxurious touch, you won’t regret wearing an elevated silk scrunchie, which will instantly dress up your hair.
Could there be anything more classic than a velvet scrunchie? Whether it comes with a sweet bow or a cool embellishment, this particular style is one that every fashion girl should own.

We’re talking minis, maxis and everything in between in all your favourite prints and styles, ready to take you into the next season. But since we’ve got so many dresses to choose from, we decided to help you out a bit and tell you which five dress trends you need to know about now…
- The chuck-on mini
Now that it isn’t pitch black outside in the morning and there’s hints of spring in the air, a chuck-on mini dress is all we can seem to think about. We can already picture ourselves wearing these at all those garden parties coming our way…
- The floaty midi
A floaty midi dress has long become a staple to wear all year round and we have plenty of new styles to pick from just in time for spring. Now, you just need to swap your boots and trench coat for sandals and mini-bags come summer.
- The night-out favourite
Now is the time to stock up on some seriously cool dresses for your next night out. Choose from sage slips, prairie-style dresses, sequinned numbers and bubblegum pink satin styles that are ready to take a spin on the dance floor.
- The ultimate slip
The slip dress is our ultimate sartorial saviour for just about anything. This season, we’re loving all things satin, cowl-necks, bow details and embroidery to make them feel brand new. Get ready to channel true ’90s minimalism whatever you’re up to…
- The denim number
Soon enough, our jeans will be pushed to the back of our wardrobes and replaced with a whole host of denim dresses instead. Look to button down details, zips and accentuated waist silhouettes that give us total Rachel from Friends vibes…
If you hadn’t already heard, Topshop IDOL just returned with a brand-new drop for Spring Summer 2020 and it’s the collection everyone wants to get their hands on. Inspired by the 1996 film Romeo and Juliet, it focuses on sheer fabrics, intricate prints and a lighter colour palette whilst still maintaining IDOL’s signature rock and roll edge. Expect tattoo prints, lots of texture and high-low pairings to kickstart your perfect new-season wardrobe. To give you a hand on the styling front, we’ve put together five outfits to get you even more excited…
- Dress of dreams
Introducing our summer evening dress of dreams: the embellished floral slip. It’s so nice it pretty much speaks for itself, so keep the finishing touches elevated but pared-back. We could see this look working for all those special occasions you’ve got coming up soon…
- That pink suit
Everyone here at Topshop HQ has been talking about this suit and it’s finally arrived! The high-waisted trousers and cropped blazer make for a unique silhouette and we’d make it feel even more exciting paired with a slogan tee, metallic heels and a chain bag.
- Spring please
Meet our favourite duo of the collection: this fluffy cardigan and crop top set. To achieve total spring vibes early, pair it with a flippy mini skirt and tie in the colours of the floral pattern with a green mini bag and woven flats.
- Fortune teller
A mini dress worn with chunky boots and bare legs always makes for a great look. We’re loving this tarot card printed lace slip and we can guarantee everyone will ask you where it’s from. Throw over a denim shacket and a nylon bag and you’re good to go.
- Tatted up
If you want to take this collection on a night out, pair one of our fitted tattoo print tops with a metallic skirt for a cool-girl edge. The outfit makes quite the statement, so keep it subdued when it comes to accessories and simply pair with some black heels and bag.
If, like us, you’ve spent the long rainy months of winter stuck in the same pair of boots, you’ll be happy to hear that a fresh set of shoe trends have just arrived for the new season. Even more excitingly, they’re all so good you’ll want to wear them right now. So, to help you decide which pair (or two) to invest in this spring, we’ve rounded up our five favourite new styles and looked to the curb-side sartorial specialists for styling inspiration. Just be warned: given how covetable all the options on offer are right now, it’s still likely to be a pretty tricky decision…
- The princess pump…
Metallic and in sugary-sweet pastel shades: some of our favourite mules at the moment look like they could have been plucked straight off the feet of a Barbie doll. To incorporate them into your look in cool street-style fashion, offset the ultra-pretty vibes with a checked smock dress. Then, tie the outfit together with colour-coordinated extras.
- The hi-tech trainer…
What was once a staple in the uniform of dads and Silicon Valley geniuses alike, has now become one of the most-loved footwear fashions of the moment. That’s right, hi-tech chunky trainers are in. Wear them with anything from streetwear to tailored trousers and midi dresses or add a lighter touch with a floaty floral midi and a beige bomber.
- The white boot…
The boot says ‘winter weather’, the lighter shade says ‘it’s spring’, making the bright white boot the ultimate transitional shoe. And whilst white will undoubtedly pair well with most of the pieces in your wardrobe, this street style star proves that they are particularly striking against a simple monochrome look, so, take note.
