Winter can be cold, dark and a bit of a drag. But that doesn’t mean that your wardrobe should be too. It’s time to haul yourself out of your slump and spice it up this season with these fun trends that will undoubtedly lift your spirits.

Cosy capes

Not all heroes wear capes but any self-respecting friend of fashion is definitely wearing one this season. Capes don’t have to be heavy and drab to be warm. Make a statement with a cape that stands out from the crowd. Choose a fun print like leopard or pick a colour that stands out - hot pink is a seasonal winner to add a bit of ‘pop.’

Has your lifestyle during the Covid-19 lockdown affected the type of stains you get on your clothes?

Bucket bonnet

Somehow the bucket hat fails to conjure images of luxury and extravagance but this season that’s exactly where headwear is moving. The luxe bucket hat is nothing short of over-the-top – coming in a range of deluxe fabrics and prints. Moving from experimental streetwear to the high street, it was just a matter of time before the bucket hat reboot reached out to bigger wardrobes.

Knit with a twist

This year knitwear has taken an interesting twist. And it’s not simply about traditional shapes and colours anymore. While pullovers and knitted dresses are very much in this season the emphasis is definitely on colour choice and silhouettes. Classic knitwear has grown up – from sparkly scarves to full-length sweaters and bold knee-high socks, knitting is cooler than ever.

Butterscotch babe

While caramel and shades of butterscotch may sound like a delicious sweet treat, we are actually referencing to winter’s hottest colour palette. Creamy browns and smooth golden tones are fantastic to wear no matter your skin tone. Opt for a head to toe suit or a gentle accent and you are showing up in a big way this season. Because beige is not so boring if you know how to wear it.

Breakaway, break out, break the rules and enjoy winter from a whole new fashion perspective. To keep your clothes looking great season after season it’s all about good fabric care – follow the label care instructions and use good-quality laundry detergent and your clothes will serve you for years to come.
