With every New Year comes a call for a change. It’s time to clean out your closets, ladies, revamp your look and take some Fashion risks! Here are some trends we want you to try:
THOU SHALL BE THE CATS WHISKERS:
We love how Ainy always manages to give off saccharine sweetness with an edge! Cat prints are having a serious Fashion moment and are the alternative to wild animal prints, as shown by Miu Miu sending feline print coats and boots down the catwalk, then Vivienne Westwood producing a massive kitty print tee at her SS14 show and most recently, Miley Cyrus rocking up in a kitten print knicker and crop combo at the American Music Awards.
THOU SHALL HAVE A GOLDEN YEAR:
We love Aliaâ€™s gorgeous skin and golden tan, which she enhances with a classic and understated cream dress, gold watch and metallic gold heels. A true golden girl!
THOU SHALL EMBRACE STRUCTURE:
Our favourite fashionista gets it right with a subtly cut angular coat, patent boots and an architectural-shaped bag. And can we just say, we love the Robocop-esque shades!
THOU SHALL LOOSEN UP:
Who doesnâ€™t love relaxed tailoring? This look is casual and trendy, and we give extra points for the houndstooth print â€“ our favourite print this season!
THOU SHALL BE SHADY:
Best friends and style sistaâ€™s Hira and Zahra ace the Yoko Ono-esque shades that are so en vogue this season, adding serious attitude to their already stylish looks.
THOU SHALL PLAY PEEKABOO:
We love her old-school open-toed booties â€“ a great way to add an individual element to a casual winter ensemble.
THOU SHALL ROCK THY (ANKLE) BOOTIES:
Following her mothers footsteps, Liya gets casual-chic just right with aviators, a smart top and shawl, and winterâ€™s favourite accessory: the black ankle boot.
THOU SHALL CHANNEL THY ANIMAL INSTINCT:
Maha looks fabulous as always in this strapless python print dress. With a simple shawl, fun aviators and an electric purple python clutch for colour, Mahaâ€™s whole look comes together effortlessly. And lets not forget her best accessory: husband Nadir Firoz Khan on her arm.
THOU SHALL GET WAISTED:
Maira knows her body and puts her outfits together in an interesting way. Adding a skinny belt upgrades your party outfit and makes for a fantasticÂ (and flattering) silhouette.
THOU SHALL POINT AT STRANGERS:
Ladies, weâ€™re giving it to you straight â€“ our favourite footwear trend for Spring are pointy-toe shoes. Put your best foot forward in a style you fancy.
THOU SHALL BE A CAPED CRUSADER:
A cape adds elements of drama and glamour to any outfit. Take a cue from Monaâ€™s look, pick a gorgeous shade and material, dress it up or down, and get ready to look fashionable and feel comfortable!
THOU SHALL WEAR MORE ELAN:
You can always count on Khadijah Shah to design you the outfit of your dreams. Each outfit is a meticulously finished and jaw-dropping piece of art. Take our advice and invest in something Ã‰lan this yearâ€¦ You will be thanking yourself for months to come!
THOU SHALL ROCK THE URBAN TURBAN:
Take the plunge – Mix tribal and ethnic influences with a tough urban edge, but proceed with caution: this trend is not for the faint hearted!
THOU SHALL PRACTICE THY GEOMETRY:
Shape up! Think geometric and vibrant outfits that radiate modernity and look fresh.
THOU SHALL BE LOYAL:
Give the colour-blocking trend (that everyone needs to be over already) a run for its money and try out a monochrome ensemble. You can count on Sabene to mix up her look every now and then and get it just right.
THOU SHALL LOVE THY LEATHER:
Leather is one fabric you can adorn in a number of different ways and always stand out from the crowd. For those who have moved on from the leather leggings of last year, how about trying leather sleeves? We love the slicked back short hair and pointy flats, too.
THOU SHALL BE A TRAIL BLAZER:
The most functional piece in any womans closet â€“ we absolutely love this tailored and smart look from head to toe.
THOU SHALL GIVE A COLD SHOULDER:This seasonâ€™s hottest day and night-time accessory? Your clavicle. If the thought of showing cleavage or baring your midriff makes you cringe, dare to bare your shoulder for a sexy, sophisticated, elegant and old-school glamour kindaâ€™ look. Plus, off-the-shoulder pieces are flattering to a variety of body types.
THOU SHALL KISS A FROG AND FIND A PRINTS:
Say it loud and proud in floral, geometric, and loud prints. Mix, but donâ€™t match, and say hello to Spring in a fun and feminine print.
THOU SHALL PLAY WITH LEGO:
Your new playmate this season is designed by Karl Lagerfield: the quirky Chanel Lego Clutch.