- The poppy mule…
Mules are the shoe everyone is talking about at the moment and the most popular pairs are vibrant and candy-coloured. Take your tailored occasion-wear to the next level this season by clashing a pair with your equally brightly-hued suit. Or, if you’re after something a little less loud, let your mules add a fresh pop of colour to a classic grey co-ord.
- The chunky boot…
It looks like our favourite chunky black boot is here to stay for another season. This comes as no surprise given their cool and comfortable shape, which makes us want to wear them with everything from floral dresses to vinyl trousers. Breathe new life into the grungy staple this season by wearing your pair with a crisp oversized white shirt, a vinyl mini skirt and a layered knit.
You didn’t think we’d stop listening to Anna Wintour in 2020, did you? As we’ve reported before, the editor in chief’s Go Ask Anna video series for Vogue is a treasure trove of information and offers us rare glimpses inside her mind. Sometimes she tells us what not to wear to a job interview and other times she’ll recap the biggest runway trends. Whatever the content is, you know it will be insightful and informed coming from one of the biggest names in fashion.
Since we now have a full year of videos to look back on, we decided to take a walk down memory lane and revisit some of Wintour’s key messages from last year. Hint: Raffia is in, and all-black is out. Scroll down to shop four trends Wintour has approved of and find out the three trends she’d pass on.
Loved: Sleeveless Dresses
Last summer, Wintour was asked in a video about the best item to stay chic in hot weather. Her answer: sleeveless dresses.
Hated: Boring Sequin Dresses
Wintour’s February 2019 video for Vogue discussed what not to wear to black-tie events. “Don’t wear a boring sequin dress or a debutante-style dress just because you feel you should,” Wintour said. “I get the most pleasure and the most excitement, and I think the person who’s wearing it does as well, when I look at a woman who’s wearing something that I feel looks just like her.”
Loved: Trench Coats
When asked about the top trends for 2020, Wintour made sure to include trench coats on her list. Luckily, there are tons of affordable yet chic options out there.
Hated: All Black
“Just don’t wear all black,” Wintour said in a video last spring. “It seems too gloomy, as if one’s going to a funeral.” Instead, she suggested “adding some color or favorite piece of jewelry or maybe white boots. Just something that’s a little bit unexpected.”
Loved: Bucket Bags
Last month, Wintour was asked about the best accessories trends and she made sure to call out bucket bags. “Bucket bags and more bucket bags, in leather, in canvas, in suede, in every possible fabric that you can think of,” she said.
Hated: Neon Leggings
In August 2019, Wintour revealed in a Vogue video that she had seen “far too many neon leopard-print leggings, something that I would definitely not want to see again.”
“We’re seeing a lot of linen and raffia fabrics that are very organic and natural,” Wintour said in response to a question about 2020 accessory trends.
Figuring out how to master your wardrobe in a professional setting can sometimes be difficult to navigate. It’s often a tricky balance to personal style with professional style in a work setting—and shoes are no exception. The issue gets even more complicated when fashion enters the equation. What are the best styles to wear, and which ones should you skip in the office?
To find out from a veteran of both the fashion industry and a professional office setting, I asked Michelle Scanga from Who What Wear to weigh in with her take on which shoes are best to wear at the office—and the style she wouldn’t recommend. “Wearing shoes that you can’t confidently walk in is a big no in my book,” she says, “along with sky-high stiletto heels.”
While towering stilettos are a no in her book, she has some recommendations for what to wear instead. “I think it’s better to err on the more conservative side and opt for a moderate heel height,” she says, “or you really can’t go wrong with a block heel.”
If you’re in the market for some new office-appropriate shoes that are also fashion girl–approved, go on to see my edit of the best new styles to add to your closet right now.
Moderate Heel Height
As Scanga recommends, a moderate heel height is always a great bet for the office. You can choose a style ranging from closed-toe slingbacks to open-toe sandals to ankle boots depending on your personal style and office culture.
These shoes are everywhere on the street style scene and a great option for the office as well.
Pumps this fall are finished with cool modern upgrades like these cutout side panels.
Another modern take on pumps.
You can’t go wrong with a classic.
For a little edge without going over the top.
Try out an unexpected color like lime green, which we’re seeing everywhere this season.
Sculptural heels are so trendy right now.
A croc finish is a great way to transition your boots to fall.
This style also comes in burgundy.
Strappy sandals are perfect for the office when paired with elevated trousers.
Another great office shoe style that Scanga recommends is block heels. The comfortable shoes are easy to walk in so are a great option to wear all day long.
Pair these with high-waisted trousers.
Some statement shoes you can wear to work.
These classic slingbacks get a cool upgrade with a snakeskin print.
Pair these with anything from a pencil skirt to a midi dress.
Slip into shoes from Jacquemus’s fall collection.
Here’s a summer style that can cross over to fall.
Look for boots with a block heel to pair with trousers and dresses.
Slouchy boots are everywhere for fall and are perfect for pairing with a long dress at the office.
Topshop’s latest trend edit ‘Vintage Bazaar‘ has arrived and it encapsulates everything we love about vintage clothing – without us having to rummage through a charity shop for hours to find all the gems. It’s all about the styling with this trend: think oversized blazer coats paired with retro floral dresses and croc ankle boots, or flowy blouses, high-waist shorts and mules. Keep scrolling to discover five ways to style the collection so you will totally get away with saying ‘it’s vintage’. We won’t tell if you won’t…
- Change your spots
Meet the new trending jean everyone is talking about – mid waist, bleach wash and a split hem to show off those new shoes. Pair the old-school classic with a leopard print top, a pearl bag and yellow tinted glasses to put a sepia filter on everything in sight.
- Oh so ’70s
The hero dress of the campaign is the ultimate multitasker – perfect for weddings, work, weekends and anything else your diaries got in store. Here we’ve paired it with biker boots and a mini white bag but some mules would also work perfectly for any more formal occasions.
- Collegiate chic
Look like you’ve just stepped out of a ’70s high school show in our Brooklyn slogan tee and yellow check blazer. Go for all-white everywhere else to keep the rest of the look subdued and crisp. We’re obsessed with this look if we do say so ourselves…
- Fembot cool
Is Spring here yet? This vinyl skirt and floral top duo is giving us total Austin Power vibes with a 2020 twist. Tie in the green on the top with this croc bag and throw on a pair of fresh white trainers to keep the look easy.
- Chasing knee highs
Channel Twiggy in the ultimate ’60s look we’ll never tire of – a mini dress with knee high boots. A little black bag with a matching headband are the perfect accessories and some gold hoops never go amiss as the finishing touch.
If you’re celebrating Chinese New Year, then you know that it takes place on January 25. But like with any event in the social calendar, there’s always a reason to think about what you might wear for such an occasion.
So I decided to pick the brains of InStyle China contributing editor and influencer Leaf Greener on the rules for dressing for the event. I wanted to know how much you needed to stick to traditional ways of dressing but also how to avoid offending anyone. She gave me three tips anyone can easily follow, but she also pointed out the one thing you shouldn’t do when picking out your look.
While traditions are still present, the event has definitely become more modern, so it’s surprisingly simple to find an outfit. Keep scrolling for four dressing rules to follow for Chinese New Year.
- Traditional Dress Is a Red Cheongsam
Style Notes: The traditional way to dress for Chinese New Year is to wear a qipao or a cheongsam frock. Leaf advised that traditionally you would wear this in red. Right now, there are many designers who have been influenced by this style. From Rixo to Attico to Prada, you can easily find a piece (in a wide range of colors!) that takes its inspiration from these dresses.
- Wear Something Sentimental
Style Notes: When I asked Leaf what she always wears on Chinese New Year, she replied that it was her grandmother’s diamond ring. While new clothes are preferable to symbolise new beginnings, there’s also an emphasis on family for the day, so it makes sense to honor those close to you.
- Red Is Lucky for Everyone But Luckier for Certain People
Style Notes: During Chinese New Year, red is considered a lucky color. Leaf told me that it means happiness, passion, and luck, which is why so many people wear it during the celebrations. But if it’s your zodiac year, red is an especially lucky color for you. How do you know if it’s your zodiac year? Find out which animal represents the year you were born, according to the Chinese zodiac calendar. Twenty-nineteen is the year of the pig, so get your rouge on if your birth year matches.
- Avoid All Black and White
Mules are everywhere we look right now: from our Instagram feeds to the best street style looks and all over Topshop’s new in section. And we’re not surprised – whether you go for an open, square or round-toe style, they add a fresh touch to any outfit and always look effortlessly cool. Not sure how to wear them? We picked our three favourite pairs and styled them for three different occasions…
- For a night out
Thinking of wearing a pair of mules on your next night out? Opt for a sleek black version and style them with a mix of different fabrics and textures, such as organza, embellishments and vinyl.
- For the office
For the office, go for a chic closed-toe style worn with your favourite pair of straight-leg jeans. Add a satin blouse, a statement coat and a trending handbag to look elegant with minimal effort.
- For the day
Need an extra special day look? We’ve got you covered. A pair of flare-heel mules guarantees compliments and will keep you comfortable at the same time. Now, just throw on a cool midi dress and a biker jacket and you’re good to go.
